Best so far (from my wife, after a beer):

"Sounds like you had a rave going on in there."

Worst so far (from my son, as a toddler)

"Daddy, I didn't know where you were, but I heard a horrible noise and I followed it and I FOUND YOU!"

One day I was making really strange noise and my gf ask me what I was doing. I said: "Oh, I'm trying to communicate with aliens so they could come here and get me".

Now when I make weird sounds my gf come up to me wispering: "I think they're coming..." And then we laugh

It makes more sens in french:

-Qu'est-ce que c'est?
-Oh c'est des communications extraterrestre!

my girlfriend often walks in during a jam and will join in on something, usually the juno or the sh101, ill tell her to twist a cutoff somewhere... she does like the pressure points and choices modules.

She will do a little robot dance thing sometimes. Sometimes when she really likes something, she'll ask how I'm doing it (which she immediately regrets, I'm sure).

We don't live together though. Well, we used to, but living apart just works so much better for us. Until I get that 8,000 sq ft beach house anyways.

Mine says she gets scared looking at it and that it makes her uncomfortable (insert joke here).

When i'm up all night working out a tune that has me really excited and i play it back for her in the morning she says "thats nice" in about the most pleasant (uninterested) tone she can muster.

I tried to get my daughter interested in my modular, but she was just like "How can you like listening to this?" :despair: But she thinks Katy Perry is amazing, so I'll take that with a grain of salt.

My partner often sticks her head in the door and says "That sounds great baby!" :party: She also reassures me in my moments of doubt, telling me that spending money on modular gear is worth it because it makes me happy.

I was listening to Tomita on the car system and the wife said "only you likes that kind of music".

My wife actually even is getting the current piece I'm working on (which is a dark ambient, atonal, but "Halloween music" type piece).

She likes Hearts of Space type stuff so she gets what I'm doing, most of the time. I don't think I'd get along with someone who just listens to Katy Perry type pop.

She didn't like the banjo.

As for the synth, she says she likes the headphones.

It always surprises me when she says, "I like that!" More often it's something like, "Horror movie soundtrack again?"

She also does a funny vocal imitation of the sound of a filter closing. :lol:

Mine has had an enjoyable time reading this thread over my shoulder since it was started. She usually complains that i don't use enough drums :doh: , but that's pretty mild compared to what some of these ladies and gentlepartners of ours are saying.
