Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

welcome new guys.

@Seamus - Office attire - very formal   fine head adornments you are sporting... reminds me of a sheep skull we found in the mountains - my kid brought it home and named it "Rambone"

Thanks.
Pretty much nobody would ever believe that I'm on anyone's "nice list", so I just went ahead and made myself a Krampus hat for the holiday season.

The horns are actually 3D printed, with a microcontroller and smart LED strips inside, to make them glow in various patterns for a bit of fun at Krampusnacht parades and the like.
[Insert clever signature here]

A little bit older ;-) But somehow I still look like this...
I do come from a musical background (if that picture might not show that ;-) )
I still use a c-64 from time to time to do music - started programming in basic on that and then later on an Amiga 500... love that I now can continue on a CMM2 ! Thanks for this wonderful machine and this forum ! Learned a lot already ! Cheers TweakerRay

@TweakerRay, is that a MiniBrute or a MicroBrute you are cradling so lovingly?

I picked up a first-gen MiniBrute on eBay about a year ago, and love it! It looks and sounds awesome, the build quality is fantastic for the price, and is a great “first synth” for anyone (like me...) looking to learn analog techniques. Also “retro synth” related, I picked up an FB-01, with an idea to create hybrid analog / FM sounds via MIDI. Haven’t gotten around to it yet - maybe this winter :)

Another thing I’ve been fascinated and playing with lately is VCV, an open-source Eurorack simulator. Mind-blowing that you can get this amazing stuff for free - we are definitely living in the best of all possible worlds!

P.S. Just listened to “Guardian Theme” - both the Full Blast and 8-bit versions are awesome !!

:-) Yes it is the minibrute. One of my first synths which started a collection-addiction. I now own a few rarities of synths like a moog voyager, a buchla musiceasel and a polivoks and some more ;-) But the minibrute has a special place in my heart. I also had a microbrute once, but the minibrute has a more rough sound also was the noise missing on the micro. I just looked up the FB-01 ;-) Nice like my DX-7 which I used when I was on tour once with Hanin Elias (Ex-Atari Teenage Riot) I find the FM-Synthesis a little bit hard to understand (though I like the FM-8 Softsynth by Native Instruments) Editing patches on a small display is not really fun for me.
Yep - I knew the VCV and yes we live in a cool technological time. Thank you very much for the kind words - If you enjoy my stuff please check out more either at my mainpage: www.tweakerray.de or of course at my bandcamp page ( http://tweakerray.bandcamp.com ) - A lot to discover ;-)

Hi All... here is my pic... and little bit of my computer history.

My first adventure into computers was to build a Dick Smith Super-80 (what Ozzies remember those?) way back in the day. I learned the basics of soldering and Basic programming and z80 machine code on this. Then followed Amstrad CPC and then Atari ST and Falcon. I did some Basic programming on all these systems. After the 16 bits were dead I switched to PC, and stopped programming at the same time. Since retirement I've started using Emulators for the STs and CPCs and fiddled with Basic and z80 machine code again but I wanted better/faster results. The CMM2 was a godsend to me - at last something modern that I could programme with only a few headaches. At last something to make me think a bit deeper than I usually have to.
