Not necessarily a suggestions, but I would be very curious to see some raggae/dub production with in-depth exploration of the dub pre-amp, the siren, the tubby filters, the springs, the tape :)
There's a bit of that in this: https://youtu.be/d4zmNxCQVUY

Are there any videos with Wavemaster? Feel like getting a new synth, but can’t justify amalgam. SineSynth looks intimidating haha.
I just realized that the video of WaveMaster is all laggy, sound seem ok but picture does now flow nicely. So I need to stay on 1920X1080 resolution in the future..

Already wanted to tell you via Twitch that it´s lagging, then I thought it was just the stream, not the actual recording. Btw do you use twitch merely for recording? Saying do you aswell interactively stream?

Yes, I just record so i didnt see your chat messade until after and then it wasn’t possible to reply 😄..
I think I’ll keep a window open on the screen in the future, seem like a good idea!

Went for Preamp Sirene Bundle along Indstrlzr and Sadist. Still eyeballing TapeEchoMKII and maybe MBEQ. The latter being more of a special purpose one from my trialing experience, so maybe I´ll save it for someday due to financial reasons. TapeEcho because it´s simply a very smooth sounding echo machine so to speak (+ a spring reverb :clap: )

Anyway, thank you for the sale´s offer for quality devices. Doing a lot regarding improvement in sound here. :thumbs_up:

So nice to hear!
If you like dub you might want to check out HP1012 (frequencies inspired by King Tubbys “big knob”) or the HBL313 multi filter (not the same frequencies but very nice and smooth filter..!)

While I like Dub quite a lot I´m rarely creating Dub tracks. Then I´m mostly into electronic music making and personally went from listening (aswell) to Dub to electronic music in general via Ambient/TripHop mid nineties. The transition happened quite easily because that´s where both genres overlap and transition into each other the most I find.
Like on this "incursions in illbient" compilation from 1996 on Asphodel where Ambient, spaced out Dub and Triphop mix. The Asphodel label basically being one representation of this particular musical evolution at that point. Personally, I feel DJ Spooky (aswell on that compilation) being quite a representative of that mixture here though he´s often leaning a little more towards the Ambient/Triphop area with integrated Dub elements besides his more deep/drone ambient related stuff.



Saying besides everything being closely related anway, I like integrating dubbie styles, chords + effects in electronic music.
Then I find your devices very well suited for electronic music overall, like using Dub Preamp on straight Techno for example. While they might originally be intended for the dubbie side of things they also work very well in that area. Love the sonic colouring and shaping of many of your RE, like I find, altering the sound for the better, reason I went for quite a few by now (already including HPLP 1224). Most likely gonna go for the utility bundle eventually because next to the filter I like the comp/limiter + EQ aswell.
And then there is aswell the synth + drum synth bundle, TapeFunk and some I haven´t even checked out :-D Yet not enough credits here for now :-)

Yes, I very much like Asphodel in general and got that specific record along others (especially DJ Spooky) here aswell :-)

Regarding the HP1224 I just got I was wondering wether it would be possible implementing a cut-off frequency emphasis setting like AUTO X Compressor´s cross-over emphasis + depth in the easter egg section. From what I understand it´s basically what the peak settings are already for, then it would be pleasant to adjust it beyond those settings with a trimmer for HP + LP for more extrem filter attacks when wiggling.

I was saving my trials for Black Friday week. Once I saw the 50% sale I quickly tried Filter Chain, Sadist and TapeEcho. After trying them for a few minutes each, I knew I would be buying them. They sound (and look) great! So happy to have these in my rack now. Thanks for the sale Erik!

Gotta say thanks to Eric for putting out a bunch of (lengthy) videos jamming with some devices. I. didn't want to blow all my one time trials on one sale, so videos are a godsend.

I weirdly tried out SADIST but found it wasn't for me, so i ended up just grabbing TapeEcho and the Dub Preamp + Siren bundle. (why are the adjustment controls on the back so tiny though? :twisted: )

The PTF bundle was very tempting, as I really dig the more smooth sound of the FX3180 spring, but I already have Spacexpander, and again, strangely Tapefunk just didn't did it for me for whatever reason.

It's good at adding beef. Not all material needs beef, though. The key there is in balancing the input and output balance. A link button wouldn't hurt there, but the parameters are exposed properly, so you can remote control those with 2 knobs and twiddle them simultaneously.

Sadist not for you? You must be some kind of self-inflicting sadist or something.

I like the fact you can click one of the screws on the Dub amp and siren and it changes the text from black to white. Small easter egg, but was fun to discover. Erik, I image this was just because you couldn't decide on what colour to make it? haha. I prefer the default white.
