Out Of The Office Open Thread...

by Chris Randall

After that last epic conversation, I'm busy congratulating myself for having created a blog that, after years of tuning, can have such a high level of completely bullshit-free discourse. The previous post didn't have a single comment deleted (I only have to delete maybe one a month now) nor a single ad spam, nor a single instance of anyone calling anyone else a Nazi, nor a single "LOL +1" jumping smily face. This is a rare thing on the internet, and I'm pleased to have had a role, however minor, in its genesis.

In any event, the missus and I are rolling to Los Angeles today. We're hitting the MOCA tomorrow for the Art In The Streets exhibit, and going to the JPL Open House on Saturday. A little mini-vacation, if you will. I may or may not post, depending on available time and inspiration.

In the meantime, as a conversation starter, I propose this article that Eno wrote for Wired some 12 years ago. I assume, from the context and time frame, the console in question is a Neve Capricorn, one that I have a similar experience with. Anyhow, here's the keys. Don't break anything.

@boobs, thanks for the the soundhack tip... looking forward to trying these. I've been using the Michael Norris stuff for a while with some great results. Following dpirone, has anyone here embraced the Vectorial Volterra Kernels Technology in the Nebula Pro 3 environment in seeking the perfect 'bread and butter' sound shaping?

Am I out of line suggesting that perhaps next time Eno hire an engineer that knows how to operate a Neve Capricorn before agreeing to pay $2000 a day?

I realize that this is kind of beside the point, but it would have solved a serious problem.
