I definitely have GAS, but I've gotten to the point where I read manuals for stuff online to see if I really do want it.

At any rate what's the high pitched tone you're talking about? Is there an example? I like the DS-1, I circuit bend them a lot.

This is always a good idea. Personally, I'd never buy gear before reading a manual.

Or you could be like Clemon, buy gear, ask really dumb questions that would be easily answered if you read the manual, then get annoyed with people asking if you have read the manual, then admit you have not read manual and continue to expect the people on the forum to answer your question.. :wall:

Well in programming reading the manual was generally not approved... to put it politely shows weakness of character...

but my manual phobia relates to car maintenance manuals, the expression "Simply remove the ......" would result in several hours of violent language and the loss of skin to the knuckles... cuts and oil and grease on clothes and door handles...

But my favorite which I miss was the "This page is intentionally blank" I m mean were these manuals written by minimal poets...

use what you have
don't debate after the fact
make it work for you
get completely obsessed with that machine
live in it
push it's limits
make it submit for your will
solid advice, I have a self imposed gear ban in place right now, hoping it will last another 3 months at least. Went on a buying spree end of last year and I need to learn what I've got inside out before moving on.
That's definitely my mentality I at least want to get some material out of all this equipment.

The OP1 manual is not very useful. I remember I read an interview where the design team said they specific left it pretty minimalism so each user can learn to use them on their own terms... not so useful when you're not used to anything electronic at all. Synthesizers or Daws, haha I have just been an acoustic guitar player most my life. It is part of the fun, don't get me wrong, but right now I'm focused on the Nintendo 2ds Korg app and the modular lb Korg manuals.

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5)

Maybe later on I'll get a snippet of the tone I'm getting vs the tone i want. I'm not sure if I want it a octave higher or something... it's just not reaching where I want it to

It's interesting to see how everyone approaches things differently and comes up with very similar results.

I definitely agree it's great to get insight into how someone may go about making art art or producing music that you usually wouldn't hear much about.

eventually with enough trial & error experiments
you form your own style and/or multiple styles
they key is obsessively doing/creating
sustained willpower
it may take you making 100 tracks
before getting confident enough with your gear
some will be total trash
until you make it past "the hump"
don't give up
always learn from mistakes & overcoming obstacles
when you make system that totally works for you
do not constantly fuck with altering/swapping/adding gear
utilize "creative visualization" methods
conceptualization
then making your desired goal manifest
this method is applicable on multiple levels in life

Be disappointed with your work, shelve it and make new work. Come back to the shelf of artifacts later on, it may prove illuminating.

Repeat as needed.
