> The new little Korg Monotron synth recently released looks so cute and the idea of an affordable (US$85!) MS 20 filter is great (even if it is modelled) but after seeing lots of photos of it on blogs like CDM I didn’t realise just how little it was until I saw this video:

> Wahoo! BOY is #1 at the NZ box office, against some strong competition eg Alice in Wonderland & Tame Your Dragon…. I went to the cast & crew screening of BOY a week or so ago and sat front & centre because the particular theatre the screening was in has a huge slap echo from anywhere past half way back. But it turns out that was the least of the problems – I kept noticing that as soon as any sound panned away from the centre it became kind of muffled & verby… WTF? I also noticed if a sound panned in from the side it would suddenly leap to the centre… That is NOT how we mixed it! The next day I catch up with one of the mixers and mention how weird it sounded. Guess what? This particular theatre has blown high frequency drivers on its left and right speakers and they haven’t gotten around to replacing them yet!!! OMFG!!!!! WTF!!!!!!! How can they even rent out a theatre under these circumstance? It’s like going to pick up a rental car & they forget to mention that it goes ok as long as you don’t turn any corners.. Shame on you PARAMOUNT THEATRE, Courtenay Place, Wellington. We didn’t spend 4 months of our lives and hundreds of thousands of dollars to make the film sound as good as possible to then have it decimated by your lack of maintenance…
Is there a hall of shame for picture theatres?

The Name change doesn’t effect the product, it effects the marketing. Same with the website change.
Thanks for trying to Feed Us a Dream, but what I need is a Product that works! Consistently. On All OS’s. Not a New Website and Name Change.”
