I know some of what he means, but yeah the upshot of it is
that it means we will be getting some bloody great music in
the future, well I hope so

i get 90% of what he's saying, would get the other 10%
without mumbly and accent. would i be able to do what he's
doing, though? probably not

wonder if he will fix the pulsewidth discrepancy between the
upper and lower decks for certain tones, or is it part of
what gives it a weird sound

no I couldn't either, beyond my abilities, where do you find
someone with this particular set of skills, he should be on
the A-Team

I odn't nkow hwat htis topic is about but aphex twin was
already cloned. I took a poop and looked in the toilet and
that was definitely him. Toilets are now a perk of the upper
classes, I'll be pooping in plastic bags and throwing them
in public trash cans soon, but that's what happens in third
world countries I gues.s

very nice project
would have been cooler if they created original circuits and
built a super synth to afx's spec. like an elektron analog
four but with at least 16 voices and loads of inputs and
outputs with a drum section. like an all in one music
production tool.

yeah the best off all his fave synths, like gx1 oscillators,
and filters from another synth etc

personally, i always felt the GX-1 was a bit of a white
elephant. if you asked me, "would you like to have my
fully-tuned GX-1?" my answer would be, "that's super nice of
you, but no thanks." rdj himself said something like, "yeah,
if you want to program a patch, well, it only has one
"custom preset," you have to pop the lid and turn trimpots
with a small screwdriver. all of this sounds like a gigantic
pain in the ass. this is before looking at upkeep, even --
it's a giant, fussy beast. i have a small apartment and no
ability to maintain such a machine. or, rather, i do suppose
i could figure it out, if i quit my job and plowed my
limited funds into some more professional test gear. aphex,
i am sure, has the physical space. no day job, so plenty of
time to take upkeep seriously. money to hire someone if he
gets stuck

pretty much, it's like the CS80, but about ten times as
stupid unless you're rich(ard) and have a fair amount of
experience working on synth hardware

i would eat my words for an EMS synthi 100, however. years
ago, not breathing dave sent me some photos of him 'round
back of jack dangers' synthi 100 with a solering iron, doing
some mods. i was infinitely more jealous of him in that
moment than i ever was of afx's gx-1.

didn't aphex have a synthi 100? didn't he sell it? if so,
he's an idiot

his selling the synthi 100 was rather anecdotal, but there
was a vemia link i clicked on that did make it seem rather
legitimate.

i dunno, i could be missing it. i was never hugely into FM.
the synthi 100 is a subtractive mainframe; perhaps if i were
into FM as much i'd see something i was missing in the gx-1.
but from my current view of the world, the gx-1 is
overpriced, expensive to maintain, and incredibly
user-unfriendly beyond the preset cartridges. perhaps, if i
weren't so halfassed about FM, i'd see it. perhaps it's just
that it's doing everything analog; GX-1 takes the condom off
of DX-1. i dunno. i really don't

i would take an hour with a synthi 100 over a week with a
GX-1. i'm not particularly good at playing multiple
keyboards at once. knobs, though, i seem to scale better.
the patch panel reminds me of those rubber-band/nail grid
toys from kindergarten, and i know i would love it. versus
going round back with a small screwdriver to adjust
resistors. you'd have to know exactly what you were going
for, or it'd be maddening

i've been going on a bit. i'll summarize: i love
subtractive, i'm familiar with FM but not particularly
masterful, why is the GX-1 anything but shit compared to the
synthi 100?

thx
afx fan

i'd actually like to extend that from an hour vs. a week to
a day vs. a week.
it would be a strange fever dream if someone took me up on
this challenge
the right thing to do would be to go with the week/gx-1
first

when the fam was at a node of the now-defunct US chain
"Tweeter," i was, i dunno, 9 or 10. the sales rep smartly
separated me from my parents and sat me down in a demo room
full of all the high-end shit, playing "Jurassic Park" on, i
do believe, fucking laserdisc. they used it as a
sound-system demo -- when the water jiggles in the mud of
the t-rex footprint in the first third of the moment, that's
where they would have been all -- "yeah, sir! you feel that
bass?" but i was just enclosed in a reasonably soundproof
room listening to this loudly, by myself. it was, i have to
say, a particularly great way of first watching jurassic
park.

it seriously fueled an obession that lasted almost two
decades
i got an SGI o2 at a swapfest. they were using o2's as
general desktops, amidst building one of the first render
clusters for a movie
LAZY_TITLE
a couple photos in really says it all -- just an ugly
concrete room full of computers and more computers, we need
more
jurassic park also broke protocol in the sense that pretty
much everything you see was an actual thing. the "i know
this, it's a unix system" moment featured some "3D file
explorer" that was not just some movie shit, but a demo
program that came with the OS. the o2 was one of the few
SGIs that did ps/2, SVGA, instead of whatever the fuck their
k/m standard was and 13w3. i very carefully torrented ISOs
of the decade-old OS trying to get 3D file explorer running

my o2 was apparently a former basic node of MIT's athena
network, with hostname "brave-little-toaster." it had all
sorts of cool software on it, but it all required remote
authentication, so yeah, torrenting the stock OS and demos
and feeding it in via burned CDs to the one SCSI drive it
would commune with, which was clearly a 4GB box drive that
was designed to sit under a macOS 6 SE whatever

when i sold it all off, those SCSI drives -- i had three --
commanded a premium, as whatever chipset they possessed had
the dark magick capable of talking with a lot of fings.
probably would have chatted with old akai just fine
