MATRIXSYNTH: bleepology

Tuesday, November 11, 2008


It turns out bdu aka Brandon Daniel started a new blog called bleepology.

The Hello World posted on Nov 6:
"You needed another synth-blog, didn’t you? Of course you did.

I’ve been a content-generator [] for these things since before any of the synth-blogs existed, so I figured it’s time to stop tossing my stuff their way to be posted with very little context, and post it here instead (where it will then be picked up and read by the majority of it’s consumers elsewhere). But, with luck, there will be a bit more context available.

I don’t have a whole lot of spare time, so if you see a post here, it’s probably something I made/photographed/recorded myself and felt like sharing, rather than something I dug up elsewhere.

I’m writing this, but I know it’s unlikely anyone will read it for awhile, but it felt right to make a “first post!” sort of thing. Booga booga!"

I think you'll get a few reads out of this post. :) Go check it out people.

As for some fun with dates. started in 2001. MATRIXSYNTH.COM? 1997. :)

A quick note on MATRIXSYNTH the blog for anyone interested. I started it in 2005 as a more efficient way of tracking everything synth. The original site was becoming a bit too difficult to manage and it didn't account for the type of things I wanted to link to. A blog by it's original definition was a site that only linked to others, but has meshed into various things over the years and has more commonly become a place to share your thoughts. I try to stay true to the original meaning and I try to keep my thoughts out of it. Why? MATRIXSYNTH isn't about me, it's about what's out there in the world of synths just as the original site was. I also want people to experience what's out there free from my influence or opinion, hence why I rarely interject my comments. Why am I doing it in this post? I thought it was a good opportunity to give some insight into what this site is about vs others in light of bdu's hello world, and because it could be easy to misread. Please note I do not take offense to bdu's comments, far from it. I don't see it as offensive but rather an observation of what that site will be, and I'm looking forward to what will go up over time just as I look forward to all of the other sites I visit. Also its worth nothing that Brandon has given me permission to post things many times. I always do my best to link to the source sites for more info and/or credit.


  1. Just a note, none of what I wrote was intended to be a dig on anyone else, just an outline of why it exists (to add context to content I generate), and an acknowledgement that most people will still read that content here rather than on my site, but hopefully with that extra context intact.

    Also, I expect this will make my NAMM show coverage a bit more useful...

  2. Yeah, I didn't read it that way at all bdu. :) I updated the post to make it more clear. You never know what people think.

  3. matrix I've been wanting to tell you how much I appreciate this site, it's the first one I visit each day.
    I had a personal blog which was an outlet for my writings and personal thoughts but the strain of coming up with new posts became very draining to the point I felt burned out and deleted it. So I know how hard it can be to continually post new things, but somehow you always have new and interesting posts.
    Once again thank you for the work and effort you put into this site each day.

  4. Thanks Top Cat. I appreciate it. It does take a lot of time and work.
