  1. You’re probably right mate. I would describe my approach as ‘idiot optimist’ 😛
  2. The original post features the quote, "I would like to know a bit more, and the possibility of a Kickstarter is highly unlikely, but I'd like to know more." You've somehow become disappointed at your own made-up facts, then proceeded to adopt a pessimistic attitude towards the whole concept. That's quite the impressive mental odyssey, I must say.
  3. Let's face it, we're not getting any younger. It's time for Tom J to release his pension fund tracks!

    Give it 20 years, this will be true.
  5. Nice. The software editor for the TX81Z can make some crazy noises too. No real skill needed either - You can just mess around with all the parameters at random to get some serious FM twangy glitch shite going. I ran the attached sample through Ableton stock midi effects and the TX Software Editor. Sample wav attached - Feel free to use and abuse for your projects (check your volume before playing!!) ? TX_1_200bpm.wav
  6. Sounds rough Polytrix. Seems pretty crazy to redeploy a Speech and Language Therapist to a frontline pandemic situation. Almost like getting a car mechanic to work immediately on repairing a sinking cruise ship. As others have said, look after yourself & none of this was your responsibility.
  7. Try using ASIO4ALL http://www.asio4all.org/ Switch over to that in your Ableton preferences. Hopefully that may make a difference - worth a shot.
  8. Hi team - Some live hardware sets with edits done over three days - free to obtain; https://janehope.bandcamp.com/ https://prestonlogan.bandcamp.com/
  9. Selling a ticket at face value if anyone interested - Drop me a message

    11:00 mins in is some great acid
  11. Last album I got was Hello everything, I'd def splurge the cash on a collection of stuff like this.
  12. 21 Minutes in sounds a lot like this from 1996 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUoY2lRdUHo
  13. It’s the old disused railway station that you can see from Piccadilly Station platform 14. Popular with urbex types. Just signed up to WHP to the mailing list to await tickets. I was at the last one in 2011 on some seriously strong speed and pills. Pretty sure there was datamoshed scat videos that troubled my euphoric state... Vordhosdn live was sick though.
  14. its also a product of the 90´s i would say, nowadays no kid would have the patience to sit down take a manual and read it or even try something new. I'd agree it's a product of the 90's, but not because of attention span. It's a combination of different elements that coincided, which you are probably aware of; The popularity of rave culture and experimental electronic music at the time - pre-millenium optimism prevalent in pop culture. A good economy, relatively speaking, with a record industry that paid advances for its artists to live off. Major labels seeking out and nurturing such talent (Virgin hiring U-ziq for example, i think?) Digital audio software and technology taking off at rocket speed - The novelty of working with no defined hardware parameters (yeah yeah I know it was done on hardware, but generally speaking). So the culture was already there, allowing time and opportunity for these artists to develop and hone this particular style. Even if that meant slumming it for a while on a tiny money advance, there was always a chance that you'd 'succeed' in a sense that you could financially support yourself. Now that these factors don't apply to 2018, the same personality types that create this music are most probably developing their skills in other areas, simply due to the culture being different. So basically, what I'm trying to say in a roundabout way - Right place, right time! If this specific culture came about again, there's no doubt in my mind we would get a new generation of artists making similar music on the same technical, detailed level.
