You will of course need cymbals strapped to your knees.
the smell of repetition really is on me
Why Aren't you playing with your new toy rather than posting rubbish on here?:irazz:
I know I've a new / old toy arriving at some point this week and I may disappear for a bit when it gets here.
heheh i was on duty overnight, so at work...
until about 12.30 when i couldn't take it any more and fired it up. OH MY FUCK. it's rad.
Just ordered an DSP upgrade for my G2.
Nord/Clavia ran out of them and decided not to make any more.
Luckily, a little one-man company in the States (Encore Electronics) have produced a clone.
it's fucking hypnotic, that's what it is.
the first patch i made was pure nord HP squelch. the second was weird sequenced noise. the third was weird sequenced noise. the fourth was... weird sequenced noise.
so many patching options... so few hours in the day.
I know we're veering wildly off-topic here, but: I'm reading that there are effects section on the v1 modular...?
That's one of the nicer features of the G2. 4 analogue ins and 4 analogue outs and an immensely flexible effects section is really good for live use.
Encore also make some of the most comprehensive midi kits for old synths. Lush
Somebody should print that on a t-shirt.
Is now a good time to post a pic of my Doepfer?
Me auntie used to handle one of those at work
Try cramming that into an SKB flight-case.
On that subject, Doepfer seem to be doing some nice little modular-but-also-stand-alone units at the minute.
I would just like to agree with an earlier comment of Aeons about 'gearlust' but add a few points as well.
I think that you can get so tied up in the gearlust that you don't actually get around to using the gear you have to the best degree and also that you end up relying on expensive hardware instead of being inventive and original with your creations. For example, one of the most talented drummers I have ever seen was playing on pot-lids, rubbish bins and various other bits-and-pieces. Of course you are not going to to get the acostics using this stuff but hell it was cool to watch and....performance is about entertainment too!
I also think the same holds true for software too. I know I am at least a wee bit of a soft-synth whore and really have not gotten the best out of what I have got before shooting off into another synth....found that the tunnel ends up in cheap effects with poor originality....some of the best noises of have got are off good small plugins (reverbs/filters etc) coupled with simple sounds like a clap. Using this example I managed to generate a 'grating flick' that is very 'Shift-esque' without using anything too complex.
Still learning. Keep learning.
That doepfer looks quite cool though, anyone tried it for a rolling bass?
Its allways a good time.
Just as it is allways a good time to post a picture of my Juno 2012:iyes:
What on God's earth is that?
A photoshop job I reckon.
I think its real! :ilol: i might try and put that waldorf filter in my andromeda after all :icool:
Thats what happens when I have to broken Juno's and decide not to fix just one but to create a monster instead.
It is real Colin can confirm that. Still need to build a better case for it and sort out a few things on the master units module board when I get round to it does the business.:iyes:
