The Toronto Star fact-checked Trump's statements over the last six weeks of the election. He lied 560 times.

It shouldn't be necessary to say this, but the Confederacy was led by traitors who made war on their own country because they wanted to practice slavery. They accomplished nothing else, they are famous for nothing else. These racists committed the greatest act of treason in U.S. history, yet Republicans think they should be celebrated. That tells you everything there is to know about the hypocrisy of modern conservatism, and its sickening indifference to racism.

Electronic music — DIY music production

Here you can watch it being 'performed'. YouTube's encoder made the bass drum sound like a Lacrosse ball bouncing inside a dryer, but I guess it still works. The song is about two minutes too long, but that's hindsight for you:

‘Cruzeiro’

This is my first EMX-1 track:

This machine has a ribbon controller that gets overlooked by many users. In this track I used it to play a pretty decent 'solo', if I do say:

Notification Sounds

I created these WAV files many years ago for use as nthClock alarm sounds. Most sounds are from the Alesis Micron, though a few bits come from the soft synth that was bundled with Cakewalk's SONAR back then.

These are designed to be played once or in a loop:
