Hi from a new ER-301 user from Hamburg, Germany!
I received my ER-301 at the end of 2018, admired it, but there were so many other things going on in my life that I did not get to it…and perhaps a part of me even feared that learning its user interface might take up too much time…
Fast forward to this spring, the lockdown and the immensely increased time I had to spent at home. So I got myself a Palette case and after some experiments arrived at this installation:
Over the last weekends I jumped into the ER-301 and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed learning it. The user interface is wonderfully thought out, and really fun to use, especially the scope mode is a real help and blast.
This weekend I started building a 4 Operator FM synthesizer, and having the 16 faders of Sweet Sixteen as a tangible access to FM synthesizer is quite something for me. Although I programmed my own sounds on my first DX7 back in 1984, having multiple controls for operator levels, feedback values etc. is a completely different ballgame.
OK, so much for an introduction, I hope someday I will be able to give something back to the community (instead of asking newbie questions ).
