…But other than that Mrs. Lincoln…

So. I could talk about it, but I’m not going to. You’ve probaby heard enough about it and, like me, could use a little break. So lets talk about something else.

Now that I am, like many of you, living in a state-imposed social distancing exercise, I thought it would be time to get back to that internet streaming thing I did way back that was so fun and even somewhat successful. What form this will take or what service I’ll use I’m not sure yet. Twitch maybe? Everyone talks about twitch…

The first question to be answered will be the choice of tools. I’ll almost definitely be using the Korg Wavestate and recently reacquired Sequential Pro 2 . I should really pick only one of either the Akai MPC One or Force….but that’s a damn hard choice for a number of reasons (evidenced by my still having both despite their obvious overlap). The modular will be there…and the Axe FX.

For this exercise, I’m going to need some sounds. I put out a call on facebook, but didn’t get much. I might go running around the house tonight making (quiet) noises into my field recorder and go with that. Or maybe I should get back to my roots and lift every sound effect out of a classic Sci-Fi movie. So many choices.

Because they say you should involve your audience to drive engagement, here is a list of the gear I could use. Which one would you most like to hear:

  • Korg Wavestate
  • DSI Pro2
  • Korg Prophecy
  • DSI PolyEvolver
  • Akai Force
  • Akai MPC One
  • Roland TR-8s
  • Waldorf Blofeld
  • Behringer DeepMind 12

If I knew how to create a poll, I’d do that…but I don’t. So put your suggestions in the comments.
