MBL driver

On Saturday I attended the The High End Audio Show in Anaheim, my first hi-fi show in probably a decade or more. Normally I don’t go to these things, but my friends at Wireworld Cable Technology (thanks Larry and David) were gracious enough to supply a ticket, so I braved the traffic (unusually bad for a […]

New Music Gear Monday: Facebook 360 Spatial Workstation

Spatial Workstation

As I’ve stated in other previous posts, virtual reality is coming on like a nearly invisible distant freight train. It’s not apparent to the public yet because all the movement is behind the scenes, but believe me, it’s coming hard.

Shimon the 4-armed robot

I don’t know why I have such a fascination with robots playing music. I’ve covered many instances on this blog over the years (like the guitarist with 78 fingers and the robot band that plays Motorhead), and each time they get better at what they do.

Digital Drum Machine Creator Roger Linn On My Latest Inner Circle Podcast

Roger Linn

Drum machines and software are so common anymore that it’s not a big deal, but there was a time when the only thing that was even close was the beat box commonly found on organs. Roger Linn changed all that with his LM1, the first modern drum machine that used real drum samples, and he’s […]

New Music Gear Monday: Pickatto Bluetooth Guitar Pick

Pickatto Bluetooth guitar pick

Just about everything has a Bluetooth connection on it these days, but a guitar pick? If you’re curious what you might want with a connected pick, then it’s time to meet Pickatto, the brainchild of guitarist Michael Murawski. Murawski found that while most guitar players have a pretty well-developed fret hand, their picking hand lagged behind. Pickatto […]

Aerosmith is one of those bands that seems to get better with age. If you go back and listen to some of their earlier tracks, they were always fairly unique and came from an interesting place that never seems dated. “Walk This Way” from their Toys In The Attic album has been a hit several […]

Motown’s Funk Brothers Instrumental Track – “Going To A Go Go”

Going To A Go Go

There’s so much to learn from the old Motown records in terms of arrangements and groove. You can hear more when you strip off the lead vocal and just listen to the instrumental track laid down by The Funk Brothers (the Motown house band), which is what we’ll do today with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles […]
