I second the vote for asus a6n. I have used one for about a year now, and it is by far the best computer I have owned. Rock solid.

free printed live manual for anyone that wants it....

Hi all, So here's my deal. I printed out the entirety of the Live 4.0 manual, put it in a large spiral binder, and tabbed the different sections so that you can easily flip to them without having to thumb through a bunch of pages. It is not beautiful, but it's decent looking, and it has been very he...

It may not have been produced in the last year - but it is new to me. Alio Die sounds like loops of string players all overlapping to create interesting timesignatures .. they sound like an ambient Steve Reich meeting Dead can Dance. I would like to second the vote for Alio Die. I recently discover...

:D Skinny Puppy last fall... Now that was a hot show. Cevin Key was running Logic and I think Live as well. These dudes had a huge impact on electronic music and Reznor as well. I don't get so involved in the the whole "industrial" thing these days, but I was weened on NIN and Skinny Puppy. And I b...

NIN started sucking after spiral anyway. I second this. The Fragile was a limpwristed version of spiral, and this newest piece of shit album sounds like gothic disco house for the most part. Don't get me wrong, I like disco house, just not in the context of Trent's jaded glory. I suppose he is just...

The shape of the room itself. One day I want to have a room built specifically as a project studio, or at least move into a non-square room with fewer nasty modes in the bass frequencies. I have this spike at around 500hz or so that has been following me from apt. to apt. because the rooms tend to b...

ok, I fixed the problem. While I was doing so, I made the snippets 3 and half minutes long instead of 1, and I upped the quality of the mp3s. Sorry for wasting your time if you tried to listen to them when the links were broken, but they are working now, if you still want to check them out. thanks f...

Shameless self-promotion :)

Hey all, After a bunch of delays, my ambient album, "Oubliette," is finally coming out in about a week's time. There is a pre-order going right now where the price is reduced a couple dollars/euros (8 and 6, respectively). Check out my site at http://nm.somrec.com for snippets, and the Foreshadow la...

It is in pdf format for download at this site: http://www.izotope.com/products/audio/ozone/guides.html It is what I read when I wa...

I gotta say, this is by far my favorite one yet. I write post-rock, ambient, and techno depending on my mood, and these kits are fantastic for just about any style. I am particularly impressed with the quality and expression of the Asian kits! Really amazing stuff, guys. I haven't even busted out th...
