INcoming synth: Yamaha Reface CS

Post: # 1381493Post daftsupernova »

Got paid for a housesitting job, decided to finally treat myself to a synth. i'd been looking at this one for a while and i enjoyed the sounds it makes, so i figured eh fuck it why not, it also works as a MIDI keyboard controller so I could plug it into the computer and control some soft synths that way too. Or even OTHER synths, like the Korg Volca line, which was my second thought.

Nice, enjoy! The Refaces (and the Volcas) were on my radar for awhile, I ended up getting a couple of Roland Boutique modules and forgot about them (which is not to compare those series, I just have a finite budget set aside in general when it comes to instruments I barely play).

I was considering a Volca for a while, but then I found out about the Reface and decided that was going to be my first dip into the synth world. After this, I might dip into the Volca line as well for the compact nature, and the fact that they have sequencers and can be controlled by external keyboards (and hey! the Reface has that capability, time to plug into a Volca). Oh, and the Reface YC, I absolutely need to have a portable organ like that. The question is, which direction do I head first after this.... perhaps the Beats, and then I can make some cold darkwave beats.

Anyways, tracking was updated, it'll be in my hands by Friday.

Oooh, I was looking at a Reface CP a few weeks ago, namely because of this video:

It's a lovely little aesthetically-pleasing bit of a kit, but ultimately decided against it as I've got a DAW and a midi controller and access to THE WORLD of VST/AU plugins

But doog, if you bought the Reface, you'd have a tiny electric piano AND a midi controller. you could've been unstoppable :/

since i've run low on space in my other soundcloud accounts, i've gone ahead and made a new email and new soundcloud, here's a couple of short tracks i've made while playing with the synth's looper
