Quick update

What a month this is turning out to be!

First of all, my sincere apologies for the lack of new content, I'm in the middle of packing up to move house at the moment, so nothing is happening musically outside of college.

On the keyboard front, I have a new board, a Roland D50. I hadn't paid much attention to the D50 before, but now I've got one I can see why it's gained a reputation as a classic.

I've had voice chip problems with my Juno-106 recently too, chip #2 broke down completely, and couldn't even be saved by removing it's resin coating (as suggested by youtube user rolandsh1000 in his video here. Replacement chips (albeit clones of the original) are available from Analogue Renaissance, and they are amazing. They sound the same as the originals, but are so much more stable (I have one in my Juno already) I'm looking forward to getting it so I can get the board back up and running.

In other, more personal news, I have a conditional offer for Teeside university to do a degree in music technology next year. It was my first choice, so I'm thrilled to be accepted.

Oh, one last thing, Peter Gabriel released his latest album this week, Scratch my Back. It's an album of interesting arrangements of other artists' songs. Some of the songs on there are easily the best covers I have ever heard, especially "Heroes" by David Bowie. It's well worth checking out.
