I've been going through all of the patches on my Virus TI2 and using my web app to keep track of the ones I like. 200, so far, and I'm only through the "O's" in the Pad category. Phew! A lot of the patches are very idiosyncratic and/or distracting, but some of them are just amazing. Cremoma HS is my favorite so far.

OK, define "weird," I know, but I just don't feel like I have time or head space to seek out much more than what stillstream.com offers. I am always rewarded in some way by listening to that station and often learn something, such as when mike metlay's daughter performs during her Mystery Bubble shows. Such elegant simplicity (but don't tell her).
Anyway, how do you dj types spread your attention around so…Continue
