Be an interesting comparison with my MS2000 analog emulation. Also 4 voices.
Love that synth.

I'm not a fanboy for analog (always did prefer FM and additive), but as far as analog goes I only have an original desktop Evolver (good mainly for sequencing) and could use a more knobbly and solidly analog sounding machine that has some variety. The four voices of the Minilogue are a definite selling point for me. I'm giving one a try tomorrow and hoping I will enjoy the sound and immediacy of the tweaking. Also hope the keyboard is not too cramped. I like to play, but have large hands.

I'll be buying one.

- been playing a bunch of Endless Melancholy that I picked up from bandcamp. Interesting material. Some are minimal subtle piano, some are Hecker-like drone crescendos.

- Fenton :: Pup  -- also bought from bandcamp. He is Shuttle358, but this time playing fairly minimal guitar. Good stuff.

Played around on that little Korg and it may look like a toy but it was really great sounding and very fast and fun to play, and at that price it will move a ton of units.

Good to hear your opinion on the Minilogue, Paul.
I'll certainly be picking one up when they hit the shelves.

Yep, it's like having a synth that is in a permanent state of change, always unfinished, always growing ....
I'd be broke and starving if I got into it.   ;D

Julio.

Dennis at Databloem is a good and trustworthy guy.

You know, he and I started Databloem together many years ago.
I sold the releases in North America and he sold them in Europe.
He eventually wanted to open a general web store for selling other label's releases as well,
and so we went our own ways, he with Databloem as a more general store, and me with the
DataObscura CDr sub-label we had created. But we have always been in contact, and he stocks
all the new DataObscura albums I release.

Enjoyable textures and tones, Julio.
And what a georgeous eurorack setup you have.
Very envious.  8)

I like your comment of being "as much a part of the audience".
I can understand that. With a complex setup and much patching, you can't always know
what will happen when you tweak something in the chain of modules.
An experimenter's paradise.

This new 4 voice analog Korg Minilogue is the cutest thing out recently, I think.
Yes, 4 voice, not mono.
And at $500 US it's a steal.

Good to hear it.
Many thanks, Chris.

This is a new project of mine.
Should be of interest to many people here.



Fictions and Poetics : Our Last Days

Fictions and Poetics exists at the crossroads of glitchy minimalism and ambient soundscapes,
with a healthy dose of poetic expression and emotional substance mixed in for good measure.
This first release, Our Last Days, points the way for future explorations.

I hope to be doing more releases under this name and in this general style.
Hopefully some collaborations too.

It is on Bandcamp, and is download only.

fictionsandpoetics.bandcamp.com

Please give it a try.
Comments very welcome.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hahaha ... brilliant !

Great to see someone playing Soft Machine.
Especially those brilliant Virtually tracks from the flip side of the Fourth !   8)


I still remember seeing Sabbath doing Paranoid in London shortly after it was released ... now I feel old   :-\

We don't simply shut things down just because a claim is made and someone else objects to it.
Reasonable people might expect to see that claim argued against if it is wrong.

Machnefabriek :: The Cold and The Quiet

18 short tracks written as a score for an independent film. Beautiful minimal pieces.
Much of it piano. Delicate and precise. Love to hear more like this from Rutger.
