  1. Finally received my TR-06 preorder yesterday. Such a fun drum machine, takes the vibe of the 606 and really extends it with some very useful features. I just sat and zoned out with it and the TB-03 for a couple of hours today, so good. Might add the SH-01A tomorrow for some electro vibes 🙂 I think my experience with it (and the other boutiques) has been made even better by people shitting on the Roland Boutique range by calling them "VST in a box".
  2. It turned up the next day lol. The CD preorder direct from Bleep (that I ordered when it was announced) took way longer than the vinyl preorder from JB Hifi..
  3. lol I haven't even received my SIGN CD yet
  4. I keep forgetting about tracks like this, all their one-offs and compilation tracks. I'd buy a b-sides collection release even if it doesn't include any new tracks, just to have everything in one nicely compiled release.
  5. QR code formed by the position of the letters
  6. I think sweepstakes said it better than I could. I actually haven't been using mine much at all since I built it and had an initial burst of inspiration with it. That said though, I'm working on a teensy-based grid clone so once that's done I'll probably be pretty keen to get back into norns development. Speaking of, Lua's really not that hard to get started with at all. The tutorials on the monome site are great; I was up and running with the beginnings of my little nanoloop clone in a couple of hours. Even if you don't think you'll make anything for it, it's still worth checking out the tutorials. From there, it's nice having that base knowledge for any time you might have a "what if I had a thing that could do this?" situation. Plus, getting something right in code, at least for me, provides a unique kind of rush (adaptation, backwardness etc) that I haven't experienced with anything else. As for Orca, I found it wasn't really great compared to the desktop version. It may have changed since I last tried it, late last year/early this year, but it just seemed incomplete. For me it's better on a screen where you can see a lot more.
  7. Yeah was gonna say this. Unless it has sequencing built in (like the Elektrons) I find it to be really hard to keep track of. It's not so bad on a rompler or when using presets, but switching between channels and tweaking the individual sounds on a knob per function synth like the Nord Lead is a bit painful.
  8. Two trains leave different cities heading toward each other at different speeds. When and where do they meet? Train A, traveling 70 miles per hour (mph), leaves Westford heading toward Eastford, 260 miles away. At the same time Train B, traveling 60 mph, leaves Eastford heading toward Westford. When do the two trains meet? How far from each city do they meet? Show all working.
  9. Yeah ecol4 is wicked, light Parhelic Triangle vibes imo. Also X4 is definitely the prog epic of the album, so good!
  10. 7FM ic is a weird one isn't it. Not sure if I get it yet. Can't tell if there's a melody behind all the pew pew.
  11. I feel pressured to get this on vinyl now that I've ordered SIGN on vinyl.. god damnit
  12. yeah I don't understand promotion hype tbh like, we're gonna buy it, just fkn give it to us
  13. Wow this album is so fkn good, wtf. This and SIGN were exactly what I wanted to hear from Autechre, I'm happy.
  14. Hearing some background noise in this so far, especially in track 1, where it sound like something has been mic'd up? Yeah bitroast was having troubles earlier. Keep trying, it'll eventually work!
  15. I knew it wouldn't be an "a"
  16. lol fucking hell I mean, I'm genuinely sorry if he's autistic or something (I mean this sincerely) and interpreted my posts the wrong way.. but shit, some of the stuff he said really made it easy to joke about.
  17. It wouldn't be the first time they've referenced a WATMM meme..
  18. Haha! Well, not anymore, since Ess has left (or is leaving) Elektron. It's nice that he thought of me for a sneak peek though 🙂 I hope it's a successful venture for him and his partner.
  19. I got the chance to play with a pre-release version. It's very nice. The sequencer can get pretty meditative / psychedelic.
  20. Nah, they changed their minds. Rob and Sean got sick of Wurstwasser complaining in the back seat, so Sean said, "That's it! I'm turnin' this car around!!". No holiday down south in the greens for us. Thanks a lot Wursty. Always ruining it for the rest of us.
  21. I don't get that you don't get M4 Lema. The comments? Sound like Blah, blah, blah, snore. Not necessarily bad, but if you don't like it who cares. But there's not much for me. Opinions are boring. An intro sleeping pill. May be just me. I'm more that positive review type of guy. Or the review development in Alcofribas. The kind of stuff which I probably expect from WATMM.
  22. Good type nerding. Century Gothic is to Avant Garde as Arial is to Helvetica—a filthy, horrible imposter.
