i just picked up a mini-KP (the fx processor) for rockin' live / jam stuff with the mpc. a little smaller and less precious than using my 404 for this.

good lil box. lots o' fun.

Just picked up a BOSS DE-200 delay rack unit on bay for $30. It's 12-bit digital from 1983. FUCK YES! It's got a hold function and trigger sync, so it can sync with Roland drum machines. Hooked up the sync to the rim/trig of my TR-707 and the actual delay to my 404. Got some really cool sounds, tempo synced delay with 16 step sequencing/gating.

Next piece of gear: my first rack compressor

Damn that is quite a deal. Did they think it was a broken VCR or something?

I KNOW. It was sitting next to a VCR, actually. I played dumb and said "How much for this goofy old thing?"

The guy said "A friend of mine gave me that. I don't even know what it is. Two dollars." I have literally had dreams about scores like this happening.

I walked it to a guitar shop (2 blocks away) and told them what happened, rec'd a high-five, and we plugged it in and it worked.

Some buttons don't trigger correctly. Cleaning the trigger buttons this weekend. All the EPROMS are good, as the sounds all trigger via MIDI. It's had the kickdrum chip replaced with a Linn sound. Also, some jacks on the front are wired to the kick and snare buttons; it must have been rigged up to trigger something externally.

Gonna do a little blog post on this in the coming weeks, will post a link here w/ more photos.

What a steal!

You know that you can easily put your own sounds on it using a standard eprom burner? Turn it into an 808 :)
