Actually I am having trouble trying to decide what I find more fascinating: AMS or that dudes list of things he doesn't like.
At least AMS comes with a manual.
Lectric Panda’s manuals are usually very good. But would love to see a detailed video demo for this one. Can we get ReasonExperts out of retirement for an AMS video series? He’s a bit of a douche but he did make some pretty good Reason device videos. His output was prolific. Then it sort of went off the rails a bit! Shame.

That one REALLY stuck out for me as well. Sounds like a Boards of Canada interlude. Gorgeous.
Have you head of an artist that goes by the name “1991" ?
He is responsible for two albums (high tech life/no more dreams; I only like a few songs on the third one) that I can’t get enough of. I would really like to figure out a way to get closer to that deceptively simple feel/sound.

Going to check it out. I've been digging https://cult48.bandcamp.com/ lately for that BoC sound.

Here's my contribution.. A Combinator with AMS, Europa and an RV7000 to make it a bit more human-like. This was created in Reason 12, but I've attached a separate file for anyone using Reason 11 called "AMS+Europa+RV7000-Reason11.cmb.zip".

I bought the High Tech Life album on cassette tape. Unfortunately my cassette deck died a few years ago. So I sold it as parts on eBay, sold the cassette on Discogs and bought the digital version. Very cool album. I’ve not listened to it for years. Will have to add it to phone again;

……. Home schooling with kids this week until Friday. I’m planning to hit TRY on AMS when they go home to Mum. With a view to buying because, well it’s Lectric Panda and it just looks nuts to me. Looking forward to trying some things with this. I’d like to split the output and send different parts to my modular. That should be interesting.

Some how I mutated your combi into this:



I also did this today:

Haha, that's awesome. I love how malleable these patches can be. Start with one set of parameters and then let the permutations begin! Nice job! :thumbup:

Thank you Lectric Panda, I've been looking for something like this for years. :thumbup: :clap:

Like a conventional instrument, I think it's going to take a long time to really master.

One feature request: being able to run independently of the transport, maybe like the sync options in PSQ-1684 - transport, tempo, free hz, free ms.

Don't know if anybody else has noticed but all the 'lists' can be a lot longer than what you see on the screen. Try clicking insert a few times and little arrows will appear next to the beginning and end of the list.

Now, where did I put those Schillinger tomes :geek:

I was curious just how many could be added and I gave up counting when I saw there were more than 4x the "pages."
A quicker way to get to page 4 for example would be nice, but I am much more interested in a practical update similar to a suggestion that was mentioned early on:
Have a gate/cv out for melody section and a separate gate/cv out for the accompaniment.
This would help me get more out of one instance, as I almost always have the melody section going to one instrument and the accompaniment section going to a different instrument.

I've had some amazing things come out of this RE, not just ambient music but here's an ambient piece 100% unmodified stream of music from the device.

I was playing with layering a bass with a melody playing in the opposite direction today (contrary motion):

I think it tops out at 256 list entries.. but filling all of them up that high drags the processing way down.

I'll be putting note/gate CV into this thing at some point.. the biggest challenge I need to address is the polyphonic aspect. It might just end up looking like CVPT on the back with one bank for the melody and one for the accomp.

One thing i thought of was a bass note to go with the sequence of notes, i don't know how hard this would be to generate.

I can tell you're having fun with this thing. Seems like an endless sea of melodic inspiration.
Would love to see a video of you talking about this RE. After everything you've posted here I think you're the right person for that. I know there's a manual for it. Skimmed throught it very briefly. Felt like a math equation. Very sciency and theoretical. Not something I'll be diving into anytime soon. :lol: (Exploring Europa and Grain is more than enough for me right now)
REs like this desperately need videos that highlight how to actually use it, from an artists/musicians perspective rather than a mathematicians perspective. How does one get the most out of it in the quickest way possible? What are the most important things one needs to know to get results?
I sometimes feel like developers make the mistake of expecting their users to be as technically inclined as they are. What seems obvious to them might not be that obvious to someone looking at the thing for the first time. Could also simply be that the product is presented perfectly and I'm simply not the target audience for it. Luckily Panda devices have the randomize button so technical retards like myself can still get something out of them. I've abused the shit out of that Fritz randomize button ever since I bought it.

Would be awesome if you could provide an actual link to this alleged Trent Reznor quote. I had no idea that he was using Reason. Also, what is this "AMS" he is speaking of? Is he really talking about Aggregate??

One thing that I am having fun with. Have a block of of events and bouncing it into audio. Importing the sample in serato sample and playing chops. For those that have mimic it would be a good experiment to play with chops. You can find something interesting accident. Thank you Panda for another great rack extension.

Jokes aside, Trent did use Reason back in the day. Not sure if he still dabbles in it today.
