Re: Dictaphone recommendations

Continuing from there, mic placement (beyond sheer proximity) is practically a non-issue with something like a dictaphone (you have to be close enough to a source to get a "reasonable" recording of it without it being surrounded in hiss and all the other dynamically compressed sounds happening aroun...

Re: Dictaphone recommendations

Not to be rude, but it's in the name: DICTAphone. They are, by design, meant to be bare-bones devices suited to the most basic purpose of recording dictation. A lot of cheap, hand-held digital recorders are the same, with shockingly similar (noisy, lo-fi, dynamically compressed) results. Handheld ta...

Re: Post expensive gear you want to buy

For years, I wanted a Studio Electronics MidiMoog, but they are exceedingly rare and go for Moby money, which is like a million dollars, relative to what I'm worth.

I would not hate a fully-loaded Yamaha TX816 either, but I realize I wouldn't even be able to put it to good use.

Re: Darren Wyngarde (Filthy Turd) status?

I must say, it's always been a little bit terrifying being a part of the workin' world, all things considered. But I feel somewhat reassured, given that employers "who care" cannot even manage to spell my first name correctly on my nametag.

Re: Your recent purchases:

The last gear I bought was a Korg AG-10, many years after instantly frying the first one I bought by mistakenly using an incorrect adapter with it. MY3dG7YG-nE I don't know why I felt I needed this. I don't even remember what it was that initially attracted me to it (perhaps it was simply the "beige...

Re: noise on a budget

Well, duh. I am trying to get you to think outside of that particular rock and roll box. Believe me, I love gear. I have more than too much, and still not enough. But I am trying to help you as a budget-minded beginner. I am trying to SAVE YOU MONEY! I'm trying to say, if you don't have loads of mon...

Re: noise on a budget

Are you on a personal computer? If you don't own one, buy one of those. Pirate everything. A lot of software is free, even. Download Audacity and use the "Import Raw" function to import non-audio files as RAW audio data. FREE NOISE. Here's something I just crapped out in literally ~2 minutes (minus ...

Re: Current fleeting interests

The remarkable similarities between male and female genitalia. Wondering where "an extremely large clitoris" ends and "technically intersex" begins.

Re: now playing

Roky Erickson died. What a punch in the gut. 89M8wJRtccw I listened to this song a bunch of times the last time I thought robotripping would be a good idea (it wasn't). I was on a really big Roky "kick" this past winter and listened to him every day for a week or two. While the 13th Floor Elevators ...

Re: Noise project name generator comp

WOW! That Oozing Wound band is sucky and boring.

It's actually a bit depressing to realize that we both reheat our Chinese takeout leftovers in exactly the same manner.

Re: non-Noise influences (music or otherwise)

A lot of "classic" rock: Blue Oyster Cult, T. Rex (later era in particular, believe it or not), Pavlov's Dog and some others especially. The moon (up in the sky). the gothically sublime dread of nature, night, wilderness and celestial space, without wallowing in "KVLT" contrivances. Outer Gods. Mult...
