Re: Your lifelong equipment list

I actually expect there to be a Tempest in that set up eventually. :D That's a nice set up. I've been dreaming of a "U" shaped work space for years. What's the DAW that everything runs in or on to? I find the studio ergonomics impossible to sort out. I just can't reach everything as easily as possib...

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

Very wicked. What do you do for drums or percussive elements?

Those two alone make me want to see a picture of your studio and see how you have that all set up.
What kind of workspace does that illicit and um- what the h**l do you make?

Oh, I gotta hear something......

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

I knew you were going to hurt my feelins sooner or later. I can't express the difference without using vague terms like 'behaves'. And I find that sound manipulation is different than sound generation. And it's when you want to get beneath the surface that things get different. I'm going to read tha...

Modular Synthesizer (3D, 360°)

Came across this. Thought it was pretty cool Modular Synthesizer (3D, 360°) Synthesizers modify sound waves and create unique sounds. Since modular synthesizers allow a user near infinite variations for modifying sound waves, we’ve chosen to focus on a simple, basic system to show how they work. Doe...

Re: Analog Drum Machines

Or simply understand that you will be buying more than one piece of gear in your quest for "Ultimate thing that I program/create my drums on/with." All in one? Not going to happen and even something that gets the job done today will be unable to do so in the future because the job will change . As a...

Re: so Juno 60's are about £1000 now? what the h**l?!

Unless it's powered by an ENTIRE GENERATION (whether you were born in the VST age or this new remake era) that has been told, argued, pushed, led (heavily) to believe there's nothing like those originals . How many modern ROMplers do I dig through that have presets STILL named after old synths? So m...

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

But let's face it, analog has gotten less-and-less analog-sounding, and the kids no longer understand why it was cool to begin with. Must...resist.....must not ask...... Should I bite? See, I want to ask about this, but I am afraid you are about to lead us down a very dark path that I will NOT be h...

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

With a username like that, I ashamed that you only have 1 moog item. I thought fer sure you'd even mention a t-shirt you picked up at one of their fests. Sorely disappointed. :D But more by this....

Re: Roland tr09 reasons to be cheerful

No. I think we would all be very unhappy if the 8 came out before the 9. The 9 is cool, when there is no Aira Tr-8 to compare it to. I see no reason to but an eight....when I own a nine. And unfortunately we are all so stuck on exact replicas that no one is making something that does the old...and a...

iPad app for piano!!

So I spent all last night trying to find a simple piano patch I can play my iPad. Everyone I found was a tutorial and based on learning to play. Which I wouldn't mind, but the reviews/comments always say things like 'freezes if you play a chord' or nag screen in app purchase...or hangs etc.... I use...

Re: What about making a VSE music compilation?

Long as we decide to have 1 entity control the entire thing, I'm down. I elect a moderator to decide....erm....pretty much everything and I'm sure it has to run past admin or the brand owner.
