Quote from: vidnaObmana on June 11, 2010, 03:54:26 AMI too in my vidna years, along with Steve, worked (when computers were still too unreliable to use in live settings) with pre-recorded sources (on cd, using several cd players at once) which we then treated live through a maze of effects and processing devices. Rhythms were most of the time multi-track constructions and therefor impossible to reproduce live.Even then you had to rely on your focus and instinct in the heat of the moment because a lot of things could go wrong.It was still fascinating though to work with this kind of set-up as you could easily realize every time a different flow, structure and atmosphere. Live it was while you were able to reproduce your music world as closely as possible to the albums and the music you were known for.

Quote from: LNerell on June 25, 2010, 09:29:24 AMIf you haven't read the comments on John's blog take a look. I wrote that I noticed he is broadcasting Robert Rich's Echos session that he mentioned in his article. I then said perhaps in honor of this he should change the name of his show to "Echos Minus One." ;DJohn wrote back saying he saw the irony and also mentioned he saw the thread going on here. On a more positive note about Echo's if you get their podcast they just released a retrospective on Robert that is pretty good. Its a free download you can get it in the iTunes store, worth a listen.
