My first shock with trash 2 Was the way it transforms any sample into something really interesting. I'm a drum and bass producer and what i get Trash 2 is Immediate punchy drums and heavy distorted bass (just what i need!), trash 2 bings a unique character to the mix. And i can't wait to to get the full versión of it!.

As I was moving house one time in the past, the former tennant left a lot of junk outside the house in the yard. As I waded through all that crap I came across a Swedish Magnus Fan Organ. Quickly I headed inside to plug it in. Lo and behold it worked, sounded fantastic and still is one of my prized instruments. Also my name is Magnus as well!!

Trash 2 is good. I am also using Fabfilter Saturn quite a bit these days.

You guys were talking about setting up a modular synth via a web site. This could totally be doable. I'd highly recommend Expert Sleepers Silent Way, but Volta might work similarly like this. You can patch in and out both cv and audio. It could be set up to look like anything, even like a virtual modular that you could patch in and out of each other one. It would take one channel per audio or cv channel, so you'd have to have tons of channels on the audio interface in order to do Dave's dotcom modular. The crazy thing is you can do things like analyze some of the various audio tracks and do something like send out the levels of an audio input out as a cv control, and the whole thing could be synced to a drum track or anything else. So, even better than a huge modular hardware by itself.

I've been using Silent Way mostly to automate my Moogerfooger pedals using cv output from my audio interface. You can do some amazing things with these pedals this way that makes them completely different than using these pedals on their own.

I'd highly recommend interviewing Andrew about his software as I think a lot of people have not seen how much you can do with this software. Bonus is that it looks like he's in the Letchworth, UK, but not sure how close that is to any of you guys.

Yeah Silent Way would be a good interface to the modular stuff, particularly so if you patched a ton up to CV controlled parameters, I did review A Silent Way some time back and was mightily impressed with it.

The best thing I've found in the trash was an old broken 4" black and white tv when I was 13.i brought it home, cracked it open, and got it working again. A year lat, I cracked it open again and did some circuit bending before that term was popular, and wired in a 1/4" jack to run my guitar through the audio path. It made a mean transistorized distortion. The fuzz that came out of that thing could rip your face off. Having no amp and being an inventive kid, I wired my car stereo with a line in. I hooked my modded B&w tv distortion unit into the steo and would wail away on my squire Strat. When I got tired of practicing, I'd watch something on it's 4 inch screen.

Whoops! Double post above. I guess that's what I get for using my mobile browser over 3G. Also wanted to leave my correct email address in the details just in case my black and white TV comment wins.

Great show! I've been an avid listener since the beginning. I feel like you guys have become a weekly part of my life!
