    james replied to a thread Clown Core in The Lounge
    There is a band from right here in my home town of Akron Ohio called The Acid Cats that are keys, bass, drums, trumpet and tenor sax. What they do with time, meter and composition is off the hook. I've seen them live several time over the years and they just keep getting better. I would say that a...

    I think what Too Many Zooz are doing is interesting. They call it Brass House.

    I have often said that just about everything in music was done by about 1980 or so. All popular music since then is just a rehash of stuff from the early sixties to about 1980. I often wondered where could music go? What is left to do? Well look up Clown Core on youtube.

    Gave this a whirl the other night and followed your instructions. I managed to get the laser a little brighter but I think I overdid it at the start as the laser would shut down, turn on, shut down in 1 second cycles. I powered it down and backed off on the variable resistor and all seems to be...

    I have largely replaced my flexmods with lasertack drivers. Yes, they are certainly not the cheapest but damn, they are rock solid. I would agree, flexmods are on the way out. Yeah they work but they'll be phased out through attrition.

    Home at last. All the parts needed to build the CYGN-B have been mustered. Also, a real unpopulated CYGN-B board has been made available for reference. Also the stereo DACs for the C64 to poduce DOGN signal are here. Any shipments waiting my invite now have it.

    Queens! That's even further than Delaware, LOL, though the tie-in with NY and LSO would be cool. I added a channel to the SELEM Discord server for real-time discussion of new location ideas, if anyone wants to use it. I'm pretty sure most SELEM attendees have access to the server already since...

    Hi, I have been given a few nice big bounce mirrors with screws for adjustment but they have been stored in a damp environment so the mirrors have gotten black spots from corrosion. Would it be possible to just get new mirrors and glue them on top of the old ones? What kind of mirrors and...

    Do you really need to use a DPSS laser? You could get a modern green diode and get rid of the problem!

    Love that old-school vibe... Glass tubes are sexy! :) That being said, my wife is unlikely to allow me to have any more ion lasers in the house. Seems she's still salty about the hole in the couch from 12 years ago... Remember: always use an appropriate beam block when firing an HGM5...

    Ugh - reminds me of a show I did outside of DC. Was able to keep the rain out of the Lexel 95 supply, but not out of the temporary 3-phase distribution panel we had set up. Blew a breaker in the middle of the show and got bit trying to reset it. 208 hurts! I understand the appeal of this...

    A wonderful new addition to the Vintage Laser Archive is this pristine 1980 Florod Xenon ion plasma tube, donated by Mr. Robert Smith. He took it out of a system in the early '80s and kept it on the wall ever since. Way to go Robert! Best packing job I've seen!!! I wonder how many other "man...

    Ah man so awesome, thank you. I'll give it a try tonight when I get home. As I bought the 3 scanners for £15 they all needed something sorting on them so for now it's a learning process to see how it all works. I'll eventually dump these in the not-so-distant future and get something that's...

    Without knowing the current rating you really canít adjust the pots. for 100.00 you can buy a new rgb module and dump all that. Just keep the scanners and case. Trust me you will be much happier. That said, if you want to play, just donít go much more than 2/3 of the brightness pot. Leave...

    Stay away from the flexmod. Why build on something unobtainium. If something goes wrong your in trouble. Those simple drives are supported and really good. Not saying the flexmod is bad. It was my preferred for years.

    Until fairly recent, actual 'blue' was the more expensive while Blu-ray (405nm) is cheap but to our eyes not very bright... from your pic my guess is that you have a violet laser (405nm) and not an actual blue.<br> most makers set the outputs below the max for a longer life. AND slight...
