NAMM 2015 – New year, new gear!

NAMM 2015 – New year, new gear!

NAMM 2015 kicks off in Anaheim shortly – once again – the convention centre will be alive with the sound of the latest gear.

Indeed, the very mention of the term ‘NAMM’ is sufficient to kickstart a Pavlovian response in the office of Red Dog Towers. We needed to canoe out of there last week.

It made quite a Messe.

But enough of the tradeshow jokes, on with the gear. We’ve already had a few announcements and teasers, and we’ll no doubt have a couple more before the show really gets underway.

This is the time of year where the industry bloggers live put away the coffee pot-after-pot trying to keep up with the latest product news. So let us begin, and bookmark this page to stay informed with the latest updates!

We already know that Korg have an ARP Odyssey clone on the way, which is sure to be a big hit. As big a hit as the MS-20 mini? We’ll see…
