Re: Never meet your heroes

Agree about Big Sky but that's more of a general objection to shimmer. Most often used like a skim of plaster hiding bad building work. Disagree about the TR707. Found its onboard limitations and simplicity combined with the huge number of separate outputs quite useful. Mind you, mine cost £30.00 .....

Upthread Kcearl said the Manther had a CV issue with the Akai Force so I don't see how this can be 'just an issue if plugging into a Behringer Neutron.' Anyone else looked into this?

The production reminds me of “Justify My Love” by Madonna.
I dig the Madonna tune, too. Produced by Lenny Kravitz, IIRC.
Some say stolen from Ingrid Chavez and Prince.

I've had a quick browse around other dealers and not found anyone else, yet, that beat EMIS. I thought EMIS closed at the end of 2019. Isn't Andy just selling remna...

Nefertiti is Jan Hammer's favourite album, IIRC. Many more obscure and irrelevant facts available on request.

This is a great live reinterpretation of Come Undone:

I'm tempted to just get the Volca Beats because it costs very little and does most of what I want.
Although everyone complains about its snare, the main problem I had with the Volca Beats is that the kick tuning won't go low enough.

Out of all the modules you’ve bought, which ones would you recommend most to someone with a Mother 32? Are there any that pair particularly well?
Unless you say what type of music you wish to do it's hard for anyone to offer appropriate advice.

Re: Doepfer a-140-2 vs AJH Minimod Dual Contour

Thanks, 303. As is the way of these things, I have just bought a A-140-2! However, I'm considering ordering the AJH as well - as you say, main envelopes must feel right to the hand (just like a keyboard) so I shall have to try both for myself.

Doepfer a-140-2 vs AJH Minimod Dual Contour

Any thoughts on the relative merits of these two? Primarily I want a dual EG to shape leadlines and basslines on a Mother-32. In other words, I'd be using it for hand playing keyboard parts rather than sequencing. On the one hand, the AJH reminds me of the EGs on my old Moog Prodigy, which I found v...

Re: Moog Mother 32/Subharmonican/DFAM, as the center pieces of a Eurorack?

I have 2 M32s and a DFAM and love that combo despite my frustrations-- it's a limitation I'm fine with for the instrument (similar drawbacks to my other synths/modular instruments). I have a similar set-up (three M-32s; sold the DFAM) and came to the same conclusion, albeit only after experimenting...

Of all the (generally uninspiring) demos released today, I think this is the first guy who's actually grasped how to play the Subharmonicon. Both on its own and in combination with the DFAM and M-32:

Re: Moog Mother 32/Subharmonican/DFAM, as the center pieces of a Eurorack?

The Mother-32 and DFAM are a good combination albeit semi-modular but if you know what you want musically you'd be better off with a custom Eurorack. That's kind of the point. However, most people need to experiment to find where they want to go so as long as you like the Moogs' retro sound, they're...
