  1. Vinyl is not a nice material and should be abolished. The sound of vinyl recordings is inferior to digital recordings. I can’t understand why people want low dynamics and noise

    1. I always hated vinyls growing up and can’t imagine ever going back to listening to music in that format. But some people seem to like it I guess.

    2. It’s for the convenience, I can be working in my garden listening to vinyl, or working out at the gym listening to vinyl or driving in my car listening to vinyl or hiking in the mountains listening to vinyl um no one said ever lol. I grew up with vinyl and the only reason I would want my record collection today is so I could sell them all to the vinyl zealots lol.

      1. Man, all you poor snowflakes were really triggered by this one, huh? My deepest condolences over the extreme hurt vinyl’s continued relevance has caused you.

        Some people enjoy listening to music on vinyl. Some have enjoyed it for decades. Some have enjoyed it for a year. Some people listen to vinyl at home, and digital elsewhere. Some people even like tapes! The good news is that you may continue to enjoy listening to music in whichever medium you choose. Now take a deep breath, and put your internet device away.

  2. i can’t imagine anything more droll and boorish than moog and vinyl together.

    i’m getting so tired of all this crap looking backwards, wake up people!

  3. what a shame. a total sausage feast. perhaps moog uk should get with the program of the US company and make a bit more effort.

    as for vinyl recordings of moog performances being boring. one wonders why you would be here if you thought such a thing. Ciani’s recent release of 1978 buchla performance on vinyl is utter heaven every time i listen.

  4. this used to be a community of forward looking, creative people, sadly it seems to be dying and becoming a community of vintage fetishists where very rarely is anything new seen.

  5. It’s a medium that degrades over time. The very process of the needle on the surface of vinyl has a wearing effect no matter how carful you are. Digital will keep the same quality indefinitely.

  6. I bought VCMGs album Ssss and I got vinyl and CD versions. What I like is the artwork, full sized, gatefold, great to look at. It’s also great to hold and touch and fun to cue up the next track on another deck after sorting through the collection. Not the same tactile and visual experience with digital (which I also have after ripping lossless quality from the Cds). I also feel I’m doing a bit extra to support artists I love.

    There’s also a better sense of ownership. You can look over at your vinyls and see them. Digital just sits on a hard drive being highly convenient but boring.

    Just how I feel about it, your mileage may vary 🙂

  7. I was always frustrated with vinyl. Before CDs became available, I would by a vinyl record, clean the platter and stylus, open the record carefully, put it on the turntable carefully, cue up the Nakamichi cassette deck with a new ME cassette tape and start it rolling, drop the needle, and record that first side. Repeat, spin, fold for the b side. Ideally, I would only have to do this once and be able to put the record back in its sleeve to never be taken out again. A hassle and rarely was there a record that didn’t have some audible flaw.

    With CDs, NONE of this was necessary. For the first time, I felt like I was hearing what the artist was hearing in the recording studio and the mastering studio. It was like magic to me. I never looked back.

    Now, if you just must have all of that his, surface noise, crackles, pops (oh, and did I mention the very limited dynamic range and the EQ curves needed in the final master tape to fit it within that limited dynamic range of analog tape and vinyl?), why not invest in a high-quality turntable and cartridge, a good audio interface, and use something like Garage Band (free and included with every Mac), or Audacity and capture that vinyl record in all of its noisy glory, at a high bit rate and depth, save it in a lossless format and have all of the convenience of digital and all of the, whatever, of vinyl?

  8. It’s about the process, the ritual, the jacket with the liner notes and pictures, Also, you hear all that the artist put together in the sequence intended. Digital is for everywhere, vinyl (obsolete) is for when you stop and listen. It is interesting to hear a music community so committed to analog argue so strongly for digital.

  9. All of the arguing is just one persons view vs another. There are a variety of mediums to record and enjoy music with. Different mediums have different capabilities and the fighting seems to arise over failure to see variety as a boon. It is the lack of variety that is boring not the the medium you don’t prefer.
