  1. That looks like a really interesting sequencer, cheers!
  2. Necromancing this thread because I always wondered whether he used Notator or Cubase, given those were the two main MIDI sequencers on the Atari ST in the early 90s... And it turned out (at least for Analogue Bubblebath 3 opener .215061) it was neither. There was a more obscure MIDI sequencer on the Atari ST called Dr. T's Tiger, and he used the cut down version of that, Tiger Cub. You joke, but I happened to use a toaster in my last track... Hell, I'm listening to .000890569 right now, and that starts off with a vacuum cleaner...

    Aww, yeah, I think they got me good and proper there... ?

    Might be interesting...
  5. I still maintain he needs to hire an assistant to help out with things like digitising his old tracks, so he can concentrate on actually making music.
  6. I tried that at the time of the CWLP, but Richard/Grant weren't interested... Thanks for asking back then, it was worth a shot! Yeah - I tried to convince them to do Melodies from Mars (aka CAT087) but Grant insisted Richard had 'plans' for it, and likewise for the ABB5. It's a hell of a long trip to Mars, innit? Huh, well that'll be nice if he does ever get around to it. It's certainly a good reason for saying no to releasing the existing version, that he's hoping to make an even better version instead.

  9. So can we look into crowdsourcing this like with the Caustic Window LP..?
  10. Ah, cool. I hadn't noticed it before. Thanks.
  11. Has this been mentioned here yet? https://aphextwin.warp.net/release/85662-afx-analord-07 I saw someone add it to MusicBrainz.
  12. He had a Roland R-8 early on (including the SN-R8-04 card for TR-808 samples, and Simmons tom as on Green Calx). At least, that's what I'm inferring from what DRN said. So perhaps the acoustic samples are from that too, distorted a little, with reverb from the QuadraVerb? I'm not sure, they're not the most interesting sounds he's used... I know he used the VCS3 a fair bit during the ...ICBYD/Ventolin era, I think for things like ring mod... And he'd do things like flange white noise, probably with the QuadraVerb... And he said he sampled hitting an ammo box from the inside with a wireles
  13. Thanks! Yeah, it's almost all hardware. The only samples I used were of the Mellotron. Everything else is my Doepfer A-100 through an AnaMod ATS-1. (I think that's right, anyway. I could be wrong, I've made a few more tracks since then and my memory's terrible...) What am I using exactly? Let's see... I think that about covers it!
  14. We should make a compilation of classic IDM tracks fixed by Watmm, with phudoshin's Coathanger edit and whatever else Albums "fixed" too. I am so ready for this! Selected Ambient Works 85-92 only i and Green Calx are now Sam's Car.
  15. :Unicode thumbs up emoticon that IP.Board censored in its infinite wisdom:
  16. Thanks! Some nice filtering and arpeggiating in that one... I used to have Agent X II way back, that was a fun one too... Ha, I don't think I tuned this one. Now you mention it, I did add the choir as an afterthought, and that might be clashing with the likely out-of-tune synth... I keep on thinking "this only has the synth in it, so if I record all the melodic parts quickly enough, I can get away without tuning it!" but then if I add any other instruments, or any more pitched synth parts the next day, that plan falls apart... I guess I should always tune it just in case. Good p
  17. This is very Monolith... I like how warm and dreamy it is. I'm not a big 707 fan, but that's just personal taste, heh... And it's hard to say if the detuning's slightly overdone or not... The arrangement ebbs and flows nicely, so you don't get bored by repetition. It has just the right amount of depth too. It could probably do with a B section, but that's more a critique of a whole genre... Very nice, I like it. It ends a bit sud--
  18. I swear that first one looks like it was written on a Philips VideoWriter...

    And yeah, I think I'll leave this thread, as it's much more fun to work out [Rhubarb]'s time signature (plain old 4/4, who knew?) than it is to debate whether I'm real for the hundredth time. What's a quirky thought experiment or abstract philosophical question for some is an attempt to invalidate the existence and lived experience of others.

    In a world where people are divided into Default and Other, and straight men are in Default, and women and GBT men are in Other, it becomes pretty clear why straight men have hangups about being perceived as gay or bi, while straight women don't. See also my previous comments about lesbians being assumed to "grow out of it one day" while gay men are assumed to definitely be gay, although that might also be accounted for by again things catering to a straight-male perspective, which might be egotistical enough to think that deep down he's irresistable to women regardless of our claims to the c

    I think we might be talking at crossed purposes a bit here, and also have different film and TV libraries... Say I want to watch a film, and I don't specifically care about the sexuality of any of the characters. Maybe I want to watch The Social Network, for example. That has straight couples making out and having sex in toilets, and it has two presumably-straight women kissing for the benefit of the men watching them at Harvard, and it has no men kissing each other. (Yes, I know it's based on a true story, art imitating life and all that.) You pick any film or TV show in your collecti

    Watch those videos, by people who know the science. A trans woman's brain is closer to a cis woman's brain than a cis man's brain regardless of whether she's switched hormones or not, and vice versa for trans men. That's why it's technically true but disingenuous to say that switching hormones won't make a trans woman neurologically female: she already is. That's what being trans is.
