Re: Dangerous (learning) curves (was Fast & Trashy, Slow and Chaste)

Oh Max.  You are a wise man.  I'm always struggling with the same 
thing.  My problem is I "hear" something in my head and I want to 
recreate it live.  I feel I'm about at a good balance point.  Not quite 
a guitar, a DL4 and an amp, but I'm getting there.  I've done a few 
shows with the the Echo Pro and an amp, and I must admit I felt limited 
after a while.  I'd get a nice loop going and I couldn't help but 
think, "man, it sure would be nice if I could slip in a little break 
beat right now..."

My point is, I think there is a place between instrument and DL4 and 17 
EDPs and a 12 space rack of processing gear.  I know this doesn't make 
for much of a show, but that's what Maria's for!  I think a blend of my 
schtick and a woman with only a mic is a damn good blend.

That's why I got rid of my Adrenalinn.  I never seemed to get over that 
"gee whiz" point.  I think I just got to a point where I thought, "If I 
want an arpeggiator, I'll just use a synth and be done with it.
