Yes! That’s why I do music. I’m convinced I get some sort of dopamine reward for doing it right, and am motivated to do music for biological reasons.

I picked up my drum for a moment this morning and started playing a little polymetric beat I've played a million times, and then thought "I wonder if I could make this on the trigger riot..." & Yes, I could. Very quickly. And in no time flat I was ripping off Reich's phasing technique.

But I felt compelled to share this not because that module is great or anything, but as a reminder (for myself, old heads, and new blood), keep playing music and other instruments outside of all this shit.

Modules are cool, building a system feels like an achievement, and I personally feel some sort of pressure to use it cuz if I'm not why the fuck am I spending all this money? But it has a time and a place, just like sitting down with a drum for no reason except to play has it's time and place.

Iunno, sometimes I feel discouraged with all this but I often come back around and felt like sharing this insight.

I have the day off tomorrow so I'm gonna bounce back and forth between the drum and the trigger riot to learn how to program all these sweet patterns :yay:

yeah. i'm not sure how i feel about that. like. not needing a midi to cv module? coooool. but it seems like it CAN'T do as much as the standalone bugger?

kinda wary about the huge feature set in the Pyramid, with already a smaller screen, being squished down further?

but i have INTEREST.

also, Wogglebug and Quadra ordered. YESH all the envelopes. YESH FINALLY RANDOM MODULE.

^ looks neat. A lot of deeper hardware sequencers hitting the eurorack market. I wonder what they mean by effects in this context, makes me think of the midi effects plugins in Logic.

Edit: I’m guessing it’s a standalone unit with connectivity options but maybe not?

sooooo..... OP-1 is super pimp. but i thought it did longer sampling, so not EXACTLY what i was thinking for a travel buddy? i'd love to have samples of THINGS, osc ramble noises, bass runs, whatever. then play with beats and melodies and arrangement when i'm out of the house.

i'm thinking of grabbing a Digikat. don't know if i want to sell the OP-1 to fund it, or wait and grab it to complement each other?

dilemmas.

Thanks for sharking that, kbit, I feel like it's important to keep in mind. I've not played much besides synths lately, but that has me feeling inspired to.

Also it looks like I'm getting a huge module dump on Friday, which is when I leave for an overnight camping trip :facepalm: :facepalm:
I should have a Wogglebug, Tempi, uScale II, and *hopefully* a Rings (which has currently in USPS limbo for 7 days) waiting for me upon my return.
I thought I timed everything to arrive on Wednesday, but the stupid genocide shipping holiday mucked up all muh planzzz. Damn you Cristoph Colombo!!! :rant:

Leaving this here so I can remember it exists
https://archive.org/details/ElectronicM ... lenStrange

Alessandro Cortini talks about this book and it seems like everyone agrees its one of the defacto books on learning synthesis as a whole.

Paging through it and thought it would be a good read so went to amazon to get a hard copy since it's not available on iBooks and i don't like reading on my computer and new copies are $794 and used are $289 :eek: :eek: :eek:

Yea I thought people were joking on the Muffs facebook thread when they said it was expensive. Or expensive was like $150. This thing puts college textbooks to shame.

I hate reading on the computer as well, but I'll find a way if it means I don't have to spend $300.

eh screw it, found one for $70 on ebay with a 25% off coupon. It's first edition so missing a lot of the pictures and patch examples but those are related to Moog mostly I believe. Didn't mind since 100% of the profits go to a charity organization for youth that are in foster care, out of school or homeless.
