  1. Chvches use moogs . Not sure if you can get moog apps for windows .. on Mac , the moog apps work on GarageBand . Just a thought ..
  2. Interesting regarding grunge in general .. The one band I thought was the best and never saw unfortunately was Alice in Chains . Nirvana to me were overhyped where they were played to death . Their videos running constantly , and multiple singles from the nevrrmind album released on a par with def leppard and their mega commercial success . I have a few nirvana albums ,but do not play them and haven't done so in years. Pearl jam did nothing for me , except a couple of tracks " The vocalist just sounds less than cheerful and very samey. A bit like Paul Rogers ( sorry , only my opinion ) Soundgarden ; I purchased their ultra mega video and thought it was just dated sounding crap . Thankfully it only cost me £3. I had the flower 12" . A 12" with come together and big dumb sex . Okay for a few spins . The screaming life and fopp eps are good ..except rock not pop or something . As for the rest , louder than love and badmotorfinger are their best imho . Superunknown to me is patchy. Some of the tracks sounded like they were too stoned to be bothered imho. And should not have been on the album . I saw them a few times . Some good some boring . The last time at Hyde park supporting sabbath . They played the superunknown album in its entirety . Not much talking to the audience . It just seemed like a job to them. Should have done badmotorfinger instead as the last few tracks they played were not really into getting the crowd going. Wouldve like to have seen tad , as I like " touch me I'm sick " For me , grunge was about poor production and arttitude , but not everyone's cup of tea ..
  3. Mmm.... how much ram have you got on your laptop? How old is laptop? Any stuff you could delete? a stab in the dark tbh, ax iTunes has been a pain on and off doing the same thing as you . I believe it's not iTunes anymore , but Apple Music which may be a factor . ( updates etc) Others should be along soon to help.
  4. I've recorded this ,so will probably watch over the weekend . Thanks for the reminder . Was never a huge nirvana fan tbh , but thought I'd share a couple of experiences .. Back in ( '91?) before never mind album was out 4 of us saw them at the Astoria . Hole were supporting , so we went to the bar. The thing here to remember , is that 2 of my friends were heavily into them and grunge in general , and I was stuck in metal . My other friend is ufo and metal etc. so, myself and the other friend bought tickets on the night on a whim, after coming out of the angel pub up the road . W were all in the balcony with a table . My metal friend hated them . Sound wasn't great . Just loud and pearcy where we were . The other 2 liked them . I was indifferent as I never had anything , although grandma take me home was embedded in my brain . They do like a chorus .. Saw them at the Kilburn national as an added date a couple of years later and they were amazing . Apparently the grunge bands performances could vary on any given night . Apologies for the ramble ..
  5. Let's get the ball rolling: what artists do you listen to that have the sound you are after? Are you talking synth effects units to use with your bass? Are you doing home recording ,and want to buy synths but not sure which ones to get? Are you looking for apps for your pc/mac/ipad etc?
  6. In a nutshell , I'm happy with my setup and dodged a bullet by not being swayed by getting something I more or less already have . I could or maybe should have started another thread , but in a way my last post more or less finishes this one . Some things are easier to explain in person rather than typing 😸
  7. After using the dfam, grandmother and minitaur for a while now , I finally realised that I don't need the sound studio after all . I know I said that above .. When I finally setup the correct positioning of the dfam on a homemade stand , I was able to connect the various patch cables a lot easier . This meant there was no need for a euro rack stand. The mixer I have is adequate . If I were to get the studio bundle , it would have been the mother 32 , and not the harmonicon. The harmonicon doesn't appeal to me . The mother 32 has more sockets for patch cables and looked easier to programme than the grandmother initially . Having said that and after looking at various you tube vids, it seems like I've now got the hang of using the dfam and grandmother together and I'm not missing out on anything really . Apart from a few more sockets on the mother 32. Now I see there is an updated release of the sound studio for ..£2,000 approx with harmonicon/dfam / mother 32 Not for me ! There have been 2 sellers on eBay selling the moog sound studio for £850 . ( dfam and grandmother ) pretty much mint condition . I did for a moment or 2 think about buying them and selling my dfam ( which means that I would have the moog bundle for approx £400 Having said all of that , I think that I can live without the kiddie posters and cartoon cutouts and stick with what I've got. I am wondering why moog have released this latest version of the sound bundle so soon . Poor sales??
  8. I preferred Louie Louie Louie , and so you win again 😸👍
  9. Always loved abba . Back in the day , I used to buy lots of 7" singles . Abba , Boney M , Hot Chocolate , Sparks , atomic rooster etc etc . Forward to present , all 7" singles gone . Everything went heavy metal or Tangerine dream . Still love sparks , although I'm selective about their catalogue . Saw them a few times . I have a cd box set of all abba albums ,and tbh only dislike about 2-3 tracks . In this day and age, I'll wait to see if the new album is good . If so, I'll get that on cd too That album cover for Abba greatest hits reminds me of good times ...
  10. Exactly the same as me 😸
  11. If there a way this could be posted, I'd be in trouble and just buy it now . That yellow is the nuts 🥜. I don't need it , but it's part of lockdown purchasing etc This will be snapped up real soon . I'll have to pretend I didn't see it ..
  12. I will survive . ( played that a few times in a samba / metal style with mr Crowley guitar solo . Always well received ) knock 3 times ; singer " I'll knock you out in a minute " , so unfortunately never played that ..
