Re: Hardware sequencer

Yeah, good time to buy a new OT off the Elektron site. To get some Cirklon perspective, YES it seems to be the new gold standard in hardware sequencers, and if you have that kind of coin to 'try one out,' and dont mind waiting about 6 months, at least if it turns out you dont like it, you may even b...

Re: Hardware sequencer

The Cirklon sure seems like the best there is.
I was on the waiting list for a while and backed out realizing I didnt need that much.
I was on the fence for a while between an MPC1000 and an Octatrack.

Went for the Octatrack, and I love it.

Re: Aphex Twin -- Ableton Live

Funny, I wasn't as into electronic music when those things were coming out. Only recently did I get some Analord records, I think some of them are pretty amazing. I'm not a huge Aphex Twin fan, but RDJ is definitely fascinating to me. I love nerding out on long discussions about gear, so that interv...

Re: Soft synth with dedicated hardware controller?

I still use Ableton Live to record. Sometimes I sync Live and multitrack stuff and edit in Live, or connect multiple outs to a soundcard and record them into Live. Lately I have just been working everything up on the hardware and running stereo out from my mixer to Live and just capturing the whole ...

Re: Soft synth with dedicated hardware controller?

I too went ITB from hardware, around Live version 3. Then the APC40 and M4L came out. I wasted 5 years trying to decide how to set up Live and controllers. First thing I got going back to hardware was a Slim Phatty. It was almost comical how good it sounded and how easy it was to dial in sounds I li...

Re: Soft synth with dedicated hardware controller?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EbTqZQ4efs Fairly good example of what you might be after, at least as far as set up goes. MPC1000 has 2 midi ins and 2 midi outs. Considering most gear has midi thru, the MPC makes for a good central piece when building up to a bigger rig. If you get to the point w...

Re: Soft synth with dedicated hardware controller?

Never owned one, but the Yamaha RMX1 is supposed to be great, as a sequencer. Sounds are not so hot. MPC1000 seems to be one of the staples. You can sequence external gear, sample, arrange, jam, whatever. With the JJOS upgrade, even better. Electribes are cool. New ones coming out. There's also the ...
