love to see peoples studio set up with their modular

Sorry, just kidding. Bet that thing on the right sounds great though!

they needed benches and trolleys for them back in those days smile
Babaluma
don't we already have threads for this in the individual manufacturer forums?
amnesia
i was interested in studio photos more than the modulars
Luka
my studio, not as mega as most of yours at the moment
but watch it rise this year now i have some time and cash flow.

so, current jammage
303, 606, 707, laptop running abelton (used to be logic)
klee, cgs vco, wave mult, and a few others

waiting to finish school then ill start etching all my new faceplates for my new format modular and get the midi/cv/sync24 box working to interface it all together. its going to be great fun this year. i am getting a killer case like that serge monsta devil looking case being built by my housemate at the moment.
cant wait.
Roycie Roller
Is the Klee the one with the circular design? Looks cool!! Any chance of a close up? After seeing photon's photos of his Klee's wiring, i'm putting it off for a while. Sheesh! ambulance
Luka
yeh sure

for awhile i was planning to build an entire modular out of this rusted steel
but i had problems marking on the decals so ive chnage tact but here is the klee design



it is missing switches at this stage of the build
it will look a lot nicer with the new panel
Roycie Roller
DIY to the extreme!!!! I like it! Will look cool with blue'n white banana plugs!

It's not that bad, really. It just takes a long time. And I made it worse for myself using that damn braided cable. But I got a mess of it for free, so...

Here's the current iteration. It's nice to have some spare time at home for change. I've been rearranging damn near everything in the home studio. It's been a productive week though! w00t

First attempt at stitching a panoramic photo together... didn't work so well & it split my Vostok in half. Compensatory photo attached.

Whoa... those K+H UE1000 EQs kill me. Great EQs. My friend sells faceplates, in English, for them. Let me know if needed and I'll make the introduction.

See here for that black mutant Goya guitar.

The UE1000s are one of my favorite EQs, 6U for a mono EQ!!! (500 series modules can kiss my ass!) All point to point wiring! I always record bass/kiks/snares/anything that needs fat through these, often just left in bypass, they add something HUGE!..

The Eastwood looks like a beautiful geetar, i wish i had some spare moolah as I'd make you an offer.. hihi love

I've been looking at these kinds of racks, is that 4U @ the front? How do you think it would go mounting modules at the front of the slanted rack & in the front facing space?

I like the modular on floorboards thing you have going there also 8)
BugBrand
I had a similar sort of case but taller (sloped top with 3 x 3u racks + maybe 8 u at the front)

It gave me a hernia!
(seriously!)
-- partly as I was using 12v lead-acid batteries to power it, but also 'cos the case alone was quite weighty. Ahh, life is for learning!

It's 3U at the front. Originally, that was because I was going to mount the MOTM-900 power supply on its side (it's 3U in width). The case has a little trap door in the back which can swing open for power cables and whatnot, and now I'm thinking of trying to find a way to mount the PS directly in front of that trap door and use the 3U in front for frack modules or a euro subrack.

I won't have a problem with having mods both at the front and on top, provided that I don't keep the case on the floor. I'm moving apartments in a few weeks, so this exercise in backstrain is temporary.

Hi Carbon111
Nice set up
I just love your Pro-One I followed your updates on it on harmony-central (i think) when you where renovating it
When I have the time and money I’m going to get me one of them wooden cases from www.synthwood.com to give my Pro-one the look she deserves also a full overhaul would do no harm

Hey carbon, have you compared the saw osc sync on your AL-1 voice model to the Pro One? I think you'll find them similar! My Pro One was used as a reference to which the AL-1 voice model's saw sync was created.

I'll check that out!
Very interesting! How'd they end up using your Pro-One, Brandon?

I haven't used the AL-1 much at all unfortunately...I've gravitated to the MS-20 emulation for VA-type patches. I love the depth of that sucker! love

For "Sync" sounds I usually just use the real deal - the Pro-One...or the Prophet 600. thumbs up

Well, the old SCI sync sound is really the gold standard for hard sync sweeps, and we no longer had JB's old Prophet 5 hanging around the office, so I had to bring my Pro One in for listening/comparison tests.

Understandable, I think the AL-1 would have benefitted from a filter that had nonlinearity in the feedback loop, like the MS20 and Polysix emulations. Any time I start programming an AL-1 sound, the filter really kills it for me. But the oscillator sections are really great.

The D-A converter module converts the digital data from the Digisound keyboard controller to cv and gate signals.

A friend of mine has a Digisound modular, I really like the sound and the module layout and preformance.

To bad those CEM ic's is hard to find, because almost all of the schematics are available on the net.

