  1. Yes, I have a Piston Honda mk3. I like it because tonally it is completely different from the rest of my setup, its rich/harsh sound still pairs well with my outboard effects., but the balance between intention and usable results is sometimes a bit too much. I've considered swapping it out for the Hertz Donut, but I'm going to try with different custom wavetables before seriously considering that. I do have space in my overflow case for another complex osc. but I'm going to wait for the Xaoc Odessa first.
  2. I'm weighing up the Amphion15 vs PSI Audio A17m at the moment, would love a chance to hear them against each other, but doesn't look possible. In any case if you're looking at that price range should probably include the A17m as a possibility. Edit: Actually KMR in London look to have both on demo.
  3. I have one, like it a lot. Purchased originally to use with my eurorack, but more often than not I keep them separate. It does respond nicely to audio rate modulation though, it retains its musicality even with more complex modulation. The mixer in the MG is based on the old moog cp3 mixer. It has lots of character, but try backing down the osc levels to less than 12 o'clock for less clipping. The reverb tank is already notorious for coming loose in transportation, so if yours has already been knocked about you should check it. I've not had to but it should be straightforward to reseat it. Common issue so there will be online advice out there. There is a very lengthy gearslutz thread about the GM, mainly filled with the usual gearlsutz wank. However, Sean Costello of valhalla fame has contributed a lot with various sounds, often including patch notes. Try replicating some of these and then comparing. If you're way off, you know something is wrong.
  4. To clarify, I like the STO, but I'm referring to Euro Serge NTO as expensive but worth it(Random*Source in particular). The DPO isn't a double STO. DPO takes inspiration from Buchla, the STO Serge, but they will pair together well.
  5. I can't think of any oscillators I've had that sound bad, it comes down more to the features. Having said that the Serge NTO (and DUSG) sound great. The STO was obviously inspired by it. Expensive even as diy, but worth it.
  6. They (as in the light from them) would get red shifted to nothing over an arbitrarily(infinitely?) long time. You wouldn't actually be able to see anything pass over the event horizon.
  7. Sakamoto or Skrillex. That's the binary choice I'm giving you. There's a reason the american section in the book is the smallest. Even Iceland has a bigger section.
  8. I don't know I can't read Japanese. But if anyone should decide I think they should be Japanese.
  9. Ha, no I don't think so, and I can't remember any Legowelt releases being listed in the book, but I'll check tonight.
  10. There's also House, Techno and Ambient in the same series, but they only go up to 2013. Which is probably a good thing for those genres in any case. Whereas 2018 was probably the best year for IDM ever.
  11. Somebody has written a compendium of all IDM produced any where in the world since 1958. My copy arrived this weekend but it's in Japanese and I can't read it.
  12. Well, that's one way to kill the second hand market for these and ensure that people buy new.
  13. The Low album was a clear winner for me. Abul Mogard, just a bit disappointed it wasn't up to the standard of Circular Forms, but not much is. And not as disappointing as Tim Pecker and Autechre.
