Here's the torrent of disc 1 (cut + paste because the forum software is being stupid with the link): http://thepiratebay.org/tor/4059158/Nine_Inch_Nails_-_Ghosts_I_(2008) Please note that disc 1 is FREE and that NIN seeded the big trackers themselves!

I downgraded from a MEK to a desktop to help finance the Odyssey, then sold the desktop because it just reminded me how good the MEK was. The matrix is fine, but the 3 char screen killed it.

12 bit crunch is magic on almost any drum sample for almost any purpose.

BUT... If the Andro had a more "vintage" look, I can imagine being more interested in it initially , before I've even had the chance to try it out. For example, if the Andy looked like a Jupiter 8 (one of the greatest synth designs IMO), maybe I'd already had one, and not just think about getting o...

I picked up an ES the middle of last year, got rid of it, and picked up a K2500. I don't even know how to describe it specifically, but the quality of sound coming out of the kurz seemed to blow the ES away (and I liked the ES!).

A Machinedrum and/or an 888 and/or an MPC. No point trying to decide which is better - is a rock drum kit or a tabla or a djembe better?

That said, the Machinedrum is definitely better.

technically, it seems to me in last third of the piece, you have some trouble with sync, as if ultra fast synth arpeggios doin supersaw n stuff lines are out of sync, not "clicking" together with beat set by kick/snare/bass. this becomes more obvious towards the end.. Yeah. I was liking the individ...

That would require the sampler option to be installed. Sadly, my 2500 doesn't have that. I've got an uninstalled KDFX kit here that I keep going back and forth with about selling because it's a PITA to install and I don't get nearly as much benefit without running external stuff through it.

Yeah, I've got that problem big time. I'm thinking hard about ditching the current mixer and 828 and just tracking into the box via an Onyx.

I only sell via buy-it-now with immediate payment required - filters out a lot of idiots. Filters out a lot of buyers, too, but oh well. People will contact you if they want to make a deal for a lower price, so you can just flip the auction price lower if you're willing.
