I like to look at analog vs digital in a bit of an abstract way.
Lightning never strikes the same place twice. When you press an analog key, the sound is just a bit different every time, and in a very natural, and pleasing way.

The bitbox is a really great sampler. Fun to use. Fun to chop loops and feed CV to make wild beats. Touch screen is nice for editing, and can even be used for performance in a pinch. Load a ton of samples on one micro card, and just drag and drop from your computer to card, plug it in, and a new lib...

I stopped worrying about price. Lol. I typically go for the modules that have multiples of the things they do. Like the synthrotek quad envelope. Or the Octocontroller. A bit more pricey but i feel like this is a way to get value. I also have my long list of modules that I want. Most of them are up ...

One of my favorite things to do wih random cv is feed it into the x and y axis on the grids. I also use it a lot to control filter cutoff. Turing Machine is great for the locking of random and the repitition makes it no longer random. I find lots of great grooves this way. Also randomizing the fall ...

I just patch my standard clock setup as step one. I don’t mind patching it, and I kind of like that its a warm up patch that is just about auto pilot. I think of what I am going to patch while I get my clocks and resets ready for sync.

The Fold by Synthrotek has a built in ring modulator, and you also get a wave folder. The kit is rather easy to build. Or you can get it assembled. If you go with a Disting you will find a ringmod and much more.

Yep. any envelope will work. ADSR, or AR, or AD, ETC... There are a few DIY envelopes available. If you like to solder, you can save some $$

Rubicon + Maths. I think I could patch a nice bass drop with these two modules. The cycle button can be used as a trig too. The rubicon has a lovely sine. If you go with a resonant filter instead of an oscillator you get the nice pure sine tone. When its not making bass, it can filter things. If you...

Is one of them the Disting? If you don't already have one, I would suggest that one. If I find myself using my disting for a particular thing (wave folder for example). I would know then that my next module should be a wave folder. Then that frees up the disting to be used for something else. I have...

I find transitions from one patch to another can be made easy by switching between beat driven, and ambient non beat driven stuff, and back again. Sometimes with a full ambient contrasting change, you can even change up the tempo and drop in a fully different genre beat (DNB to Ambient to Dubstep to...
