the truth is, if you layer enough of anything thats randomly varying, it sounds like a string section

@jk string section, the other term for "acoustic randovari" patches

@Triplefox string section = acoustic randovari plural with sustain

@Triplefox acoustic randovari is a googlewhack!!

@jk Damn that sounds cool. Also nice music gloves

@jk are you. using a dx7 as a midi controller

@er1n yeah??? why are you saying that like im using a fish, or a central bank, or the moon, as a midi controller

@jk idk it just seems a bit. sacrilegious
this is a fuckinding great sound tho
please post samples lol

@er1n ?? i mean it was really common to use a DX7 as a master keyboard in the 80s and even later on, because it has a very good keybed

@er1n theyre exceptionally well made. all-metal chassis, nice design where you just unscrew 4 screws and the entire top opens on hinges so you can get to everything etc. and really fucking heavy, its heavier than every other keyboard i own, even the polysix/m1/wavestation etc. and im not really sure why

@amphetamine @er1n might be a bit impractical to post samples im afraid because every key on the keyboard is a 1GB sample which starts playing in a random position each time its played

@amphetamine @jk i want specifics!! write one of those blog things!!!

@er1n @jk blogs are cool but

heck

hanging out at josef's house amirite?

@jk wait, why dont we all use those talking fish animatronic things as midi controllers some how

@jk @er1n Please report back when the you publish the first song played on a central bank

@jk gonna make a low quality bootleg of these sounds tomorrow

the secret? : sample and hold

@jk
That sounds kinda great. (Sounds a little like mid-career Autechre)

@jk Some of my favorite music can best be described as "unconscionable"

@jk Oh it loops. How long have I been listening to this.

@jk Okay so I definitely listened to it for about 20 minutes? Good shit.
