Re: Which online backup service for large Media data ?

my cheap & energy efficient solution for backup. here on the pic is what i have at home. there's also another little box at my office for remote backup. i did not even consider „proper“ cloud storage, because storing terabytes costs money that i'm not willing to spend. also, working in a datacenter ...

Re: What is a piece of gear that you will never part with?

MC-707 I'm willing to bet that you'll tire of this one eventually when something more shiny comes out. i hope so, but there are none at the moment. for instance Machine+ or Akai Live/Force are totally different paradigm of gear. before MC-707 was released, it was E-Mu Command Stations for me. i hav...

Excellent! Have the L-12 and really enjoying it, the effects on it are limited but useful. i have L-12 too. the problem with L-12 is that it's not really backpack-friendly. i bought it about a year before L-8 was released. if i knew about L-8 in advance, i would rather buy L-20 :hihi: L-8 fits any ...

Re: A bit of a rant. State of tech in 2020.

What's strange to me is this notion that if a synth is multitimbral but lacks audio outputs for each voice, it's no good. totally agree. The Novation Circuit (I have one and I do enjoy it) is considered to be an "award-winning breakthrough" product for its sequencer. It is not. it definitely is. be...

Re: What new booty did you buy?

no, with synths. here on the pic it's driven with MC-707 and goes back to it for further processing.
i love how it works with basses, but it also turned to work very well with bell-like sounds.

Re: Hardware sequencers that'll import and save MIDI data.

since RM1x and Pyramid are already mentioned above, i just have to add that Roland MC-707 imports standard SMF MIDI files since 1.30 or 1.50 OS update.

edit: oops, 707 is already mentioned too. never mind.

Re: Roland MC-707 Groovebox

Is it possible to change the colour of all the knobs and sliders on the MC? yes, they are all configurable. you can reassign colors per track somewhere in Track settings. but i suspect that it's kept somewhere in project settings, so keeping your custom color layout may require making an empty defa...

Re: Strange MIDI loop question for gear

well, basically you can do it with a lot of gear that has MIDI in and out (either USB or DIN). the downside is that you have to sacrifice some track(s) for this trick to work. i myself do it with my gear, e.g. MC-707. not aware of any gear designed specifically for this use case (without sacrificing...
