No shit! I didn't really know any of that. I've gotta see if I can find pictures of the Behringer Concentration Labor Camp!

I'ma watch your video after dinner... this guy has popped up in my feed a good bit, he's got some good tips but jesus is he a douche. Hardcore 'comic book guy' fedora vibes, to my taste.

It wasn’t so much that they treated employees like shit, they are actually pretty good jobs for China, it was more of massive the scope of their operation was and how single minded their control over every aspect of the manufacturing was. It did seem a bit Orwellian even though they were not like sweat shop jobs or any thing.

the three music subreddits I check every morning are like 80% scrabbling, panicking about synth clones coming out of those building. For like two years straight.

Found a BOSS OS-2 on FB Marketplace for $50. Excited to beef up my sound a little bit.
I have a Beheringer copy for about $20. Works well enough except it has a bit of obnoxious background hum that the boss one probably doesn’t have. Mine was used though so it might be fucked up.
Those Beheringer copies are pretty solid from what I hear. I didn't even think to look for once, I just saw the Boss and this one is used and looked banged up from the picture but I'm looking forward to it. I downgraded my amp from a Crate halfstack to a Line 6 Spider just to save some space but the gain channels on the Spider don't sound great at all and I think the OS-2 will help me get the shape and depth I'm looking for.
Behringer clones have slowly become as controversial as Trump in my world. I think so long as you are not 100% relying on VSTs or your iPhone you are barking up the right tree. I've never really investigated their pedals, I'm sure there's compare/contrast videos on Youtube... their synth clones are very tempting though, I almost bought a few this year before I remembered it would be insanely irresponsible and I'd probably have to hide it from my family.
They make such a huge amount of products they will have some gems mixed with in a lot of garbage. Allegedly an extremely cheap mixing board of theirs can be used to really good effect with guitar recoding:




I wish I could find it again but there used to be some videos on YouTube where someone shows their factory. There is a entire city dedicated to making Behringer with military style barracks’s for the employees. They assemble everything in house point to point including pulping their own wood for speaker cones. They have employees who literally turn tuning pegs on guitars for 8 hours a day.
Thanks for sharing this! I've been into gear and recording videos a lot lately so this is right up my alley.

The big Behringer dustup over the Keystep is the first one that has me questioning whether I should purchase anything they make again. The only Behringer stuff I own is a mixer and the Neutron, but was very excited about the MonoPoly. When they unveiled the Swing it kinda soured things for me. I appreciate that they're cloning vintage synths and making them affordable, but this seemed hostile.

I drink The Bu kombucha.....ginger peach is my jam. Suddenly it started tasting like pencil shavings. I sent them a message complaining that they sent out a bunk batch. They promised me free coupons.

Nothin.

You gotta write again and in a much more pissed-off tone this time. They might send you twice as many coupons!

Im imagining 8 year old riley in a gang of little 1930s street toughs, who dance and sing songs like "Dont have time for that" and "Letter writing sissy boy"

Had some franks on my Indian last night. Didn’t notice any difference...

Simple Buffalo sauce recipe I’ve used for a few years:

-cup of franks
-half stick of butter
-few dashes garlic powder
-splash white/apple cider vinegar
-as much red cayenne as you can handle

Whisk all to a boil and start dousing whatever is in the fridge 🍗

Had to replace the gasket and other hardware on the guest bathroom toilet today (it's where I do my best shidding) and person that most recently worked on that motherfucker did a dickhead job. No metal washer between the head and the rubber washer on the inside, no rubber washer on the outside of the tank. Floored. Amazed it lasted it long as it did without leaking.

Picked a bunch of grapefruit (trash) and lemons (rad) off our trees; our fuckin orange tree is taking its sweet ass time and I'm losing patience fast.

my crib has unbelievably hard water and all those little bits have been blowing out of my tank at a worryingly fast pace. Like odd things... have a complex water test coming up, to get real numbers for things.... #pray4jame

really just hoping the water heater isn't slowly turning into a concrete cylinder inside, doubt I could fill it with vinegar to descale it

His posts are valuable and his work is arguably (arguably) more valuable. It occurred to me today that if I changed the point at which threads are paginated, it might kill Necrometer.

Thoughts?

It’s more like the crazy guy I talked to 10 years ago about how his ex girlfriend graphed his face onto videos of child porn is now a reality.
