   Vernon Reid brought his Yohimbe Bros project down here to Dago and his
singer ran though a Kaoss Pad. she had control of everything from stage and
its small enough to fit on a music stand. sounded wicked and the new ones
have some looping capabilities i hear. no MIDI but you could still be in
control if thats what your going for (mixing booze, singers and hard FX is
risky from my experience).
    theres a circuit bender in Tucson with a gift for twisting signal and
gear experiments. check it.

      good luck
