Fuck dude. 2 big ones in the same day. Goodfellas will always remain one of my all-time favorite movies, largely thanks to liotta. 
I often think of him in this more obscure one from around the same era. At the time, Amadeus was one of my favorites. Looking back on it, it didn’t exactly age well but it still left it’s mark on me…

Oh shit 😧 - RIP Mr Smith

 

My Mopho has been getting a lot of use the past few months as it hadn’t been connected for ages.  Fantastic synth.

 

The biggest thing for me though is MIDI… without that I wouldn’t be as happy as I am in my life.  I never learned to play an instrument and I’ve never really wanted to either. For some reason though I wanted to learn to program sequencers.

 

Thanks for everything Dave 🫡

oh man. this sucks. i knew he had some serious health problems and feared the worst when h e announced he couldn't do his podcast anymore. RIP Darwin.  https://player.fm/series/art-music-technology-122010

 

I came here to post this, having just read about his passing elsewhere.

 

Sometime around 2009 I applied for a QA position at Cycling 74. I had an interview with Darwin, Andrew Pask and a few other people.Everyone was super friendly and I really enjoyed meeting them all. I ended up getting passed for the position. Sometime about a year later I ran into Darwin at an AES meeting. i approached him to say hi, and had no bad thoughts or even a desire to bring up the interview. He remembered me though and was (as far as I could tell) sincerely remorseful and empathic that I had been passed up. Not in any way lamenting who they hired, but he just seemed to honestly care how I felt about the situation. I was really struck by it and it stayed with me up until now.  

Outside of that, his articles for Cycling 74 have been tremendously useful and the podcast was great. RIP
