Re: I don't want to play piano

It´s kind of important to dominate hardware interfaces, at least one of them. Piano is a beautiful sound and instrument. Knowing to play it will also help you with keyboard synths.

Desdeniebla: a dark landscape from the Emu Command Station

ntense pitch detuning programming over the Emu Command Station's modulation matrix. The dark voices were created using 12 voice samples from 4 different ROMS, using massive vocal-oriented filters, and modulating the fine tune differently on each one of the voice layers. The drones and obscure backgr...

Re: DSI speculation

I demand a poly analog with onboard multitrack sequencer! There´s literally no difference between sound design and notes sequencing on the Tempest. I hope they keep evolving this concept on their future releases. Sequencing should not be seen as a separated section, or an extra feature, but a must o...

Re: VSE Member's Gig

I ´m shameless scum then.. I´ve been jobless for the last 18 months, and I´m wasting the last money I have traveling through the country while being semidrunk.

Re: VSE Member's Gig

Why don´t you come to Costa Rica?
Make the gig here. I offer a place to stay on the capital at no cost, and then I could take you to a place you won´t forget.

Re: The factory preset conundrum

I don't distinguish between programming user patches and sequencing tasks, since I consides musical notes and their positions inside a context as any other parameter of the Sound, like amp volume or pitch or velocity or LPF filter's values. There are sounds wich sound like sequences, some LFO or ADS...

Re: The factory preset conundrum

Making sounds and making music are the same . At least that's the way I see it. Or, looking it in another way, programming sequences and programming sounds are not separated processes, but part of the same thing: composing music with synths. btw, when does the Factory Preset is gone and the User Pat...
