Elektron turns Digitone into a polysynth keyboard

Elektron have taken one of their more inspiring recent products and added a keyboard. The result – an 8-voice polyphonic keyboard for 1320EUR, and a bunch of new playing features. So yes, Elektron continues the move away from the company that makes powerful but mysterious boxes to something more hands-on. We’re going from menu diving to actually playing. And indeed, it’s now the age of the polysynth. 8 voices for just over a grand ain’t so bad. The Digitone was already sonically one of th...

PSU study finds that money, revenge, morals motivate whistleblowers to expose tax fraud

A study by Portland State University School of Business accounting professor Cass Hausserman finds that people who expose others of tax fraud often do so as revenge that's disguised as their moral obligation. Blowing the whistle is also motivated by a financial gain for the whistleblower. Revenge is commonly considered a primary reason why whistleblowers report tax fraud -- so much so, that it's often referred to as 'the revenge tax.'

Penn State Hits a Speed Bump with Plans to Protect HAPPY VALLEY Trademark

If you have heard of Penn State, you have probably heard the phrase “Happy Valley.” The school, the students, and the media regularly use “Happy Valley” in reference to the school and the surrounding community. The school considers the association so strong that Penn State recently applied to register HAPPY VALLEY as a trademark for clothing – and received a refusal to register. The Trademark Office examining attorney assigned to the application refused registration on the ground the phrase “Hap...

Do Pros Use Pro Gear?

Tim Bradshaw commented: "You are right about the 'professional' thing: everyone wants to be a professional, or perhaps to be able to pretend that they once were a professional. This is why you can buy 'road-worn' guitars and why brassed Leicas are so desirable. "I'm a non-professional (non-gigging) guitarist and I occasionally find myself hunting for flight cases for my amps and pedalboards (a pedalboard is a thing to which you can attach a set of FX pedals and a PSU for them and it means you ca...
