This generation has created a whole new type of superstar/celebrity with the DJ. I have to admit that I admire them with their ability to make music something truly awesome with often just "two tables and a microphone". A company known as Playtime Engineering has created a very intelligent children's toy with the Blipblox Toy Synthesizer. I really had no idea what to … [Read more...] about Blipblox Toy Synthesizer Review
I always like when I get the chance to review some IK Multimedia products, and when it came time to review a keyboard from them, I jumped at the chance.

In writing about the PonoPlayer, I had to wonder when was the last time I reviewed an MP3 player? It seems like before 2005, I was writing about them all of the time. I guess the iPhone killed the traditional iPod, or was it the iPod Touch? Whatever the case, the PonoPlayer isn't really an MP3 player per se, as it can support all kinds of audio formats such as FLAC, ALAC, … [Read more...] about PonoPlayer bringing back the MP3 player?
I think most of us have one of those synthesizer keyboards in our home, and maybe we use it often, even if it is just for fun. The Roli Seaboard, that's right, Seaboard, is ready to take it to the next level. You know how most synthesizers need to have knobs turned and such just to produce interesting sound? The Seaboard has a rubberized surface so you essentially bend … [Read more...] about Roli Seaboard takes synthesized music to the next level
