- Nord Stage EX 88 – Nord’s latest offering serves up the very best of their award-winning technologies, with premium organ, piano, and synthesizer sounds at its heart. Anyone who’s seen or played a Nord will feel right at home in front of the Stage EX 88 – it’s got that same sleek-red vibe, as well as an ultra-tweakable panel right above the keys, for taking you inside its rich sounds and sophisticated effects section. What’s more, Nord’s famous smooth-moving pitch stick and modulation wheel are onboard, for expressive playing. Whether you’re after a spot-on B3 organ sound, a killer stage piano, or a ton of seriously thick synth leads and soundscapes, you’ll find all that – and more – on the Nord Stage EX 88.
- Ultimate Soundbank Electric Toy Museum – This is a sound expansion pack for the UVI Workstation, called a UVI Soundcard (although it’s not actually a soundcard) or MOTU MachFive. This insane collection offers up the sounds of 97 vintage and modern musical toys – all carefully sampled at 24-bit/96kHz quality. From the famous spelling “talking toys” to mini organs to classic toy keyboards and beyond, the Electric Toy Museum is loaded with fun, recognizable sounds from toys of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. You might even rediscover some electronic toy you had as a kid! Whatever style of music you produce, you’ll enjoy navigating into new sonic territory, with Ultimate Soundbank’s Electric Toy Museum.
- Alesis Surge 12″ Hi-hat – It has the look and feel of a real acoustic cymbal, because it’s carefully crafted of real brass alloy. The Surge 12″ hi-hat is for drummers who are accustomed to playing on acoustic kits, as well as for beginning drummers who are confined by noise limitations at home. The Alesis Surge cymbals deliver the crisp, accurate response you’d expect from an acoustic cymbal. Yet, they have all the benefits of being electronic, including a special clear dampening layer that covers the surface, so you can practice with acoustic realism at any time of the day (or night). Best of all, it’s remarkably affordable!
