[Muzaq] Roland Aira TR8 vs. Roland TR808

Berlin based producer Alexander Krüger aka Dub Taylor aka Tigerskin aka Korsakow put his diligent fingers on the just released Roland Aira TR8. As he also got a MIDI’fied original 808, his comparison is kinda helpful for all ppl considering this device as a much cheaper alternative.

The video has not been shot with professional equipment, but with a consumer iPhone. Alex’ is music producer, not a video artist. And yes, we know the soundquality of an iPhone video ain’t outstanding, but it is definitely sufficient to get a basic understanding of what is soundwise close to the original and what is not.

Check Alex’ short comparison after the break – exclusively ;-) Continue reading

[OSX86] Building a Hackintosh with ProQ’s AnyOS Motherboard

motherboard back


With all those different Apple Computers available like Mac Mini’s, Mac Book Air’s, Mac Pro’s, why the hell should we consider setting up a hackintosh these days, since a Mac Mini comes at a price tag of only 600€ here in Europe?

Well the answer to this is quite simple. Hackintoshs aim at people who are basically interested in understanding and tweeking. If you just wanna use you Mac for Mails and a bit of internet-surfing a hackintosh is most likely the wrong thing for you.

But if you are artist for instance, dealing with audio- or video-editing a hackintosh definitely comes a lot more handy than an original Mac. The reason is simple: original Macs have become a lot less flexible when it comes to manual hardware upgrading during the last eight years. Let’s take the latest Mac Pro for instance. The design is still outstanding, but this design comes at the price that Apple entirely dropped the PCIe Bus architecture. What means, that we cannot use dedicated DSP, soundcards or videocards in that device anymore and need to switch to Firewire or Thunderbolt solutions. Which is an additional economical strain.

[Science] Die Geschichte der Welt vom Urknall bis heute

Für alle, die genauso begeistert davon sind, dass vor gut vier Wochen erstmals Gravitationswellen nachgewiesen werden konnten, aber im Physikunterricht qua Pubertät nie richtig aufgepasst haben, für die könnte auch diese kleine Dokumentation was sein, um mal die Grundlagen nachzulegen…

[Society] Wildfremde Menschen küssen sich zum ersten Mal

Bei Ronny im Kraftfuttermischwerk haben wir heute dieses wunderbare zum Frühling passende Video gefunden. Schon witzig, welche Koinzidenzen es manchmal so gibt ;-) Hintergrund ist wohl, dass die Filmemacherin Tatia Pilieva 20 Menschen ins Studio eingeladen hat, die sich vorher nicht kannten und dann knutschen durften. Das interessante ist wohl, dass Knutschen so aus dem Stehgreif doch nicht geht, weil Vertrauen, Nähe wissenschon etc. dann doch irgendwie erforderlich ist. Schaut mal rein. Wir fanden es jedenfalls suuuuper :-)

<PS> und im Nachgang stellt sich dann raus, dass das ne konzertierte Aktion einer Werbebude ist und die Leute allesamt gecastet wurden… naja… viraler Konstruktivismus in Anwendung eben… </PS>
