Ministry Of Sound Profile:. In the mids, Ministry of Sound launched its record label which featured Trance and House music compilations, DJ mixes and artists. The German branch of Ministry of Sound became independent from the UK headquarters in and changed its name to Embassy of Music three years later. In the United States, Ministry of Sound non-import releases were relabeled and distributed through Ultra Records, while in Spain they were released through Blanco y Negro.
Ministry Of Sound Recordings Ltd. It seems also with the overall decline in sales of CDs that they have gone over two months as of writing without a new physical release a record. An example being that when Andrew Weatherall passed away, they initially posted on FB a picture of his Masterpiece compilation as a tribute; but then took that off and replaced it simply with a picture of the guy himself.

I have many records from their various labels and this can vary from ultra specialist house music to the absolute commercial and everything in between, take your pick. Reply Notify me Helpful. For one, they are the biggest name in all-encompassing dance music in the UK.
They are an accessible entry into the wider world of this genre, a function immitated in other genres too. Seconldly it's not all pap, as some have pointed out. Their club is decent it's pricey but they play an intelligent mix in there rather than the contents of their Annuals and their online radio is very good - diverse in output and respected.
OK the shows are sub-contracted at least they're associating themselves with good music and putting out for free. But, yes there are downpoints. They used to be choice; now they're at the bottom of people's CD collections. They don't help themselves with their relentless push for money by releasing the same songs the same track can appear on so many CDs - some supposedly successors to others in a series.
And their label often justifies the widespread cynism about dance music: that is is full of talentless girls singing provactively in sex-driven music vids. Reply Notify me 5 Helpful.

Telephone Unix, now possibly the most widely used operating system in scien- tific, government and academic computing has been penetrated by hackers causing considerable alarm, especially in government computing circles. UNIX is now available on the Amiga and is considered to behighly significant for the Amiga in serious applica- tions.
The weakness lets them have unlim- ited access to any files and to overwrite or change master control lists. To do this they have created a device of which the Communica- tions media have been asked not to publicise details. An informed source has revealed that some one hundred computers at more than 40 sites in the U.
The hackers have so cleverly covered their tracks that some users will not even know their security has been breached until the hackers choose to disclose it In some cases the hackers have left Trojan Horses which are programs that let the hacker re-enter the system at a later date as an apparently legiti- mate user. Taunting The hackers have not done dam- age to the systems but seem to enjoy taunting the users and the police who are trying to find them.
They are believed by Scotland Yard's Computer Crime Unit to have such control that it takes them less than one minute to enter a system. They often leave personalised messages for computer manag- ers, especially at universities. Bath, Edinburgh. Lancaster and Oxford are among the universities that have had "visits " from hackers.
Edinburgh 's system manager found a message which said "Hi, Jim. You should be finding this interest- ing being a Unix guy. It emerged that they had left Trojan Horses running in files under that system too. What particularly worries the government specialists is the hackers' ability to crack the sys- tems at the level of senior manag- ers, so giving them the access to browse through potentially highly sensitive material. This has caused alarm in the U K. S to spend some military cash in the U.
If these supposedly high security computer operations are so easily breached perhaps we shall soon get a new attitude to "Open Sys- tems" or even more encouragingly. This tactical wargame simulates the historical Market Garden operation in Montgomery's plan was to break the occupation of Holland thereby opening the door to Berlin and end- ing the war.

Those software games houses that were not quick enough off the mark into the Sega and Nintendo fields or have not been able to break in to this highly competitive area of games development are now finding themselves squeezed between the recession that has struck the High Streets and the consequent fall in sales of computer games.

The small price you pay for the extra four channels is a slight re- duction in sound quality, and a limi- tation to Soundtracker-type tempo control rather than the more flex- ible "beats per minute" system.
Realtime recording is no-longer a viable option, as the keyboard is read too infrequently. That's all the bad news. The good news is that it all works extremely well, and with the extra channels, there's far more scope for filling out drum patterns, adding chords and generally beef- ing up your tunes.
OctaMed is not public domain. OctaMed's range of sample-editing, sequencing and MIDI features make it an unbeat- able sample sequencer, at any price. The four-channel version of MED is continuing in production, and the latest version at the time of going to press was 3. There are now two new gadgets in the sample editor section: filter and boost. The filter reduces high frequences over specified sections of the sample. Boost does the opposite.
Rather than making your samples tinny and noisy, it brings up the high frequencies very clearly, enhanc- ing the clarity of most drum loops and vocals no end.

