The Monomachine is sexy enough in silver, but I do really like that black’n’red style. Daamn.
Fun little experiments continue - I had planned on doing a little crossover action with the Monomachine and A4 where the A4 did drums and effects for the MM. But I didn’t like the drum sounds I came up with on the A4 (tried, perhaps with too much ignorance, to make my own). So I started tinkering with Monomachine again, initially doing just a kick based on the SID machine. And then remembering the Dataline “Monomachine Workflow” video I remembered that you could use the different waveforms on SID as kind of a cheap ‘sound lock’ and soon after accidentally coming up with a good hi hat sound while trying to make a snare, I had a complete drum kit on one track in short order that sounded better than my A4 attempts.
Also found the fun of turning track 6 into a Dynamix Compressor FX track on channel AB so everything runs into it. Using AMP trigs on the compressor track has opened up a whole new world of fun and evil sound design (suddenly able to make some nice fake sidechains and other volume stutters) while adding some really nice texture to the whole thing. Feed that into a taste of A4 overdrive and reverb:
