Fuckin stoked! This could be almost as exciting for fans of the 303 and the 808 as the Juno D was for fans of the Juno 106! :corndance: :corndance: :corndance:

Re: British cuisine is the best in the world

British cuisine was the worst food out of all the countries I've visited (the states redeemed itself with their rib houses) I'm a massive defender of how good British food can be - even without the stuff that we've recently imported from other cultures you've got loads of great cheese, amazing seaf...

You want German / Chinese fusion food.

It tastes nice, but half an hour after you've eaten, you're still hungry FOR POWER!

Re: British cuisine is the best in the world

It's pretty much impossible to say that French Food is better than British Food or Mexican food's better than Indian food or whatever is always going to be bollocks anyway, just because there's so much difference of quality within each one. The Fat Duck at Bray is better than an alright French brass...

Re: SNH COOKING THREAD

I've made ketchup a few times, whilst it's easy to make a tomatoey sauce don't expect it to taste like a bottle of heinz. And that's the killer - my mouth just doesn't accept red sauces that don't taste like Heinz. Does not compute. http://theburntpot.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/sriracha-sauce.jpg

Re: Ninjas that know about beer

I think Brewdog make some great beers, Punk and Hardcore IPA, Dead Pony Club are all excellent, Tokyo was pricey but interesting and it got them press. They are arrogant and I guess that rubs people up the wrong way, but I don't get the hate. I don't mind them being arrogant or gimmicky or whatever...

Re: Ninjas that know about beer

Euston Tap and Craft Beer Co are good, as are the Southampton Arms at Gospel Oak and the Rake at London Bridge. People who actually live in London will be able to come up with some more bleeding edge options as well. Dunno about bottle shops down in the smoke apart from Utobeer on Borough Market. O...

Re: Ninjas that know about beer

Didn't know about this, but having done a bit of research it looks like Brewdog have secured excloose UK importing and distribution rights for Mikkeller's stuff. There seems to be a bit of debate as to whether this has resulted in prices going up, the range of stuff available changing or what. Artic...

Re: Ninjas that know about beer

We tried Mikkeller 1000 IBU round at Slothrop Towers the other night.

It was good. Gimmicky for sure, but still tasty. Very hoppy, as you'd expect, but not a million miles from more mainstream stuff like Oakham Green Devil IPA or Stone Ruination.

Re: $350 for some hardware that just does kick drums?

A lot of ignorance going on up in this. Good to see the next gen of dsf is exactly what I'd expect. Beyond the studio a drum module like this has tons of live applications. TBF it's also about the difference between people who mostly use software, for whom 200 quid would buy you two top-of-the-rang...

Re: Coding DSP?

Making them in to VST plugins is a whole other story... Does SynthEdit still have a module SDK? If so, that would seem like an useful place to start - you can pretty much write blobs of pure DSP code and then use SynthEdit to wire them together and stick a user interface on, which seems like a pret...

Re: Ninjas that know about beer

UK people who like saisons - check out Poppyland's stuff if you see it anywhere: http://www.poppylandbeer.com/ Not cheap, but very nice and quite unusual for a UK brewer. Their dry-hopped saisons are excellent, and the other stuff I've had from them has been good too. In other news, I'm off tonight ...

well yeah but also orchestras sound pretty damn good live w/ no mics or any of that which is surely the point- not whether they sound good on cd or not This. I can imagine how recording an orchestra well would be a difficult and skilled job, but in reply to the original question about how an orches...

Re: MP3 is a continuation of Dubplate culture

It looks like you just said that it's an extension of dubplate culture because it attacks dubplate culture? I think basically he's saying that playing out mp3s of new stuff continues some fundamental thread of dubplate culture but changes quite a lot of stuff in the process. The thread being the ve...
