September Staff Picks 2021

IMC Staff Shares Their Picks for September

September is here and so are some new favorites that our staff of students, teachers, parents, and musicians just can't get enough of!

Akai Keyboard Controller

"Have you ever wanted to start making beats or record your own music? A good midi controller is essential for both of those! This compact controller has 25 semi-weighted keys that feel great. 8 RGB lit pads with 4 banks make for a total of 32 assignable pads. Pitch bend, modulation, and octave shift controls let you get creative with things. Plus, it comes with a lite version of a few different softwares to get you up and running! This is a great piece of equipment for any beginner, or the most experienced of recording musicians."

- Dakota Cavanaugh


Spinnerette Turntable

"This turntable is so rad. It’s small, portable, has a speaker built into it, and has USB connectivity. I personally love having a record player that has a speaker built in because it means I can take it anywhere in my house and jam out. The USB connectivity is great for old unique records I want to listen to when I’m not around my record player, and can’t find them tonline." - Lucille Petty


x Union Tube and Transistor Bumble Buzz

“This little critter is the 'All or Nothing' effect you didn’t know you needed. Originally designed, and used by Jack White on both guitar AND vocals, this box is divine. Play something, turn it on, and back up, as fuzzy Velcro dust devils swirl around you. Superbly simple design - on or off. See what havoc you can wreak on your neighbors! This limited run pedal is made in conjunction with Third Man Records."
