Guitar pedal fun. Intro to an 80s Sat morning cartoon that never existed, but might’ve been epic. Also the first thing I’ve ever written that my 3 year old spontaneously danced to without having to be cajoled. Solo goes on for about 10 mins until I lose interest. #zoom #ms50g #fx #audio #ableton #virusTI #access #cheesewave #retro #synths #synthesisers #Ibanez

Chuffed with this £70 Zoom multifx stomp! Bought it for live violin and lazy studio guitar but the #SH101 will get a lot of time through it an’ all. The last multieffect pedal I bought was also a Zoom - the 505, nearly twenty years ago… This has no MIDI sync for delay but I reckon I can hack the tap tempo function to get clock in there. Shitloads of effects in this MS-50G, anyway, and more than good enough quality for my live/experimental requirements. #guitarpedals #stompbox #roland #analogue #analog #synths #synthesisers #sequencer #ambient #delay #reverb #usbmidi #hardware #hacking #audiotech #digital

Grapevine diskmag #01 - how we got our news in pre-Web 1991 Amiga 880kb floppy by LSD (Leeds Spreading Division). Diskmags were like zines, but from the fucking FUTURE - music, galleries of artwork, articles, warez BBS numbers, coding tutorials, the works. Generally scene-oriented (cracking/trading and demo) but with random shit like extracts from Anarchist’s Cookbook, Philip K Dick, just whatever the hell. Fascinating for this wide-eyed 9yr old. They’d been around since C64 days, perhaps before, but appeared on Amiga soon after its release in late 80s. This first Grapevine is quite basic but characteristically British, from when the UK scene was huge and supplying many of the cracked games and demos I had as a bairn. #demoscene #commodore #chipmusic #8bit #16bit #cracktro #etc
