Re: Pictures of your techno rig for inspiration?

I don't really make techno, but I'd say that if you're feeling the Rytm or the Alpha or some other drum machine along those lines, I'd try that route first for sure. You can always add more elements in Euro down the line and it'll still be cheaper in the long run.

Re: Trigger/Drum Sequencers

Steppy's pretty nice and simple if you're only looking for triggers/gates and don't need anything else.

I think the Metron's the real beast in the category - especially when you start adding Volteras in the mix.

Re: Ableton Live 11 Announced

I'm looking forward to it. Lots of little things I'm liking. Comping is a huge quality of life upgrade, honestly shouldn't have taken this long to put it in there. Glad to see it includes MIDI comping as well. Templates - another one that shouldn't have taken this long. I was kinda meh on the new ef...

Re: *** Vintage dealers taking the piss on used market ***

if you don’t already own it just look for newer alternatives, the market today is gigantic. if you want an analog 808 clone you can literally grip one almost brand new for less than $300 online. Yuuuup. Most of the pinnacle synths/samplers out there have inspired enough facsimiles that you could fi...

Re: When gear has lots of features you don't use do you want to downgrade?

Have definitely done this. Had a Digitakt, then added an Octatrack, felt like the DT was no longer needed and sold it only to miss its simplicity and pick up another one DT after the Octatrack was filtered out of the setup. A similar thing happened with the Rytm as well when I realized that the samp...

Been on the list since mid 2018, would still like to try one out but not enough to pay current resale prices. I think I might have moved on. Glad that they're getting back up and running, but I can't say I'll be on board if my name comes up. Wish I could rent/borrow one for a while to see if it work...

Re: What is a piece of gear that you will never part with?

I have gear that I really, really like, but the only thing that I know I'll never part with is my Sandberg TM4 bass. Really hope to find a 5-string Jazz that plays just as well some day.

These black editions are dope but I really like the colors of the originals.

Between these and yesterday's Elektron stuff, kinda feels like everyone's going back to black. Weirdly sad about that.

Re: NI Maschine+ standalone groovebox

Anyway, this is welcome since I expect this thing put a pressure on Elektron to release a proper Digitakt MK2 with serious features (stereo sampling, more memory, proper file management, more fx) This is pretty much what I want as well, a Digitakt with better sample editing and more memory/storage.
