a guy I know who is completely not me is in the early stages of rebuilding his basement Ye Olde Technoe Labbe and asked me for help so I am DEMANDING YOUR ADVICE ON HIS BEHALF also it's not me I swear

he says he has the six foot wide big desk sorted out, he says all the most adventurous plastic surgeons have a "saddle swopper" to sit on (whatever that means), so he just needs to know what to put on the table to make the most noise possible. From what I can gather this guy wants to make outsider music covers of B-sides, doing sprechtgesang into a cheap microphone, over layers upon layers of oscillating machinery and bump boom tissh etcetera.

I've been told the Moog Grandma (?) and a theremin are done deals, and apparently he inherited a MicroBrute from his aunt. Nothing about this makes sense! Make it make more or less sense. I am DEMANDING YOUR ADVICE ON HIS BEHALF.

Digitakt for sampling?

I want one of the new Akai Force machines but they're going to be $1500 or something

Digitakt is a good idea. 0-Coast would expand the possibilities of the Grandmother and Microbrute I guess.

Obviously if it was me, I would say so, but it’s this other guy, because if his midlife crisis big basement fartspace dreams go south and turn into the noise dude equivalent of the “project car” taking up space in the garage despite being too precious and/or broken down to actually drive, then it is his very real and not imaginary fault, and I’m just an intermediary trying to pass along some good advice.

i applaud your creative endeavor from my own basement fartspace practice space :)

I applaud both your creative endeavours from my own basement corner of a bedroom.

what online merchants of noise should this dude get his stuff from? I tried to go over to his house the other day to return a socket wrench and he mentioned that Jeff Bezos and B&H Photo Video are going to cause the end of civilization, so some sort of ethically acceptable alternatives are needed.

and by "tried to" I mean I got halfway up the stairs to his door before he leaned on the 2nd floor window and hollered at the neighborhood that "Jeff Bezos and B&H Photo Video are going to cause the end of civilization!!!" and I figured you know, this guy can get his socket wrench back some other day this week

Perfect Circuit and Analogue Haven. I've never had problems with either.

Seconding Perfect Circuit

fundamental stupid question, is this the optimal signal chain:

1. plug machines into mixer, 2. mixer into USB interface, 3. USB interface 3a. to monitors and 3b. to/from computer? 4. Use USB I/O headphone jack, 4a. get an A/B switch for second set of monitors?

I don't have one myself, so can't say how good it is, but the hapiNES (and forthcoming Large version) seem like something your friend would like.

The Drone Thing and Blackfly Swarm might help your friend with some of his tone generation and the KomaElektronik Field Kit and Field Kit FX could prove useful for him.

The MWFX Judder and Glitch pedals, if he's able to find them, will provide him with hours of joy.
