If you've been following the series from the start, you'll remember Brian Duffy's one-off Optaphonic Lunaphone at number 19. Well, this episode we have another one-off instrument called quite simply ONE. I’ll leave it to the inventor Mark Limbrick to explain it’s inner workings and give you an all too brief insight into its creation.
There’s also a retrospective peak at Keytars and a demonstration of the Buchla 200 with professor of music Mats Lindström. As usual, lots of weirdness and we haven’t even hit the top 10 yet, so keep watching!

Hi Nick, why aren't you uploading the new videos to your video podcast? You could just add the advertisements to the video stream as you convert it for iPod format. That way you don't loose any advertisement opportunities but make the videos accessible to iPods. BTW, when you get your iPod Touch could you check why your the videos in MP4 streaming format on the website don't work with the iPod Touch browser. Quite often you just see the advertisement clip and then nothing.

hi Nick. Thanks for your reply. I'm actually able to watch the streams on my iPod from the hotel I'm staying in Montreal. Strange. I'll check if this also now works from Finland. It could be that upgrade of the iPod touch firmware to the latest 2.1 just before this trip fixed the problem...
