Not such a daft idea when you think about it. Student goes to college and learns new stuff, decides to invest in the software to complete assignment work after a couple of months, has to get the new version, college then has to invest to keep up with where the students are.
Personally I can't wait for version 13 with the revolutionary new one button 'make it sound better' plug in. Piece of piss this production lark!

Got the filtatron on the old dog and bone and on the iPad. Basically must be the fooger code wrapped in an app. It's just a shame it's not too easy to route signals though an iOS device. Still
It's got an FTP thing which is quite good for getting samples into it, would be nice to just be able to patch it into a signal path though. Maybe mr Claus would be a kind fellow and by me one of those Alesis io dock things.

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.

No, we're not allowed shunts. Unless you used Colcroft's opening, of course...? Clever.

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.

The Massey plug-ins are good - and not expensive to buy either. But what about full-on freeware?

(by the way this is all feeding into a spiel for some degree level students - finding low cost but great stuff)

"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...
