  1. More a man's vision of future synth than a product "yet". Genesis I is a custom synth created by 2BTruman for his live performances on Youtube, Facebook and Periscope. For now you can see and watch his progress at

      I have the Lemur app. Haven't used it for a while but it worked pretty well.

      Emulator is very basic, not even close to what Lemur does. People have been begging Liine to do a Windows version, but no dice. :emo:

      Seems like they would make out pretty good if they did.

  2. :ohyeah: Enjoying Volume 0. Everyone came up with some astonishing tracks and the flow of the compilation is great :listen:

      IDK the exact instance, but that name came out of such irr-logical know control.

      Thank you Charles. Distopian Rumba just about sizes it up :bounce:

      I am disappointed this year. I need to spend some $s and I just don't see any of the killer deals I saw last year.

      I haven't had time to look at anything but it does seem rather stark depending on what you're looking for. Wanker Center didn't send me the usual Black Friday fliers they usually do.

    This premiered in Paris last week at Goethe-Insitut and is now available to view for a short time. The long awaited Kickstarter project of making the full length bio of Tangerine Dream. I was able to put in an uninterrupted hour of viewing this morning. Its 59 minutes long and has some incredible unseen footage and stills of the band from the early days until the present. Most of my old TD buddies have never seen a lot of the sections and interviews from long ago. It opens with footage taken of Edgar's Artificial Head System experiment. The tables are turned if you don't know German you'll have to rely on the footage which is "terrific" subtitles would be helpful but I just wish I knew how to understand and speak German. 

    A longer version of the film is still in the works as well as the Kickstarter campaign. if you want to know more check it out here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tangerine-dream/tangerine-dream-documentary

      This appears like it might be GREAT.  Sadly my rehydrated old computer won't let me watch this.  Fortunately I do have the 6 DVD set of Krautrock Nacht, which contains some ancient TD performances (and a LOT of other 1970's German experimentalists).    Thanks for the heads up, JJ, I'll pass along the news.

      I think the long version will be much better and hopefully feature more of the eras that they kinda rushed through. The focus is centered on the Virgin era i spose for good reason.

      My wife asked me why a band like Tangerine Dream needs a Kickstarter for a documentary?Unless they blew their wad with GAS? I have no info or insider knowledge but it seems even the best of the best never have enough funds or just don't want to spend it. Like King Crimson always seems to be a show string as well.

      It is the production company TAG/TRAUM who are raising the money. IDK what TDs deal is for licensing, but generally a film like this has to be licensed to get access to all the photos and stuff. 

  5. Augmented Reality?  I get it but I'm still wrapping my head around this maybe because I'm not a gamer? Turns out Behringer's soon to be released DeepMind 12 synthesizer is only part of the plan. Perhaps Behringer is going to be the one up on everyone else with a revolution in gear interaction.

      There were some demos of this kind of thing at the CCRMA Openhouse. Its interesting, and still at the early stages but the really exciting thing no one mentioned is the immersive audio that will finally take us beyond stereo.

    2. Jon Johnson

      Jon Johnson

      Thats sounds really interesting and cool. Maybe it will bring audio fidelity back into the realm of being important listeners and players?

      It needs to, Music has fallen behind compared to other forms of entertainment.

      Yeah -- the Cats and Kittens are groooovin' for sure!  Great stuff.  Is Conrad Schnitzler in there somewhere?  Thanks for sharing!

    2. Jon Johnson

      Jon Johnson

      you know I wondered that too because they didn't have a bass player for the first album but Conrad sorta did a bassline at times on it.

      For sure. At times I think it works like that for me. I've lived that minimal sleep cycle for so many years now I'm thinking the Piper's gonna have to get paid at some point. Not in stone that anything bad will happen but everything costs something ;-)

      Just what I'm doing today!  I usually keep cloth covers over everything I'm not currently using too.  Shaking those out now.  Rugs also generally get shaken a lot around here, particularly the Taped ones.IMG_9692.thumb.JPG.4fa53ec0bddbff32c313d1ef2a909bf0.JPG
