Happy New Year!

Hello everyone, happy new year! Quick update on what's going on with me and my keyboards.

I've got the Pianet in better shape than it was, I've cleaned it up, realigned the rubber pluckers, adjusted the key action and re-magnetised a few of the reeds. I really need to sit down and tune it properly, but for now it's good enough. I've been playing it through a practice amp with my Electroharmonix Small Stone phaser and it sounds lush.

I've been exploring the Microkorg and programming a few of my own patches. I'll post some of them at a later date, I have a pretty good approximation of the Moog patch used by Rick Wakeman on "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" that I'm happy to share.

I'm packing down most of my gear in preparation for moving apartment, so I don't think there will be any more videos for a while, at least not from here.

As for me, I had a busy few weeks before Christmas, my college band put on our christmas shows, so I was busy rehearsing for those. I'll have some videos of the two nights that I'll put up on Youtube. I have some recordings of one of our rehearsals that I'll post separately as MP3s.
