Mint. The decade round up was fun with discussions, but this is savagely good (that Lull track is an all time favourite).

Really broad scope & majestic with it, takes good ears threading so many different components together as coherently.

Great one! 
I record drone mixes too but never ever thought about processing with my gear! 

So... thanks for the idea too :music:

Yeah, the method kinda developed organically. Back in the 00's we were doing 6 deck improvised sets with some basic pedal and kaoss pad fx, but we always wanted to go further and the modular kits lets us completely deconstruct things, opening up the possibility to mix a much more diverse set of tunes - we send tracks out individually or together and then feed the processed sound back into the mixer.

We've found that an important factor is the live element - this set was more less completely improvised, but to do that you need at least 2 people, ideally someone on the same wavelength.
