Re: Rob Hubbard to receive honorary degree

And not a day too soon, I may add.

Pity it's only honourary. But merited all the same.

Run some SIDs through quality orchestral romplers for Kontakt and the like - to hear and appreciate afresh -and you really hear just how good these guys were.

Re: Updated tutorial on digital mastering.

I like playing with the chords or adding new bass but sometimes I add too much and I have to simplify because there are too many sounds simultaneously and I wonder what should be the best way to diferentiate them and keep them "audible". You're welcome. If you find several parts merging, maybe the ...

Re: Updated tutorial on digital mastering.

Re: Astro Wars by Grandstand - a remix?

That does sound very French disco, yes.

I can't say what's art but I know what I like. And I've very much liked the traditional rock band approach to playing SID tunes.

And look at this guy, firing his SID machine with guitar: https://youtu.be/_xeFdR-aVNM?t=337

Any takers? Lads?
