SONIC TALK 068 Rain, rain, rain here in the UK as we drizzle towards Christmas with alarming speed. That year-end funnel effect is starting to take hold, but that doesn't stop me from sitting down with a nice cup of tea and enjoying the company of: Mark Tinley - sound artist extraordinaire and long time technical boffin for Nick Rhodes, Rich Hilton from camp Chic, with his recently redesigned workroom (photos on myspace), Noneric - main man over at MusoTalk.de - the ONLY place for your German language pod/vodcast needs, and finally Dave Spiers from GFORCE Software - who's recent Virtual String Machine release is taking the pundits by storm.
This week we briefly skim over the Apple Pro Audio tour in Berlin, Crave Top 10 Terrible Gadgets, 303 Orchestra and 303s in general, Michael Jackson's Thriller is 25 years old, Quincy's swively chair, waiting for tape to rewind, Peter Grenader's Secret Life of Capacitors at Analog Live, Akai and the Top Five Samplers number 1 spot and Workspace and Environment at AudioTrash.
