Hey Julian and Neil,

Thanks for the kind words, glad you both liked it.
Yeah, the backing track and vibraphone/oohs are from my Yamaha PSR-E413 (a
home keyboard, but does the trick most times). The lead sound is from the
Bristol Polysix run through Guitarix for the distortion. The patch is
fairly simple, six oscillators set to a pulse wave with a width of about
64-67% and each one slightly detuned, sent through a lowpass filter with a
cutoff at about 10 o' clock, resonance at about 9 o' clock and filter
tracking set to fully open. No velocity tracking (in keeping with the
spirit of the original Polysix).

The majority of the sound comes from the patch itself and how I set Bristol
to run on startup. The distortion is fairly easy to do: Cranking it up is
better. If you want, I can send you the patches off-list, not too sure if
guitarix is at all easy to control from the console though.

Also, while 386DX's version is rather admirable and I enjoyed it immensely,
I believe that this should get the crowning achievement for best worst

Thanks again,

Andrew.

Yes, a most excellent ruination which I like almost as much (take thi=

as a big complement!) as this - http://youtu.be/Ou5_ypX4_iw

[OT] I once made a 6hr road trip with only the 386DX album to listen
to - an experience I, and most especially my passengers, won't forget!<=
