BOO missing packages. Tighten that security!

Ordered some sexy red legs for my Rainmaker, for caseless desktoppin' in front of the HEK, which has a few extra power slots under there. M3/50mm. Super slow shipping though. https://www.ebay.com/itm/10x-M3-CNC-Alu ... 1229973751

Cs-L is here. Oh man I'd love a manual for this. The sounds are so good but I've spent too much time going "hm, this knob isn't doing anything, but WHY?!"

Ordered Pico Drums #4 from a muffdude and I'm done with another stage. Four on the floor or two per rack, I can go either way now, and I'm equipped to handle any drum situation. Locked and loaded, should not need another god damn thing. But...
The Erica Sample Drum is my new frontrunner for a $ampler with all the chopping and pitch tricks. Bigboy medium, it's just right. If I ever had to stick with one manufacturer, it would be Erica no question.
Busting the Rainmaker out to external duty has got me taking apart both racks now, so a crazy new configuration is in the works and I'm pretty excited about it.

I'm a bad person and I bought another module (less than a month after the previous one). That's the third this year, and more than one of them was offset by the sale of my Folktek Mescaline so I'm not as bad as most people here though ;). Look at me rationalizing my totally unnecessary purchases...

Anyway, a Mannequins W/ is incoming, it was one third cheaper than buying one locally when they're available. Really looking forward to this one, the most recent firmware seems stable enough and Teletype integration could be pretty nice. When I'll actually have some time in front of the modular (changing diapers is a more common past-time these days).

And I still have a Basimilus Iteritas Alter for sale, btw : $320 including wordlwide shipping :).

oh man that Sample Drum looks NICE.

yeah. big fan of how Erica rolls. so tasty.

murf. lol. was on NE's site to order the AI at 12.01 today, apparently they meant October 19 AT A REASONABLE TIME.

also, played with the Coherence a bit, very cool. i feel like i'm starting to get how she works, gives me the wiggles to learn her secrets.



about 1.10 in the Scanned comes in. was trying for a more melodic, give her space to evolve use?

I got into modular over a year ago and I'm going to sell it all over the winter.

As much as I love the technicality of it all........I don't get much joy from the musical side of it.

feel you. it's a whole THING. for me, it's made me excited about doing musics in a way i havna felt for a long time, was burnt on bass and pedals and soft synth stuff. but i see where you're coming from.

ordered the NE AI. because. you know. fuck it.

I get that too, and I plan to get a couple of 19" rack synths back in the mix at some point, for chords, pads and preset kinda stuff I don't want to bother with in modular. Now that I have a large modular system, I have new ideas on how to integrate them. I get too much enjoyment from the drums and the soundscapes and all the synchronicity to give it up, but I do miss the immediacy of dialing up preset voices, and having all that orchestra/workstation kind of stuff at my disposal, so I'll just gradually bring it back...unless a better alternative comes along in modular, which never surprises me anymore. Look at everything the Pico Voice can do...that's just making me wonder what the big version will be capable of now. It will probably be like a Fantom or a Triton in module form.

PLANS. I'M LISTENING SUH.

also, just to make sure i'm understanding the nomenclature/naming structure correctly -

if a knob on an input is an attenuverter, then at noon it's no CV, full CCW is full negative CV, full CW is the full, unaffected CV?

Looking forward to hearing what you do with the AI behndy! Do you still use like all of their modules?

Other news- I ordered a grid, Ansible and norns this week. Got an offer on my Verbos harm osc today. If that sells, getting a second JF so I can use one for sound and one for shape and they talk with TT. Speaking of which, TT has changed he game for me. My JF, w/‘s, 301 (and soon more) are connected via i2c and it’s sick! Using those commands in conjunction with cv and knob turns allow for more fun than I could get without the TT controlling stuff. Will update when the new gear arrives and I have time to play :))

everything but the LIP! had a good deal on a trade when i was tapped, will grab againnnn. love their stuff so much, but just the Cursis in my main rack now, everything else NE in my home rack. 7u makes choices freaking HARD.

MOOF. STOP MAKING THE TELETYPE ACTION TIMES SOUND SO FUN. I AM TRYING TO RESIST.

still haven't put near enough time into the 301. been super busy, sort of torn if i want to learn 0.3 or wait till 0.4 is bumped up with Custom Units this weekend.

Just go with 0.4. Even if there’s bugs you’ll be more up to speed by the time the next version comes out. Also, someone else can correct me, but I think there were some UI changes between 0.3 and 0.4?

Glad to hear you're digging this setup, I'm planning in doing the same thing when Teletypes are back in stock. Gonna put together a mini system with a limited collection of Mannequins modules to learn it inside out (it I'm not too dense :cool: )
