Harmless 2010 – Image Line’s Christmas Present

Although I also work with other music software, Image Line’s FLStudio is my favourite DAW. Now they’ve almost given away their new synth: Harmless.

Harmless is an additive synthesizer doing subtractive synthesis. Or if you prefer, a subtractive synthesizer powered by an additive synthesis engine.

Until the end of the year customers can decide for themselves what Harmless is worth to them, so you can go to their online shop and fill in every amount you are willing to spend with a minimum of $ 9 – the amount they need to cover the transfer costs.
Probably because I’m Dutch (why deny it) I’m also very stingy, so I offered only $ 1 (+ 9 = $10) for this beautiful synth. It sounds like a confession, which it actually is, but hey, I don’t think they expected me to offer more, did they?
Anyway, thanks Image-Line, for building FLStudio and for the great gift.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
