digitone is nice 

I am thinking I want to use my weirdo "vacation" between when this job ends and my freelance work really kicks up to re-create some of my favorite Circuit stuff on Digitone and start sculpting those into full pieces.

digitone is nice 

I can't stop thinking about how long it would take for me to get into this feeling using my old tools, and how much Digitone has inspired me so quickly. This is still mostly tweaked preset sounds!

@ranjit yesss. I've been trying to hone in on some intersection between ambient music and John Carpenter/Lovecraft soundtracks, and this one is happily in that vicinity.

Digitone only, again. Another one that is just a small segment of the over-an-hour I spent just zoning in and making sounds.

a better question about samplers 

@clinkingdog Good luck! I am very happy with the 404 and am now very excited about using the Digitone to sequence the 404 to use it for both drums and other weirder sample stuff.

a better question about samplers 

@clinkingdog you're right about both things! Definitely fiddly. If you want non-fiddly, I would imagine the easiest way to achieve it is Ableton and some sort of Push or whatever. Please do tell me if you hear recommendations for not-extremely-expensive but not-fiddly solutions!

a better question about samplers 

@clinkingdog I am extremely curious to hear other people's answers also!

a better question about samplers 

@clinkingdog circuit's sampling is so trash it's not really useful to think of it as a sampler, more of a "sample player." People can be really idiosyncratic about their sample workflows, so I'd recommend watching some videos on the Volca Sample and the PO-33 to see if either interests you!

When someone has to multitask to do a job for you, you should apologize.

Praising people for their multitasking skills reinforces the toxic productivism of capitalism.

Entirely made on the Digitone since it arrived this afternoon, recorded directly into Audacity. The Digitone is... extremely fun.

Pieces like this one are hard to translate into a format to share with people because they're designed for me to be able to meditatively noodle around on top of them for like an hour

An old standby setup (Microkorg, MS-70CDR, Ditto Looper) means I can't promise I've never made something like this before haha
