Liz McLean Knight and I are converging in Anaheim to bring you coverage from the NAMM show floor for the coming days, inaugurating a new CDM video channel and bringing you our biggest NAMM coverage ever. Beatportal posted their own NAMM 2008 preview with some speculation of their own from Francis Preve. Here’s who I’m looking for at the show to post some interesting stuff:
Moog (ah, Moog), Focusrite/Novation, Cakewalk, IK, Numerology, Access (the new Ti Snow, an affordable virus!), Roland/Edirol, Korg, Yamaha (but don’t expect a Tenori-On), Sony Creative, Native Instruments (they scheduled a press conference), M-Audio and their Torq line, Doepfer (the analog synth people), CME, Digidesign, Steinberg (showing off VST3), Ecler, PreSonus. John Lennon’s got a new bus. And Dave Smith and Roger Linn might even bring along the new LinnDrum. That’s just for starters.
What sounded like a quiet show for us promises to be anything but. Even the analog synth world has a few surprises in store. No time for rumors, or even press shots: it’s all live and in-person in a few short hours. And if you’re in Anaheim, hope to see you there!
