The Geofront.

I finally have a new studio computer.... a cheap, obsolete desktop PC. It's called the Geofront, referring to its mystical connection with anime and manga and music (did you know that Tachikoma is a conscious exploration of links between Japanese culture and Western music? True Story).

For most people it would be a down- or at best a cross-grade, but for me, the Geofront is a huge step Up. Remember, I started with a 5 gigabyte laptop with 128mb of RAM.... and that computer, the Black Ark, is still a functioning member of my studio.... especially if you need some ReBirth work done!

All I'm trying to point out is.... for 500$cdn you can get a complete music solution in a box. As for software, there's tons you can download illegally and legally, or you can buy a copy of Computer Music and get a whole soft studio on CD-r for 20$..... I'm not trying to diss on synth purchasers and purchases.... it's just that PCs are such good value for the dollar these days!!!

Computers are cool, but are they sexy?

Have you seen an un-sexy computer? Did I mention that picture is awesome?

Computers are full of porn so technically they are sexy.
