Got this yesterday but it still counts:

Novation Mininova Analog Modeling Synthesizer

It owns so far and I've had a lot of fun playing with it. I still haven't even heard half the drat presets because I've been tinkering around with the first half. And the vocoder is a real treat because I've never had one before.

Does it have an output to use a separate keyboard? I hate the mini keys which is a shame because a lot of these synths have some cool abilities. I had a Microkorg but got rid of it because I couldn't handle the menu diving.

I mean good for you for getting it cheap but I cant believe there's a market for this. Do people really prefer it to, say, a sandisk sansa and $150 of music?

I bought a Fiio portable headphone amp for my laptop to use as a USB soundcard, and for my portable music keyboard since the outputs had a fair bit of noise. It did a great job at cleaning them both up, and then I tried using it with my Lumia 920 and some Amon Tobin. I don't consider myself an audiophile, but the difference was pretty huge. Noticeable (for me) to the point where I'm considering picking up a dedicated MP3 player with a good DAC. I can't really rationalize the cost since I'm saving up for another big purchase, but I'm always looking at what companies are putting out until someone includes all the features I want in a package I want, since it's the kind of thing I'm only going to buy once.

There hasn't been all that much menu diving so far. Of course, like I said, I'm still learning all the different stuff it does.

You probably could use it as a separate keyboard. What would you need for it to do that? It has a USB port and I was able to set it up as a MIDI controller in Ableton yesterday, although I'm not sure if that's what you're referring to or not.

Call me crazy but that looks like a normal-rear end house to me! I see a lot of garages that stick out past the front door.

Due to the angle of the picture the depth is pretty hard to judge, but that walkway is definitely not the entire length of a garage. It looks to be 8-10 feet at most, there's only like 3 steps with a very small platform. Most of the garage is probably tucked into the house and only the front portion sticks out. If you pulled up and parked right in front of the left garage door it would only be like 10 steps to the front door.

It has MIDI In, so yes. Any keyboard with MIDI Out could be used. I'm with you on mini keys.

This whole exchange is really strange. I've seen plenty of houses and townhouses with a front door even further back than the garage. There's a little path that leads to the door and the garage kinda juts out.

Any house on a narrow lot is shaped like that just because they want to maximize space between houses. Beyond that, I don't see why it would be an issue since most people enter their own house through the garage that they park their car in.

I had these for DJing and audio production, then my roommate pissed on them in his sleep. I had him buy me the same pair again. They're amazing sound-wise, but also they're the most comfortable headphones I've ever tried on.

Also if the garage simply wasn't there, you'd still have to walk around the two cars parked in the same place the garage exists anyway.

I grew up in Tahoe and my mom loves it there so I think this is the perfect gift for her. (I bought one for myself too)

Nice! That is fancy! If you're doing food tourism, get po-boys from both Mother's (Downtown) and Parkway Bakery (Mid-City). Booty's (Marigny) always has different specials from all different types of cusines and they're pretty much all delicious. Get some Vietnamese food, too. There's a lot to choose from but my personal favorite is Magasin on Magazine Street (Garden District). I also love and frequent Dat Dog (2 locations in the Garden District and 1 in Marigny), a hot dog joint that has lots of different types of dogs from regular franks to local hot sausage and alligator sausage to international stuff like Polish kielbasa. You can even get crawfish etouffee (a local staple) as a topping on your dog there! And speaking of joints, The Joint in Bywater has some of the best BBQ I have ever had in my life, and I've had BBQ in several different states known for their BBQ. And if you're looking for a good burger, try Company Burger (Garden District) or Atomic Burger (Metairie). Atomic Burger is pretty new (just opened in November) and seems like it could and should be a nationwide burger chain because of its setup and how good it is, but this is the only location so far. They have these liquid nitrogen shakes there that are some of the best shakes I've ever had anywhere. For pizza, Reginellis (locations in the Garden District, Uptown, Downtown, Lakeview, etc.), Pizza Delicious (Bywater), Mardi Gras World (Bywater) and Brooklyn Pizzeria (Metairie) are some of my favorites.

Basically for any kind of food you want, there's at least one standout restaurant in the area that has it haha

Here in Texas nobody builds basements for two reasons. One you only have to go down past the freeze line and unlike in the north where that is couple feet down, we only have to go down like 6in so they are not as cost effective as a slab and building above ground. Second the ground moves like no other down here so a basement is just a bad idea. Foundation repair is almost guaranteed to be needed and a basement would mean cracked walls/much worse structure problems.

Also garage in the back is the way to go if you have a bunch of tools/expensive stuff. No need to advertise to anyone driving by while you're working out there.
