Re: Daniel Miller / Alan Wilder interviewed by me

I remember reading the Daniel Miller one many years ago... And have read it several times since. I've not read the Alan Wilder one before though.

Cheers for that!

Re: A Valve Polysynth in a Rack with MIDI Anyone?

Dependant upon the cost and features, I might well be interested. I love the sound of the Novachord and have taken an interest in the Metasonix Wretch machine as a result... But the Wretch doesn't quite float my boat as it lacks some of the features that I'm used to... Such as MIDI and user presets....

I'm pretty sure that you can do that with most synths.

Re: Which synthesizer(s) do you regret getting or selling

None. I carefully choose my synths to make sure I'm going to like it... I can't regret selling anything because I never have sold anything.

Re: Dirtiest sampler?

No no, I just meant the concept using an atari just for sampling i.e. loading software, having a big monitor seems cumbsersome... but it still sounds rad! ESPECIALLY if you can run audio through it! Ah! I get ya! IIRC, it's a while since I last used it, the software doesn't take too long to load, a...

Re: What Power Supply and Midi CV Converter for SH-101?

I don't know about the PSU but the Kenton MIDI-CV converter is very well respected.

I don't think you can buy it new but you should be able to hunt one down on fleabay without too much trouble.

Re: Dirtiest sampler?

Not a sampler as such but the Atari ST with Mastersound II sampling software (and cartridge) is about the dirtiest, nastiest sampling I've ever heard. 8 bit with a good variety of rates between 3 and 30 KHz... Clock based transposition... No anti-aliasing. that sounds great too, though given all th...

Re: list some of the forgotten digital multi effect racks

IMO the Quadraverb is vastly superior to the ART, I've owned both. Just to confuse things, the ART Quadra is reputed to be a good unit! Why not get a Yamaha A series sampler, all of them are able to work as effects units... And they have some damned good effects! I bought my A3000 V2 not long ago f...

Re: best mini digital recorder for my needs?

+1 for the H4, a brilliant little machine on the whole, though the menu system takes a little getting used to. The H4n is supposed to be much improved in that respect. And as previously mentioned, as far as bang for you buck goes, it's unbeatable AFAIK. I was considering trading in my H4 for a H4n s...

Re: Peculiar samples

Nothing massively wierd although perhaps like Tallow, I have sampled workshop tools and the like.

I'm still trying to get a decent sample of a duck fart though, that's the holy grail for me!

Re: Do people get addicted to flipping synths?

I've never flipped synths, or any other gear for that matter. I just carefully choose what I want, find a half decent example, buy it and keep it... I can't see myself selling anything in the forseeable future.

Re: What is the Oldest Piece of Gear in Your Studio?

I have a mid-late 50's Sony 1/2 inch two track reel to reel. Unfortunately the rubber on the capstan has fallen to bits and is awaiting replacement, other than that, it's all original and in fantastic condition. The fan is damned noisy when you fire it up though!
