Oof yeah I saw that this morning, I am diggggggggin them sounds.


Thanks peeps. Went to WMD yesterday and ended up picking up two because there were just too many things I wanted to try. This thing is amazing. I’m willing to bet and hope that it’ll become their best selling module. It’s that good. It can do these dirty bell sounds in the experimental mode and these weird noisy drones. Amazing. Will post some eventually. Gonna post more shit later using the input, too. Out of town for thre week though >.<

huh. that reminds me of when i was about 17, playing a warehouse party, and whilst walking to setup a friend that was selling acid (he had a bottle of liquid that he would put drips onto sugar cubes when purchased) got jostled and spilled an ass load across my neck. i noticed enough to wipe it in, but not what it was. thank God's Firm Love Handles that i had tripped a fair bit before. halfway through our first song i was like, "hurm. well. i'm on acid.".

first and last time i ever played altered. i was KILLING IT. trying new fast runs in places, making up chords no human had ever heard, manipulating TIME AND SPACE WITH 4 STRINGS AND A DISTORTION PEDAL.

then i watched the vidja after.

oh. oh no. oh no honey. that's not right. i was immobile, playing one, completely wrong note, every 10 or 15 seconds. tempo and song structure were no longer my friend. i had let composition beat my ass then told the authorities that i fell down some stairs and it knew it could have it's way with me so i was left there visibly drooling as i plinked away incoherently.

good times?

Sounds ssiiiiiick. Have been playing a lot of bo(n)g standard heffy meeeetul bass recently (funny how that goes) so I haven't really been doing much with modular or computer music at the mo'.

thanks!

murf. i MISS bass. but every time i sit down to set up my amp and try to incorporate the disparate approaches i realize i need to run through some tutorials on the Assy8Thousand or practice the button combos on the Metron or..... then i've been noodling/learning modular shizz for a few hours.

Took advantage of Memorial Day sales to get a Doepfer SEM-type filter.

Been really into the idea of running Plaits into it in chord mode to get some big Oberheim-type sounds. Tried that setup with a Wasp filter but it gets too gnarly.

I'm really loving my setup too. I was messing around earlier to record a few sound clips for Okta:

I got one of these to run my modular through but haven't had the Mental Energy to set the thing up yet.

I expect it will allow my beats to sound dope.

No enclosure! I am living in d... d... d... danger. It's such a little wee gadget I don't think much harm can come to it through being exposed. I've had a Bug Brand Boardweevil for pretty much ever which has no enclosure and runs strong as the day it arrived at my doorstep.

Yooooooooo X-pan is dope. Lot of muffwiggler peenie weenies seem to be bias'd against make noise hype and the fact the panning isn't linear or whatever so posted this to ruffle some feather over there. Seriously though, I installed the module and made a sick patch in about fifteen minutes, went home, tweaked it some more and got it on tape in like two hours cumulative time. Shit rules.

Throwing in my experience after receiving my X-pan this week. I wanted a crossfade/panning module after my first drum'n'bass/electronic set with my rack. I saw the X-pan announcement and preordered. All the weird mixing possibilities with eurorack is ultimately what keeps me wiggling. (Three Sisters is a favorite module as a result.) The X-pan definitely has expanded those possibilities in my system. I understand some people are concerned about specs like the non-linear panning curve or whatever... that's not really of much concern to me. I dropped in the X-pan and made a really satisfying ambient patch, tweaked it, and recorded onto my 4 track within my first two hours of use. Inviting/intuitive interface, ease of use, and fun results... works for me. :thumb:
