  1. This thread has been a real rollercoaster of emotions recently. Personal highlight was "the dog eat my homework/stopped me seeing one of the routes of progression"
  2. @chris on the moon this looks like a pretty decent pdf guide to the various parameters and settings, might help a bit: http://bit.ly/1URcSBx
  3. I love FM, I think if forced I would say it's my favourite type of synthesis, but this is probably the best bet to start with. It's enormously complex and the slightest change can make a patch sound totally different. Once you've done that for a bit, then move onto emulating those patches and see where that gets you. Or just download a million DX7 patches and embrace the 80s cheese. The FM is the best Volca IMO.
  4. Hopefully they will be unchained from their desks and allowed to go home for a day tomorrow.
  5. Yeah that looks amazing. Trying not to think about it too much because I have neither space nor cash for one. My latest acquisition is one of these: Sounds great, and I absolutely love the design. The gold on black looks fantastic IRL. Instruo vibes but hippy instead of steampunk.
  6. Been thinking about this kinda on and off since you posted it @CS2x. Speaking personally, I don't ever expect any real level of success from what I do, which is make music in a niche of a niche, but equally it's hard not to think every time I put something out "maybe this is the track that people will notice" and then be a touch dejected when it barely registers. I think the key thing is to focus on why you're doing it, and for me it's 99% the enjoyment of creation and the zen state of focusing purely on that rather than almost everything else in this fucking garbage f
  7. The only thing stopping me buying a bunch of replacement panels for the stuff in the bottom case and going 100% black panel is that there is none for the Twin Waves that I can find.
  8. Yeah I've been too scared to try it so far too, although I received a Feedback Modules Squeeze kit in the post recently, so I'm going to give it a go soon. I think I enjoy DIY just as much as actually playing with my rack tbh. The Performer is great, does the Elektron conditional stuff, can do some nice generative things and the four CV ins allow some neat modulation of various parameters. I've not really dug too deep into the curve tracks yet, but they seem like a cool way to do complex LFO/envelope stuff. Oh and it's acting as a midi to CV bridge for my MPC. All in all, very happ
  9. I wish I could say yes, but I'm not quite up to that yet, bought it from a friend who does the "build three, keep one" thing. I have DIYd a bunch of stuff, all through-hole so far though. The Zlob Diode Chaos was my most recent build.
  10. High Rise gets a pass from me just for bringing this into the world, Portishead making an ABBA song dark as fuck: https://youtu.be/WVe-9VWIcCo
  11. So I've managed to go from that to this. When people call it Eurocrack they aren't joking...
  12. I was very close to backing that but resisted in the end. I hope it's good when it arrives and it's just been covid stress/general 2020-ness to blame for the lack of updates etc.
  13. It was genuinely one of the best co-op gaming experiences I've ever had, playing through this last Christmas with my wife.
