You guys ever seen the International Space Station fly over? Tonight's a good opportunity for us eastern yanks:

Just plug in your zip code & that site splains it. It's best if you find a dark place away from street lights & such.

Huh. I seen it twice last week and it was in the sky for more than five minutes both times.

And like, if EP decides to watch it this Tuesday evening @ 7:42:11 PM PDT, he will enjoy maximum brightness and an excellent veiwing duration of 6:23, which is probably about as good as it gets.

Unless marine layer fog gets him.

Or Florida, man. Was that this week?

I am returned, from Florida, man. Thankfully, I didn't witness any Florida Man while I was in Florida. Man.

There's a very groovey live feed from the ISS:

I always found it went down well with a bottle of ginger wine, codine and rossini's Sabat Mater.

One out of three isn't too bad. :grin:

Behringer poly? Sounds cool?

Cool, so another probable lower budget analog poly on the market. DCOs but sounds pretty good so far and more capable than the Minilogue at first glance (looks like more than one LFO, some nice pan-per-voice options, and maybe better FX for a start).

(But who knows, not much is revealed in these teaser videos. Deliberately so, tailor designed to get people arguing over it at Gearslutz etc. :lol: )

That does sound like a proper analog synth doesn't it?

If it's under 500 dollars, I'll never say a bad word about Behringer again. :jam:



Ok, so I saw that Metro went to GS to post about it, but didn't even bother posting here? Captain has abandoned the ship?

I also saw he has a Hugh Laurie icon there. So who's got the mancrush now? huh? huh?

Alright, but it's missing an octave. A proper poly must have five.

And NO WHEELS plx.

I feel kinda good about this and am cautiously optimistic !

paired with a matrix brute it might make a decent lil analog setup
