SONIC TALK 101 - After last weeks Kaotic (geddit?) events - for which I'd like to thank all of you who bunked off work to join us live - we're going to do this again next week and possibly for every week btw, we head back to more ahem, sober territory. I'm joined by Rich Hilton from Chic and the Nile Rodgers Crib studio, Mark Tinley - sound artist and generally top bloke, and Dave Spiers from GForce Software, makers of fine musical instruments. As this is episode 101, we indulge our grumpier sides and talk about things that really annoy us in the studio world, but not before we marvel at Matt Mahaffey's amazing rendition of classic AC/DC track Back in Black on drums and Omnichord, then we discuss the recently delayed release of the Linn Drum II and the availability of Dave Smiths new Mopho desktop synthesizer. Then we discover who are panel would like to meet or work with alive or dead - which was one of the topics we didn't get around to last week (no surprise!). Remember... Do Call Us We’ve set up a Skype account for people to leave comments (which may be played on subsequent episodes) or requests to be considered for a part on the show.

Great stuff, as usual very entertaining! That playing two instruments and singing reminded me of that amazing multi-instrumentalist who did a similar thing that you talked about a few podcasts ago, he did that song 'Heart of glass' or something. Really impressive to see such feats!

I'd bet the podcast crew would be interested in Mahaffey's album (as the band known as Self) called Gizmodgery, which was made with toys and other gadgets, and sounds great - very musical. Far from gimmick-ness, in fact. http://www.amazon.com/Gizmodgery-Self/dp/B00004XSKY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1223085516&sr=8-2

The Def Leppard Hysteria Classic Albums dvd gives a great view into the world of working with Mutt Lange. Also recordproduction.com has a great series of streaming videos - one of which features Tony Platt talking about working on Back in Black.

Excellent show! That Dave Smith Mopho ironically looks awesome, although physically it looks pretty ghastly! It seems a bit self deprecating to trivialize their own very serious machines by making them look like a scruffy novelty. Obviously this kind of design is referencing a period of retro that I'm not familiar with! And yeah - what's the deal with The Keyboard Wizard? I think he deserves a spot on your podcast, if you can get hold of him!
