Re: Re:

Overall the sound is morphing, like a flute always trying to become a double reed, and occasionally (the sweet spots) becoming a sort of little synthetic, glassy, human voice. Next time I will recreate the sound from this starting point, then try to tightly control it, to make Odessa "talk" as clea...

Re: why do you prefer modular hardware to software?

I like both but probably wouldn’t bother with hardware if software was capable of the same sounds. I’m not computer shy and midi controllers are pretty cool by my standards.

You definitely are a victim of gas though, Solipsvs and don’t pretend you haven’t known that for a good ten years now, lol!

Re: New vco needs and questions

I like really clean and simple analog VCOs and very characterful digital VCOs. Clean analog VCOs so that I feel like I’m creating the character of the sound myself rather than capitalizing on the richness of flawed waveforms. Precise analog in my mind also allows for more precision in my FM patches....

Re: what is the most exotic/bizarre sounding module you own

Thru zero frequency modulating my Rubicon while it’s running at LFO rates and twisting all the knobs has yielded some nice chaos.

Seems like this one would be a good buy these days. Unfortunately the only demos I can seem to find are cheesy harpsichord patches and your usual slew of synth wave sounds.

Re: New AKAI "FORCE" standalone MPC / grid controller

I'd be interested to hear some positive reviews as well. The NAMM video showed off some really interesting features but not too many people seem super hyped about this machine. Unfortunately the dude in the NAMM video almost seemed to imply that these really aren't selling well.

Come to think of it, the E352, in 2-Op FM mode, has selectable fixed ratios between modulator and carrier.
I’ll have to check and see if the second output is just the modulator. It probably is. That could make for some easy digital to analog FM action.

Re: Choosing the right power supply is driving me mad :(

I’ve had 2 cases with intellijel power supplies and I can say they are reliable, quiet, and give plenty of headroom on power front. And if you have issues with plugging things in backwards (like me) they have some protection for that as well.

Re: Intellijel Morgasmatron, Planar II, and Rubicon II

I’ve made some really great sounds with the Rubi 2, a Dixie, and a wavefolder. The Rubicon really allows for a lot of far out sounds ranging from faux acoustic to crazy space madness. Definitely a high end piece of gear to my ears.

I don’t see why not. Shapeshifter is a deep module. Problem is you’ll probably find amazing sounds along the way to distract you.

Sounds a bit like a tone through a bitcrusher / reducer with random qualities at extreme settings I have to say that when someone asks how a sound is made it is almost never going to involve a bitcrusher. Lo-fi waves? Yeah, probably but faking lo-fi sounds (most but crusher effects) in a pleasing m...

Re: looking for a specific vco

Well the bass definitely has a filter in there. When you make very complex FM sounds and filter them with high resonance you’re going to get those really tech-y sounds.

Oh, I finally get it, TZFM that is.
Your speakers spit out a great sound, then you modulate it down to zero.
The TZFM oscillator stops and then starts to go backwards.
Then your speakers suck the sound back in. :doh:

Re: looking for a specific vco

I don’t think a BBD is going to cut it. Something like the 4ms DLD would be more on point. MaxMSP would be the cheapest and most versatile route. Crazy how these guys have practically built their career around Karplus Strong synthesis.

Re: looking for a specific vco

If you want to sound like Autechre you might be better off worrying about what your delay feedback network looks like rather than what digital oscillator you're feeding it.



The Hertz Donut seems like a sound suggestion though.
