i guess it's hard to look at things without the filter of would i want it.

the other two or three demos on YT sound kinda butt, the one linked sounds GOOD. it's Moog, so i'm sure it sounds amaaaaaaazing.

just seems like a lot of money for a less verbose sequencer and a drum voice. at least for me.

but i dropped almost that much on a Swarm, so what do i know.

MAN i am looking forward to that being out. almost have the extra dosh set aside to ask the GR1 peoples if i can go ahead and pay down the rest of that so it's not an OH SHIT I FORGOT TO HAVE THE MONIES READY situation when it's ret to ship.

I know you're not talking shit, I was trying to provide a different perspective and greyscales definitely put it into words better than I did.

I've still only listened to the one teaser video with all the different artists playing it. Sounded really good to me and I love the apparent simplicity and immediacy.

And the Quadrantid Swarm right? You were able to put a down payment on that? Did you not go through Kickstarter then? Either way, I am super excited to get mine as well; that thing looks and sounds soooo fun. I should also be getting the Field Kit FX around the same time. April is a ways away, but it's going to be a good month for gear!


yep. can't WAIT. i paid it off through Kickstarter. just have to pay the rest after the deposit for the GR1 thinger. which. ALSO the excitements.

DOOD HOW ARE YOU SO CALM. i would be losing my BUTTS.

also, quick thing with the Dial Up and the ERD WORM. there's some E950 and E352 for the melody, BitBox for the bass drum and hi hat.



holy butts the WORM is deeeeeeep. and the Dial Up is delicious. it gets super anger face noisy times, because. you know. MOFFENZEEF. but it's also pretty a little more contained.

Man I want a Dial Up because I don't think I could make something sound that shitty on it's own. It's like they actually shoved an old 56k modem into a 4HP package

it's so tiny. and really fun noises. the Tail is interesting as butts too. it makes it almost quick delay or reverb at longer settings. it would be NEAT if there was CV control over that too, but it's such a pretty shittu sound box.

Meh I got a really good deal on it, and I got (mostly) refunded until the thing turns up. It went MIA 12/08 and there's been no word on it since. The system, along with some other synth goods, got loaded on a pallet and shipped out with no label or shipping info. Easy mistake to make I suppose, I've done dumber things (lookin at you guy I sent the complete wrong pedal to a few months back).

The bitch of it is I liquidated my entire eurorack setup to afford myself this b&g+. I have my Music Easel. Which is awesome and all, but I'm itching to dive into the new system. The news about the dfam has me thinking about grabbing a cheap 6U and loading an m32 and dfam w clouds and some other effects to tide me over for a few weeks/months while I wait.

Anyone wanna buy my Folktek stuff or a cheap Circadian so I can buy more euro while I wait for my lost euro?!?!?

Wooo! That's great to hear Antlerface!

I traded my Mescaline and Belgrad for a 4ms SMR, Mutable Veils, and Warped Vinyl MKII! I'm super excited to get them in. Here's the current setup (no where for the Veils until I get a bigger case. Also, NSFW tags to avoid spamming the thread with pics):

The eventual plan is to keep the smaller case and move the rest into a 104hp Intellijel case:

MrNovember sorry if this has been covered but how's the Alter treating you?

When I get my Moog pieces in a few weeks I'm thinking about using those, Clouds, Conduit as my effects.

After being somewhat disappointed with the effects in the Mescaline, I am so far very happy with the Alter 2. I still haven't gotten too deep into it and I've really only explored a few of the modes. The "reverb with infinite capture and lp + hp filters" has definitely been my favourite so far.

I'm wondering how many effects for the m32/dfam is too many. The Music Easel has its own pedalboard. The Shared System has Erb/Echo. I could probably get by w a 6U84hp little fucker and just have a couple weird things in each row. An Alter each and a lil something spicy like my CVGT1 and a mini o_c or some fuckery.

I need to reduce the physical space I take with my gear to shuffle furniture around and put my wife's desk in the same small room as my PC and music stuff, which means going from one big desk and one small desk to "just" the big one with both PC and synths on it. I've made diagrams and plans and I'll very likely sell the Mescaline soon as I can't fit it in there and I chose the Reface YC + pedalboard over it. I also don't have time to invest in a new instrument now (which is how I see the Mescaline). It does sound awesome and does lots of interesting stuff (it's easy to get lost in there and I've not even started using it in an advanced way) but as far as synths are concerned I'll just focus on my 7U.

That also means that when I sell the Mescaline I can buy a Teletype right away, which is nice :). I already have the expanders for this thing but can't even use them ;).

Also, I really like Mescaline's effects... They fit very well with the rest of the system I think.
