Just got an update from Bleep Support (which, I have to admit, is pretty damn good for the most part). Apparently Warp are aware of the issue and working on a "replacement programme".

 

So the scale of the problem is clearly such that they're looking to replace units on a large scale.

 

This got me concerned so i finally decided to open the thing to check the state of Schrödinger's Gonk. The sleeves are slightly bent indeed but the Vinyls themselves seem OK so i'm relieved...

would be very, very cool to have the vinyl but lets be honest on the whole it's a complete ball ache and not worth the effort

 

I used to be pretty hardcore with the old physical stuff but this set has to be best on lossless, though for an extra tenner I'll get the cd boxset

'Six of eight (midst)' on speakers is so lush!

 

Love it. A new favourite.

Listened to Session 2 on vinyl today. Sounds great. No playback issues. I can say that I noticed that the 3rd disc in Sesssion 2 was considerably more bowed than the others (all of them have a slight bump in them tbh) but it did not make the needle jump at all. If it were a 45 it might be an issue as I have some 45 rpm discs where that is the case, but as it stands I had no problems. Also, 9 chr0 is killer on wax!

From autechre subreddit:

 

 

 

NTS Sessions 1-4 is actually even longer on the physical editions.

 
Nothing too dramatic of course, but due to the way the sides of the vinyl are split up, and the tracklist for the CDs, there's technically a few extra minutes of sound.
 
It's most noticeable with "shimripl casual" and "all end" on both the vinyl and CD. Where the two tracks would segue into each other on the download version, they're completely separated on the physical formats. There's about an extra minute at the end of "shimripl casual" and at the beginning of "all end."
 
Some other small differences I've noticed:
 
On the vinyl edition, "acid mwan idle" (03-C1) fades in a bit instead of starting at full volume as it does on the digital versions.
 
On the vinyl edition, "mirrage" (04-A3) seems to run for a few seconds longer, and doesn't stop abruptly. On the digital versions, it segues into "column thirteen."
 
If anyone else comes across anything different on the vinyl or CD, let me know! I'm trying to find all the little changes they had to make for this monster of a package.

 

 

 

peal MA also is 30 seconds longer in the beginning

 

 

 

 

Did anyone notice that the harsh reverb sound at the very end of north spiral is longer?

I do. Not too fond of it (yet) but I'm sure it will grow on me like all the ae tracks that seem annoying at first.

I can’t even try to make that one happen anymore (but that’s ok...)

I will say that when I first listened live, it was during bqbq that “is this all new AE?” was confirmed. Most thought it would be dj stuff. The song still seems like a teaser to me.

I do not -at all- understand the problem most of you have with bqbqbq and flh. I can understand those aren't your favourites, but the hostility...

I actually just got my cd box set in the mail today and I was listening to it when I wrote my reply, still really like it. Had to turn down the treble a little bit on my amplifier, but that’s true for the whole thing, lots of sharp digital edges.

It sounds like Autechre pretending to be Autechre; like they’re making fun of themselves. I’ll just never listen to it on purpose, that’s all.

It sounds very good when loud and HQ :) strange mix of playfulness and sourness and bitterness and just f u c k i n '  t a s t y

 

Listened to most of CD1 in the car today and goddamn it sounds good in HQ blasting. Listened to the digitals via my phone>auxillary but lower quality mp3s/phone coloring the sound maybe, just no real comparison to my ears. Could easily hear the clarity and craziness all over t1a1. Dynamics are fucking amazing in that track. As I said up there, bqbqbq sounds so good up loud. Dancing little fairies in my ears. 13 ctrl goddamn them synths and them beats, same for debris_funk. Dirty rotten sex. Like hearing it for the first time almost. Not gonna say that the CDs mastering makes all the difference 'cause the digitals may have the same mastering and/or been listening to the lower quality as mentioned, but it doesn't matter 'cause it sounds so good.

I stick by my first impression of it four months ago (hell time flies):

 

bqbqbq is the sound of a clown talking to a psychiatrist - starting off joking and doing tricks before eventually breaking down when they talk more and more about their disturbed childhood.

 

Kinda this in musical form:

 

(and I really like the track)
