  1. Maybe vintage gear, however the cost you need to run a decent sounding home studio has never been cheaper. For the amount that it used to cost you to rent a week in a studio, you can build a decent home recording setup. As a result, people are spending less time/money in recording studios. Most recording studios have gone under, and the ones that still exist struggle and have to diversify their business quite a bit.
  2. my Beck disappointment came in a different phase. Odelay came out when I was around 13 and I saw him on the supporting tour. That was the first "real" concert I'd ever been to, and as a kid I loved that album. I also appreciated his evolution of the next few albums. However when Guero came out, it felt like an empty retread into Odelay territory, but without the ability to lift samples and get away with it. Everything in that album was too clean. After that I stopped paying attention.
  3. i would agree that we should stuff this stuff into one of the several other political threads ongoing
  4. i think its more popular than ever. so popular no one can get to it.
  5. It is pretty dope but can be a resource hog. Some of the ui is not intuitive and I feel like the modular amount sliders are a little to extreme, it takes some work to add subtle modulations in there. That being said, I think it's leagues ahead of Kontakt, which is pretty long in the tooth these days. one thing I really like about it is how you can assign (most) effects to a selection keygroups but then edit the parameters on each keygroup individually. This can get computationally expensive though, and I think its probably preferred to add effects/filters etc to a layer, which is a group of key groups. I find myself maxing out my relatively well equipped machine a lot from doing keygroup specific effects chains on 100+ samples. Its also really nice to have standard sampling along with pretty good granular sampling and the ircam stretch processing in there. The stretch processing is also a resource hog and I find myself bouncing out samples a lot of I'm using really slow speeds.weird that there is no demo though yeah
  6. im all for sampling and samplers but between uvi falcon, kontakt and max/msp, i would never need a hardware sampler except for live use.
  7. meanwhile on my computer i can take the same sample and turn the frequency spectrum completely upside down, rearrange the entire sample an infinitely number of ways and turn it into a 20 minute ambient track if I want. But lets obsess over the hi frequency rolloff and subtle bitcrush of those old akais.
  8. also the suggested videos at the end pretty much sums up my life right now-
  9. anyone got any idea what album/track he was talking about being mind blowing? apparently it's not "song of the children"
  10. i already got the box set but noticed today that the vinyl reissues are up individually on blargh - https://bleep.com/release/194796-pole-1 https://bleep.com/release/194797-pole-2 https://bleep.com/release/194798-pole-3 nice way to spend your last euros
  11. im liking it but i feel like the drums are too prominent in the mix. i have to crank it quite a bit to hear all the lush pads and whatnot and then theres just this snare in my face. that being said i've always found drexciya's drums a bit grating as well so maybe it was on purpose or just me.
  12. it does sound like a lot of these are standard, classic breaks with some eq/compression on them. i could be wrong and cant be bothered to go find matches
  13. some tracks can now take up to 3 days to do.
  14. will they be relevant in 2021 tho
  15. i somehow bought this on preorder, late one night in a daze. im not even sure how i came across it. pretty dope
  16. i hope afx doesnt sue for that sample aphex lifted
  17. synth nerds. idm nerds.
  18. I'm sure Obama would rather wait for Joe to do it anyway.
