I recently got a uO_C (micro Ornament and Crime), which allows me to pitch quantize my modular, which I couldn’t before. Now, I actually realize that for the techno I make it almost sounds off now when I quantize it.
It’s interesting, because I’ve always automatically had quantisation on every piece of (Elektron) gear before I had this with my small Eurorack.
Not a “problem” to be solved; I just unpatch the Quantizer again, most of the time
But I’m curious if more people have thoughts/experiences here. (When) do you use Quantizer in your modular or not?
And does that impact the way you use your Elektrons? (For example, do you use your Elektrons unquantized, just turning the fine Oscilator pitch encoder?)
I’m guessing that for many more chromatically melodic music styles this isn’t really relevant, hence my specification of techno in the title. But do share anyways if that assumption is wrong.
