  1. It's not 3 new things, they're just giving away 3 machines (not sure if it'll be the new one though) at the launch.
  2. It's got sequencers and an arpeggiator. Not quite a TR/Elektron style sequencer, but you can definitely make auto-playing patterns with it. That said, it's basically temporary pattern storage rather than something where you can store hundreds of patterns.
  3. I'm starting to miss having a fkn OP-1, argh. I sold it two years ago for around half the price of what they are now ?
  4. Yeah I need to do that as well. I've been going through old recordings and cleaning them up a bit though, which is giving me a reason to release that stuff. It's good to hear old things from a different perspective.
  5. I'm so glad those videos are being shared like crazy. cTrix is really good at this stuff. Plus, my hands are in the first video ?
  6. Yeah that's why I'm holding off for a while. I have a feeling that with a synth that deep, even with its extended interface compared to its predecessor, I'd probably end up relying on presets and/or my own patches wouldn't be very complex.
  7. fucking hell "lol it's only $3 in components anyone could make it" isn't the kind of argument I thought I'd see here
  8. I think my modular experiments are coming to an end. I decided at some point last year that I should either keep expanding in order to be able to make full tracks in a modular environment, or downsize to maintain a concise, single voice and/or effects/filter rack. I decided on the second option. It's about half the size of what it was at its peak and now I'm considering downsizing even more, maybe even to just my Intellijel palette case. Dealing with MIDI to CV has been the bane of my existence the whole time as well, and I'm getting a bit sick of it tbh. I think I'm just generally more inspired by the potential to exploit fixed architecture synths. (I still want the Wavestate, but I've cooled off a little)
  9. As ridiculous as Robin's requests were, at the end of the day it was a bit of a dick move of Behringer to just go ahead with an exact clone of the Devilfish mod. I'm kinda done with this Behringer clone stuff now. I'm not against anyone buying them, but I personally won't be buying any, even after having my eye on the Neutron and/or Wasp for a little while.
  10. What a surprise, now they're ripping off the Devilfish mod.. http://www.firstpr.com.au/rwi/dfish/behringer-unauthorised/
  11. Well, it's not an exact copy of the 909 PCB. I can't remember where I saw it, but one of the Behringer clones is a direct copy of another PCB that is still on the market.
  12. I guess the main reason is that Roland didn't make an analog and/or full size reissue. Given that Behringer ripped off another circuit design for the 303 clone (I think?) I wouldn't be surprised if they ripped off the Nava circuit.
  13. I've made some of my (imo) best stuff using cheap (or free) gear/software. I buy synths because they're fun to mess around with.
  14. Unsolicited advice: don't buy a new one. Big brand guitars (ie. Gibson and Fender) are overpriced for what they are, and have been for decades. For the price, you'd probably get more out of a nice condition (or even something a bit worn with character) second hand Gibson from the 90s or earlier, than whatever they're pumping out these days. Back to your original question though: I've played a few Epiphones and they're great. I have a $150 super entry level "LP Special" that I use as my doom metal guitar, it sounds awesome and is nice to play.
  15. Is it really that hard to design basic generic modules rather than ripping off Roland ones though? I thought the remakes were kinda cute at first but it's starting to get ridiculous.
  16. If only the white one also had white sharp keys. That said though, it's still fkn awesome and I want one.
  17. Very true. I have the SY22 for that though ? I'm really keen on this because it sounds legitimately lush and very much in line with what I've been getting into lately. I'll give it a few months of cooling off time before I go selling something and potentially regretting it though, haha.
  18. Yeah honestly thats a main reason why I want it. That late-80s to mid-90s rompler sound really does it for me, and it looks much easier to edit than the original synths from around that time. Does the Argon8 contain full length samples or just single cycle waves?
  19. don't care, sounds great, I love Barker's stuff edit: I don't hear anything pre-recorded in there? He's definitely building it up on the spot, I don't think it makes sense to completely design every sound from scratch if you've only got 10 minutes
  20. I never really had any horror stories from online dating. Everyone I met was either mostly pleasant/attractive or just a little dull. The real horror is how many women go to the effort of putting "only contact me if you're taller than me" in their profiles. That's some real bullshit right there. What if I wrote "only message me if you have comically huge breasts"? I still maintain my stance that women can't call themselves feminists if they're turned off by a shorter person. Having said that though, I've dismissed women on dating apps based on their music taste, so that may be similar.. but at least that's a personality thing.
