Sonic TALK is brought to you by iZotope, check out the upcoming RX3 - amazing tools for working with audio iZotope.com/rx3

First up, we are in HD! Or what they call HD ready anyhow, all our panelists are coming in on separate Skype machines and I'm on HD video for super quality.
We discuss - the beautiful new Avid S6 control, but it'll cost ya. Then the news of Moog discontinuing the Little Phatty - whats a classic? The Puc Wirelss MIDI and the Analogue Solutions Telemark V2 and finally, a shirt startup sequence from a 737 airliner gets us thinking.

The HD works really great in YouTube. One caveat being that the lip sync is out. In other news: For a link between flight decks and synths, look no further than the Silver Apples album cover 'Contact'. Great story behind that one as well.

Yeah, need to reset the system delay to compensate, will sort that for next time, amongst a few other things.

FANTASTIC video quality! I can almost see the branding on Dave's headphones. :)

>> I don't see that latency should be a problem given the speed of wi-fi and Bluetooth

Unfortunately latency and bandwidth are very different things: http://stuartcheshire.org/rants/Latency.html

One of my favourite episodes and one of those which got me finally hooked on Sonic TALK:

246 - Grumpy Old Synthesists (ugliest synths, biggest keyboard rig)

Love myself a good synthtalk, plus it's a double-Dave-week. ;-)

Hi Guys,

My favourite Sonic TALK episode, and God only knows which one it was, featured Mark Tinley describing his wife-to-be's appreciation of his Akai S900 (S1000?) data entry wheel dexterity.

Second favourite episode was of coarse Mark throwing an S1000 out the window. I've been wondering if the same sampler was present at both events for some time now!

Regards, JPS

There have been so many great SonicTalk segments over the years, but if I had to single one out, it would probably have to be in episode 217 when Gaz writes and records a song on the spot in 5 minutes. It was such a fantastic slice of frenetic creativity.

I really love the look on Nick's face in the very beginning of every show - before the intro. On the one hand it's making me very happy, because I know the show will start in a minute; on the other hand the tension on Nick's face is a great intro into a real, live, full-of-suprises show :)

My favourite episode featured Mark Tinley telling a story of impressing the girls by having a speaker in (up?) his trouwers.

A few episodes later lots of Sonic Talk soundbites got remixed and it prominently featured Mark's trouser speaker quote.

The HD looks great, it makes the podcast even more enjoyable. I would love to see a sub phatty or voyager or even a prophet made with military grade hardware.

Regarding the blue tooth midi, does Novation make a blue tooth keyboard controller already? For other gear I would think a dongle design would be better than a device that requires a cable...

So hard to pick a favorite sonic talk segment.

I think one of my favorite ones is sonic talk number 177 when you were talking about the drum gloves and Dave Spears talked about wanting to walk up and punch any drummer wearing gloves. That got me laughing out loud.
