all, i’d love to hear your opinitions about my first ciat-lonbarde acquisition.
a bit of context: i am significantly downsizing my setup, which primarily means almost completely getting out of eurorack (shedding about 9u worth of modules) and only keep a small control skiff with monome modules and some expert sleepers stuff. this skiff will then be used to control two things: a) bugbrand synth voice, b) ciat-lonbarde idontknowwhichyet. all of this is going to be integrated with a laptop both for audio as well as cv via the expert sleepers stuff. the laptop will also run software for fx as well as looping things like tpv.
now, i’m trying to decide which ciat-lonbarde device to get for this. candidates are the plumbutter 2 and the cocoquantus 2. i love the crunchy and wild looping sounds of the coco, but it seems that the plumbutter with it’s capabilities of being a quirky drum machine complements the rest of the setup better, especially because something like tpv does cover a bit of coco territory.
as the investment for any of those two machines is quite significant, i’d love to hear your thoughts on either of them and how you seem them fit into what i’m trying to achieve here. sorry for the long post, and looking forward to hear your opinions!
