I just finished talking with Akalu Somal of http://www.styleandfunctiondesign.com and I ordered this desk with a few changes. There will be a slider for the Keyboard, neon lights, 5 Speaker Stands, A Bay for the G5 and Hard Drives. One shelf in the middle for monitors and gear. Ah this will be sweet it will also have some two tone wood colors.
What a wonderful suprise today. I went to go pick up my mail and there
was Reason 4.0 Upgrade for free. It goes for 130.00 In most stores.
Thanks Line 6 & Propellerhead. I am told that the reason for the upgrade is that Reason has a grace period for upgrading and I had purchased Reason 3.0 in the summer. Wow I wish all companys would do somthing like this. Hum Like Apple.

As reported by DigiTimes, ” ‘the iPhone has become AT&T’s top selling device, commanding some 13% of AT&T’s overall handset sales, and the fourth top selling handset in the US market,’ according to Barry Gilbert, VP of the Strategy Analytics BuyerTRAX programs.” What’s more, DigiTimes also quotes Gilbert as indicating that “ ‘ the sales trajectory we are observing with the iPhone could make it the top selling device in the US over the next 1-2 quarters.’ “
Quarterly Mac Sales Set New Record

Right Brain v Left Brain
From: Herald Sun
October 09, 2007
THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test … do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.
Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

I think it would be a great pice of Gear at Palm Recroding Studio
Omnirax Coda D8 with optional left sidecar (SCL) and right sidecar (SCR) with optional solid Mahogany Cheeks (CHKSCR and CHKSCL). The CODA D8 workstation with 2 D8SC-Sidecars provides a spacious and innovative ergonomic platform for your mixer and numerous associated peripherals. You can choose to attach either or both side carts. This desk will provide you with an astounding total of 52 rack spaces. The main center desk has 18 spaces in 2 sets of 9 side by side. Each side cart has 5 spaces on top and 12 below. I had so much gear at one point and I still never ran out of space. Aside from holding your mixer in the center each side cart has a surface area which can hold a small MIDI controller, an Akai MPC or your favorite drum machine. The desk curves around you so you can access all the surfaces and racks with ease. You really feel like you are in control of a space ship when all the lights go on. Who knows perhaps I won a war against an alien worm race and didn’t know it.
The solid Mahogany side panels were an expensive option that give this desk a look that makes it worthy of a classic candle lit living room. It really is beautiful! I have received so many compliments about the appearance of my studio based on this piece of furniture. It’s ‘wow’ factor is beyond compare.
The monitor bridge holds both a computer monitor (or 2) and your studio monitors at an ideal height (38.5″). Sound and sight lines optimized for comfortable extended sessions. The side carts extend the bridge even further for much more gear.
The entire desk is mobile via heavy duty casters which makes it easy to move to get behind or run cables underneath.
I spent so much money on this desk with all the options that went along with it (it’s worth over $2000). But, I can no longer keep it! My studio downsizing just gave birth to a great opportunity for you to purchase an amazing piece of studio furniture. The condition of the unit is great. There are a few scratches from racking and sliding gear. The screws on the casters and a few elsewhere might need reinforcements (such as filler) when reassembling the unit.
I would like to do this locally but I kept the auction national so everyone can have the opportunity. If you pick the item up there will be no shipping or packing fees. If you bid on this item and want it shipped be aware that it will take longer than usual to ready the package and I will be charging a $50 personal packing fee in addition to all the packing/ shipping materials and shipping costs. I can not give shipping quotes or estimates for this product; please check it your self. Be sure to factor in boxes and shipping materials. Thank you for looking and Good luck!

Practice : Space
We practice to create space. This is true for playing a musical instrument, but applies to everything else as well, I think. Practicing creates familiarity. Familiarity creates intimacy.
When we practice playing a piece of music or a scale, we train our brain by using our body. We scrub those neural pathways by moving our fingers. And that creates space. If moving from this note to that note has been trained and ingrained, we no longer have to think about that move and are free to consider other or additional moves. If moving from point A to point B has become utterly natural, then I have established space between those two points in which I can make additional moves. Or, imagine jumping from a rock to another rock. Once that jump has become easy, we might add a turn, a twist or a salto. In music, we might add a new note, a trill, a tremolo, a vibrato… We have created space (or time) in which to make additional moves – or choose not to! The more natural that jump or that piece of music becomes, the more space we have created. Then we have more time and more choice.
I find it important that the space we have thus created should not necessarily be filled with additional notes as we can use that space to embue the sound with more intent or emotion instead. When we no longer have to work at getting to the next note or musical sound, we can enjoy playing the current note with complete conviction.
Palm Recording Studio will be upgrading to the new Mac OS next week. It should be in Friday and we will then spend Saturday afternoon doing the upgrades on the Mac’s Awh, to all my PC frinds tis the season and time to switch to Mac.

The Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI) features dual 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970fx (G5) processors each with an optimized AltiVec “Velocity Engine” vector processing unit and 512k level 2 on-chip cache. It ships configured with 2048MB (2.0GB) of 400 MHz PC3200 DDR SDRAM, a 160.0 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, a 16X DVD+R DL/DVDRW/CD-RW “SuperDrive”, and a 128MB ATI Radeon Vido Card
Apple Power Macintosh G5 2.0 DP (PCI-X 2) Specs (M9455LL/A)
Power Macintosh G5 Main | Ports | Support Links | Q&A | Forums
The Apple Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI-X 2) was introduced to replace the Power Macintosh G5/2.0 (PCI-X) (M9032LL/A) and is only different in four ways — it uses a lower-power PowerPC 970fx (G5) processor, a lower-end graphics card, a faster 8X “SuperDrive” and was introduced for US$500 less.
The Apple Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI-X 2), along with the Power Macintosh G5/1.8 DP (PCI) and Power Macintosh G5 2.5 DP (PCI-X), is a member of the first Mac series to use the 90 nm 64-bit PowerPC 970fx (G5) processor, which uses less power and generates less heat than previous chips.
The Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI-X 2) features dual 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970fx (G5) processors each with an optimized AltiVec “Velocity Engine” vector processing unit and 512k level 2 on-chip cache.
It shipped configured with 512 MB of 400 MHz PC3200 DDR SDRAM, a 160.0 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, an 8X DVD-R/CD-RW “SuperDrive”, and a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra (AGP 8X Pro) video card with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM. Connectivity includes USB 2.0, FireWire “400″ and “800″, ADC, DVI, optical digital audio in/out, and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1. Additionally, this model and the high-end Power Macintosh G5 2.5 DP (PCI-X) include PCI-X slots.
Like the earlier models, the Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI-X 2) uses the same “anodized aluminum alloy” case divided into four different thermal zones with nine computer-controlled fans for optimum cooling, and features a removable side panel for easy access to internal components. Custom configurations also were available.
