A pleasant half hour about stealing from Guy Garvey. No, hang on, I need more punctuation there.

For those who use music tech... and for the benefit of studentkind and all those of us unbothered by the urge to spend money on plug-ins, what free, legitimate plug-ins do you actually use?

It doesn't count if you have a hard drive full of free stuff which doesn't ever get used in anger: which ones do the job?

As a start-off, I find myself reaching for the TAL stuff, particularly the last two synths, Elec7ro and NoiseMaker, which are supposed to be similar, but aren't the same.

"Things wot I found on my iPlayer", volume 94. In which Steve Levine discovers that pianos and guitars sounded the same in the early 70s. I'm holding on for a LMFAO documentary in this series. Come on BBC...

Listened to this on the way into work this morning:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b014lz6w#segments (scroll up to play it for the next few days)

A bloke at a piano explains why Elbow are like Henry Purcell and Joy Division. And stuff. Next week: why Chase and Status are like Benjamin Britten. Really. (but probably not for the reasons suggested on my twitter, though, eh)

It reminded me of this, which is brilliant:

But it did strike me that you could pretty much choose to play just about anything you fancied just to make a point? Kind of like a musical version of the Thought for the Day slot on that Radio 4.
