I generally don´t like hip-hop. That´s why I don´t like Beastie Boys. I don´t like Bavarian folk music either.

When the input is overdriven, it´s never subtle -- when the overload light stays on constantly, the pitch will warble and produce all sorts of artefacts. Massive mayhem.

No, fair enough - but you will didn't watch the video did you? ;-)

Pitch is going up and down like the Assyrian empire. (thanks google auto-complete for that erudite variation on the bride's nightie.)

He's just making noise into a cheap mic. The distortion is coming from overloading the mic with noise. Do it into any mic into any input and you'd get similar. No kazoo.

I haven't watched that DVD in a while, but doesn't he specify what he is plugging it into?
I recall him going on about "how this trick will blow your minds, and half of you will run home to try it yourselves before we are finished."
I thought he also mentioned if he was plugging into pitch CV or ext in?
Too bad all my mics are XLR. I can't try it myself.

If they have detachable cables, you can just get an XLR-to-1/4 cable that will plug into the back panel jacks.
The greatest thing we ever have is the will to survive.

you would probably have to use an impedance converter. Most XLR plug mics are 100-300 ohms. Most 1/4" plug mics are 15k-20k. I am not positive it makes a difference. But I would be thinking the higher impedance would be more typical.

Lower impedance into higher impedance = not a problem.

at least we can mostly agree that the Moog film was pretty dull and something of a missed opportunity

since the feedback trick has been explained already,

It's totally OK if it's doesn't appeal to you.
But to nayasay?...the thing is, Check Your Head will outlive your grandchildren's grandchildren, and still almost certainly be better than all yours and your offsprings' music put together, whether you realize it or not.
And I don't even have to mention the influence of Paul's Botique. It is every bit or MORE important than Endtroducing or whatever electronic music album you care to name in the last 30 years;; not an exaggeration.

btw hip-hop IS electronic music. how someone could fail to notice is... :roll:

and yes you can do it on a Voyager, but it won't "sound the same" because a Voyager doesn't sound the same as a model D and your voice is your voice

I'll admit I used to raelly despise the Beastie Boys. But then I used to do a lot of work with the various University Co-Ops and their entertainment committees. So I got quite overexposed to the college sophomore taste in music.
Years later I still don't like RHCP, Rage Against the Machine or Smashmouth. But the Beastie Boys certainly got more interesting over time. Pauls Boutique is no "Fight for your Right to Party".

I was more into Rage against the Machine at the time, but their repetitive shouty lyrics get old after a while.
Beastie boys have more meaningful lyrics, not so "revolutionary war"-ish. RHCP I never liked.

That´s right, and so is Karlheinz Stockhausen.

Never been too keen on his music either.
