  1. If you get a faithful hardware clone, you WILL get something that can do "that 303 sound" and nothing else. If that's not enough for you, go with something else. The Revolution appears to have DSP effects built in, so already that's beyond the 303. I have a x0xb0x and it almost gets the 303 sound, but it's not perfect. A little too sterile sounding at certain settings, but still I like it, and I like the limitations. If you want an acid sound that will sit in a dense mix like they're often used in psy, then any 303 software will get you there. If you want an upfront 303 sound like in acid techno, a good hardware clone is the better way to go. I used to use ABL2, and it had more capability than the x0xb0x, but I personally would never go back. I like the knobs and the imperfections.

    What are you doing right now?

    I’ve been working with some people who are visiting from a customer, and chatting about random stuff when we’re not talking about work. Someone brought up music and we had to do the obligatory “what music do you listen to” thing. When I mentioned psytrance of course the first response was “...what trance?” And the second response was “oh I think I know what that is. Like Deadmau5 right?” ..... sigh “...no, not really” And then today the same guy tried again by mentioning Tiesto. :|

    Childhood immunisation

    I think the concern over vaccine quality should be separated from the basic argument for vaccination. Obviously such unintended consequences are bad, but (not knowing any numbers off the top of my head), I'd be surprised if the percentage was very high.

    Childhood immunisation

    Anti-vaccine attitudes are stupid, plain and simple.

    Checking In Thread

    I’m here. I’m kind of despondent lately. Funny, because things are generally better than they’ve ever been for me, on the surface, but it sucks in subtle ways. It must be a couple years since I checked out any new psy. Part of that is because I got myself a girlfriend who is in the metal scene, so I tend to hear more metal these days. I’m trying to design some synth modules but I have little time. Haven’t worked on any new music in so long. When I do I don’t get very far and I just get discouraged. And, you know...living in the circus that is the United States these days is disheartening in itself.
  6. I’m sure someone out there would be happy, for the right price, to make music to your specifications. But I don’t think you would be happy with the results. It would sound like a psytrance version of manufactured pop music, because that’s how that stuff is made.
  7. On occasion, mostly for when they have songs I don’t have elsewhere. Sometimes if I’m engrossed in an all-day project and want some background music without needing to find a new album every hour, I’ll throw on one of Goa Constrictor’s 4+ hour sets.

    What are you doing right now?

    Taking a break from work. I've been reading way more news lately than I used to because of all the bullshit. I wish it would quiet down so I can go back to reading more entertaining/interesting things on the internet. I'm getting myself into a situation where I have multiple projects going on at the same time, none of which are getting done. My primary one at the moment is a rackmount line mixer. Also on my plate is a keyboard amp and a modulation source for my modular. Plus I've convinced myself to make an electronic puzzle toy for my nephew for his birthday in November. Too many projects. I haven't really been following the recent psy releases. Also I find myself getting tired of some of the ones I've been listening to for years. I think life is catching up with me & interfering with my music passion. I don't know why I just gave you the state of my life. Carry on.

    I think acid-brain was referring to China's suppression of Falun Gong.

    Last movie you saw?

    I agree about Bale as Batman, but everything else in that movie was great!

    What are you doing right now?

    Well yeah...but that's not why I liked it. I just thought the writing and acting were better.

    What are you doing right now?

    I watched Rogue One today. I thought it was way better than Episode 7!

    First Contact books?

    Oh yeah, Contact is great! I've seen the movie & read the book.

    Good TV Series? Any?

    I liked the books but I stopped the first episode 10 minutes in because I thought it was stupid and the characters annoying.

    First Contact books?

    Cool, thanks. It's funny that recently I watched the movie Arrival, and it was pretty much exactly what I wanted when I made this post. Except maybe the super-sentimental parts.
