Finally got a Plaits today! (Thanks, Lumena.)

It really does pair so well with Stages. I played around for a while just using the two as a simple drum machine. Went very nicely with the M32 doing bass lines.
Can easily see how two of each would make a beast of a set on their own. I could jam on it for hours.

I’m considering putting myself into slight credit card debt for a Magneto. Anyone have any hot takes on it vs a Clouds as a modular ambience machine?

I've never owned Magneto, but my endless love for delay is making me really want one. It really does seem like one of the best, full featured delays available in euro and it sounds so, so good. Fuck, I need to stop watching Magneto videos and stick to the original plan (which does include a Magneto, but not for a long while)

Clouds was really cool and is great for ambient, but I did end up falling into a lot of the same kinds of sounds every time I used it in a patch. That wasn't necessarily a bad thing, though; it was still really, really good.

oooooo VERY cool Skully! i like the progression a lot. MEOW.

tried a more mellow, somewhat generative thing. Just Friends controlling the vca's opening for Mangrove and Three Sisters for the underlying crackly noise, Mimetic DigDig sending the melody into Rings -

I love it!
I have not heard enough modular stuff like this, it’s refreshing and exactly what I am getting into it for.

I finally had time to re-organize my case with the Teletype and the Txi/Txo expanders I bought some time ago. The Teletype really makes me want to somehow have less modules. The interface is really intuitive for me and there are so many possibilities that some other modules kind of feel redundant...

Anyway, there's even less chances than before of me getting beyond that 7U case now.

THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL. THAT'S THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION I WANT TO GO.

also, Osc'y, what modules do you find irrelevant now?

Well, mostly sequencing and some modulation sources.

For example, I have a Pico Sequencer, which is nice and cute and all, but I can replicate what it does easily with a better interface now. Also, I haven't played much with my Txo expander but it's basically 4 more gates outputs and 4 more CV outputs, and these ones can be envelopes, LFOs, even audio rate oscillators (though with some aliasing).

Some aspects of Pamela's workout can be achieved efficiently with TT, but they're actually good partners too (Pamela's workout sending triggers to Teletype) and the big nice start/stop button is on Pamela. Tough assigning a script to start/stop the metro script on TT is super easy and that can be controlled with one key too. Or just typing "M.ACT 0" or "M.ACT 1" in live mode.

I need to spend more time with the whole system to be sure of what makes sense and what doesn't, though... And I don't have that much music time these days.
