  1. Bought instantly, obviously. Can't wait to blast it on my monitors, Synalegg's hands down one of my very favorite electronic musician around.
  2. Have you tried writing directly to Michael ? Rather than doing it for you, I'm sure he'd give you insight to port it yourself.
  3. VCV Rack can be great if you select a handful of modules. I bought Rack 2 for the MI and Instruo modules alone. Otherwise it's easy to be lost / overwhelmed by the countless options. WRT Bazille, which is certainly my most used synth, I love the Gearporn UI.
  4. Zebralette 3 might happen this summer though. Everything Urs has shared so far (like, that new 1000+ partials "sine based" render engine) about Z3 tech looks stellar.
  5. I beta test for various developers so I might be super biased. I've also bought way too many. Are we discussing soft synths or FX ? re:Vital: it slays Serum (which sounds so freaking bad, always metallic whatever you do with it). Hive 2's still my fav wavetable based synth around. I agree with the everything u-he statement, their synths are heads and shoulders above the competition IMO, in terms of sonics, ergonomics and ethics. Can't wait for Zebra 3.
  6. While I 100% agree with the post above, I still prefer the EPs to the LP.
  7. Watched The shrink next door. Will Ferrel definitely knows how to act, impressively subtle. Not an easy watch though, fascinating story but equally sad and cringey.
  8. Lovely mixer you’re selling, somehow similar to the small Studer / Revox I’ve always drooled for. Quality ADC + a selection of great outboard seems the wisest choice indeed. I’m an ITB guy, but I’d happily make room for a Synthi hehe. The raw tone is sublime.
  9. Re: Zebra 3 (not my pic, found it on KVR)

  11. U-he will show glimpses of Zebra 3 tech at Superbooth. Given most recent KVR posts by Urs mentioning what will be in the final version, I can't wait. Exciting times really. "Anyhow, there is so much stuff. For instance, I spent the past week writing an alternative rendering module for Z3 oscillators which uses 1000+ sine oscillators instead of wavetables. I got it down to about half the CPU of a plug-in with a similar method which I like a lot. This method allows for some elaborate and dynamic drums and mallets, all without any physical model at all." "I'm actually prepared to show a glimpse at the curve based editor for 3rd gen Z3 oscillators during Superbooth. I am slightly afraid that it'll keep me from work for a few weeks though, because people will have questions (and some will be afraid it's over their head). It is a similarly complex piece of software engineering as our preset browser or Bazille's synthesis core, if not the most complex one of all. It currently offers just over 100 tools and settings for what I'd call "Waveform CAD" (rather than "WaveShop", because it isn't sample/pixel based). Sample import is not yet implemented because another developer is reworking drag'n'drop and copy/paste on another branch. This is shaping up nicely though, and one of my next projects is about dropping .wav files on the curve editor, where - if all goes well - waveforms will be vectorised and ready for further treatments. In addition there are something in the vicinity of 15 novel and reworked OscFX as of now. These also have individual options so one can get a lot more out of them than what Z2 used to offer, and I feel our work has just begun here. Exciting times ahead! (I really have to think about unveiling this though... there'll be endless threads...)"

  12. Bandcamp Friday bump ! It's such a gorgeous collection of tunes, treat yourself with a digital / physical copy !
  13. Watching Foundation, 2 episodes left. While not mind-bending, it's fantastically well executed / acted / directed etc. I can't even imagine the budget needed, the series look like something many huge blockbuster movies could be jealous of. Never thought "television" could look that expensive.
  14. s01 was horrendous, s02 was indeed actually pretty good !
  15. Just got the prints from the labs, they look super sharp. It's a stunning release, don't sleep on it !
  16. It’s now out, and I’m convinced many fellow WATMMers will love that one. I sure do !
  17. No deep-learning in Bill’s stuff. Super clever algorithms at work though, and « curated » with fantastic taste. I love FieldsOS but I have a soft spot for Fluidity.
