  1. That first one is quality stuff for sure!
  2. Good atmosphere. Somewhat enjoyed that the breaks came in rather late. Might have worked being a minute shorter I feel, there's a sense of having "discovered" everything after 5 minutes. Could be personal though.
  3. Hi all, while playing around on the presets of my Zynthian I discovered a chord that instantly reminded me of that old c2 track. I kept that main element while adding stuff without listening back the original. What came out is something similar yet quite different. Please see this more of a fun excercise than anything that tries to compete with the original. Anyway, curious to hear what you think!
  4. This has been in my liked tracks on soundcloud for over a month and still get's played 🙂
  5. Nice to see at least two releases available digitally 🥰
  6. I found out about this label quite late. I don't mind the way of releasing from an artist- or label point-of-view at all. I do mind it however not because of them, but because of people's greediness, e.g. discogs sellers who buy all records off the shelve and then resell it for crazy amounts. I never get expensive second hand records, did however get a sealed copy of wh01 this week for 23 Euros (which is 30 inc. shipping) from a Discogs Seller. 30 Euro I would find too much for a record, but damn this was worth it. Am absolutely in love with the vinyl!! Still I know the same seller h
  7. Doesn't the 1010 Blackbox allow Polyphony of 3 notes? The new unofficial firmware of the dirt cheap Volca Sample can, albeit it looks like you have to adjust some settings. And the Maschine does that, but I guess that doesn't count 🙂
  8. I completely agree on the hipster value being somewhat ridiculous. Great music has been made on computers just as without any DAW. And yes I remember too the days that FL was seen as some kind of kids software that you can't make serious music with, which is obviously utter nonsense and is a good analogy to frowning on people who use laptops today. The way you describe your setup it sounds like little hassle and very close to using the r16 standalone. I guess what attracts me about using it that way is a stronger sense of being "closer to the music" when recording, re-recording and hearin
  9. The thing is that I only use hardware for making music. It's way more comfortable, reliable and immediate for me then to use a standalone recorder. Nothing beats having found the right groove for a jam to just hit the record button and go instead of booting the laptop, booting reaper, arming the tracks etc. Like most people today I live a life where my face is in front of a screen 80% of the time and just enjoy getting away from it for a while. If I'd do a lot of post-editing I'd stick to recording into DAW but that isn't the case. I've been DAWless since long before that word even
  10. xox you"re right, I meant to say absence of eqing knobs and midi is a shame. The digital eq on the zoom is very annoying to use being a submenu together with panning and fx. Very difficult to get an overview that way what is equalized in which way. Better to export and load the single tracks into a DAW but then one of the main points of the whole device for me is to not have to use a DAW.
  11. Sweet. I am looking to replace my zoom r16 with this. Love multi-tracking and while the zoom is great, absence of eq's and midi is a shame.
  12. Surprised nobody mentioned this here as a way to extend your 707? https://hkadesign.org.uk/tr707expansion.html I sold mine 2 years ago but starting to regret it. 707 was my first ever piece of hardware and I got and sold several drum machines since. None of them could beat the simplicity of the 707 with it's little onboard mixer. Reason I sold it is cause I just got bored of the sounds after using it for 9 years and it didn't sound "pumping" enough for me (something I can definitely say of my drumbrute impact). But interface-wise I think it's the best of all and that new extension c
  13. I like this one. Very nice atmosphere. Almost feels like there is too much variation on the breaks and melody, might have been enough to just let the loop exist more by itself.
