Re: I just died laughing when I found this

This is nothing, if you really want performance you need solid gold bar stock cooled with liquid helium, and keep muffler bearings well oiled at all times :tu:

Korg Opsix and a pair of Genelecs. If you don't mind my asking, which Genelecs and what are your thoughts on them in comparison to what they're replacing?

Re: (Behringer) Power supply comparison

What a muddled answer. In what world is the Volkswagen Group a small company?

There's the old saying that a Giraffe was a horse designed by a focus group.
:hihi: Nine one.
Reminds me of many nineties automotive designs that stand out as prime design-by-committee examples.

Re: Zip drives, USB sticks. Do you trust them?

I abandoned the expensive and finicky Zip media and drives when (re)writable optical media and drives became cheaper. Optical media longevity is probably a manifold topic unto itself, but my 20 year old backups on CD-R are still readable - seems the drives crap out first! :despair:

Re: Schmidt Eight Voice Analog Synth

Yeah, i was gonna say that DCOs are just quantized VCOs, but in practice i suppose there's a lot more to it than that, especially in a poly. There's been a recent discussion about polyphonic portamento that brings some light to the difference in practice, and how the theory differs from the magic ;)
