I started my MOTM format modular in October 1999 and ordered my first Oakley boards a couple of months later. Somewhere there's a photo of my first Mididac housed in a biscuit tin lid. I'm not sad to see MOTM as a format fall by the wayside in favour of MU - it's just evolution. And as Tony has allu...

Re: Working with hardware from the hstory of electronic musi

par example: the test&measurement studio offer a range of extended techniques for sound synthesis and processing, like the EG&G PAR instruments: I can see a Model 175 in there (basically a four step sequencer, looping/one shot EG) - love mine and of course it never gets enough use... https://www.mu...

I thought about building one some time ago... I don't think it's the right path for me. Doepfer A-198 seams to be the way to go. Thx for the advices. Yep, the softpot is a different/inferior beast to a proper ribbon, and I have to use a pedal interface (MOTM850 in my case), but it's a fun thing to ...

thats a great point chroma! I guess I'm looking to record all kinds of sounds - speech, short sounds, ambience. It's pretty important that the recording device is cheap and portable, but I don't really care if it captures the sounds "accurately" as long as it has character so you're looking for lo-...

Kudos to you Dave. I was in a similar situation a few years ago except with a company I helped found and became de facto COO of. We were acquired and the new owners just drained the passion from the whole enterprise. So I took that leap... My advice: 1) Make sure you get your sums right 2) Make sure...

I'd say everything has been pretty much exclusively MOTM format modular for the last 15 or so years. I'm not a keyboard player, so my monosynths went first, followed by drum machines. I do still use lab gear but within that modular context

Using old lab gear has a unique vibe to it - you never quite know where you'll end up (or why). But it takes up a fuck of a lot of space

There is another side to this.

How else would anyone but my small circle of friends know about me. Bu...

Having no plays/interest doesn't feel great but I can only imagine how bad it must feel to spend £££ on fake likes/plays, while knowing yourself that you have no legit plays. And as member Lisa says you probably still won't get any industry interest anyway. Wow, that must be a feeling of absolute c...

Given Gibson's recent restructuring, the cynic in me thinks they just simply didn't need the IP and therefore the cost of defending it if/when Behringer pop up with their clone
