The Hardware Megathread


#5757

It should be for Americans XD (cheeky incoming). Last time I checked the USD is strong AF against the AUD :eyes: I used to take out $500 at an Aussie ATM and it only cost me like $350 :upside_down_face:


This is relevant to some people’s interests…

I’ve been practicing my finger drumming, here’s the current (low) level of my skills, with total disregard for tempo and a few mistakes on the second half. Big mistakes on the second half, normal mistakes everywhere…


#5759

Thoughts and Prayers, I just booked a courier to send the MPC Live for repair and get the USB replaced…


#5760

Yellow keys be like…

I’ll have to look into it. I think lemon juice is the way, or something else if it isn’t from smoke. I don’t think it’s smoke, it never smelled like a smoker’s synth and it’s worse than I remember

Looks like the kind of thing you’d use retro-brite for. Lot of ways to go about that, but I think most of them depend on common household cleaners/chemicals/shampoos and some sunlight.


#5762

yeah I’ve seen people retrobrite with hydrogen peroxide and sunlight.

The thought of taking that keybed apart to retrobrite it is terrifying :open_mouth:


#5763

The cat is appalled.
Very rightly so.


#5764

Yeah my Moog Little phatty keys have gone yellow too, again kept in a smoke free environment, strange.


#5765

Definitely sounds like a full day’s work, yes. Maybe two. I have a few of those weekends ahead of me, know how you feel.


#5766

I was at work today the normal boring day so I visited Elektronnauts forum and noticed the blastbeats thread,a couple of folks on the thread got rid of their blastbeats after a few days because it didn’t sound like an 808, there’s some proper brainless folk around passing themselves off as producer/musicians.


#5767

I can’t speak to that scenario specifically. But if you dig around on Elektronauts too long you’ll find a lot of opinions like this–where it is absolutely clear the person just doesn’t seem to know what they are talking about.


#5768

With the Mpc out for repair I took the Force out of storage, once it clicked again it it was like meeting an old friend again…

Super fun to jam and come up with something.

#5770

Ah yes you mean it’s a forum!


#5771

The more I deal with internet musicians the more I basically just hate every place online except this forum thread LOL.


#5772

Played a small loft party this past weekend in Cleveland, OH. That was a wild ride. I accidentally only ate pretzels and popcorn on Saturday. Went to an awesome taco place for brunch the next day and drank all the fucking bottomless mimosas.

I thought my buddy was giving me THC mints during one hour I played. Turned out I ate shitload of nicotine mints lol. Went really well with the dragonfruit Red Bull and vodka. edit: after all that shit kicked in suddenly the BPM of the set jumped to 130+ lol


#5773

Looks furtive, sneaks away


#5774

It’s like visiting the fruit forum, I’m interested in buying a banana I’ve visited the banana production page, I’ve download the banana manual and I’ve watched some banana YouTube videos.

I ended up buying the banana but after a week of use I was pretty gutted it didn’t taste like an apple so I had to return it.


#5775

Forever now am I going to think of Canecreek as a Minion.


#5776

I would end the sentence here.
Have you seen any of my or Relic’s posts over there?
