It's not our biz when they make throw it out in the public domain for all to see, and to a greater extent, comment on?

Oh... I thought there was this thing I had called a keyboard, which in turn allowed me to use forums which were marketplaces of ideals and open dialogue...

Turns out I was completely wrong!

Its this that gets me. Sure do what you like with your money, I'm never jealous of what other people have, it just riles me that with such a machine Mr Maus wont be creating a Stella any time soon.
I would personally have to feel I was another Boris Blank, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, or Trevor Horn etc before I thought I would spend that much on something.

They are not trophy toys to me, they were the machines that facilitated the visions of geniuses.

I know there is a mental space were these things just smell nice, and have their own aura about them - but that kind of mentality applies to collecting anything, cars or snuff boxes - and it buds off from the reality of the existence of these things when they were burning hot, creating hits. All you are doing, unless you are creating music as good as the past greats - is touching the hem of the Kings gown, and hoping some kind of glory with be transmuted to you.

Plus, Boris Blank would be just as creative with his macbook and probably is...

There is a very specific reason why pop culture in America is why it is...
If you shut off the sound to say the Madonna, Super Bowl Half Time Show, yea its horrible, like watching a bunch of bad actors.

That's for a whole nother discussion all together...

But besides that, he isn't American, he is Canadian. One thing I've always wondered is why he admitted to that.

He's probably proud of being a Canuck. Nothin' wrong with that.

Maybe because he is Canadian, not American. Sounds logical to me....

Easy with the $19K price tag.
If he bought the NAMM demo it probably cost him around $4-5K tops.

I cant be bothered to read the last few pages of sludge, but I will say this... Joel is actually a nice guy who is just getting on with it as he feels. He is making tunes and buying whatever gear he can, like all of us. Sorry but, if you don't like it, you're jealous innit.

why even question someone's decision to experience a fairlight. is that any more extravagant than buying an early mac and turning it into a fish tank? The thing is cool. it's also a piece of electronic music history, and not everyone has used it...so that makes it kind of esoteric in a sense. Power to him.

I can understand arguing about gear - and not agreeing on something. Makes sense...

But i don't understand arguing over other people (i.e. Deadmau5 in this case). Even after dozen posts moved, people still talk things that have nothing to do with this topic.

Why? Seriously! Why so much hate?!!

Can't we just discuss Fairlight in here?

Honestly, in a world where we have Jersey Shore or Kim Kardashian ( replace with your favorite "talent") who do nothing much (or Footballers being paid £100,000 per week in the UK. Think about it. They can buy a CMI 30a with 1 days (yes 24 hours) wages for playing football), we are attacking a guy who makes music and happens to be successful at it.
Like it or not, he's making money and spending quite a lot on tasty gear.
Good luck to him.

Anyone who has actually made any money in the music industry realizes it's hard work, you need to be smart AND yes, you need luck, but you do make your own (and like every rule, there are exceptions to prove it!)

Anyway, it's all good Don. I agree with you that it's not a Series III or IIx but I can imagine it being a useful tool for the wealthy artist AND I believe that with the power of the card, it will be open to serious upgrades (but Fairlight were always risky when it came to those!)
At least it's not a gold plated MPC60

You're right. I apologize. I simply won't discuss the mau5 or the music of the mau5 henceforth.

He's such an ignorant self-absorbed egomaniac. He wants to "bring back the 80's"? News flash: the 80's were never gone to people whose interest in the music was not merely a trendy coincidence with the re-release of a classic sampler. Let's see how many videos he posts of himself actually playing the thing. More likely he'll spend his time taking yet another self-ingratiating public **** on culture and history he doesn't even understand.

Behold Herbie exhaling an entire era of music on said sampler.

no man, he have money, that doesn't mean he can buy whathever him wants. I bet you know lots of rich people that when they start something they buy all the best stuff for sale, and after 5 months they are not even using it anymore.

the same happens to deadmau5, he'll probably never use it in a single production. but that doesn't mean he can't have one. Actually it's because of him that i, and many other people around here knows this forum. He used to be a guy like us that buys lots of gear to make his musics. But he made success and us, don't, yet... Now that he has lots of free time and money in his hand he's making stuff that he always wanted to make.

As we have some dreams, he has his too. So there's no reason to hate him, i think

Can you please clarify something for us here? What, in your mind, constitutes hate? Expressing one's opinion in regards to not being a fan of a particular flavor of music? Articulating that a certain production style is not paletteable to one's ears?

The topic of discussion was "Look at what deadmau5 got today." OK. Looked. Interesting piece of equipment, uninteresting arrogant somewhat mean-spirited user. Let's just see what the man does with it.

So if he would say "time to hit the club" you would also assume that he was going to strike a piece of wood? It's your over the top reaction at taking "Bring back the 80s" completely literally that is causing the facepalm.

But not so uninteresting that you could keep yourself from working up a frenzy and posting about it in an angry manner.

Why bother following people that don't interest you?

I know, I know... I shouldn't post when I'm going through caffeine withdrawals. He's an unpleasant human being at times, but I need to be more zen about it... I now owe 50 constructive posts as penance for my incontinence.

For those who actually want to discuss Fairlights, I was lucky enough to score a IIx not too long ago... Those Fairlights have a sound unmatched by anything today!

(Synclavier, but they were doing their own thing too... 100khz converters back in the day!!!)
