  • i am of the belief that OM has one dope-ass “viewer” who isn’t a crazed Soul Coughing fan (props elle)
  • i am of the belief that this is the best quote i have heard in a while: “I think the absolute accuracy and regularity of digital systems detracts from an aspect of the sound that is pleasing and comfortable to our ears. I like analogue sound better, but I’m sure that as time goes on and digital systems get better, you’ll be able to simulate those pleasing imperfections and uncertainties. Right now I don’t think that anyone really knows how to sufficiently make an accurate enough model so that an informed listener could not tell the difference. I don’t think there’s a digital system in existence that would fool anybody in a side by side comparison.” -Bob “God of Analog” Moog
