Knobs in the wrong spot :frowning:


#2399

Yeah, they seem to high, but the mod and pitch wheel seem correct, maybe it’s just prospective? Otherwise no idea.


#2400

I’m totally not hating but aren’t most of Steve Akoi’s songs ghost written anyway? That being said, could it be a Dave Smith, they have a fair few black keyboard synths if I recall or a Studio Sledge (or w/e its called)


#2401

Looks like a synth with an addon module custom built into it. I’m probably wrong of course.


#2402

I couldn’t tell you a single song he’s known for lol. I just watch Sanjay C a lot and this came up, and I like solving a mystery XD


#2403

Haha. No worries. Like I said not really hating it just struck me as funny. Only thing I know about him is he throws cake at the crowd?


#2404

Or imagine having a 2 line LCD screen and no knobs


#2405

I don’t miss the days…


#2406

Ok, I’ll say it. The Model:Cycles is ugly as fuck.


#2407

And the Samples. Good thing I love it so much lol. And maybe I’m just a filthy savage but the some of the knobs on my Samples are stained/dirty looking already.


#2408

But you can cover it with dumb stickers!


#2409

To each their own, but those went right in the trash when I got my Samples lol.


#2410

Still got my stickers, kept them in the box which is in the shed.

cancerian, such a hoarder :sunglasses:


#2411

I wrote my first pattern on the Cycles and it was already good enough to be sampled in the Force to turn into a track, great reverb on that thing.

No idea what to do with the Chord machine though…


#2412

And a brief demo recorded one handed, so no tweaking

Do you have an opinion on how the Cycles is as a synth synth versus an percussion synth. All but on of the machines is percussion oriented if I recall, that’s what turned me off on it in favor of trying the Digitakt.

I like the demo! A lot of cool noise and insect sounds : ) Also dat kick drum!


#2414

I don’t know yet, so far for me, it’s a drum machine and that’s my intended use, plus a sequencer for the Microfreak, but I spent less than 2/3 hours on it…


#2415

That is my impression of it. Trying to figure out why so many people seem to own both the Cycles and Samples. I guess different flavors. No worries, just curious : )


#2416

Ope! Digitakt on the way!


#2417

Not my style, but I’m sure some people are going to love this thing.
