Tape Stats: These Numbers Are Actual

The Garner CDS-2500A Professional Tape Degausser – 110-125v 60hz is designed to erase all formats of media that are up to 6 inches in width. They really did not like interference in their professional work by outsiders. Like all the greatest keyboard instruments, Yamaha’s DX synthesizers were built and programmed for practical use, and they came into their own when it mattered – not when it didn’t. There was no dashboard of knobs, so real-time control was not easily accomplished, and by the time you’d added in the cost of a keyboard you weren’t actually looking at quite such an obvious choice. There are several brands of “kinesiology” tape available, however not all of them follow the principles and medicinal techniques that are part of the science behind Kinesio Hamstring GO Tape and not all of them bring out the true benefits of kinesiology itself. I have to start the part where I create my memoir. In all my life, it never occurred to me that I would have to start this part of my life.

This wasn’t a measure of sales – only opinion, but in order for the Cheetah to compete against the market’s big guns for votes, it must have sold pretty well. I can’t find any sales charts for the MIDI master keyboards, but Cheetah’s continued and intensive commitment to them suggests they were a huge earner for the company. Controllers were really the core of the business, and were the first hardware product the company had released. Whilst the company was based in Wales, UK, the MK-prefixed master keyboards were made in Italy. Even in the UK, Cheetah didn’t look like overpowering any of the industry’s dominant forces as a brand. It’s a brand most musicians have never heard of, but in late ‘80s Britain it did have a presence in the market, albeit a rather unassuming one. Moving on, the ad also features two synthesizers – one analogue and one digital, and both offered only in keyboardless expander form. Maxell LTO3 Tape, use its best technology for LTO3 cartridge with some most reliable and modern features like highly accurate Servo track structure which hold the track even in to make sure perfect head tracking. The price was £249.95, but you have to bear in mind that this was still the 1980s, when sequencers cost money, and the value of the MQ8 was increased markedly by its special features.

At just £199.95, this really was dirt cheap for any multitimbral module released in 1989. But again, unfortunately, the dashboard-devoid format limited what could have been a remarkable product to what realistically was going to be no more than a preset bank to most users. It’s not featured in the ad, but the baseliner of the range was the MK5 – aimed squarely at beginners (or desktop micro users with musical dabbling tendencies), and costing just £99. Cheetah went to market with the motto “Power Without The Price”, and the centrepiece of their range was a variety of MIDI controller keyboards. Of course, because of my nature, and old habits, I called a car and went to the activists meeting. We all were already used to how this very old yet good demagogue, with a loud confident voice, narrated how good things were in our ministry for an hour . But as with all earlier MIDI sequencers, the whole shooting match was governed by the overall MIDI event capacity, which in this case maxed out at 20,000. My old Kawai Q55 will take 70,000 notes, and that would always run out long before I’d fully orchestrated a gig’s worth of songs, so the Cheetah MQ8’s much smaller capacity would have got me nowhere.

You could, however, program in real time, and the multiple Out sockets would have been a real luxury on a beatbox costing two hundred quid in the late ’80s, let alone one costing a hundred and fifty. Programming was deemed prohibitively difficult, and the MS800 in any case used a maverick method of sound creation which probably wouldn’t have been recognised by the kind of customers at whom the unit was aimed. And it could be played multitimbrally with the possibilty of assigning different sounds to the full six voices – each monophonic in that case of course. They weren’t full of sounds that raised exclamations of “OMG! This was a real growth area through the late 1980s as prices of modules dropped and keyboardists began to demand better quality ‘piano-feel’ hardware to exploit the dynamic subtleties of the increasingly realistic sounds of the time. In the realm of 1980s drum machines, £149.95 was another market-bustingly low price.
