It's Gettin' Hot In Herre...

by Chris Randall

So, a glance at the calendar (well, a glance at, which is the functional equivalent) shows that NAMM 2015 is just around the corner. It seems like only 10 months ago I was at NAMM 2014, trying to keep the secret of this massive sequencer we were about to make. How time flies!

Anyhow, I'm pleased to report, for those of you that attend this heady event, that Audio Damage will have a booth for the 2015 show. Or, rather, we'll be part of the WMD "Manufacturer's Booth." Which is conveniently chock full of all your favorite Euro guys, along with some other various things. (Let's just say that Audio Damage will be the only ones there with software.) The WMD booth backs up to the Schneidersbureau booth, so that whole neighborhood in Hall A is gonna have some ridiculous bleepings and bloopings going on.

Adam and I will both be attending the entire show, as well as our little booth betty, Jeremy Highhouse. Jeremy is picking out his outfit now. I personally lobbied for "Naughty Elf," but I think he's leaning towards "Naughty Leprechaun."

My next task, which will hopefully not prove too monumental, is to design our little mini-booth so that it looks cooler than the other mini-booths, since that's important to me. Cutting of aluminum will be involved.

Which brings me to the actual point of this post: I'd just like to mention that I am extremely grateful for the support of this community of musicians that allows me to do cool shit like having lasers blasted at a sheet of metal until a robot appears, instead of having to go to an office every day and do stupid shit for other people that I hate. I honestly love everything about my job, and am incredibly lucky that it pays the mortgage. I don't think I say that often enough, so I'm saying it now.

It's going to be REALLY AWKWARD if I go to NAMM and someone else is wearing the same Naughty Leprechaun outfit as me! I might have to go with my backup look, "Sexy Baron Harkonnen."

Woah! Sexy Harkonnen . . .

Now where do you find a tiny green leprechaun hat to bobby pin on at a jaunty angle?

and Chris: I am extremely grateful that you live my dream by what you are doing, thanks for letting us be a part of all this by writing and posting your visions, thoughts and procedures...

I think you could set up a rack with a dozen of each of your modules, along with a couple of your sequencers and set it howling like a zero-input mixer on crack.

And that's why I'm in the business of selling things and you're not, I think, in a nutshell. :-)

Which Harkonnen would that be, then? Hopefully not Sting.

Sean sent me a private photo of his NAMM costume. He asked me not to share it, but I just can't help myself.

Oh, boy! That'll be easy to spot!
