May 13 - Pocket Synths! + Report from MoogFest

This month, Rick Reid will demo and discuss some of the smallest electronic musical instruments on the market... most of them small enough to fit in your pocket. Ranging from creative toys like dubreq Stylophones to powerful looping synths like the Korg Kaossilator 2, these instruments will help you spark new ideas and create big sounds in small spaces. (If you have a favorite pocket synth, bring it along with some headphones and show it off during our mingling time.)

Also, Rick will bring some photos and memories from MoogFest 2014. This year's scheduled performers and guest speakers includes Kraftwerk, Petshop Boys, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers, and Keith Emerson.

Schedule for the night:

7:00-7:30 Welcome + Order Up Food and Drink

7:30-8:15 Rick Reid Presentation

8:15-8:30 Group Intros

8:30-9:25 Mingling and Hands-on

9:25-9:30 Wrap-up,  and settle-Up

    I talked briefly about the vocoder function of the Korg mini Kaoss Pad 2. Here's a link to a recording that demos several of the vocoder patches. https://soundcloud.com/rickreid/all-circuits-are-busy

    Rick did a great job telling us about Moogfest and showing off the cute little pocket synthesizers he had. An unusual and fun meet up, with lots of inspiring ideas.
