YouTube via hamsterdunce
"More music on

Here's a tremendously epic speed solo & prog rock synth nightmare for you to feast your brainholes on, kiddies! The entire song employs a supersaw zaptron patch of my own creation on the amazing white Roland JD-800, with squelchy vintage '90s backing track crapola on the Korg 01W. No, no direct line input. First of all, I wanted you to hear the slamming finger slams. And secondly, SLAMMY SLAM SLAM"

The custom white Roland JD-800 is from

"This one has 10 pitch controls to control the 10 different voices. Each one can be bypassed to give stock pitch. Decay has been added for both hats, ride and crash. There are 3 5 way rotary switches for glitchy distorted wobbliness. By exfade"

Yamaha CEO Pleased With Current Production Of Jet Skis, Alto Saxophones, Snowmobiles, Power Generators, Scooters, Golf Carts

via The Onion:

"HAMAMATSU, JAPAN—Despite concerns over the recent global recession, Yamaha Corporation president Mitsuru Umemura announced last week that he was content with the current level of production of Jet Skis, alto saxophones, snowmobiles, power generators, scooters, and golf carts. "Initially we thought that the declining global market would result in overproduction of synthesizers, PA systems, DVD players, tone generators, and motocross bikes, but in fact our production quotas were almost perfectly attuned to the market in power amplifiers, heart-rate monitors, signal processors, analog mixers, engine oil, microphones, HiFi systems, and grand pianos," said Umemura, who stressed that his company prides itself on attention to detail. "At the Yamaha Corporation we're focused on one thing and one thing alone—quality sound chips, ceiling brackets, editing software, race-kart engines, sport boats, flugelhorns, ATVs, sequencers, outboard motors, conference systems, golf clubs, projectors, MIDI controllers, lamp cartridges, portable recorders, subwoofers, component systems, and motorcycles." The Yamaha Corporation is based in Hamamatsu, Japan."
