Time to re-flash the studio!
I was almost too busy to notice that all of my software-upgradeable music gear got major updates this week. The Nord Electro got a new OS revision and the new piano sounds that users have been waiting over two years for. The long-discussed Nord Modular G2 OS update came out, with the nifty genetic-algorithm patch mutator features. And the Akai MPC 1000 version 2.0 OS also dropped, adding pitch adjust, time stretching, and the ability to user-install an internal hard drive with the purchase of a $29 adapter. Dang!
