  1. lil' ol' Wisp is an honorable mention for a fantastic 'drum programmer' IMO. I feel like he might actually smack teh skinz in real life too, but I've never asked.
  2. I'm trying to do the opposite. Been offered a gig doing cannabis research/chem work for a biosciences company out of Vancouver... Fuck the states.
  3. WHY GOD, WHY IS HE AT COACHELLA AGAIN?! DIDN'T YOU PUNISH ME ENOUGH 10 YEARS AGO?! WHAAAAAYYYYY?!!! *regrettably starts booking time off and building feather headdress for inevitable immersion into all things Coachella, again*
  4. LSD shall set ye free :D
  5. I’m up in Greenwood area. Going to try and get out of obligations to meet. Shoot me a DM, yo
  6. Thanks for all the responses! I’ve sold off the studiolive (some dude came and got it for 875$ last night, nice guy, smoked some weed with him and talked synths) and will come to my decision on a mixer, patchbay and interface this weekend when I’m feelin’ spendy. After meddling with the 707 and live, I finally got it all to sync correctly (good god I’m bad at figuring these things out... YouTube videos and forums are a pain to navigate through and watch/read) I can make tracks all day every day in my current setup and love programming each sequencer, getting it all set up, hot swapping drum patterns on drum machines and twiddlin’. But fuck meh, engineering is a craft I really need to practice more. Been on the wait list for a cirklon for-goddamn-ever, but I can’t wait that long to start making some packaged tunes for my own sanity. I used to make tracks mostly on just a laptop with scattered gear samples, but after the untimely loss of my music making friend, I have had a block there where I freeze up when I need to make ideas entirely ITB from nothing or VST’s. Or I try and they just don’t feel as good as all the machines poppin’ off. BTW - any love in here for punch-in sequencers (don’t know what else to call em) like the one in the JX-3p and sh-101? Perfect hybrid sequencer would be something to that effect where you can punch it in as the sequence is playing in real time and then go back over and edit finer details. The EMX-1 actually has a really cool sequencer when coupled with the motion sequence feature. My pro-2 and minilouge have something to the effect, but not nearly the step-amounts I wish they had. Some baselines that get complicated I have to just sequence from midi in Live. Pretty sure there are a few that do that, but not with the flexibility of the cirklon AFAIK. Rambling now.. Not too much music makin’ talk on here as of late it feels like.
  7. Aright gents, so I have a bit of a particular set of questions and thoughts to get your ideas on. I've been toodling around with the same bits of gear for a long time in full sync. I've gotten my JX-3p (modded), Pro-2, RYTM, Minilogue, EMX-1, and TX81z all routed up to sync to the clock of a TR-707, which is fucking cool because they all have internal sequencers (aside from the TX81z AFAIK, that I plonk around on) I can run together like one spread-out cirklon in a way... I run them through outboard gear (some DBX compressors, a few of these ART pro-channel 2 strips a friend gave me from his work and into a digital mixer/interface --- I quite like recording through a desk, but my current one leaves some things to be desired with DAW stuffs. I have PreSonus 16.0.2 interface/mixer that I thought would be a dead-answer to my woes with recording multi-track into Live. Lo and behold, this sum-bitch doesn't pump out its individual channels with the EQ/Comp/Limiter and such onboard unless you're trying to record the master in one take in stereo. Which is cool if I'm recording in sound effects, simple drum patterns to sample or what have you. But when I jam live I like to record each track in. Sucks I have to just run them through the outboard gear and then into the Pre-amp -> Live. 1) Would this be easier with an analog desk that has outputs after the processing signal-path -> 16/16 i/o interface to Ableton and chopped from there? 2) Are there digital/analog firewire mixers that dump their actual output to each channel in a DAW (Live prefered, I have gotten used to it.) It's shit that this thing is fully digital and doesn't output anything besides being an over-glorified pre-amp/interface. The fuck is the point unless you're just mixing a live band to two-track? I mean I get it, most music is recorded live like that, but it just seems like a flaw 3) Is there a way to trigger Live to start recording when I hit start on the 707 and sync with so I can not have to sync things by ear? Sorry to be a total neanderthal with the recording tech, I'm just tired of everyone I know telling me to record and put out more after hearing all the live-meddlings. I've even had offers to go play paid gigs abroad but I can't get the tunes from my gear to a convenient DAW file for live-fuckery. I'd have to drag around everything currently. I can do what I need to do to make tracks with the current set-up. Don't get me wrong -- but, there has to be an easier way to streamline this work-flow. I love making tunes outside the box, but I can see what 'Phex was saying about how 'making music with tons of gear just complicates things' because half the time I give up on an idea due to me not being technically saavy or having constraints based on equipment. I just go back to the comfort of making tracks that I mess with in my living room, which is cool.. but TBH I need a hobby to get me head out of shit and this is the one that feels best. I have pretty much unlimited funds aside from dropping 5 figures or more on equipment. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks for reading all of that. TL:DR - I'm not good at recording engineering
  8. Word. Well it’s gonna be cool
  9. I like this Needs more crotch-rocket sounds ruining it tho like his brother does with his new music. And more facemask, rave fingers and vodka.
  10. what? I love the Alt Delay version. The slight detuning of the sustained notes mixing with what I can only imagine is a BBD giving its own lil' warble to it. Fookin lush m8. Nanou2, Avril and some of the other prepared piano pieces have a special place in my heart so I'm a lil biased. Having programmed a disklavier at the local university (in a weird room with the organs, pretty cool find) I appreciate the fuck out of how he was able to make it sound in some tracks. Getting the dynamics and velocity alone when programming from DAW midi makes it pretty hard to not have it sound like shit or like its being played by a robot on amphetamines if you get it too perfect.
  11. Sounds pretty cool. I feel like a lot of sound-design centric 'IDM' stuff I hear lately just kinda meanders on and lacks any emotion... this is straddling the line from what I've heard so far. Like it's all just run through a randomizer as to what effect to apply and left to run. Throw main synth through reverb, twiddle the LFO rate on a patch in the back, stutter a drum hit here or there and give it some bloopy repeating motif and call it a song. It's cool from a sound-design perspective, but does absolutely nothing for me on an emotional level and therefore doesn't get many repeat listens
