Re: The Year Of The Rat

Thank you so much for posting this. It took me back to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - a tale of duty and unrequited love. Deeply, hauntingly beautiful, so much so it gave me goose pimples. Lost count of how many times I played it. Perfect instrumentation so beautifully realised. ( Had to dial the b...

Re: Some Covid-19 Safety Tips

Did wonder about the sandals, Chris, thought it was the sign of a "hippie" youth (minus the dungarees)! ;-) Small world, I signed the Act twice, once when I started work as an electronics apprentice at BAC where they were developing the TSR2 (1964), the second time when I was at the Home Office for ...

Re: Some Covid-19 Safety Tips

Dear Shelly, My heart goes out to you and to Mike for your sad loss. Mike especially must be feeling very low. Losing a parent is bad enough, but somehow no-one expects to lose a daughter. The loss of a child is like a hammer blow. I wish you both the strength to endure through this sad time. I'm su...

Re: Stay in, sign on, opt out - a viral coping stategy

Well, that's nice! [rant] I see that the health secretary, bless his cotton socks, is now about to ask me, as an over 70, to self-isolate potentially for months. How am I supposed to feed myself? Is he going to deliver the food to my door or should I just starve to death? Am I not allowed to go for ...

Re: Trying to decide WHICH DAW . . . .?

My advice to people is to evaluate where you can. Most major DAW vendors provide evaluation versions now. Too true, Derek. What I do, for complete novices, who want to MIDI sequence, is to advise them to start with Anvil Studio. It's a freebie for basic functionality andhas lots of help. The other ...

Re: Any Experienced Reaper Users out there?

As a Reaper tryer way back, then mover back to CbB I can't, I'm afraid, offer any direct help, sorry Chris. (But as A MIDI orchestrator I'm very interested.) I found Kontakt to be unnecessarily complicated to use (IMHO) which was why I never went down that route. Nor did I need all they offered, jus...

By linking Peter Kirn's blog posts you are giving him more attention and higher google ranking, it would be best to make those links not clickable by removing the "https://" part.

Re: MU2000EX Sampling and Memory Card

Well, one of the manuals was the one Chris so helpfully attached. The other(s)? Still hunting! I moved from Germany to the UK since I bought the MU1000, and stuff got packed and I need to hunt it down. Thought I'd found it yesterday, but it was a DVD/R of loads of other stuff. (I did find some other...

Re: Behringer goes on the offensive!

After a bit of research, I suspect that this article in Peter Kirn's "CDM" site had Uli hopping mad. cdm.link/2020/01/best-new-underground-synths-2020/ It appears to criticise a company whose name begins with B for making clones. Then goes on to describe three clones which he sems to accept. Anyway,...

Re: MU2000EX Sampling and Memory Card

Hi keywiz999 and welcome aboard, Yup, as Chris said, I have a couple of MU1000's (MU1k) and, quite correct, there is no English manual for the 1k or the 2k. It's primary functionality is identical to the MU128 with more voices and greater polyphony (as I recall) 256 note as opposed to 128. They were...

Re: Behringer goes on the offensive!

I'll second what you've just written EX5, I don't see any antisemitism in the video, it's meant to be Pinocchio, and Behringer is calling him a "cork sniffer". The person they're criticising probably subscribes to the idea that loudspeaker cables are directional and that a glass jar of pebbles place...
