Fake Plastic Plants

Word of the Week #57


Heres some footage from our gig last tuesday. Its shot by dsoaudio and Robin Rimbaud (who also took the pic above), then I edited it together. I think youtube has messed up the sync because it worked perfectly on my computer before I uploaded it. Grrr

And heres a review of the gig from the Electricity Club

Big Reverbz

Here is a comparison of four of my favourite big and old digital reverbs: Yamaha Rev1, Lexicon 224, Roland R880 and Eventide H3000, recorded in that order. I tried to get similar settings on them, so they all have decay times of around 10 seconds. You really need to listen on headphones to hear the subtle differences between them. I thought the mighty Oberheim Four Voice would be a good way of testing them. Which is your favourite?
