SONIC TALK 078 - It up a little early due to the fact that we're one week before the Musik Messe in Frankfurt Germany (March 12th-15th 2008) but we still have unfinished business from last episode. Amidst a world of circumstantial and technical difficulties, we soldier through with my guests. First up is Noneric from MusoTalk.de and the voice of reason from Berlin, PJ Tracy from Minneapolis, whos so busy he needs another 23hrs a day, lastly Dave Spiers from GForceSoftware.com. Thoughts go out to Mr Rich Hilton who's suffering from a touch of back trouble and Mark Tinley who's eyes are on the mend. This week, we revisit a couple of topics from last week due to some additional correspondence - MIDI 2.0 is on the way and Shane King sends us an Ultravox inspired track to check out. We then move on to the rather amazing Microsoft MySong technology which allows you to sing in a melody then have the computer suggest the supporting chord - and tweak. We ponder why Apple can get away with some of their rather monopolistic behaviour and then we're done. Remember...
