    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    I just bought an SP808. It runs on Zip Disks. I think there might be such a thing as *too* retro.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I dunno about this. I mean, there are UK signs flashing past and Edinburgh looks Edinburghesque (after a zombie apocalypse). It's all very slick, modern racing game. But is it that different to 1, 2 or 3? Or any number of other driving games out there? It has the same slightly strange handling, the same open world map with a ticklist of things to do, the same slightly embarrassing cutscenes..... And while it might be diverting with the UK setting, the problem is that I don't drive at 132mph through British roads, so flickering sheep and pubs flashing past don't really ground it a great deal. I mean, it's fine. But it's Forza Horizon again with more roundabouts.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    No. It's some blokes talking over the conference video and offering about as much insight as if they'd let a schnauzer bark all the way through it.

    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    Anyone here tried a Waldorf Blofeld? It's quite old I think (2008?) but must've had firmware updates. I like what I've heard, but I'm wondering if I might as well just go for something more modern.

    A movie watchers blog

    Odd script though - multiple times the wrong word is used in sentences (e.g. complexing instead of perplexing). Glacially slow too. But fine. Nice to have some slow, stately hard scifi.

    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    So I bit the bullet and bought a Strymon Big Sky. Apart from the slightly impenetrable operating system (which I assume might make sense to a guitarist) it has been pretty impressive so far. A couple of the reverb algos (Cloud in particular) make even terrible synths sound like Vangelis and The Midnight had a baby in your earhole. Whether it's worth £400 is another matter - it's certainly not talent in a box and requires good stuff in to get good stuff out, but it is excellent. I do appreciate my Yamaha EMP10 a little more though - a little rackmounted multiFX I've had for years which while isn't quite in the same league, still manages to hold its own.
