Enjoyed the podcast again, especially about the Bach melodic sequence. Very interesting stuff! Also, that part did show again what's so cool about your podcasts: the panel is very diverse and from all kinds of different musical backgrounds so you really get some interesting and sometimes funny perspectives.

Brilliant podcast. Rich and Mark both in fine form. The conversation on Techno evolved well beyond the initial subject and into an enlightened and theoretical discussion on what elements or actions comprise music. Then it was on to Mobius-ized Bach and Rich’s enthusiastic grasp of the master’s techniques. Mark’s observations about digital elements in an analog signal chain rendering the entire output digital reminded me of a similar conversation with a guitarist friend as to why he uses digital effects, “It all gets digitized anyway.�

Oh what a surprise - the Microsampler is being difficult to use. Now I guess I'll be interested to see what Mark Tinley makes of it

As for the digital nature of a digital point in the signal chain...

Analog signals, from what I have gathered, have a truer dynamic, such that signals that are rounded will tend to be rounded and signals that are harsh and squared will tend to remain harsh and squared.

When digital comes in it has to round EVERYTHING at a certain frequency, thus creating aliasing.

The more digital processors you are running your signal through the more rounding that is occurring... The more chance for signal loss and aliasing, whether you have a master clock or not.

I'd rather just get hit with the math here and there... The analog parts in your chain do wonders to tame/liven the digital mix.
