Re: Sun Ra synth ID?

I love most of the guy's work. Some of the more free jazz stuff of his is a little difficult for me, but everything else I just fall into.

Re: I got a Wavestation A/D today

I just picked one about a month ago (A/D). I had to replace the the screen since it was dimming out. I also changed the battery as well.

LOL about the TV show presets, but I know this thing is capable of some beautiful lush sounds.

Re: Sample storage - SCSI stuff and so forth

Thats sucks about SCSI for Samplers going out of business. I was able to find a SCSI card reader for my ASR-10 from them (a godsend!). Dude was really helpful also.

Re: Buchla website redesigned & updated with new stuff!

Note that this is coming from a single guy without a family to support. The responsibilities that come with a family would obviously be a different animal. Thats my biggest thing.

On a side note, an old friend of mine made a pretty cool dance remix of "Rotation" using a Roland U-20 & Akai X-7000 sampler looping that drum break that Milli Vanilli used on a bunch of their songs. Same loop as Eric B & Rakim's "Paid in Full". Anyone know what song that drum loop originated from?...
