    Cheers, They are all amazing modules, even better together, way to many choices and options out there.

    How about yourself?

      Nice, make noise pressure points! i want to build a cheap box with a couple of oscillators and some sequencer/modulation stuff to control my moog with. The moog mother 32 looks tempting though.

      Would love to hear you record some noises from that beast.

        The Make Noise Maths ( modulator /mixer) with Pressure Points (plus Brains to make it a step sequencer) were my first modules I used with my Microbrute synth. Get a mult or some stackable cables and you're off. There are loads more power and skiff options than when I started.

        I've put some recent compositions here - VERIS I tend to record a number of alternative performances / improvisations from a patch and choose the most coherent. Keeping some semblance of melodic content is important but I also like a bit of atonal dissonance.

              This thread is particularly relevant to me. Those who know me can vouch for my record collecting, DJ'ing and putting together mixes but I've always had a desire to produce music. That collection of heady sounds has been an amazing inspiration to start fulfilling that long term ambition. I'm sure many have followed the same path.

              I've ended probably going down the most dangerous route for the wallet and for absorbing time = Euro Modular. This has encouraged me to sell off some unessential records to fund putting together my system, which actually has been a useful process to prune the collection.

              It's indeed an exciting time with some amazing affordable hybrid synths that bridge both digital and analogue technologies entering the market. That is not forgetting soft synths and apps.

              My system and knowledge has been growing over the last two years - I built the box and there's a little bit more room to fill - I'm carefully making up my mind up on my next move.

              F**k me! It's the groovy woovy version of the London Underground map

              That keeps you from being a part of it all
              Because you've got to be one with the one and all
              You've just got to be close to it all

                  I never know what to do with the music I make I generally file it away by year and keep random folders full of oddments of duff takes, random weirdness, field recordings and the like. I occasionally collate it altogether into a larger piece so I can clear space and make use of it. I've put together so much stuff over the last few years I've lost track although the most recent stuff always ends up on my soundcloud accounts so I can listen to it anywhere.

                  This is mostly from 2014 a random collection of snippets of music and field recordings put together in a random manner with added bass, spoken word and effects. I was going for a lo-fi Hauntology vibe like it was the work of some lunatic found on an old reel to reel.

                  I'd forgotten I'd used the Albert Hoffman sample in a previous mixcloud piece and other parts the more I listen which kind of sums me up anyway its cleared some HDD space and closed a chapter of that period. I really spent little time putting it all together and its more an experiment in randomness than anything else a kind of 'Faust Tapes' like exercise but nowhere near as good. It means I can start thinking about the other projects I've been working towards over the last year or so and I've learnt some things in the process.

                  Oh I was going to mix it down to VHS then to tape for the sake of messing about and experimenting but in the end I couldn't be bothered but its something I'm going to with something else in the future. It sounds like fun, cheap and I enjoy generally faffing about with electrical things for the sake of it, thinking I can get some odd effects going on playing with the tape as it records and quite possibly electrocuting myself in the process. I do really love doing what I do I'd go completely hatstand if I didn't have this outlet.

                    Been collecting gear and records for around the same time. Here's a few pics of the more interesting stuff. there's also a bunch of guitars, a vibraphone and a drumkit hidden around the house!

                      Blimey pgtofton is that a Mellotron under the Moog source under the space echo on the middle pic? Mouthwatering water stuff mate.

                      I'd love a set of vibes or a marimba, no way I'd get away with fitting them in this house as it stands not forgetting what they cost. Do have some half decent Xylophones though.

                        Mellotron, Moog and and a couple of tape echoes - Very nice

                        Mellotron in good order?

                          Yeah, pretty good. Few warbly notes but that's their nature. Belonged to Rick Wakeman, of all people.

                            I've never met anyone who's owned a 'Mellotron' or even been in the same room as one except at gigs of course. I have had a faff with a 'Moog - Source' though which I remember was very unique sounding and good for pads. The guy found it in a skip along with a 'Wasp' and one of those Tandy Moogs, lucky sod.

                            That looks like one of those old Italian suitcase organs at the bottom something like an Elka or something? I've had something similar if not the same but my rule is I must use it some composition before I get rid. I still have an old Crumar Electric Piano, it sounds rotten but its such a heavy beast its used to prop up some shelves in my studio. The beauty of investing in music gear is at worst you always break even after your initial investment. I have too many guitars too mention but my best ever carboot find was a full midi guitar setup minus the guitar including pickup, couple of leads and a GI-20 controller box. There was also a a couple of line 6 toneports and a cheap guitar multi fx in the box alongside various cables. £30 the lot, I couldn't get myself away from that stall and back to the car quick enough.

                            I found a home built 'Trancendant 2000' once in an awful cabinet that weighed a ton but it was broken beyond repair.

                              Yeah, I was the same. I've had a lot of different synths and keyboards over the years and sort of traded my way up to the Mellotron, Wurlitzer EP, Moog and a couple of Rolands. I've had them for a while and I know them, and they do pretty much what I want. Would be nice to have a Jupiter or Modular or something, but really what else would it add? I had a few Crumars over the years. Like a lot of the cheaper synths they do one thing really well. I had a whole bunch like that (and still have a few smaller Casiotones and Portasounds) but just needed the space more than that one thing...

                              The organ is an old italian portable, a Capri. Does that Farfisa thing absolutely fine.

                              The Space Echo was £50, years ago. most of the other stuff wasn't that cheap, but got some good deals. The Mellotron was traded for a Mesa Boogie amp plus cash.

                              Agree about the using stuff. funnily enough, they stuff that gets the most use ATM are the standard softsynths in Logic- been doing a bit of library/advert music, and they need to be flexible...

                                Ha - More interesting still! Any mods? What sounds did you get? Anything beyond the factory stuff?
