Oh man. I finally took a deeper play with the different FM engines in the box. I was a fool to sell this thing previously. Holy jeez! Good stuff! Good Good Good!

nicely done, sir

[quote=“jshell, post:37, topic:5322, full:true”]And I think I’m all cool and clever until I see someone really put the machine to use singing 80’s J-Pop songs like this

oh man, everything about the programming this song is genius. The bass tone is sickeningly accurate, and the lead and chords are so well programmed that I don’t know whether I want to laugh at how amazing it is, or cry at not having the patience to write something like that on the monomachine!

I remember when I originally got mine, my initial intention was to use it to write the same kind of prog-synth music that I write in a tracker, and use song mode. Almost two years later, I still haven’t even touched song mode, and I’ve only made a handful of finished tracks with it—and they’re nowhere near as proggy as my tracker music.
I think I’m going to refuse any gig offers for the rest of the year, just so I can spend a good amount of time with the monomachine (and machinedrum!)… I have two project ideas for it—the first being minimalist tech/experimental stuff, and the other being FM percussion for an oceanic ambient album I want to create (think the Aquatic Ambience music from Donkey Kong Country mixed with 80s Shadows and Tangerine Dream)… anyway that’ll probably all change at some point :stuck_out_tongue:

So powerful! Capable of sweet gentle sounds and also wild crazy dark sounds. Both results sound as though that’s what it was made for :open_mouth:

I highly recommend checking out that guy’s Youtube channel. It’s soooooo good!


Omg moon over Marin :broken_heart:

Digi Pro Ensemble machine + Immortal waves + Strymon Big Sky Magneto + Analog Heat random LFO to dry/wet and filter cutoff to create heavenly, ever-shifting dub techno chords was my moment of clarity with :elmm:

Agreed on those DigiPRO bank packs from Elektron. Both Oxford and Immortal. I’m getting some of my dream chord sounds out of the :elmm: now with those, as well as good bass lines.


Yeah those packs are a big improvement on the factory waves.

I’m not too satisfied with the Oxford pack—too many waves that I can’t really use; I should try making my own or try the Immortal pack. Do any other packs exist? I have the AKWF waves but there are so many of them that I can’t even think of what I’d like to use, haha.

Can I load the immortal waves without a +drive?

Not as far as I know because the Digibanks are stored in the +Drive
