jimmie Yes, both pieces took a lot of planning and time to program, several days each. I totally understand your point, it is not "playing an instrument" at all. On the other side, you know, we can call this video an improvisation, but not artists' - it is like you let your machine to improvise, fe...

MS70CDR is absolutely unbeatable for what it can offer for the price, it's a steal! I have been really hoping Zoom will make an upgrade version of it, synth/modular user in mind, like 8 param knobs and soft switches, and CVins. Make it under $300, it would sell like crazy! It's the chance, zoom!

I guess the Tempest has some kind of tb-303-ish fate. Of course T will not get that hype, here is what I mean: at first 303 was made to play instead of a bass player in a "live" band and failed. We all know what happened after. The Tempest was created as a drum machine, but in my hands it tends to ...

It's so often the same patch doesn't yield the same result. It's not because of the subtle knob position; more likely the caps' condition etc. So to replicate something exactly, even chord patching order needs to be in mind, or even more is that sometimes plugged some jack and then umplugged it (to ...

If you're after the 'noise' kind of sound you may get similar sound by connecting a 3 roll to ultrasound (try browns), and the roll needs to be modulated by other 4 (and 3) rollz somewhat complicated way. I get that kind of sound much easier with rolz5 whose rolls are not voltage controlled.

Each deerhorn located on far end may matter controllability.

I have an original MS20. ptich to cv tracking isn't great but the level of input and hi/low cut filtering make huge difference to accuracy of tracking. without actually measuring though I'd try to filter out the partials as much and focus on the fundamental freq for the input signal. again, the leve...

as long as you're within CL gears, you can patch anything to anything. just don't forget to connect black to black when cross patching.

when you cross patch non CL gear, it's safe to avoid connecting browns.

PB has 3 line inputs: Gongues, AvDogs, and Deerhorn. Gongue's external in is filter, AvDog's like weird tremolo and Deerhorn does only volume change. Gongue and AvDogs' ins are not super clean so you get some character to the input signal. But nothing like harmonizer/pitchshifter or other modulation...

Personally I think many CL insts sound best at raw, because I feel they sound kinda more like acoustic insts than electric something. light reverb for atmospheric space isn't bad, tho. but I prefer to play them on amplifier (so not line-mixer-monitor) and real room acoustics. But it also sounds good...
