Friends of Mod

Thought it might be nice to start a thread, where we can share our other machines, that play well with our Mod devices.

As well as using my MDX as a send effect, I’m also using it with Norns Shield. This combo is really nice and compliments each other really well.

The microgranny is another great pairing, particularly with a crazy reverb chain.

One thing that I’m getting a lot of joy from, is using the octatrack to send midi to the mod, to control a synth, and then routing the audio back into the octatrack for more mangling.

Akai MPK mini works very good!
Also mentioned in the midi controller wiki page
https://wiki.moddevices.com/wiki/MIDI_Controllers_tested_by_the_community
Maybe this thread could be used to add more to this wiki page? :upside_down_face:

Also this could go in that thread:

I’ve been using the Keith mcmillen K-Board. I was lucky enough to grab one for £15 in ebay a while back and its a great partner for the MDX.

The MPK has pads as well, doesn’t it?

Yes 2x4 triggerpads and 8 poties
It’s very practical due to its small measures and useability.

Great suggestion! There’s this topic of tested MIDI controllers that needs some care soon.
On the side of synth and other non MIDI controller devices, maybe we need to start something different. Not sure exactly what. Maybe if you guys prepare some short tutorials we can list it and add them to our wiki. What do you think?

I manage all the synths of the DUO and DUO X (as well as most of my other synths) with the MPC One. I haven’t tried the CV out but with MIDI works great. MPC One is really a wonderful machine, for the price.

That’s a really nice and compact way of getting a lot of functionality out of a small set up.

Ironically I actually sold my mpc one, to grab the MDX :joy:

But yes, great machine. Definitely best seen as it’s own thing instead of bei g the ‘baby’ of the current line up. There’s so much more difference between the one and the live, that you could consider them at equal standing.
I have too many samplers, otherwise it would’ve stayed
