Re: Modules that FEEL good

I understand why so many people want everything to be as small as possible, but I am always ready to sacrifice more hp for modules that were designed to be playable. :bananaguitar: :rock: :minimoog: I agree. I dont like when the pots are small and hard to wiggle. I really like the feel of Make Nois...

Re: If you were starting over; what would you do differently?

I really wished that I bought a slightly bigger case that could lie down on my desk. My doepfer can only be operated standing up (due to a poorly placed electricity connection) and that has always been a slight annoyance. Besides that I am pretty pleased. I do get GAS but I have managed to sell most...

Re: would you recommend a modular to someone new to making music?

Absolutely I would. Having said that, they would need to put the time in learning like anyone doing any form of music. Even if something seems simple, it takes time to master the simplicity. I think in the same way. I also assume, if I would recommend someone to go modular, that they have an intere...

Sure why not, if they seemed to have an interest with synthesis and modular synths in general.

Here's Herbie Hancock talking about Miles Davis and musical "accidents". (The "accident" story starts at around 2:22, but the whole interview is worth watching.)


Moral: There are no accidents.
I love that clip. Miles really had a way with melodies and harmony

Re: Audio Interface - How to choose?

Everything in totalmix can be mapped to a MIDI controller, so you can almost have a mixer with faders if you feel like going that way. Yeah I have thought about that too and I will probably get myself a nice midi-controller! My first thought was to route everything through my old mixing desk - so t...

Re: Audio Interface - How to choose?

Let us know how it works out. Okay I have used the interface for almost a month now and I thought it is time to give my first impressions. Right of the bat: this piece of hardware is amazing. The sound is very precise. First thing I did was to plug in my turntables straight into the balanced inputs...

Re: Electronic music is the music of automation and accidents

Maybe electronic music is a bit more prone towards accidental and random music making as it comes from jamming with machines. I always liked that you found melodies together with the machine, instead of thinking how to transcribe the melody that was in my head, for example. But I still think electro...

Re: Can you hear the difference between audio interface A/D converters?

I have noticed a difference when I have upgraded my interface. Not huge, but there is a difference in precision for sure.

But I am also one of those audio nerds

Re: BEGINNERS - What have you always found to be poorly explained?

Offset. I get it. But at the same time, I don't. How do I know I need to offset? I guess I need to write down every module situation in which an offset is needed. Is there a rule of thumb to knowing without having to get out the manual for every module in every situation? I really like Hermbot’s YT...

Re: Do you use a mixing template?

There is for sure some sort of order in my mixes but each track has its own logic and personality :roll: I don't have a template for Ableton - only reason is that I like that it randomize the colour scheme when you open a new project (which gives the new song its own character!) - but I did have a s...

Re: Hit record...Play like a child.

I have to be honest... even though I multiple times have argued for the "record everything" rule, I slowly have started NOT to do that anymore. I jam a lot more these days, without having the computer on, and I rehearse more and more. When I find something that sounds nice, I record it on the phone ...

Re: Small attenuator knobs? The case for and against

I totally get the argument for smaller modules that pack more functionality on a smaller place, with supersmall knobs. But I prefer bigger knobs. I have bought a few small modules but my case get so cramped so I end up using 4hp for a 2hp- module :lol: It’s really funny because when I started buyin...

Re: Audio Interface - How to choose?

So I found a second hand UFX - not the UFX II, the old discountinued model. Im thinking of getting it, but I might as well ask: Is it good? Or is it, for some reason, the one audio interface that RME screved up?

Anyone know if there is major difference between the UFX and the UFX II?

MANY thanks! :)
