“8 Reincarnation Stories That Will Open Your Mind”
“Roland MC-707 review
The latest reincarnation of Roland’s groovebox range promises DAW-less track creation. MusicRadar steps out of the box”
It lags behind some rivals on the sampling front, but on the whole, the MC-707 is powerful, well-designed and a lot of fun.
Packed with lots of quality sounds.
Great effects, plus external send/return loop.
Very well thought-out workflow.”
No one-shot sampling or loop-slicing.
Lots of menu-diving.”
“Roland’s MC range of all-in-one grooveboxes has lain dormant since the release of the MC-808 in 2007. Much like their counterparts in Akai’s MPC line, these sampler and synth-equipped sequencers fell out of favour with much of the general public as music-making software became more powerful and modern tools like Ableton Live and NI Maschine made hardware solutions look old hat.
However, over a decade on there’s a new interest in ‘studio in a box’ tools that allow electronic musicians to produce and perform full tracks without a computer.
With the success of their recent MPCs and Force, Akai have proved that mass-market production stations can stand up against a DAW. No surprise, then, that Roland have chosen now to breathe new life into the MC line. While the name and basic principle is the same, the MC-707 isn’t simply an update to those earlier grooveboxes.
From sketching the foundations of a club track to acting as the centrepiece of a live setup, this latest MC ticks a lot of boxes
The MC-707 lands as a member of the brand’s Aira line, and design-wise it’s more like the recent TR-8S than the MC-808 or MC-909. (And no, there’s no D-Beam here; for better or worse!)”
“In total, the MC-707 offers eight tracks, controlled and edited via its central bank of channel strips. Each track can be assigned either a Tone (polyphonic instrument), Drum (multi-part drum kit) or Looper (audio recorder). Recording and sequencing of these elements is then handled by the pads and sequencer buttons, to create Clips, which are recorded, arranged and played using a grid system like Ableton Live’s Clip View.”
Both Drum and Tone generators make use of Roland’s new ZEN-Core engine, using a mixture of PCM samples and virtual analogue. That means there’s no Analog Circuit Behaviour (ACB) tech – the much hyped engine used for the Boutique range and the TR-8S’s drum emulations.
Despite this, the MC-707 is packed with sounds from Roland’s past, which on the whole sound excellent. There are multiple varieties of drum kits based around sounds from each of the company’s classic groove boxes and instrument patches that take influence from Junos, Jupiters, 101 basslines and more.
In total there are more than 3,000 Tone presets and 80 preset Drum kits, each made up of 16 individual drum sounds. The Tone and Drum generators are more than just preset players though; each has a decent amount of sound shaping parameters. Drum sounds can have each individual sample tune shaped, while the Tone engine offers a simple subtractive synth engine, whereby the source sound can be filtered, shaped and have effects applied. ”

Infinity Expression: 25.9.2019: Kundalini is triggered….and obviously one can label this as a YES!
“So we are part of the morning stars, that soul group that came into physicality form and the three-dimensional world, here’s the quote from Job: “The morning stars sang together and all the children of God shouted for joy at the coming of humanity.” So celestial beings descend out of non-material existence, celestial life into matter, at the time it looked pretty interesting to us, I don’t know how you feel about it now, but then we thought it looked pretty coo. We are really from Cayces perspective star travelers and here’s a beautiful reading on this: “As an
entity passes on from this present time or this solar system, this Sun, these forces, it passes through the various spheres on and on through the eons of time and space, leading first into the carnal forces or the central force, known as Arcturus, near the Pleiades, that’s a Stargate Edgar had stargates long before the TV show or the movie. Eventually an entity passes into the
inner forces inner sense then they may again after a period of nearly ten thousand years there’s really no time to an immortal soul enter into the earth to make manifest those forces gained in
this passage do so do you see how the earth is a place to prove what you’ve learned or you feel you know, here you can manifest it, oh you think you’re that way we can set up a
situation in which you can prove it to yourself and to the rest of us, it’s called Earth, in entering the entity takes on those forms that may be known in the dimensions of that plane which it
occupies there being only not only three dimensions as of the earth but there may be seven as in Mercury now he’s talking about the dimension of mercury not the little planet the little planet is a three-dimensional representation of fourth-fifth dimensional realms of activity, seven dimensions to which or four and Venus or five in Jupiter, there may be only one is in Mars there may be many more as in those of Neptune or they may become even as nil until purified in Saturn’s fires.”
“Soul Life: It´s all about Soul Growth: The irritants that come and go in our lives are in fact opportunities to create pearls for eternity.”
“Life on Soul growth, that I think you want to know the pearl, how does the oyster make that beautiful thing by an irritant, going way way back to the ancient Egyptians who used the dung beetle as an example for resurrection and life renewal they knew dung was going to happen but the dung beetle rolls its dung towards the light The Morning Sun plants a seed in it and by high noon that is smoking hot and that seed bursts forth with new life. Depth psychologist will tell you in the biggest challenges in the biggest weaknesses in you come your potential for your greatest strengths. The Pearl proves that, that which is an irritant and the irritants that come and go in our lives, sometimes they’re within us, they are attitudes, they are patterns that we have to wrestle with sometimes there’s people that we have to share life with circumstances situations they’re actually in fact opportunities to create pearls for eternity by working around that irritant, working in gauging that situation and trying to make the most of it the best of it and that produces pearls for eternity, this is where incarnate life is filled with opportunities for soul growth.”
“There was the Lord. Edgar teaches the same thing, Jesus that teaches the same thing, even the psalm says: be still and know that I am God. In that stillness, in that going in you make the connection to the source of your life, so a lot of dynamics of quiet time, reflection, meditation, pausing for intuition, inner listening, these things tap into another resource for you to use in growing and making applicable, wiser decisions when dealing with other people, that pause, that inter mission from physicality, we always think you know doing you know got to be doing something well doing is important up in doing but if you don’t come back and go within you can just keep doing to you burn out completely or we suck you dry like a fall leaf and
leave you by the side of the road, we will take everything you can give, you got to go back and renew yourself, reconnect, recenter and reflect on on the application of your use of doing
in activity out here, so you have to balance these two in your life in her work without outer service and activity.”

I’ve been using the GOTEK USB Floppy Emulator Simulator since the beginning of 2013 and they have never let me down.
Infinity Expression: 8.9.2019: Question answered…Gotek works with EMU 4000 T.
“hardware samplers are super cheap these days”
Indeed EMU price in my days were 1250 Euros.
Main Weakness of EMU is the Display…after 10, 12, 15 or 20 years..the display becomes mush…Mush-Display…EMU was not made for Eternity.

“The Atari ST Story | Nostalgia Nerd
Nostalgia Nerd: Am 26.09.2016 veröffentlicht.
The Atari ST is a machine which emerged in 1985 and immediately went head to head with the Amiga 1000. The Atari ST is known for Games, music, desktop publishing and in a lot of cases, being a poorer version of the Amiga, but that’s not always the case, and to begin with the ST outsold the Amiga by a fair margin. It comes in many forms, The Atari STFM, Atari STE, even the follow up, the Atari Falcon. In this video we’ll explore them all, along with Atari ST Games, Atari ST Music and the story of Commodore, Atari, Tramel Technology and the man himself, Jack Tramiel, who left Commodore, bought Atari and went head to head with his former company in the epic 80s battle of the first 16 bit home computers.
Reasons to watch;
80s Computers, Atari and Amiga, the 16 bit era, if you want to learn more about Atari or Amiga in the 80s, if you want some Atari ST demos, if you’re looking for an Atari documentary or just an Atari ST review. It’s all here, on Nostalgia Nerd.
