I wanted to actually comment briefly on this aside from the YT clip–too busy a day.
I have one on the way, as well as a Wangernumb, a Giant B0n0, Squid Axon, and a 4Seq.
Those are in addition to the ones pictured here:
As I mentioned elsewhere, I’m slowly putting together a whole NLC instrument of sorts, with a few more still to come a little later.
There’s something very special about his modules–not just individually but the way I think they work as a system. Naturally, you’ve got to be interested in this kind of an approach to synthesis–I imagine the Peter B., Gieskes, et al fans will feel pretty at home with NLC, although there are clear differences–but if you are, wow.
There’s also something about the sound his modules produces that’s really seductive to me, irrespective of function, sequencing ability etc. I don’t know much about components and circuits and whatnot, but something about the sound in his demos gripped me immediately. I was not disappointed in how the modules I do have correlated to that feeling from the demos.
This is something I don’t see discussed much when it comes to Euro gear: pure sound. Lots and lots of discussion about functionality, control, CV manipulation, modification of an already existing sound, but not so much about pure sound–tone, timbre, dare I say quality, etc., and I think there are clear differences from one manufacturer to another. This is really subjective stuff, but for whatever reason, the SOUND of these modules really, really speaks to me.
More on the aforementioned pieces as I assimilate them.
