just bought a ''new'' seaboard block from guitar center...well, turns out it isnt new...they handed me an open box and the device had finger prints on it...i told them that this was unacecptable so they gave me another off the shelve, well, they where all open...go figure , so i decided to take my chance and took it home.
The seaboard block is great with the noise app. Bluetooth works great and the battery lasts longer then your iPads. You can connect via usb as well. I got the kit and the block gives you another 25 keys. Then you might also like a phone with touch force to play the third voice. To bad that the swam instruments in noise are not available in the AU version.Also got the microfreak and have to say that its synth engine gives me even more joy then the individual pitchbend of mpe.
The company already has its line of considerably more affordable Block controllers, but it is now introducing what is easily the most accessible Seaboard ever, and quite possibly the most affordable MPE controller on the block.
While the Rise has extra sliders and an X/Y pad for limiting or expanding the range of motion on the fly, you can expand your Seaboard block with a Lightpad block to perform those functions, if you absolutely require them.
Petitioner was employed by respondent in an area adjacent to Durham, North Carolina, and was injured while working on a train crew that was pushing three railroad cars loaded with sand onto an above-grade trestle or chute. Petitioner had been riding on the lead end of the lead car. When the train did not stop at the proposed point, petitioner jumped off just as the lead car struck the butt block on the end of the chute and went past the end of the rails. In this manner petitioner sustained his injuries.
It was petitioner's job to \"spot\" or place the cars on the chute, and, in performing his duties, he was to give signals to the engineer for spotting the cars in their proper places. At trial petitioner claimed he gave proper signals at the proper times and that the train's failure to stop properly was due to defective brakes. Respondent contended that the lead car struck the butt block and went past the end of the rails because of petitioner's failure to give the necessary and proper signals to the engineer; the contention was that petitioner waited until too late to give a \"slow\" signal and then gave a simultaneous \"emergency stop\" signal when the lead car was too close to the end of the chute to be stopped under any conditions.
Twelve days after Hurricane Sandy smacked the eastern seaboard and beyond, tens of thousands of people still lack basic necessities - food, water, even shelter. NPR's Richard Gonzales sent us this postcard about three men from Chicago who took it upon themselves to bring some comfort to Sandy's victims.
GONZALES: Donna Barnett and her brother Bobby have lived on this block on Howard Beach near the water since the 1960s. Bobby rode out the storm. Now, he points to a dead-end sign on his block to show where the water had crested. 59ce067264
