Christian! Happy to have you back. You were missed
Not quite the same thing but I started this whole VST craziness as a way of helping me with my bass playing (that's my primary instrument) but I record that into my DAW. I also had the idea of buying a hardware synth (Behringer Neutron for the silly low price and good sound) but my experience with VSTs has left me as a post-recording tweaker. It's so easy to go back and tweak midi or re-record a part that being unable to do so feels a little unsettling.Do any of you ever record anything without a DAW? Tape? Dictaphone? Weird Tascam Thingy? Radar?
As a baby boomer, I grew up using some of that gear. I took a modular synthesis class in college; but back then it was simply called a synthesis class, as modular was the main form of synthesis at the time. It was difficult, in part because—as a piano player—I had no prior experience with music technology, other than using a mic, amplifier, and tape deck. I'd go through the effort of wiring things up on the ARP and sometimes get no sound at all. Then, I'd have to trace my signal path until I found my error. Ultimately however, it was a rewarding experience, because it was the first time I ever crafted my own timbres.Do any of you ever record anything without a DAW? Tape? Dictaphone? Weird Tascam Thingy?

Why do you do it?.
Enjoyed my second listen of that track, Christian. I appreciate the "out the box" craft that went into the track too. The complexity boggles my mind.
