Just a song

I have put together a fairly nice little studio in my gameroom.  After years of playing rhythm games, I decided I'd like to try making music.
That's over $1500 worth of electronic goodies on my table.  Here's a break down;

The keyboard at the top is just an electronic keyboard.  Below that is a Microkorg XL synthesizer. Below that is a Korg Electribe EMX (the heart of my setup).  To the right of that is a Kaoss Pad 3.  Above that is my Nintendo DSi XL with the Korg DS-10 synth running on it.  Finally at the bottom left is my mixer where all the audio signals come together.

Due to time restraints, I've only made a few songs on the DS-10 so far (remember these songs are coming solely from a Nintendo DS!).  Here is my latest one.

So let me know what you think.  Expect bigger and better things when I have time to use my more expensive toys.  Any other aspiring musicians viewing?

  9. Pretty good setup. I used to do a lot of home recording, now I just manage bands/artists and stuff. Keep at it, it's fun and there's money to be made doing it.
