Phew, this one turned out ok after I sat down to record this weeks show, I realized I had no power supply or batteries to run the trusty Zoom H4 on which I record all the shows. A quick dash to the local shop rectified that, but it threw my routine - however, the participants ensured that it was another bumper show. I was joined this week by Rich Hilton - Nile Rodgers' studio dude, also John Musgrave - who uses the show to take a break from his constant flow of work remixing. Dave Spiers from GForce Software - makers of the Oddity, M-Tron, Minimonsta, and impOscar amongst other fine musical instrument plugins, PJ Tracy composer and studio owner from Minniapolis, US and Mark Tinley from camp D***n D***n - oh and a circuit bent Furby who sings for us.
We meander through a number of topics this week, including: Credit Card MIDI control, the Berrtill plug-in modeled on circuit bent toys, wiggly worms make sound, IK Multimedias Hendrix Collection and other emulations, studio tomfoolery and Peter Gabriels We7 music download launch which brings us into a wider discussion on the relationship between advertising and music.
