Re: Your Setups

Maybe it's for the imaginary noise fest?

Re: Your Setups

Sometimes, yeah. I like it on the MicroKorg, you can get some cool sounds with fast noise modulation.

Re: Post expensive gear you want to buy

Some fancy pants probably used one, or a popular channel on youpoop made a video, and now people are going mental. Same happened with MFB stuff, which used to go for very cheap indeed.

Re: noise on a budget

Warlock is spot on, If you don't have one, a cheapo shitty interface should be your first purchase. Then if you want to make loud farty noise sounds, just grab whatever gear you can from a buy and sell. Then buy a soldering iron, a glue gun, and this link and this link . Solder the wires to the poke...

Re: Post expensive gear you want to buy

I would like a stereo reverb unit (maybe such as this) but definitely out of budget for a long while, unless there are cheaper alternatives https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/91NVgIc9w8L._SX425_.jpg I like the Polara a lot, it's about half the price of the Avalanche Run. I also like t...

Re: KillSwitch

There's a couple of different ways to do this, although you might prefer pushbuttons instead. One way is to put the button in between the tip of the jacks. Another is to connect the jacks like normal, but also connect the button to both the tip and the ground on one jack. I personally recommend usin...

Re: So Adrian's trashed gear now!

If two people are having a debate, and a third person tells their child to start honking a horn to distract the two participants, that is a form of censorship. There are a lot of ideas that I don't like, but not letting them be spoken about doesn't kill the idea, it just makes it seem more desirable...

Re: Control / repeatability vs. Improvisation / chaos

I make a couple of small set ups that can play themselves, making generative sounds. Then switch them on and off randomly, without real conscious thought. Daniel "The Shock Technician" plays in a way that has a very classical music, Bolero-esque composition, which I aped. On the philosophy of noise,...

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...
