Some people consider Second Peng the first Dubstep track, predating all others which are like early 2000

 

Do you agree or disagree with this assessment?

 

nah not enough bass

 

otherwise, yeah sure, we invented a genre, BIG DEAL

i invent 15 genres a week

Are you going to use the same generative programs you developed for oversteps/exai on the new album?

 

I recently heard the remix you did for Soft Ballet (Jailtilsli), which is amazing, but it sounds more like Chiastic Slide or LP5 than Tri Repeatae, despite coming out in 1995 (!!). Is there a reason for that? Like, do you sit on sounds or material for lengths of time?

 

 

I am getting really anxious to see you live. I hope you get to Detroit or Chicago soon!

I was really happy to see you give a shoutout to SoundEdit 16 a couple times and hear a couple tracks you've used it in -- what do you use now for similar editing purposes?

 

I'd ask for a recommendation for editing software, but I'm not necessarily interested in the "best" -- just something with a similar feel that doesn't require going back to OS9. SE16 was my favorite software years ago and I'm thinking of resurrecting an old OS9-era powerbook so that I can use it again.. I've never been happy with Audacity or other newer editors considered to be similar. Any recommendations?

 

usually i use digital performer but if its something really simple like trimming starts and ends i'll use wave editor

 

interesting, so you guys are still pretty die-hard about DP (digital performer)? I tried it a few times and never quite got into it but I know a few producers (one: bloodysnowman) who swears by it.

 

What specifically about digital Performer especially in the context of AE's music sets it apart from other serious daws like Logic, Cubase or Protools ?

i prefer the audio editing in DP

logic has caught up a bit but DP still has the edge for me

Has anyone asked about the "Fermium" video?

 

How did that come about, and what is going on in it? Do you see it as relating to the music in any meaningful way?

 

I see it as them being on a psychedelics binge and ending at that moment when it hits you like the shits that you have been created, are self-conscious, are one kazillionth the size of the universe, and are going to die and everything is beautiful and you're crying from terror!
