This week we streamed live video - it seems to work and our live viewers went up by double, plus the real-time flash chat is a lot more real-time under 10secs for many, so I think we'll stick with that one.

If you want to watch that in full it is available on USTREAM here, although, be warned its just me with a mic in front of my face for an hour or so...

We also have a first-timer in the form of Joe Zobwik - developer of iPad app ChipTune - which you can see in action on the Korg Monotron review I recently posted. Also online are the highly experienced and well travelled Rich Hilton - studio engineer for Nile Rodger and Chic bandmember,  Dave Spiers - from GForce Software getting ever closer to the release of the impOSCar 2, Mark Tinley too  - sound artist, creative thinker and motor cyclist.

Firstly I have a chat with Joe from Earsmack.com about the iPad app development process, then we move on to this weeks topics - firstly - that dream when you have no trousers on - after a worrying live sound gig this weekend I probe the panel for their own nightmare scenarios. Then the Laurie Anderson Music For Dogs in Sydney Australia, Gary Numan's pitch for 7-UP and finally the Sonic Charge Patternarium.

The switch to Ustream was great; very cool to see you actually in action recording the podcast (and even cooler for those podcasts where you have guests).

I really hate to be a jerk here. I am a long listener and supporter of your podcast but have to say it. Once again, you underrepresented Sonic Charge's µTonic (pronounced Micro Tonic not YouTonic). It is the best sounding VST drum machine not based on samples. It is far more than a glitch machine as you mentioned a while ago. While simpler than Waldorf's Attack drum synth, the sounds are much fatter and easier to program. (and it has a great built-in step sequencer)

I beg you to try out the demo to µTonic. It is one of my favorite VSTs and one of the best kept secrets.

Sorry, I had to get that off my chest. I love your podcast, I look forward every week to it.

BTW, if anybody knows any other good VST synth drum that are not based on samples, let me know.

Loneraver, dont worry your not, I should have looked more closely at the pronunciation. I'm a big fan of SonicCharge and use their Syplant a lot - its a great sounding instrument.

I will take a look at the uTonic again, I think when I looked in the past the Waldorf Attack got my $$

Should I upgrade to Leopard?I'm on a mbp (2.4ghz C2D, 160gig HD, 2Gigs ram)At first I was a ltlite put off by leopard because I primarily use my computer to DJ with ableton live and there were reports of bugs with leopard and AL (and alot of plugins). Now enough of that stuff seems to be worked out so it won't interfere with my work. It also seemed to have alot of stuff I didn't need. I've decided to return to school this summer and I have a few things I need windows for and Bootcamp would come in handy. Also can you run windows games?The only thing I'm concerned with is storing my itunes library, my movies and a few other things because I want to do a full sweep before I install.. I have an ipot with about 110 gigs free and was wondering if and how I could store all these and transfer them back to my machine once leopard is installed.. Could I just burn all these files to DVD's?Is Leopard slower than Tiger? Does it use up more CPU? Because I use my machine to gig with and this would be real bad
