Hey All,

There's always seemed to be a lot of home recordists on list, judging by the
Chalkhill's Children compiliations, so I just wanted to ask if anyone has
any advice or suggestions about reducing latency when recording software
synths via MIDI?  I'm doing my own recording project and it's a *major*
stumbling block at the moment, since it's not consistent in when it decides
to cause problems or not.  There's not of advice online.  I'm on a PC.

Email me off-list, if you don't mind helping.

The Observer newspaper's Music Monthly supplement has a column by
Simon Armitage in which he pays a visit to a different second-hand
record shop and sees what treasures he can find.

In the most recent edition:

the shop owner tells him he once sold an XTC single for "four
grand" (which would be eight grand for those of you who prefer dollars).

So what single would this have been? And who spent that kind of money
on it?

My guess would be Science Friction 7" with a picture sleeve - but
even with that rarity, I'd be amazed if it went for #4000.

Any guesses?

If you want to know why there's no demo for the song, or why Andy
encourages everyone to "embrace failure," check out the XTCfans blog

The music business is a hammer to keep you pegs in your holes
But please don't listen to me, I've already been poisoned by this industry

Hopefully this isn't a duplicate post, but here are a couple videos
from Mike Keneally's Swindon show, with Mr. Gregory sitting in:
