  1. A dozen chips, ten prototyping boards and a bunch of other components. Gonna build myself a four tone just intonation harmoniser for my theremin if everything goes to plan. Oh, yes!

  2. Merry Christmas! The only vaguely music related thing I got was some Billy Joel songs for the videogame Rock Band, which I promptly played the heck out of on my bitchin' keytar. Hey, don't judge me, it's Christmas!

    Thanks for the great blog!

  8. The Ohm+ "Early gurus of electronic music" CD box set, but I also picked up a second-hand Yamaha PSS-140 keyboard, prime for hacking, yesterday for £8…

  9. got a cute Marshall MS-2R Mini Amp – can clip it on my belt, plug in everything from iphone, monotron or e-guitar and have fun in the park (and annoy everyone around me :D)

    and I gifted myself a Virus TI2..

  10. One of the best presents I've had this year is making connections with people and learning about new things through Synthtopia. I'm very thankful for that opportunity.

  16. Merry Christmas and happy hollydays to all you guys as well!

    Its one year ago since I discovered Synthtopia; that happened when I started looking more into synthesizers and such before diving into this wonderful hobby. And quite frankly I still enjoy Synthtopia just as much as I did when I first started frequenting it.

    As for gifts; we don't celebrate Christmas with gifts (we did sort of celebrate 'Saint Nicolas') but I managed to get hold of a Maschine controller. Unfortunately it turned out to to have some broken components so well… Gonna get myself an USB microphone and a Ryan mediaplayer instead 🙂

  22. Happy Christmas Synthtopia! This year I got myself a Novation Bass Station (rack) and landed a bliptronic 5000 for playing with as well… but the one I had my fingers crossed for was my atari paddle synth!! not expensive, but made by hand and with major selling out tendancies…
    Thanks to Mom, and my brother's internet scouring prowess, I landed one of those too!!

    only downside to all this really great greatness – I'm gonna need a bigger mixer!
    still, not a bad problem to have!
    Happy Christmas to everyone! Happy Boxing Day! and Kwanza now it has begun!

  28. An iPad (woohoo!) and some patches for UltraAnalog VST. But I gave a Bb Pocket Trumpet and a Soprano Sax to my kids (even more satisfying).

  30. That OHM compilation is interesting but I thought it was a bit like homework – stuff that you should know about but not necessarily want to listen to a lot.

    What did you think of it?

  31. Merry Synthmas!

    Sounds like a lot of you were on the "good" list, this year.

    I didn't get any new gear this year, but ended up with several iTunes gift cards, which are going towards some new music apps. Looking forward to doing more with my Line 6 MIDI adapter.

    Any suggestions for cool music apps?
