Replicas [cover] by Failed Muso

YouTube via FailedMuso
"A fairly simple and short cover of "Replicas" by Tubeway Army/Gary Numan. Based more on his live version than the album track. Everything programmed on Reason by me with the lead line, also from Reason, played live on my Akai MPK49 (you have no idea how many takes it took, mainly because I am shit at playing live !)

Tiptop Audio Distributes Through Schneider's Buero

via Tiptop Audio:
"It has been a while, but we have some exciting news! We officially have distribution in Germany through Schneider's Buero! As you already know we have one of the absolutely best distributors here in the states, the amazing Analogue Haven but we really felt that we were leaving our European counterparts out of the loop!

PlanB Model 17 Triple Event Timer gearporn

YouTube via dkimcg
"More experimentation with the triple event timer. Turns out it's really really nice for making little tribal sounding resonant drum patterns when used with the Model 13 Dual Timbral Gate. You can really hear the vactrols here since the gates are literally just open or closed with a pulse. That resonant almost membrane type sound is the slowness of the vactrols. Sweet huh? So in this patch the Model 10 was free to do other stuff, but I think it was just cycling back into the control processor for the second timing on the right side. Ah, that loudness in levels must have been feedback. Sorry about the levels being way too loud at parts, I think the voltages got too high too. I need a voltmeter in the rack...
