Needs one of these though :

a82fae1f558057cc46adffbde941ee0e-orig

;)

the visual thing can control the entire RGB gammut (i try to vj you see) so i can make a visual all red or all blue or green or whatever colour i want really.. instantly..

plus has saturation, great for layer masks

and two "special effects" - sharpness" and "digitise".. gotta buy a plug for it tommorow - cant wait to give it a test :)

$25

just don't get something that only works with the Air. :|

aaa the ol adapter. i plumped for the slightly less aesthetic solution, now have one of these sitting in front of the telly, looking for a proper place to go:

most awesome thing is streaming movies & tunes direct from the lappie (in the studio) to the telly, works a charm. lovely to bounce a tune down to mp3, stroll out into the lounge and have a listen immediately. now i need some new speakers for it and a better telly.. damnit.. if anything though it's made me rediscover my music collection- finally a new stereo after 10 years ;D

tb303 spares, pots, switches and battery door

Once I replaced the switch board in my 303, it was like a new machine! No more double key presses!

I've just replaced my res and cutoff pots, after having to make do with some pots in an external box for a while. The PCB traces and pads around the res pot can lift very easily.

Are you getting the Devilfish mod done?
