The 909 clap is analog you madman - bit early to be on the Murphy's

Have you never read about the weird phasing you get from the 909 snare and clap together, as they share a noise source??

if only it was because of Murphy's Did not know about the phasing thing. Anyway, ya, SPD-11. That thing sounds huge (give me that at least )

909 clap is most definitely not a sample.

Huh? I don’t think the mkII has any x0x sounds that aren’t on the cards. (??) I don’t think it even has all the sounds from each card.

I'm pretty sure 808 and 909 clap have mostly the same circuit but 909 has reverb.

i'm sure there's already a thread here about circuits in vintage roland drum machines. can't think of anything more boring really.. at this point. does anyone really care about sounding like those machines exactly? have we not moved on already?

more pics. less talk.

Sunday afternoon spent enjoying the privileges gained from over two decades of obsessive gear hunting.

For the love of stereo analog... or maybe just because I can.

OM8 -> Analog Heat -> SBF-325 -> RE-301 (left) - Ef-X2 (right)

If anyone is interested, here is what all that gear ultimately sounded like:



....and here's the track "Lurker" it is being applied to (still a work in progress). A very gear lusty jam-based composition with Vermona DRM1 MkIII, Korg Monopoly, Arp Odyssey 2800, Onde Magnetique, Yamaha CS-01II, Roland RE-301, Echo Fix EF-X2, Studio Electronics Omega 8, Novation Bassstation II, Roland SBF-325, X0XB0X, Elektron Analog Heat, etc.



good times.

How do you type and see the screen at the same time? Do you like sit on the floor looking up with your hands on the desk? What about the other one? Do you just use mirrors to see what you're doing there?

Are we sure those are two separate laptops and not some kind of unholy conjoined Apple siamese twins?

it's a strange genetic mutation.. but.. my eyeballs are actually on my knuckles.. so i can type and look at the screen when it's positioned like that.

thx for putting that pic in my head :D i aimed for something like 30s-50s vibewise, minimal with a breeze of natural materials minus the cig smoke :D
..the tablelamp on the left is a 30s artdeco siemens lamp, the hanging lamps are from an industrial outlet
no rug for now, and no pets either :D

Why do people like rugs so much?

I don't think they help. If anything, they hurt. If you can, put in a cloud.

It's more like a secret location at the bottom of the sea for that particular Texas Tower.

Also, where are all the cables, audio and midi? Did you hide them be!ow the floor? That said, great collection of gear, I have a P12 and P08+Tetra (keys version), so, I can understand why you get them. Also, is the Integra i7 is really good for all bread and butter samples? I have an XV5080 with 4 SRX and 4 SR-JV cards but it's in the basement for practice and recording so, I was thinking to buy an Integra to set it up in the studio in the Den upstairs, let me know.
