Got my hands on some old school kit. It’s amazing how far we’ve come in only a little over ten years.


Funny, my buddy Jim Schoenecker up in Milwaukee was just trying to sell a complete Sputnik system including the keyboard just a few weeks ago. Looks spiffy for sure!


It is a most excellent day. After 5 months and several unforeseen pitfalls due to the published design being unfinished, Michigan Synthworks finally finished building me a fully functioning Sin Phi Miasma! This thing is awesome. As I write this I’ve got it patched up as the filter, vca, and envelope of a voice all at once.


Finally received my Norns after the longest 3 weeks of my life!!!

Straight out for a Negroni :smiley:


Here’s my little darling – I made the skiff out of an aluminum travel case I found online. The modular is attached to the lid, and the depth of the other half is enough that I can leave things fully patched :slight_smile:

Pic is from my instagram, where I also post videos.


a little setup to work through Just Type studies over the weekend


A couple photos and video of practice and performances on 6/23 with and within Colin McIntyre’s Resonant Lung—a MIDI-controlled church organ deconstructed and rebuilt inside of a shipping container in Austin, Texas.

Yeah! I actually picked that up from him to rebuild this system (which my roommate technically owned). Made a few changes, but I’m really liking it thus far!!



sweet Jim, love that dude


post-tea earthsea by midnight lamplight


from last summer when the boat was much larger, the boxes more numerous. shorter hair, longer shorts. best buds up front.


Figured some might get a kick out of this. Knowing I was going to take this on tour, I sorted out a little lunchbox for my case. Works great!


This afternoon I received in the mail the Vixen mixer, by KVgear, that I kicked in for on Kickstarter some time back last year. It’s the smallest mixer I’ve seen with two auxiliary send-returns, a feature I like on my large Mackie mixer and really want in a compact size. This was a quick proof-of-concept experiment after lunch: two Buddha Machines and a Gakken theremin, each on their own channel, with one of the aux going to/from a Korg Kaoss Pad Mini KP, and the other aux to a Ditto looper and then back into its own channel.


Nice :slight_smile: , I’ve been eyeing that as well. I’m wondering how it handles eurorack signal levels?


I’m going to experiment a bit. I’ll report back.
