My name is Igor and I'm beyond excited to become part of this amazing community here. You guys all seem to be very intelligent and fun, and a place altogether is standout! One of the things I like most about it (besides remarkable UI & layout) is that you all are very supportive and encouraging (e.g. lllllll.co/t/6410) and seem to genuinely be interested in hearing others' music, giving advice and et cetera. I can honestly say it's something I've been missing, because most gear-related communities online are centered around nugatory things like mutual insults and stockpiling
I also must say there's many familiar names on here, so those of you we've met on other forums, come in and say 'Hi' — as to the other 99%, I'm currently mentally preparing for a huge project / undertake, where I want to film and edit a one-hour long performance (fingers crossed, it will be something!), but that is going to take time of course, so for now I'll post a shorter clip that shall surely serve a good intro, too:
As you probably have understood by this point, I much prefer working with a hardware rig (and even record on sd card, bypassing computers whatsoever), but surely you don't just wake up in a studio room with $5K worth of gear, so I was using everything from plug-ins to cheap casio through effects. I was also very pleased to find a dedicated madrona labs sub-forum on here: purchasing aalto in 2011 has been a turning point that's drawn me to eurorack & buchla modulars and kindled a passion in making my own sounds. (Some of these even come with your aalto installer: look up radiokoala in the presets list!)
In terms of custom sounds, be also sure to check out some of custom percussion I made on modular on a 31:43 mark in this amazing mix:
If you have time, I also strongly suggest that you listen to it as a whole, because there's no other recordings to my knowledge that would better highlight the best of contemporary Belarusian music. (Both I and Natalia 'Mustelide' are from Belarus). And if this has got you any interested in post-Soviet artists and musicians, can't recommend highly enough this fantastic resource called FFM (or Far From Moscow) — look it up.
Last thing (as I have to stop somewhere), here is this 45-minute long set / studio session I recorded last year preparing to a coming live show:
Thx for reading this far,
