We have a new guest! P.J. Tracy is an accomplished composer and studio owner from Minneapolis in the US, and joins us for the first time this week. He is accompanied by, Dave Spiers from GForce Software - makers of the VSM, Minimonsta, Oddity, M-Tron and more, we also have John Musgrave and experienced producer/engineer with a penchant for all things high-tech, Dave Robinson from Pro Sound News Europe - a magazine that covers pro-audio installation and broadcast and last but not least, Mark Tinley - Duran Duran's man for some years - programmer, engineer, producer and sound artist.
This week talk turns to Rob Papen's Predator 3 soft-synth, next week's massive Musik Messe show in Frankfurt, Portishead's new album, rumours of Apple's new 8-core systems, David Byrnes' dance thievery (and opinions on the digital revolution), old skool portable vinyl players, a capella attack on the Paris subway, King Tubby's bass bin and poor BT (Brian Transeau) has his studio robbed again. Last up, we find a couple of classic flounce-outs on Youtube - phew no wonder it's a bumper show at almost 50 minutes...
