Akemie's and Dinky's have nothing to do with one another except ALM called them both "Taiko" for some reason. Akemie's is less a drum module than an FM voice whereas Dinky's is certainly a drum module and makes my favorite eurorack kick drums (so far). To conclude, yes to both!

Yeah they’re a minor bitch, I could get one from Analogue Haven but I’m trying to wait for a sale to pop up or maybe score a second hand one. I did pick up a Ataraxic Iteritas second hand yesterday just because it was priced low. It might be funny but as expensive as eurorack is, I’m still always looking to save $20 here or there. I think I overcome my impulse control against blowing $300 by focusing on the saving $20 part, haha.

lol. right? THEY SHOULD DO ANOTHER RUN. I WOULD LIKE THEM TO DO ANOTHER RUN.

Barny - lol. see? i'm the opposite. since you can use a 10% of on most any site all the time for new shizz, i justify my purchases by Oh It's Usually Four Hundy But It's Forty Buckaroos Less GIMME.

hurm. although. i would WAY rather pay buy direct from a modular company. like i think it ended up about eighty or a hundy to buy that Metron from WMD direct compared to waiting till they were in at DetMod, but...

01) get it shipped wayyyyyy quicker

02) the profit margin for WMD has to SIGNIFICANTLY better?

also, loving the DFAM, but as neat as the Mother 32 is, i have zero need for it in my setup. took it on a larrrrrrrk.

listing it for $350 (has a few tiny scratches on the panel), anyone wants one, hit me up, i gp cheaper for bud buds.

I meant I use savings to justify spending, I’m the same as you. In fact it gets worse because then I look at that $40 savings as free money that came from the sky and I blow it on lunch. But yeah on that note I can usually figure out some code that works at Perfect Circuit or Detroit Modular. However, the dealers for Mannequins modules: ctrl-mod, Control Voltage, Analogue Haven, afaik unless they are running an advertised sale you are boned. I’ve even politely begged via email for discounts with ctrl-mod and Control Voltage in times past and been politely turned down and told to wait for a sale. But that’s ok,

Speaking of Mannequins, I'm thinking of picking up a JUST FRIENDS because it doesn't make any goddamn sense what the fuckin' thing is supposed to be / do.

oh man. it's a tossup between 3 Sisters and Just Friends for which i adore more. JF is amazebutts as an odd linked LFO thing. but i loooooove her as an osc. so sexy. kinda want a second JF again.

really dig the DFAM, but so freaking big. back in it's case, set up that drum synthesis case as this last night -

it's FUN.

Rad. What's that RDT thing?

I think I'm going to hit the Just Friends because haven't bought a new module in a while and could stand to shake shit up. Except I just purchased a new module right now called Rung Divisions which is the guts of a Benjolin without the oscs or filter. Roll your own benjo, meng - stoked.


Aaaaaaaand missed my chance to nab the Just Friends deal. I am... patient.

dooood been SUPER curious about the Rungs. SPEAK ON IT WHEN IT ARRIVES.

RDT Thing Thing is an awesome wonky logic thing for gates. tempo slave'able, spits nasty rhythmic goodness.

got it from someone on here? lol. i don't TOTALLY understand what it's doing, but i can wrangle happiness from it?

and really. isn't that the best we can hope for? in life? in love? in MODULES?

I have less and less time in the PC/instruments room these days (kids are cute little time-eaters) and I've found out that I would actually not mind having a smaller system than my 7u/84HP. I could live with a small Teletype + feedback based system...

Anyway, in case you're not all aware : there are some excellent documentations being made for the Mannequins modules.
Mangrove, Just Friends and Cold Mac already out. Really, really good technical writing, clear and full of inspiration. And pretty images.

This case looks super-dope! So many sweet drum modules @ hi-density. I'll have to look into what the Metron does. I'm pretty committed to the Trigger Riot / Amoeba combo but wouldn't mind having an x0x-style sequencer in modular at some point to bring me back to the halcyon days of my youth when the Elektron Machinedrum was my 1 and only.

Here is where I'm at currently for a drums / bass / noise groove box monster --- so... much... space... My next goal is to incorporate some prettier textural elements. Not sure if Morphagene or Just Friends or what. Will continue to pore over tomes of modular lore.
