It seems that Dmitry is not going to be working on this emulator any time soon according to this thread.

Good feedback on TrakAx Mobile

The TrakAx blog has a bunch of comments from various sites (including Palm Sounds of course) on just how good the application is, and at a price of $19.99 you really can’t go wrong in my opinion.

If you haven’t taken a look as yet then you really should.

Is hand held music greener than other electronic music making?

That’s my question for today?

I was reading something at work today about turning off lights and appliances that you’re not using and it struck me that maybe not only is mobile music making very handy in terms of being able to work on your stuff wherever you are, but also ‘greener’ than other forms of electronic music making.

I don’t know if I’m right or not, I guess you’d have to work out the amount of power required to charge a laptop battery against a PDA battery and how much music production time you’d get from each, but it is one of those things that just feels like it should be right. It kind of makes intuitive sense that these devices use less power.

I could be wrong, but until someone tells me otherwise I might just feel good about it for a while.

Sad day …

It is a very sad day indeed. My SG20 MIDI tone module is no more. I was putting the batteries in and got a sudden smell of burning. When I tried to see if it still worked, nothing. Not a thing at all. Big shame.

So I thought I’d open it up to see if there was anything obvious wrong with it, but nothing jumps out at me. Any suggestions as to what to do with it would be gratefully received.
