Specifically, I want to know what the product in the box labeled "Up!" contains. I know what the Alesis iODock is already. Thanks.

An old guy, an Asian kid, and a dog.

 

Looks like a carousel for a slide projector. Must be how he views the Episode VII dailies.

Heheh...

 

It looks to me like a circular MIDI triggering system... but I have no idea.

Looks like a filter of some kind, that would fit in a device, not the device itself.  But how many filters have such nice packaging?

 

But then why would he be carrying it around to a recording session?

 

So it must be something else.  The wording on the package may not be English... I can't tell.

 

 

Edit:  I perused a few areas over at Sweetwater music and didn't see any devices that looked at all like that picture.

 

A mic filter of some kind?  Too small...  Acoustic treatment?

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

A high tech Simon. A better question is why a über rich guy has such a bad hair cut? lol.gif

LOL.

 

Haven't seen a Simon in sooooo many years.  Do the young ones of today know what they are?

 

JJ would be old enough to remember...

Cool.  I live out of the country so I have lost touch with what the kids are playing with.

Getting it for Christmas and playing with it are 2 different things. He played with it for about 30 minutes and that was it. lol.gif

Well, Simon was really meant for a group of people to play...at least it used to be.

In hindsight I should've let him win a few times. lol.gif
