Nice to see some hardware headz! I shunned pc sequencing a while back, mainly cos qy700 + Fostex d108 is ROCK SOLID TIGHT FOREVER! None of that cubase drift and days spent as a windows tweaker. But to the OP - I use a Macbeth m3x for bass sounds (and tons of other sound). For any complex wobble/filt...

they'll never be able to enforce it properly... i for one will continue to smoke in clubs even when the ban comes into force... They are doing a pretty good job of enforcing it in Scotland at the moment, where the ban on smoking in public places has been in operation since before summer. There are ...

So, within the current socio-linguistic climate, is it at all appropriate to describe one's favourite dubstep tune as "simply spiffing"

seckle - re: keeping OT threads in main forum becausr they have 'mass appeal'. I cant see how moving them would diminish their appeal, moving them would get the OT section buzzing. There seems a reluctance to post in the OT section, maybe cos the main Dubstep section is busiest, but thats no excuse ...

Shy - sorry, I wasn't saying that radio shows should be moved off topic, I was just saying that all the other junk should be moved to off topic. I'm not sure where radio shows should be, I think it worked quite well where they are (mainly in the dubstep forum) but I think if they were moved into the...

I agree with Conspira. I was looking at the main forum 'Dubstep' yesterday and I was wondering why some of the threads hadn't been moved to Off Topic (Nike/addidas - legal highs etc). I don't know about a separate forum for radio shows, but I do think that anything, anywhere, that is off topic shoul...

Good time for eBay bargains - synths and stuff

I am always on the lookout for hardware synths/effects on eBay (uk site). At the moment there's a lot of stuff going for bargain basement prices, I suppose it's because of the holiday season. I saw a Waldorf MicroQ go for £150, and a Yamaha RY30 went for £45. Both these bits of kit are respected and...

I didn't vote because I don't see that I should have. I think is great that this project is going ahead, but I'm not really involved with it in any way so I reckoned I don't have the right to give you guys my opinion on your logo.

Totally agree. The manager bird just kept waffling on about some e-mail that Lethal B has sent to David Cameron. Big deal, she had the perfect opportunity to flatten this argument but she was a bit like a 'rabbit in the headlights'.

I think there is a limit to just how 'urban' you can get if you went to school at Eton.

I would say it goes further back than even house music. David Mancuso famously dropped weird sound effects (birdsong, thunderstorms, aircraft takeoff) into his sets at the Loft in the late 60s. I read that in a book called "Love Saves the Day" by Tim Laurence, good read but kinda academic.

I had one years ago, I always liked it, pretty easy to use and good filters but I wouldn't pay more than £50 for one these days. Hardware samplers seem very cheap at the moment, even the Akai S5 and 6s are going for between £200 and £300. If you're getting it for a good price is worth having as long...
