  1. Ana Galvañ - Press Enter To Continue Weird short stories, vaguely sci-fi, vaguely screwed up stuff either inside someone’s head or maybe it’s actually real - hard to determine. Also hard to determine where this falls on the scale that runs from interesting to pretentious. Difficult to follow, too, but the last story was quite good and I also liked the one about the circus featuring a romance (maybe) between a trapeze artist and something called “the human doll”. Has an unsettled dream-like quality I like. Intriguing.
  2. True, but you have to take into account they've only had universal healthcare for less than ten years. Also, they only expect to have it be truly universal - meaning for 100% of the population - sometime this year (says Wikipedia). So, you know, early days.
  3. Pretty good nasty Russian sounds. The last track is particularly annoying. 👍
  4. As far as I can tell, in central parts of Indonesia (so not on the outer islands) *basic* care is quite ok. Which, given that afflictions that are not in any meaningful way complicated to treat cause immense financial hardship in the US, the healthcare situation in Indonesia is actually better than it is in the US. For basic care, anyway. But, of course, once you get into the details for more, it can get complicated.
  5. No, I think I understand what you mean. Yes, this would be a challenge, simply because the US is so big and therefore the stakes so high, but I’m not sure it precludes simply making everyone have some form of insurance. It would be really big ? Again, this would be really big. But given US citizens’ distaste for big government, they might not actually want to have something like this anyway. Which would probably be ok. In the Netherlands we’ve had some form of health insurance for ages, even before there was a registry. So you could probably arrange for some basic form of universal health care without having a big complicated registry. Which is probably the most important point anyway. Right now in the US basic care, where most of the quick wins in terms of health outcomes are to be had, is insanely ineffective and expensive. Simply insuring people for things like emergency rooms and GP care would solve so many problems - and that kind of care would not necessarily require dealing with innovative drugs and national health care registries. The US is big, yes, but even the much poorer country of Indonesia managed to implement something like this - for 250 million people, so size apparently was not the biggest issue. Anyway, thanks for your reply. It was very instructive and interesting to think about.
  6. So what would be an example of something that works in, say, The Netherlands, with its 17 million inhabitants, that would not work if you scaled it up to 320 million US-ians? Not snarky but genuinely curious.
  7. Really? Do you have some tips on how to use it well? Because in my own - admittedly brief - experiments with it I couldn't get it to not sound like a gritty Freeverb type device.
  8. Cool. Really like what these guys do.
  9. That vintageverb thing seems to be crazy popular. Wonder why ... Wouldn't that just create a big smear? :puzzled:
  10. Hi all, @Nil‘s post in the GAS thread got me wondering: which reverb plugins / hardware are guys using? Both for weirdness and for bread and butter? (there’s once again some money in my music making fund and maybe an upgrade to Ableton’s built in reverb is in order, hence the question) For me it’s a spring tank for the lolz and Ableton reverb for bread and butter (and the free TAL plug-ins for when I’m using Renoise). I also have some Lexington impulse responses but I’m too lazy to use them. Surely there’s something better. Thoughts?
  11. This is pretty good. Sometimes steers a little too close to old school Squarepusher (which in itself is quite a feat) but it sounds absolutely wicked. +1 might end up buying.
  12. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a way. Problem is the M4L Live API documentation is really bad so it won't be easy to find how to do it. But it should be possible - hell, Richie Hawtin had a complete setting recall application built in M4L and I'm sure that involved reading and writing MIDI clips at some point. Off topic: a workstation keyboard made for "up and coming groovers" is, of course, awesome. I need one in my life.
  13. M4L, I guess. Use the step sequencer object and make it trigger when a note - doesn't matter what it is - comes in. Using multiple M4L sequencers on a single drum rack might cause some weird problems if you don't program your devices right, dunno. You'd have to try.
