Re: MPE users: your opinion now?

The most wildly overlooked jewel in the MPE crown is the Polyend Medusa. Sends full MPE output, and can be picked up for very little money, comparatively. I haven't hooked up a MIDI cable to my Medusa yet :D I like its grid for controlling the synth itself, keeping it all self-contained. In that co...

Re: Dreadbox Medusa monosynth

Just got a Polyend Medusa on Monday and I'm in love. It's incredible. Good lord. I have 2 question about GRID mode. I programmed some sounds per step in GRID mode, but realized I didn’t program the base sound in normal note mode. Is there a way to copy the synth settings from the GRID mode parameter...

Re: Old krk monitors worth keeping?

Have you tried plugging them into a different outlet on a different circuit? You may be getting weird conflicting issues with whatever else is sharing the KRK power. For what it's worth, I'm still using my Dynaudio monitors that I bought in 2007, and have no plans to upgrade them any time soon. Old ...

Re: iOS MIDI arp or sequencer?

FugueMachine and StepPolyArp together is bloody fantastic. Rozeta is a nice little suite of tools, too. Host them in AUM and then get addicted to iOS music making.

Re: What is a piece of gear that you will never part with?

I wouldn’t sell my Digitone, 0Coast, or Virus C. I’d say the same for my Digitakt and Octatrack MKII, but I’m hoping for something to replace the latter, and I’d be all about an MK2 of the former.

Re: Which tablets support MIDI out properly ?

Samsung tablets do. I’ve used both my phone and tablet for midi out using a Mio midi usb cable. I read a quote that "some Samsungs do, some don't" which I suspect might have been based on how old they are. May I ask what tablet you use ?

Re: randomise

The Digitone has a randomize feature which I’ve found to be a great starting point for new sounds. What’s cool is that each page can be randomized individually, too.

Re: IPad as send and return effect box ?

I have a Zoom u24 with my iPad. I do wish I had more IO, though. It is battery powered, which is great for traveling. It has 2 XLR Combo inputs. It's a little larger than I'd like, as well, but it's pretty light. If you get the U44, you can add attachments for more IO and other stuff.

Re: Midi Matrix / Midi Routing

I've had a Yamaha MJC8 for a while. No USB, only MIDI, but it works perfectly and is super easy to program. It's not the most versatile (I can't assign to controllers to one device, for example) but it does everything I need and is super stable.

What about the RME Hammerfall and then pick your own ADAT feeds? I’m considering that and then keeping my Safire and Octopre for my Analog IO?

Probably a Digitone. I can't actually play well enough to make a keyboard worth it for me, so the sequencer on that thing would be very useful. I also love the sounds. Wish it had more voices, but otherwise, that'd be my choice. If I'm also allowed to bring a sequencer of some sort, then probably a ...
