The Spotted Muse: Wireless Foot Pedal Sighting!!
This is fantastic news! I feel like i'm coming to the end of a two-year quest...
Mr. Kelly Demoline, President of Kelly's Music & Computers, has graciously given me permission to post his reply to my email sent to him a couple of weeks ago in reference
to his blog
about the AMuseTek MuseBook Music Software and wireless foot pedal first spotted at this year's NAMM convention.
Turns out, they do indeed carry the wireless foot pedal as part of the MuseBook software package! But here - read about it for yourself!
Thanks for your note, Hugh. I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you - my sales team forwarded your message to me, so instead of it getting answered the same day (which is our policy), it ended up waiting for me to get back in the office from doing training sessions for schools. (more)
AMuseTek is a Korean company, so it is probably best to e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to reach them.
We are carrying the MuseBook SingleNote package, which includes the software, the wireless foot pedal and the USB finger switch. You can get the details and pricing at http ://kellysmusicandcomputers.com/productinfo.asp?id=1682912297 It is $189 US, although the software can be purchased on it's own for $69 US. You will probably want the hardware, though, as it is probably the most useful part of the package! You can also use it to turn pages in Acrobat Reader if you enable the full screen mode.

My next piano will fit in my pocket...
Just saw this posted on jkontherun
- it's a new patent for a foldable keyboard
- check out the site, they have a freaky cyber-dude giving an automated sales pitch (this is a form of programmable 'bot that's used a lot in advertising - actually pretty cool, maybe i should get one for my site...hm...)
To tell you the truth, a fold up keyboard just doesn't get my goosebumps up...it still looks bulky, and it kind of reminds me of a MalletKat
, a kind of modular electronic xylophone (betcha never heard of one of THOSE, eh? Go listen to/see John Adam's "Death of Klinghoffer" opera - there's a whole story with this one that i'll save for a later blog...)...
Now THIS, on the other hand, is something i can get excited about...does anyone remember that Star Trek (Next Generation) episode when Capt. Picard falls in love with some scientist lady? They both sneak up into one of the jeffreys tubes and play a little musical duet - Capt. Picard on a little pipe, and the lady plays a - ta-daaaa- roll up piano! Hilarious...
Well, check out the website for the Roll Up Pianoman
- i can't tell which video is more bizarre, the one for the 'foldup keyboard' or the one with the hysterical family members elated over their new rollup keyboard that gets tossed into a kitchen drawer when they're done...
Now, don't laugh...i may actually get one of these things...
