Welcome to ME

After a national search, The Autocorrect is pleased to announce that the position of Chief Science Officer has been filled by our company CEO, a Roland SPD-SX known to his friends as Roger.

Through the magic of MIDI, Roger has expanded his reach to incorporate a number of additional scientific instruments that should help to offset the loss of our founding Scientific Explorer, Andy.

Please join us in congratulating Roger on his new position!

Farewell

It is with mixed emotions that we announce Andy Wilke’s retirement from the Autocorrect. As Chief Science Officer, Andy helped to drive and define the technological footprint of the organization and our continuous experimentation in the pursuit of the perfect sound.

His influences can be felt in all aspects of the organization, most especially in the songs National Security Love Letter, Ant Farm, Courtesy Patrol and the all-important breakdown in the Mesmerist.

His relaxed and low-key persona helped to bring people together in otherwise awkward moments and his positive attitude helped to make easy many a difficult situation.

Please join us in congratulating Andy on his successful career and in wishing him luck in all future endeavors.

  • This was a very informal meeting—casual dress code and the humans were allowed to speak between songs. There wasn’t even an agenda printed! Anarchy!
  • The ratio of dry to effected Bass VI signal was way too far on the dry side. Another lesson learned. Next time, we just mic the bass amp, nothing else!
