are these small boxes with the logo sticker on it effect pedals?

 

no they're just his boxes full of drukqs, as you see they're not plugged in at all. :aphexsign:

nothing is plugged in as he uses his md player lol Still I think this is as close on "aphex twin in the studio" as you can get

101 in very bottom left corner?

 

yeah, was thinking the same, except you should be able to see the logo.. Might be scratched off or taped across or something.

 

I think the Boss Pedal on the top right is a noise suppressor/noise gate. I got one of these and it's the same silvery colour, same 3 knobs as well. Not sure about the others, one looks like an old MXR phaser, but not sure.

 

the thing with the top missing looks very much like a Denon radio receiver my dad used to have, doubt very much that it is though.

 

Also there's the mouse and a bit of keyboard on the right of the screen, not very good at IDing old computers, but Id guess it's an Amiga.

 

anyways, it's all not plugged in. mime to daddy, I mime because you do etc..

this was the time when Richard said he was some kind of electronics genius and made or customized all his own kit hence the tape and stickers on everything like the SH101 and boss pedals

 

I seem to remember him having an ST on stage some old footage and the Atari was the music computer of choice back then with the in built MIDI and rock solid timing

rock solid timing

let's 'ave some numbers to back that up

This is off-topic but probably of interest to some people who read these forums. Anyway, I read a really good post on some forum recently by an employee from Dave Smith Instruments and one of his points was

 

"MIDI is generally prioritized much lower than the realtime Audio functions, both at a DAW level and an OS level (specifically USB class compliant drivers are prioritized less than asynchronous streams) so the timing probably won't improve too much until that is addressed"

 

The first version of Cubase released in 1989 or whenever, which ran on the Atari ST, was purely a midi sequencer. When you ran it on the ST then pretty much the entire machine's resources were given over to the midi sequencing, and the midi port used was the ST's built in midi port, physically connected directly to the bus of the motherboard, so there was no additional layers of protocols or USB drivers or Firewire drivers or the like to mess with the timing.

 

I'm not saying that USB and Firewire devices will always give worse midi timing results than the Atari ST, but there's more room for error in the USB/Firewire midi sequencing world than there was with the Atari ST.
