I just got the Plonk and I’m really enjoying it, but I’ve never touched any Mutable module for whatever reason so wouldn’t feel comfortable comparing.
With my modular, I’m always trying to find that impossible setup that allows me to do almost anything with minimal quick patching changes. Hard to be too concrete because I’m always taking it apart and putting it back together. I had been working within MAX for a bit more elasticity in my timing (using the ES-8 in the little case next to my modular), but I had some ideas that had me return to the Octatrack. Plus, the ease of effects that would’ve required more time and CPU in MAX. I put a lot into the MAX patch though and definitely want to return to it in time.
Anyway, Soundcloud has a few live sets and a CD release on West Main Development is snippets from other live sets too. I haven’t put out as much stuff lately because I’m not so productive at finishing things, and I think I feel less spark to finish and/or release with the insane amount of stuff people are releasing these days. Maybe I just feel like I’m adding to the noise sometimes.
