My name is Tobi and Im happy to finally join the AE community.
My AE Story is easily told.
I always had friends who were makig beats or were doing some dj related stuff.So there always was a connection to making music somehow.
But all the times I tried making music, I mostly only used software but never really got into it.
I just thought: "Okay thats not your thing." Maybe I was thinking like that because I´ve been doing other art and desgin stuff anyways which kept me creativly busy at this time.
But there always were small occasions where I did some "Soundfiddeling" , like making a beat with a gameboy camera or creating soundeffects or digging samples for a video.
Then I made some Partys together with friends and somehow got into VJing and did this on some of our and other small events and raves for some months.
But then...then i discovered the joy of using a hardware synth.
One of the friends I did the partys with allready had sticked his nose a little bit into modular and bought a roland tr-08 together with an other homie of us.
I cant really rememder what was the spark that lighted up the SynthFire in me, but suddenly i desperatly wanted to have a korg volca sample.
And this one friend and me now started digging everything synth related and sharing our interests all the time, while planing which stuff we add next to our "jamsetup".
After I got a used volca sample, the next 3 pocket operators joined the party soon. Add all 3 montrons and ipad to the mix and i already had nice and fun portable setup.
I think this started all around 1-2years ago. And since then i couldnt stop reading stuff about soundsynthesis.
And from the start of this there always was the wish to have a portable modular system that i could integrate into my "jambox"
I dont really know when exactly I discovered AE, but I think it was pretty soon after my passion for synths started growing.
And I thought: "WOW! There is something reachable...."
But at this moment i wasnt ready to own a modular analog synth, I still had to learn more. Almost started screaming one of the sellers in the
musicstore just because i was to dump to figure out a modular synth XD.
So I started creeping around in this forum as a silent watcher for quiet a while now (haha silent - quiet get it? haha ;P ) and learned a ton of things here
while readying a lot of ur posts watching the shared videos and follwing the links. This is such a frikking great community. <3
I got deeper and deeper into the materia every day also by starting some breadboarding and dying.
And on some point that all wasnt enough anymore and i wrote Robert an email and asked if he could imagine getting some more help in his workshop.
He could so i went to bavarya last december and now i got my offically soldering pro medal but I also learned a hell lot of other things and we had a great time.
Since I got my first System I´ve been patching quiet a lot. And its like some kind of meditation for me.
Next week i will get an old Irig midi Interface. Exited about controlling my AE with TouchOSC.
There is still a lot to discover. Nice we got a place to share our discoverys.
