Friday, May 29th, 2009

The words “synthesized piano” conjure forth the feeble, lifeless sounds of a plinky Casio keyboard, the sort of sound that would cause a concert pianist to lie on the floor, hands over their ears, screaming in agony. So, what if I told you that Roland’s new, £5000, V-Piano does away with the traditional, sample-based reproduction […]

Logitech G19 Quick ‘n’ Dirty Video Look

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

To pre-empt my full review of the Logitech G19 I’ve tossed together a very quick and dirty video using the Ricoh CX1 and a bit of iMovie magic. I’m not sure if it’s me or the camera that should be blamed for the atrocious quality. IE8 seems to have trouble with embedded YouTube videos, so […]
