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.
