My favorite use so far for my DT has actually been for doing some video game SFX sound design!
I have the outputs patched into a UFX+ and then I take two outs from the sound card into the inputs on the DT.
Now I can send anything from any software in my computer or from any piece of gear hooked up to my computer to my DT-bus and sample it.
Then I hit record in Cubase and start messing around with the sound on the DT. Managed to knock out a lot of good stuff really quickly!
I don't know if this is something that people do but for me it was an eye-opener.
Usually when I sound design I just stack and drag around stuff directly in the timeline (which is how most people I know do it as well) but using a sampler like this was just so quick and so much fun.
I guess using a sampler like this should have been obvious considering how many bleep and bloop-knob twiddling sessions I've recorded from synths but apparently not haha.
For more complex and/or precise sounds I will probably still have to use a DAW normally but for more simple stuff... this could keep being really good. Looking forward to exploring this more!
One thing I'm going to try out for doing layered sound designs is to set all the tracks to trigger on MIDI channel 1 and then just start populating the audio tracks with sounds and see where that goes. Control all should come in really handy for something like this!
Anyone else have any experience with doing stuff similar to this?
