Right. I’m back on. You’re really helpful with your replies, I absolutely appreciate it.
I’m experimenting with my rig right now, trading and swapping stuff to see what works, but I’ve now landed in a Digitone Keys and a Moog Sirin, which would work stupid well together. I’ve removed the Octatrack for the moment, mainly because I’ve found that I want to go deep in my compositions and their structure, rather than warping of the audio content itself.
But samples for loops and additional beats, atmospheric glitches and scratches, the additional layer of ambience when needed - I’m thinking I’m gonna try a rig where I’m pretty bare bones in HOW I work with samples, but not with the content itself.
And portability and convenience is absolutely crucial to me. My space is stupid small. Just the fact that it sounds pro and fits on my tiny book shelf, makes it appealing.
I’m starting to hear some good sounding demos from it here and there now, hence my swaying back towards maybe getting one after all.
