You guys are too funny, i think you've been fantasizing too long about transistors..
Why turn a perfectly valid post into a joke?
If you feel it is below you to program in popular patterns for analysis or god forbid it "fun" why are you even bothering?
i know i get a buzz loading up higher state and playing around. do you not get it?
i'm not a noob, ive been writing electronic music for 20 years, i have a large collection of vintage and modern synths including two 303's.
I STILL get satisfaction from taking other peoples work apart and adapting, this is the way with music, adapting what has gone before, making it your own, sure you can be totally original and esoteric and MAYBE you stumble across a gem, but both approaches are valid.
Also as a new user to this site, i was only trying to put back in some useful information as i have taken lots from here, during the construction of my X0X, why dilute a post with meaningless drivel? (oops is that what i'm doing?)
