If someone can convince me otherwise I’m all ears… but I don’t really get the point of modular in a musicality context. Fine if you want to make random blips and sounds, but isn’t that it’s limit?
Every time I hear it being used, modular just sounds like modular.
It always sounds like a ‘can I do this with it?’ experiment, where the answer is usually yes, but, you know…zzz
Do you want to sound like YOU, or do you want to convince yourself that the modular sound is YOU??
I haven’t heard anything done on modular gear where I can recognise/distinguish an artists voice/signature behind it… anyone know of any work to disprove this??
I don’t mean to rain on anyone’s modular parade, if you enjoy it cool… but it strikes me as the ultimate GAS and TIME sinkhole there is.
The reason I bring this up is that I’m in the process of possibly picking up a Moog Matriarch… that’ll be as close to modular/patching that I’ve come, and at present I really don’t want a Eurorack…
