Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: The Modular Synthesizer Thread

Really like this performance from Mr. Richard Devine.....a true master, blending all the chaos that modulars can conger up with a solid sense of musicality.

I just can't get beyond all the wires!!!  There is no interface left.   ;)

Such a good quote, Julio.
It is what I'd call the 'electrical', rather than just electronic, nature of modulars that make them interesting and different.

A new work of mine.



Nunc Stans : Elementa

Elementa captures the grandeur and mysterious elemental force of monumental landscapes
and desolate spaces. But these are not just static drones, they are full of motion, sonic events
and curious meanderings. They place you at a beginning. The beginning ... where forces clash,
join, and collapse. Where chasms open and elements intermingle, and where the matter of
life is precipitated in mysterious conjunctions.


It is available on disk at DataObscura and as a download on Bandcamp.
Bandcamp is the best for previewing full tracks :

Please do have a listen.
Comments always very welcome.

Enjoy !

Grab the pdf manual from the Korg site.

No, one sequence. But you can record knob movements into the sequence, which makes it special.

Korg Minilogue - this little synth has really grown on me for its sound and versatility.

I route it into my daw and feed its mono signal into a stereo generator to get some separation and widening.
Then add varying degrees of reverb depending what I'm after.

It's sounding really good !

I'm a fan of the AirFX unit. Use it a fair bit.
Surprised they dropped this concept ... it was so practical.
Alesis are like that.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Would you pay $1,000 for a CD?
« on: February 07, 2016, 07:29:56 PM »
Pushing up the expected price ?

Someone is asking for $1000,
maybe it is a good deal to get it at $500.

Crap like that.

Sound is more 'pretty' than gutsy. Generally bright. But is very flexible, easy to use and get useful new sounds from.
Nice layout. Lots of controls. Immediate.
The recordable sequencer is great. Knobs are solid. Little oscilloscope is very handy.
Keyboard small and toy-like, but playable.
Metal top, but plastic base. The thing is light weight.

53
One complaint I have about the Minilogue is that we have a two osc, 4 voice synth that is not stereo.
No panning. Mono main out.

54
Be an interesting comparison with my MS2000 analog emulation. Also 4 voices.
Love that synth.


55
I'm not a fanboy for analog (always did prefer FM and additive), but as far as analog goes I only have an original desktop Evolver (good mainly for sequencing) and could use a more knobbly and solidly analog sounding machine that has some variety. The four voices of the Minilogue are a definite selling point for me. I'm giving one a try tomorrow and hoping I will enjoy the sound and immediacy of the tweaking. Also hope the keyboard is not too cramped. I like to play, but have large hands.

56
I'll be buying one.

Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1

- been playing a bunch of Endless Melancholy that I picked up from bandcamp. Interesting material. Some are minimal subtle piano, some are Hecker-like drone crescendos.

- Fenton :: Pup  -- also bought from bandcamp. He is Shuttle358, but this time playing fairly minimal guitar. Good stuff.

Played around on that little Korg and it may look like a toy but it was really great sounding and very fast and fun to play, and at that price it will move a ton of units.

Good to hear your opinion on the Minilogue, Paul.
I'll certainly be picking one up when they hit the shelves.

Yep, it's like having a synth that is in a permanent state of change, always unfinished, always growing ....
I'd be broke and starving if I got into it.   ;D
