  1. Yeah someone in the DFAM thread on gearslutz put a link up to someone selling Moog-like knobs that you could fit onto the DFAM. Makes such a difference imo because as you say, the tiny ones that are there for pitch and velocity were a right ballache to deal with. And cheers for the kind words guys!
  2. Yeah I built some of my previous one, but when I moved to Germany I had to get rid of it. It's definitely tempting to maybe design something myself tailored to what I need, but I think this..... ...might be the best option.
  3. I moved into my new flat almost 18 months ago and I've been so slack sorting things out but it's pretty much there now. A month or so ago I got some acoustic panels free from work. Bought some thin felt and wrapped them cause they looked like shit. Also bought a diffuser the other day. I'm never gonna get it perfect because a) I live here b) the room is an openplay kitchen/living room and c) I effectively have two listening spots - where I DJ and where I compose. So I'm just looking to make sure it sounds fairly even across the board. Final mixing I do in the studio at work. But in general it's sounding pretty sweet - I just have a problem with slapback from the two blank walls at the kitchen end (behind where I took the pics basically). At some point I might buy a couple more diffusers for the kitchen, but right now I need to get a couple more pictures framed and up on the wall. \
  4. Where do you lot buy your studio furniture from? I need a new desk that has a keyboard (as in for typing) tray. I use hardware but not being able to edit audio without having to move shit is driving me up the fucking wall. Thinking maybe just a normal computer desk.... I have separate speaker stands and I don't really need extra levels on the top segment either.
  5. I'm always wary of frequency masking and having too many instruments in a similar range. Just cause it sounds great soloed doesn't mean shit. Also, through spending years of editing dialogue with the spectral analyser in RX I've got ok at being able to roughly estimate the frequency of difficult/annoying sounds in order to EQ out some shit and get a bit more clarity. Having a visual back up like FabFilter EQ is great but being able to recognise frequencies just helps with composition and stop me layering up too much shite and losing any clarity. I still suck at it mind you.
  6. I've only seen a few videos of the Model:Cycles but what I have seen I really enjoyed. Same with the Model:Samples. Fact is, not everyone wants to spend half their time menu diving on a system that needs you to chuck anywhere upto €1500 at it and that can takes years to master. Plus they look like good stepping stones if you're just starting too. I didn't enjoy my A4 anywhere near as much until I got my hands on the Digitakt and became a little less overwhelmed with the whole thing.
  7. Is it possible to use a launchpad or something and have that looking at the next page?
  8. ooooh that's not a bad shout at all, hadn't considered that. Will look into it. Cheers.
  9. I've just managed to get a load of absorbers from work that we're not using anymore. Nice and light and can tape to the walls easily but I wanna cover them with something so they look a bit nicer. Was thinking just like a 1mm felt or something? Is there something I should be looking out for or is there something better? It is an aesthetic thing but I also don't wanna use something that's just gonna fuck with the effect. I do however have a fucking shocking lack of knowledge when it comes to acoustics. Any suggestions?
  10. am i being a moron or is this not available anymore? anyone got a copy?
  11. is this a negative or positive comment? I have a BSP and I really like it but sometimes the lack of keyboard and sequencing options is annoying. Ultimately I just don't have enough external synths that require sequencing but if I did I'd be all over this for €400.
  12. Plus he's a bloody nice guy and a fucking huge autechre fan so gets a pass in my book.
  13. I have 8ins and I'll record as many as I'm using separately. Either I'm gonna accidentally make a mistake that I can quickly copy/paste out on a track at a later date, but mainly I compose at home (which sounds like shit) and then mix later in the studio at work, so there's no fucking way I'm committing that down to stereo in a room that I know I can't trust. I also have some gear that I like to later run through external gear and I want to be able to really push that without having to deal with elements in the signal that I don't want to touch. I'm all for committing things down from a performance point of view, but fuck not being able to dig into bits from a mix point of view. But I very much like to separate each process; Composition/recording. Mix. Master.
  14. Actually I fucked that up, the tails are only there on bypass kills, but even so, pretty powerful.
