You could call the yearly Musikmesse trade show the "NAMM of Europe," but it's about five times the size of NAMM, in a convention center consisting of Jetsons-like buildings interconnected by moving walkways--a city within the city of Frankfurt, Germany.
While I was holding down the fort at the Music Player home offices, my brother in gear geekdom Craig Anderton attended the show and compiled this video of keyboard highlights. Craig is both executive editor of the new Electronic Musician magazine and editor in chief of Harmony Central, not to mention a guy who was building his own synths back when many of us still believed in the tooth fairy, and he had plenty to do while he was there. So, we thank him for somehow carving out the time to shoot, edit, render, and contribute this video. You rock, brother. —Stephen Fortner
