  1. While this is still undoubtedly sad news and everyone who passes deserves to be remembered, is there a specific reason you bumped this obituary thread from 2016?
  2. If you're using some kind of DAW from GarageBand on up, my guess is that it will have some ability to send MIDI to the Model D too. Plus as KTB said there's almost certainly every kind of freeware sequencer you can imagine available as a plugin from 808-style to the truly bizarre. If you want hardware/dawless there's a new generation of controllers being released right now that all have pretty capable sequencers right in the box: BeatStep Pro was one of the first, but KeyStep Pro now has that plus there are several new devices from Novation (incl. the LaunchPad Pro Mk3) that include a pretty capable sequencer. The Novation Circuit that I just got will also work in that capacity as will the Empress ZOIA (which sort of falls on the truly bizarre side of things), so there's a bunch of devices on the market where you get sort of a twofer.
  3. As I skimmed over the early part of this thread on my way to the new posts, I wanted to stop and call out this particular sound/tune. I think it's one of the precursors to what got me into synths (finally). There's something terrifyingly close about the timbre of the recording that's somehow comforting and awe-inspiring at the same time. It's like if you found out that some Lovecraftian cosmic horror had arrived and instead of eating you wanted to cuddle.
  4. He does have one hell of a voice. Bein' a young whippersnapper, my first exposure to him was the Beatles cover ("With a little help from my friends") that they used for the Wonder Years theme song. Even at approximately Fred Savage's age I knew that was something special.
  5. I snagged a used Novation Circuit from reverb the other day. Should arrive tomorrow night. My principal use for it is actually as a control surface for ZOIA (my other relatively recent purchase). ZOIA is super cool, but for real-time tweaking (as most of you are clearly aware) it's always nice to have more than one knob to turn. That said, I'm psyched to make some grooves on it and also to try using it to sequence the Model D and ZOIA together too.
  6. Oh! That's WAY better. I assumed you just meant we're all assholes.
  7. That's tough but fair. 😕
  8. I love that despite the success, the budgets and the fame, band practice always looks and feels like band practice.
  9. Agreed. The way things are these days that was way less bad than I expected.
  10. I'll be honest, I've never tried his stuff, but knowing how highly Michael-f*cking*-Hedges regarded that dude's technique, I'm thinking that's not the ideal way for me to bond with a new guitar.
  11. That's super cool. Quite a pivot at the end too.
  12. I love how almost every home-studio dweller I know has seen the light about trackballs and everyone else looks at me like I've got 3 heads when I pull one out for work. Also... dude ... That's an awesome setup. (Editor's note: The author is working on experiencing joy for other people vs. being jealous or envious. It sucks and it's hard.)
  13. It was a joke. I probably should have included my buddy here:
