Subject: RE: [motm] stand for sbk pop-up mixer case

Damn straight, my friend. As soon as I had secured my equipment and powered
back up, MOTM was good to go. I didn't have to switch it to external tempo
mode (TR-909), select the proper sequence (TB-303) or any other nonsense. I
must say, I think some of my success with dropping MOTM cases from 4 feet
and retaining my patches has to do with the fact that Wacky Kovacy uses
Switchcraft plugs and I use his cables. They do grab slightly better for me,
though it may be all in my mind...

Actually, now that I'm flashing back to that horrible experience, I remember
that the reason the first (heavier) case didn't hit the floor immediately is
that the power cord stayed in the socket on the MOTM-900 and arrested its
fall enough that I could still catch it in time. Ouch!

I will be very happy to never go through that again.
