132 - Pearls of Wisdom        

From: R-Tek
Email: r-tek@dial.pipex.com
Date: 03-Nov-99


After DJ Schwamm`s superb "Make sure your cables r plugged in" tip and the one about turning your equipment on that Joe then felt compelled 2 write, I feel that it is only right that I should pass on my sizeable knowledge, not jus` about music production but about the world in general. Use this wisdom wisely it could b dangerous in the wrong hands......

- U hear all this talk about analogue monosynths, Virtual analogues, Jupiter this Juno that, Virus etc.etc. U wanna know something? They`re all shit, dont waste yer money. The casiotone keyboard is far better than any of this, in fact I compell u know 2 sell all of your soundsources and replace them with this mighty unit - its all u ever need!!!! I shouldn`t really b tellin` u this but my contacts in the industry inform me that Casio r currently doing a deal with Mcdonalds 2 provide a Casiotone free with every happy meal!!! The greatest synth jus` got better!!!

-I guess buying a sampler can b very daunting nowadays with the amount of choice available, no? Well heed these words of wisdom - the best kept secret in sampling can b found in the Argos catalogue!!!! 4 only £24.99 u can b the proud owner of the Sing-alonga-Tomy!!! It has one note polyphony and even comes with a free microphone!!! And if u think the MPC series is portable u should see this baby!!!

-Ok, this one aint an audio tip as such but very usefull nonetheless, I hope u learn from the mistake I made recently when buying a car: When buying a 2nd hand motor vehicle PLEASE undertake a thorough inspection of it b4 handing over any money. I recently let my heart rule my head when buying what was advertised as as a Golf GTI 16V, it seemed fine when I gave it the once over but imagine my surprise when, after handing over the money in exchange for the keys I realised that the "Golf GTI 16V" was little more than a cleverly disguised Yukka plant!!! I was gutted. Mind u, saves on road tax, and petrol...Mmmmmm....

-Thinking of buying a car? DONT buy a Yukka plant instead.................. think I need 2 lie down now.........sorry Kilo, couldn`t help meself.
