high! i'm a linux-based music producer from Kyiv, Ukraine.
doing psytrance / electro industrial / TBM with algorythmic improvisations & live percussions (either finger pad kontrollers or full-blown e-drum kit).
i found Axoloti as a lower latency, lower jitter alternative to a regular USB MIDI setup (which is horrible by design), and then discovered that its patching works very similar to csound (which i used to be obsessed with in the past), but better by design.
my current live/jamming setup is DAW free. i prefer old skool, 80s style approach — computer for MIDI tasks and hardware for making noise. so, a linux-based laptop runs a few instances of 2 MIDI sequencers — free sequencer64 & proprietary B-Step Sequencer — but i hope to re-implement it all in Axoloti and make the whole setup laptop-free.
for making noise, i use: Novation Nova Laptop (the best subtractive-virtual-analog synth ever made, period), preenFM2 (FM synth), Yamaha DTXPress III drum module, and another Axoloti.
for tweaking it all, i use: Novation ReMOTE Zero SL Mk I, Korg PadKONTROL, and Novation Launchpad Mini Mk2 (this one is to be replaced with Launchpad Pro, because the latter has velocity-sensitive pads and proper MIDI connectors). all MIDI is routed via Axoloti-controlled Miditech Midiface 8x8, DIN connections always used where possible.
for mixing and recording, Zoom LiveTrak L-12 is used.
well, it's not that small as just a laptop with an audio interface, but fits 40L backpack anyway.
and to make money for all this stuff, i have a full time job as Linux system administrator.
