So having a bit of an issue with my keyboard player. He's a great guy and a great player but he's one of those people that just doesn't play well with technology. Takes way too long to get his sounds ready because he doesn't know how to save his patches for a quick recall. He just futzes around with the settings until he gets the sounds and it's a real buzzkill between songs. He also just got a new mini mixer to replace the old school keyboard amp he's used for years and just randomly plugs stuff in and pokes at the controls until something makes a sound. We won't even get into his new smartphone. Now he's no amateur he's in his 50's and was formerly in a national act. But it's getting to be a pain that he can't/won't figure out his gear to optimize the band's time. He's a bit touchy about criticism as well so we're not really sure how to approach it. So is "man I just don't get technology" a legit excuse? Not asking you to fly the Space Shuttle but it's not that difficult in the digital age to download a manual and figure out how to push a few buttons. No one has to tell me to have my gear at a pro level. I make sure my tuning and intonation is always on, fresh strings, amp and effects sound good and it's all worked out on my own time.
