Actually I was aware of none of this so thank you a ton.
I've only had the unit (RND Portico II
MBP) for a couple of weeks and am still not fully use to it. I did find however that even with the limiter seemingly disengaged it may perhaps still be limiting "overs", so there may be some truth to his statement.
I didn't feel it was lacking in dynamics, but perhaps I'm just strange.
Technically it contains a fair amount of Moog, 3 of them (of different makes) but the "theme" was to combine it with "cold" digital sounds from Surge and an Emax and see what the unification of the lot would say to the OP of that former thread.
Though he lamented that it was in song form and that he would have preferred a few notes of a single patch. I just can't subjectively have a use for patches without songs, so really I was the foolish one.
I at first rationalized to myself that spending 5 hours on a relatively complete song was in fact very foolish, but I shouldn't kid myself, I'd be making music anyway, he just provided some marked goals and obviously the unique twist of adding patches themed around his username.
Once again though Controlvoltage, thank you a ton, I had no idea about any of that concerning soundcloud.
