Making good music takes good equipment and good equipment doesn't come cheap. As much as I can, I try to come up with the most awesome tunes out of cheap stuff. Mainly, I use a small keyboard, an outdated PC that freezes when I play call of duty and cheap headphones from the local department store. At least now I have good quality bass headphones that I can work on given as a present.
I know I'm suppose to write this to Santa but might as well share it with you guys. What I really want for Christmas is this thing:
It's an Akai MPD26. I've been wanting to try out launchpads and what their true potential is in the flesh. But as always, money is an issue. That's almost $200 in Amazon and eBay with shipping outside the United States. Anyways, I don't think Santa is ever giving this sweet baby to me; I've been really naughty this year, maybe on the next I'll have my luck and save up.
But at least I got a consolation prize. This:
It's not much but I'm happy I have this baby. At least I can actually take hold of an instrument that I can use in making music. We really love Akai don't we?
See you next post!
