Re: dated contemporary music that sounds like a cliche or fetish

I guess this could also apply to Interpol, but I have to be honest, I almost feel more inclined to listen to them than Joy Division.

Speaking of Don Henley, the War on Drugs often draws that comparison.

Re: Dreadbox - Typhon

How are the effects? Half of my interest in getting one is to process external audio.

Re: Favorite 80s rack mount digital reverb?

Which don’t hiss much? Any of them in good, well-maintained condition. A pcm70 can be a wall of hiss, or a thing of pristine beauty. The Alesis units are surprisingly quiet. Keep in mind, most hiss is generally eq’d out anyway when mixing, and imo a little hiss adds to rather than detracts from cha...

Re: What the well-dressed synthesist is wearing...

If you’re so inclined to wear a t-shirt, most plain tees look classic at any age, synthesizer or not.

Re: What the well-dressed synthesist is wearing...

A graphic t-shirt is never considered well dressed and a wardrobe comprised of them if you’re over twenty something is just sad. Taking any interest whatsoever in what others wear is kind of sad too. That statement is sad. Same thinking could be applied to paying attention to music others make. Obv...

coke is like adderral. for a person with adhd it calms you down and helps you focus. Take it from me. I once did coke and stared into a toilet for an hour
Yes, I did adderall once in hopes of cleaning out a garage but just ended up jumping between websites frantically for 5 hours.

Re: Why do people subscribe to using a format that likely makes it more difficult for them to be creative?

Yes, I have no clue how Al J. could of done all those drugs and make so much music let alone learn how to use a fairlight. He is superhuman in a twisted way I guess. I don’t know anyone who does coke and is more focused and productive on anything else aside from talking about themselves.

Re: Why do people subscribe to using a format that likely makes it more difficult for them to be creative?

Is it a sort of self sabotage? Eurorack and such. Is the motivation more about buildings ones “dream instrument” than wishing to express something unique? compared to other modular formats? :despair: Banana systems are nicer IMHO, eurorack is cramped compared to other formats.

Re: Why do people subscribe to using a format that likely makes it more difficult for them to be creative?

Being creative can be difficult and that's a people thing not a material thing. I guess my quandary has to do when the material interferes with the human. Maybe this is because they aren't looking to be creative? The seed of creativity and intention is there but in practice they seek the material r...

Ohh, that point I totally grok and can get behind. The endless quest for the perfect setup can sometimes be a distraction from actually making music. But, there’ve always been the gear-chasers, and more power to them, because their insatiable appetite for the perfect equipment is likely why we’re a...
