That. is. a stunning case! Nice 606, too. :cloud:
Fast beat the feet, fast fall the hands!

Current gear: About 9U of eurocrack modulz, Waldorf Streichfett, Roland VR-09 (haz nice Hammondz on it), Cubase 5, Yamaha MX16 USB-MIDI interface + Washburn T12B Bass guitar, Eko S-300 Strat copy (the guitars are mostly for demos, sampling or playing shitty punk).

yeah, i grew up listening to them, my dad's a huge fan. i like "can't buy a thrill" the most, never heard such tight/feel/funk as on "do it again". how did they do that? "aja" and "gaucho" are great too, but i hate the way they've become the audiophile's choice in best sound.

A much misunderstood band who always retained the feel of an incredibly tight band playing however far they went towards songwriting and production perfection. My friend calls them the Jewish Beatles (meant in veneration) :hihi:

oh, nice case Ross too :mrgreen:

I listen to all my music on my mp3 player in the car, so sound quality isn't that important to me. Steely Dan is probably the one band I've been listening to since my early teens which never goes off my playlist. They got me into jazz -- a lifelong passion.

My favorite album is probably Katy Lied (even though it sounds the worst of the bunch, much to the disappointment of Steely Dan themselves). Aja, Doctor Wu, Daddy Don't Live in NYC, and Your Gold Teeth II are probably my favorite songs of all time.

If you haven't heard it, you might want to check out Walter Becker's 11 Tracks of Whack. Much of the music has the feel of a demo, but there are a few awesome songs on there -- Junkie Girl, Surf and/or Die, and Girlfriend definitely stand out for me. Junkie Girl is another one of my all time favorite songs.

oh yes, this case looks amazing. I keep looking over to the right.
What is that thing ontop of the KRK speaker. It's a mystery.

It's a Sony D50 portable field recorder.
