Hey @quip, welcome back! Thanks for sharing. Don't you find it's a pain organizing / sets with hardware? Stressful is something dies?

Hi There! Yes its stressful. It is a bit like playing in a band where you don't have anything to fall back on if it dies. But I am not too hard on myself and have gone back to doing it after a long break. I really want to hone the set down to just a few boxes and am hoping to start a modular and replace the 707 with something a bit more flexible. I actually like writing music this way and have my live setup at home connected into the studio. I like the workflow of hardware and thinking abstractly as opposed to the logic of computers...

How do you keep from noodling endlessly? Do you rehearse a lot beforehand and make sure to "hit" structural points or do you just let it flow? Crunchy vibe.

I guest what I usually do is jam out to find the different structures points. That might be a synth preset or pattern on the drum machine. So they all sit right. Theres a bit of toing and froing where i find the sweet spot. The nord can squeal alot so theres always some taming of that ;-). Then do a few notes (mental or written). I jam alot with a drummer in an ambient band (Ill stick that up to) and so you get used to hitting the points. Saying that the last set I did things just went quite mad and I gave up trying to hit alot of points and improvised more than i thought i would. I think thats the nice thing about the setup - that you can improvise heavily and it still sounds ok...
