Damn. I used to live very near Aberdeen, when I still lived in Columbus, MS. I could drive there from here. I kinda want that (for yard work, not for noise). :o

hey, glad I found this old thread so I can avoid making a new one.
I recently starting building patches in puredata and I got to the point where I figured out how to make some effects and direct and input signal through them. Discussing this with some friends, I was told I should look for a exterior sound card. With my current set up I could plug my entire xenyx 802 or even the reverse - put a signal through the card into a lapotop and from there - into the digital input of the mixer. There are really a lot of options, but I'm on a budget. I don't think I can afford to spend more than 100$ at this point.
what does your experience tells you will work for me? at first I just wanted to work on a more minimalistic projects where one physical object meets another "digital object" that's actually the pd patch, but writing this I'm actually stunned by the variety a set up like this could offer.
until recently I did all of my stuff on analog equipment, but from a couple of months I've been working on pd so I wanted to try this out. . .

eye run multiple sound devices including cards on main studio machine...
for running into board then buss hardware FX
then back into machine
for doing real time record flyoff mixes and such
you can also run usb hub and multiple audio devices on your laptop
for creating hardware i/o loops
between multiple programs or whatever

Is DS-10 like a kaossilator lite? I need to look into this. Also, whatever tracker program that can be obtained for DS looked pretty cool

Currently I'm having way too much of a blast with VCV rack and Max For Cats' OSCiLLOT, even though I'm a bit of a patching newb. Reaktor still seems too complicated to get into as well as general M4L, but I think I might've found my happy medium here

No it's not really anything lite. :) More like heavy. No idea why nintendo and korg decided to get together make an incredible power electronics/harsh noise/gabber/acid workstation but there you go. :D

It's mostly kiind of an emulation of the Ms-10 i think. Two synth channels, 4 drum sounds (resampled from the same kind of synth editor!) or more if you use DSI and the 2nd version of the cart... Even has a (limited) semi-modular patchbay section on each synth. It does have 2 chaos kaoss pads per channel which you can use to control gate + note plus two other parameters of your choice...

very highly recommended, get it! The real cartridge is easy to find on ebay or better still DS flash carts are cheap these days + then you can use homebrew music/sound apps too, there are some fun ones, GlitchDS etc. + i've saved multiple copies of Ds-10 in different folders so i can have more save slots

oh and you can sync multiple DSs via wireless for more channels, tho i haven't tried that yet

not exactly the best demo but here's some HNW i made using the ds-10 :) https://soundcloud.com/cementimental/ds ... oisevember

@Timdrage: could you explain a little bit the reasoning behind the patch you made with the DS app? I don't own a DS but I have Reaktor so I could probably create a patch that exploit the same idea without having the same sound....
