@Munro really nailed it, answering my pic of the MNSS in the “setup”-thread:
I’m not saying that I don’t like to enjoy the explorative side of modular, but Synths and Drum Machines are a hobby that is only taking place when my little girl is asleep and the big girl is finding herself something to watch on TV
So this somehow limits the time I can spend on exploration as I’m also dependent on a stable Income which means I should be as awake as possible during daytime when being at the office.
If money would not matter at all, I would just shelve the MNSS until I find the time to do it justice. There are some really wonderful patches out there for this thing, but right now I am rather looking for the best trade-off between “using modular for it’s immediacy and it’s surprising elements” and “getting musical results rather sooner than later”.
And for that, the Black System looks way more suitable than the MNSS…
I mean, for heaven’s sake, the Morphagene is just a 4-week-exploration on it’s own The Erbeverb isn’t just putting reverb on your sounds, it drowns it with artefacts. You really need to explore, to absorb, to learn. I’m still not sure how to actually work with a Low Pass Gate rather than a Filter. Sure, it’s all rewarding once you got your head around it, but I just don’t have the dedication at the moment. I did get some really nasty basslines out of it though
And well, being that the Balck System isn’t exactly cheap, something has to go and that’s how I land on the MNSS. No final decision made, but right now, it all points to that direction
PS: Wow, that answer got longer than expected Obviously something i needed to write offe my chest
