    Hey, just wanted to remind all you good producer folks to clean your equipment.

    Just happened to run my finger on that little shelf underneath the keys on my midi controller and it was nasty as fuck. Never realized as dirty it got under there...

    Agreed - that cat fur gets everywhere - clogs up yer fans - pc over heats.
    Moved my pc onto desk - much better.

    Heres a tip - turn your keyboard (qwerty not midi) upside down and tap the bottom - tons of crud will come out.
    Also if your keyboard is like mine you might be able to roll a bifter with what falls out.
    :D
