360ies


My friend Stuart dropped by today and we had a catch-up. He took a couple of 360 degree shots of the studio and I've put them up here, hoping they will be fully interactive on your browser - is that going to work? I hope so, they looked pretty good on the iPhone - you can move around the room (well, kind of swivel) in real time by moving the phone which is pretty cool

Memory Modules




Here are a couple of videos of the Emu modular I just bought. Its been fixed by Andy Horrell because the very early (1973) digital sequencer wasn't working properly. Its a quirky thing at the best of times, but at least I can explore the possibilities it presents knowing that its working right and I'm not going mad. I actually managed to get hold of the legendary Dave Rossum who invented the Emu Modular and is still making really interesting instruments. He was able to help Andy debug the modules because there don't seem to be any schematics online for these first generation versions. The first video is a simple enough sequence, the second video is the same pattern but messed with using some other voltage processing modules. Its going to be a fun ride
