Last video, I promise!

If you don't like my singing, you might want to skip before you get to 1min 18sec ;-)

'You stole the light' is a new track taken from the upcoming album by cakefolder. It was created using Gecho Loopsynth v2, Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2s, Korg Electribe 2, Arturia Drumbrute, and Arturia Minibrute.

Hey Mario - thanks for your kind comments, and your hints and tips. It's brilliant how you support and continue enhancing the little lizard... it's so great that you are so dedicated and passionate about the amazing products you've created for us to enjoy.

I look forward to experimenting further with Dekrispator, and the next version of Clouds...

Thanks a lot for sharing your song! It is very cool to see the little lizard used alongside the more serious gear (which I do not have so double thanks for showcasing it 8) ) and a good example what it might be used for: background textures. By the way channel Dekrispator (#33) has many more patches that could be used this way, it's possible to modulate them by voice as well, and the effects - e.g. delay - can be turned off when not needed.

I've added your video to the reviews page. There is no formal process for this, only that whenever I see a cool demo on YT or IG, I ask people if it's fine to embed it on the website. But thanks for starting this thread too, it's a good idea and hopefully it will inspire others to share their content here.

This also reminds me that the Clouds channel needs an update. It was ported over from the Mutable Instruments open source code base as a quick test, but never finished at my side - it has more parameters internally than bound to Gecho's controls. I did not have a more complex MIDI controller than Keystep before but now I have one with 16 knobs so it will allow to control everything at once.

And please feel free to post link to your album when it's out. We need to start a thread / a website page for that too, there already have been a handful of people who actually used it in a music production... And that's super cool!  ;D

I've just release another one:

It's called "A brush with a Gecho".
This time I used the infinite looper function on this amazing little box (channel 32), and I used a paint brush for percussion.

I was wondering how would people submit their own Video reviews / user demos for consideration for the official page?

Here's my latest offering:

'Gecho Thunder' is my first proper track made using the Gecho Loopsynth v2, which I feel is an amazing little box, and I love how it can process sounds from the local environment using its stereo microphones. Sounds such as a Thunder Tube!

I also used Korg Electribe 2, Arturia Drumbrute, and Arturia Minibrute. I didn't do any singing on this one. Maybe the next video will have singing.

I'd really appreciate it if you would watch the video, give it a thumbs up, and even share it on your social networks for people that might be interested.

Thanks for reading, watching and listening! Maybe other people on here would submit their own examples to this thread so we can all share and enjoy.

Such a great tip! Thanks Alex. I'm going to do this.

Happy New Year!
Awesome news about the firmware update. My unit was on v1.0.113... but I've now updated to v1.0.116 successfully, and I'm loving the new loopers.

Thanks very much Mario. I will try out this method with channel 1 and let you know how I get on.

Hardware Questions / Gecho v2 : MIDI In
« on: November 29, 2019, 09:02:40 PM »
Has anyone been able to get MIDI In to control the Gecho v2, e.g. using channel 31?
I've been trying with 2 different midi keyboards, setting various MIDI channels, all to no avail... and I know the MIDI keyboards and cable are OK because if I flip the cable into my Volca Keys it works successfully, but when I plug it into my Gecho v2 all I see is a very brief L2 LED flash for each MIDI key press - but no sound triggered. Switch SW2 is correctly set to 'up'.
I also tried experimenting with channels 3121 to 3124, but there are no details of what I should be looking for to learn the test results.
I would love it if someone who has got it working could do a detailed demo and post on YouTube or similar. The demos I have seen so far are for modified v1 Gechos and just show it working, rather than step-by-step which settings they used and how they got it to work.

Thanks for updating the Manual on here to reflect Gecho v2... very handy!
I tried to log into the "For Gechologists" page using my Gecho as a hardware key, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Should it?
