Re: What's up with Pittsburgh?

Although I can’t say for sure, I think they are discontinuing several modules. I emailed them about the dynamic impulse filter a month ago and they are apparently not producing it anymore. Primary oscillator may have met the same fate. The good news is that if you email them, they are very quick an...

Re: Klaus Schulze-like musicians

Some great stuff in this thread I hadn't heard, thanks to everybody for posting :tu: I feel I must mount a brief defence of Adelbert von Deyen because, although he is obviously not an artist of the magnitude of Klaus Schulze, he has done some really good stuff. Albeit I can understand why experience...

Re: Klaus Schulze-like musicians

But I never heard music reminiscent of Klaus Schulze. Do you know any ? Wow, has Klaus Schulze not produced enough material to satisfy your hunger? He has put out some box sets containing an INSANE amount of material. By the time you have listened through those, you won't want to hear anything that...

Re: Indian Classical Music

it's just a way of comparing and contrasting. It's what humans do Agreed. Labelling music through laziness and ignorance is never excusable but there does need to be some degree of labelling/generalisation to facilitate a discussion in these vast musical waters. Otherwise every post about music wou...

Any idea when we might see some more uk stock of Zadar? Just looking for a broad indication - a month, 3 months, 6 months?

Re: Music you sort of get but can't get get into

trying to get into new artists now is almost a chore The amount of new music available to an individual is overwhelming, and by new I mean things that we haven't heard before, rather than things that are newly recorded. Having an amount of dedication to exploring new material can be hard work, part...

you might change your tune I don't think so. Price/size/reliability/known issues, all factors for the consumer to consider before choosing to make a purchase. Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes you are unlucky, and I've been on both sides of that fence. In synthesiser heaven, all synths have the hi...

Re: WMD/SSF Amplitude VCA

If I had unlimited rack space, I would get one of these, they sound great and I love all my SSF, WMD modules. Maybe I could slot it into my plan for rack number 5? ;) I tend to play it safe with VCAs though, I don't want anything bringing too much colour, I tend to use outboard gear if I need that. ...

Re: New Wendy Carlos biography

I despise litigious people and Wendy Carlos often comes across in a very poor light with her actions/words. Perhaps we ought to consider though, that she is a deeply private individual, who has never courted celebrity. It must be galling to find someone seeking financial gain from publishing what yo...

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

Always grateful when people highlight issues such as this, it enables one to make an informed choice, which is all you can ask for. Equally good to hear from Xaoc addressing this encoder issue. On balance, it will not stop me acquiring Zadar. I had a Blofeld for years and when I was selling it, quit...

Re: Send in the drones

It all depends what your aims are I suppose, keeping the length down is definitely a valid strategy for getting listens and comments on here.

I can only imagine how deep this must sound on vinyl. Youtube is a woefully inadequate way to consume music, yet without it I never would have heard this amazing track, so I shouldn't complain too hard :lol:
