really?

I know all you northern folk seem to dig the lava lamps (still might I add, weren't they those things that were cool for about 4 months some 15 years ago??), but they're just... so.. well, I dunno.. I don't get it

I kind of get it, but.. really?

Maybe us ozzies are... lol nah I won't go there, maybe in the Aus/NZ Forums

Looks cool!

Ever heard those lavalamps coming through the mic?

Ive always liked the use of lighting to provide a codusive environment for singers but I also rember how hard I ve worked to keep the noise floor down.

Sweet looking

I've always used lava lamps to indicate when my analog synths were warm enough (stable) to tune. When the lava is flowing, it's time to tune the Mini.

That one on the left looks like it's about to tip!!!!

That's giving me the jitters. One fell off my dresser when I was 15 years old (listening to the "paisley underground" at the time)... and smashed on the carpeted floor. Ew. That was quite disgusting... paraffin and cooking oil everywhere, stank like play-doh in there for weeks.

So... don't let this happen to your high end recording booth...

You're obviously not in earthquake country either? (hopefully!)

well, actually we got really good experiencces with the lamps from "whadafog" in Paris. They use Vovox power cords from Switzerland...wich gives the lamps this typical smooth unique analog colour punch. My boss made shootouts and they let the singers sound significantly better.

cheers from bavaria,

Nice! I love Lava lamps in the studio! This is my control room, as seen through the window from the tracking room.

I must look into the MiniMoog--lavalamp-tuning-theory......the Voyager seems to be fine, but I have a cranky, "real" Mini in the tracking room. Might work on that one....

It really is a function of room temperature. If the studio is cool, the lava lamps take longer to heat up to the melting point and in parallel, the synths take a bit longer to come to temperature stabilization. Some gear with Hz/volt VCOs (think Korg MS-20, Yamaha CS-15 etc) didn't need a lot of time to stabilize, but the other volts/octave VCO designs (Moog, Sequential, Roland, Oberheim) needed time.
