Trump seeks Electronic Wall

“Trump administration officials are discussing the possibility of asking foreign visitors to disclose all websites and social media sites they visit, and to share the contacts in their cell phones. If the foreign visitor declines to share such information, he or she could be denied entry. Sources told CNN that the idea is just in the preliminary discussion level.”

This is a completely idiotic move. I don’t think the US Government has the resources to do this, and it’s clearly impractical at airports. The building of an electronic wall around the USA starts with nonsense like this.

The latest studio configuration 

I’ve cut back a good bit and reorganised things. I’m using the little keyboard to trigger the archaic rack mount stuff at far left: Roland string ensemble, Roland U220, and M1R. There is also a Yamaha CS2x off screen. The main set up is Novation Impule 61, Akai APC40, Novation Launchpad controlling Ableton Live. Sound is MOTU ultralite mk3 going into a JBL “big nob” volume control going to Event PS8 monitors. Also off screen is a miniAPC. 

Someday I would like to replace the PS8s with either Event Opals or equivalent pair of Focals. Also will replace M1R, U220 and string thing with software.
