  1. Hope you had a great one Al!
  2. I haven't released anything in way too long but thank you! I'm working on something that I like right now, and I hope I can crank it out soon, but time is difficult to find. The Deluge sequencer is a piano roll, which works really well for my brain. I definitely don't use every capability it has though - I don't think many people do. I want to learn the Elektron way because I know it's better for spontaneous performance, so I'm not going to sell the Digitakt anytime soon unless it's to trade up to an Octatrack.
  3. I'm having a hard time with figuring out where the Digitakt fits in my setup, honestly. I got it on a trade for an MPC. I love how it sounds, but the Elektron sequencer isn't coming easy to me, especially since the Deluge is perfect for composing the music that I do. It's tough to convince myself to put in the hours of practice that I need to. I also seem to have a lot more fun with synthesis than sampling. The Deluge doesn't sound as good as the Elektron gear though, so I'm generally programming all my beats and melodies into Deluge, and having it control all the other gear, which I then either tweak as the sequences play, or play live on the keyboards. I love the Digitone Keys - the 4-part multitimbrality, individual outputs, audio input, and chorus/delay/reverb - it's great. The keyboard feels nice too, and has aftertouch. I'm getting the OLED upgrade for the Deluge next month, which should be neat.
  4. My first batch of cinnamon buns was a failure to adapt a bad recipe. This is my second, and it's delicious.
  5. Oh, and I've been slowly making stuff like this:
  6. This is what my living room looks like when Eleanor leaves home for 9 weeks to work. I got the K&M Omega 3-tier keyboard stand and it has improved my quality of life a lot. It's rock solid, very adjustable, and it stops me from buying more synths because I can't fit anything else on it. 😂 There's not much that a person can't do with this combination of synths and samplers. The Matriarch is a beast and I love it. I was able to get it last year after my cover band had a string of lucrative gigs.
  7. I built a wheelie desk for my synths etc. Should I paint it synthwave pink/blue/yellow or leave it raw? It's not supposed to look nice.
  8. Is anyone going to check out this tour? I have a mighty need but I'm not sure if a trip south is in the cards for me.
  9. Neat! I've heard of them of course, but they've never been on my radar. I didn't catch them on 70K.
  10. I tend not to wear them out and about in my small town, because People Would Talk, but for running around the house, they don't fall down or get in the way, and movement is unimpeded. Plus you can get fun colours and patterns. Highly recommended
  11. Thanks everyone! I had a quiet day, capped off with supper at my parents' place. Might jump in the hot tub in a bit. I wrote this tune yesterday and the footage of me dancing in tights while it plays is my birthday gift to all of you.
  12. Holy moly! Let me know if you ever need a house-sitter.
