Re: Cool Standalone Boxes - Like Benjolin or ?

I'm a big fan of the Benjolin, and have two in my Eurorack case, though I've seen them as standalone devices too, which looks fun. I also have a Grendel Drone Commander, which I enjoy. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some other cool instruments that are standalone tabletop boxes and fun f...

Re: Roland TR-06, TR-6s, TR-606 (cloud)

FYI, my TR-6S is on the way from Sweetwater. Ditto but from DetMod. Reasons I decided to order a brand new drum machine instead of a couple used shitty drum machines: 1. I don't have any Roland x0x in my set-up at present and really, not at all. Just some 808 samples in the DR-5 and SC-33. Looking ...

Re: Favorite FX units for drum machines?

KORG Kaoss Pad 3 for gain and digital FX nearly infinite.

Malekko Charlie Foxtrot for glitch adventures (controllable).

MASF Possessed for glitch adventures (less controllable).

CV over algo change is massive. The Irukandji doesn't have that but it does have 1,000 rabid Nintendos inside.

"Splinter tone" by David B. Applegate released today

Pastoral electronics for dislocated dreamers. Please enjoy.

I recorded this album using only a 42 hp eurorack modular. No external processing or multi-tracking.

Flame Echometer is the craziest MIDI sequencer I've ever heard. Difficult to explain exactly what it does. Splatter kills three notes, I guess.

Re: Proteus 2000 data entry knob not entering data?

As an alternative, I used a Bourns PEC16-4215F-N0024 to fix my XL1. They are only $1.18 at Mouser. I may even have one spare that you can have. This is good to know. Thank you for the offer of the spare part but I was able to return the Proteus 2k to the vendor. In case anyone here is worried about...

Proteus 2000 data entry knob not entering data?

Long shot q. but anyone here have experience with the Proteus 2000 data knob not entering any data?

I can navigate the screen using the cursor buttons but turning the knob does nothing.

Any thoughts welcome!

Thanks.

Re: Any justification for waldorf blofeld in this day and age?

The prime justification for a Blofeld in 2020 is the randomize button. Randomizing Blofeld patches yields absolutely incredible results. If not at first, then after a few tries or a few hundred... no matter, it's an instantaneous process.

Re: Qu-Bit Bloom

I've been working with Bloom on and off for about a month now. I have mixed feelings overall but I'm hoping an update or two with smooth the experience out. I'm having a problem at the moment where none of the knobs change pitch. Bloom only outputs a single pitch, regardless of what I do. Powered u...

Re: envelopes with an integrated VCA?

I have been using the PICO MOD for quite some time but needed more envelopes so bought Doepfer A-142-4 Quad Decay. It has four, you see.

Edit: Wait a minute, the Doepfer A-142-4 Quad Decay doesn't have a built in VCA. :waah:

Well, I agree with all the points posted above. The Akemie's Taiko is a drum voice that can be used melodically or noisily or insanely or glitchy. It seems so much more than a drum module to me. Like, the TipTop Snare Drum is a drum module to me whereas the Akemie's Taiko is so much more to me. One ...

Of course, I am a single man and only have one opinion so eat this with a grain of salt but... KARP and DU-KRPLS have nothing to do with Akemie's Taiko. I have all three racked up permanently in my exceptional 208hp drum machine synthesizer rack and would describe them in the following manner. KARP:...

No, of course not. This was merely an example. One might also claim Volca New Tube is a TB-303 killer... but one would be wrong.

I have many illuminating opinions on this New Tube synth from Korg Volca. 1. One cannot suppose this sounds even a smidgen close to the classic Transistor Bass Three Oh Three. That characteristic sound has been mangled here by the tube tech. If they continue to play up the false claim of "warmth" I ...
