  1. @djb
  2. @dwbasement How's the Bach recording/pressing? Was that from vinyl destination?
  3. Sad news, part of my youth.
  4. I attended the 'Resonant Bodies' concert at the Salon room of the Recital centre last week. The concert ended with a nod to Oliveros, the audience invited to participate in one of her compositions. A nice tribute.

  6. Thanks Russell, for taking the time for such a comprehensive response. I will follow up on those links. I do have the manual but couldn't find anything helpful in relation to this issue. Re the ATAPI compliant issue, the same goes for MPC that I converted from floppy to CF drive, so the CF/IDE adapter I used there is presumably ATAPI compliant, and unfortunately that didn't work on the BR8. But you've given me something to go on, cheers. EDIT- Yes, there is 'converter' software which enables the data recorded on a zip disc with the BR8 to be converted to .wav files on a PC. Of course, that leads to a new problem, in that Windows doesn't read zip drives after the XP operating system!
  7. Thanks for that suggestion. From what I can figure out from a few stray forum posts that google found, only certain models of CF or SD to IDE adaptors will work-- unfortunately all the posts I can find link to a now-deleted forum which had the details! I got a CF/IDE apaptor to work on my MPC (to replace the floppy drive), but the same adaptor did not work in the BR8.
  8. From what I can tell it's a IDE connection- 40 pin connector. I tried connecting a generic CF/IDE adapter, it 'fit' but the BR8 did not read it.
  9. Hi all I have a little desktop recording set up which includes a BOSS BR-8 digital 8 track recorder. I love this thing, it has features that many modern stand alone multitrack recorders lack (e.g. MIDI connection), however it uses a zip drive and zip discs. This is becoming increasingly problematic as time goes by for a range of reasons. I have tried googling for a way to change the drive to CF or preferably SD cards for data storage. It seems there were only 1-2 people who had any success and the various forum posts are so old that the details of which drives/adaptors worked are now long deleted. The parts themselves should be cheap, it's a matter of knowing which will work. I have had succes installing a CF adapter on an old sampler but the BR-8 has me beat. Does anyone happen to know someone in Melbourne that might have the expertise to take a look and work out how to make this work? I would rather pay someone that can work this out than spend the money on a new digital multitrack. Thanks
  10. Maybe try something radical- enjoying what you already have and like? sorry, silly idea I know...
  11. I'm torn. Obviously it's appealing to have a great album on record, but surely as the consumate artists they are, I presume Gillian and Dave would have had this done already if they wanted to? Maybe I'm too cynical. I've wondered before whether they had any particular reasons for not releasing their albums on records?
  12. sold pending payment
  13. I have not listened to all of them- I've listened to most of the Karajan set and didn't notice anything major, I'm in 3073 (Reservoir).
  14. Item: Beethoven Symphonies record box sets x2, Karajan (8 records + label sampler) and Karl Bohm (9 records) Location: 3073 Price: $50 for the two (the Karajan seems to fetch a good price on ebay so I think this price is more than fair) Item Condition: The records all visually look to be all least VG+ or better. I haven't listened to them all and don't intend to, sorry The Karajan box is in pretty good shape, a few small creases. The Bohm box has a few spots, probably from water (?) but is structurally good. All booklets are in good condition. Reason for selling: I have 3 box sets of the Beethoven symphonies and realised that is at least 2 too many for me. Making space in record shelves. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Only Extra Info: Both on Deutsche Grammophon. Karajan serial # on box KL 1/8 SKL101/S. Bohm 2720 045-10 Pictures:
  15. @Ian McP I'm pretty sure both Mika and Jimi had plenty of releases on the Sahko label. Mika's catalog is quite diverse, from harsh noise to sound experiments to austere stripped back minimal techno. I couldn't really single anything out, @analog brother brother singled out Metri, the Pan Sonic 3CD set Kesto spans a good range. Just dive in, it's hard to go wrong. Last one on my TT is:
