Just joined the forum in earnest (did some lurking for a while). I have been very impressed by the posts and the music you members make!
Quite a good group, and I am glad to be here.
Quick Bio: Played in a Chicago 'Beatles Era' garage band in the 60s (keyboards... Farfisa organ!). Started performing in clubs and coffeehouses in college (guitar and solo vocals, singer/songwriter in Chicago/upper Midwest through 70s and 80s).
Day job as a journalist, then back to school in computer science for masters degree. Ran an advanced tech group for about 10 years, then started consulting. Been doing that since '96.
First sampler synth in 1985 (the Ensoniq) formed core of my midi studio. Now a Sonar/Kurzweil/Garritan setup with a homebuilt Windows DAW. Did some radio/TV music on the side.
Anyway, I hope to learn a lot here....and have some interesting discussions.
From what I see already there is a WEALTH of talent on this discussion forum!
