  1. never heard of sseth but I own this game and I think it's quite good. There were some problems for a while, I had some bugs esp in the multiplayer. I might have to play it again soon.
  2. I wasn't here at the older iteration of watmm or joyrex.com forums or whatever it was. I think I joined in high school, I'm 32. EDIT: Weird to think I'll probably be on here until I die but I've never even met any of you IRL (to my knowledge, even at Day for Night I somehow didn't meet anyone).
  3. This sounds better mastered than Syro, Ufabulum, and Damogen to me. I really don't like the syro mastering. The distortion profile actually sounds phat and warm on this one, his last two albums were harsh and flat and awful sounding IMO. This one breaths, you can hear drum transients and all the layers of sound much better. Both on speakers and headphones it sounds great (to me). I tried putting on some other music (venetian snares chocolate wheelchair album) and got bored and wished I was listening to squarepusher album because it sounds so good. I think even like it more than hard normal daddy mastering or go plastic mastering (which is really harsh and odd IMO, the high end is real freaky, but still excellent). Maybe tied with venus 17 or ultravisitor (super dynamic but I like it a ton). I'm not an expert on mastering though so, purely subjective opinion here.
  4. The first two tracks don't sound like it, speedcrank sounds like some 90s shit. Nervelevers sounds most like the damogen or whatever but I almost feel like he sampled one of his tracks from 5-8 years ago and remixed it with the 54 cymru beats break. Vortrack also sounds a bit like ufabulum or damogen style, but even that one ends up pretty awesome. Terminal Slam and Mekrev have a similar vibe synth wise to some of his more recent albums, but they sound, far, far more evolved from his last couple albums, a lot different IMO. Terminal slam and mekrev are also my favorite tracks, along with speedcrank. I think he uses certain synths /patches a lot ( a lot of these synths sound like that modern bass guitar track). mastering-wise I think this sounds way less flat than the past couple albums, breath of fresh air, better sounding IMO.
  5. Hades - An absolutely incredible rogue-lite game. Slay the spire - Very good, but I'm still quite bad at it. Been watching videos and reading guides because I just don't have the brain to understand optimal deckbuilding and all the other consideration like pathing, upgrade priority, relic interaction. It's very deep and it doesn't hold your hand...
  6. Wow yeah. Way better than I expected. The leaked tracks are better than the ones that were released at first.
  7. Finally have this soundlab track in higher quality. Listening to so much DMX krew lately that I am realizing how much influence Ed probably has on Rich (and vise versa), made me immediately think about this track for some reason
  8. I wanna hear the soundlab20 ... gonna get a digital release?
  9. This is really good. It really feels ahead of the curve in comparison to artists that make similar/recent stuff like this. None of the drum programming feels forced or out of place and is executed in a way that sounds GOOD from somebody who is clearly a master of their craft. Sounds godly on headphones too. The synths all sound awesome. Melodically it's good but not in a "this is catchy I'm going to hum this to myself in my head" kind of way, but also not shallow or bad or any way, SQUIGYCID's melody is tops and the other tracks serve their purpose, I only bring this up because I'm a melody nut. Definitely my favorite AF release from recently as well. Excellent, and good enough to be on rotation for years to come.
  10. I still really want to know what his setup was like for Rushup edge.
  11. Got this notification that i was quoted... see this thread from 2006. Funny to think i was just a freshman in college, fucked up family shit going on, and this is before the tuss even came out. afx got me through some tough times.
  12. maybe this sound without the chorus fx?
  13. I am surprised that Marconi wasn't put on the album:

    The Tuss

    I feel like The Tuss was an extension of the style afx developed for analord 10. It was such a refreshing style for Richard at the time, it seemed like nobody had ever heard anything like it before (what a tease for richard to release analord 10 and then slowly release analords, none of which sounded anything like analord 10). A totally new direction. Way different than CTD, or drukqs, or windowlicker, or RDJ. Different than everything he or anyone else had ever done really. Especially in how it is mixed, I feel like this is where richard got completely vintage-synth-nerd mixing desk technique crazy, it just oozes mixing perfection. Beautiful use of reverb, panning, eq, fade-ins and fade-outs galore all used to glue together tracks featuring analog and digital synths, recorded claps and other percussion, drum machines, classic breaks, organ leslie speakers, tape delay, real and digital room reverb, spring verb, so many different reverbs! The Tuss took this entire approach and ran with it. If he didn't multitrack this and recorded it like the other analords (into a minidisc recorder) then I'm doubly impressed. Considering the other "takes" we've heard (fenix funk and synthacon 1) sound like they were recorded live I almost believe they weren't multitracked, but who knows they probably were, the fades are too smooth for me to believe it. The last remnants of the tuss-era sound came in the form of xmas-eve track, minipops and some other tracks on syro and bits of orphaned deejay selek. I think soundlab20 has a bit of the tuss feel too but nothing sounds quite like the tuss IMO. What a great couple of records.
