Been away for a while, guess it's time for a new #introductions post!

Hi, I'm Gaeel, I live in the north of France with my boyfriend and two cats. I wrestle every day with my ADHD brain, making it write code for a living.
These days I play a bunch of TTRPGs, GMing and playing Lancer, and also playing D&D5E.

I like sci-fi, people, and food.
I like music that goes hard.
I like music that chills me out.
I like finding new things to nerd out about.
I like Formula One.

I'm using microblog.pub for this little fediverse home. If you're looking for a tiny, lightweight, single-user fediverse thing that's only a little bit unstable, I highly recommend it.

Come say hi!

mi toki kin toki pona, o kama toki tawa mi, a!

long - thoughts on my setup so far

I got a 104hp 4U rack from Modulaire Maritime, and I intend for that to be the entirety of my system. I'm inspired by some of the smaller systems that people like Ricky Tinez and Mylar Melodies have shown off. Aiming for something with a little bit of playful generativity, focused on something that is relatively playable and prone to happy accidents.

This jam is after I figured out how to have the Bastl Kastle, uO_C and Pocket Operator all running on the same clock.
The uO_C is great for me, small footprint and lots of ways to produce lovely sequences that play really nicely with the Antumbra Knit.
The Knit, an MI Plaits clone, I feel is a great little system starter module, since you can get so much out of it with very little else attached. No need for EGs, filters or VCAs to get a nice, playable voice. I might swap it out later when I try to find a more personal sound.
And the QU-Bit RT60 is a great end of chain effects unit. I love the sound of its reverbs. I kind of wish the delay was clockable, but other than that, I feel like it's going to stay in this rack for a while.
Modulaire Maritime also make the Victor Alpha mixer. Four mono channels that can be panned L<->R, making it perfect for the setup I have right now.

I've got the Kastle outputting its internal LFO as a clock to the uO_C, which forwards the clock to the Pocket Operator. That way they're all playing in sync. The uO_C is sequencing the Knit, which is playing through the RT60.
This setup is quite jammable, and I'm happy to have something so fun to play around with with so few modules. I have a Stages and a Buff Mult 1U on the way, because I'd like a little more modulation, flexibility and hands-on control. After that I think I'll explore the space I've built myself until I figure out what the system really needs next.
I have quite a few modules I'm eyeing out already, and have built so many theoretical systems on Modular Grid it's not even funny any more, but seeing how much can be done with so little, I feel like I'm going to enjoy my modular journey!
