    I think I'm performing some synthy stuff in public tomorrow night at a rave-type party. Here's hoping I don't shit the bed!

    Not metal, but I'm really enjoying this performance. Really impressive real-time command of sequencers combined with live playing/singing.

    I am really interested in modular synths, even though I don't quite grasp how they work. Please share.

    Hoping inspiration strikes tonight.

    Sweet. I've got a Yamaha TX-81Z and an Alesis QSR so far. The only effects unit I have is a Zoom MS-70CDR. I want to get something for overdrive/distortion, that will work at line levels. I feel like my next big purchase will be a drum machine, possibly the Elektron Model:Samples. But I don't know, there is a point where owning more gear causes me to get less done.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Be safe, everyone!

    I'm absolutely loving my Synthstrom Deluge. More than just a groovebox, it also has midi I/O, 2 CV outs, and 4 gate outs. And it acts as a USB host, which I don't even understand but people are excited about it. Check it out and we can be nerds together. I'm modular-curious at this point, but mostly I'm interested in FM and other digital synth sounds. They're a lot cheaper, for one thing, but also I love industrial music. I'm trying to assemble a fleet of cheap old 90's-era rack synths, to run through effects. I have an Arturia Minibrute for bass/lead stuff.

    I really want to see these guys someday. The new album is crazy good.

    Happy birthday Iain!

    Thanks everybody! It was a pretty normal day, but my coworkers had a pizza party for me, so that was pretty great. I'm also celebrating the first anniversary of marijuana legalization today.

    Fuck in snow

    Yeah, it was a Colorado Low, the biggest, baddest winter storm system we can get here.

    Fuck in snow

    We just had a hell of a storm. Still have electricity, unlike a lot of people in the area. 20191012_130459.mp4
  14. I'm the de facto IT guy in my office, and I need to protect our data with something cloud-based that will do an automatic backup every day at a specified time. We have three computers, less than 1 TB in total. I know there are a lot of options, and I don't know what makes each one better or worse than the others. Can someone give me a really quick "get this one, stupid"?

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Outstanding cover of a Stan Rogers classic.
