Re: Gear you own multiples of.

I've got two Nord MicroModulars and a G1 Keyboard!

I almost never turn the G1 Keys on but the MMs see quite a lot of use.

Other doubles:

2 x SQ1
2 x Faderfox LV1
2 x JamMan Express XT

Re: Book recommendations on synthesis techniques / sound design

The Nord Modular Book by JJ Clark is great: While the examples are illustrated using modules available in the Nord G1, they're a solid foundation on a range of approaches to synthesis.

Re: Max 8 and Mira Controlling Morphagene

Thanks for that, I've just picked up an ES-8 to try to bring my two worlds of Max and Modular together again (I previously had an ES3/6 Combo, but didn't use them too much). You've perhaps found this out by now, but tolerances in ES outputs generally mean that if you were to use a different output y...

Re: LFOs, Envelopes - why no attenuation included?

You may use your modulation sources differently to me, but I use mine as one-to-many (one source, many destinations) and so it suits me to be able to apply different amounts/inversions in different ways. I do often have a master level that you describe, but the main issue in Euro (for example) is th...

Simple but effective by Rodrigo Constanzo... skip to 4.30 for some nifty crab action!



Inspired by this I bought a Stokyo Kutter, a passive crossfader, to use with my modular, but haven't had a chance to try it out yet!

what chance is there of him making the code available to play with in the modular environment? Chance is likely no chance (especially since module you mention doesn't support SC), since he doesn't use any hardware other than his audio interface (not even any controllers!)
