The NAMM TEC Awards, “recognizes the individuals, companies and technical innovations […]

NAMM 2010 photos

Friday, January 15th, 2010

I’m trying out something different for my visit to NAMM this year. My I’m uploading photos directly from the phone and you can view them on facebook (which bounces out to twitter):
I had to leave Anaheim last night and will miss the show today, but I’ll be back down at the convention on Saturday […]

NAMM 2009

Monday, January 19th, 2009

So…. The Props did not have a booth at the 2009 Winter NAMM, and they were missed. I ran into a lot of people asking where they were hiding and had to deliver the sad news. I wish I could say that this left a large void at the convention, but it didn’t. […]

Thoring in my Sleep

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

My NAMM report is still on hold until I can finish up a few outstanding projects. I wasn’t in the best of spirits during the week leading up to annual Music Manufacturers Convention, but I’m certainly glad I went. The first day there was not without a bit of drama, but I learned […]

Getting Ready for NAMM 2008

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

The annual NAMM convention is going to be a bit different for me this year. I’m slated to present at the Propellerheads booth along with Josh Mobley (Neoverse). We’re going to have a little live demonstration of MPR4. I’ve also put together a little Live PA remix of Narrow Escape which incorporates […]

NAMM 2007

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Despite arriving early to NAMM this year, I’m a little late getting to the report, but that’s ok, since I think everyone has already hear the big news from the Propellerheads and the announcement of a new synthesizer aptly named “Thor”. Right around 10:30am on Thursday morning, James Bernard went into a demonstration of […]

THOR Polysonic Synthesizer

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Ok, the full NAMM report is coming, but please don’t get your expectations up too high. I seemed to have caught some kind of bug during the trip and have been ill since I returned. In the meantime, you should check out the news on the Propellerhead Software Website and check out the […]

NAMM 2006 Day 4

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

Day 4 started off fairly slowly. I know I didn’t cover the entire show in detail, but I paced myself and in some ways saved the best for last. It was definitely nice to see the number of analog modular synth systems slowly growing. Despite all of the new software applications and […]

NAMM 2006 Day 3

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

Saturday night wasn’t too crazy, but i’m feeling the effects of old age combined with loud music, disrespectful punks, and junk food. Even with the triple shot espresso beverage my brain isn’t quite working yet, so this entry is going to rely more on the pictures rather than the words. I took a […]

NAMM 2006 Day 2

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

There are certainly more people at NAMM on this year than the previous years. This probably explains why I had such a hard time securing a hotel room. The first couple of days have seen fairly large crowds, making it really difficult to leisurely go around to the different booths. My first […]

NAMM 2006 Day 1

Friday, January 20th, 2006

Yes, it’s once again that time! Winter NAMM 2006. I’ve arrived fashionably late this year, leaving me with only a few hours to see the show on the first day. The first interesting change is the new Propellerheads booth which no longer sits in the highly coveted software row. The new […]
