Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon

I’ve never really wanted anything on the Android platform. I also never really cared for a smaller iPad. As a musician I want more touch screen space. Windows 8 is bringing the world just that. In fact, the new Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon is so large it comes with wheels. Wheels! A few years down the road imagine a main touch sequencer with multiple music touch apps all on the same screen. I hope SKB makse a nice case so I can use mine live. I really hope Apple combines iOS and OS-X and makes everything they do touch. If not this could be a little “in” for the Windows eco-system.

“How badly have you wanted to turn your iPad or, better yet, touchscreen all-in-one PC into a table? OK, so maybe you haven’t thought of it. But don’t worry, Lenovo has. At CES 2013 the company unveiled its IdeaCentre Horizon, a 27-inch desktop all-in-one that transforms into a table. The all-in-one can actually be purchased with a separate table stand with wheels.” – abcnews

Keywriter is a German typewriter VST for PC.

It’s rare I do a post about a PC only plug-in because I own a Mac. I do however own VMWare Fusion and XP to run Excel and Songsmith. This morning I installed a demo version of Ableton Live inside Fusion solely to check out Keywriter. I know it’s a novelty plug-in but I couldn’t resist. Basically its a VST simulating an old German typewriter called “Erika”. It’s a freebie and you can find audio samples, screenshots and the download: here
