Note: This was for sale, but it's actually quite fun, so I'm keeping it for now. I'm willing to consider trades though for synthy gear. ;-)
Here's my minidisc recorder, one of the strangest things I've ever seen. Sony was trying to market to DJs by offering a turntable-style wheel for scrubbing, independent pitch and speed sliders (weird!), and these useful hot-start buttons. I've used it with the hot start buttons as a sample triggering device at a live show. It's alot of fun to play with anyway.
The one complaint is that you can sometimes get some weird flanging effects if you play with the pitch/speed sliders. It's a firmware bug Sony did not fix. Still, if you want to mix MP3s in with your DJ set, it's a pretty awesome toy.
I bought it from a Guitar Center in Chicago. They claimed it was a store model they found in the back. I got no manual with it, but was able to download it off the net. It's on this page too.
I'd love a trade for an alpha juno, kawai k3m, roland r-8, something cool that makes noise and not record noise. I was offering it for sale, but I think I'll just keep it or wait and use it for a trade.
