been visited by the modular bug...

...after earning a bunch of extra money from overtime and extra shifts, I got talked into buying the Doepfer Dark Energy yesterday. and all I can say: wow! so full of life! after noodling about for a bit, I started experimenting with the patch cables: more wow! it was either this or an xoxbox, and I...

Re: Elektron Octatrack!

yeah the last few slides didn't quite do it for me either, but I'll probably be in the second hand market for one later on. crossing my fingers that the user-reviews will convince ME

Re: "Delhi Djinn" - Dub Techno for dancefloors and couches a

thanx for the listen :) I might just multitrack this one after all (like I did on the "ambient techno" series), but doing that kills my flow and the "moment" which is when it happens for me. Also the planning part turns me off, for example deciding on a rigid structure so I know where the drums drop...

"Delhi Djinn" - Dub Techno for dancefloors and couches alike

ok this one was a blast to make yet again, frustrated by failure to come up with something new with monomachine, I found an older pattern, re-mangled it and started adding drum parts.. somehow I'm back in love with the MnM again, the fx machines are everything to me, here I use track 5 for reverb an...

yeah, you need to stop the sequencer after sampling, meaning you can't sample as you go like you would with a looper

"Svalbard" - Machinedrum House track

one pattern of Machinedrum UW + a touch of KP3. live take. just for fun this one, may or may not go back and work more on this, just thought I'd share http://soundcloud.com/siesta-submarina/svalbard also, made some EQ-work on this track due to label interest, still not entirely sure how it sits on a...

Re: Elektron Octatrack!

Sounds like a killer machine. Like an ESX that gets rid of all the bad things and takes all the good things further. ...which is SPOT ON what I was hoping for.. still after a year with the MD, I can't help but wish it had some of the ESX functions and features (slizer etc) this christmas will be a ...

Re: Synths with Easter Eggs

if you hold down two (cant remember which ones) buttons on the original kaossilator while powering up, you get the option to double the loop-length, which is a nice suprise :) I believe the info was somehow leaked around easter too, but that may well be my imagination going a bit wild...

Re: Rough Demo Track (Remix)

glad to have you back Dave :) This is an interesting take on that track, you make it more "upbeat" without ruining the darkness of the track, I like the sound a lot. I see the track you uploaded was only 2 minutes, so i guess the final version will be longer, but I miss some variations in the groove...

Re: Elektron Octatrack!

aaaanyway, like it or not, the price is now official: $1490 / 1240 Euro, so the same as a Monomachine and $300 less than the MDUW.

Pe-orders from Dec 13th, official release date Dec 20th

crossing my fingers that the FX section wil be as killer as the MD/MnM.

Re: Elektron Octatrack!

as far as I remember, you have a feature where you can line up any number of samples in a sample editor, the load that to the OT as one long sample. then you can set "trigger points", so that when you hit trig key 1 (the 16 sequencer input buttons) you play back a section of the long sample, say a b...
