That whole video is a huge rabbit hole into IDMness--it really drives home what Ae meant by having played with it for 2 years and still not getting to the bottom of it.

This is my gripe. Notice how that's likely a dainty skinny fella with spindly fingers and even he is all crowded on that knob bank. I really wish that some synth makers would nod to those of us with meaty paws and make an XL machine drum that has knobs about the size of a volume knob on those old solid state receivers from the 70's and 80's. I realize the MD would bloat to about 5 feet across but so what?

Hehe, I was about to post my LCC attempt. You can an awful demo of it here. I should redo this, film it and Youtube it really. And as said the punch isn't quite there, I expect the compressor settings aren't quite right - the MD Dynamix is a very odd compressor.

Personally, I love the Elektron gear. I've heard people say it all sounds very Autechre-y and that's all it does... but probably only because people push it that way. Fiddling around with the MD and Monomachine recently I've really got into weird danceable stuff. Proper beats, basslines and riffs, but the most screwed up sounds over the top. IMO they're the most innovative musical instrument manufacturer out there at the moment, their kit always amazes me how user-friendly it is etc. etc. That MD video is what pushed me into buying one.

Untilted's my favourite Ae album and Hemsby/Pontins is my fave live set... probably due predominantly to the gear used. Most of the LCC sounds are just the default settings of the EFM machines tweaked slightly. That snare is VERY easy to get on the MD. Sublimit also sounds fairly easy, I should have a proper go at "reverse engineering" some more Ae tracks at some point.

XXX - Just get a MIDI controller (Bitstream 3X perhaps? Ae use one hehe) - the Elektron gear has so much MIDI capability, every synthesis parameter can be controlled via CC. More via Sysex... though that is a little tricky.

here are some corrections:

blyz castl was done by rob with an mpc using some machinedrum samples amongst others.
melody on chenc 9 is from nord lead.
drums on perlence are mpc.
90101 is mostly mpc and nord lead.
that snare from the live set (lcc etc), thats machinedrum.
simm, well its not monomachine, a clue is in the name, also fermium is same machine mostly.
pro radii is samples, field recording, cut up and played on mpc, (akai filters).

I think he means the clue is in "Simm"

Simulation? Simulated DX?

EDIT: Nord Modular G2 probably.

well kind of except for the part where they deny the bass drums on perlence clearly being
from the machindrum, which any owner of a machinedrum can easily identify

I was actually buying most of those track recipes ( they sounded legit) until i saw that. or maybe if it was sean who posted that he just got lazy and/or forgot he used those on that track whistling.png
