Re: If something's going to kill me...

Not really. Tom O did remake the Two-Voice but not the four or eight voice. I guess you are referring to the Sequential OB-6 (in conjunction with Tom). Yes, it's been out a few years now. I guess Dave just got used to the reliability of the digital world. I wasn't specifically referring to 4/8 voic...

Re: If something's going to kill me...

Having said that I was sometimes disappointed by a few of Dave’s live keyboard sounds through the noughties and over the last decade. Ditto. That must've been by design as they're so easy to achieve even on the cheap? Didn't know Dave kept all his old keyboards (post 80.) You can get modern replica...

Re: If something's going to kill me...

Oh and I can almost guarantee the using Dave's keyboards reference means using emulators not the real thing.

It matters not because you can get all of those sounds out of freeware apps nowadays (possible exception being the PPG Wave.)

Re: If something's going to kill me...

I like and I am joining the criteque club now, my only slight concern about the album is that it will sound a bit disjointed, ie the tracks recorded in bits in bobs and long break between completing drum parts etc, obviously not the bands fault as they were in bits with the loss of Dave and they al...

Re: If something's going to kill me...

Just brilliant!

Love the song's genesis and development and the seed planted by JJ.

I did say at the time I interpreted it as a tribute to Dave...to much silence :lol:

Re: dark matters chart chances

I'm sure it would make a difference to the band for them to be able to say "this is our first ever number one album - the perfect tribute to Dave". But with less sales than say Aural Sculpture, would it have any meaning? If that was their agenda then I'm all for them delaying release unti...

Re: dark matters chart chances

Actually I think it's a shame the Manics album is coming out on the same day. I hope it doesn't have an impact on Dark Matters sales. It undoubtedly will as they realised the Iron Maiden LP was coming out on the 3rd and came up with some Bullshit Production Delay. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapata...

I'm fairly confident it's not going to be a particularly good one either.
It's a sliding scale but there's at least three tracks on it I like - so that's one more than on Giants.
