I almost always am more interested in the sounds I make fucking with odd functions of sound making devices. What I like is NEVER a modulation destination. Like why would I modulate the pitch or cutoff with an lfo? I want to modulate some weird thing that creates a pop and does something weird to the filter.

Okay beatmakers try this out:

Woah, I haven't seen that software in awhile. I had that loaded on one of my old machines.

I don't really remember tbh. I installed it but didn't really use it because I had an Akai S5000 in my studio. Now that the S5000 has been decommissioned, I might need to revisit it. I've been using Ableton and Soundforge for my timestretch duties.

Totally. Only reason would be to have an lfo unquantized and doing hz instead of the usual 4/16s etc or a specific shaped sequence where you would then have to cut out and pick from instead.
Ofcourse there's env like adrs that can combined with rythm do something you couldn't do. But I know what you mean.

s'why I love massive ^

Lfo's have their own envelopes so you don't burn up your 4 envelopes. Can get mad.

Just a shame about the filter.

Been listening to some Funki Porchini the last couple of days. Did you guys ever get into him? How about 9Lazy9? I need to start sampling again.

yeah haha, I never ever filter in massive unless absolutely necessary.

I don't even have massive installed on my new production set up though: a self imposed thing.

I love the old head nodder type tunes. I know a lot of the beats scene these days prefers the unquantized, unfunky kind of sound, but I like my beats with some groove to them rather than be deliberately off. Is this a controversial opinion?

agreed, drums simply being off sounds like the producer's just trying to sound off, the groove is what makes it musical :i:
the groove on this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfs4n1CQ60g

mf korg volca sample

See the gear lust thread. So amazing for $145. SO AMAZING.

Other than that, SP 404 SX. There are other models, the sx if you want new, and sd card capabilities.

The Sample's sequencer is superior to the 404, imo. But the 404 is more robust, and by comparison has a clean sound. But if you listen to my tunes from like last year, and they sound fuzzy and fucked up and distorted, that is the 404.

Wait, wut? The beat scene is into unfunky beats?

I mean, I think the beat scene kind of went brostep with trap. But what was the beat scene was definitely funky, and unquantized. Very funky bass, usually.

This is just one off hand example of the beat scenes funk, which is dripping and undeniable:

Right now, I'm using the Sample, and the 404 is unplugged...

But for like banging out beats with your fingers, and fucking things up, 404 is king. Sample has a really fun sequencer, not limited like the 404 which requires microwaves, and the Sample can really mangle sounds, AND IN TIME, too.

Gonna post up a track, kind of Bach Acid on the 3's, V Sample and Bass.
