    z3ta is old and it would run on a fairly slow computer. it takes .scl files, which are from Scala (which is free and you can download 1000s of tuning files from their website) or make your own with it.
    Its good fun.

    Ok I've been away and had a think about this,
    Thanks everyone for videos and mixes, don't tell anyone but that's what i was really looking for when I started the thread.

    I still don't really see the distinctions mms is talking about. As i see it house and techno are defined by their 4/4 kicks. (when i say 4/4 by the way I mean the 4/4 kicks, of course 99.99% of 'dance' / club music / continuum stuff is in 4/4 time). If it doesn't have the 4/4 kick it's not techno, it's electro - right?

    Similarly if it's not got 4/4 kicks it can't be funky house, it must be dancehall or god knows what.
    Certainly I've never heard anything I'd consider 'house' that didn't use a 4/4 kick.
    Are these terms really so flexible? Have I got this completely twisted. I've read Energy Flash you know!

    i fucking despise 99.99% of all house and techno and electro coming from America and Europe (and 85% of South Africa).

    STUPID MUSIC FOR MINDLESS SHEEPLE.

    you know what the non dance music person says - "all sound same"? well they're fucking right. and always have been.

    regurgitated, swallowed again, digested and shat out so many times it has negative nutrition value, and sucks life energy from you when you listen.

    the barrage of this lifeless gray slush coming through the pipes each and every day makes me nauseus just thinking about it.

    a bunch of fucking retarded slaves. the tools that make and listen to this putrid fucking garbage.

    Hey! It sounds like you're describing all music ever!

    no.

    historically many many styles have been exempt from the 5% (or 0.001%) rule of mostly being rubbish: Indonesian Court Gamelan, Hindustani Classical, Congolese Rumba, etc, etc, etc.; and have all had very high qualitative standards. whatever the reason may be, whether state sanctioned hierarchies of the music establishment or simple honesty and rigor in the creative communities, you would be hard pressed to find much of any poorly put together shit which is a waste of time for everyone involved. (they may have their own problems, for instance the Indian Classical mafia which basically prohibits anyone not in their gang to perform or record - but if we are just talking quality, the vast majority of recordings and artists are top fucking notch.)

    and even in today's world, different scenes have drastically different quality to shit ratios.

    so no, i certainly was not describing "all music ever made".

    these days the staggering amount of vapid bullshit in house, techno and electro has so little value in it that i just might start listening to INDIE ROCK.

    because as derivative and equally devoid of creativity as that scene is, at least they are TRYING to pretend to possess a semblance of vitality.

    spent quite some time going through a ton of 12 inches recently, and nada, nothing, zilch. NOT A SINGLE THING worth a fucking damn.

    don't give a shit how you perceive what i say. because i am only calling a spade a spade. this is what i think, if it disagrees with some people's sensibilities and experience, tough mother fucking cookies.
