I sent links to a couple of songs I had written, but intended as examples of a free software sequencer I like:

http://www.wizardmaster.com/bludgeonsoft/wmcp/

It's a Windows based 16 step sequencer that can be used with most midi equipped analog and some rompler external synths. I thought it was unique as it can send a patch change with each note. (If you don't want the patches to change, or if your synth gets stuck between notes, set the second line to -1 all the way across.)

I also sent in the comment about Blue Monday having a remix revival.

Nick Batt has stated many times that he welcomes comments and suggestions. A few months ago they played two Fade to Gray covers made by people on this forum.

Did anyone happen to catch Goldfrapp at Coachella?

Unfortunately, I didn't go.

Busch*

it really reminds me of The Coors, or just her old Felt Mountain stuff, if it was using guitars and pianos instead of synths
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

the coors. strange. i haven't thought of them for years. and then come co-workers and i were just discussing them the other day. and now they come up here again. they were pretty poppy, right? do you like the coors? it's not a compliment to be compared to them, is it? or is it?

Certainly all of us who regularly listen to Sonicstate's podcasts :) (BTW where the h**l is the next one? Been 3 weeks since the last one...)
They had a short one last week. BTW, did you listen to the last one before they took their break? They played a little of one of my songs on it. (Don't tell anyone, but my real name is Dan Austin.) I sent Nick some topic suggestions for the show, and he mentioned my name about 8 times.
Hey, I'm on the show again (#89,) well at least my question about compressors and limiters. (I suppose I should start my own I Love Me thread instead of hijacking Goldfrapp's.) Anyway, they got into a great discussion about their use and revealed a few of Bob Clearmountain's techniques.
