Rene 2 is here and it is fucking great so far. Some actions take more button taps than Rene v1 but the ease of navigation on v2 more than makes up for it. Super easy to tell where you're at all the time.

inb4 1u clouds/braids. :lol:

I mean, one of the reasons Braids was put on the shelf was because it was mostly used as background voice, so that would fit it.

1U disting would also be amazing.

i sawwwww on ModGid that someone 1u'd the Expert Sleepers MIDI interface. i would be okayyyyy with a horizontal MIDI to CV.

woot! Schenk guy has some Pequeno Interruptor's back in stock. 1 hp generic 6 switch thing, supposed to work well with Batumi. ordered black panels for the 2hp Kick, Snare and Hat and a Metabolic Devices Coherence.

i looooove the Morgasmatron, but keeping it in my rack means i have to take the DU-RDT out to make room for Coherence. but mannnn the options on the Morgasmo are BANANANANANAS.

dilemma.

V. curious about this one and hope you'll provide a review.

It's like, uh, a chaos quantizer?

lol. i thinnnnnnk? it takes two (preferably slope'y) moving cv inputs and in rhythmically useful ways logics the SHIT out them for gate and pitch outs.

i am SUPER excited to explore it, word on the street (mostly from Hainbach) is that it's the beauty of Happy Accidents Chaos with a more Reliable Results container.

this is what got me super moist for one -



also, i dunno WHAT the fuck i was thinking trying to downsize without the FLXS. that thing is so damn amazing.

I played around with running Metropolis as a drum sequencer for Plaits today with Stages doing some pitch sequencing and it worked really well. Had never considered using Metropolis for anything besides basic oscillator sequencing, but I should have known it would be good at that too. Hadn't even started modulating it's internal parameters yet.
Also ran the OP-1 into Disting's filter, which was being modulated by two LFOs from Stages. It all became a super cohesive and groovy setup, instant half hour jam session.

It's a really nice feeling having a rack that doesn't have any big functional gaps and that can merge pretty well with non-modular stuff too.

awesome!

yeah, i've dabbled with using the FLXS for drums. it's.... okay. Deluge is wayyyyyy better since i can see all 4 gate out patterns at the same time.

but was using FLXS as a super specific yet evolving CV out into the pitches of the Shard. MAGNIFIQUÉ.

also, at a tat thing real quick then home for thisssssss -

WOOT.

two modules i've never owned!

but this thing has weird, beautiful range.

can't record anything till tonight or tomorrow night, but after going wowwwww like it was a Moffenzeef video for 15 minutes found an awesome angry noise.

also, what the hell? ordered Coherence from Perfect Circuit Monday, because it's them or the Europe Side builders, and they shipped Monday, should be here Wednesday?

you.... you feeling okay PC? that's ridiculously good and helpful shipping times. you a'ight bebe?

Cs-L should be here tomorrow. Will likely take the place of my E352, which I'm not digging on as much as I thought I would.

it's such an interesting take on noise design. very different than any other module i have. sooooooo looking forward to learning her ins and outs, plumping up her tail-feathers, kicking the tires off of her.

like a GOAT.

in HEAT.
