Re: Pitch shifting without delay.

Synth string patches have a lot of apparent latency due to the slow attack

Re: Eurovision 2022

A good result. The professional Jury had UK at #1 and Ukraine at ~#4.
Surprised that the Rasmus came quite low down in the ranking.

I was also surprised that there were so many missed connections in the voting.

Re: Why are there so many DC barrel connectors?

Re: Mixer for keyboards into audio interface - recommendations please?

There is another, totally daft and avoidable problem with the mixer. The slide fader is nice, great for controlling the feed to my Tannoys. The problem is it also controls the headphone level! This means you cannot easily kill the speakers and have headphone monitoring. Dave. I think that is quite ...

Re: Bonus tracks… Why?

I like bonus tracks. My favourite, although its not on an album, would be the Human leagues flexi disc, which was free on a magazine. It contained the Human League having a group discussion about what material to put on a free flexi disc. I listen to music off of hard disc and edit albums accoring t...

Re: Gtr Built from 2000 Coloured Pencils

Like coffee beans maybe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inuwP2rnfrY I wonder if that one still has the faint whiff of caffine about it, even after all this time..

Re: Ukrainian Music.

Yeah, Down and Out, he wasn’t really, was he? that was the problem. He could always go back, unlike some.
