    The Continuum controller / Jack and Lauri from Notion talking to Christopher Stone from Audio Impressions:



    The continuum fingerboard controller was very impressive. Real time vibrato control and glissando. An expressive controller like this is needed to break away from the limitations of midi keyboards. Very cool!

    Wow, I second Dan's comment re your daughter Jenny! I wish I was 40 yrs younger!!

    Thanks a lot for these photos Gary. What a treat to see the faces behind the characters! Some surprises for me........for example, why would I have thought that Kirk Hunter was older than he appears? Also I want to know what diet Jim Ortner has been on.....I'm sure he wasn't as fit looking in the first photos I saw of him

    regards

    Frank

    Wow! What a goofy grin on my face in the Ernie Rideout picture! You could tell it was getting to the end of the last day.

    Frank, I've been on Weight Watchers for the last 3 years. I've lost 60 pounds and now I'm basically on a maintenance diet to keep the weight off.

    The Dweez was getting a demo of the Strad and JABB. He is already a GPO user. Dweezil was also giving a performance at the Native Instruments booth. The Dweez is totally cool
