Re: What does rock solid build quality mean to You?

Stability, no wobbly pots and the ability to withstand travel. One of favourite instruments is the Lyra 8, it feels indestructible and would probably break a foot if accidentally dropped. I have heard very good things about AJH eurorack modules and am currently eyeing up a Minimod system :hmm:

Re: Coil

https://sallowworm.bandcamp.com/releases Always nice to see this thread bumped, it's one of my favourites on the site. Not many groups modern or otherwise bludgeon the senses and conjure mental visuals like Coil did. In this modern age of online abundance, the magic just isn't there. There is a lov...

Re: Best looking single origin Eurorack (aesthetics only)

Another shout out for AJH and Wiard 300. Although there is something about a big wall of Doepfer that I quite like

Re: Steve Albini

Love him or hate him, he could always see through the bullshit and his criticism of Lyle Preslar and other A&R industry pigs who preyed on and promised unsigned bands the world is spot on. His work ethic is also interesting, particularly that story where he sat at the console browsing gear mags and ...

Re: New gear from Moog, what would you like to see happen.?

Interesting point about newer Moog gear not quite hitting the highs of older products. Saying that, I had a blast patching up the grandmother this afternoon, it's still a joy to play. I would definitely agree that they missed a trick not releasing the Subharmonicon, the gap in the rack is there for ...

Re: 50 years - Favorite King Crimson

Whilst I'm not familiar with everything they have ever done, 'Red' continues to amaze. That record could have come out in 1993. Can't imagine listening to it back in 1974, it sounds like time travel

Re: Coil

just bumping that thread out of curiosity : is there anything happening nowadays that would fit on "Coil's wavelength", be it your music or someone else's? I did enjoy making this in the heat of last summer, I was listening to a lot of Sand, Colin Potter, Coil and Flying Saucer Attack at the time. ...

Re: Modern keepers!

Moog Grandmother - Placing the huge box on the table and unpacking it two Christmases ago was a magical experience. A Moog at home. Plugging it in and spending a year exploring was an absolute joy to behold. The be-all and end-all of mono synths for me personally, a bottomless playground, especially...
