    Oh - and it harkens back to my youth, and no doubt a few other folks’ youths here. 11Top and Les will be able to identify it right away, I’m sure.

    Edited to add a visual hint...

    New Gumby, dammit!!!

    [​IMG]

    Saw it in a local record store at lunch yesterday and didn’t buy it. But it stuck in my head all afternoon, so I grabbed it last night and put it down on my music desk this afternoon while I was setting up my new controller surface. I haven’t bent this one much (it is very flexible), but I remember having several of these as a kid, and after so many bends, a wire would usually stick out as the rubber started to split.

    Thought about buying a Bad Girl Lois action figure, too, but there’s only so much of this my wife can stand in one day. Although I think she likes the idea that I might buy a Rick James Funko...

    Gumby! I loved playing with Gumby as a kid.

    But now I want to see the new controller surface.

    Mr. Potatohead is disappointed to being relegated to the Island of Misfit Toys. “No one wants a Charlie/Alan-in-the-Box...”

    Any relation?



    And with our impending Brexit, this one’s quite topical!



    Hope your digit is slightly more flexible!

    I'd love to have Mr. Bill on there somewhere. I have the old Mr. Bill Show book still. For a TV class in high school, I wanted to do How Mr. Bill Becomes A Law (would have needed a Tonka truck to explain overriding a veto), but I was outvoted.

    I still quote Mr. Gumby.

    The fingers getting there - still a lot of swelling. But it's getting there.

    PreSonus Faderport 8. Motorized faders, the controls can be changed to adjust pan, EQ, or plug-in settings. It was almost as easy to set up as a guitar pick - seriously. It’s designed to work with Studio One - very tight integration - but it also has modes that allow it to work with other DAWs like Logic and ProTools.

    The closest thing I had to an issue was a misunderstanding on my part. When I saw it in the store, it wasn’t connected to anything and was in Studio One mode. The display window at the top showed a message, “Studio One, waiting for host”. Changing modes is as simple as holding down two buttons when you power the unit on, then pressing select for the mode you want. Which I did for Logic and...it was blank. So I went to the net and made sure I was doing it right. Fired up Logic, and it synced right away. Couldn’t have been easier. This is going to make mixing so much easier.
