lots has been added to cheat codes over the past month and while the manual is comprehensive, it’s a lot to approach without a baseline. i also haven’t been able to jam with zach (zilchmo) in a while, which was my primary “user testing” – you learn a lot about instrument design when you question why the instrument you designed can’t do x.
while I’m still planning on some more-polished videos that deep-dive into specific features, I’m thinking that a few “here’s the nuts and bolts” sessions with live Q+A might be helpful to have handy. these’ll be a little tutorial-y, a little performance-y, a little brainstorm-y. I’d love for you to join me!
session 1: live input strategies
basically, how to set up cheat codes for live input:
- buffer management
- extended sampling time techniques
- one-shot vs looped recording
- structuring a wiggly wandery ambient exploration
- recording + remixing tempo-locked loops from another clock-synced device
I’ll also try to showcase strategies for both grid’d + gridless play
the internet says 2pm Eastern is the “best” across timezones. so, let’s say this Friday 2-3:15pm EST?
feel free to post specific things you’re curious about within the theme of live input strategies in the next few days and it’ll get covered!
