  1. I'm not sure if Canada had the same RSD releases as US, but the FSOL and AA releases were not available in US. That aside, I couldn't agree more, actually quite dislike RSD. As someone who goes to the local shops every week, I find it irritating as hell that I have to line up at the crack of dawn if I want something on RSD. I guess this year was probably great for the shops as hopefully still pulled in people who only visit 1-2 a year and as I want all the shops to survive Covid, shouldn't complain. I skipped, just regular record shopped last weekend, got the one US release I cared about (Sun
  2. Of course, 20 minutes later and I still have not managed to order my CD... someone tell these guys that Bandcamp is a-ok...?
  3. Picked this up. I did not expect a big, folded up copy of the chart from the first post to be included.
  4. I'd happily pay 15% more so they could get their expected income if they moved to Bandcamp.
  5. I wouldn't consider a new Apple laptop until after they made the switch. Just not sure I want to wait until then before I get something new.
  6. After reading this, I read up on this and did find a number of things referring to the speed seeming to be slower. I appreciate you mentioning this, I had read a number of reviews but not encountered any references to it, but once I looked specifically, seemed to come up a number of times.
  7. Is anyone else here using a ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7? I'm looking at potentially picking one up ( i7-10510U processor, 16gb) - I would be using mostly with Live + Diva, Hive, Zebra2 and Max 8. Nothing about this is upgradable, so curious if anyone is using one of these for something similar that can comment on their experience... seems like should handle no problem. My mid 2015 MBP just isn't keeping up with Live with u-he synths like it used to, is constantly in a state of running out of space, driving me crazy.
  8. I'm digging this quite a bit, despite the name (I hear Stereo Dwarf, I cannot help think of Ralphus from Bloodsucking Freaks). There is a kickstarter for a 2xCD release of this ending very soon. Stereo Dwarf - Echoes Of Existence Stereo Dwarf is an ambient/chillout solo project by Kristian Thinning Andersen (Elysium/Sheyba) focusing on atmospheric, spacey and pulsing soundscapes, experimental psychedelica, evolving journeys, ambient washes, reverberating electronic textures, sequencers and rhythmic textures. Inspiration is taken from genres such as "Berlin School" (Tangerine Dream, Klaus
  9. Still can't download Dublin 24bit.
  10. Not sure if it has been mentioned, but the official GC remaster will also be available on CD, and will include the bonus material like the vinyl. Sent from my Pixel 4 using Tapatalk
  11. This is really good, definitely needs more attention, and definitely has not received enough play here since I picked it up.

    US tour dates

    Surprised not seeing a lot of talk about the recent US dates! Excited to see in Seattle tomorrow. They have any merch at recent shows?
  13. Never heard of these guys, but I was scrolling through posts and thought 'Giant Swan'?, um ok, maybe not. Then I accidentally clicked into the thread, followed the Bandcamp link, now excited to go pick this up in a local shop today. Love this!
  14. I'm the dork in shorts. Pretty sure there is only one of us. Sent from my Pixel 4 using Tapatalk
  15. I'm convinced we'll all be old and gray haired at this show. Sent from my Pixel 4 using Tapatalk
  16. I came to actually post about this and I was going to make a smart ass remark along the lines if it was anything like the RD-8, we wouldn't ever actually see it in the US. That prompted me to take a look and notice that the RD-8 is finally in stock everywhere in the US, including Perfect Circuit (where I preordered from) so hoping that ships pretty damn quick. Nice! I have the Cyclone Analogic TT-303, but I'll definitely pick one of these up if they are looking as good as all the other recent Behringer clones.
  17. Anyone catch the first show? Can't wait for Seattle show. Curious what merch they might have too.
  18. Did this become a real thing somewhere yet? Haven't seen on BC or anywhere else.
  19. Thanks again for the suggestions/info - I finally ended up going with the Livetrak L-12. More than I wanted to spend and probably more tracks than I will ever use, but overall looks much nicer than the other options and saw it was class compliant so I could easily incorporate iOS audio, a nice bonus. After I started leaning heavily towards the L-12 I did a lot of reading on the upcoming L-8 thinking I would hold out for that, but wasn't digging that nearly as much, but will very likely pick up one for my kid for Christmas, so Zoom thanks you all for the sales.
  20. Feel the same way, so much so that I tried to cancel my order with Amazon as just wasn't sure it was something that would get repeat listens. Sent from my Pixel 4 using Tapatalk
  21. This looks nice, but I couldn't find an 8 track and this is probably a little overkill when I was seriously considering the Pocketstudio. Looks like the L-8 is coming out at the end of November. Looks like another one that would have worked better than the Tascam options, but not sure I am patient enough to keep using the DR-40 until then ? The Zoom R8 looks much better than the Tascam stuff in the same price range. See I can definitely pull the individual tracks into DAW the way I want, even some amount of DAW integration, and can record 24bit, whereas Tascam cannot. Pretty co
  22. I moved most of my music hardware setup away from my desktop, which I have always used for recording. It seemed like the computer was always a distraction as my job is from my computer. But now I need a way to record tracks to later work on in the DAW. I'm looking at Tascam Portastudios/Pocketstudio - the digital ones look like they would let me import individual tracks into my DAW later as wav files. I'm not looking for anything too fancy, just something to get the job done (right now I am using my DR-40). Anyone have any experience with these, or suggest something along these lines that
  23. So glad I went with PNW as first module, great module to pair with a Neutron. Neutron + PNW + Squid Salmple and 5 minutes after mounting everything banging out some basic, noisy techno. Instantly playable. Going to be hard to not immediately move on to the above suggestions!
  24. The good thing about not buying every module I k kw I want right away is I will have a chance to really learn the modules I get before adding anything. But O&C has been mentioned elsewhere a number of times, definitely want to check out. Thanks! Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
