Mine has been sitting in its carrybag since early October haha. I kinda feel bad about not using it enough, it's so lush.

I was going to offer to fix them if you sent me both, keep one as payment and send the other back, but then I looked at what they still sell for and that wouldn't be a good deal for you at all.

 

You should be able to get a $10 soldering iron, take the bottom panel off and jsut remelt the older that's holding the jacks on because there's about a %99.9 chance that's all it needs.  Then sell them both and make like $350.

That would have been awfully kind of you, but I'm also located somewhere in Europe so it would end up being massively expensive. But I'm gonna see if I can fix it. If I somehow create supernova by doing so I apologize on beforehand.

Thinking about buying an osmose and then reselling it a year later and making the profit.

I ordered parts to build 3 DIY Norns shields for raspberry pi. Parts finally arrived the other day and I made one today! My first SMD soldering project. I can't believe it actually works. I'm gonna build and sell the other two, and hopefully make back the money it cost to buy the parts. Free Norns!

Norns is baffling to me. What is a shield?

It's what was called a "daughterboard" in the 90s—a board that attaches to a raspberry pi to add functionality; in this case, a screen, encoders, buttons and audio interface. 

Norns is a hardware device that can run lua scripts and supercollider code. It's got USB host ports and network connectivity as well, so can be basically anything, as long as you can code it (or find something that someone else has made). I'm pretty keen to get started making my own sequencers etc for it.

God damn it, between getting paid for fall editing work and getting a bit of cash from a relative for Christmas and the money I had saved up for the last of the parts I needed for the huge 2020 synth build and Perfect Circuit having a sale, I just ordered a Kilpatrick Phenol.  Has this sort of beepy, almost clinical, 1970s sci-fi computer sound (without actually sounding like any specific vintage synth) in all of the demos that I find really inspiring and can't really get out of anything in my current setup. I'd had my eyes on it when it was first in the crowdfunding phase but I wasn't in a position to get one back then and it kind of fell off my radar for a while.  I really like the idea of having a single modular desktop box that can get into more deep/semi-generative modular sounding areas than  Even though it's a completely different instrument the form factor kind of gives me a VCS3/Synthi feel.  Plus I'm a sucker for anything with banana jacks.

 

We'll see.

Uhhh I should not have built that generative MIDI patch in Pure Data, getting strong vibes that I should now get Max and Live 10 with M4L so I can integrate all that stuff.

On the other hand, Live 10 is 400 euros and Max is 300 on top of that.

Can't afford a Wavestate so I'll be contrarian and say I hope the Wavestate pushes down the prices of old Wavestations so I can get a Wavestation A/D for like $150 since I missed my chance last time they were that cheap.

 

Wavestate.

I'm pretty sure if enough of us get a Wavestate and all play the same chord at the same time it will literally manifest the Alien Autopsy into physical existence in our own homes.

Studio desk has been assembled. Finally.

Guess I can talk about my experience with Output now. I bought the table back in October and on their website it said that it would arrive early November. November came and I heard nothing from them. Then I waited a little longer and still no word from them. I ended up contacting them because I was planning a small trip to Germany with my girlfriend and I wanted to be there when it arrived. They told me that they had received a surprising amount of orders which had caused some delays but they wanted to compensate me with a free plugin. I told them that my intention was NOT to get compensated but if they insisted I would love to receive their Substance plugin - and then... silence. Didn't hear a thing from them. I contacted them again and asked if they had received my email. No answer.
December came and still no answer and no update.

Then, a couple of of days before Christmas, it showed up completely unannounced. Hadn't received a tracking number or anything as I was supposed to. And still no plugin.

Oh well, I like the desk, but I had to remove the keyboard tray as my legs are too damn long and couldn't fit under the desk.

Interesting, I was thinking of getting the Output sidecar or whatever it's called, until I read about the problems before christmas.  Found a different solution in the meantime.

Is this guy basically every modern idm type producer?

Elektrons and modular setup. He doesn't even make a track, just jams with pre recorded sounds and presets and then goes past his 10 minutes.

don't care, sounds great, I love Barker's stuff

edit: I don't hear anything pre-recorded in there? He's definitely building it up on the spot, I don't think it makes sense to completely design every sound from scratch if you've only got 10 minutes

Isn't he using his live "template" ? Builidng something from scratch using his usual sound-palette. Doesn't really matter to me anyway, I'm a huge fan of his stuff and that ATC is pretty amazing.

Oh and just for the record I'm seriously considering saving for a little Serge Modular system. I have no clue when I'll be able to buy one but I think that's the right (modular) synth for me.

Plus he's a bloody nice guy and a fucking huge autechre fan so gets a pass in my book.
