  1. Anyone here still use their octatrack? It's still a great tool
  2. This album really pays off on speakers. it's a good car album. Not so into headphone listening to this. I think the highlights for me are The Pale Moth -> Dancers. Those two tracks together are beautiful.
  3. I think the acid line on mt st michel is just some acid riff he made and saved into his samples folder and then chopped it up. gated and filtered and resampled it with a tracker and added breaks and other vocal samples and pads. Could make it in 5 minute probably.
  4. Dancers feels like Spokes type of melodies. My favorite plaid album!
  5. Can anyone recommend a nice hardware EQ (digital or analog I don't care) that isn't going to destroy my wallet and let me apply EQ in stereo to my master chain on an analog mixer? It seems like this is hard to find. There are some cheapo graphic eqs out there but I don't really know if that's what I want. I really want some kind of 4-5 band parametric with stereo in a compact form. High shelf, low shelf, and then 2 or 3 bands that I can use to sculpt. I'm looking at the Orban 524B but even that is a little pricy. why is hw EQ so damn expensive?
  6. I haven't been lusting that much lately but there's some stuff that I have been seeing that looks pretty cool that has caught my attention. Kijimi: SOMA Pulsar 23 drum machine: The ORCA livecoding environment: (played around with this quite a bit already)
  7. He became a member on watmm recently iirc.

    peace nail

    this track is completely fucking insane
  9. This track is sampled by vibert in stop gap. "i can't stop". I know it from this song originally. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8U0i7qBnjg
  10. I use the kenton merger and the midi solutions midi splitter. The only reason I use a midi merger is so I can use midi learn on multiple devices at the same time using my octatrack as a central hub. Nice tool to have but mostly unnecessary
  11. then again there are quite a few tracks that people doubted were his when played live before release or were largely unrecognized. 1st 44(people thought it was jlin or something), abundance, pthex, simple slamming
  12. orbital and plaid, that's fuckin rad! Are there any other orbital/plaid remixes? They have a strikingly similar style sometimes
  13. I couldn't find a link. I think it's on spotify tho. I found it on google music. No youtube.. yet...
  14. This new track "Los" is fucking awesome. Probably my favorite of the new ones.
  15. This fucking video of RDJ arm wrestling is my favorite thing from the whole of coachella (scroll to the last video) https://www.instagram.com/p/BwenTNIg4cz/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  16. This is mostly speculation on my part, but I think the little intro songs and melodies he played in the beginning of each of these sets were live performances of melodic sketches that he and his wife worked on and evolved as part of recent shows. I don't think they represent any upcoming "full LP" release or anything. Though I wouldn't be surprised if some iteration of these ended up as a digital download on the Aphex store. The "chord stabs" track and the "brookyln" track definitely sound full track recordings that he is dropping. Whether or not they represent an LP, who knows. I would love to hear a new LP.
  17. Hah, he made even more new tracks at the beginning of his set. Was hoping he'd do that, my theory is that he's just been touring around with a little portable setup making little melodic tracks and then dropping them at shows before he starts DJing.
  18. That's from the collapse EP comment section supposedly: "peeps keep me asking who else was with me on stage, well for Turin it was the lush pilgroo...this was just before the Turin gig, im hiding behind as i just got out the shower...she was just playin wid me at the Turin one only, both got our own modular processing/gen/ spatialisation setups, she also was source of all vocals on Collapse ep btw." - RDJ
  19. No. There is a better version of the set (sound only) recorded by feedmenik https://www.reddit.com/r/aphextwin/comments/be2vkm/aphex_twin_coachella_2019_weekend_1_20190413/
  20. That's ok :) ... we're still covered for week 2. By the same guy that recorded this insane show. https://www.reddit.com/r/aphextwin/comments/be2vkm/aphex_twin_coachella_2019_weekend_1_20190413/elfolqk/
  21. I'm almost 100% certain at this point that the "ambient" tracks he is playing at first are actually being played completely live on hardware and not DJ'd. One obvious clue is that in this coachella set he accidentally switches the live version of the "Tha" bassline for 2 bars, the same version of Tha that he played at the ceremonia set in the midst of all the others. There's also no noticeable crossfading but the order of tracks and which patterns he chooses changes from set to set. Also the drum layer sounds very live and human. Sounds like he's been adding to it in his hotel room in between his sets and fleshing things out more. The coachella one sounds the most fleshed out, with all the drums, and the amount of content in it. it's totally possible that these are sampled loops, but my bet is that he has a small setup going on with real/software synths and drum machines. I think he's testing the waters for doing a real live set, he filled up nearly 20 minutes. I wouldn't be surprised if the 2nd coachella set includes more of this "live" content, could be chilling in his hotel room right now eating a burrito and messing with some new patterns.
  22. Why is he so good at catchy, evocative melodies? After listening to the other recording of the w32.deadcode I think it's just an unreleased mix of the same track. not really "played live".
  23. Holy fuck that recording sounds incredible.
  24. Really want to hear this version of w32.deadcode track clean: https://youtu.be/hwdo4B_tG4s?t=3435
