Thank you for today’s laugh! :D
But hang on, don’t you think Mr Bladder has a bit of a point?
Back in Conny's day you had to be very clever and imaginative to get interesting sounds and at the same time be unique and individual, simply because there were less black boxes off the shelf to press the presets on. Now those skills have been devalued because a lot of sounds are so easy to get these days. Want a reverse piano? Back then you had to record it, and play it backwards on a tape machine.
Phasing? You’ll need three tape machines, and there were no loopers then, apart from tape loops!
The result of all this was that you stood a good chance of doing something unique, as everyone wasn’t using the same gear, and everyone did it in a slightly different way.
