And finally, an overview and “getting started” tutorial video :)

I hope Flame is giving you some love for all the publicity. This machine is one of those sleeper hits I think, so it’s good to see some new vids!

Re: new Synthi inspired machine coming from Erica Synths

Neither of us have yet to received shipping notification. I was in the first day or two and nothing here - but I’m still not counting out that there i...

Re: Polysynths - Wanted - vibe over facts - Experience over spec

I agree we should have more Continuum discussion. I'm working on other stuff right now but I will get back to banging my head against the Eaganmatrix eventually. I got a mini just so I could play with the matrix while on trains, planes and beaches. Now of course I’m at home with my half size instea...

Re: Polysynths - Wanted - vibe over facts - Experience over spec

No idea if it counts as a poly synth but getting a Haken Continuum was life changing. It just sounds and feels amazing. Programming it is very different but rewarding (all done on an attached computer, patching is Synthi pegboard style but with formulas instead of pegs). It can create sounds that so...

Re: Flame Mäander new Wavetable Desktop Synthesizer w Filterbank

Regarding setup integration, I haven't played with the external audio input yet, but being able to sequence it through the filterbank as well, could probably tie a performance with multiple instruments together nicely. I’m still getting the hang of using it with external audio - so far my results h...

Re: Who prefers the workflow of modular drum setups?

Pieced together a full system years ago. Drum modules, sequencer, mixer. Have not used it since I got an Analog Rytm. Really need to put it up for sale. So I bought a Rytm II. Loved it but it kept crashing in ways I’ve never seen in any gear I’ve ever owned (and I’ve been buying this stuff since th...

Re: Decent Recording Setup for Hand Drums?

I’m fond of omnis for close mic-ing of drums. My fave in that department come from Earthworks https://earthworksaudio.com/drum-kits/ but they’ve gotten more expensive since when I started doing drum recording 20 years ago. I like them because you get a very flat response across a crazy wide frequenc...

Re: Flame Mäander new Wavetable Desktop Synthesizer w Filterbank

I’m liking it so far! Ordered last Saturday and came yesterday from Germany. Meanwhile my modular order from the US over a week ago still isn’t here! Going to dig in deeper this weekend, but love the fact that you can sequence each filterband - that’s kinda crazy.

Re: Kudos to Make Noise!

All I can say is: why is the red stripe negative? I know this now and am used to it, but when first started up in euro, I literally read the opposite because that made more sense. I’m lucky I never messed it up, esp since usually my play time is after a long rough work day and a drink.

Re: Tiny laptop for Max/msp

I bought a refurbished Surface Go! for use with my Haken Continuumini when I travel. It’s so tiny but works really well for the editor (which I think is written in Max).

And gonna check XotoPad - def am a fan of touch and outside of iOS it seems to be ignored as a music UI gamechanger.

Wow, I’m kinda liking that pink.
Yeah - the pink put me over the edge. Ordered!
