fuck yeah... the only thing about a violin is that unless you're using some delay/verb/sustain you need both hands most of the time. but, in a vaguely heterosexual fashion, i agree that one can never have enough knobsRorymonster said:Send it to circuit breakers and get them to put even more knobs on!!!
i don't know you at all i'm afraid... but if you're ever in nottingham with an hour or two to spare, send me a PM and you're welcome to come play mi casa etc. etc.Ott^ said:Wow - I'd love a go on that. I got to grade 3 on violin before my mum bought me a synth....
YES! please! that would be superb...theyellowbrickroad said:My mate has a very good max patch which uses a electric violin to control a load of synthises stuff, mainly fft.
Do you want a copy? it is very very very fun!
the man does do some funktastic things... great violins as well. actually if you like that you might enjoy nigel kennedy's remaking of five jimi hendrix songs, it's called 'the kennedy experience'. more reinterpretations than covers, i found it a really cool concept (and more importantly one well carried out).Heaven and Earth said:I'm sticking on my Ed Alleyne-Johnson as I type - and no, it's not a novelty condom before anyone asks ...
Oxford Suite rules!
yeah adjusting is an issue. obviously the weighting and architecture of the instrument is totally different, and the varying body shapes affect weight distribution & where you choose to place the instrument on your shoulder. however there are real benefits - with this violin, i can reach higher notes on all 4 strings more quickly as my hand doesn't have to move out around a big empty soundboxBeatNik said:How does it feel adjusting from a proper violin to that...
got a friend who plays violin at diploma level and the first time he picked one up a couple of months ago in a music shop, he said the feeling was completely different as the touch and vibrations feel completely different?
Still... i can see some mad psychedelic pitch swings and bends being born of that
man i didn't see you or your set at psycle gutted man... next time?bez23 said:That's, like, totally from the future dude. Look forward to hearing it!
