I think their concern is genuine... mixed with gobs of jealousy and butthurt

Joyrex,

 

Since I haven't said it yet, I'll say it now, I really appreciate you sorting this thing out, it's pretty cool to get something this rare (and unheard) digitally in high quality. :music:

 

Link us to the interview as well, eh? :emotawesomepm9:

I suppose one option would be to have Joyrex set up a paypal account in advance where WATMM members can reserve a spot by just paying up front. Once the kickstarter gets going, he could then just subtract the number of folks who have already paid up and merge the lists after the kickstarter is funded.

yeah cant we just paypall the money 2 you joymeng?? I dont have a creditfart

 

this is a good idea, solves many issues

 

 

Agreed.

Hey, Pitchfock.

 

Drukqs - 5.5

 

http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/225-drukqs/

 

Maybe they should find their headlines elsewhere.

 

I listed all of their Aphex Twin reviews once, it was a nice gradual curve from 9s to that 5.5; to play devil's advocate the reception of it was mixed back in 2001.

 

They gave Analord and Tuss decent reviews, but the site has changed a lot since then.

These digital rips will prevent me from playing Caustic Window at the wrong speed, which i did for longer than I'd like to admit.

Nice work JR, all. I can't wait to hear this.

 

Yeah I am very impressed at all of the work you've put into this. I would never guessed it would of been released (finally), let alone in this manner.

Yeah, I don't know if historical context is a pardon for being utterly wrong about something. I mean. I'd be hard pressed to put a number under 7 or 8 on anything Aphex does, because the quality is always pretty stellar. From a technical standpoint at least. 5.5 means you think it's a piece of garbage. It's really bad.

5.5 is above average.

 

Average when you are Aphex Twin is fucking shit. But also, .5 above average is pretty shit too. I mean passing a test is usually a 7. So, a 5.5 is a complete failure.

  1. Who gets the record (the actual record)?

    Once the Kickstarter is funded and the seller is paid, Rephlex will ship the record to someone I've chosen to professionally rip the audio from the vinyl, and produce lossless digital audio files. Then the record will be shipped to me for the second phase of this project.

 

 

I take it that 'professionally' means the following:

 

High quality equipment (i.e not half-busted Stanton 500 / Concorde through a Numark mixer into a Dell laptop)

Absolutely no declicking, dehissing, EQing, compressing, remastering or processing of ANY kind

 

 

I'm surprised no-one else has chimed in about this.

 

xy_politics is completely and absolutely right on this. Any rip that's done shouldn't be messed about with at all (not even normalisation).

 

Just a good, hot signal.

No, but seriously:

 

Why does such a huge website like Kickstarter, that depends on crowds giving money, doesn't accept PayPal? That is just beyond retarded.

not sure if you've already tried this, but Paypal provides free of charge 'debit cards' directly linked to your paypal account. If you request one now they'll probably have it in your mailbox by Friday

1 million percent agree!!!

 

People can mess about with it however they wish but the first rip needs to be a raw and pure data transfer.

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      Hi,
      I have a complete Analord binder (binder and records in mint condition) that I’ve owned from new since release. The binder was ordered direct via Rephlex’s website and the records from bleep.com as they were released. I haven’t played them and they’ve been in storage since buying. I’m getting more into buying synths/hardware and making my own music now and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a swap for their old/unwanted synth hardware.
      Ideally, and maybe in my dream world 🙂 ,I’d like a Roland JX3P or SH101, but would consider any sensible offers of analogue or digital gear. Also I live in England near to Folkestone in Kent so would prefer to trade with someone in London/South East so we could physically meet and exchange the items.
      If this of interest to anyone then drop me a message. Can provide pics etc to confirm condition.
