Re: The Hardware Thread

I'll put this here, as I think it sums up the reason I love using hardware. Really worth watching, and a stellar performance by MR. Dolby. Good fun to watch too.

A stand alone sampler player. I thought this was the real odd duck announced recently. I don't really want one, but I feel like this product is the answer to so many people's live PA queries...I've gone through lots of threads where people just wanted someone to make something like this. A super simple sample player.

I'm pretty much emptying a bunch of modules just to put the Nebulae V2 in my "this is an instrument" skiff.

See, it is stuff like this that gets me thinking "Wow, with four CV tracks on the A4 I could do some serious damage with that module." As it looks like I'd only need a power source and case. Bad. So bad. This is like a hifi, even more bad ass Bastl Microgranny (or Grandaddy in Euro land...).

Re: NAMM 2018

A bit like the new Minibrute, but I think probably more aggressive sounding, as Arturia have toned down the filters and wot not on the Minibrute. Think I like the sound of this more.

Re: NAMM 2018

I like the look of the new line 6 multi effects. The line 6 effects are pretty good imo. And it would be very good on synths too. I am surprised more synth people donít use the line 6 stuff actually.

That does have some interesting stuff going on. It doesn't scream "NEED" at me, but I do indeed like the sound of it. I'll have to have another listen to the new Brute demo, I hadn't noticed or picked up on the fact that they changed the filter. The Brutes always seemed very dry to me, even with resonance.

Re: NAMM 2018

I think Akai were the absolute winners of NAMM 2018.
2.1 firmware adds images of the Expansion packs and "bug fixes, wow.

Malekko Manther piqued my interest, but not really in the market for something like that.

I was hoping someone would fill the gap and release an Ipad dock with both midi and audio, but it seems like I'm the only one who wants one...

And the losers are those who bought it.

Like lol of course Akai will put out a solid pro product and stand behind it after 8-12 years of sucking donkey shit. Business as usual.

Well you know I am a fan.

the DL4 classic green delay is sick for its modulated delays, that box on the BassStation (orig) is instant Boards of Canada nostalgia-y leads. I keep it on an aux send.

Yeah, their time and modulation effects I always really liked. Itís more the drive and amp stuff that just isnít cutting it. Although it seems like they really stepped it up with helix, but I havenít tried it.
I am thinking the hx could replace my effects switcher, modulation pedal, reverb and delay and whammy all in one go. I could keep my wha and drive pedals in front of it and then use it for 4 cable with my amp,AND it switches channels! Could cut my pedal board way down to size!
I havenít seen any price or availability info on it tho.

Re: NAMM 2018

my gripe is that the Korg prologue was so close to what I want but not quite there. If they had put a decent mod matrix and more than one lfo i would've bought one.
