NOT seen at NAMM this week: a MIDI trumpet AND a full roundup of MIDI bagpipes, both blogged by the inimitable Tom Whitwell at Music Thing. Tom, see if you agree with me on this: we need an alternative NAMM for all the really cool stuff. (And strangely, now everything will look incredibly cheap to me after Korg's $8,000 Oasys. Easily 10 MIDI bagpipes, or one and one half high-end MIDI bagpipes.)
