Not Vlad here ;) but a SOMA employee, a musician! I would wholeheartedly disagree with the above statement and with all due respect. Although it has lots of character and Vlad is certainly there ( imo its an awesome thing at a time when most are concerned with getting clones sounding right ;). It h...

as much as we'd like to bend the pulsar to our will and be something it isn't, we need to also accept things as they are. this is vlad and soma's aesthetic, this is what the pulsar sounds like, and it is what it is.

Yeah, that's exactly the email I got.

The first person to write to me was @electricanada, and then @Devinital, so let me offer it to electricanada, and if they fall through, it's all yours Devinital!

i suspect the pulsar is a sibling of the lyra, and only really does "brutal" / industrial well. am i mistaken?

well, that's too bad. all i wanna hear is a pro with the pulsar straight up, no muss no fuss. not vlad, not soma, not some trade convention, but an extended pulsar-only composition. nothing off screen, no hidden magic. having said that, i'm looking forward to sequencing the pulsar with bitwig, of co...

if the sequencing is happening within the box, then this is a whole another beast - it is self contained! i don't need anything else. i read up a bit about the loopers, but still a bit confused - how long do they loop? is it based on "bars"? (no shade/subtext here - i'm a big fan of vlad, and know h...

in richard's videos, how is the pulsar playing "by itself"? is there an external midi clock or sequencer playing the pulsar? or is there a way to setup sequences and evolving loops within the box? if so, then this is very good. (this is a genuine question, meant in earnest ... i don't know enough ab...

i figure the rightmost cable is a 200e system cable; so i removed it
and i also removed the midi cable (the leftmost)

i then connected the power cable to my boat and.... seems ok. nothing seems to have blow up yet anyway...

can the marf be used a voice? i read somewhere someone was using it for "two oscillators", does that mean as two voices?

if so, then a 208 + a marf is a a fantastic combo isn't it?
