I love that '80s Ana Log Four.

Just joking you. 1980s synthesizers are probably my favorites.

That is a really nice Tascam cassette recorder as well. Truly seminal machines.

Here for the gear
Welp, an update for 2020...

Well, it's been several years, I'd moved a couple of places, and since I am isolating completely due to chronic health issues amid this virus (not an Access T1), I figure I'd post an update of some guy sitting in his literal bedroom studio.

Top left: Roland Juno-106, M-Audio Keystation 88 II
Upper right: Macbook Pro 2013 13" 2.66GHz Core i5, Yamaha MG10/2 mixer, left half of JBL 5" desk speakers, rubber duck

Right - Reason (running on a Windows 10 PC down below the desk at the time of the photo, but was too noisy to do any mic recording. MBP dead-silent by comparison.)

Lower right - Novation Launchpad Pro (first version), and vertically above that is an AKG Perception 100 condenser mic, also the right JBL speaker, atop which is another rubber duck.

I bought Space and Chillout by KLF on the same day back in 1990, they both turned up in the local record shop on the same day so I’ve always assumed they were released together, Chillout is by far more popular its stuff of legend and was far more accessible at the time, however space is very good too.

You have excellent taste both in instruments and in music! The original "Space" (with Paterson's contributions) can be heard here:

Space and Chill Out were also albums i bought in 1990 and still have them. Cauty recorded the album in a week after removing Paterson contributions after they both fell out, as Paterson didn't want to release Orb stuff under the KLF comms label.

Bits of space pop up on 3AM Eternal (original pure trance 2 remix 12") and as well as Pluto Calling (some of that can be heard on the KLF's Pet Shop boys remix 'It must be Obvious' (UFO Mix)), and the ltd. edition of the KLF [email protected] skelter.

Space is still an album i play very much.

Nope. I'm chuggling along here, too. Since USA just hit the number one spot, they might send me home for a while. Honestly, I'm surprised they haven't already since this place would run fine (arguably better, even) without the admin staff.

Speaking of music i was a proper vinyl junkie in the late 80's early 90's.
My collection was kept in a shed for about 15 years and it was only a few months back i visited the shed to find the roof was rotten and had been leaking on the records, about 30% of the collection was ruined, the picture below is my garage and what you see is what i managed to save from the shed.

at the time i was just going to leave them all rot in the shed however i'm glad i made the effort.

Heartbreaking, about that shed.

So glad you salvaged some of it.

You would probably be surprised how much water damaged records can be salvaged... not the jackets of course but the vinyl. I’ve been thinning my 10000+ collection over the last 8 years via discogs and trading them for gear, actually surprisingly lucrative. The idea you tossed 30% of that makes my heart palpitate.
Ya, big ups on the music link tho! Already listened through and purchased the chill out LP

My mom loves telling the story about how, when CDs first came out, she took her huge vinyl collection to the dump and threw them all out like frisbees. I think I was there and helped, but can't really remember.

She very much regrets that now.

Just don't drop them from standing, to the floor. That's pretty much the end of a record. Learned this with my first purchase, Piper At The Gates Of Dawn. Got a new one years later, kept the cover as wall art.

Hunt EDA Carbon Fiber Brush 06 is probably one of the best LP related purchases I have ever made, worth the $30.

I still want to kill my mom for throwing away my CD collection a couple years ago. Approximately 3,000 albums with lots of rarities intermingled. It makes me sick to think how much that music was worth, and she tossed it out of my garage into the garbage.

I was an obsessed collector and i loved pristine covers, my friends knew dropping my vinyl back into its cover was a big no no for me, you place them back in.

just could bare all the mould on the covers so just left them, as you can see from the picture the ceiling went black and fungi started growing
