Hi Everyone -new Snow user. After researching a lot of synths, I decided this would be a good addition to my setup, which is an Elektron Octatrack and Machinedrum UW.
The Snow is my first dedicated synth, and until I know more about it, I'm intending to use it primarily in Sequencer Mode to create melodic samples for the Octatrack. I'm a hardware guy and have virtually no experience with DAWs (I currently use GarageBand as a glorified tape recorder and not much else), so it may be awhile before I can appreciate the TI aspect of the Snow.
But that's OK for now. All I want to be able to do for the moment is create some high-quality 4-bar loops I can use for minimal, house and techno. I expect I'll start by exploring the factory sounds and additional downloadable patches here on the Access site. As I won't be using a DAW I'd like to focus on how to control the Snow using my Octatrack, which I've already found can send the Snow 4 MIDI channels of CC and note triggers.
I'll be browsing this forum of course, but if anyone can send me to resources, tutorials, etc. that would help me with these specific goals, I'd really appreciate it.
My one question at the moment is: Is there an actual manual beyond the Quickstart and Reference documents I see on the main Support page? I haven't looked elsewhere but I'm wondering if there's anything else I can actually read before I start pounding you guys with noob questions
