    RIP Frank Robinson and Albert Finney. I'm a big fan of Finney and his role in Miller's Crossing is my favorite.

    Don't know about Trash but Iris 2 for $29 is insane! It's in my top 3 synths (of course I'm no huge expert,.. on anything). This sale make me want to buy it again! BTW I'm a big believer in doing that kind of stuff Dusty. If you really love that effect, you might want to take the time to build a sample instrument with it so you'll always have it.

    Yes, Soundflower is actually excellent. I'm not sure if you'll need it but there used to be a companion app called Flowerbed that put an icon into your menu bar so you didn't have to open Audio Midi Setup to enable/disable it. If you have a couple of Output choices to decide on (like Built In or your audio interface) it's just as easy to just switch between inputs and outputs in Audio Midi Setup. Anyway, good stuff IMHO. BTW, I remembered that the last time I was using it was to do some sound design stuff in the Unreal video game engine.

    Sounds like you've found the distortion you want so I'm with you Dusty. You could spend days trying to find a plugin setting to do something similar but by then, the inspiration goes poof. So, you just need to make using it as easy as possible. Is Soundflower working for you?

    Yup. I'm embarrassed to say that I've been trying to remember what I was using it for but for the life of me,.. Whatever it was, I've had to install it a few times for some kind of audio workaround?

    Post what you're watching

    I've been enjoying the hell out of The Crown on Netflix. I've never been the sort of person interested in the lives of the rich and famous but this series (so far, just finished season 1) is so lavish and extravagant that it's almost as if David Lean came back to make a "high end tv show". Wonderful scenery, sets, costumes and acting.

    The sound of those older (2011) F1 cars makes my heart go pitter patter! Thanks!

    What are you reading now?

    Sounds like something I might have to pick up! I was lucky enough to have seen Hendrix perform that at the Atlanta Pop Festival on July 4 1970.

    Wow Mikey! A great example of something we've evolved the taste clean out of.

    Happy Birthday, Grahame!

    Happy Birthday G Man! And I'm shocked that anyone would expect that steeping a tea bag for 30 seconds would be okay!

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Yup. I was the guest of Santa Clara County for 10 days (IIRC). Ohio or California, the cuisine seems to be pretty consistent even after a couple of decades.

    Never a dull moment Jacob! How would you feel about a nice baloney sandy? Glad you're home.

    RIP Allan Pearlman I couldn't help taking a stroll down memory lane of the early days of synths. First time I saw a picture of an ARP it was a listing in the 1971 Whole Earth Catalog.

    I remembered that you are usually a pc user and it occurred to me that you may not be familiar with the mac keyboard which has volume and screen brightness keys. The F11 key is Decrease volume and F12 is Increase volume. F10 is mute. These keys are shortcuts for the settings in Preferences>Sound in OSX. If they don't work that way, you may need to hold the Fn Key to "Shift" the F keys to their "Special" assignments. You can toggle this in Preferences>Keyboard. For some Apple devices (some Mini's) there used to be a remote that was supplied. It also adjusts the same settings. I have one somewhere that I used once with an old Macbook and you can still find them for under $20. I'm not sure if it works in the current OS though. Here's a link to the keyboard comparisons; http://xahlee.info/kbd/apple_pc_kb_diff.html These guys have one of those remotes for sale; https://www.macofalltrades.com/apple-original-remote-a1156/#tech-specs Let me know if you want to try the remote. I'm sure I could find it and I'd be happy to give it to you once I do.
