Aphex Twin interview in Future Music

There's a typically baffling/silly interview with Aphex Twin in this month's Future Music magazine. When asked for a kit list, he says: "Sure. Raveolution 309, the Raven Max, MC-909 limited edition, Quasimidi Van Helden, MAM Freebass 383, Roland DJ-70, E-15, SP-808, Akai S3200, Behringer MX602A and all the Behringer effects that copy other things." When he's asked which software he uses, he says "UPIC by Xenakis puts almost everything else to shame. It's under 1mb and it shits on everyone." UPIC was a '70s experimental French system developed by Greek composer Iannis Xenakis, which is based on drawing on a graphics tablet. It's somehow connected with CCMIX, where they talk about it running on a Windows 98 system. UPIC seems to have developed into Iannix, which you can download from this page. He also talks about liking Ableton Live, but preferring LiveSlice for beat editing/stretching. He uses Etymotic Research headphones. My favourite Aphex Twin track ever is the demo version of Windowlicker, where you can hear that the whole track is put together with samples of him singing.

Moog Little Phatty: An Affordable Synth, Dedicated to Bob

Moog Little Phatty: An Affordable Synth, Dedicated to Bob

Mar 29, 2006 - Show original item

Moog Music's synths are beloved for their sound, playability, and quality standards . . . and the fact that they're not ugly and boring. As true analog synths, they produce sound by directly controlling the electrical voltage that courses through their innards, something that is difficult to translate to digital instruments. But Moog keyboards are usually a luxury item, even though the late synth builder Bob Moog himself wanted to build a more affordable option. The Little Phatty is the "Moog nano" everyone has been waiting for, a basic but uncompromising mono synth that emphasizes live playing. Even if you can't afford the $1500 limited edition with extras like Bob Moog's name signed across the back, a $1000 "stage" option is coming later this spring. If this isn't your thing, you had better accept that you won't be able to shut up your local synth fanboy or girl for the next 12 months. Just lock them in a room with one of these for the year and drop off baloney sandwiches. They'll be happier that way.
