Do you not know the tragic tale of The Shock Master?
Followup question: would they let you wear that helmet in formation? If they give you a hard time, just tell them it's religious.
Its official Star Wars merch. I first gave it a coat of metallic blue spray paint, then I sprayed it with clear adhesive, and covered it with silver and blue glitter. It's cool, but not cool enough to be worn in formation.
The only piece of hardware I have is an Oberheim Matrix 1000. The best thing I was able to get from it was the discount for Zebra.
(Not dissing it, I just like the flexibility of software. Plus no good editors -- ctrlr promised much, delivered little.)
Software is amazing. I've been using it primarily for most of my drum programming for the past few years (using an Akai XR-20 as a midi controller), but lately I've been doing more and more with the TR-8 and recording its actual audio. I just love the hands on feel it gives me.
That's the thing, the M1000 can make great sounds but it's just a 1U rack unit, all you have is bank/patch selection buttons on it. You have to hook it up to a computer to edit it anyway. Not hands on at all.
I heard a rumor that Selected Ambient Works 2 was made with a Matrix. Any analog synth routed through heavy reverb, delay, and tape saturation could have been used to make that album, though.
I'm pretty much just down to my piano and my bassoon at this point. I broke my SK100 :(
SK1 rather.. but I got a good deal on it and wanted to practice with circuit bending. This is also how I ruined a perfectly good gameboy and a furby.
That's a pity, I looked it up. The SK1 looks pretty dope. I don't mess with circuits myself. It seems cool. I have a Korg DDD-1 which is a drum machine a lot of circuit benders mess with, cause you can find them cheap and they have a really good programming interface. You should check it out.
Software's great I just like poking things.
The Elektron Machinedrum is the only hardware drum machine I'd ever consider buying, but it would be hard to justify the cost when obscenely powerful drum software like Tremor and Geist can be pirated in a matter of minutes.
For the few synths that they have software for, the Soundtower stuff is actually quite good. I use their editor for my Wavestation SR and one you get around the Windows 98 type interface decisions it works quite well. They seem like one of those companies hat's coasting on existing products that matured years ago and will never get updated (for example the manual for the Wavestation editor doesn't exist anymore, according to their tech support they lost all the files and the Wavestation Yahoo group members won't sare it because they jsut assume you want it for a pirated version - because who would believe a company woudl lose all documentation for their product and just not bother to do anything about it?), but they do work.
And Sounddiver is still pretty good (and so old nobody cares if you pirate it at this point, there's been some guy selling FTP downloads of he cracked version for a pop on eBay for years with no issue. Even if you don't pirate stuff - I stopped years ago - make an exception because so far it's the only really decent universal editor anyone has made, at least for Windows.
Wait, is it really you guys making these videos?
Glamtrooper Cena is the best.
Yup, its a chance for us music nerds to show off our sweet gear.
welp, guess it's time for me to upload something
I laughed at too many points in this video to count

Someone should do a Wesley Willis thing over that phat beat.
