Yes, lots of fun.
Just submitted a (fiddled with) recording of frequency mangling from about 10 years ago using just the E6400, to a comp.
Will post around here somewhere if its accepted..... or not... :)
I'm more impressed with my menu diving recall and muscle memory of workflow using it.
(early onset alzheimer's hasn't got me yet!)
Bought it around 1996.
Don't really use it much these days.

Currently collecting Ozen/Remco voice boxes..

I had one of these in the early 90's that had this maniacal clown laugh on it. I must have bught it at a thrift store in Chicago and used it in some of my early recordings. I don't know what happened to the one I had but I'm on a quest to find another one. So far I have two.. one that is woody woodpecker laughing and another one that is currently non functional. Anyway the cool thing about this is that they have a tiny record in them!!!



I'm not sure but I seem to recall reading about the origin of the creepy clown laugh.. something along the lines of it being a recording of a famous clown.

Here's some early talking doll nightmare fuel

Why are clowns scary?

you have one of the "Classics" yet?
gut a broken one
they should be sort of plentiful on ebay
nevermind even the non talkies are getting pricey
there are three versions
the original pull string talky thingy would go high speed dysfunctional on them
broke it in under a month because had become "house party favorite"

No.. once I get the creepy clown laugh I'm looking for I'll probably stop.. I don't really want the dolls either just their voice boxes. I bought one on ebay and told the seller to just send me the voice box and they can throw away the doll or whatever. The nice thing about the Remco's is that they seem to be designed to make it easy to change out the record. The one that I have that is currently non function actually has a two sided record in it.. don't know yet if it's the same audio on both sides or what.

Eye found the old Nubus card and breakoutbox for rebuilding Radius VideoVision Broadcast System
not that need it for video anymore yet figure may as well use the extra audio/io
have all the drivers and software on active working SCSI hard drives

Set the Wayback machine for the mid 1990’s and read this! Radius VideoVision Telecast SP ™ Nubus running Radius Edit™ oN a Apple 7100/80 with a FWB SCSI Jackhammer™, Blue ICE™ and Sonnet Crescendo™ CPU accelerator cards.
Image

Within the Radius Telecast setup, you would be able to edit your video projects right on the desktop with professional results! Gone were the days of trying to cut your film with white, cotton Mickey Mouse gloves on a Steenbeck® flatbed editor and splicing it together with Scotch or splicing tape or, paying exuberant cost for your negative and answer print of you’re film!
Image

A VideoVision Telecast was a professional video editing, production station in a box as long as you already had an Apple 7100/80 (later the Apple 9600/350 series machine with PCI-Bus architecture) or, Radius 81/110 (Mac clone) with plenty of RAM, an FWB Jackhammer SCSI card and a couple of StudioArrays for storage. The software included with the Telecast was Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects (Adobe just acquired AE from CoSA at the time), VideoFusion and my favorite editing tool of choice even over Media Composer, Radius Edit! You would then just connect a Sony Betcam SP or S-Video deck to the dedicated computer and you’re off to spin some serious video sorcery!
Image
Image

Reflecting on this, I remember that I was one of the more popular filmmakers on my block simply because I owned (I now own two) a Radius VideoVison SP Telecast ™ system. Everybody that came to me was some sort of budding filmmaker, crawling out of the woodwork, just itching to get their movie projects on to and edited on this thing, the fact that you could now edit your film right on the desktop in a stable work environment got me chopping at the bit to be a filmmaker!

Yes, Avid® did get to the market first, in the mid eighties within the desktop environment. Fully integrating their 1000XL, Media Composer® system with an Apple Macintosh® computer but, who could afford the astronomical price tag $70,000.00? Funny that’s the same price that the Red One Dragon™ camera would cost you these days with all the accessories and a decent set of glass!
Image

I don’t think I mentioned that I run my Radius on OS 9, oh yeah! Also, I have the latest and last seed package ever to roll out of Digital Origin for the Telecast before the company went belly-up. If you by chance are still running a Radius VideoVision Telecast™ on a Nubus or PCI based system and need some support to get it up and running on OS 9, I can shoot you my extensions and control panels list as well as my working setup. Also, I have Nubus and PCI drivers for Radius, FWB JackHammer™, SledgeHammer™ products as well.

If you’ve ever been to Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California then, you can fully appreciate this. In the bowels of Fantasy there are many ancient Apple computer systems that run older OS’s and software primarily used for reading older audio, sound and movie files.

What a pain today
forgot my admin password on old system OS9.1 scsi drive
after maybe 20 bombs & restarts hacked the Mac security
hmmm the funny things you remember
been while since needed doing that :P
really that drive should go back in 7600/G3 pci machine
another project another day
video is not booting on that machine so cannibalized
yet pretty sure it is just video ram chip bad or not seated correctly in socket
another day for that sometime
not high priority
wanted all the warez packed on this scsi drive
needed getting past the failed login loop anyway
forgetting admin passwords is always a bitch

somehow ended up over at OS9lives
http://macos9lives.com/
getting some old DigiDesign Mac Gear System Re-Animated
looking for original SampleCell Extensions
became completely sidetracked digging through spools of ancient Warez
found full disk of Max/MSP stuff/projects/extensions/apps
some SF noise scene guy gave me who was professor at Berkley
8hz
all of that needs being sorted/"stuffed" archived for Phreaks over at OS9Lives
thousands of files
started messing with MAX/MSP again and was like fuck this!
always hated that fucking buggy crashy boring interface
reminding myself don't get lost and already make way better sound tools than MAX/MSP
going backwards over extending all because wanted using that machine for systex
dumping realtime audio/midi tracks into box so can bounce them back
PT442 interface A/D D/A are high quality XLR

I think I still have a Blue ICE card laying around for some reason.. totally worthless at this point in time

Late 90's delia's catalogs. I'd like to track down a big stack of them just to flick through while I'm on the shitter.

I've gone down a rabbit hole of drunken nostalgia regarding my love/loathe relationship with the slinky, synthetic "sk8r"-chic fabrics and fashions of the day. All of those awful chunky shoes, baby tees and miniature bun-pigtail haircuts from these catalogs my sister used to get. Every girl needs a slinky dress with a hood and jogger stripes down the sides, don't they?

I have a large collection of DVD's lately I've been ripping just the audio to listen to during my commute. Have found some potential gold for samples along the way.

I've been ripping the audio from some DVD's recently for sample harvesting as well. Putting long tracks of DVD audio into GranuLab sometimes produces interesting sounds.

I've also been trying to come up with a way to rearrange things, such that I have my TV and VHS/DVD/LD players closer to my recording gear/PC, so I can capture VHS/LD/broadcast audio with ease. AFAIK, my TV doesn't have a line out, but I could get serviceable broadcast audio recordings with a microphone nearby.

The next logical step from there is planning for and investing in a quality VHS/LD archival ripping setup! And a PC-to-VHS transfer setup, too!
