Since we’ve had a great delay plug-in release this year some might be interested in some further reading about that topic. A short history about delay effects is given here and some more specific readings about tape delay can be found in the mixonline magazine. Need some overview about the Roland tape echo stuff? Just look here.
From time to time some effect developer apprentices are asking where to start. Today, almost everything can be found in the cloud. Sometimes DSP suppliers/developers are offering good overviews and introductions such as this example. Don’t hesitate to search for all those papers which are freely available, e.g. the original one about the Baxandall tone control. Other ones are even more interesting or at least fun to read. Listen to what the gurus have to tell and deep dive into the DSP resources which are available online.
Age verification question: Do you know what a LP cover is and how it used to look like? Check it out. Missed that Quincy Jones interview?

And wow, that’s pretty much underground.
The usual electronic music related Blog magazines worth mentioning this month are AudioPorn Central (english) as well as Monday Edition and Kraftfuttermischwerk (german language). Btw, is offering such mix tapes or “promo mixes” legal? Anyway, much more important: is this the best new electronic music? Hm, the only one which impressed me so far was the “Track Five” by Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom and that one actually was recorded already some years ago and just the release happened in 2010.
And here we go with right another great video documentation about history of electronic gear and music production. Did I ever mentioned that this is a real great device? And this dangerous one too, of course. Do you think all equalizers are the same? Eat this!
