Pushing up the expected price ?

Someone is asking for $1000,
maybe it is a good deal to get it at $500.

Crap like that.

I have been working on a patch for the last few days off and on and its the first time that I feel the music has gone its course yet Im reluctant to dismantle it and start anew.  I have recorded the patch in three variations which I will post soon but right now Im wrapped up in this unusual, at least for me, sense of hesitation to wipe the slate clean.....its almost as if theres more there that could be sculpted, polished and possibly shattered but Ive grown fond of the sounds and their unpredictability and dont want to loose them, which I must.  This is so different from a synth where your hard work can be saved, recalled at a press of a button time and again.

Another part of me likes the impermanence of in life just a perfect fleeting moment.

You see these items listed on eBay, Amazon, Discogs, Barnes and noble, etc.  Some seller is asking $1,000 for a CD.  Goes without saying nobody would pay that much.  So what is the motivation for creating these listings?  I just don't get it.

Tangerine Dream Reims Cathedral 1974/Mannheim 1976 official bootleg vol 1 box set.  My final summation after multiple listenings is this set is very disappointing.  The Esoteric label has done high quality TD projects before, but this box is kind of cheap on a physical level.  The recordings are  typical bootleg quality.  They are audience recordings, hence lo-fi, flat, tinny, etc.  Why does every bootleg have some German guy talking to his friends?  And somebody's always having a coughing fit.  I mean who coughs that much?  I bet it was one guy who did it to sabotage all illegal recordings.  The music itself, though occasionally having some nice sounds, is very improvisational aka noodling.  For diehard fans only.

All computers are in the studio so if I want to show a friend something on the computer got to go to the studio....first time peoples reaction is amusing to complete dismissal of the flashing lights et el...."is that an old patchable telephone operator station" referring to my modular or "what are you going to paint on all those canvas's" referring to the acoustic sound panel hung on the walls.  It is strangers like someone come to do work in the house like a plumber or tiler that I get the "Wow" factor from.  Those friends that say nothing I think feel Im completely nuts and avoid going there and if by some accident I play my music then there suspicions are definitely confirmed  ;D

These are some really neat setups.

Slightly off topic: When someone--a friend or acquaintance--steps into your space for the first time, are they awestruck? Or do they think you're completely nuts?

Serge Modules in Eurorack format :)

Quote from Tip Top Audio who seem to be the future manufacturer

Ok fellows, I don't have any front panels to show you yet, but i can share some of the progress we've made on this project:

I have been talking to Serge for sometime now about making the Serge system in eurorack. It all started when I introduce him to our Stackcables, he loved it and said that very few people are aware of how shielded patchcords would enhance modules such as the Serge VCFs, VCAs, Ring Mod, which are already ultra low noise. He continued by saying that with shielded patchords, the modules will
attain studio quality performance. I guess that from that point  it was obvious, we are going to start a new Serge system in the best format in town, eurocrack.

Guinness ftw!

So this is how it's going to work, all modules will be:

1. Original Serge designs

2. Serge color coded jacks

3. Serge original fonts and graphics, work flow

Or in other words; the whole Serge experience.

Those who have/had a Serge know what i'm talking about. This is fun!

For starters, we are looking at making the Smooth and Stepped Generator (SSG) with added randomization, the Dual Slope Generator (DUSG) and the Wilson Analog Delay (WAD).

The fact that we are going to design all these from scratch give us the option to add features, but it is totally up to Serge to decide that. Â It is going to be his system and his ideas.

On the WAD we are working directly with Dave Wilson and hopefully we could figure out how to implement it with available parts.

The whole thing takes a very long time; Serge is a busy man so please be patient. I'm sure it is going to be worth the wait. It's a great joy seeing Serge drawing schematics again, and I will do my best to make it available for all of us to use.

Heres the link to the discussion
Thanks for posting.
Will add this info to my previous review.
May I suggest you also post the info on this re-release on ?
Just my 2 cents....
