Funny thing with synths - I see something like that Ben, no idea what it is or does, but it looks cool and now I want one!

Agreed, this is why I need to stick with plugins, I know things will get out of control as per all my other collecting activities :lol:

I bought this one because I’m really into the random/chaotic/accidental stuff that can come from modular synthesis, and also really interested in additive synthesis, and the Buchla approach to sound shaping. I’ve also got another from the same manufacturer on order, that’s pure chaos.

I have just 'lost' 3 hours playing with the microbrute and my pedalboard. Soooo much fun. I feel myself being inextricably pulled into an oscillating worm hole that'll inevitably bleed my wallet dry.

That was cool. Thats how audio books need to be done!
Additive synthesis? Of I go to look that one up.

In terms of pure fun / chaotic / accidental things, the Make Noise Strega you say you have on order smashes the 0-Coast. I super love my Strega, and couldn't be without it.

Yeah for sure- that one has me the most excited. 0-Coast will be fun though- I’ve got a number of different ways to drive it, including a more flexible random/sample and hold generator.

there is a new Tracker just about to be released. I think it's more powerful and smaller. :-)

Need a better desk to set this all up at. I whipped this up out of some old shelves today, but I need more space! And a better way of organising the cablefest.

I’m not 100% sure that having the keyboard is a good idea, or even necessary.
