This module is called "Tuesday"

Being a big fan of Arguru Saiko and his genius in defining a genre by algorithm, started the design thinking for procedural sequencing. A module that would create melodies in different moods and styles based on algorithms, because all music is math.

Quote:
ONE plays any mono WAV format file with a bit depth of 16 or 24 bits and a sample rate from 8 to 96 kHz. The native rates supported by ONE are 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz and these can be correctly quantized to the Western 12 tone scale. Other rates will use 48k as their time base and be
pitched up or down accordingly

Both of the Arturia devices talk CV and can act as a simple bridge between your computer and your rack.

I just finished catching up from page 50, and now have 23 tabs opens as module wishlist. And I haven't bought my case yet.

Apparently you're not the only one enjoying it. PerfectCircuit is out of stock, and they have four-packs as one of the options. Don't think I've ever seen a multipack of a module before that was geared toward the buyer and not resellers.

You can't turn bits on and off like you can on the Biscuit, but having sixteen different sample mangling algorithms makes up for it and then some. I know Doepfer is usually the king of utilities and basic modules, but this is one that I think they outdid the competition.

There's something about musicians.. they hit 40 and want to don a Hawaiian shirt and go play 'mustang sally' at a crappy bar. I still like industrial.. and punk.. and metal.
Same. Though I'm terrified of what my midlife crisis is going to be like. My dad bought a hang glider and then a plane for his midlife crisis. If that's what he did, then anything's possible. I might even start a bluegrass techno band.

I literally have a copy of the manual on my pc desktop since I've been ripping samples for the thing since I got it. It is picky about headers in the .wav files. I had to use audacity to clean out the crap Logic puts in the headers.

Though speaking of metalhead appeal, I'll never forget when at this prissy goth club in Austin, a mosh pit was started. ...to Front Line Assembly. Half the crowd was dancing, other half was moshing, dancers kept getting thrown in the pit, moshers get tossed in with the dancers. It was primal, and perfect in every way. Like some ritual to a god that only exists on the stage, and the dancefloor was his temple.

Is there not a basic DJ-style crossfader that works via CV to mix any two sources? I thought I had seen one somewhere.

Not exactly a fader but if you can deal with a knob there's this:

I'd prefer a wide and somewhat sticky fader with a gradual slope, but knobs are fine (I started out on Urei rotary mixers (1620)), especially if that's all there is.

Maybe I'll try to make one if it doesn't exist. Or at least hack something like this.

Hmmm.

Thanks for the suggestion, in any case.

Ugh. Crackerbox studios going up everywhere. They literally tore down a century-old church to put up square ugly condos in my old hood.

The metal scene in Jacksonville was never "death" while I lived there. It was a tragic mix of old mullets playing sh1tty 80's hair music like Poison and Dokken and taking it seriously, or young reds trying to remake Lynyrd Skynryd songs but with GRRRR and RRRRRUUUUHHH parts. Said with straight face, totally serious-"We're Crooked Cross, we moved here from Waycross, Georgia to Make it." I remember this band from Tampa called "Assuck". They were the real deal as far as that music went. My friends played with them in St. Pete one time. When all the frat guys started moshing me and my buddies went out to the van and got high. Not my thing indeed...

The rap metal scene blew up there soon before we left Jax. My buddy kicked Fred Durst out of his band because he wanted them to wear "outfits" and do rap metal instead of hardcore punk. After throwing him out they went on to form a really successful hardcore band that toured Europe, etc. Not long after Fred left that band the same guy who recorded my band's first album recorded the demo that got Limp Bizkit signed to Interscope or whatever. A little part of me died that day...

I used to struggle also with confusion and letdown when musical things I made didn't get the social acceptance I thought they would. So I've stopped having any expectations when I post something. It seems to help in the emotional downturns and feelings of whether it's worth it. In the end, I make what I make because I enjoy it and I find something interesting about it. If others don't, well, I can't compare that.

Thanks for that the both of you. I have always been "thin-skinned" when it comes to my music, but had tried to be better about that... but lately, it's been like tissue paper for some reason! Just questioning what I am doing, etc.

/end rant, whew!
Not me! I'm getting harder, angrier, more apocolyptic... and I just turned 53!
@slaughtrhaus the irony of Portland is, they're so desperate to be "original and hip" that they can't even decide on the city nickname! Unlike most cities that have a nickname or slogan, like where I grew up in San Diego "America's Finest City" or the last 20 years I spent in the "City of Angels" (Los Angeles obviously) Portland is known as "Rose City" and "Stumptown" and "Bridgetown" and "Rip City" and for a brief moment "Little Beirut" (because of all the anarchist protestors.)

Thanks. I can envisage a Doepfer beauty case expander for this for more mod/fx/clock duties, possibly another power lunch to similarly complement my MS-20, but those are discussions for 2018 :D :D :D

It’s actually a sight bigger than I expected, is that Power Lunch. But the form is gorgeous. Always wanted my own little suitcase synth  And yes, with Mom 32 it’s something like 3 oscs, 2 envs, 1 lfo, 1 varied modulation source, 3 filters, 4 vcas etc. I don’t expect it to replace my old Blofeld KB in wavetable terms but if it’s more immediate then all the better.

I would echo the sentiments about your vids. They really turned me on to the Mother 32, but also – you are saving us Antipodeans from using Ebay/webshops as a way of trying out rarer gear 

With respect to hipsterisation of urban areas... being ‘hip’ is just the human need to reach out to others, be recognised, but through the lens of conspicuous consumption. Identity is elusive and not any one characteristic, including your economic activity expresses it. We know this, so there is insecurity and baggage that comes with pursuing what is ‘hip.’ Humans are funny. “Hey let’s move somewhere with cafes, bars, live music, art events, interesting clothing and record shops...push up the rent, push out the makers, send in noise complaints...and so on! Yeah!”

To some small extent, the synthesiser is an avatar for my aspirations or ideals about who I am. But in reality it’s a box of junk that I have to make work to derive pleasure from, and apply discipline to extract any art from. That process is more demanding and rewarding than growing an ironic moustache and hoping some pretty girl recognises my taste in microbrews and looks past my insecurities...

what are you guys using for monitors for your modular. The system I'm planning is for home wiggle sessions, so won't be in a studio setup. Although will have a record path. Don't quite have genelec money, maybe adams.

I went from KRK 4" to JBL 5." First listen was Bowie: Scary Monsters. I actually cried, if that's a recommendation.

focal twins. they sound much better than adams without having to be genelec money.
Look for something 2nd hand, there's always a studio that's upgrading to the flashy new thing while the older model is still excellent.

I agree with the 2nd hand thing. I picked up a pair of used 8020c Gennies a year or so back, for the price of just one new one.

Focal CMS5s w/ JBL LSR series sub. Look at the Focal Alphas. A lotta bang for you buck, and just a bit more than the LSR's which are also fantastic at the lower cost spectrum.

I have the Focal Alpha 65's for my studio and they've always sounded good to my ears. I've had them about 3 years now. I went to my local store and tried Rokits (muddy bass) and the Yamaha HS series - too flat sounding which may be good for mixing but not nice to listen to. They didn't have the Focal Alphas in but I listened to the Focal Solos and CMS with classical, funk and rock music, are really well balanced and based my decision on this and have been very pleased. Well worth a listen if you have the chance to compare.

Having said this I am also looking to get a pair of Tannoy Reveal 402 for portable use as well as I tend to move skiffs/racks around rooms.

installed..!!!



there's a particular reason I've installed it in that location, this module looks to be very hands on so I have it right there close to my right hand so I can tweak and play in real time, ears should make the perfect gate and sound source in one for it..
