It's no secret that Christmas is my favorite time of year. I have my Christmas tree up and decorated, nine and a half feet --though I'm still looking for the right size candles for it. Last year I was in Germany just before Christmas and it was much easier to find Christmas tree candles. If anyone knows where to find them in America please let me know in the comments.
In other news, I have bonded a bit with my Roland MC-202. I took it with me to Maryland where I was recording vocals and mixing the record, in case I needed to throw on any last minute synthesizer parts, and I did, and I was very pleased with the sound of this little box. I still agree with the popular notion that the built in sequencer is senselessly difficult, but I feel that way about most sequencers so I'm probably not the guy to ask about that sort of thing. CSQ or nothing! That's my motto.
If only the MC-202's casing was metal rather the plastic... it would have been just perfect. It just seems a little toyish in it's plastic casing. I still like it. It is really portable. Sometimes that's important. You can just throw it in your bag and hop on a bus to Maryland. Easy!
Oh, PS, I'm working on a little Christmas surprise for you.
