Thanks, Goofaman; much appreciated. It’s nice of you to have welcomed me to the SSP club.
I’d like to thank Bert & Celine for their trust with what they’ve created. The three of us will work together to make this online community as robust and helpful as possible. My current duties will be to help keep the forum clean, efficient and to (eventually, once I’ve become acclimated) provide some structure and maintenance as things grow.
This will free Bert & Celine to work upon the things that only they can do and that’s gonna benefit everybody.
I have a big favor to ask of all of you: please have patience with my technical knowledge of the powerful SSP platform as I’m still in my early days and am going through the basics of learning the architecture and meta of the package. I’ll probably ask a lot of “Newb” questions in order to get up to speed ASAP. I should probably set up “Kent’s Newb Corner” or something amusing like that…
Some background on me and my music rigs:
25 years in the audio manufacturing industry having held positions in a bunch of well-known companies like: Yamaha, AKG, Austrian Audio, LOUD Technologies and others. I’ve worked full time as an engineer and technician in various studios in the USA and Europe and currently reside in Europe. Thus, my timezone is 9 hours ahead of PST, in America, and 6 hours ahead of EST.
I mention this as the timezone differences could explain having to wait a bit for replies and action depending upon where you are located.
I also do admin/janitorial duties at Muffwiggler.
My main synth rig is a 42 panel Buchla 200e (I’ll surely push Bert & Celine for some Buchla-specific add-ons at some point )
I have a Doepfer Monster Base and A-100PMS12 rig that I primarily use for effects and percussion: 2xZ-DSPs w/Valhalla cards & others, Rainmaker, Clouds, SDS ReFlex LiveLooper, RadioMusic, RS-290 delay, both version of Time Sefari, Temps Utile, drum modules, CV recorders, and so forth.
I mention these as it would be lovely to see some of the aforementioned functionality duplicated/mimicked/ported over to the SSP at some point in the future! I too have my dreams.
Oh, and I play guitar quite a bit. It is my ‘original’ instrument. I use a Fractal Audio Axe-Fx and Roland VG-99. Funny to think that there are some parallels with the Fractal and the Percussa.
Anyhow, I look forward to chatting with you all and making this forum something that you enjoy visiting daily. If needed, I’ll create a thread for all of us to discuss what we’d like to see from the SSP forum. Where do you want it to go? What would you like to see? How can we make it a better tool for users and newbs like me? I don’t know if there is a thread for (or similar) to that subject and will create one if needed.
Anyhow, here’s the gear!
