Got some new toys for the shed.
- NI’s Maschine for drum machine duties, which has some great sounding drum kits. I’ve haven’t quite worked out how best to integrate it with Ableton Live yet, although it works great as a pad controller for Ableton drum racks – but that sort of defeats the object of it!
- A Doepfer Dark Energy analogue synth which I’ve already modified with custom end panels and a second LFO out. Doesn’t always deliver the most predictable results, but I kinda like that.
- An Alesis ineKo, which is like a multi-effect version of the Bitrman with additional delays and vocoder programs built in.
It did require me to sell a few items though, so the Korg Pad Kontrol has gone to a new home.
