Re: Norand Mono

construction is pretty good, though not a tank-- plastic case. sturdy buttons. metal knobs, yes metal, and they feel great, definitely not wobbly. some more thoughts now that i've dragged it into the studio and gone through the whole manual-- i really enjoy the workflow on this synth. successful no-...

Re: Recommend Hardware Compressor

I’m curious if the Elektron Analog Heat can take line levels without a direct box sort of thing? Like could I take straight from my euro output module into it? no, absolutely not. i have to turn down line level signals a LOT to not clip the inputs of the AH, and modular signals are significantly ho...

Re: Recommend Hardware Compressor

i think the old Overstayer "FET" comp was exactly made for what the OP wants. i have the overstayer "VCA" from that past line btw. What i saw is their todays product line entirely different now. ........and way more expensive. tho the OS FET is juicy af on drums, it is neither punchy nor does it ad...

Re: Skinny Puppy WHY?

And although Too Dark Park is probably my #1, I totally don't get why some people slag on The Process so hard. The whole "just skip over The Process" - I could not disagree more. Not only is a great album, but the same thing that might make it "skippable" to some is the same that might make it the ...

Re: Norand Mono

Just got mine a few hours ago. So far, this thing is amazing. First off, it's not a 303. Soundwise, more like a 101 with jetpacks and steroids. The X-Mod & X-Env is a gold mine of sounds. You think you want a sound and start programming and then it takes you to 10 other places. There will be compla...

Re: RME Fireface UCX on Apple M1 latency

Wow, this is exciting stuff. Glad to hear the pendulum swung in our direction for once.

Re: First hardware compressor recs

depends on budget and application as mentioned above. personally i find a hardware EQ much more useful then a hardware compressor, esp. for electronic music. if the application is to process already recorded mixes, you may want to think about your conversion loop before you dip into expensive hardwa...

Re: transitioning to Apple silicon

Seems like a lot of trouble to go through to pay to be a guinea pig while developers figure this stuff out. And once again a bunch of software & plug-ins you paid for go obsolete on the Mac platform due to Apple's constant messing with the OS/hardware. lol right-- please apple don't shatter the CPU...
