I sold my Roland SP-404SX. Didn't quite do what I wanted (switching between loops smoothly). No regrets
The volca keys.I have owned a monotribe for years. when i heard about the keys i assumed it was as phat as the monotribe. it is. However the mini knobs dont really seem to fit well with the many editable synth paramaters on the keys. they are a bit to random and id prefer the big giant moog knobs to get the sweeping arcs etc... comically the fiddly little knobs work great on the sample. they are somewhat random adn that actually works on the sample! If Korg decides to make a volca keys but fullsize synth i would buy one in a heartbeat@!
i´m thinking about selling all my gear (op-1, micro brute, dark energy, mixer, effects, cables and some other noiseboxes etc.) and getting an analog four. i have to kids, a little spare time and mostly i´m fiddling at the microbrute, just having some sound. i have no fixed desk for my music gear, so i´m thinking about having ONE box including all effects, mixer sections, sequencer, synth machines + an lpk25 keyboard.but i don´t know..
Heron I will drink margaritas to NO NO NO soft ware at all . ok apart for mixing but only for those who mix , they have a slight excuse but cannot drink or get drunk or embrace the love for big mistakes turn into muzak hardware spills. SHERMMAN FILTERBANK i was in love we slept together quite sometimes she was a grizzling bitch i will never forget me pimping her
@anomalous jamming was the problem for me. I wanted to use it to play beats that I made on the OP-1 in a live set up. DJ mixer with the SP on 1 channel and the OP-1 on the other. At first, I sampled each individual track to separate pads. It was really tough to hit even more than 1 pad at a time at exactly the same moment to get the samples to line up. So when that failed, I sampled full 4-track beats to different pads, but it was still hard to switch between loops in a fluid way for me. The pads on the SP are too stiff for my liking. It has a lot of great features and sounds great, but I never got good enough at using it on the fly. Maybe with more practice I could have made it work.
Sold a Virus A, Microkorg, MC303 and Yamaha SU10, TG300 and RM1X to get a laptop and Reason. I didn't regret it at the time but now I'm back on a hardware tip, I'm starting to slightly regret all the sales. It's the Virus and (funnily enough) the Microkorg that I miss the most.
Recently I got rid of a Volca Bass. I thought it would be a perfect companion for the OP-1 but I just couldn't get along with it and found I was shoehorning it into songs just for the sake of it. Oh well.....
