Going down the Rabbit Hole..

Here is something interesting:  I am getting ready to update all of my music software and leaving behind products too!

I have to say my favorite music software is Reason by Propellerhead.  In all of the years I have been using this product, they have been the most helpful by far when I have had reason8-500x500_1.png.360x360_q95problems, glitches.  Their whole way of doing business should be a model for all of the other companies out there.


Why do I say this?  I say it because I purchased Omnisphere by Spectrasonics, and their support really pales in comparison.  Maybe as a new user I paled by comparison.. but I will tell you every time I contacted them, I never received proper help/support I needed. Which made me sad because I ended up trashing a $500 product because of this.  I could never get it to work.  It should not be that hard to help a new user.  Leaving that program behind won't be a problem for me.   Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

I will be purchasing Ivory Italian Grands II to add to my list of music soivory2-italgrand-rftware. I am very excited about this! I need lots of versatility when I am working and this will give me that. Besides.. it sounds so hot/amazing... makes me feel like I am actually playing a beautiful Fazioli.

I will be going down the Rabbit Hole for my next item I am purchasing: podcasting hardware. I want to create podcast showcasing music that I love, my music, friends music, and those that promote it via internet, organic radio and talk about the latest tech in music. It's called the Peace in Music program. Interviews too.. what fun will that be?!!!

I hope you watch this space and my YouTube channel because I will be posting everything video and audio there.

TTFN!  ( Ta Ta For Now )


Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
