  1. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/394188952/2020-the-semi-modular-beat-machine And some heavily edited video: Basically I'm very interested in this, but not sure it's worth the investment for what I might get out of it. Seen a few reviews popping up in the weeks since I first saw it, but none of them really have any more information on actual real time usage or live demos; all we're shown is the video above and some links to performances where it's assumed a version of the software was used. I'm quite sure this guy isn't blowing smoke, but I'm also not sure how useful/good this will actually be once it's complete.
  2. I'd have to say fuck yeah! to this. $100 seems paltry when compared to one of the greatest and perhaps last remnants of humanity that will exist. If you've seen Star Trek The Motion Picture, or that one episode of Next Generation with the flute, you know where I'm going with this. Those records will probly outlast our planet when our Sun eventually engulfs us. Maybe we'll send something else out that far, but it doesn't seem to be a priority right now. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/22/science/nasa-voyager-golden-record-carl-sagan-kickstarter.html?&moduleDetail=section-news-2&action=click&contentCollection=Science&region=Footer&module=MoreInSection&version=WhatsNext&contentID=WhatsNext&pgtype=article&_r=1
  3. A lot of cool affordable synthesizers being kickstarted at the moment, anything you guys are looking forward to? https://www.kickstarter.com/discover/categories/technology/sound?ref=category I personally am broke af, but I'm hoping to back this as a late christmas present.
  4. Since the other thread has grown to 20+ pages at the time of this posting, I think it's a good idea to post a general "what's going on" FAQ to let everybody know what the status of the project is. I'll add to this as I have the time and address as many questions as possible. So, without further adieu: The Kickstarter is LIVE NOW! Click Here! 9/4/2014 @ 1:30CST: Huge news! We're lifting the number of contributor restrictions so anyone who wants it will be able to purchase it! More money for charity! More money for Richard/Rephlex! More money for the seller! What's this all about? What's "The Caustic Window LP"? How is WATMM releasing Richard's music? Is the world coming to an end? The Caustic Window LP is a legendary unreleased test pressing (only 4 5 known to exist) that was supposed to be released after the run of Joyrex EPs on Rephlex Records. For various reasons, it was decided to hold off on this 2xLP release and release other artists' music on the label. When a mysterious seller on Discogs appeared offering it for sale at an eye-watering 13,500.00 USD, folks jokingly suggested to crowdfund an effort and buy the LP so everyone could have a rip of the vinyl. Fast forward to a few days ago, and being the crazy bastard I am, decided to reach out to Rephlex and see if we could do it - and Richard and Grant said yes! We've been granted one-time duplication rights (aka make digital copies of the vinyl tracks) for 600 people all the people who fund the upcoming Kickstarter project to get a digital download of the music. Rephlex will never officially release this album, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime opprotunity to own some rare, classic electronic music! What's Kickstarter? Kickstarter is an increasingly popular way for artists and individuals and companies to fund projects and causes by getting individuals to "pledge" an amount towards a goal, and if the goal is met, the project owner then follows through with the promised items in return for the contributors' support. In this case, we're allowing 600 people everyone who wants to purchase one digital copy of the LP, at approximately 16.00 USD (around 10.00 GBP, 11,20 EUR). Kickstarter only allows whole dollar amounts, hence why it's 16.00 versus 15.50 previously. Kickstarter also charges 5% and Amazon Payments charges 3-5% per funding transaction, so the total asking amount is 9300.00 USD to offset these costs and ensure the agreed upon amount is met. Who gets the money? Since this is not a traditional record release in almost every sense, I came up with the idea that the money for the record would go to the seller (which Rephlex negotiated with to lower their asking price to 5,000.00 GBP (around 8,300.00USD), and the money from the Kickstarter will be paid to the seller. All involved (Richard, the seller, Grant) felt this was better than some collector getting it (and possibly leaking it onto the internet) and give the hardcore fans a chance to own this rare (non) release. Since the Kickstarter has been so successful, people have been asking what happens to all the excess money - that goes to Richard/Rephlex. Who gets the record (the actual record)? Once the Kickstarter is funded and the seller is paid, Rephlex will deliver the record to a professional studio for the vinyl conversion, and produce lossless digital audio files. Then the record will be shipped to me for the second phase of this project. Then what happens? After that, the record will be put on Ebay and auctioned off, with the proceeds of the money being split among Richard/Rephlex, and a charity to be chosen by the WATMM community. When's the Kickstarter going to, you know, start? Kickstarter themselves has to approve the project. No set date is available yet, but we'll do our best to let everyone know in advance. The Kickstarter has been approved, but is not live yet - It will go live on Friday, 11 April, @ 10:00 AM CST. It's live NOW: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/watmmofficial/cat023-caustic-window-own-the-legendary-record-by What happens if the Kickstarter doesn't reach the funding goal? Kickstarter doesn't charge you, the backer anything until the project reaches it's funding goal (somehow I have a feeling this won't be a problem) - all you provide them is a credit card number to hold until the project meets it's goal. The seller will be then free to sell the record to anyone willing to pay his asking price. Bwahahahaha... *wipes tear* How are the audio files going to be made? One of our community members who has experience in ripping vinyl is going to do this, and will be producing a direct rip with no alterations to the tracks (aka post-software processing) using high-quality equipment. The equipment we're tenatively planning on using is a Technics 1210Mk5G with Arkiv Ortofon stylus (that has been "burned in" for a good sound), and we have purchased a MOTO Ultralite Mk3 audio interface for this, although this is all subject to change if we figure out a better combination of analogue and digital equipment - our goal is to provide the cleanest possible rip, and we will NOT being doing any sort of post-processing as not to dilute the inherant quality of the audio. The audio files themselves are most likely going to be in FLAC format to preserve quality and reduce the size of the download. We're also considering hiring a professional audio engineer to do this, so stay tuned! We will be using a professional studio to do the vinyl to digital conversion. We have not decided on which outfit will be doing this, however. Will WATMM members get first dibs at the Kickstarter? You're here reading this, so hopefully you're already in the know (and a WATMM member). - A PM was sent out to WATMM members first letting them know the Kickstarter was live. What if I don't have a credit card? Does Kickstarter take PayPal? According to Kickstarter's Pledge FAQ, they only accept credit cards. Sorry! Why should I support this? Once the digital files are out there, it's going to be pirated anyways. Well, beyond the obvious legal reasons for doing so, my thinking is if you are a true fan of Richard's music, and a fan of music in general (regardless of genre), this is a no-brainer - plus, you're part of a unique event in music history! I think it goes without saying that the hope is everyone who is part of this "does the right thing" and keeps the digital files to themselves as something special. Plus, depending on how this goes (or not), this might open up future opprotunities (no promises - this is pretty unique in music history).
