Roland Aira Photos & VideoIt looks like a vocal transformer, a bassline synth, an 808 drum machine, and a synthesizer called System 1. The lighting and LEDs on the machine definitely make it look attention grabbing. If the “System 1″ is a cool synthesizer, I might want it very badly. I love groove-synths!

Nord Lead A1Here is a first look at the Nord Lead A1 and it looks pretty great. The simplified controls and interesting oscillator section will make this a winner. I might like to have this!

Analog Synths Under $700 Compared

What is The Fastest Mac Per Dollar For Audio?
Here we have a collection of Macintosh boxes, mostly portables, to see which is the best value for the dollar. What matters is raw computing speeds since we use them for audio. Used Mac Pros and a Refurb Mac mini was thrown in. Most of these are Apple store prices, and all should have 256GB…http://goo.gl/3I2wP4
