There are rogue psy-trance parties @ the belmont plateau in Philadelphia. They are experienced at throwing legendary renegade parties in the pine barrens. No permits. Generator, decks and a mixer. They do it during the day now so I guess it's less likely to get broken up.

Having just completed some tiny little boards for my first couple projects. This looks insane. How many hours are we talking here? I guess the bigger boards might be easier to work with rather than the tiny little projects I was putting together?

Wait a tick... According to the intro video on the ES website, they say "connect it to your mac or iOS device". Is this not compatible with Windows? Seems unlikely, but almost 500 dollars is a lot to spend to not be sure.

Thank you! I'm pretty happy with my audio I/O right now so I'd hate to buy another one just for this functionality. Might consider it when it's time for a new one someday.

Fair point, what I mean is if the cost of the interface and the ES-3 surpasses the cost of the ES-8, I can just use the ES-8 via USB connection, no?

Hello, this is not entirely of-topic, but I'm wondering if the ES-8 Alone will eliminate the need for a optical out from an audio interface (which I don't have) and allow me to use Live's CV tools via a USB connection to the PC. CV tools look cool to mess with, but the price of equipment that I thou...

CV Tools for Ableton Live

Has anyone seen the new capabilities from Ableton Live? I saw a video explaining them and was wondering if anyone has used them with their rig. Apparently if you route audio into Live, you can have Live calibrate the V/Oct signal so that the oscillator will stay in tune over multiple octaves. Seems ...

Go for the ones they did before that. Erpland, Pungent Effulgent and Strangeitude. You won't be dissappointed. Those early ones are full of fresh ideas and amazing playing, also very cool synth stuff by Joie Hinton (their original keyboardist). Their latter stuff is basically recycling the best ide...

still good new stuff out there, but harder to find, seems like more than 80% of it is just completely formulaic and uninspired. Got any suggestions?

Ozrics are huge. So funny how things work out. I used to have a bunch of live Disco Biscuits shows on cd and tapers would just add whatever to the end of the last disc in the set for any given show but it wouldn't be noted anywhere what it was. "Stretchy" From Jurassic Shift was on one and it blew m...

This may not help you with your rack, but I was using a pulse from an alternate audio out from Ableton into Tempi to sync with the DAW. I recently got a keystep and this can be synced through USB to Live and you can send a gate or sync signal to your rack. Not everyone has a Tempi, but a lot of peop...
