It is entirely your fault for updating the iPad, and to a beta OS! :doh: I believe the development of software(Apple) shouldn't be held hostage by slack developers(Roland)..

A very "cool story bro" thread.
Let acid die. It had its day.
Absolutely not. Far lesser genres are still alive and kicking, so I don't see acid going anywhere.

Haven't really noticed increased noise when the VCA envelope is open, just some background noise- I just put a gate on it. Of course this is no hi-fi synth, its Behringer!

I also agree that the midi Scene selection should be done a bit different. I’d rather it used midi note numbers instead of program change messages.... but I can see why he did it like that. Why? All I can think of is following MIDI convention. So to now force that input code to filter out potential...

People on GS are convinced that a BS-80 is coming. (Yes, a CS-80 clone). So that they can do their best Vangelis impersonations in their man cave.

By definition, the Manther growls. But closer to 101 than 303. If you want a 303 sound you need a 303 or a clone . I don't think the Elektron is going to cut it for bass duties from what I have heard (compared to the popular bass monosynths).

It bugs me that even Sequentix continue with this misguided tradition of using program changes to control a sequencer. MIDI notes on a dedicated channel should be the default, so that any MIDI device can be used and it makes it easy to sequence the scenes from any other sequencer or DAW. Without eit...

Re: dead simple sh-101 style poly midi sequencing?

-play as many as 6 or 8 notes into one step
This could be a problem unless you pony up for a Pyramid.

The tempo fluctuates in Abelton since the MPC clock has some drift, but Abelton always plays back at a more rigid internal tempo so I would have to warp everything to the Abelton clock if I want to make any edits. Is there a better way to get these two to play together? Considering just dumping abe...

I use the Bozure ISO-201 strapped across the master inserts on my mixer. It obviously doesn't do compression but you could daisy chain something else off of it if you wanted.

OS 9 was the Golden Apple. Back then using a computer was actually fun..

I still remember the shock when I used OS X for the first time, and seeing my own fucking computer tell me "you do not have permission to do this"

It' s only gotten worse since.
