Re: Alesis AirFX (what's it do?)

A little. I played with it at MF when the prototype came in. It's not as 
expressive as a theramin but it does have some interesting sounds (a la 
of the weirder FX in Radiohead's "Kid A" etc). The musician's friend 
has some sound samples up that don't quite do it justice. I think it'd be 
pretty fun for the occassional dash of sonic mayhem but it's a little 
to control than one might expect (IMOHO). With the Chapter 11 situation at 
Alesis one wonders if any more of them will ever see the light of day.
