The talk of Microtonic in this thread made me dust off my ten year old license and give Microtonic another go.
Microtonic is dope!
So easy to use. I’ve got it all mapped up in Ableton Push now, and it’s hands-on digital drums all day over here.
Now, after years of focusing on individual hardware boxes, I actually know what the hell I am doing, and I am able to dial-in sounds so quickly in Microtonic. Before, it was just a bunch of knobs to me. That was not Microtonic’s fault though.
Aside: Years of focusing on hardware has helped me learn what the hell I am doing, and it makes me appreciate software a lot more now. The Elektrons are great teachers that way.
