The annual NAMM show is the get-together of all the musical gear makers and their retailers. Lots of guitars, amps, synths, and software. The show is big – nearly 85,000 registrants

this year

The Retro Thing blog has some coverage of new synths from the show. MatrixSynth also pointed out that at NAMM, hardware synths seem to be making a bit of a comeback.

While the world has definitely gone host-based – you can get some incredible virtual instruments these days – there are still great synths to be had (for a price). Virtual instruments are way cheaper and easier to use.

However eventually your computer *will* run out of power, and then what will you do?

For some good-natured general coverage, check this LA Times article.
