    That's a good start, thanks Jules, and congrats for your appearence in Billboard.

    Hey, everybody, Jules is a London-based producer with many hits under his belt, and we're honored to have him here. Say "Waahhssuup" to Jules, everybody!

    So, Jules, what ARE the two optional extras of which you speak that will expand the VS into the ProTools realm? Is one of them the Digi001 card, and the other a MIDI interface? Just guessing here, so please clarify! :)

    Jules in DA HOUSE,
    Yo Curve, and the Roland gang here! Big greetings from the UK!
    The Roland guy at the AES in Amsterdam this May described 2 seperate boxes (?) made by Roland that allow an AES transfer from the NEW 24 track Roland - to Pro Tools (or any other AES input DAW interface)

    This is both a pain (2 boxes!) and a boon, because enough of you Roland VS looneys DO GREAT WORK ON THOSE DAMN THINGS! And when it gets to be transfer and mix time at my place (PT) it is a real PITA to transfer tracks 4 at a time (2 spdif and 2 Lightpipe) from a VS1880!
    Keep up the great work on those wierd and wonderfull devices!

    :)

    Yo Jules,

    Thanks for the update! It's boo-cool to know that we have "Our Man In Euro-Land" on top of the situation. Yeah, 2 boxes to...to do what? Oh, yeah, ProTools. Ya know, I'm getting the PTLE rig very soon. Track transfers will be 4 at a time, seeing as I'm tracking to the VS880EX, oh well, I'll just have to make it fun some how. Yes, one can concievably create some phunked-up recordings on the VS. It's like any other recording medium: some will rock with it, and most will wank with it. You wanna be in the catagory of folks who rock with it.

    I procrastinated for a long time on experimenting with the editing features of the VS. I had been just tracking away on it like it was a traditional analog multitrack. Just the other day, however, I was listening to one of my tracks and said to myself, "Self! That vocal phrase in the 2nd chorus would sound killer in the outro!" It was a good excuse to finally dive into the editing side. So I got out the old manual, and BLAMMO! Done. And it DID sound killer in the outro, the intro, and like 6 other places in the song. Suddenly, I'm going over all of the tunes for my upcoming CD and copy/pasting bits and pieces of tracks all over the damn place with the Track Copy feature. Once ya get it down, it's a snap, and loads of fun at that. You can always hit undo if ya don't nail it, but timing mistakes can create unexpectedly cool results. I accidentally pasted an orchestral bit a measure too early to a part of one song, and left it that way because it created a nice variation to the original sequence. That gave me the idea to copy random bits of tracks to random places in the song, and then copy the combinations of edits repeatedly to create hooks, and the results have become totally absurd, but sublime at times. I'm a big fan of artists like Warhol, Man Ray and Duscamp, so I'm really digging the work environment that digital sequencing provides right now. The notion of exporting these experiments to ProTools for further destruction is making me drool a bit. I'm not even sure I care so much about how efficient the file transfer operations are because I'm so entralled by the artistic possiblilties, but I can imagine that if you are a studio operator you would. Does that make sense?

    Yo, give ME a break, dude! I'm just a corner-boy here in the meanstreets of downtown Chill-adelphia. Melbourne...OK OK - I'll add that to my geographic vocabulary starting now. "London 2 Sydney" just sounded good, ya know what I mean? 130km - how does that translate to miles? Where are you, exactly, if ya don't mind me asking?

    LOL
    Well 160KM is about 100 miles so without staining the brain too much I'll take a stab at 85ish. Small town (about 6000) called Leongatha, which is an Aboriginal word that has something to do with green grass. Big dairying area.
    All adds up to a tranquil place to make music LOL.

    Doesn't green grass have an altogether different connotation in OZ?

    Hello Julian,

    I was listening to old cassettes the other day, tapes of old bands I used to be involved with in my hometown of Montreal, demos of friends' bands, people I've completely lost touch with (I now live in New York).
    Anyway, I came across a tape by The Pleasure Toys, a Montreal-based band formed by Robert Andrew, circa 1986-87, with a single called "The Pleasure Trend" on it. Sure enough, there's mention of your name as the producer of that track.
    When I saw your name on this post, I instantly recognised it and made the conncetion, 14 years after meeting with Robert and first hearing their music, which in retrospect, was pretty damn good.

    Life is cool....

    So, hello and goodbye from Brooklyn!

    Patrick,

    Jules has produced many great artists, among them Siouxie And the Banshees, who I idolize and luv to dance to. I, too, am honored by Jules' presence here.

    By the way, Patrick, will we see you at Javitz Centre for the AES meeting in September? Julian and myself and other distinguished collegues will be there. Let's hook up.

    Hi Eric,

    I myself am a big Cure/Siouxsie fan, and I remember listening to "cities in dust" and thinking that JS had produced that track. Cool...

    Well, I'd love to attend AES, but since I'm not "pro" yet, I have no way of getting passes. I'm just assuming that's how these conventions work. If I'm mistaken and can attend, then yes, it would be great to meet you and chat.

    Patrick,

    It's by doing things like going to AES meetings and the like to edumacate yourself that you eventually become "pro." For the record, I don't have "passes" to the NYC AES meeting, either, but that doesn't mean I won't be attending. Contact AES and say, "Yo, what do I gotta do to get service here?" I've lined up a crib to crash at for the entire weekend, and I have no idea how I'm getting into Javitz. I'll crash the f*cker if I have to, or bullsh*t my way in. It'll be my first time attending an AES meeting, and truth be told: I didn't even know what "AES" stood for a few months ago, but I found out, and I'm going. I just found out a couple of weeks ago that I won the ASCAP Composer Award for the 3rd year straight, and I'm in no mood to take "no" for an answer from anybody.

    So, ya wanna crash a party with the Curve? We got 2 months to come up with a game plan...email me for further assistance.
