Topic: Hello, Tobbe from Sweden here!
My name is Tobias and I'm a music addict...
I'm born and raised somewhere slightly south of the middle of Sweden. About 34 yrs old, been playing the piano for the last 20 years. From the start, classical trained, but then the rock n roll demon got a hold of me - and ever since my brother first let me play his electronic keyboards I was hooked, or addicted, if you will!
I attended music schools for five yrs in my late teens/early twenties - mostly playing European folk music, blues and 70's soul - and for the final two yrs mostly jazz and fusion.
Then something else got a hold of me... and I decided to become an electronics engineer instead...
So here I am about ten yrs later. During daylight I work as a research engineer at a hearing research lab, and at night I play music most of the time... when I'm not spending time at various music forums...
Currently I'm in two bands - one 50's style jump blues, called BlueStompers, and a more rough, modern blues & rock band called simply "Big Red". When I'm not playing amplified music I occasionally play guitar by the camp fire or playing sentimental Swedish folk music on my fiddle or my Suzuki melodica, of course!
I always enjoyed singing - and after experimenting with a lot of different vocoders through the years (I still enjoy my wonderful Electro Harmonix V256), I finally bought a VoiceLive Touch, so now a lot of Big Red songs have a couple of gospel singers doing backing vocals... :)This is an incredible sounding machine!
If you have any questions regarding controlling your VoiceLive via MIDI - I'm your man!
