Re: John Foxx - CR-78, Odyssey

i like his point about the new generation needing to work out how to make digital sound like digital, and not like its reproducing analog. though i'd argue people like mego, carl stone, oval, raster noton et al have already shown us how we can do that

Re: ASR X Pro

been thinking of picking one of these up as a cheaper method to scratch my ASR-10 itch (thanks to kanye west these are increasingly difficult to find a decent deal on) (also i have limited space even for the ASR-10 rack -- a table top instrument would be perfect for my setup) after comparing the man...

Re: Daft punk and fl studio?!

fruityloops, like most music software, hardware synths and pretty much anything you can make music on, is (was) only as "s**t" as the musician using it
