this thread, along with the new to modular thread, have been so helpful and inspirational. i’ve been planning my modular journey for a while now but some very interesting developments (norns / crow) have made my decision making process a bit more interesting. any thoughts from ya’ll would be greatly appreciated. so far, i have a 84hp case with these modules
i really want a simple, but flexible tactile synthesizer. not planning on making generative patches or anything. originally i was planning on getting an es-8 and and using it with vcv rack to add utilities and explore in a studio context. now the norns ( i was fortunate to get one ) / crow combination look like it could repleace the es-8 on top of letting me take it out for live shows. which brings me to my next thought, tuning. i would like to be able to make custom scales and recall them so that the modular is in tune with the songs i perform. my songs are all sample based and i perform them with mlr / octatrack. what would be a good way to go about this? the empty 4hp on the left are intended for two crows, leaving me with 18 hp on the right
i’ve had some really fun performances with a laptop and two grids. one grid controlling mlr while the other controls Aalto using the m4l "notes’ patch. i essentially want to reccreate that setup with norns / modular.
thank you all again for all the inspiration and in case you read this far
