Charanjit Singh "Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat"

An early use of a Roland Transistor Bass TB-303, especially in conjunction with a Roland drum machine, is now attributed to pioneering Indian musician Charanjit Singh's Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat.

This is an album of original electronic disco compositions recorded using the TB-303 and TR-808 in 1982, pre-dating the sound of acid house by at least half a decade, but forgotten in obscurity until his rediscovery in the early 21st century.

Acid8 joins the Str8 Sounds electronic music studio!

Just finished ordering from Perfect Circuit Audio a Twisted Electrons ACID 8 MKII Hybrid Acid Machine bassline synthesizer.

I was patiently waiting for the Lorre-Mill Double Knot indeterministic groovebox, Eowave Titan Capsule Atmospheric Eurorack Modular Synthesizer, Eowave Quadrantid Swarm Synthesizer, to be available (or back in stock), but I couldn't wait anymore. I felt the GAS tugging me and I succumbed. :-)

Acid8 is a fun and easy to use hybrid digital/analog acid machine controlled by a powerful step sequencer. Acid8 has been upgraded featuring a slick rugged brushed aluminium case and the highest quality bolted potentiometers and metal knobs.

The heart of Acid8 is an 8-BIT oscillator that can be manipulated to the extreme. You have 16 waveforms to choose from and can even redraw your own waveforms.

You can apply up to 5 DSP effects at once, invert bits of the digital signal for weird harmonics and effects, link the envelope modulation to pitch for percussive sounds and much more.

All signal beyond the oscillator is 100% analog offering a punchy VCA and gritty resonant low pass filter.

-- 16 waveforms (4 editable in software):

* Rectangle: Prophet, Distorted, SID and Perfect Rectangle

* Triangle: NES, Prophet, SID and 3-BIT Triangle

* Saw: Prophet, TB-303, SID and 3-BIT Saw

* Sine: Pure, Overtone Sine, Acoustic Guitar and Piano

* Pulse-Width modulation

-- Arpeggiator

-- Bit Crushing & Sample Rate Reduction

-- Envelope Pitch Modulation

-- Bit invert effect

-- Slide effect with adjustable speed

Sound On Sound gave the Acid8 a fantastic review. This is no run-of-the-mill Roland TB-303 clone, but a whole new type of bass synth based on an Atmega 8 bit chip. Can't wait to get it.

This icon celebrates the richness of Syriac Christianity. The
theological experience of Syriac Christians is different because they
have encountered the Gospel in such a language.

Theirs is anunhellenized expression -- one that is neither Europeanized nor
Westernized. The Syriac tradition knows no dichotomy between the mind
and heart. The heart is the center of the human person -- center of
intellect as well as feelings. The body and all of creation longs to
be reunited with God.

Syriac Christianity (Syriac:mšiḥāiūṯā suryāiṯā) encompasses the
multiple Churches of Eastern Christianity whose services tend to
feature liturgical use of ancient Syriac, a dialect of Middle Aramaic
that emerged in Edessa in the early 1st century AD, and is closely
related to the Aramaic of Jesus.

The Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch claims the status as the most
ancient Christian church in the world. According to Saint Luke, "The
disciples were first called Christians in Antioch" (New Testament,
Acts 11:26). Saint Peter and Saint Paul are regarded as the
co-founders of the Patriarchate of Antioch in AD 37, with the former
serving as its first bishop and considered the first patriarch of and
by the Syriac Orthodox Church.

As Jewish Christianity originated at Jerusalem, so gentile
Christianity started at Antioch, then the leading center of the
Hellenistic East, with Peter and Paul as its apostles. From Antioch it
spread to the various cities and provinces of Syria, among the
Hellenistic population as well as among the Hellenistic Jews who, as a
result of the great rebellions against the Romans in A.D. 70 and 130,
were driven out from Jerusalem and Palestine into Syria.

— Catholic Encyclopedia

When Saint Peter left Antioch, Evodios and Ignatius presided over the
Patriarchate of Antioch. Because of the significance attributed to
Saint Ignatius in the Syriac Orthodox Church, almost all of the Syriac
Orthodox Patriarchs since 1293 have been named Ignatius.

Str8 Sounds "Pew Protest"

LYRICS: There was a very sad person in the other pew. He looked at the pastor and did not know what to do. He opened his Bible and he saw quite a few things that weren't being taught like how to view how the rich exploit the poor, how we're always going to war. There was a person who was sitting in the next pew. He looked into his Bible and saw quite a few things that his pastor would not tell him how to view, how we're always going to war, but what's the clue from shores of the pacifist freeze when Jesus said to get down on your knees and pray, instead of slay. He said to pray, and not to slay. There was a person sitting next to me behind my pew. I noticed that he looked confused and so would you when your pastor never tells you how you might want to view this warmongering government and all the things they do.
