started a really new project (i'm talking 2011) that is an e-mail correspondence between me (Dallas) and a friend (HoneyPeters, Chicago). it doesn't fall neatly into the techno/electro/italo/house/disco spectrum that is generally discussed on this forum, but then again it doesn't really fall neatly anywhere.

anyway, here are a few of the tracks. feedback is of course welcome

This seems to be an incredibly difficult task. There are so many files associated with Logic that when I attempt to uninstall it in order to install version 8, I get a message saying that a newer version exists on the computer. I've gone to different forums and web sites to figure out how to do it, but I want to know if any of you have had to go through this terrible, terrible process.

Any help would be appreciated.

how many of these artists are the same person or people under different names?

always thought houston should be a techno city, with its obvious space-y connotations.

i totally agree with your sentiments about houston

Tommy Blackburn (TommyBoy) of arawa.fm was asked to compile a selection of tracks from electronic aritists/bands/musicians/etc. from Texas - specifically Austin, Houston and Dallas (hence the triangle). He then took the tracks and combined them into one 1 hour and 53 minute mix. IT'S HOT.

Of particular note are unreleased tracks by E.R.P., R9, Submersible Machines and betdat.

You would think guys who build synthesizer-sequencers out of briefcases and jewelry boxes and use old circuit-bent toy keyboards to do their live PA set would just be another one of those novelty acts that focus more on the performance than the music, but these guys make some pretty jackin' acid and techno. They also use some real gear too btw, like a x0x box and a modded 606 with an 808 snare and kick. Check it out:

Another tip; you can do what pro server admins do.

*Buy laptop.
*Make sure it has warranty.
*Realise that things typically break either through extended wear or because of manufacturing issues (most issues with engines also arise right after re-tuning them).
*Write a script (or download some testing suite) to have it run at 100% usage for 24 hours or so. One of the things this will catch is improper mounting of the heatsink.
*Realise that you are doing everything you can to make the thing catch fire during normal usage so don't walk off.
*If it catches fire take it back.

Assuming you don't burn down your house it's far better to have the CPU blow in the first 24 hours than it is to have it slowly wear, then break right after the warranty runs out.

not sure if the best thing to do is immediately put so many miles on it the second you get it? i guess it doesn't hurt so bad

tried copying part to an RS track that the transpose function had worked on with another synth, to no avail. any more ideas? fuck, why don't i just call you?

I am using an RS7000 to sequence an MS2000, and I'm wanting to use the RS' transpose function to change the key of the MS sequence, but it doesn't affect the sequence at all. It works on other synths, why doesn't the transpose function work with the MS? Is it a global setting on the MS?

wow...that rock thing is incredible!!!!

thanks!!

mks50 with the pg300...traded it for my very incomplete Ludwig drum kit. the guy's band was having practice when we made the trade, and they called it a "syphillisizer". maybe it means i get more ass than them because i play synthesizers...

maybe it's a dumb question and I could find out with more internet research, but I just can't seem to figure it out. anybody know?

That reminds me how is your Dsi evolver?

man, you did not play with it enough. there is no reason to sell that machine, it's incredible and dynamic (unless, of course, you were strapped for cash).
