Roland PC-180 A

Roland PC-180 A

Roland’s ‚desktop music‘ (horrible term) series has more of a pro-level style than the entry-level range of their Japanese counterpart, Yamaha. The PC-180 bridges the gap between the smaller PC-160 and larger PC-200 MkII (both of which are apparently now defunct). The full-size keys stretch just over four octaves (that’s 49 keys) and offer velocity-sensitivity, but still no aftertouch. Aftertouch is available via one of the extra keyboard functions, but that’s hardly intuitive and doesn’t add much to the performance. However, you do get the usual Roland combined-pitch-and-modulation-stick to add expression and there’s a socket for a sustain pedal on the rear panel.

Ensoniq ASR-10

The ASR-10 stands for the Advanced Sampling Recorder – a completely digital music production studio. It’s a 16-bit sampler that came in both keyboard and rack-mount versions. It shipped with 2 MB of sample memory which could be expanded to 16 MB for a few minutes of stereo cd-quality sampling time. It lets you choose from sample rates of 30 to 44.1 kHz and has all the professional sample editing functions you would expect to find from a pro sampler including autolooping, volume smoothing, normalize, crossfading, and time comp/exp. Even resampling through its effects, EQ, etc. is possible!

During a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden on July 30, 2005, Till Lindemann suffered a knee injury when Flake accidentally ran into him with the Segway he rides during the performance of Amerika. This caused concerts scheduled in Asia to be canceled.
