here's the latest incarnation of my home studio. sonar 7 running on a quad-core intel box with a pulsar scope ii card.. with a whole ton of keyboards (the sh-101 is still my favorite, of course) and my basses. i'm still trying to figure out how to get the akai working with sonar, but i'm sure it won't take too much longer (i hope)

This metal-clad eight-voice monstrosity was extremely powerful for its time, but it was an unreliable beast, crashing spontaneously, one time in the middle of a gig. I shipped it to Roland in California twice for repairs, but the crashes continued. I paid $4600 for it back around 1981, I think.
This was a marathon performance for performers listed on the 61 to get bump-bombed and promoted so the public would get an idea of the music going on in SL. I tried to tip everyone a decent amount, but in the end this violated my principle of giving 10,000L or more to any live musician in the tower. I have tried to make up for that with Tunes inSL.
