Re: Lonely life in Modular Land.

I certainly feel your pain to some degree. Admittedly, on my personal social media I actually do get a little enthusiasm from people who don't really understand what I'm doing, but think the sight of all the patch cables and PCBs etc are cool. Have you tried inviting a friend to come make weird nois...

In general, I think you'll find it's far more common and flexible if you let digital be a part of the equation. But if that's not an option, one thing you might look at is the Happy Nerding FM Aid, which despite its name is essentially a waveshaper that'll turn a ramp/upward moving saw into a sine, ...

I just got mine, and after a couple minutes of noodling I can say this is definitely my favorite filter I've owned, and almost certainly a keeper. However , these LEDs are bright enough that it feels like I'm staring directly into a flashlight. Can anyone confirm if these dim a little bit after a wh...

Interesting, does the Morphagene process live audio better? Like everyone else I was trying to decide between the two. I went with the Nebulae because its cheaper, separate pitch and speed, and the controls seemed more straightforward. I basically want something that I can do sound on sound looping...

So what's the limit on the length of samples gonna be? About 20 seconds. For two stereo convolvers running + one convolution being precalculated.. this is about the limit of the Raspberry Pi.. It should be enough for resonators and reverbs, at least. well that's definitely more than I'd expected. Y...

I noticed the Aux channel's inputs are labeled "M" and an "Si" respectively (dont currently have headphones to hear how it sounded when you patched something to it though). Is it possible to do mid-side processing on the output, and then feed it back in? I'm thinking that is more like a "M" for Mon...

Alternatively, if you already have enough randomness sources, you could get yourself a sequential switch. I'm guessing from your username you're a fan of the Music Easle? Verbos has a module called Sequence Selector (pretty on the nose name), which is essentially the sequencer from the Easle, combin...

If you're willing to put some learning time in, SuperCollider and CSound have way more physical modelling algorithms to go around than most software, and they're both 100% free. Pure Data does as well, but you have to download them seperately.

Re: forest birds

Can you achieve this kind of natural sound digitally? Pretty much, yeah (unless you're looking for the distortions that are present in that recording, and not just the pitching down). Here's a recording done with a digital field recorder, played at regular speed first, then played pitched down to 4...

Throwin my hat in to say that I'd also strongly prefer dedicated outputs for gates based on state. I understand the reasoning for *not* having them too, but I think it'd add a whole lot, even if it meant a couple more HP as a result.

beat-oriented minimal electronic music

There's a certain sound I've been fond of which I've only found in a few songs, and generally only in sections of the song overall. Assuming everyone here's heard Angel by Massive Attack, I think it could be most easily summarized as the very beginning part of that song, when everything's fairly qui...

One thing I highly recommend if you'rs looking for less traditional drum sounds is a wavetable oscillator with a short envelope over its pitch. It can also be combined with white noise, but even without that I've gotten good results. Dinky's Taiko, for ecample, is pretty much what I just described: ...
