The doofus that I am, I only just now learned how to use a keyboard as a controller for the active track on a Digitakt but holy shit it's exactly the feature I've needed all along. It feels so unimaginably good to be able to instantaneously play any synth I'm using in a given sequence with a push of a button, plus I'm finally free of the single octave limitation of the built-in keyboard

Between the spring reverb tank, arpeggiator, and sequencer, this thing is pretty much catnip for me.

I bought a Sub Phatty today and finally fulfilled my dream of owning a Moog keyboard. It's a goddamned beautiful thing and sturdy as hell to boot. There really isn't anything quite like the fullness of sound you get out of them.

Really looking to trying out the Omnisphere compatibility

Traded my Wavestation and DX7 (and an EHX Cathedral) for a Prophet 08 and Drumbrute today. Probably will flip the 08 once I sell some other stuff and upgrade to the Rev2, but I'm pretty close to my ideal workflow now

I finally put together a really nice studio desk console, after never having anything really permanent, and i have some racks to fill up, but besides a few power conditioners and my high-end mastering stuff, i'm really straining to find other worthwhile shit to fill rack space that isn't redundant and already done way cheaper and questionably just as good, in the DAW. I'll for sure get a patch bay and basically use it as inserts for effects pedals and whatnot, which i may get a few rackmount slide-out shelves for..idano...
i figured since everyone's been working in-the-box for so long, that there'd be tons of old neat possibly unique rack gear out there on the cheap, but most stuff held value...even out-dated digital verbs and delays and shit. It might be cool to have one of the earlier Auto-tune racks..those aren't so pricey, and maybe, like, the tube driver OD or Rat rack, as well. definitely would like a nice, standalone analog filter though..(the sherman filterbanks suck, btw, unless you like annoyingly distorted filters)

I impulse bought a 2 Pole recently when I saw one at a tempting price. It's a fun little box. Thought it was a bit noisy at first then I moved it around the chain and it quietened down for some reason. Still not sure it's 100% true bypass like they claim. Lots of fun to be had running percussion or sequences through the envelope follower. Drive is ok. Rectifier seems a bit gimmicky in most circumstances. Love running cheap digital synths and keyboards through it. Really adds a lot of character to my car boot boards.

Most fun I've had is playing some fat microkorg bass through it, setting the lfo real fast and riding the cutoff for some Daft Punk talk box sounds. I've caught my mouth pulling some ridiculous involuntary shapes, lol.

edit: just saw you don't like 'annoyingly distorted filters,' eugenics. The 2 Pole does introduce some distortion-type artifacts in some situations, so that's something to bear in mind. I'm not a filter connoisseur though so I couldn't tell you if it's particularly egregious in that regard.

Hard to go wrong with the Moogerfooger low pass filter, though obviously that's not rack-mounted. I've been interested in checking out the Chase Bliss Condor. A friend of mine swears by their pedals as Moogerfooger killers.

I ended up pulling the trigger on a Streichfett cuz the orchestral tones you can coax out of a Juno have got me switched on Bach lately

something happened while i was switching banks on the digitakt and now every menu for every saved pattern has alternate options, like AMP has "SND CTRL1" "SND CTRL2", TRIG has a keyboard

what the fuck, how do i revert it back to the standard shit

Sounds like you've clicked one of the bottom row buttons, which are MIDI tracks and display the things you were seeing. When you hit a key in the top row, do you still see the alternate menus?

attn boonie and circuit owners, new firmware

as someone who uses the circuit more like a drum machine/practice looper than an active instrument, the ablilty to chain more patterns to make song-length loops and tie notes across patterns (making drones easier) has me pretty happy!

Chain patterns, make songs. It’s called “Pattern Chain Sequence,: and it lets you chain together up to 32 patterns into a chain… or even chain chains into more chains, for 16 chains of patterns, then select any order you want. You can also use this live as you play by appending patterns.

Tied/drone notes. Each step can be tied to another, all the way into long drones.

Nudge off the grid: Each step gets 1-5 ticks delay, or use Synth Micro-Nudge “create new, more complex rhythms like triplets across the beat.”

I'm sorry. Synth come, synth go. But synth always return. :(

Admittedly I partially justified my circuit purchase by telling myself in a couple of years my kid will be able to fiddle with it
these days for some reason they just like pressing the record and play button, rather than the 32 other buttons that make cool noises so I've still got a way to go
