HOUSE was an odd and unconvincing episode yesterday (the first of a double) ... but it really picked up towards the very end.

Didn't take the test, but I type surprisingly fast. But, looking over it I always find so many errors I have to correct I'm actually much better off typing slowly.

Interesting stuff Mr. UnterShade.


I'm now listening to a load of early tracks I have here
- red joy reid / O-D-K / angina p / carbon based lifeforms / hazen / mutagene / dream long dead / and many others

was a great time back when the old originally started up.

He was also an enthusiastic promoter in north America of Mathias Grassow, an artist he greatly admired.

I also remember one of the tag lines on his emails:
"No trees were harmed during the making of this email; however, a large number of electrons were greatly inconvenienced."

I'm sorry to lose him.

The live part started just after midnight here. But I stayed awake for half of it.
Looking forward to hearing the whole thing.
I really liked your very gradual introduction of backing pads and rhythmic elements.
Worked well.

Started pretty late for me, but heard some of the live show and enjoyed it !
Was also fun to hear tracks from Shadows on Water just before.

Good stuff, Jonathan.

Good luck with that, Jonathan. I hope to catch some of it.

Hi James.
No, I've had no reason to look at it.

The reaper forum is likely to have some info/comments on it though

Bit of general info here for people who might want to know what reamote networking is

Will certainly be interesting to see if they can pull the narrative threads together in a satisfactory way in so few episodes.

Murcof: Remembranza

Brilliant album. Preferred over the recent Cosmos ... an album that didn't quite come together for me in the end.

There was a bit of rioting on a few threads when the lights went out.
Just a few smashed windows and some stolen mp3's. Nothing serious.

Its worth getting into, John. Solid, lean, intuitive program.

- Dac Crowell: The sea and the sky

I've always enjoyed Crowell's work. Kinda rich minimalist with repetition.
Thanks to whoever pointed this out a short while back in this thread.

Thought I'd sing the praises of Reaper (DAW/sequencer).  Windows only (mac version in the works).
I recently permanently switched to it from one of the bigger, more expensive and bloated programs.

I've owned it for a year or so.
Its constantly being updated/improved.
It has a surprisingly small install, and loads projects really fast.
It can also run off a memory stick ... so is very portable.
Its inexpensive. It's stable. It has most of the features you'd expect from a pro DAW.
You can record audio or midi into the same track.
Its skinnable. It has highly flexible track routing.
VST / DX / rewire plugins.
Great audio quality and excellent automation.

And, most importantly, I find it works right for me.

Terrific program. Well worth checking out if you are in the market for such a thing.

It was an appendix episode, in more ways than one.
