  1. Spoke to all of them very briefly and were all really cool. Rich asked me where the toilet was at the Medbar and was very polite (excuse me, thank you etc) and I was proper in the way of Rob on some stairs at the same venue, to the point where pushing me down them was probably acceptable…. He was chill though and calmly kept asking me to move until my deaf ass heard him - thanks Rob 🫡 Every Ae gig I’ve been too Sean has been about chatting to people.
  2. The most incredible part of this for me is that people actually work at soundcloud. I wish that everyone had just stuck with MySpace and none of this mess would have happened….
  3. I’ve just started it. The cat is quite cool 😂 Finally finished Elden Ring. Went for the dung eater ending and might leave it at that…..
  4. Got back into Elden Ring as I have been mostly on GT7 the last couple of months. I know people are saying it’s the easiest From Software title ever but I’m terrible at it 😂 - I will keep grinding (I think) as it is quite rewarding when I do finally progress a little. I do think the game realises I’m shit at it. I was about level 95 in a strength build and the ‘phantom’ of Blaiid invades. Hours turned into days etc and I couldn’t kill him. I tried to cheese it by luring him and hitting him down a lift shaft…. Many, many attempts later I fall backwards into the shaft and die, he finally got fed up with whole the ridiculous charade and jumped in to end it himself 😂 It is my skills that are lacking as I use the Mimic Tear spirit ash when I can and that fucking slays. It often just keep out of the way and let that take everything down. I’ve had it if I can’t summon it though….. The game looks amazing on PS5 🤩
  5. Yeah GoW is a truly awesome game. was going to try and platinum it but the Valkyrie’s fuck me up big time 😂
  6. Rob looks like he’s just sold Chelsea FC
  7. Oh shit 😧 - RIP Mr Smith My Mopho has been getting a lot of use the past few months as it hadn’t been connected for ages. Fantastic synth. The biggest thing for me though is MIDI… without that I wouldn’t be as happy as I am in my life. I never learned to play an instrument and I’ve never really wanted to either. For some reason though I wanted to learn to program sequencers. Thanks for everything Dave 🫡
  8. https://www.scan.co.uk/info/proaudio/presszone/dawbench Dawbench is a good reference and older results will cover a wide range of setups if you have some older machines. as it runs on Reaper (and is a good suggestion for you to use as it’s free) you could test your existing machines and get an idea on whether you need an upgrade etc. the good news is that finally we can get a cpu that allows 6480 voices of polyphony 😂 - might be a touch overkill.
  9. I’ve experienced the midi delay when my mate brings his Tracker to my place and it’s pretty straight forward to sync things up. We just have straight 4/4 kicks on two devices and use the midi delay setting to sync up like a dj deck. Once done it stays in sync well. What’s strange is it’s different in his setup at home than mine. I use an Elektron MD as my master clock into a Kenton 5 way midi thru and the tracker uses one of those 5. At his place he uses a Digitakt as master clock. It’s something that might need tweaking if you change setups is what I’m trying to say. Great instrument, enjoy it.
  10. I must say WATMM, I’m a bit disappointed. Where is the VCV Rack patch of the modular rig? Where are the audio renders of the patch and subsequent ‘correct’ mixes of the entry with the Modular mixed in? Where is the ModularGrid page showing the price of the rig and what to buy? Where are the threads discussing whether the audio renders of the modular are new BOC and/or AFX releases? And why was Aaron Funk (Venetian Snares) singing the UK entry???
  11. Says the guy who 8 posts previous was talking about buying a portable euro rack setup to go with his MD…. with that you will be able to make bleeps! Amazing only £10k it’s a steal.
  12. I didn’t know the Deluge could be controlled by external devices. will have to take another look at them. thanks
  13. Cubase does this too since the warp audio thing. I’m sure the slices end up named like the Logic example Nikisoko put above. They can be saved from the sample pool or grabbed from the audio directory assigned to the project.
  14. Them sneaky them Ae boys…. Don’t forget Sean once said his desert island instrument would be a copy of Digital Performer and a mic 🎤 The only thing we know for sure is you need a Machinedrum, Monomachine, an MPC and a Nord Modular to make what you heard on the Quarristice tour. I would start there if you want to sound like them. The max/msp line is Ae’s tank driving, old bank dwelling yarn imo to throw you off the scent and protect the idm economy.
  15. Is it purely subscription based? I’ve been ‘given’ the plugins I own as native version’s of what is ready now and I’m hoping I get all of them eventually. It uses some form of ilok and I can add my licenses to the dongle for internet free usage. Don’t think I will have to pay anything. new customers might be different though….
  16. Ae playing a festival called aefestival that’s a pure coincidence… most idm 22
  17. Lol - I’ll admit I was necking a flask at the time either the NPC I summoned or the old boy’s spirit ashes dealt the final blow 😂 Even Sean Bean seems my friend now 👋🏼
  18. I’m back on Elden Ring due to GT7 servers being messed up. I’m currently level 61 and just mashed up Godrick the Grafted on my first attempt. My reasons for this are that I thought I had already killed him but the rune didn’t drop and I assumed the game had screwed up - I sniped what I thought was Godrick from afar and thought it was punishment for that but it was some other multiple armed fuckpig that doesn’t respawn. I just went off exploring other area’s and did some grinding. Suddenly a bunch of stuff has opened up and the game makes a bit more sense 😂
  19. In all seriousness Elden Ring is making me a tad angry 😂 - I’ve been one shotted by the wildlife wandering around never mind the bosses. I’ve played about 40 hours so far and I’ve still got no real idea on what I’m supposed to be doing. I’ve gone with a plain strength build and can hit quite hard at the moment but I’m squishy as poop due to trying to keep the weight down. Therefore anything can still wipe me out if I’m not totally concentrating. It’s about 12,000 runes for my next level up and I keep loosing them when I get to about 8,000 which is a little frustrating. the level up advice is about the only thing I can say too. Grind some areas you’re comfortable with and then upgrade a weapon. For reference I can one-shot the soldiers for fun with a long sword +5 but the miners in that cave took a couple, so they are a step up. took me ages to see that prick off on the golden horse. The tree sentinel?? I held my pad aloft in victory and swore at my tv…..
