My gear setup in 1997
« on: November 04, 2012, 01:53:08 PM »
Hello

Just unearthed this video of me playing with my electronic music gear in 1997.  I don't expect the music will be of much interest to the Frosties* but the gear might.  The camerawork is pretty shonky though.

A Yamaha TQ5 is the master sequencer and sound source and goes direct in stereo into the Tandy mixer. The TQ5 provides midi clock and sync out to a Boss Dr550 drum machine, which is in pattern play mode (so I change the patterns manually using the keypad) and is running into the Yamaha REX-50 which is set on a compression patch; this then runs in stereo into the Tandy mixer. The TQ5 is also providing midi-note information on channel 1 to the Freebass FB383 which is an analogue 303 synth clone. This is running into a Boss DM3 analogue delay pedal (with the pedal removed for easier access to the switch) and then into a Marshall Guv'nor, running in mono into the mixer on a mic channel...

Hope you dig it!

My gear setup for '97 was the same as ''87. it was also the same in'07. In 2011 it changed very, very slightly. :mrgreen: :twisted:  :mrgreen:

In '87 my gear was my Antoria Les Paul copy.  In '07 it was a computer. Somehow now in 2012 I have amassed all of it and am wondering exactly what to do with it!  :roll:
