    • The Head-Case gun thread
      Defense ammo, or practice ammo?  I like Sellier and Bellot for practice (I find it to be very consistent), but really anything that doesn't use corrosive primers is fine for that.  Back when I had handguns, I kept them loaded with Golden Sabre.  Not sure if it's still an excellent performer, relative to other brands.

      Looks like that's the mic Peter. https://www.soundonsound.com/sos/mar08/articles/segeminiz5600aii.htm  
    • The Headcase Stax thread
      I will post some pictures when I get back. I wanted to get some extra current capability though for a new output stage, so all is well. Also, the next model up markets a toroid as an "upgrade". It's the K-07x which I can tell you is a completely different beast from the K-07. Once I drop in the new transformer, then I will plan where and how to integrate the output stage in, which should be fun. The new APL in the making here
    • The ambient/IDM thread.
      Strap in, we're going deep here.     At this point, this meme is fairly widespread.  This example actually flips the script on the standard model [Bernie says something profound] [Hillary says something fake.]  Also, it's an at this point extremely esoteric reference to mid-90s German minimal dub techno.   Taken at face value, both statements are equal.  M4 is considered a landmark release and is cited as one of the best examples in its genre.  Before it was repressed (several times) and released in a proper digital format (FLAC), copies sold for an MFing FORTUNE on the used market.  M4.5 is slightly less famous, but at least as lauded by the minimal dub techno cognoscenti.  Some electronic music graybeards (including, ahem, this one) consider M4.5 to be the better release.  Additionally, the two sides of M4 aren't terribly different.  Side B is a little more dubbed out and spacey, but the distinction is (ahem) minimal.  Conversely, M4.5 is practically a 1-sider.   Side B is less than 30 seconds(!)    Side A, OTOH, is a sprawling 13 minute dubbed out epic.  It takes even longer to get anywhere than either iteration on M4, but the melody gets slightly more energetic toward the end.  Whether or not it's superior to either side A or B of M4 depends on just how much one likes mid 90s German minimal dub techno.        Real talk, all 3 variations on the track are not terribly different.  It's good stuff, but there are far better examples of the genre that came out around the same time.  My personal favorite is Porter Ricks - Port Of Transition
