  1. akai timbre wolf. or is it too cruel?
  2. they made one decent album, which is honestly not that great. ugly bland grunge guitars and boring riffage. buddy holly is probably the best weezer song. pinkerton stinks, as overrated as it gets plus it spearheaded whiny diluted emo music and the lyrics are creepy as fuck. blue album is an almost perfect power pop album. i'm not saying you have to like it, but it's not that hard to appreciate how smart and well written it is.
  3. had one for almost a year. amazingy versatile, but you kinda have to get used to the way it sounds as it's not exactly the warm roland analog sound. but possibilities are almost endless. two adsrs, crossmod, multishape lfo. polyphony is amazing, fiddle with adsr and you can get it to sound almost multitimbral. it's great. programming is fine, but there's an max for live plugin for it if yer realy lazy. highly recommended underrated synth.
  4. if it was analog it would sure as heck say so on the case. so yeah, looks like more of their virtual analog stuff. bummer. kinda.
  5. if it's ms20 mini-style analog recreation i'm all for it. if it's like tr8 or tr3 just in a different casing.. not so much. if it's a recreation but requiers baby hands like the boutique stuff i will be disappointed as well.
  6. why would this be a weird question? asexuality is normal. some peeps just don't dig all the sex jazz.
  7. maybe its this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BbLIgnPTlA
  8. even if obama and the gang believed the coup was justified, you can't just go around telling people they can overtake the goverment by force if they feel like it. so i would take any 'statements' with a grain of salt.
  9. ghostbox is going strong this year. first belbury poly, now pye corner audio.
  10. i had to change flats because neighbours at the previous one had a habit of blasting radio pop hits at full volume at any time. it was so loud i couldn't hear the music i was listening to at home. i used to work nights, come back at 9am just to be woken up 2 hours later by kanye west listening sesh. i will never understand what's so great about listening to music so loud it turns into noisy mush. especially since you're not that into music, you just listen to the radio, and you just play it loud because.. you're brain damaged? is that it?
  11. i recently started doing some recordings on minicassette, which is to microcassettes what beta is to vhs. i found a recorder and 10 tapes (new) for 2 euros. proper ansering machine quality.
  12. im gonna see autechre 3rd year in a row. and this time - 15 minutes from my home. this is kinda insane and great.

    this is probably my fav ae since quaristice, which is my fav ae ever. kinda wish they would trim it down to 100 minutes or something. i know its heresy but i'd much rather have a tight album i can go through in one sitting than nearly 5 hours i have to scatter across my everyday activities. it's just overwhelming to absorb if you're planning to listen to anything beside autechre for the rest of your life. i hope they won't go physical because i will 100% buy it and it will probably bankrupt me.
  15. i always though it could be some ensoniq (sq80?) or analog poly with xmod (jx8p?)
  16. legowelt gave out the best tip - record it to tape at 120%, then slow down the pitch on the motor during playback. requiers a 4track. effects are pleasant. for a random tape smudge just record to reel to reel and sometime slow the tape with your hand during moemnts you see the tape smudge fit. also - use reel to reel with old / used tapes. this gives the best fidelity while also doing some proper damage. cassettes are ok but get muddy easily.
  17. i always found MHTRTC too hiphoppy and a bit too chill. geogaddi is where they really found "a voice of their own". a (near?) perfect, thought-out album. everything matters there. TH and TCH are nowhere near the first two in my book. decent albums, tho.
  18. not sure how algorithms compare between 4op and 6op with two ops turned off, so maybe yes, maybe not really.
  19. dx9 is 4op so dx7 won't produce the same results. too bad my fb01 doesn't support tape input :/
  20. this. i dont think its much of a masterpiece for people outside the afx fandom. its a very long, very chopped album with inconsisten moods that has many great tracks but is just very tiresome. sure, if you listen to it enough times you get used to it, but people who have nothing to gain by listening to drukqs until its easy to digest just won't have the time nor patience. it's overwhelming. i like drukqs just fine, but find it not properly organized as an album (dickish thing to say, i know, who am i to judge and etc). it feels more like a predecessor to the soundcloud dump - just throwing stuff out there for people to figure out and organize. and i guess it kinda works that way. but i prefer my lps tight.
  21. reface dx are so cheaply made that i'd rather have a volca. also volca is 6op.
  22. spend like 4+ hours a day making tracks from now onlive somewhere with a good scene go out to shows//raves//gallery installations//indie film premieres//etc (depending on your style) make friends with everybody (like forge some genuine friendships, not just promotional) eventually get in good with venue owners//promoters//label guys//directors//etc do that shit watch your fortune grow be okay with living on not much money because u chasing the dream i lived off music for a few months last year and this is how i would describe my road there.
