Re: Cause of Squidstep and Siesta Submarina...

That is a really lovely piece Mr Pulse-I found it totally absorbing,fitting as it did very neatly between my current afternoon's listening of Boards of Canada and Amorphous Androgynous.
Superb.

Re: What was your first synth?

My first "proper" synth was the Jen SX1000,which I saved up for as a 15 year old in 1983.I loved it to bits.
Prior to that I had a Casio VLTone,which taught me about what ADSR meant if nothing else! :wink:
Got all the sounds from that on my Alesis Fusion now.

I just can't get enough of Multipac's music!
There are loads of great tracks available to download through his MySpace page,all excellent. :)

Alesis Fusion-made track...by Logan 5

I have just completed a track called "Remote Viewer" which was recorded almost entirely using the Alesis Fusion 6HD,except for the odd flourish of MicroKorg. It was recorded into the Fusion's 8 track sequencer,then into my BOSS digital recorder where the samples were added on. No computer is used in...

Has anyone heard anything by the Frenchman Bernard Szajner? I first investigated him in the early 80s after reading about him inventing the Laser Harp that JMJ used.I tracked down his album "Some Deaths take Forever" (1980)on vinyl and it was amazing. Years later I found it re-issued on CD.It has lo...

I have used mine for leads and also used the vocoder effectively on a couple of pieces.
I find it very easy to use and intuitive-I soon got used to the mini-keys after my teenage years of Casios etc.
I got the reverse-keys edition,I love it.

Like Monolith,I also own the Yamaha MT-400-I used it for several years before finally succumbing to a digital 8-track recorder,the BOSS BR864. I found that I could achieve very good quality work with decent tape,careful attention to noise levels and like any machine once you get to know it well you ...

I always wanted one of these!I remember seeing them at the time,but have never actually used one. I had the Sinclair ZX81 and then the Spectrum,to which I added a Cheetah SpecDrum using the printer port.It had some drum samples and at the time sounded revolutionary to me!I played it along with my Je...

My equipment goes into a small Yamaha MG10/2 mixer then to a BOSS BR864 recorder.
I'm very happy with this arrangement after many years using a Yamaha MT400 cassette multitrack!

I like it a lot.
I'm crazy for the Don Peake era of Knight Rider music and this sort of thing always gets me going!
"Asteroid" is good too.I wish I had the nerve to be a bit more minimalist myself!
Keep it coming!

Thanks Multipac,thats very interesting.I had never heard his work before.

By the way, your own work on Soundclick is awesome!
You have captured the sound and feeling of that classic period perfectly,I love it.

I sit most of the time in my studio,but occasionally I stand up for some reason then forget to sit down again and realise my back is getting sore form leaning over! Also I love taking my MicroKORG to bed with headphones,using battery power,and programming that way,much to my partner's amusement/irri...

I have a couple of Trisomie 21 albums.My favourite is "T21 Plays the Pictures" which is on Play it again Sam records,1989. I was always under the impression that they were from Belgium.Very interesting,atmospheric music w...
