  1. Twitter seems abuzz. Edit: Poor search skills on my part.
  2. What utter crap. The "No Politics" stance is the most fundamentally political position you can take.
  3. The problem I had on the Tracker was this: when sequencing external MIDI gear from the Tracker along with the internal sampler, the MIDI sounds happened ~25 ms ahead of the internal sounds. Tuning the MIDI clock delay setting had no effect, which would be expected, as MIDI clock wasn't part of the equation. This was on the latest version back in March, and it hasn't been fixed yet. https://github.com/polyend/TrackerBetaTesting/issues/570 I read on Elektronauts the other day that Polyend have admitted openly to the Tracker having unfixable problems due to the limited CPU or whatever. Take it with a grain of salt, might be BS.
  4. Isn't this a bit of a contradiction? I've always thought that the colourisation from vintage gear has partly to do with limited bandwidth and dynamics. Like how tubes and tape seem to shave off some top end, some low end and some transients.
  5. The track in the exhibition is here at around 4:45:
  6. ...or what about UNTRKMIND? Animal Nite Train was a frickin' riot.
  7. ...and The Trusse? That USD track was brilliant.
  8. Black Friday all week And all other shitty weeks, too
  9. Good mix of Schwedisch und Norwegisch in their titles.
  10. It's basically simple Boolean logic, isn't it? If - then - else constructions. On the signal level, it can be as simple as a comparator that sends out a trigger once the amplitude goes above or below a threshold. Squarepusher mentions this technique in an old, German interview about Go Plastic: Boolean conditions are easy to implement in the modular world (including Max), with AND/OR modules, inverters, comparators, clock dividers, counters, ADSR envelopes generating End Of Cycle triggers, etc.
  11. I sold the Tracker after a couple of days with the M8 headless. The GUI is ridiculously fast, powerful and minimal. Muscle memory kicks in instantly and it feels more like playing a game, zipping between micro edits and macro structures. The major drawback with the headless version is that it needs to do MIDI via USB/computer, so there's a substantial delay if you want to combine internal and external synthesis. The hardware M8 has perfect sync, apparently. On the other hand, my ageing eyes and back appreciates the headless version, as it provides a much larger screen via my PC and the improved ergonomics of sitting in a good chair with a game controller. Considering buying the hardware version, but think I'm too old. Maybe there will be a v2 eventually, with individual audio outs, an HDMI socket and USB controller inputs? 😂
  12. Thanks for the reminder, closed my subscription now. Haven't watched anything there in months. Will probably start it again in the autumn when there's something new worth watching and the evenings get darker again.
  13. I think it was an attempted fix that was later retracted.
  14. Be aware that the internal sound engine of the Tracker is about 25-30 ms delayed behind the outgoing MIDI sequences. A total pain in the ass if you want to work with hardware only, as the the only viable workaround is to monitor/record through a DAW and set up track delays for all the MIDI tracks. Polyend has been trying to patch the issue since before version 1.3, and there still doesn't seem to be a fix available in the 1.6 beta: https://github.com/polyend/TrackerBetaTesting/issues/570 Just listen to this mess. "Always in sync", LOL.
  15. Good observation, hadn't stuck me. Edit: iii's Front also has a pretty clear nod to Touch Absence.
  16. The Alan Moore Miracleman hardcovers just arrived in my mailbox. 💣
