You won't regret it. Absolute must for the price. Cycles plus the new Dreadbox synth would make a really nice portable setup.
Be good to yourself, and be good to others.

sure you're using the modular on that sc example? Sounds like music to me :P Really great job!
Thanks, I start out trying to make stuff that sounds more "modular" but I keep repatching until it sounds more melodic and structured. I'll try harder next time not to try harder :hihi:

I decided to pull the trigger on one of these. I was trying not to, but then they came back into stock at Perfect Circuit and we cancelled a fairly expensive summer vacation to avoid people.
I did try and pull that one but the money we'd put aside for our summer vacation has been spent on a coup and 6 chickens. I sold my Microwave XT and bought the Cycles, perhaps I can use the money left to buy a Typhon, or more chickens.

Chickens might actually be more entertaining than synthesizers IMO.

most definitely at times. they're hilarious to watch scratching around the yard, especially once you've had them for a bit and learn their pecking order, or know who's getting broody because they're running around screaming for no reason.

But do chickens have polyphonic aftertouch? If not, it's a dealbreaker for me.

why yes, in fact.. and the best thing about it is you can assign them to any duty: scrambled eggs, cakes, omelettes, hard boiled.. even feedback loops when the girls eat eggshells as calcium supplements!

We’ve put two hammocks up in the trees next to the run and spend most evenings up there watching them scratch about. One of them is broody at the moment, even though we’ve not got a cockerel, and we have to lift her out of the coop a couple of times a day and feed her. They are hilarious at times although don’t go in there with crocs, they thought my toes were worms and tried to peck them.

My cousin’s wife just got a couple of chicks a while ago and now has junior chickens. They are already starting to scratch out little places to nestle down as if making a nest. They bonded to her and are her buddies. My mentor at work has five acres in the sticks East of Milpitas (Bay Area). She thinks she has about a hundred chickens but is not sure of the exact number at any given time. She also has peacocks, ducks, and some other farm animals including a sheep that wandered up to her fence and she let in. I think she tried to find the owners but nobody recognizes it or wants it or something.

Made this about a month ago using the Cyclical MC Patch Pack

Model Cycles drums and fm clang hook.
A4 for string pad only.
Alesis Micro Limiter.
Nothing fancy, just a draft I may use live or develop into more some day.

I wonder if we'll see an update where we'll get access to some of the deeper FM stuff. Maybe through an editor. Since it's FM, it should be capable of most of the same sounds Digitone could do (depending on the algo). If we got access to internal FM envelopes, ratios, and the like, that would be pretty awesome.
These are great points. Waiting for firmware updates can be nerve-racking... I remember the Digitakt firmware rollercoaster ride. Has anyone written or discovered a model:cycles patch editor?
