Stuff to add to your wishlist


Here’s the real reason why I wanted the blog up and running: So I could tell you all about the PlusDeck.


The PlusDeck 2 is a full-logic cassette deck for your PC. Use it to archive your old cassette tapes of 80s hair bands into digital media files for playback on your PC. Or better yet, archive your favorite audio files or streams onto cassette – perfect for playback in your ’78 Midget that is still not sporting an in-dash CD player.

Oooh, what a shiny little gadget


The new CS-32
MiniDesk
is a miniature control surface for fast access to the most commonly used
functions in most audio programs. It works with Digidesign ProTools, Digigram X-Track,
Steinberg Nuendo, Cubase SX, VST, MOTU Digital Performer, Soundscape REd, Cakewalk
Pro, Sonic Foundry, Abelton Live, Merging Technologies Pyramix, Logic Audio and Most
Audio Software Programs!

It’s around the size of a A4/Letter page. I’ve been using Cubase SE for a while,
I guess this little thing would be compatible with it as well as it’s basically a
stripped down SX. There is definitly something to be said for physically twiddling
the knobs and hearing the sounds. I’m sure it’s pretty good value for money, but the
swedish price (6500 SEK) is a little too much for me. The US price is $400 (around
2900 SEK), which makes it a little more affordable, even with import duty added. Anyone
know of any good US online stores that deliver to Sweden?
