I somehow doubt it. Given how many threads we see per month here on digital vs. analog and the evils of quantizing, beat detective and autotune, I think a dialog is already well under way. No one needs to get people talking; they already are.

But mixing up quantizing and pitch correction and all that stuff into a 'philosophy' that also confusingly includes digital vs analog recording at the basic level is diffusing the argument, is diluting the whole point of what I think she's really after: performances vs. constructions.

And about the next ska revival... it'll be mixed in as part of the 90's retro, which should be starting around 2011. If you want to get ahead of the curve, I suggest building up your ravergrungeska library now. :lol:

You know, I can't think of any threads on the analog vs. digital debate. There are about a million thousand "don't you fucking start that shit" bites when someone has that look in their eye before they even speak, but I don't think any actual A vs. D arguments exist. Funny...

yeah i found that really kinda funny too, but IIRC queen always claimed no synthesizers were used on their albums, i don't remember anything about guitar processors.

wow, that interview was difficult to listen to. Not only did she sound like she had no idea what she was talking about, but you could almost here the Xerox machine adding 1's and 0's to it.

I particularly like how her sister left her there hanging out to dry. You can cut the awkwardness with an axe.

I wanna start an All-Drunk movement where music is written (or almost), performed (sorta) and mixed (with the drinks) when drunk.

Wait.

I (and 25M other home recorders) already did.
lmao PRICELESS!!! :D

That interview does not portray Kim Deal as intelligent. I consider myself an adoring Kim Deal fan for life, but ... Sheesh. She completely failed to explain even the basic concepts about their little 'movement', while stammering plenty ... Which makes me wonder who wrote such an articulate summary of the movement's basic tenets, since albini has denied any direct involvement (or has he?).

The recent posting of the enhanced lollipop logo is superb. Well done.

So what exactly did Brian May shun on a Queen record?

from my copy of queen's "a night at the opera" -
"No Synthesisers!" presumably in reference to freddie's operatic voices and brian's harmony guitar lines.
