  1. Oh absolutely - Such a gloriously real-word sound that I always forget it's an FM synth. That and Diva are my top two 'wait that's not hardware?!' sounding synth VSTs
  2. Depends on your definition of 'best' (most operators, wildest filters, most flexible routing, best ui) but If you want an exact DX7 sounding VST the 'best' would be the recent Plogue release OPS7 - https://www.plogue.com/products/chipsynth-ops7.html
  3. If you have an Android phone (might be an equivalent on the iPhone - though probably not without a good ol jailbreak!) I highly recommend grabbing F-Droid ( https://www.f-droid.org/ ) and then downloading DNS66, then switching on StevenBlack's hosts file filter. Blocks add nasties at a system level, even without root!
  4. I always heard as 'Try like a trier' or 'Tri ... like a triangle ..'
  5. Played the latest Smash Bros with my nephew last weekend, never played a Smash before and it was like the game equivalent of this: Just a mass of explosions and seemingly random percentage bars and flashing things and noises. Clearly getting waaayyyy too old.
  6. This should be good to go for about a week - https://we.tl/t-0EIcyW2BHu
  7. Left the VQGan code running for 3 hours - Here is the nightmare that I have titled 'Aphex Twin vs Autechre'
  8. Preview sounds ace - Can't wait to hear the whole thing 🙂
  9. I'm 7 fabulous sets deep and I'm still none the wiser - Are these new pieces, are they old thingies, are they remixes/reworkings of old thingies, or are they bespoke tracks just for these 'broadcasts' - Or all the above ?!
  10. Just played the first 6 levels and is very Zachtronics-esque indeed. So far I've found it easier to grasp than TIS-100 though (the only other Zachtronics game I've played). Actually finding the wording of the tasks to be the hardest part of if (some of the grammar makes the challenges a little ambiguous)
  11. Wasn't sure whether to post here or EKT but .... guess it's more a game to learn modular programming that a modular itself ! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1577620/The_Signal_State/ I've got Cherry Audio Voltage Modular and AAS Multiphonics CV-1 (and many Reaktor Blocks purchases) and aside from loading presets I've no idea what I'm doing, so think this will oddly help me !
  12. Quite possibly just my knack of knowledge of using msys/mingw64 as a compilation environment. Go through the build process and it stops right near the end due to a missing library 'libwinpthread.a' even though it's definitely there ! (/mingw64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/lib/libwinpthread.a) EDIT: Actually think it's just a case of tweaking the makefile, not sure why I didn't think of it before. At the moment it looks like it's pointing to /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib but it should be /mingw64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/lib EDIT2: Yaaaasss that was it ! .dll successfully built 🙂
  13. Yaaass - Been following the Github progress for about 3 years now (and every 6 months or so blindly trying to compile the source and failing every time near the end of the process). Thanks for the heads up 🙂
  14. Oops of course ! Seems like Lassi had a very productive couple of days in October '99 🙂
  15. How what why .... whuh ?! How on earth is that version sooooo different from the album release sounding like Gescom have eaten it and spat it out 20 years into the future ?!
