Well I have quite a few pieces of gear the list is long. My main mixer is an Alesis32(16 Track) with a Fostex D-160 hard disk recorder but I now do a lot of Mixing etc in Cubase which can handle 150 tracks of audio, and I use Sibelius for scoring the music. I use a PC(hate the term) which is made by a company here in Canada called MusicXPC, as well as various rack mounted equipment.  Cool

My grandfather was one of those types that never took music lessons and couldn't read music but could pick up an instument fool around with it a bit to understand it then be able to play it.  He could also hear a song and play it.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

Yeah, from what I've read, Mozart was the ultimate child prodigy.  Doing organ concerts at an age where he could barely reach the pedals...  Shocked

Rachmaninov did a similar thing also, he would go and hear tchaikovsky conduct an original piece, go back with the comductor and play the enite piece on piano. Perfectly.
It's very interesting to see what form genius takes...

every now and then - usually after playing for a long while - I get into a state where the music seems to go from the sheet through my body and out of my instrument while bypassing my brain entirely.

I think this is sort of a musical nirvana...

I play bass (fretted, fretless and electric upright) plus guitar, have home studio too.

Some of my most recent musings can be heard here with Burgess Penguin, I'm on bass with these guys:

Robert Fripp says, "When I'm going well, I do not play music.  Rather, music plays through me."
