Re: Peter Gabriel...

Saw PG in 87 or so - first time I'd seen a performer stand on the edge of the stage, arms out, wait for crowd behind to hold up their arms - and fall backwards into them, and carry on singing while he was passed around over the crowd. That would have been the So tour? The one with the lighting desi...

Re: Infos Zoom R16

There used to be a Zoom forum.. try asking there? (I can't remember if if was an official or unofficial forum).
I see there's a 26 page thread on the R16 in Gearslutz - I bet someone answers your question there!

But by the time you've mixed down do you really need 96k?

Re: Infos Zoom R16

I have one, and the 8th input is sporadic and occasionally stops working. Huh, I wonder if that's "a thing" with the R16. Happened on my R24 as well. I found a thread online somewhere where it was suggested it's because of those damn jack sockets which refuse to release the plug without a fight. Th...

I was wondering about mentioning the Fripp Exposure version of Here Comes the Flood - that Fripp album is excellent.

That's not a bad printing and cutting machine - I used to operate a Heidelberg platen press, for fun at school, no health and safety back then, serious shit.

Re: Digisound 80 refurbishment

Another welcome to MW SynthFreq!
And thanks for the reminder to get my act together and sort mine out. It was last out a year ago with my mates for a jam, but it got noisy and scratchy in a bad way. Not unlike its builder.

Re: Krautrock?

re. Phaedra I remember playing it to my older brother and his wife and she found it creepy and disturbing. I mentioned that to a musical mate numerous years later and he reckoned it was because there's no bass line, so it's unrooted. Pointless trivia - a mate's girlfriend was called Phaedra - she wa...

Re: Transferring cassette recordings to computer/mp3

In any case you can do it with even just one single input : you'll just need to solo each track and record them one at a time. No way can you do it track by track - as Technolologear says it will get out of sync. I agree with Technolologear that a stereo mix out could be a good option if you don't ...

Glad that connected! Yeah I've ordered the first two albums as CDs - I'm old. My mate who I mentioned them to said they remind him of Public Service Broadcasting. I've heard one or two of theirs and reminded myself, but Grasscut at their best seem to have something out of the ordinary happening. (Ma...

Re: Open back headphones

I'm totally biased as I used to hold an executive position at the company. Take this with that in mind; any of the "Made in Austria" (not made in Chine or EU) AKG headphones are fucking ace. I use a few K812s and K271 & K270 units. More those those, but those are my mainstays. ...checks his AKG ope...

Sadly no mud.. whoops, I mean I was gratified to find they were expressing their artistry without cheapening their act.
This was the time of the sexy TV dance group Hot Gossip and this lot wanted to make clear they were much more aware. Edgy and odd spiky stuff!
