Re: What are you listening to now?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UF-40yjQp4 Manfred Mann had the most success with covers during the Earth Band era, but this one was one he wrote. Some nice synth bits, but what might be mistaken for vocoder is talk box guitar from the late Steve Waller. He also did talk box guitar on "Don't Kill ...

Re: Tablehooter MIDI?

Yeah, some of the Casio home line had MIDI, like the MT240. I have no experience with using one as a controller, and I suspect a lot of them have fallen victim to circuit bending over the years. In the mid '90s Yamaha actually made a mini keys controller keyboard called the CBX K1, but I have no ide...

Re: Are polysynth manufacturers condemned to repeat their old fatal mistakes?

Synth makers have somewhat followed the same course as electric guitar makers, in that they've largely moved away from innovation towards making instruments that mimic their glory days, or the glory days of others. Because that's what much of the market wants. Many buyers aren't searching for new so...

Re: Behringer tease with ARP QUADRA

I've always been a fan of the Quadra. Although the only person I know who used it much was Tony Banks in Genesis, and only a few times then. Did it get used by other people? I swear you could briefly see one in the promo video for Tony Carey's "I Won't Be Home Tonight," but the video disappeared fr...

Re: Behringer PPG.......

If Behringer were really cool they'd do a PPG 340/380 clone. Whether there's a working example in 2021 is another question.

The Zoom R8 and Tascam DP series recorders come to mind. They're the current equivalent of the old Boss BRs.

Are they actually putting any effort into duplicating/emulating the characteristic of the original, like its sample rate, DACs, and 8 bit samples?

Re: McCartney II

I love that video. The key player is Ron Mael of Sparks. I like Paul on Bass. They're all homages to someone. I see Buddy Holly too. Some of the others I don't get... I bit of a slap back at Lennon's post-Beatles criticism too; "The Plastic Macs", as I understand it. Hall and oats; I think front st...

Re: McCartney II

"Coming Up" sounds a lot McCartney's take on a Talking Heads style tune. And a couple of the people Paul plays in the video look kind of familiar, like the keyboard player.

Re: French Artist from 70's with similar vibe to BOC?

The Parks Canada commercial music was composed by the late Alain Clavier. Frankly I wonder if he wasn't trying to channel Brian Eno, because it sounds a lot like an outtake from Eno's Music For Films. (I often wondered about the choice of music years ago, because you'd think it would keep some peopl...
