nivoc tape

    i just got a copy of side a of nivoc's 'baba ganesh' tape. i've heard many good things about this tape, but i'm just giving it a first listen now.

    anyway, i'm interested in getting an mp3 of side b - pref in >= 160 kbps quality. can anyone sort me out?

    i'd be willing to trade mp3s of another psytrance tape i've got -- dj zen (montreal).

    you have the tape.. make the mp3 yourself (provided you have enough hd space).. or lend it to me and i'll make you an mp3 of both sides.

    i haven't had baba for years now. [​IMG]

    That is the biggest coincidence I have ever seen.

    For 6 months now I've had an mp3 of Baba Ganesh Side A that I found on WinMX. I found Side B from the same person, but was rudely disconnected 2 MB into the download. All this time, every chance I've got I check WinMX for Side B, to no avail. Which was so frustrating because the first 3 minutes of B sound even better than A!!

    Finally, last night I came across it at like 1:30 am! I queued it up and went to bed, then came straight to work this morning without checking for it. There's a good chance it came through, so if I have it you can email me at looped13@hotmail.com and we can do a trade. Post some other goa/psy/trance sets and we'll talk.

    One more thing: is there a trick to hooking my tape player into my sound card to dub tapes into mp3's? What software should I use?

    yes.. must trade for baba. I have a 7 hour Hallucinogen live set if you're interested. Some Shpongle in there too.

    no trick for dubbing.. just audio out from tape deck to your input on your soundcard. Make sure you use something decent so you get your levels right and off you go. I've been lazy and have been using Sound Forge however i don't really like it. Its easy though so i recommend that.

    if i had both sides, i'd make you a copy! [​IMG] as far as other sets go, i only have the one tape -- dj zen -- and a few other albums on cd/mp3. i do have some other sets on mp3 -- mostly house and techno.

    anyway, LoopeD, if we can work something out to mutual benefit that would be very cool. [​IMG]

    DAMMIT! I came home and my WinMX had crashed - without grabbing Side B........

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now I'll probably never find it again.

    The search continues....

    Variant, I can hook you up with Side A - though I already got that huge set from kodos [​IMG]

    Actually its side B that i'm more interested in.. but thanks.

    Guess what I got tonight? [​IMG]

    We'll start the bidding at......

    kidding - email me

    upload to audiogalaxy?
  10. LoopeD

    LoopeD TRIBE Member

    Sorry, uninstalled AudioGalaxy.

    You have ICQ? Does Messenger have file transfer abilities? I don't have ftp or anything like that.

  11. Variant

    Variant TRIBE Member

    hmm.. ok.. perhaps we should hook this up at Resistor 7?
  12. LoopeD

    LoopeD TRIBE Member

    Depends on when it is - if its in February I'm definately going, but I'm in Jamaica from March 18 - April 1.

    But if its do-able, it will be done.

    Shitty thing about tape mp3's is, if its a 45 minute tape, both sides don't fit onto one CD...... [​IMG]

    I'd feel weird about burning a Toronto DJ's tape that I downloaded for free onto 2 CD's then bringing it to a Toronto goa party - even if Nivoc doesn't spin goa any more! [​IMG]

  13. kodos

    burn data cds [​IMG]

    next resistor will be the last saturday of feb... prepare, troops! and such

    any hookage upage of nivocage would be much appreciated here... i'm sure i've mentioned it time and time again but nivoc was the dj at that first party i went to years ago that changed my mind about "all techno is crap"...

    I would hook0r you up0r with mp30rs of my niv0c mix0r cd but it says specifically in the cd liner notes:

    "Support the artists and the scene. Taping kills the music production."
  15. Stan

    Stan TRIBE Member

    BTW... all techno IS crap.
  16. kodos

    kodos TRIBE Member

    show me a place where i can buy it then! that philosophy sucks if the originator gives up and goes over to the 'dark side'.. buh [​IMG]

    not all techno sucks!!! *role-reversal*
  17. seeker

    seeker TRIBE Member

    a) still looking for side B
    b) all techno is *not* crap. i know i'm taking this *way* to seriously (even though i'm laughing about it), but IMO techno is more hypnotic and just as psychedelic as most trance, even goa/psy.

    the difference lies in the musical elements that make up that psydechedelic and hypnotic feel. goa/psy do it with weird sounds, swooshes, etc. techno does it with layers of rhythm. that's being general...

    anyway, it gets to me when trance-heads say "techno sux" and tech-heads say "trance sux". you're not *listening*! [​IMG]

    It was a tongue in cheek comment.
  19. seeker

    seeker TRIBE Member

    yeah, sorry. [​IMG] i kinda figured it was, but sometimes my brain dumps before my fingers can stop. hahahahaha

    i'll just shut up now.

    ATTN: LoopeD

    i'm still hoping to get that mp3 of Side B of Baba Ganesh... i'm going to post the dj zen tape that i mentioned on the tribe FTP server (see General forum for more details). any way that you could do the same with the nivoc tape? it would be very much appreciated! :)

    LoopeD TRIBE Member

    Well, I've got it at home, and I'll trade it with you. As I already said. ;)

    Do you not have ICQ? If not, just install it, I'll launch it to you, then uninstall it if you don't want it.

  22. LoopeD

    LoopeD TRIBE Member

    OK, I'll post it to the Tribe ftp tonight or tomorrow.
