Re: Show us yr DIY!

Personally speaking, the APC may have a bit too much fiddly soldering for a beginner and not enough "This does that" sort of learning. I've been recommending the Bazz Fuss (http://www.home-wrecker.com/bazz.html). It's an effect, not a synth, but the parts can be spaced far apart for easy soldering p...

Re: Rochambeau Musical Apparatus

Recently started a job as a welder and fabricator. What the fuck is with noise guys working in metal shops?

Re: DAWs for noise?

I really like AudioMulch for computer noise, but it's $189. Try the trial anyway, I can't remember the limits it has. I also use PureData, which is free but VERY deep and can be imposing to get into. You can do pretty much anything with it though.

I dunno if I'm alone on this, but they seem really gimmicky. Just a pre=built lunetta, really. Neat if you can't be arsed making one yourself, but not at the price point they want.

Re: Found readymade synth modules

Lads, I dunno anything about building modular shit, would you reckon this PSU is a decent starter for some DIY modular shits?

Re: 1u or tabletop WAV recorders w/ SD and/or USB input and PC connectivity?

If you want to trigger samples, you get something barely OK and cheap (Akai MPX), to really great but woefully expensive.
