I really don't like mine lol. I think it sounds like garbage. The only use I've found for it is as an auxiliary LFO/dumb sequencer for my Microbrute. It does have a lot of bass, so there's that!

I think the pitch needs to be controlled by CV and the output needs to be filtered, then it can be useful (for me). Right now it is a edgy noise box.

Computer, yes. Ableton Live (still on v. 9)

Wow ... impressive.

 

Also: never heard of an Akai VX 600 before ... looks like a *very* cool bit of kit.

I keep finding that I'm taking more and more out of my studio and gotten it down to about 4 pieces of gear altogether, laptop included. It feels really dependent on environment, space and necessity. I put some spider plants around my desk and have a laptop-holding arm clamp hold the laptop in the air while using only a korg MS-20, SQ-1, Microverb, MIDI interface all three and a behringer mixer. I'm finding myself more creative the less tactile the experience is for me and fewer user interface things there are. Took me a few years but hitting a bunch of drum pads and manually recording knob changes aint my thing.

I read an interview with i think it was juan atkins and he started out out with a korg ms 10 and a cassette recorder and he played with it all summer.

Thats all you need + creativity

Pretty sure there isn't a single piece of gear in existence that Aphex *hasn't* used by now :-)

How’s the rytm?


Fun. Could be used standalone quite easily if you load some soundscape samples into it. Latest firmware (which I haven't installed yet) even comes with a mini synth.

The sound is a bit boxy and in your face. Might be me, dunno. Hi-hats (often complained about) are fine. I *really* like the snares.

For what the MK1 is going for second hand it's a steal.

^agreed with the Rytm comments (not that my opinion was solicited lol) snares are top notch, the synth stuff they just added is pretty fucking crazy tbh. Mk1s are definitely a steal right now...dunno how many they made but honestly this is THE drum machine of the era imo. Not in its use necessarily (many are just using it in very basic ways and half the time using it just like a sample player ffs), but just in quality and ability and range. Anyway, sorry. Love the Rytm.

 

 

^looks like a really nice setup. What are you using for recording? I'd assume computer but you never know...

 

Computer, yes. Ableton Live (still on v. 9)

Same here, looking at other options though, just curious what everyone else is using. Pretty sure I'm gonna swap over to a Zoom LiveTrak soon. Ableton is plenty reliable though.

The Digitone has an amazing sequencer. You should give it a shot. I've performed a couple live sets just using that one synth.

It used to be my primary mobile-music listening machine before the days of iPods and then smart phones. 

 

Now it's just for field recordings and collecting dust.

If it helps ease your mind, all my modules are home made as well. 

 

It saves a ton of money to just build them yourself.

 

I'll finish the case eventually, but the sounds are more important than how it looks, gnomesayan?
