Re: Interested in a reprint of Allen Strange's Electronic Music?

I’d love a hardcover and would definitely support any Kickstarter campaign.

Re: How do you manage to actually record and finish a track?

do you just record the whole session and re arrange in chunks post record? Yes! That is my favorite way! Jam/record, edit, arrange, repeat until satisfied. do you plan everything from before? Sometimes I have an idea I want to work out, sometimes I don't. Too much planning kills some of the fun for...

Has anyone had their Tocante lose responsiveness/sensitivity over time? Does it take on a patina over time? I have a Phashi that I bought a few years ago, used. The touch surface was once much brighter and always responsive. Now, it doesn't really play much. In comparison, my newer Karper (also bou...

No ideas... sorry.

But, if you ever put together replacement sets for the S-1000 or D-1000, I'd be interested.

I've been meaning on picking up a spare set for these two for a while now.

You cray Alexa. Or just a troll.

The Sprout doesn't harm the plant and the electrodes are removable.

Here are a few more videos of me doing some more multitracked noise improvisations with the PIPE. I'm not a singer by any definition but I used to scream in punk bands and the PIPE is really fun to scream at. MADELAY and ORPHEUS are my faves so far.
