How is Blacet pronounced ?
Is it pronounced without the T sounding like the French Blase ?
Or does it rhyme with asset or what ?

Quick, someone call John.

btw, in my circles I've always said Blacet like "asset" but not sure.
Hmmm... been dabbling in Electronic music & DJing for 25+ years. Collector & curator of a fairly large vintage recording studio. Ran a couple record labels featuring DJ ESP, Hakan Lidbo, Jacob London, Martin Venetjoki, Vitamin D, Chris Anderson, etc. and licensed to greats like Carl Cox, Dave Angel, Chris Simmonds, etc. Oh yeah, I'm also a builder of D.I.Y. electronics junk, including a mighty fine modular synth.

It probably is Blass-set, but being from Texas and all, we would say Blay-Set.

I'm going to continue to pronounce it "Blaa-say" in the French manner, because it makes me feel superior.
