This week we equal the legendary Heinz 57 varieties and head off toward our first century mark - well we've still got a bit to go of course, and it will be somewhat slowed down by our week off next week, but nonetheless, the march of time and all that... Yamaha MM6 Competition Winner! - a relief to all of you who have been inquiring about this no doubt, we finally got a winner! So congratulations to Finlands Juho Korhonen - who now has a Mini MO winging it's way to him for his correct answer of 569. My guests are enhanced this week by the return of Noneric - host of Musitalk.de and arch campaigner for Digitalmusiician.net amongst many other things, Rich Hilton from the Chic camp also signs in from Connecticut, as does PJ Tracy musician and composer from Minneapolis, back to our UK contingent with Dave Spiers - from GFORCE Software - he has a warm fuzzy feeling having just sent off his latest (Virtual String Machine) instrument for duplication. Finally, Mark Tinley a freelance sound artist and Duran Duran collaborator completes the team. First we get excited about the new synthesizer from Dave Smith Instruments - the Prophet 08, then Noneric gives us some second-hand but reliable information on the new Logic Pro imminent update, then we're off to the world of quad core laptops, OS upgrades ain't what they used to be, and as Jazz Mutant demo their first mulit-touch PC, how do we feel about using that as an interface?
