I want to formally thank the following forum members and snorchat participants for helping me with a terrible personal problem...
Stephanie Pray (the artist formerly known as Moviemaestro)
I was having trouble convincing my wife that I REALLY had to have an AKAI EWI USB and have it NOW, not on December 25th.
These four brave souls supported their friend (and intellectual guiding light) Snorlax by mounting an intense email campaign aimed at getting Mrs. Snorlax to relent and let Snor buy his AKAI now.
After reading the vast influx of 4 emails, Mrs. Snorlax saw the error of her ways and relented. Snor has placed his order with Patchman Music & will soon be using the EVI portion of this fine device, of course with the mighty ARIA player.
Now all I need is talent. Anyone wanna loan me some??
A tip of the hat to these supporters for their good humor and willingness to play along.
