Re: BAN ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS IN EU - VOTE NOW !

Part of the problem of taking anything PETA says as "facts" is that you're usually wrong. If you believe that animal experimentation isn't the single most important part of the development of new medical treatments (besides maybe intelligence of the researchers) then you simply don't know what you'r...

So I guess I'm a little late to the party here but I thought I'd add my own thoughts, despite the lack of any particular point. 1st off, I went and listened to Neb and X-HO's music and it seems really clear who has ears for sonic subtleties and who doesn't. I actually prefer X-HO's stuff in a stylis...

I'm all for a relaxed view of racial issues, I think being able to laugh at things is pretty much always a better way of dealing with it than freaking out. That being said, you can't compare Obama's race to Clinton's love life, that being a choice that Clinton made, and the fact that he cheated refl...

I'll try rogue for sure, I was thinking of trying B&H too just in case. The studio is in chelsea so we're not too far. I used to live here before I moved to Berlin but I never really bought gear here besides craigslist stuff. I would rather not have to send the runner to Brooklyn but if it gets to t...

finding a power supply in Manhattan.

I just came to NYC from Berlin to work on a record, doing electronics and drum machines for a more "rock/pop" oriented band. They were kind enough to buy me a jomox 888 to use on the record, which I picked up in Berlin so I could learn it for a bit before going. The only issue is that I assumed it w...

Maybe this is just way too easy to satisfy you, but if you just mute the strings really high up (past the frets) and strum it fast you can pretty easily replicate a halfway decent hat sound with no digital tricks at all.

ot: finding a nord modular G2 in NYC

Hey, I know this isn't all that live-related, but I want to put it out there. I am going to NYC from Berlin in January to work on a record with a band there. I will be doing mostly drum machines and synth patching. I would like to use my nordG2, but I don't know if I really want to fly with it. The ...

Last time I checked, waiting in line at the airport wasn't considered the "field of battle".

A lot of people ended up being held without trial thanks to the patriot act and a lot of those were innocent.

I once did an interview with ediT for a magazine in NYC and he said that one of the tracks off of "certified air raid material" was almost sold to Christina Aguilera, but in the end they said it sounded "too much like a Britney Spears" song, which I thought was pretty hilarious.

I have an mbox2 pro, which is the only soundcard I have, and while I don't have any problems, I can't help thinking that there are lots of better products out there if you don't need protools. I did need it when I bought the card, now I haven't touched it in over a year and I wish I had bought somet...

Not for the faint of heart. Try to make it through the whole thing without smashing your computer, it's a challenge.
