been a while

yeah, well,
it has been a while. I've been sorta 'laid up'. I got 'doored' by the passenger of a car service (nicer than
a cab, cheaper than a limo) car over a month ago. I ended up going down on my right wrist hard enough
to fracture my scaphoid bone. Fancy doctor ended up putting a fancy pin in my wrist. That hurt like hell
after the nerve block wore off.

It has been 6 weeks of no bike for me so far which has been at least a little of a drag. After the first 2 weeks
with the cast on I started to regain use of my right hand. I've been working on a record with my good friend
(good enough to come and pick me up from the hospital kind of good friend) Chip Robinson here at my
home recording set up. Chip and I have been getting together for fancy coffee and recording. We may have
started out making some sketches but they are turning into paintings.

Thanks to Chip for getting me home from the hospital and thanks to everybody for all the get well notes.

Down here (in Tasmania), a component of everybody's car registration fee is a kind of insurance to pay for whoever gets hurt by a car to get medical treatment - including ambulances. Good idea, I think.
Hope the mending goes well.

No offense intended Roscoe. I tried to find brevity in the situation. I am sorry if u felt an insulted nature had occured in my comment. I love your music and I hope your guitar and biking arm are back up to where they should be real soon.

You have to check out XLN's Addictive Drums if you haven't already. Great stuff.

EZDrummer beats 'em all for patterns. Sounds are pretty darn good too. I have all of the expansion kits.

Battery is the best stand alone drum sampler. I have my own custom recorded and mixed to analog samples of my own kit at CTS that i can drag and drop into Battery

Funny you mention that, cause a good friend of mine works at Native Instruments and he has done quite a bit of R&D on Battery 3

Roscoe, have you ever worked with speaker simulators like the Palmer PDI-03? What do you think about them?
Cheers, Arthur

I've used the Palmer DI. Great stuff. I have a H&K Red Box that I used to use as a speaker simulator. It is pretty good but at home I try to leave everything setup and ready to go. The Pod XT is a lot smaller and tweakable than the Supro/Red Box setup that I used to use. At the studio I use amps so none of this is needed.

I understand. I bought the Palmer PDI-03 and use it together with my MAZ Jr. -even on stage. Sounds great! Our Soundman is happy and I can transport my stuff even in my 2-seat-roadster. ;-)
Cheers, Arthur

Thanks for the rundown on the gear. I'm getting ready to take my first stab at setting something up at home.

Sorry to hear about the crash. Must be scary for a professional musician to have a hand injury. Seems like you are on the otherside of it now. That nerve block can really put you into a false sense of security.

Good luck and hopefully you are on the bike again soon.