Who he? Well, Lord Reay Is an Eton and Oxford edu- cated peer whose interests are given as fishing, shooting and sightseeing. Whatever happened to hunting? What is worse than the Noble Lords apparent lack of previous attraction to technology is that the Government has downgraded his post from the previously higher Minister of State level to the mere junior minister grade. This show of profound concern with technology by the Govern- ment of technofreak John Major has prompted worry among MPs of all parties and the Labour Party spokesman to say that "It just shows that the Goverment does ii not take the job seriously.
The Gov- ernment takes the job of running the country's technological future so seriously that it has taken thought to what Lord Reay has to do and realised technology isn't important enough really to merit a full time job anyway. So Lord Reay has been given the responsibility for environmental issues that must be the fishing and shooting bit and the film Industry too. In between casting for lethargic trout and blasting away Innocent birds perhaps Lord Reay will find time to think about how to keep the U.

Microway has dramatically reduced the price of its FlickerFixer graphics en- hancement board designed to eliminate the Amiga flicker problem on high resolution and VGA monitors.
Commenting on this price reduc- tion. Managing Director. Simon Shute. Designed to fit into the Amiga video slot, the FlickerFixer provides users with superior quality colour or monocrome graphics and text. It works by removing the flicker in the interlace mode and the visible scan lines in the non-interlace mode of the Amiga display. The board which is compatible with all user software, does not modify the standard Amiga video signals and may be used simulataneously with the Amiga PAL Phase Alternation Line outputs.
Microway's FlickerFixer supports a wide range of standard multiscanning and VGA monitors and when used in conjunction with overscan modes will support video resolutions of up to x pixels. It is also compatible with the Amiga s colour Hold and Modify HAM mode, which allows over colours to be displayed si- multaneously on the screen.
ShowMaker lets anyone create finished presentations containing a variety of media, including video titling, sounds, pictures, animations. MIDI-music and genlocked video from a wide range of sources, in- cluding laser disks. VCRs the Video toaster, and audio tape recorders.
Targetted at the growing demand for high quality multimedia desktop presentation and video software. ShowMaker is a powerful system that allows the visualisation and construction of self-running "shows" containing Amiga based and non- Amiga based elements.
ShowMaker allows the use of an Amigatocontrolanyinternalorexternal device to include in a presentation — from laser disk players to MIDI key- boards to the Video Toaster.
Show- Maker will also generate story-boards and cue sheets of presentations. Showmaker allows the prepara- tion of very long "shows" because it plays one part of the presentation while automatically loading the next part. As a result. ShowMaker pres- entations are limited only by the available disk space, not RAM. ShowMaker also comes with a special facility that gives accurate control of a presentation and its timing. This means that users can synchronize diverse media into a single polished product — such as defining an animation in terms of frames per musical beat, instead of frames per second.
This new version is now fully func- tional in stereo and its editing facili- ties have been totally revamped. Right term for a musical package, don't you think? Deltaware told AUI that that the user interface has been improved and many additional power fea- tures have been added.
In some areas it is also faster than the pre- vious version. Every ASF sample has its own built-in player program and is an executable file as separate player programs are no longer needed. In A-Sound Elite. ASF now functions in stereo as well as mono. Support for multi- octave, multi-track IFF and Sonix samples provides.
Freehand editing of waveforms is also supported as is variable zoom. It also has over 20 special effects such as Echo. Disguise, and Comb Filter. More than 29, Amiga users packed into the re- cent Amiga '91 Berlin Com- puter Show, making it the second largest Amiga gathering in the world - Cologne last November had just double that number.
One product that seems to have aroused particular attention was the Delta Animation Laser Lab. A new game at the Show was "Inheritance". The title in German was Das Erbe. It features environ- mental concerns as its theme. The next event in Germany is to be a repeat of last year's crowded Cologne Show which is scheduled for October 1 st -November 3rd.
The organisers have warned that, as in Berlin, the whole show will be dominated not by technology but by the Show mascot, a certain Hermann the User.
