Zorlon Cannon mk2 incoming. :hyper: Random gates which can be combined into random CV, and Atari 2600-like noise. I've heard some demos where people build it into fantastic chord drones, and I think that's what sold me. Plus it's also another Harvestman odd-HP module and will fill the remaining space in my case completely (aside from what's reserved for E520). 8)

I'm going to plan not make any more changes to my modular from this point. If there are any small modules that I get really bad GAS for I could still swap out some lower priority things, but nothing out there right now is calling.

The Zorlon arrived. It's pretty fantastic. I just used it in a recording as:

- a psuedo-random CV sequencer, tuned to intervals of my choosing, which I used for pitch, through a comparator to trigger envelopes, and to be sampled by Marbles for more CV
- additional psuedo-random gates to trigger other stuff
- a bass voice (with Natural Gate)
- a plucky voice (with the other Natural Gate channel & Mimeophon)
- an Atari-esque noise source
- audio input & Structure modulation for Rings

...simultaneously. :band:

Picked up a Handsome Audio Zulu tape simulation machine.
Fair price, mint condition and quick shipping from London (but always a bit dicey paying three quarters of a grand for something when I'm currently trying to sort out furloughed pay and only have a couple of grand savings :scared: :D ).

It will go well with my Silver Bullet.
Dark Water Hardware Studio looking handsome now :party:

My Lyra-8 arrived on Thursday (next day delivery from Gear4music). I spent Thursday & Friday evenings getting to know it. What a fantastic, inspiring, synthesizer. Love it :D

I ordered a Komplete Kontrol M32 earlier. Really wanted that one. :)
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

let me know how it goes.
i think after almost 20 years it might be time for a new kbcontroller :hihi:
the direct integration with ni 0roducts would be good, its pretty much all im using in software these days anyway.

Yeah, I've been looking for a long time for good software integration of a MIDI controller, and, the NI one is as close as it gets to what I want (I absolutely detest AKAI VIP, for example). I also like the form factor, and that it has half a octave more as my former mini keyboard. :)

Bought a Roland FP-30 to help me with learning piano, the keybed is quite impressive for the price, not quite as good as my teachers Steinway (obviously) but it's a massive jump to help me progress from the Nektar T6 I was using to practice on

Was almost tempted to buy a refurbished Circuit Mono Station from Novation as they're on offer at the moment, but figured if I'm going to get a Peak or Summit eventually it'll be redundant as I don't want it for the sequencing side of things although some of the features are pretty cool. In the meantime I'm holding out on ebay for a decently priced AN1X to come up :love:
