I think you’re thinking the word “classical” means western. It doesn’t.
I do not. I do think that the word comes with a lot of Western presumptions which causes other musics to be judged on the values of Western music rather than their own, as in the question posed by the OP.

Re: Indian Classical Music

Those who know the music, do you feel it suffers from variety and progression vs. European classical? What's the point of comparing I guess. Since I don't seem to be getting through here, I'll answer your questions directly. No, I don't think it suffers from (a lack of?) variety and progression vs ...

Re: Indian Classical Music

LOL GrantB what a load of nonsense. Hindustani classic music is a rich and very formalized tradition. I honestly have no idea what you are railing about here. Of course it's rich and formalized, but the idea that it's "classical" is a European concept. I recently read that Yourba bata music is the ...

Re: Indian Classical Music

What's the point of comparing I guess. This cuts right to the heart of the matter. The whole idea of <insert country> classical music is a Eurocentric colonialist construct which is mapped on to other cultures in an often clumsy way. Carnatic and Hindustani music were already their own things, and ...

Re: Serge 4 panels only

I'm going to go with the consensus here and add that I would build the VC Slew on the COA 1 panel with a SSG board and drill a couple more holes for full SSG functionality. Gotta have SSG, especially in a 4 panel system.

Re: Producing dub, beginner question

I'm not a dub producer, but my personal opinion is that the further down the signal chain you are looking to "blend it back into the mix" the more work you'll have to do. I'm interested in hearing the outcome (and the original track)! It's been a while since I had to the chance to produce anything ...

Re: Dave Smith hints at Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4/Prophet 10

The high frequency thing has been sorted out but the lingering (and unfixable) white elephant is that the oscillator mixer levels are horrendously overdriven at 10, and still create weird/annoying sidebands at 5. DSI considers this normal, but no vintage pro-5 ever sounded like this. :O Missed that...

The Serge patching mindset can be hard to escape once you've had a taste. :zen:
I wouldn't mod your system. You have the best of all worlds over there already, just need some LPGs in your Serge. And maybe some CL. :zombie:

Re: How do I know when I need grounding?

Passing audio signals to and from the Coco via the 1/8" connectors will have the ground connected automatically.

For connecting the Coco to the eurorack or Moog via a banana cable, go through the format converter box and connect the ground of the format converter to the Coco ground jack.

Am I the only one who isn't excited for this? I'm not either because Big Sky does more of what I want. This thing looks good in that it's probably the best interface for a shimmer pedal we've seen yet. That's so important since the parameters have to be dialed in just right for a good shimmer sound...

Unfortunately the the mounting holes on the panel don’t quite align with the predrilled holes of the Bud AC-423. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
Nice panel!
Sometimes you can still force a self tapping screw in there when the hole's a little off.
