Mimeophon is really fun, you're going to enjoy it. Can't comment on how dirty it can get as I haven't even really pushed it into self-oscillation. But it can get wild when you modulate the zone, freeze, flip, etc. Would recommend to a friend.


Speaking of Make Noise modules, I'm thinking about ordering a QPAS. Has anyone here had experience with it and formed any strong opinions?
I have Three Sisters, Polaris, and a SEM filter currently. I know people were comparing it a lot to Three Sisters a lot when it came out but they seem like drastically different designs to me.

They do seem drastically different except for the use case of separating a stereo image with several filters.

From what I’ve heard (in videos and from peeps) it sounds great but always has that sound, so if you like that sound I say go.

I took receipt of the Akemie's Castle. Holy fuck it makes weird noises. I cannot really control it yet because my Doepfer A-142-4 Quad Decay is lost somewheres in the mail damn the gods who rule the sky above Perfect Circuit and Ellensburg, WA both.

Manipulating all the FM goo with CV provides digital habitat for aural digistruct hamster. Legendary. Have used it in concert with the Akemie's Taiko and it is like two things of the same ilk who combine as Captain Blanet did on the cartoon. That is to say, Akemie is clearly a superb hero who we must not curse or damn but celebrate.

I'm going to run the Castle through a Doepfer A-103 VCF-6 18 dB Low Pass. One output, anyway. I feel like I'm going to want another filter for the other output at some point. Any thoughts on what a good filter is to use with an FM synth?

I’ve been wondering about the Ocht. It seems like a great idea, but the lack of control scared me off. I’m guessing it’s one of those where you have to appreciate it for what it is. And in your case BEHNDY, acknowledge that it’s not what you need? Idk. Getting philosophical here...

lol. i acknowledge NOTHING.

yeah. it's a cool idea, it's a TON of LFOs in only 4 hp, but it doesn't suit me at all. can't sync, the variation of speeds is a cool idea, but i don't ever want or need a 64 measure long LFO.

not my jam.

doing a bit of a shakeup with my system. holy butts why did i not know about the Bubblesound Hex stuff? 6 ASR envelopes and VCAs in 16 hp? AND they have a cable at the back that normals them to each other? fuck YES please.

gave me enough room to order a Voicas Reduxer and LED Dirty Butts thing.

WOOT.
