  1. There is a Reaktor-esque module builder in the works which looks promising, and has a lite-version, early access beta available now - "Geco", made by Hora, a VCV developer Comes with a library of DSP and logic objects, with custom code imports possible too. https://gumroad.com/horamusic
  2. I'm investigating this one - Impromptu Foundry
  3. oh wow a cheeky black dog remix?!
  4. gosh darn it, farmer jenkinson has brought the fresh produce when was the last sqp record that sounded like this mashfest
  5. I bought Loomer Architect on early bird recently - https://www.loomer.co.uk/architect.htm I think that would cover all your requirements Runs as plugin or standalone Hosts and controls plugins Build your own custom sequencers for note and controller data Tons of logic modules Write your own modules in Lua
  6. Aren't most sleeves (from the early 90s onwards) polyethylene rather than PVC? polyethylene-lined inner sleeves (thin, slightly cloudy and crinkly) have been standard since around the mid-1970s, and they are generally considered safe (in my experience they are) before that inners were usually pvc-lined (a clear, floppy plastic), and they can be very, very bad for the vinyl long term. not too long ago I paid £200 at a fair for an original gentle giant on Vertigo from the early 70s, pvc-lined inner. the record was visually mint condition but there's a particular-sounding hissy noise that gets louder towards the end of the sides, which is caused by a chemical reaction (known as gassing) between the pvc and the record. gassing can take years to manifest itself (depends on storage conditions) eventually causing visual damage to the record and ruining it but if you catch it early enough, clean the records and get them out of those pvc sleeves they can often be saved. anyhow that's all about inner sleeves. pvc outer sleeves (the premium, "orange peel" texture ones) are still made and used but are usually OK because they don't actually come into contact with the record itself. the kinesthesia sleeve is that pvc material, with the graphics printed on it and the record directly inside it, which is the problem. here's the most recent discogs review of empathy box on vinyl: other notable rephlex releases in pvc sleeves - caustic window compilation original issue, and all of the analord series - there are even reports of analord 12s having gassing problems already so if you have those, get them out of those godawful sleeves pronto
  7. Bear in mind the Kinesthesia LPs will probably be completely ruined, gassed to hell because of the PVC sleeve and no inner protection (anyone with the original Caustic Window compilation will probably understand..) Add in 23 years of storage under bad conditions and it's a certainty. It's a quiet album anyway, my copy sounds terrible and it's been sleeved from new.
  8. Well, according to my discogs log I bought 361 records this year. Only 13 were of music from 2018 though. In descending order Aphex Twin - Collapse EP Autechre - NTS Sessions Fret - Silent Neighbour EP Jon Hassell - Listening To Pictures Kamasi Washington - Heaven And Earth 2814 - Pillar / New Sun Mr Fingers - Cerebral Hemispheres Dopplereffekt - Athanatos Loidis - A Parade, In The Place I Sit, The Floating World (& All Its Pleasures) Young Paint - Young Paint Sarah Davachi - Gave In Rest The Sea And Cake - Any Day Flame 1 - Fog / Shrine ..but better than all of those was the new reissue of Haruomi Hosono's 1989 album Omni Sight Seeing, which is a complete revelation.
  9. 1989, Haruomi Hosono (Yellow Magic Orchestra)
  10. The Undouchables and for my friends north of the wall: Kilt Bill Fife Is Beautiful Jocky III
