Well here it is. The first Atomic Shadow blog entry. Never thought I would do a blog because I do not believe that I am fascinating. If you expect people to read your drivel you should be required to be fascinating. Since there is no such requirement i will just go ahead anyway.
But I am going to post from time to time and I hope you drop by once in awhile and see what's new. I promise I am not going to write about what I had for lunch or things like that. Hopefully I will stay away from political rants and stick with Music, production, sound design and gear. And on the gear front I received a package from Brazil today.
I have the first EMW-200 off of the assembly line. Paulo at Electronic Music Works was kind enough to let me pre-order the first unit for evaluation. If you have ever wondered what an Electro Comp 200 sounds like this is probably going to be your big chance. Especially when you consider that EML only made about 150-200 of them. Down at the EMW lab he has a nice vintage 200 so care was taken to get the sound and features as close as possible. I will have a more detailed review soon as well as a video on EweTube.
So welcome to the lab. Feel free to look around but don't touch anything.
