I just started to experiment with the possibilities with this remarkable machine, Wow!
The Machine Input module is just sweet, I use it a lot for processing drum machines differently through one mixer channel (filter on one drum and delay on another for example).
What is your favorite processing method?
Yes, Machine Input module open the door for some cool and/or crazy things.
I also use it for drums processing, but not only. Here you can find some Modular presets for Machine Input (and other goodies).
When I use Caustic live, I can't change my midi channel on the fly, and Caustic is running in background. So I use one modular with many machines connected in machine inputs, and made it work by midi learn with my controller, so I can have any machine channel (with Eq and FX) or blended machines in the same audio and midi channel. Sort of layered Caustic expander...
Thanks for the presets, I'll check em out and see what other moduleists have come up with. :)
That sounds interesting, I use it in a similar way, although I've programmed my MIDI controller to have one channel per strip to match the layout of Caustic. Very neat.
When playing live, what other instruments du you use?
Try this little chain for fun:
Have fun with this....
Korg gadget and sometimes the iMPC pro, both on iPad. I gave up using Tabletop, too buggy...
Caustic is used for sampled ethnic instruments that I made, and some pads and solo layered sounds. The main sequencer is Gadget, since it allows me to chain patterns and sections on the fly ala Ableton Live.
All of your experience live is good two know for me in future. Just makinv a mental note on this thread by u mr. Skarabee my apologies.
Ah ok all software then? I like to use Caustic mainly as a drum machine and sync with my hardware gear. The PCM and Modular is currently the two things I use the most.
I'd love to have have loop slot selection via MIDI tho. :)
Thanks for the tips guys! :D
