"nodular" was the only ['ramp] album to be released on Manikin, back in 1998 (due to be remastered some day or other). Its been out of print for many years, though...

I'm glad Nodular came up, I was always curious about the same cover used for Keller & Schonwalder's More Loops CD.
Was the 444 Oscillators meant to be a series perhaps...can you shed some light Stephen.
Thanks.

Yes, I've always guessed what does "444 Oscillators" mean Rolling Eyes

(Perhaps something similar to the "456" in the Torchwood TV series Laughing My freaky side has spoken Embarassed )

Poor Carlos, his thread got hi-jacked...

As far as I remember, Mario intended "444 Oscillators" to be a series of albums, each limited to 444 copies. To my knowledge, there was only the K&S album and "nodular", and after that the series petered out. For more precise info you ought to ask him in person.

Even though Im at odds with how things went for ['ramp] at that time, it was Mario who put ['ramp] on the map by releasing the first album (I had just released "traces" and did not have the money to release another album).

Thanks Stephen,
I do have all the Manikins and there are only the 2 albums in that series.
History is history one thing leads to another and here we are, Manikin did a fantastic job with all their release.

But you're right, it's time to let Carlos RIP...
