DAVE SMITH TETRA - INTRODUCTION
Dave Smith who co-developed the DSI-120 integrated circuit that was used in the famous Prophet 08 in 2007 and the Mopho in 2008, amongst other achievements is also credited with the design of the award-winning small but powerful Tetra. The Tetra which has four DSI-120 circuits, provides us with an analog four-note polyphonic, four-part multitimbral programmable synth at a very affordable price.
Don't let the posting name fool you! My knowledge of drums is 'alright' at best! This review was kindly written by Austin Lane, Absolute Music's new drum manager!
2BOX DRUMIT 5 MK2 ELECTRONIC DRUM KIT
Having been playing drums for more years than I care to mention, and having just taken over the drum managers position at Absolute Music (after 19 years at one of the UKs leading Drum Stores), I came into contact with the 2Box Drumit Five kit for the first time, and straight away they even gave me a pair of sticks and asked me to put it through it's paces!!!!! Challenge accepted!
Christmas has been and gone, so I'm sure you've enjoyed being subjected to the usual carol singers, cheesey songs on the radio, songs of praise on the TV, heavy wall shaking dubstep, and your little brothers jingle bells CD.
Wait...rewind a second, what was that? Heavy wall shaking dubstep???
At least, this is what you'll have experienced if Santa brought you that pair of legendary KRK speakers that you've been craving for so long!

KORG WAVEDRUM - INTRODUCTION
As a drummer, not a percussionist, I have often wanted to purchase a set of bongos or congas to play by hand. Today I am more of an electronic drummer than I am acoustic, so the thought of playing an electronic drum full of hand percussion sounds plus a whole load more, with a real drum head seems to be just the thing for me.
The Focal SM9 3-Way active studio monitor is one of the strangest looking speakers I’ve ever seen! Unfortunately, they aren’t expected to be released until around March 2011, so I won’t be able to get my hands on them to take a listen just yet! Until then though, it is certainly worth doing a little digging around to discover what we should be expecting from these odd looking boxes!
SE Electronics state that the cheekily named sEX1 was produced with one thing in mind...(no, not that!)...not to just outperform every other mic on the market in its price category, but to blow them out the water! It was time to take a closer look at this magical microphone for myself...
