    My Vampire has taken centre stage in the studio!:evil:

    First impressions are every bit as inspiring as I’d hoped, it’s going to take a while to unravel the mysteries, but that’s the beauty of the instrument…. and purple LEDs!

    A big thanks to Gabriel and Marcel for keeping me up to date with things, I’ll keep you posted on it’s progress…. and expect a few ‘How do I ?’ threads too!

    You’d be surprised how few questions you will
    have to ask. One I got over my Logic/MIDI Integration
    setup issues, I have had no trouble at all. The Octopus is so intuitive and simple to use, it really is amazing.
    I am so glad I got mine.

    Don’t try and do too much at once. Just concentrate
    on getting it setup with whatever system you use for music production and you’ll find the Octopus will
    just take you where you want to be.

    There are lots of mysteries to unravel, but it’s a bit
    like reading the Harry Potter books – lots of mysteries
    but none so hard as to leave you bewildered – just enjoyable!

    Sounds advice indeed, thanks! The Octopus does seem very intuative, definitely one of those rare pieces of technology that draw you in, but as you say, one step at a time…

    That said I had a few hours with it yesterday then the phone rang late last night to confirm a job I’d been waiting to get the green light on! The good thing is the Vampire is perfect for this, I always feel the best way to learn something in the heat of battle! :)

    I read the description of your Logic solution, seems very well thought out, I might pick your brains over that if I get stuck though! Right now I’m looking at having the Vampire run it’s own bank of real synths, leaving Logic to deal with the virtual world, plus of course midi, audio and video and act as the master clock. Either way I’ll figure it out over the weekend… I hope!

    Cheers.

    My Vampire also arrived today YAY! Thank you genoQs for such a wonderful device! And thanks to all of yall in this forum who greatly influenced my decision to obtain an Octopus!

    I can not wait to get this project done at work so I can go home and add it to my studio…

    I do some embedded development in my current job and also over the last 15 years, so I am very excited about this product. It already has an amazing set of features, but having the ability to "tinker" a little is awesome. I have been working on several DIY music controller devices and the Octopus has completely blown me away.

    I am so excited! Also stunned at the serial # on my Vampire!!