  5. Roel Funcken started a Kickstarter campaign to release the album The Faex Is Decimated on vinyl. Support richt here to claim your copy: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1472956459/legiacs-the-faex-has-decimated-on-vinyl-exclusive?lang=de
  6. We're all enjoying immensely Richard's amazing "release" (insert dump, pro-dumpers) of unreleased material via SoundCloud, and making them available for download. Some have even put together artwork and compiled them into collections, but being digital tracks, there's only so far something like that can go. What if you could buy a "Best of" compilation, on a physical format(s), selected tracks, remastered, etc.? Would you? If not, why not? Of course, Richard would need to be willing to provide masters, and agree to it to begin with... The mind reels at the possibilities...
  7. "An audiotape-based alternative to the turntable, providing turntablists with a more versatile and intuitive way to scratch." https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jeremyseanbell/the-scrubboard The following video is a demonstration of the early prototype. You should also watch the video from the Kickstarter page, the guy gave thought to the final product (i really like the idea of turning the Scrubboard into a keytar-scrubboard hybrid !).
  8. Kickstarter approached me recently asking if I would be interested and willing to be on a Music Discussion Panel at SXSW (South By Southwest) 2015 this upcoming March in Austin, TX. This is very much the story of music communities coming together to make great things. They'll be using the CAT023 project as a highlighted example of how fans and artists can come together and use Kickstarter in unique and exciting ways, beyond the traditional expectation of musicians using the site to fund new album recordings. Joining me on panel, if it is selected, will be fellow Kickstarter creators and musicians, Seth Olinsky and DJ QBert. Part of getting the panel to be chosen and included in SXSW is community voting - so, if you'd like to support the idea, go over and register and vote on SXSW: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/33675 If you are not already registered, you can do so here: https://auth.sxsw.com/users/sign_up We won't know if the panel is selected to be presented at SXSW until this Fall after voting closes. Here's the breakdown on how panels get selected from SXSW's site: "Voting from the public accounts for about 30% of the decision-making process for SXSW panel programming. Also important in this decision-making process are the SXSW Advisory Boards (40%) and the input of the SXSW staff (30%)." Voting lasts until September 5th at Midnight CST!
  9. Anyone else in the forums a fan of this rhythm/music game? I spent a good deal of time with friends, my brother, etc, playing this game and perfecting my button mashing skills when it came out (same with the precursor, frequency). Yeah, the music isn't autechre or aphex or squarepusher etc, but it was an awesome time! This was before all the relative shit music games... (I still enjoy guitar hero... I'm a geek I guess? lol). Sorry, back to the point. Harmonix is rebooting the franchise. Fans have been asking for years for a sequel to Amplitude, their second release after Frequency that really put them, and rhythm/music games, on the map. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/harmonix/amplitude/posts/848597 Thoughts? Any fans? Anyone?
  10. A retrospective exhibition celebrating the 21st Anniversary of the birth of the iconic record label Mo'Wax. "2013/14 marks the 21st anniversary of the birth of the label, and over a decade since the last release. To celebrate this milestone, we want to host a very special exhibition of the Mo'Wax archive, including never before seen artwork, proofs, paintings, toys and clothing, as well as personal notes and other memorabilia. So we need YOUR HELP to raise funds to restore the archive and put on the show. The exhibition will take place in London, but if we raise more, then we will try to tour it to other cities in the world! All the money we raise will go into finding a venue and installing the show, as well as framing, archiving, production and publicity. The exhibition will also coincide with the re-release of UNKLE's seminal album Psyence Fiction, with a special version of the album available exclusively to Kickstarter Backers." Seems like a reasonable enough kickstarter. I was a huge MW fan back in the late nineties, for years it could do no wrong as a label for me. Things got a bit spotty towards the end (Remember South?) but there's still plenty of releases that I'd happily go back and have a listen to now. Might throw in for the Psyence Fiction re-release, it's still a big favourite of mine.
