from this Four Tet interview: "Everybody I know that buys modular synths stops putting records out essentially (laughs). That’s the situation. Because it takes a week to get a sound out of it."
totally feel this even though i've been in love with the sound of my non-modular little analog synth.

Based on what I've heard of Four Tet, perhaps he should get a modular...

Did you get that Make Noise Shared System?

I did! Haven't released a record since.
Love it to pieces for real tho. I spend a few hours almost every night. They're not cheap (before you even consider GAS – the gear acquisition syndrome it causes) but for me has been worth every penny.

hows that mn shared system, still have it?

this looks/sounds cool - http://tiptopaudio.com/tg-one/

i know this is the wrong thread for this, but from the description of the ONE module:
Working with long time beta-tester Chris Carter, the Tiptop R&D tweaked the ONE firmware creating two new modes: the first a random file selection on each trigger input; and the second, looping playback that randomly seeks in a sound file with each trigger. Both of these functions take TG ONE into new sonic territory.
does anyone of a similar piece of equipment that could trigger video clips? i've slowly been teaching myself python/linux/raspberryPi to try to do it myself, but i am awful and kind of wish i could just buy what i'm trying to make.

isn't max/msp the go-to for that
― am0n, Thursday, 16 November 2017 17:50 (three years ago) link
or max/jitter: https://docs.cycling74.com/max7/tutorials/jitindex

yeah, i keep dreading it because i haven't dived into max/msp before. i should just take the plunge. but also, at the end, i want something that doesn't have a cord connected to an open laptop. i just want a display and a cord to a much smaller device, non-laptop.
sorry to bring it up here, i probably just need to invest some serious time googling all this shit
― Karl Malone, Thursday, 16 November 2017 17:54 (three years ago) link
like, ideally i could something like max/jitter running on a discreet tiny raspberry pi, but i don't think little guy is powerful enough to run it

not sure this fits yr bill but more on topic is there are modular video things popping up but some of it seems more about shapes and colorshttps://www.lzxindustries.net/http://www.jonesvideo.com/
this looks like it played video clips but no longer in productionhttps://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=133640

yeah, i'm realizing video synth is probably the wrong path to head down. i probably just need something like either max/msp or pure data+processing. really i'm just looking for a way to automatically trigger video clips based off of sensors. i actually made a good deal of progress on this over in the raspberry pi thread a few months back, and then i hit a weird bug that i couldn't fix after several hours, and then i compleeeetely dropped the whole thing. now i'm trying to crawl my way back.

nice, 2nd one sounds like raymond scott! considering the b&g one w/ morphagene/verb
― am0n, Friday, 17 November 2017 05:02 (three years ago) link
Thanks, first one is running some samples of my Midimini Moog clone through the Phonogene, the precursor to the Morphogene. It’s an incredible machine. I keep finding new ways to use it in my (ever expanding) setup. The black and gold edition is a little more advanced than what I have (it has the bus, the ErbeVerb and three or four redesigned modules) but seems great as well.
