 I'm going to reserve judgement on this as I don't know the full story as to why you keep bringing this up.

The full story is the orginal DAT tapes that Klaus did leave behind was given to ONE person he did trust, . . . . . .

That's not the full story I am interested in, you've already "shared" that with us. I want to know why you keep bringing it up? If this "other" person is not you, then why do you care so much?  Also, I find it a bit two-faced that you find it horrible that someone is doing this collaboration with a person that is gone. But you find it perfectly fine to download other peoples music and not pay them for it. Both really are about control over the music. It seems to me that you care for the artist more when they are dead then when they are alive.  ;D

Yeah I saw one really cheap on ebay, so I went out to Noisebug for something else and while there did some playing around with the waldorf while in the shop. That's when I knew I had to have it, it does some pretty interesting things. Now I need to go back to Noisebug and purchase some other modules they had that I also tested out and now can't live without.  ;D

I picked up one of these last week:



So far it seems pretty cool.

For me it would depend on the circumstances of each case - the last recording I did with Oophoi is still waiting for release. Gigi also sent me a set of minidiscs and personally asked me to keep his music alive after he was gone - a project I've yet to get round to acting on anywhere near as fully as I would have liked to.

I to am in a similar situation but with A Produce. Barry the last few years made a bunch of unfinished tracks that he would just send to his musical friends for them to use or mess with if they felt like it. Several of us at one point talked about maybe doing a collaborative CD where we each did a track using that material. Also, I have maybe 20 CDs of sounds that Barry made, I could easily make another joint release using the left over sounds he gave me. I  have given it some not very serious thoughts about doing that, but that's as far as I have taken it, I haven't really considered the "moral" dilemma except that If decided to do it, to possibly asking his former wife permission.

Muslimgauze is probably the ultimate extreme example of this. He's been dead for 15 years, yet solo and collaborative and remix releases keep popping up. But I have to wonder, this seems more personal, you've posted before about this collaboration before, so I'm going to reserve judgement on this as I don't know the full story as to why you keep bringing this up.

In March I was up North visiting Robert. We went for a walk and his crows followed us wherever we went.  Of course him throwing them bits to eat kinda helped.  ;D 8)

The 921A....Oscillator Driver.... 8), What is it?  Rectangle LFO, yet there are only inputs no outs.  Is it internally wired?

Yes it is internally wired to the 921B Oscillators. It basically controls them giving them the same voltages.

Not sure what a Moog Mark V is, they called their modulars different names depending on the era they were made. My school had a Moog model 55 with two sequencers, that's what I originally learned on. Then later when I transferred to a different school they had a large Buchla 100 system that I spend a great deal of time on, it was too imitating for most folks. Each had their own thing that made them cool. I loved the touch plates on the Buchla, and the complex sequencers on the Moog.

Yeah the arp sequencer was a great one, I should have kept the two I had at one time. I wish someone would just copy it, most sequencers I have seen just seem to miss what it could do.

Back in the 1980s I owned both a Moog 15 and an Arp 2600. Here are a couple pictures of them around the time I was making my second album:





I think the only thing I have left from those pictures is that a-frame keyboard stand lol.

Jeff was such a nice guy, I enjoyed our conversations the few we had about music and such. I am glad to have known him. It seems like it just took him so quickly, hard to believe. He will be missed.

I ask about the Verbos Harmonic Oscillator as you show it in your modulargrid rack so I thought you had it.....often the only way to really know is to actually use the module.

You are right it is in my modulargrid rack. I see a few other modules that I don't have in there as well, I thought I took them all out, oh well. I sometimes put modules in my grid rack to see how they would fit if I were to purchase them so my grid is always changing. I mean that's really the beauty of it, you can test out things and move them around without having to actually move any real modules. My photos show what I actually have at the moment, except for the new module that I just purchased in the last few weeks.

Loren, what are your thoughts on the Verbos Harmonic Oscillator... lots of very positive comments abound but not heard any demos that really grab me, yet I like the synthesis idea behind it.

I've heard some great demos of it. It is on my short list of modules to get.

Here's my latest module, the Synthesis Technology Morphing Terrarium.



I need to pick up an attenuator now for it.

Everything and Nothing / Re: What is a soundboard recording?
« on: March 14, 2016, 11:02:59 AM »
What you just said is what I thought, but there's a Wikipedia page about bootlegs and makes it seem like it's still an audience recording.

Wikipedia is not the best source for everything, anyone can post anything on there and if no one knows better some misinformation might get left up as fact. That's why academia don't count it as a legit source for information.

As everyone else has said, a soundboard recording is a recording taken off the main mixer for the concert. Usually they are made for the band or maybe the venue to archive the performance.

I still buy CDs, instead of downloading files from iTunes mostly because CDs are better quality than mp3 files. But then again I won't pay collectors prices for stuff, so if I can find a decent version of something on Bandcamp or some other place that sells non compressed file formats I'll buy it there instead if the disc is more than what a normal used CD goes for.

In that last photo my friend sat on a stool and used his phone to take a panoramic shot of the studio, that's what its all stretched out.

I can imagine the new OB synth will take its place soon ?

You mean in place of the P12? No way, I like it too much, it's different enough from all the other stuff I own that I find it useful. I might get a desktop OB6 and put it off to the side if they decide to make one.

your synth rack with your prophet and all the sound modules it looks inspiring to me.
You everything kind of compact and kind of reachable while playing.

The only downside is that you speakers when infront your synth comes from the right.
That HP printer on top looks very hot lol

That printer is hardly ever on, I might put it somewhere else. Yes if I had an extra set of speakers I might put them on top of the synth rack.

I spot that Alesis Theremin

That is an Alesis airfx, I mostly use it live to give people something to watch instead of just me doing my email on a laptop.  ;D I send it audio and then manipulate the sound with filters or other effects built into that device using the sensor on top. It has some theremin type settings but I never use them, the airsynth had more of that.

That's exactly what it is, I needed something tall for my longer cables, so I took a 2x4 and cut it to the same length as the patch-cable holders, then routed out a hole big enough for the mic stand to fit in and screwed the cable holders to either side. It works pretty well.   :)

Adjustable height too. Very creative.

I've got a third cable holder now, so I think I need to get a 4x4 so I can have all three on there.  ;D Actually I will probably just end up attaching it to the front of the table for shorter cables.
