๐Ÿ’ฌ Hello from Chris Beckstrom (No. 1)

Replied to Hello from Chris Beckstrom (No. 1) (I’m Chris Beckstrom)

In February I built a new synthesizer Iโ€™m calling the โ€œInterstellar Boolean Logic Exploration Device,โ€ or โ€œIBLEDโ€ for short.ย Hereโ€™s a video.

Enjoyed the first edition Chris. I was left wondering about your ‘cool links’ and was thought maybe over time the links in my newsletter have become slightly ‘uncool’. Food for thought. Thank you.

Personally, I got a Behringer MS-1 and a Roland MS-101. My wife had promised our children that I was getting a guitar for my birthday, I convinced her to buy my a keytar instead, while I thought the MS would make a good stanley knife. In addition to this, I bought a cheap 10 track mixer. I am currently playing through the stereo, but have found the MS-1 a little volatile in regards to the volume. I was initially playing my synths straight through my guitar amp which was limiting.

Wondering if there any tricks and suggestions in regards to managing the volume/signal short of riding the faders? Also, what speakers do you use with your mixer? I fear the deeper I dive into this world, the less I know.
