Today is a special day. That’s why I expanded Mantikor with – Bloom!Read more "Riemann’s World: A special Day for Leopold"
A few weeks ago, I described how the combo of Granturismo and Groove Riemann could turn into Mantikor. Only now that it’s come to this, the end result is quite different. This is the first chapter of Mantikor’s journey through Riemann’s World.Read more "Mantikor’s Journey: Departure"
I recently talked about “Granturismo” – a setup thing where I played with not programming (or recording) sequences.
This has now turned into “Riemann’s World” – what others might call an ecosystem but which is rather a set of sets in a metric space.Read more "“Riemann’s World” – an exercise in not programming (sequencers)"
I played with a setup that plays loopable random melodies to make techno. Now I’m thinking about making the drums random, too.Read more "“Granturismo” – and other non-programmable techno machines"
The title is somewhat misleading, as it often is: looking at the current TNG Mothership, I subjectively try to figure out how often I use each module, and how well I know it. Are there any interesting result?Read more "Using and Knowing Modules (an emotional statistic)"
I looked through the old (and new) designs of modular things I had on modulargrid.net. Time to discuss, and retire some of them.Read more "Synth Thoughts: Modular Designs (past and present)"
Pretty much an ongoing discussion: I’d like to remove Motion/Mental from the Mothership to use it as the Mescaline monolith, but retain the ability to make unusual percussive sounds. This is the discussion.Read more "Synth Thoughts: A Drum Voice for the TNG Mothership"
“Spielsachen” has been going on for quite some time (more than two years), and resulted in fifty videos to date.
Here’s my personal picks from that pool of modular thing performances – what are yours?
The Doepfer A-111-6 is the smallest and cheapest synth voice in Eurorack format. But is it any good? This is one of the “yes, but…” or “even though…” reviews.Read more "Review: Doepfer A-111-6 Mini Synth"
Some time ago, I rambled about potential setups which, why they did contain some modular content, had that as a minor component. Now, it’s time to look at results and experiences.Read more "Tech Thoughts: Hybrid Modular Setups"
