I ordered the box too; the Bandcamp tracks really hooked me, not to mention the beautiful artwork.

pinkcourtesyphone - description of problem + three themes
Two great releases from Richard Chartier and friends. Experimental soundscapes that belong in a David Lynch film. Love this stuff. The digital releases are 30% off for the next month on LINE; good chance to pick up some stuff.

Ishq - Summer Light
An hour-long piece that is dense with field recordings and light electronic flourishes. Like some of the other releases in this series, this one seems improvised and spontaneous rather than deliberate. Some of the environmental sounds and effects really shine with headphones.

In addition to the box I ordered two other ltd grassow discs on this same label.  Opus Posthumum is a reissue and Harmonia Mundi is the other disc.  Both are pressed CD's ltd to 100 copies.

I listened to the box set on bandcamp again and it is very good, I must've been tired or cranky the first time.  My box is on the way. That would be cool to have a hand signed copy.

Oh, no.  That's really sad.  I was listening to one of his solo releases the other day.  Was he ill or was it sudden?

Another great electronic musician down, Dieter Moebius passed away last Monday.
Hi Loren.....I think the title of this thread was a tad provocative in the hope of generating an interesting discussion and it was also my reaction to watching the video as I had not heard an 8 voices before and the sound even though youtube quality really shined in a way that quite surprised me.

As I mentioned in an early post I do think we are very fortunate as electronic musicians to have this array of analog designed instruments available to us both modular and keyboard, add the digital/software element in the mix and it is a very exciting time indeed  :)

I am not against having some old instruments around, I still have my OBMx, its about 20 years old now, still going strong, still being used. But it has value to me like your Matrix 12 does to you. Things that don't have as much personal value, like my Prophet VS, which was a nice synth that I enjoyed, I had to weigh the advantages to the possible disadvantages of keeping it. I decided that I didn't enjoy the interface that much and with some parts now being unumtanium I decided it was maybe time to let it go. The Prophet 12 seemed like a good trade off, as it has some of the VS type sounds with more knobs and a more modern package. Hey and it has a warranty.  ;D

Anyway, I think I took exception to your subject title that analog isn't quite there yet, and your example to me was kind of strange as to why it isn't. The 4/8 voice was a quirky interim poly synth that wasn't quite there itself! And once the Prophet 5 showed the way, Tom dropped it and came out quickly with the OBX, and no one complained one bit back then.  ;)

And I have to say if contemporary analog isn't quite there yet, well it's a lot closer then it was just a couple years ago. So give it a couple of more years, you might be surprised.

Also, when I was at the NAMM show last January I was talking to Tom and the others at his booth, they basically told me, if you want to recreate an old 4 voice, to buy 4 SEM eurorack modules when they come out, that would be the quickest and easiest way to do it.
