  1. I got a used PC and installed Ubuntu Studio on it. Has anyone used a Linux DAW before? I think I'll probably start with LMMS for composition, and kick it over to Ardour or something for processing.
  2. I've never heard the originals in a proper environment. The KEF dealer in Winnipeg is mostly a mass-market place, selling lots of Polk speakers, and TVs and car stereos etc. I asked to hear the LS50s and the sales guy turned them up as loud as the amp would go, because volume is the most important thing. The entire store was too loud for a proper audition anyway. They're on sale for $900 Cdn right now, which is the cheapest I've seen them.
  3. The Arturia Polybrute looks and sounds pretty amazing. I want to get good enough at keyboards to feel justified lusting after it.
  4. I'm really sorry to hear that, Jeff. Condolences to you and your family, and fuck Covid.
  5. I should really start moonlighting as a barista
  6. There's a guy in one of my Facebook groups selling a Deluge for $875, including shipping to the US. It's a pretty good deal if any of you want to join the cult.
  7. Also, I really like the Bad Gear youtube channel, if anyone here doesn't know it.
  8. This guy's use of the Deluge is at least demigod level - he did all audio for this in the Deluge, including mixing/mastering. And I want to know more about his video sampling technique.
  9. I've been trying to up my barista art game. I can do ribs semi-reliably. I should probably use fattier milk for better results.
  10. Don't mean to change the topic but I have moved my setup to the living room for the next three months and I'm excited. As you were. Better photo.
  11. I need to play that at 1/10 speed.
  12. Those look neat, but I don't think they check all the boxes for me in terms of being able to play with the rest of my setup the way I want. Plus I don't want to try any modular gateway drug because it's apparently as addictive and expensive as cocaine. I ended up ordering the Mono Station. It has a pretty good synth, but also being able to step-sequence the filter, distortion, and other modulation stuff with external audio - that makes it a killer external effects unit IMO, similar to the Octatrack. I want to sing through it.
  13. It's super cool. I just don't know how practical the sequencer is (but you can set all parameters differently in every step in the sequence - super cool!), but if nothing else it's a good-sounding paraphonic analog synth that I can sequence with the Deluge. It's been discontinued for a couple of years, and they must have made way too many of them, because you can still get them for well below MSRP.
  14. I'm going to get a new analog synth, thinking of the Circuit Mono Station. It's got the OG Circuit's sequencer and then some, with the Bass Station II's (approximate) synth engine, and it sounds filthy AF. Anyone want to tell me to spend my money on something else? Waldorf Blofeld has me curious and there's a second-hand one in Winnipeg. Or I could just get a few Volcas. But damn, the Mono Station has a wild mod matrix.
