Number 54 - the same as the legendary Studio 54 nightclub in New York, which has no other connection other than Chic and Sister Sledge were often played and seen there. That's about as clever as this link gets - so you can guess that Rich Hilton who is Nile Rogers main studio man and Chic band member joins us, along with Mark Tinley(Duran Duran main man, sound artist and musician) who's in an airport in Inverness en route home - his line is a little lo-fi so please bear with us. Also this week, we're joined by PJ Tracy from Minneapolis US - an accomplished studio musician and composer, Dave Spiers he of GFORCE Software - makers of fine musical soft instruments and finally, the ever busy Jonh Musgrave - producer, musician and engineer. Topics this week include, the recent Summer NAMM show in Austin TX, the demise of analog tape and associated plug-ins aiming to recapture it's glorious past, Ken Macbeth's band of synthesists and celebs, iTunes reach the 3 billion downloads and much more. I'm in a bit of a rush this week, so please bear with me - the show links are rather incomplete... Remember...