  18. Which MBP did you go for ? I plan to get a 14" M1 Max (the less expensive 14") and hope it'll be able to run sessions with L11, soon M4L and 5 to 10 instances of softsynths like Bazille, Hive, soon (hopefully) Zebra 3 at 96k... with processing. Mostly monophonic instances, otherwise with low polyphony and alway large buffer. Basically I cross-finger it'll be able to run the sessions my i9 9900k desktop can.
  19. OUT NOW via http://threeop.bandcamp.com, in high-res digital files and limited USB archives Preview : ENG Othello Aubern are French electronic musicians Clovis Lemée and Thomas Pujols. You might already know their sensational respective solo work as Horla and Nebulo : OA is an anagram of both their monikers by the way. The title of the album was generated using the same process, though the original words remain unknown. The 8 tracker was made swapping MIDI and audio files between France and Taïwan over the course of two month-long sessions, using an array of software and hardware bits. [/facts]. Pace Serpente came as a total surprise for us : we first contacted Thomas to release with us, who quickly sent us half of the current LP. Elliott and I were instantly floored by what we heard : sublime sharpness and immediate intricacies, a brilliantly paradox-bending body of work. Months passed, and we finally received the mixdowns of the eight pieces. To put it simply, the whole was even better : every second of Pace Serpente makes the rest more impactful and memorable. I'm not exactly sure of the original intent of the artists, so please keep in mind that what I'm typing is highly subjective here : Pace Serpente feels like the finest, most noble and crucial pop music of the year 4000. Don't get me wrong, the timbres are meticulously refined and overall sound-design and production are lazer-precise : masterful work in that regard. The melodies and grooves make this LP unique : you'll compulsively whistle the countless goosebumps inducing killer hooks Pace Serpente offers. It's a concise album that begs to be listened to on repeat : it'll reveal endless finesse every time you dive in. Transcendent, captivating, perfect record. n. FR Clovis Lemée et Thomas Pujols sont Othello Aubern. Vous connaissez déjà certainement leurs projets respectifs, Horla et Nebulo : OA est d'ailleurs un anagramme de la somme des deux pseudonymes. Le titre de l'album a été généré selon le même procédé, mais le point de départ nous demeure inconnu. Les 8 morceaux dont il est ici question ont été faits en échangeant des fichiers MIDI et audio entre la France et Taïwan sur deux sessions d'un mois chacune, en utilisant divers logiciels et instruments hardware. Voilà pour le factuel. Pace Serpente a été une véritable surprise pour nous : après avoir contacté Thomas pour travailler avec nous, il nous a vite envoyé la moitié du futur LP. Elliott et moi avons été immédiatement abasourdi par ce que nous découvrions : sublime précision et nuances en cascade, un ensemble de morceaux qui défiait les paradoxes de façon brillante. Des mois ont passé, jusqu'à réception de toutes les pistes. Pour le dire simplement, l'ensemble était encore meilleur : chaque seconde de Pace Serpente rend le reste de l'album encore plus impactant et mémorable. Je ne sais pas exactement quelles était ici l'intention des artistes, donc gardez en tête que ce que j'écris est super subjectif : Pace Serpente sonne à nos oreilles comme la plus fantastique, raffinée, noble et cruciale pop music de l'an 4000. Ne vous méprenez pas, les timbres sont méticuleusement travaillés et l'ensemble du sound-design et de la production sont d'une précision chirurgicale : une exécution pleine de maitrise. Ce sont néanmoins les mélodies et les grooves qui rendent cet album unique : vous sifflerez compulsivement les innombrables, redoutables mélodies "chair de poule" dont regorge Pace Serpente. C'est un album concis qui ne demande qu'à être écouté en boucle : il ne cessera de révéler toute sa finesse. Transcendant, captivant, parfait. n. Written, produced and mixed by Clovis Lemée and Thomas Pujols, 2021 / 2022, between Taiwan and France Mastering by Nil Hartman Artwork by Clovis Lemée
  20. Devs ? Fantastic mini-series IMO. Fargo’s great btw.
