  1. wow jaysus fair play! So close yet so far, nice to know it is posible but as you say perhaps too tedious to keep doing everytime you want to use the feature c'mon Elekron!
  2. I dont know what it is but for some reason the Blackbox 1010 really turns me off, just looks so sterile! Also a bit pricey with as you say lack of physical pads. I'm sure looks can be deceiving and its actually great but not a huge fan of touchscreen. As far as i'm aware the Octatrack doesn't allow you to trigger slices via MIDI or any external input. Had the idea to somehow get a MPD working so would have the best of both worlds and do the MPC thing while in the Elektron workflow world but sadly no joy! Didnt realise the MPC 1000's went for so much money these days, maybe my imaginati
  3. been mighty tempted by any boom-bap making devices ala the MPC's or Roland SP's but now realising I should just focus on the good ole' Octatrack and go really deep with that, just such a bummer that you cant MIDI trigger slices, how have Elektron not solved this by now I probably shouldn't even ask, but are there any other hardware alternatives out there for simple vinyl/sampling beat making?
  4. I've been back and forth about buying one of these the last few weeks...think I may pull the trigger today - seems like quite the magical box, just hurts how expensive it is, but cant complain when it makes things sound so good...
  5. That was probably my favorite of the lot when i watched it ^ 😁 Dont get me wrong I appreciate it to the max but in comparison to the others it doesn't take the cherry. Possibly because I grew up on the other ones and saw this later in life...however same thing happened with Wrongfully Accused and I absolutely loved that, so maybe its just Leslie Nielsen who makes everything better! Shall just have to give Top Secret another watch soon
  6. Recently re-watched all the Naked Gun films yet again, always a pleasure! Wasn't too taken with Top Secret! If you havn't ever seen 'Wrongfully Accused' it's an absolute gem! Written and directed by Pat Proft who also co-wrote the likes of Naked Gun, Hot shots etc.
  7. You are doing gods work Of all the films you've uploaded so far - anyone you'd highly recommend, or are they all equally stupendous?
  8. Just watched Black Cat, White Cat recently! Loved it, such imagination and great characters - a joy to watch. Looking forward to checking out more - have been meaning to watch Arizona Dream for a while now, I'm guessing its quite different to his non-english work
  9. Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski Really cool docu on Netflix, genius sculptor/artist you've never heard of tells his story, lost all his work, crazy but all (maybe) true!
  10. Hustle and Flow Re-watch after many years - holds up wonderfully! An off-beat, feel good, blaxploitation inspired yarn. Wonder if Eddie Murphy headhunted Brewer for Dolemite Is My Name, has a similar vibe. Inspiring for all the music makers out there. Highly recommended! Humanoids of the deep Way better than i was expecting! For a b-movie/body horror/exploitation film it had a pretty big budget! Was shocked to find the director went on to make the famous 'The Snowman - walking in the air' animation. It's on Netflix at the moment (Ire/UK), worth a watch if you're into those sorts of fi
  11. Thanks for that - food for thought! shall rethink using LANDR now...may try some minimal mastering myself and A and B them to see what each is doing. The main thing which attracted me to it was being able to upload a full albums worth of songs, knowing they'll be equally 'processed', therefore probably sounding more consistent then If I would have mastered myself...also the price, €39 for a months worth of mastering vs. €50/60 per track...but as always I guess you get what you pay for
  12. Have also done much of the above - had tracks professionally mastered, tried mastering myself and used online services Have never really had experiences where the professionally mastered track blows me away from how it already sounded mixed, seems its just a damage control scenario for most making the levels suitable etc. however in saying that I'd say if you built up a good relationship with a mastering engineer who you felt you could have an open dialogue and go back and forth with you could most likely make a good track sound even better - but in my experience its usually with professi
  13. a lil' late but I recently picked up the Toraiz Squid (I had never heard of it before!) and i'm loving it. Its a pure MIDI brain/workstation with loads of ins/out CV sync etc. I've probably never been as productive with utilising my gear and jamming out ideas thanks to this bit of kit... There defo are some cons, but the pros out weigh it for me in terms of a completly offline (no laptop) MIDI sequnecing hub - having said that you can use it with Ableton and other DAWs as a controller and such too The main downside i've encountered is a max step length of 64 which isnt great (bu
  14. Wow 4 years ago! Back again with more tape questions Have upgraded to a beautiful Tascam 244 and have bought a bunch of nice high quality blank tapes Am currently recording straight to tape from hardware and then recording the individual tape outs to the computer for final editing but now am reconsidering the idea and thinking to record into the computer first, tidy up, then bounce to tape - just so I'm saving as much potential tape space However now I'm just double guessing the idea - am I potentially going to lose some quality in doing this? I vaguely recall some people online
  15. The Lighthouse Pretty much a modern masterpiece
  16. JoJo Rabbit Glad to see Waititi is still on top form, hopefully he'll continue to do the writing/directing/producer shtick and not sell out too much to Hollywood. Excellent performances and enjoyable throughout! He's one of few directors who can blur the lines between kid/adult films so well.
  17. That prog seems vvvery interesting - thanks for sharing! Also picked up a MKii recently and have been trying to get my head around it Saw some of that guys tutorials on youtube and thought he presented well, shall check more I think
  18. I think i'm starting to come around to this conclusion - just started thinking 'real songs are stemmed out and processed individually' but in reality you're just making more work for yourself in post I used to record live jams on an ole' H4N from the headphones out of my mixer and I honestly don't think i've ever mixed a song better by individually stemming it out and mixing it in the DAW than I have doing the 'live' mix method...also it's near impossible to recreate the magic you create when doing the live jam as opposed to tracking each synth one at a time Also its asking alot fro
  19. Thanks for all the helpful info! I'm still trying to get my head around this idea - is it that each input on the mixer has a separate out which is then connecting into a rack interface? So use the mixer standalone for offline jam then switch on laptop/interface for recording? (How did you get the rid costing 200 all together if the CR1604 is €698?) Also what do you mean by AD/DA? Sorry for all the questions, never thought buying a mixer would be so complicated ?
  20. Thanks for all the info and ideas! That mixer looks perfect but also on the expensive side (but I sort of expected as much considering all I'm asking for) Perhaps my understanding of what a sound card can do is wrong, but the main reason I think I'm avoiding the soundcard route is that I want to have all my hardware hooked up so that I can do a live jam without having to turn on my laptop/daw, but also have the ability to record the stems of each input if I decide to turn on the laptop Also could you tell me what the correct terminology is for recording AUX sends? That is to say, the
  21. Thanks for the suggestion, but seems to be an analog mixer - to clarify when I say record the AUX sends I mean via USB as a separate stem
  22. There's a 20% off sale at noise kitchen! Just ordered myself a softPop ?
  23. Would any of you fine gents be able to suggest me some mixers? I've been through 2 so far - first was a Mackie DFX-12 which was nice but no usb, second was a Behringer UFX1604 which had the ability to record stems via USB However, my biggest gripe with it was that it would record the stems 'raw' and not listin to the 'live' physical fader mix, nor could it record the AUX sends Is this impossible or just comes at a higher price tag? Also would like more inputs than 16. Any ideas?! The finer and cheaper the better! Many thanks
  24. Midsommar - loved it, wasn't big on Hereditary, but this is next level Westworld (1973) - loved it, 70's sci-fi always a hit, Yul Brynner excellent Demon Seed - good stuff! wasn't blown away as much as i'd hoped but apprieate the ideas and designs...cool soundtrack too
