RØDE iXY 24 / 96 Studio-Quality Stereo Microphone &hellip by RØDE
It is well known that to get the best from this mic (i.e. the 24/96 recording quality) you need the RØDE Rec app. However, what is not as well known is that if you have a 4th generation iPod touch (or any other non-iOS7 device), you will need to get hold of the older version of this app. Users who have previously downloaded the non-iOS7 versions of RØDE Rec will still have access to it, but if you never downloaded an earlier version of the app you need to know about this workaround.

If you want a review of the film, check out Peter Bradshaw's excellent review in The Guardian - Bradshaw always seems to be spot-on with his reviews. All I really want to mention here is that while the film is great and the Blu-ray image and sound are excellent, there are no extras on the disc (apart from the theatrical trailer). This is a lame effort on the part of Metrodome, who should have done a better job. An intelligent, complex film like this deserves a bit more effort. Tartan did a decent job with the 'Primer' DVD, it's just a shame that Metrodome didn't so the same with 'Upstream Colour'.

The first Davey/Davy Graham album I heard was 'After Hours', and I bought this a couple of days later, having been completely blown away by 'After Hours'. I was rather disappointed with this - everything that made 'After Hours' great is absent here. Graham is obviously a great guitarist, but this record is not great, and as it's meant to be his best I don't think I'll bother with any more (apart from the 'Live in Edinburgh' album perhaps).

Generally the feeling here is one of overproduction - it's all trying to sound much too smooth, polished and produced, as if someone at the record company thought that Graham might appeal to an audience with Pop sensibilities. Of course, much… Read more
