To be honest it's the not knowing whats next I like.

I get it that the module is linked with the guest as they can open up a whole world of information on their use in a real life situation.

I like the way you go through the evolution of how a module started out in the 100 and developed to it's 200e what was dropped or added.

the 230e might have to be in two parts :hihi: [/quote]

Thanks for that. I broke the cardinal rule and didn't test it. :deadbanana:

Episode 2 of Source of Uncertainty is out!

For the second episode of Source Of Uncertainty we tread into deep waters with the control voltage leviathan known as the Multiple Arbitrary Function Generator Model 248. We are then honored to talk with the iconic composer and Buchla legend Suzanne Ciani!

Enjoy!

DNS and SSL woes. The redirect should be working now. :)

I’ve searched the web, but cannot find an image of Ciani’s 248’s + Klee setup. Does anyone have an image?

Excellent podcast yet again—I don't have a MARF personally, but sitting through the conversation about it really made me reconsider a lot about it. Seeing it in a new light for sure!

Great work folks...looking forward to next month :guinness:

Thanks for listening! It was fun to focus on the MARF, but that's what I tend to think about most of the day anyways :hihi:

Anyone know where get a MARF?

I have several videos of the MARF with my Easel on my Instagram @darksparklermusic.

Bill Lynes that we mention in the podcast might be able to help you out with a v2. He can be reached through his Reverb page: https://reverb.com/shop/modular-express ... dium=share

Cool thanks for the lead on the MARF. Looks like one will be heading my way by the end of the year.

Been enjoying Year One. Good stuff and inspiring.

I basically understand what the modules can do for the most part, but the workflow is a constant source of bewilderment. Easel+AUX+227e Skylab here.

What do you mean by "workflow is a constant source of bewilderment?"

I mean that I love my strange skylab I assembled and I continue to learn things about what it can do every day. I have no idea either why that post is on this thread, it doesn't make sense to me either, carry on.

Great show - both episode are great - bacame a patreon but I can´t see any video for the 266?

Did you make a video for that episode aswell?
So much easier to follow and it would be great with some of your patches?

We didn't record a video of the 266 episode, unfortunately. We realized, starting with the MARF episode, that a video would be really useful, and we will have videos for Patreon going forward. I just bought a nice new overhead camera mount to make the videos look great. :)

That was a fantastic interview!!! I’ve been studying her performances and specifically trying to understand how she uses the MARF in her performances. One thing that is clear is that she is very particular to a certain workflow and I understand and completely respect that!

However... a question I have for you guys (interviewers and anyone that uses a 248) is about what functions might be missing from say, 2x 250e s? I’m can see how having sliders gives a visual description of shapes and that there is a lot of direct control and feedback of many of the functions. I can definitely see how someone with her perspective would not connect with the newer e designs but for those of us who are more malleable, I feel like 2x 250e would cover it all? No?

Thanks,
-Tom

Hi Tom. Thanks for the kind words and I'm very happy you enjoyed the podcast. Recreating Suzanne's patch was really fun. I don't think we did it justice, but close enough. :)

Suzanne talks about the 250e and her frustrations with it in Episode 60 of Podular Modcast. Here's a link: https://podularmodcast.fireside.fm/suzannecianipodmod

Thanks for listening Tom!

Yes, I think you could get similar function results with two 250e modules. You wouldn't end up saving any space with two 250e's but you do get dedicated 16 steps per module and "e" preset functionality compared to the MARF. You don't get "Reference" outputs (helpful but not vital), 2 minute functions per step, and what I think (and Suzanne) is a better workflow/play-ability with the MARF.

Both have their place and are great designs in their own right.
