Hurricane Dorian is about to smash is in Florida!! May all our synths be protected by maybe a higher force if you believe in that? And stay safe all those other gearsluts living in Florida like me! Please keep your synths safe! We need to prepare for a fight with this thing... I have my command station set to kill!!

Do what any rational person would do in your situation: Build a protective dome made from DX7s for your house!

Kja 30th August 2019 01:27 PM

Thanks guys!! And girls!!

Wives too, otherwise who would look after the children while we are playing with the synths? ;)

Interesting mode for a hurricane to be in, do you know the key?

kcearl 30th August 2019 02:14 PM

Make a raft for your synths out of wimmin and children!! Priorities!!!

No worries, just let all that gear float away. Like most on GS, you were probably spending more time wanking on tech specs than actually making quality music with it.

The news has Dorian at CAT 6 already; Florida will be snapped off and transported north to reinforce the OBX in NC. Don’t worry, you’ll love it up there.

The NOAA - what’s left of it - has Dorian meandering as CAT 2 at a leisurely 11 knots. Mainly expect lots of rain.

Good luck! Early start to hurricane season.

Actually to me it barely looks like a Cat1, the wind speed around the inner eye is really low, see this real time wind map:

realtrance 30th August 2019 04:36 PM

Latest NOAA forecast (11AM EST) has the shear which was degrading Dorian eased off, so yes, it's likely to intensify. Last drop sonde readings had it going 310 degrees at 9 knots now.

But hurricanes remain very unpredictable, even with all the great research and analysis and modeling that goes into every report.

All of the "spaghetti" lines in a spaghetti graph are true, just at statistically more or less likely ways.

In any event, yes, be careful out there! Watch for alligators! :)

Coorec 30th August 2019 05:43 PM

Keep them reptiles away from synths! :tut:


For safety i recommend to send them endangered synths all to my place. For safety, i tell you!

jerry123 30th August 2019 07:05 PM

Hope you have your emergency kit prep'd. One good tip I received lately is to get CASH to have on hand. Power may go out but any stores that do open after whatever happens might not have card systems or working ATMs if you need supplies later on.

Stay safe!

realtrance 30th August 2019 07:13 PM

Currently headed straight for Már a Lago..... just sayin’....:heh:

roland4387 30th August 2019 07:13 PM

It’s just a hurricane, whatever! You should’ve seen my studio after the ‘94 Northridge Earthquake!

Just F-ing around, of course. Good luck out there.

My boss was in Puerto Rico this week when it hit. It hadn't picked up enough to be a hurricane yet, but he said he's been through much worse. More importantly though, he's bringing those Spanish limes back with him!

Oh yeah, good luck and all that.

Sounds serious...

Keep your batteries fresh for mains free synthin...

Stay safe...

Hope you've been saving all those desiccant packets and not eating them!

Stay safe.

realtrance 31st August 2019 12:32 AM

Roland Boutiques! Run on batteries! Don't leave 'em behind!

thehighesttree 31st August 2019 01:06 PM

I've always listened to Frankie for storm advice, and I've never run out of pop, chinese food or spare batteries as a result.

Also, I'd recommend a WEIGHTED cover like a tarp with grommets weighted down if you keep your gear next to a window, you just never know...

realtrance 31st August 2019 04:10 PM

By latest scientific reports, sounds like Dorian may end up scrubbing the east coast up to NC or so, or may even turn out to sea without making landfall.

Who knows?! Best to be prepared, make a party of it in the meantime, the way Floridians always have. Life is too short to spend all your time worrying. jkthtyrt

SonicBern 31st August 2019 11:26 PM

There is an element of virtual modeling v's traditional analog forecasting

The only thing suggesting it will turn north are two virtual computer models. It could barrel through like Andrew...

realtrance 31st August 2019 11:33 PM

It could barrel thru, join up with another low forming in the Gulf of Mexico, grow to CAT 5 and finish off New Orleans and Houston, then turn south towards Mexico City where it meets up with lots of smog which increases the particulate matter hail can form around and then end up hailing on Mexico City with hail the size of golf balls and watermelons, after which Popocatepetl(sp?) erupts and sends lava northward to the Texas border with Mexico, dissolving all human constructions before it.


But..... pROBAbLy not. abduction
