Lighten up people please.  I guess some people cannot take a joke.  Sorry I guess when I saw Seven Headed Snake and ScapeGOAT as track titles I thought back to the last post.  I guess emoticons mean nothing, and others here can be naughty with their jibes, but it depends who you are.  It certainly does have anything to do with respect.  I can't kid someone because they're a well respected artist?  Hmmm, OK I guess... Anyway, shouldn't this have been posted under Forum Member Projects?

Honestly, drone on, you're clearly no saint.  [no emoticon]  But Stuart/Diatonis also previously told you and thirdsystem to "get a clue," when you reacted negatively to his prior post and he didn't exactly apologize.  So at this point you're even.

My Mini MiniMoog,



Had this mother for a few days so its still new to me but its really straight forward as far as tweaking sounds.....it sounds very very good and its reasonable priced, actually its a great deal when you consider what your getting, oh and the build quality is first rate.

Ran the sequencer a few times and re clocked it externally which gave it some interesting patterns. Also functions as a keyboard.

Have not explored the patch bay in much depth yet other than taking the direct pulse and square wave outs and patching them into the main modular.

This is a great piece of kit whether a part of a larger modular system or just by itself hooked up to a midi or cv controller.

It seems to me that Stuart (Diatonis) is simply drawing attention to his new album here.

Fully agree with you Pete! I really appreciate your sophisticated and always nuanced view with all your post on this board!

A bit of respect for an established artist is surely in order ?

Obviously and unfortunately lost here recently.

Simple Minds--Theme for a Great City.  2xCD, two shows from 1981 and 1982 in Sydney.  This is simply one of the best live recordings I've ever heard, from any band.  10/10, both performance and sound quality.  Where did they get this stuff?  It must've been from radio shows.  It sounds like it was recorded yesterday, not almost 35 years ago.  The New Gold Dream set is amazing, almost bettering the studio versions.  From about 1981 to 1984 this band was total class.  Experimental, moody, haunting at times, yet accessible.  This was before their sad demise into bland stadium rock and totally selling out, much like U2 from Joshua Tree forward.  Both NGD and Sparkle in the Rain were IMO two of the best rock albums of the 80s. 


This sounds great. I am a huge fan of the period of the band from '79-'84. NGD and Sparkle are both great, but my favorite album of theirs is Empires and Dance. A lot of people still don't know about their pre-watered down era, believe it or not. I've turned a few friends onto them by introducing them to those early albums.

Paul Vnuk posted some cool demos of his two units on FB a few weeks back.  The location of the patch bay reminds me of the Korg MS-20!

I'm beginning to like the look of a couple of Mother-32 units.
Having the patching all on the side, with a clean accessible control panel is attractive and practical.
Maybe even get the 3 tier with a moog case to put some non-moog modules in.

It's about 1 year after the post about Seren w/*Oophoi and Corbacho CDs being up next but no info recently about what if anything is being released this year.  Any news?
