Someone I've wanted to interview since I started the whole thing, and I got to chew the fat on all the good stuff with him, parti...

I would say one thing though, that you should be a bit careful about the choice of deliberately seeking out women or non-binary musicians. I only say that, as although I understand the desire, and agree generally, it does risk putting politics before content. It also risks creating a ghetto, by def...

There was even one female performer who got upset at Moogfest because they lumped her into the whole female/non-binary scene and she ended up cancelling the performance... The reason was is that they didn't talk to her about it first I think... Well, here is the article: https://pitchfork.com/news/...

Thanks for sharing mah vid paperCUT!!

Re: Tutorial video makers: please show the full patches

It's great to *hear* what the modules can do, but obviously beginners need to see how the patch works, so we can figure out how to replicate it with our setup. We also need to know what a module does, rather than giving us the name. This adds more time to the process as we have to look up what a Cy...
