Browsing the General forum is like swimming in a pool of shit with diamonds randomly spread in it.

Sometimes you can find fantastic topics and great contributors, but usually you encounter trollfaics. Still, that place rocks.

But nevertheless, Audio Forum is closer to my heart, because you know, I think we have a much tightly knitted community than General. I think one of the reasons is because the newbies and so called "outsiders" start their BBS travels in there, rather than in the good ol' Audio forum.

Lol, the Alpha Juno is pretty affordable dude. Last time I checked they were still going for 200 - 300.
Yeah, plus I feel like the 303 had a much larger impact on electronic music in general than the Alpha Juno did. Sure, the Juno did some cool stuff with rave music, but the 303 was behind acid house, acid techno, acid fucking anything as well as pretty much any genre that dares to call itself hardcore. Even stuff that isn't hard as hell can use it. Listening to some old Vinylgroover records (RAAAAIN ON MEEEEEEEEEE), it wouldn't have been near as energetic or interesting without ye olde Roland TB-303.

They both have their merits, but the 303 is the unanimous champion. The Alpha Juno was the first sub-$1000 analog poly (if my memory serves me correctly), and like the 303, it had fairly average specs on paper, but a gorgeous sound that belies it's stats.

However, the 303 came much earlier, was easily attained by poor musicians, and had the kookiest little sequencer that spat out dance riffs just by looking at it.

I would love an original 303, but I cannot justify the price for such a one trick pony (which is not a problem at all, I have many one trick ponies :3). I will eventually settle for an xoxbox, or whichever clone is being produced at the time when I decide to spring for it.

Why is it so much damn fun to right, while trying to be dissonant and melodic at the same time? I think i'm just having a bit of crossover from practicing the bass to Soul/Blues/Funk songs. I'm actually going to be performing live in front of peoples, and (as strange as this may sound) with my mom's band.

Soul Food
"Jefferson state" is an alright song, but i would suggest starting at "What Ya Gonna Do?" an go from there. :3

Compliment or Insult

I'm never sure how to take these kinds of comments, but I just got a review on one of the covers (See sig) I did saying "I'm always curious on the aspect of whether or not that's actually you playing guitar/bass."

Should I take that as a compliment? I mean, usually when someone says something like that, it's because something is good and they question the legit nature of it... Or they could just be saying I suck at guitar and they refuse to believe I played it.

Either way, they liked the cover, so I chose to take it as a compliment... and offered to take pictures of the instruments I used to play the parts if need be... And if worse comes to worse, I can always put up a youtube video of me playing it.

That one's a little hard to figure out. Heck if you are worried about it (not saying that you are) You could always PM the person to get a clarification. But that's only if you are to concerned.

Nah, I'm not overly concerned about it really, it just racks my brain every time someone makes a comment like that, I'm never sure how I should take it. Not that I would care even if it was meant as a malicious statement, if they don't believe me, they don't believe me, life goes on.

Now, speaking of jamming with people you wouldn't normally think you'd jam with... I have to be up in 6 hours to go jam, so I'm heading to bed.

Yeah, I've had a very positive experience with Phoscyon (although I didn't like the 1.8 update that completely changed the GUI and altered the sound).

I guess one of the cool-ish parts of a real 303 is that it's apparently a huge pain in the ass to program ANYTHING into it. I remember hearing that the guys who did Acid Trax just "turned it on and it had this pattern in there and all we did was tweak the knobs."

For someone like me who has no outboard production gear (unless you consider a vinyl DJ setup to be production gear), anything is cool :)

Yea I've heard they were a pain in the ass, I've been lurking around 3si.org and they've been really helpful and have a whole bunch of useful information. I got mine for $3500 and it has 77k miles. It was a drug dealers car and his niece was driving it, then he got arrested. She left her sketchbook in the car too, she was a furry.

