chuck them in the dishwasher then dry with hair dryer seriously though i use a tepid water an baby shampoo mix then rinse with distilled water
Oh, and then leave them to drain in a plate rack ;)
These won’t clean records properly. You need a wet cleaner, like the Knosti Disco Antistat, which can be had for around £50 for the mk. 1 on Amazon. Otherwise, you’re just rubbing the crap back into the grooves. Even a microfibre cloth, used with soapy water and wiped round the grooves, then rinsed with clean water will clean better- and yes, fellow purists, we make our own fluid using distilled water, etc, but not everyone want to invest the time in that!

Sorry for delayed response! https://gearspace.com/ is a good site for various die-hard synth fanatics and arguments :-) The Virus TI2 was the last of line, it was more powerful than the TI - basically gave you more grunt for more effects and poly. The debate on what's best is never ending. I've heard good things about Waldorf Kyra although I haven't checked all the specs. The Nord Lead series also has a large fanbase. There's just been such a big shift towards plugins which can do infinite (depending on your CPU!) instruments and effects, all the efforts seem to go toward that now. I like a hands-on approach and I love my Virus! it's a got a generally dark tone to it, lovely. 8)
Cheers for the info. I`m old skool so learning a new synth isn`t a problem (hell i even learned to program the DX7 back in the day ;) when all analogue was starting to sound the same) and midi patching etc is second nature so no bother there. Been out of the scene way too long and really fancy something a bit special, but the more i read about the current mid range synths the more i get put off. Typical examples the matrix brute, polybrute and the virus. They look great, sound decent, but always have a dead stop on number of voices, outputs or interfaces, nobody seems to do the full package anymore. Kinda glad a kept my synchroniser rack for keeping the old kit in time. Need to find a decent user forum to get views from users and maybe hear a few more machines before spending the dough.
I recently bought a Access Virus TI2 from Juno, good price and arrived very quickly. they're getting harder to find at the moment I think because of the pandemic - a lot of places have them on order with long lead times. I think the TI2 originally came out in 2011 and there's a lot of chatter on the interwebs about the fact it looks like support for the Mac software has ended... this was posted in Octover 2019 on thier site: --------- The current version of the Virus TI software suite is not 100% compatible with macOS 10.15 Catalina. What does that mean? Our preliminary tests with the final version of Catalina show that Virus Control opens and MIDI works but audio transport from and to the Virus TI doesn't work. Also, the core audio driver doesn't transport audio, so you cannot use the Virus as an audio interface for e.g. itunes. Furthermore, as previously announced, Virus Control Center doesn't work anymore and there will be no replacement for the forseeable future. We will posts news and up-to-date compatibility statements once available. --------- I think Windows users are safe for the moment. That said, if you're into DAWLess stuff and like a bit of MIDI cable fiddling then there's no problem :-) I've not been using the TI2 for long, it's the most complicated synth I've owned... I wouldn't say it's immediately intuitive as such but once you get the knack of the menu system it's fine. That said there's thousands of presets onboard so you could just tweak those!
No worries. I ended up getting a DM6 so I can get a Minilogue a lot sooner, but I wondered what if how much difference is between the mini and mini xd? Anyway, @HisDudeness is the expert here and could answer those Q's too ;)
Sorry bud haven't been on the site for a couple of days so missed your post. Unfortunately I don't have any experience of the deepmind (despite checking it out a few times on YouTube). I'm all old gear, korg, sequential circuits, kawai, oberheim, roland and ensoniq based. Most recent acquisitions were the td3's, a couple of craves and an ik synth. But was looking at a few new poly synths instead of having to chain a load of monos ;) Hisdudeness looks to have you covered on the DM12 though. How is the DM for programming sounds? Is it from basic waveform up? Or from sample waveforms? Does it do omni mode? Suitable for trance hcore? Is it worth getting the keyboard version over the module? Bearing in mind I have an EPS sampler with full velocity keyboard.

Juno Records free tracks Advent CaledarFREE£0.01
Did this last year and got some decent tracks. Free track download every day from now until 24th
WAV. It's huge but lossless and should play pretty much anywhere. You can then always convert to something appropriate for where you are playing it. Or go straight for FLAC or ALAC both of which are smaller but still lossless, but might not be supported on older hardware.
What's the best quality file type?
thx OP, heat!
Juno gave been doing this a few years now and always have a couple of Jungle/DnB tracks

I have one of these. Good to have beside the deck for quick access. I tend to pull 20-30 albums out from the shelves, put them in this, listen to them for a month, then swap for another batch of 20-30. Less daunting than looking at a wall of hundreds of cover spines!
Oddly as shellac is a super-cooled liquid, storing upright, over time, would result in shellac leaching down... I'd read to store vinyl flat, but no more than 20 deep to prevent groove compression... As i've got over 2000LPs, this isn't practicable and so they are stored in IKEA units. Well, they are in large plastic boxes now whilst we redecorate but still...
Never store vinyl in any position but standing vertical. Pass.
