    I'm going to agree with you on this one, Mike .

    As Mike said, nice setup. Hey, what's it like living in Portugal? back when i was a surfy and used to associate with others of similar species, i would occasionally be regaled with fine stories of big 8foot gaping barrels at Mundaca, things you just rode till the end or they got you, whichever way it panned out...sounds like a wyld place, i think it is in or near Portugal?

    I CLAN

    Hi there I-Clan, even though I use PC in my compositions, I find your setup very nice for music creativity. Well Portugal, is a small country in Europe, the leftmost country in Europe, surrounded by sea and nice surf and wind surf spots. Depending on the conditions its sure to say we have wonderful conditions for some droping barrels. Its wonderful country filled with laid back people (this is not a quality). Party wise, 10 stars.

    Astral,

    What do you think of the Andromeda? Is it a bit buggy still? I'd love to get one but I hear bad things. Not about the sound of course but about it's midi implementation.

    thanks,

    fitz

    Yeah, i like PC's too. i use an Asus laptop, i really love it. Top machine. Clean, lean, and makes me beam
    Man, if i get this VJ/DJ/live electronic thing together, i'll drop over to Europe within a couple of years, and do a few events in Portugal i reckon! Haha, dream dream, but u never know eh, things can happen at the right time.
    How cool would it be to go out and record some awesome surf footage, and then project it live that night at a dance party!

    Aight cheers.

    Hey astral or fitz, what is an Andromeda anyhow? has it got sick sounds?

    The Alesis Andromeda is a "real analogue" synth. 16 voices 16 parts. Oodles of knobs. And a hefty price tag ($3000)

    disgusting sounds come out of this thing.





    dis·gust·ing (ds-gstng)
    adj.

    So completely awesome you will vomit

    the andromeda is kinda cool dont think i am going to keep it for 2 reasons.
    1. i dont like having to program out my as# to get the patches i want(factory sux always).I program enough synthz as is and i dont think this one is worth my time-read 2
    2.real analog is awsome but i am into futureistic type sounds(wich anaolog will do ), i see my self sitting for weeks programming and i dont want to wast time...
    most of the sounds (factory presets)are technoish or / the keyboard is geared to tech people....all the sounds i am able to get right now sound like an old jupiter/moog/ob 12 and i got those .........
    and dont someone say it is user error / i know how to program synths....
    I JUST DONT LIKE IT....

    it is still buggy even with new os and there will be more to come after alesis gets out of chapter 11 shi@
    but over all every hting works fine (dont like to tune the thing every time i power on ether)
    the andromeda is a great synth but i like my q/microwave /virus / virtuals better call me stupid.
    if any one wants some mp3s of this let me know i will send them ........
