I never had an interest in performing, film/game scoring, selling albums or whatever most pursuits here are. My journey in music has been one of understanding and experimentation. I stand at the intersection of music and technology and observe all I can and when I have the opportunity I share what Iíve learned.

For the last seven years this forum has been a primary opportunity for me to assist others on their journeys. Now Iíd like to announce I will no longer attend to this forum. Who cares, right? Right, so let me enumerate some reasons why I wonít be missed:

I read the first post to make sure I understand the needs of the OP.
I read the replies to ensure Iím not repeating whatís already been said.
If I canít speak with sufficient knowledge on a subject I shut the fuck up.
Just because Iíve invested the time to read and understand the thread does NOT entitle me to post in it.
If Iím not sure about a claim or fact in my post then I look it up.
When I am wrong, I own up to it.
When someone else is wrong, I call them on it.
If someone asks a stupid question or gives poor advice, I berate and ridicule them to negatively reinforce their behaviour.
I donít overwhelm people. I keep my posts short but I'm always ready with more info to give when needed.
I donít over generalise (or write guides). People come to a forum for advice tailored to their specific needs and thatís precisely the most helpful advice I can offer.
Despite whatever credentials or experience I claim to have or how much effort I put into crafting advice, I accept that no one has to listen to me.

Whether thatís all genuine introspection or a veiled plea to those who try to help is an exercise to the reader. But in the end I am content to let the blind lead the blind for whatever void my absence creates.

On a lighter note, I give my sincere thanks to all of you who have been willing to listen and all of you who have had good information to impart. And if you have an interest in the cutting edge of music tech or music hackery, Peter Kirn of CreateDigitalMusic (http://createdigitalmusic.com) is developing a new site, Noisepages (http://www.noisepages.com), which you're welcome to come chat/blog on along with me (http://analoq.noisepages.com/).

cheers.

do you mean to say you retire from the OCR message boards? or simply this forum?

Despite what you say, you will indeed be missed by me at the very least.

Aw, sadness. I've been rather entertained by your posts for the short time I've been here (even though the only one addressing me was a hostile one about voting for yourself... lol). Hopefully I'll see you around in the compos on R:TS, but if not, sorry to see you go.

Ok i'm going to assume from this that you mean solely this forum and not the whole site, since there is a little confusion I think as bgc noted.

Anyway, see you round dude :D

I think the only dialogue I ever had with analoq in the forums had to do with masturbation and the witnessing thereof. :-P Still, analoq is pretty much the reason I make remixes now, so it's a bit saddening to see him leaving the forum (or forums - not quite sure on that).

This particular forum section just got a lot less informed.

Who am I gonna check my analogue tape facts with now?

The remixing/workshop forum specifically, but that happened to be the only part of the board I was in the habit of following. So, I don't really know what my participation will be henceforth.

Is there a reason for this? You sound angry.
Not angry, just curmodgeonly.

ive been breaking all your rules :(
Tu was du willst, you are exempt.


Thank you all for the appreciative words, I have the utmost respect for you guys.

It's always sad to see someone go, especially a long-timer like yourself. All the best.

peace out. i hope you come back at one point so we can call you wishy-washy or some other stupid shit and secretly just be happy you're around again, but you probably won't.

unfortunately. workshop just got a lot dumber.

Why did you spell my name differently?

For some reason this is what I thought of:

Johnny Ringo: And you must be Doc Holliday.
Doc Holliday: That's the rumor.
Johnny Ringo: You retired too?
Doc Holliday: Not me. I'm in my prime.
Johnny Ringo: Yeah, you look it.

Which leads me to believe...

analoq will be back when it's time to bring down the thunder, and hell will be coming with him?
