SONIC TALK 104 - Another LIVE show under our belts - thanks to all those who joined us in the chat room. We're currently looking to try another streaming service as UStream seems to bonk out with only a few listeners. Suggestions welcome. This week I'm joined by regulars Rich Hilton from Chic and the Nile Rodgers studio, Mark Tinley sound artist and jet setter (Scotland and back before the show), Dave Spiers from GForce Software on the eve (or so) of the release of their M-Tron Pro and also not so regular Dave Robinson editor of Pro Sound News Europe. Best wishes to PJ, who's not feeling too good today. After Dave Spiers tells us about his hearing tests from earlier today, we talk of the iTunes Genius recommendation system and other similar services, then its the great Reason bassline challenge and the panels own favourite b-lines, Nick embarrasses himself with girls singing about synthesizers, then we ponder the 7 music trends whose return must be stopped, which takes us into the world of warbling divas. 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. You can also join us LIVE every Wednesday at 4pm BST at Sonicstate.com/LIVE. You can contact using the Skype handle 'sonictalk' or if you want to use the phone, our number in the US is:

Nick, I can't believe you haven't mentioned this one: http://www.genaudioinc.com/

"4d" sound, if you believe the hype. Actually it sounds pretty darn good to these ears, even if it ain't 100% TRUE 3D

Check it out

No worries....

Re: streaming

A quick google sees:

DimDim.com (good name) WizIQ.com

Both offer a lot more than just streaming too. (Free/open source, which is ALWAYS good)

Just a coupla quickies.... You could have some fun testing them, at least :)

No one mentioned it in their bassline lists (that I noticed at least), but that liquidy bass on Stone Roses' Fools Gold deserves a nod.
