Re: Your Favorite Acquisitions in 2020

I like many others in this thread it seems, did quite a lot of shopping in 2020 but I also ended up selling a lot gear to fund them. My favorites are: Motas-6 - This one's my favorite by far and I've ended up selling off all my other monos / semi modulars as a result of it and bought a second one, I...

Re: Motas-6 synth

Hey everyone, I've been quiet as I've been focused on learning / creating but I've come to love using my Motas for drums more than anything else in my studio and I thought I'd share something I put together today that uses only my two Motas-6 with all sounds other than the muffled mid-range bass sou...

Re: Korg Volca Sample woes

When I first got my Volca sample, I really struggled to get samples onto it but since figuring out a few things that were causing issue, I've had it work very reliably (Fails maybe 1% of the time when uploading samples) The things that were wrong for me were: 1. The audio output from my old laptop w...

Re: Motas-6 synth

New Motas-6 firmware v0119 is now released. The main addition is a new feature to randomise 'towards' the patch settings in the previous fast-access slot. This allows using regular randomise to move 'away' combined with this feature to 'randomly deviate back'. See page 33 of the updated User Guide....

Re: Korg Volca Sample woes

anyone else having issues with unresponsive buttons on the volca sample? it happened on the SQ-1 as well. the connection seems to be coming back after a while, after pushing them again and again and again. I wonder what caused this, sun light or humidity…? Yeah, I have one that's maybe 4 years old ...

Re: Polyend Tracker

Yeah I guess the right thing to do with the Poly if the need to make money was the reason behind that decision would've been to resume support for it as soon as they were able to. I hear you all, all valid reasons for being pessimistic and angry about it, I guess I stay optimistic about it in that I...

Re: Polyend Tracker

Can I ask what exactly it was that made you guys so doubtful about them fixing the stems issue? I thought they said they were working on it, I've had a quick read through this thread and over on lines and don't quite get the degree of pessimism here. I agree that it was un ideal / bad of Polyend to ...

Re: Gear you own multiples of.

I have two Motas-6 and two Volca Samples, they're my favorite bits of gear and so much so that I'll probably end up getting a 3rd of each some day.

Re: Squarp Pyramid vs. Pioneer Squid

I for the most part program my music rather than play it by hand (I'll play the ideas but perfect them when programming) With the above in mind, I ended up selling my Pyramid. I did like it but there was a few things I didn't love. The actual physical interface of it was something I didn't get on wi...

But I'm also generally really busy lately so It's difficult for me to find the time currently. Until then, I'll be happy to try ...

Re: Patchbay appreciation thread

Yeah for me it's the above, I like experimenting with various effect chains or running synths through other synths. Basically, the patch bay makes the difference between having the thought "hmm.. it might be interesting if I ____" and actually doing it.

I've got a total of 48 inputs with my patchbays and I've got pretty much every input of my gear hooked up to it. I really love the flexibility it gives in getting experimental with how you route things, there's a lot of things which are now techniques I regularly use which I'd not have tried to use ...
