Re: Mountain Lion

While it is true that a lot of the iOS interface elements are being brought over to OS X, things I've read seem to indicate that there's no intention for the two OSes to merge into one. I suppose that could change if they started making touchscreen Macs or something, but the way you interact with th...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

The FM alone is enough to pay an extra $80 for. Not to mention the wacky hard sync modulation thing, and the fact that it has an almost painfully precise frequency display and will go LFO slow. It's a real fine oscillator...the main reason I ditched mine was a combination of Malekko lust and digging...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

If you're going to spend that much on a case, I'd skip the used Doepfer and start looking at a monorocket, personally. Plenty of people use the Doepfers and everything, but they're overpriced, and I do believe I've heard of power supply failures or some such. Even if it performs flawlessly, I wouldn...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

I can tell you that the z3000 is a real quality oscillator...I had one for a while. The good thing about both it and the Malekko osc that just came out is that they'll go down into LFO range, so you're getting double functionality there. The Bubblesound uLFO will also go up into VCO range, maybe not...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

If you stir in a Maths right off the bat, you'll find that you're able to make a lot more complex patches...it's mainly an "envelope," but so much more. Even patching it into itself yields all kinda fuxxor. Another thing that might save you cash is to look at VCFs that have low pass gate functionali...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

Yeah, and though I have little experience with either, I suppose things like Reaktor and obviously Max would allow for real free running too.

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

The problem with software is that none of it allows you to get into the real magic of modulars: free running patches that don't require gates and triggers and such. I had the MFB sequencer for a while, but the current state of my rig is free of any input devices or sequencing, just pure modulation. ...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

Those little cases are cute and everything, but you'll just feel you've outgrown it like, immediately. I have the Modular World 6u case with built-in multiples and attenuators, and while even that is ultimately (way) too small, at least you can get some semblance of a complete system shoehorned into...

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

Yeah, Cwejman is indeed some real nice shit, but get out your wallet. Bubblesound is nice too, I have a uLFO...great device.

Re: If I wanted to ease into the modular synth world...

I have a small modular, and I can give you one bit of personal opinion: The Doepfer stuff I've tried in my rack has been perfectly functional and everything, but has also bored the shit out of me. I am totally in love with the Malekko/Wiard modules, I have a MakeNoise Maths that is fantastic (had tw...

Well, it's definitely more focused than anything I've done for the past 15 years. It's feelin' pretty good. Thanks for another round of encouraging words. :)

Re: your dad's oldsmobile

Pretty good day...won $1000 in the Yerba Buena thing, and rough-mixed yet another coco classic.

I don't believe it, I think I'm going to shit out an entire album this year. Luvz U, Ableton.

Re: your dad's oldsmobile

I'm not going to lie, it's not some kinda fantastic preamp, as it's a "master volume" sort of setup where the gain stage is isolated, but it has an actual 12AX7 in it, provides phantom power, and definitely warms signal quietly. I figured the $30 was a clearance price, but I bought my pair probably ...
