cause were old and bitter.

combichrist sucks, goggles suck..

But seriously.. I miss the diversity. I miss how you could go out and hear alternative, techno, goth and industrial all in the same night. Now it's just sort of a lousy rave where the music never changes and all the girls have bought the same dress.

Ah! The SY22 - a wise choice. Mine has a frostwave sonic decimator, placed right next to the vector stick for some yummy tweakings. But you could add on any filter you fancy.

And the myth of 'industrial music' continues. Probably just fading memories of (younger) more exciting times???

Oh yeah, a Nord Modular rack (or Micromodular) makes a cheap and incredibly versatile effect box. DIY was never so easy.

*sigh* replace "victorian garb" with "99 cent store witch costume"..

but that was dregs of yesteryear..

I mean all the rag doll haired, pvc mini dresses, huge boots, googgled attention whores with myspace pages and naughty *tee hee* websites. I can watch p**n for free without having to inflate someones ego :roll:

Industrial at it's best is a concept like punk. But even as a concept it's more than 20 years old now. I just tend to cringe when the "concept" comes off the shelf at the hototpic and onto a myspace page where people troll for comments.

steam punk would be cool if done by people that could cite other science fiction rather than steam boy and helising, which again, comes back to my myspace photo oppertunity quandry.

I wonder when rebellion and individuality are going to come back into vogue... It just seems to me these days everything is just about a myspace photo oppertunity and nobody really cares about having anythign to say beyond that :(
up evil and evil off are soooo damned good.
important ebm albums right there!

that's the weirdest coincidence this week... i just happened to be playing Up Evil AND Tyranny for You today at work! while i don't enjoy U.E. as much as i used to, it's still a good album and a huge departure for Front 242 (at the time). T.F.Y. was the first 242 album i bought and one of their best, in my opinion.

The Difference Engine! c.1990; pretty much cemented the genre as far as I'm concerned. Don't people read books any more?

But then, I am a crusty old industrialist. Just check my band's mySpace for proof, haha...

I agree with most of the other old-timers in this thread, by the way... and would also second the vote for the Electribe ESX sampler plus getting serious about loading it with your own samples... it is a crazy powerful box; per pattern you can have eight percussive/one-shot samples, two pitched/melodic samples, and two rex/acidized timesliced-loop samples all going independently with their own sequences, with a lot of FX and editable parameters per sample, and you can record automated parameter tweaks to each and every sample as a part of the pattern. Plus there's a line input. Geezo!

On the subject of synths, I asked this question once and got a response to this effect...

It's not about what you have, it's about how you use it, anything works, really

Other than that, get an ESQ-1
+1

This "industrial synth" thread is one of the most reaccuring threads here. It really needs to be stickied or something. In every thread (I've seen about 4), a couple of synths get constantly name dropped;

1) Darkstar

2) Pro-One

3)Access Virus

4)Evolver

5)ESQ-1

But seriously; there is no (insert genre here) synth!!!!. It is all about the production. Ok!?!?
