  1. I was wrong that days, I had badly thought that 8 audio tracks will not be enough This device is absolutely awesome! Doing some lo fi psychedelic midtempo on it:
  2. I was always jealous of my colleges having impressive amounts of layers. Now I don't care, if maximum sixteen sounds good, why should I force myself to have 32+?
  3. It could be a small chance for the beginners like me that are not connected with any label to show myself to the world. I am into it!
  4. check it, complete Artemis storyline, learn glyphs, learn how to use portal and we will be able to make a meeting somewhere there
  5. Live from the Uroczysko Festival based in southwestern Poland
  6. anyway, after one year from game release No Man's Sky get 1.31 patch called Atlas Rises. check this out, because it is awesome: https://youtu.be/5328iuzHw-w
  7. you are doing everything right, there is something wrong with the page. if you will remove 's' from https:// in browser and not change rest of the address the videos from youtube will be visible. you might be also interested in this game, it's called Everything and you can be everything there: from bacterias to entire galaxy, and you can flow free through the levels of reality. You can also hear what different things want to tell you, or listen Allan Watts quotes hidden everywhere. Have fun, and remember to remove 's'
  8. couple of my photos here: https://johnnymandrake.imgur.com/all/
  9. yes, after Foundation update you can build bases on the planets (exactly: colonize small existing one and build buildings, make side quests, start farming etc). after Path Finder update you can also have the exocrafts, buy/repair another ships and collect (and after that you can use them depends on purpose you wish). They are updating the game and it's started to be even more fun than only exploration. We are all waiting for the next update!
  10. I saw it once for a while. I thought it will impress me more And also I think that personally for me I need two or three Octatracks to perform live acts as I want
  11. check the S8 controller promo video: (remove the 's' from https in the browser to see the video)
  12. you are going to buy full track, but it is divided in four stem files (for example: drums, ambient, vocal, leads). you can download free program to create this kind of files here: http://www.stems-music.com/stem-creator-tool/ I did it once with my track, just to try (it's created by NI and compatible with Traktor), it's real fun, but unfortunately there is no psychill tracks created in this format but I think it give huge posibilities in remixing! wish to have psychill tracks in this format to play sets. I think Rinkadink play his own track in this format with two D2 traktor controllers.
  13. Beautiful mapping and video done by Vortex Virtual Division on Decodethecode's complex string art mandala with my music
  14. It depends, sometimes I am using internal sequencer, sometime I am mixing arpeggio from two devices and record the midi pattern in DAW to produce complex layers. I am also using a lot of midi sequnecers from Reaktor to record midi. For arpeggios check this out: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/reaktor-community/reaktor-user-library/entry/show/11057/
  15. I am using Maschine in couple of different ways: - to trigger and manipulate audio loops and one shots - to trigger prepared before midi sequences and send them to external synthesizers and vst - to record midi sequences during performance and send them to external synthesizers and vst - as a multi effect for the external synthesizers So: I am preparing loops in track groups to mix them live on stage (usually around 128 loops for 1 h 30 minutes material), during performance I am adding sounds synthesized on Monotribe (using it's own sequencer), Mininova (sending midi from Maschine) and Binaural Beat Generator to give more "live act" experience and all the happy little random accidents. The way I play is constantly evolving, so next year it will be definitely more complex I would like to have one more synthesizer to the set up, it would be perfect to have Erebus, Dark Energy or Mother-32. I am against pre recording whole performance, I'd rather prefer some addition of improvisation including some mistakes sometimes if happened.
  16. that's my stuff for the live performances Maschine, Mininova, Monotribe and Binaural Beat Generator. normally I am playing or dj set or my own material, but I really would like to create some hybrid set including remixed set + my own loops/effects over it. but still does not have time to prepare it
  17. Some chillout, lounge-like track from me. I am into really calm stuff right now, maybe because though time at work: https://soundcloud.com/johnny_mandrake/between-them have fun and feel free to comment!
  18. Musical Fungus improvisation on Terrence McKenna speech:
  19. anybody interested in modular ambient/downtempo? personally I am more and more and more into... in the nearest future I am going to build my own rack case and after that I will begin to collect modules. first I think to get Mutable Instruments Clouds and some lfo's for modulation, I will use it as an granural effect for the rest of my stuff and after that I will get some oscillators, envelopes, vca and others I'm in love with this.
  20. Working on couple on a new a bit minimalistic tracks, searchin' for the good vocal samples to cut and struggle with the limiters and compressors to get the best quality sound for my live projects... so normal stuff