I quite enjoy ReBirth, and the various emulations I have on my iPhone, but I have recently developed this disgusting habit of collecting every boutique synth that gets released, as they are usually tiny and on the "cheap" side. Whenever I look over at my synth collection, there is always an ominous hole where I reckon an xoxbox should be residing,

Honestly, I don't really need one, as most/all of my music doesn't call for a 303 type sound, but I guess I just *want* one :P

I like to think of my studio as an inspiring environment, even if I don't use much of my hardware. It's cool to be able to plug shit in and just have a bit of a jam. However, I'm severely lacking in the sequencer and 303 department, and to me, it seems like an xoxbox would fulfill both of those needs/wants, and more importantly, rescue me from my OCD synth collecting nature (for a while >__>)

I think with most animals it helps to hit them at the base of the skull, obliterating the brain stem. I'm guessing that there was still a fair portion of the brain left intact, which would have been discharging all it's energy into the spinal column. I'm no biologist, so really this is just an educated guess.

I once saw my stepdad gut a fish on the beach so expertly, that when he threw the intact and exposed organs back into the sea, they were still functioning. As a small child it was fairly confronting, watching these throbbing, pulsating guts being chucked back into the ocean to die, but now I find it mildly curious.

I'm still a massive soft-cock when it comes to animals, which sucks, because it just proves how far removed from reality most people are. I think kids need to know where their food comes from, and I think being taught how to use a tool or weapon to catch an animal is something that all children should experience until they are competent at it.

Nah, we just need people to pull their head from what ever ass it is in, and realize sex isn't as great as people want it to be. Yes there are some who resort to other holes to fuck other than the pussy, but those aren't and have never meant to be sex organs, that's why i feel sorry for gay men since they aren't built to have sex in a way that doesn't have extra possibility for disease.

Also, somehow we need to make it so that you have to get a license to bare children. If you don't pass the age, and test requirements you get a few choices, tube tying/vasectomy, birth control, abstinence. And if you have a child while in that period of time (unless proven raped) you lose your right to bare children and both parties have there respective procedures. Dicatorish? yes, because nothing's going to happen with scary words anymore.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but this is typical when killing animals. I know from experience that after beheading a chicken, the body will flap and flutter around a lot like it's trying to escape. It's not still alive, it's just a product of the rush of nerve activity when the nerves realize there's no brain to report to, or something like that.

With all other things being equal, the risks of contracting a sexually transmitted disease are the same whether you're straight or gay. If you are not discerning when it comes to choosing sexual partners, and you don't take the necessary steps to ensuring your manhood remains disease-free (ie, wear a fucking condom), then you can just as easily catch genital warts or the clap from some dirty bitch, as you can catch hepatitis or HIV from having unprotected bum fun with another dude.

There's no such thing as an exclusively gay or straight STI. There are most definitely certain trends, but this doesn't even matter if you think with your head, and not with your dick.

STI's were probably a great form of population control before modern medicine went and fucked up the natural balance. Syphillis used to be deadly. Now all you have to do is go to the clinic. Same goes for basically every other disease known to man. Cancer, hemophilia/anemia, meningitis, pneumonia, the flu, asthma, broken bones, heart attacks/strokes, any number of mortal wounds, and a plethora of genetic abnormalities would have absolutely killed the fuck out of you. It was survival of the fittest. The way nature intended it. Fuck, I'd have been dead by the age of 8 if it weren't for ventolin. Killed by a couple of innocuous grass seeds.

But we've removed ourselves from the natural order. Our life expectancy has shot right up. We can and do keep every drooling retard and demented old codger alive for as long as we possibly can. If you gave birth to a flipper baby back in the day, you'd have thrown it off a cliff. But now, we have an aging and completely incapable population, that is increasing at an exponential (or logarithmic?) rate. The resources in our earth are finite. We've got fuck all left. And we need to somehow divvy up our pathetic cache of resources amongst this massively increasing collective lump of stupid meat that doesn't even appreciate it in the first place. In fact, we want more. All the time.

The only way to fix it is to kill every single person that has even a tenuous connection with medicine. When people start dying naturally again, that's when equilibrium will be re-established.

This isn't something that I want, because I will surely die if I don't have access to certain medications. But fuck, it's definitely something that I believe is right. Sorry if I've caused any offense, but I think deep down, most of us know it's the truth.
