WOOT indeed. I love Control as well, and they are in Brooklyn (where Whimsical Raps are based), so I don't know why their stock lags behind other folks. :idk:

I like that it has so many outputs and inputs to make a mess out of.

My goal is to sequence melodies which, as others have noted, the Voltage Block does not do particularly well.

Anyone here messed with that before?

Or, is the thing I'm looking for actually a quantizer?


I believe the Z8000 is not a quantized sequencer, if you want to do scalar melodies with it you would need a quantizer to go with it. Writing precise melodies on it might be more guesswork than certain sequencers that have some sort of scale input interface. It does look like a very fun sequencer though. If had more room, money, etc I would love to own one.

I've been looking for one of these Pittsburgh Patch Boxes for a while and finally found one. I've mainly wanted it for processing guitar and standalone synths, but I will also slowly build from here. Got µBurst to start out, but I've got some more modules on the way. Also what are your favorite effect modules?

I just flipped my O+C for a uO+C, with the sole intention of putting Hemispheres on it. Such a fantastic idea, and dude seems committed to developing it further. Hyped.

I love the 4ms DLD and the Strymon Magneto, although I feel like the Magneto is still new to me and so can only recommend it with that caveat. When Clouds II comes out something will likely have to go and it will probably come down to my Magneto or my Morphagene, the DLD is probably here to stay.

As a note: unless you want a lot of clocks and minimal CV control, there's absolutely no reason to get a Magneto instead of an El Capistan.

I definitely like the DLD, could be lots of fun for looping if you're into that. I'd definitely be on the look out for what the next clouds is going to be

DLD is super nice. i never use the looping so i'm going to try the Chronoblob in her place for a bit, see if i miss the two sides? which is how i mostly use it. one input, the two outs vacillating between division options.

I'm definitely interested in all those delays. I've also played the Eventide DDL which seems really nice. I think the DLD would be best suited for this format if I could find an offset module to let me use the switches as triggers/gates. And I'm definitely on the lookout for the new Clouds, but I read Olivier said it will most likely be next year

Does anyone have one of those ARC Serge TKB euro controller thingums? Curious to know or see a pic of how much clearance there is between the faceplate and the pcb behind it - considering banana-fying it if it's not too crazy.
