I'm mostly a synth noob, though I'm a classical pianist so I know music and its theory.
I've done a lot of research and watched a lot of vids, and here's the devices I really like the look of:
- Novation Circuit - amazing now with all its post-launch firmware upgrades. Looks really fun to use, too. Prefer to what seems to be its main rival (though it's £170 more expensive), the Electribe.
- Arturia MicroFreak - again, just looks so much fun to use, and sounds crazy.
Possibly a dedicated drum unit like Arturia DrumBrute or the new Uno Unodrum.
Some midi keyboard to make melodies on Circuit easier
One question that comes to mind is: with the Circuit, given that it handles drums to a point anyway, do I need a dedicated drum unit?
Any thoughts in general about this stack? Sound good, or am I way off?
