monkey king the musical

chinese musical based on a traditional story 'journey to the west' . not the best production ever, but i was impressed still. the storyline kinda sucks, but all other efforts they got are brilliant.

presonus just announced the 24 channels version of the studiolive mixer in the namm show, which is awesome.  16 channels is just slightly not enough for my applications.  but now this is definitely one of the consideration for this year.

let me go through a few things that gets my attention.

live setup


my setup of july, 2009.  here's the chain

  • musicman bongo HS
  • squier classic vibe 60's jazz bass
  • ovation acoustic, from mak wai
  • apple macbook
  • motu 828mkii
  • carl martin compressor/limiter
  • line 6 pod x3 live
  • markbass f1
  • markbass traveller 102p

good thing about this setup is that they can be packed and transported in 1 trip when needed(w/o the acoustic gtr),  2 is alot better tho.
