Three observations about NAMM 2018 so far: It's physically bigger than in years previous, including a whole new North section of the Anaheim Convention Center devoted to pro audio and large demo rooms. It's crowded, with an estimated attendance so far of 100,000. And, it's serioiusly synthy.
In this article, I'll provide a slide-show-style roundup of products and displays I've gotten to see the day before the show officially opened (hence day 0), with brief descriptions. Separate stories will include more detailed video of these pieces individually.
By the way, I apologize for the faintness of the text on some of the images. I'll use a different gallery format next time, but with typically slow WiFi at NAMM, I decided to get this up as opposed to redoing it.
Stay tuned for more show reports from NAMM 2018!
