A couple of other details; thinking out loud. I was drawn to the elektron Analog Heat (it is now in its mk2 phase already), because I like the idea of having my sound pass through an analog path at the end. I figure it would also glue things together. But I can’t just pile up gear in a room. So one idea for the lunchbox is to maintain a stereo path throughout, so that if I do put it at the end, the character of the sound is preserved. I would probably then add some sort of stereo delay module.
When I start to think this way though I worry about not having any voices in the box. “Wheres the oscillator bro?” Uhhhhh…
But once you start thinking about oscillators you get diminishing hp quick, as you start to pretty much design a desktop synth.
*my brain just clued in to how amazing it will be to able to send multiple Audulus voices through the ES-8 (when the AUv3 goes live), or route a hardware oscillator through some of the modules in Audulus.
