Hello to all

I have been browsing patches on this forum with a G2 engine.
The sound creations I have seen & heard in this community w/ the G2 is stunning, thanks to all who have shared their hard work and talent. I am looking forward to getting to know how to work with this fabulous tool. Of course, studying Ian-s' performances isn't the simplest place to start but it is certainly an inspiring body of work. If I had a spare engine, it would be sent air mail to NZ.

Thanks to all who have contributed here, it really is what persuaded me to buy the box. This machine begs for involvement, hard to just get the feet wet. Hope I'll have the time to really dive in. This is a new hobby for me, I play and teach on the classical guitar as my main musical endeavor.

I had a question, but figured it out... I'm sure I'll have more along the way.

Kind Regards,
Michael

There are 42 principles of Ma'at1 and that's an omission in the manual ... however it's easily (re)discovered by experimentation Exclamation

Oh, and it's in the hitchhikers thingy too of course, and as the king explained to Alice it's the oldest rule in the book (all persons more than a mile high leave the court).

But I don't think 42 really is the meaning of life, as all good answers are "three", sometimes "two", but no matter what the exact answer is it's always something about cleaning up the mess it seems.

Anyway, things are hard to "prove" here (personal as well probably), but I made a small patch demonstrating the issues, hope it helps ... see attachment (best listened with headphones).

Oh, and Embarassed forgive me my impoliteness: welcome

Thanks for the intriguing reply. I've noticed that you're not quite the "four on the floor" kinda guy Laughing

I look forward to checking out your patch after work!

Don't know so much about the meaning of life but someone said that, you can measure a man's success by how many toys he has. Now if that isn't an excuse to keep buying kit I don't know what it is. Smile Also I think in the realms of toys the Nord Mod is a kin to Transformers or maybe Lego.. which were my two favourite toys. Never had Mecano but lusted after that too.

Greetings Lefev.

Smile

Yeah, toys are surely addictive. After years of happily honing interpretations of music on the classical guitar, I suddenly got the urge to pursue the path I had left off in my college electronic music course. I remember discovering some ghosts in the machine there (a DX7 w/ Unisyn? software) when using s&h lfos and some random triggers. Loads of fun.

I stumbled on Nord modulars accidentally- I was searching for a cheap flamenco guitar on Craig's List (has this travelled across the pond?) and came upon a micro modular for $200. After getting into that for a year or so, I was increasingly unhappy w/ the Mac editor. This pulled me into the synth world. I sold the micro, bought a Kawai K5000 (very cool synth for those ghosts, ya know), but sold it later, and then a Virus TI Keyboard (selling, great sound but not too interesting to me), and now the engine. To the dismay of my wife, I purchased a G2X before selling the virus (on its way), but that virus is plenty popular for resale.

Serious toy for sure, this G2!