I have wanted a Digisound for as long as I’ve been into modular
All the moduels are fully working just the pots need upgrading and a few jacks could do with replacing and cleaning
the D-A may be replaced as I don’t have the keyboard maybe with a 80-21 VCDO the miniwave of the 80's give me something to do with the 3340 ive been hording hihi

yeah and it has one of those stories where it was originally owned by a organist lady for a small church in a coastal country town where she played it every sunday for a billion years, then the church closed and a friend of mine bought it at a garage sale for $50 or something ridiculous and then she found she wasn't using it and sold it on to me at a modest profit. it comes and goes in my production but its a wonderful thing to tinker on grin

Thanks, Sandy. Correct - I play and record in quad at home, and actually have some concerts coming up this Spring in which I'll be able to perform in quad for the first time.

ooh - that must be fun love
do you find it much of a pain doing the quad material at home and then usually having to do a stereo version, either live or for release?
rlainhart
Thanks, Flip - it's very kind of you to say so.


flippantminister wrote:

rlainhart
It is fun, I have to say. It's not so much of a pain, as it's pretty simple to mix the 4 channels down to 2 without problems - it's more of a disappointment that there's no easy way for people to hear the music in quad. For example, "The Orchestra of the Damned", which is on "The Beautiful Blue Sky" album Flippant mentioned above, was recorded in quad, and it's really a much more powerful piece when heard that way instead of in stereo, as it is on the album. The large reverb spaces in quad are much more spacious, and in the dryer sections, you can really hear the motion of the voices swirling around you in a way that just doesn't come across in stereo.

I've thought a lot about how to present these recordings as I hear them. One way, of course, is surround encoding, but how many people really can play or listen to music in surround? And of course surround encoded material doesn't work in earphones, which is how many people listen to music these days. I've also thought about re-recording the pieces in my studio or some other space using four speakers and a binaural head microphone, but that has its problems too - first, binaural heads are massively expensive - Neumann's KU-100 dummy head binaural just recently went up to $11K from $8K, and I haven't found a place that will rent one as yet. And I'm not sure that my own studio is acoustically clean enough to support a sensitive mic re-recording, meaning I'd have to rent an appropriate space too.

That's really the main problem with recording in quad - how do you present it?

yes - that's what i was thinking. i'm interested in multi speaker set ups but it seems that unless you either do them in a sound installation type setting, or are fortunate enough to be able to play live somewhere with the necessary capabilities, there will be an inevitable compromise regarding what people actually end up hearing versus how the music is intended to be heard.

I've always been a be fan of live sound, but to realize the unique character of live quad performance is exciting.

I wonder if you could record a quadraphonic composition in 2 pieces (left/right in one recording, front/back in the second recording) and leave it to the listener to play the recordings simultaneously on 2 systems with appropriate speaker placement. This idea doesn't address the shortcomings regarding headphone use, though...

Very comprehensive sequencing setup in your modular. If I may ask, what do you think of the Moon Modular Trigger Sequencer and Voltage Controlled Envelope Generator? From what I've seen they both seem like wonderful modules.

I can`t live without these modules anymore hyper I am using the M563 in nearly every patch and also for my Syncussion but now COTK came up with his new Trigger-Sequencer..... I think this is a good alternative to the M563.

Ok, i've been postponing these pics for a while cause i wanted to at least get ONE of my wogglebugs mounted first.

Wide shot of setup, you can see one of my woggelbug prototypes on top of my MPU-101 on the far right... Ahh the rich warm sound of cardboard

Theres also an EX-8000 at the bottom of that rack that got clipped.

Closer shot of euro/paia setup so you can see the modules. Got a couple of test panels in there for the wogglebug.


and here is my new PORTABLE setup that im pretty happy about.
Finally have a rough aluminium pannel for the wogglebug in there to work out the wiring and mounting details before i do the final fabrication for panel.



I still have some work to do on it, such as add some multiples to the top and bottom rails as well as try to reduce the depth of the paia kit so that it fits better while closed.
I love this case tho. Standard SKB 12u popup mixer case. Im surprised more people arent using this cause it fits eurorack PERFECTLY.
Frac is about 3 inches too deep to fit properly when closed so i have to store the 9700 loose until i get a chance to re-mount the boards at an angle to get it to fit. Or just wait until i have replaced all the utility functions on it with euro equivelants. (note i have no lfo's envelopes, or vca's in my euro)

And YES i AM using a canadian tire workbench as a stand for it.

I'm excited about that new dual osc module, because I really think the ÷N comp will be fun to have for a weird sub-osc, perhaps paired with the wave processor module for more shaping madness, or dual filter for sculpting...

Yes, it is a tough choice.
The ÷N comp is one of my favorite modules. So many uses. It can provide really nice PWM, too, and the staircase out is an inspiring modulation source.
Rex called it a 'rock chewer' in its application as a signal processor, and I think that's a good description!

I dug the Publison out today since I was just talking about it. Fun stuff.



http://www.flickr.com/photos/parasitk/3387764113/

Also dug out the LinnDrum today. I was given it by a generous fellow on the old OSX Audio forum but it never worked. Today I unpacked it and it powered on! Still doesn't work, but I contacted Forat about getting it repaired. SlayerBadger!

Note the lovely black and pink original Game Boy. I use it for NanoLoop playback because it actually puts out more bass (relatively) than the Game Boy Color that I use to write with (GBC screen is sooo much better though!). Yeah it's ridiculous, but fun.

Thanks man, glad to be part of the K5K club 8_)

The DN-36 is the stereo one, right? I find being mono is a bit of a bummer, but not too much. I love the colourful knobs, and the fact it was made in '77 - same year as me!

There's a DIN socket round the back which lets you patch in a voltage to modulate the delay time. I keep meaning to wire up a cable for it...
Kent
Yup, the DN36 is stereo/dual mono. The best part is that there are 3 ouputs: A, B & A/B blend. You also have cross-feedback of B into A and A into B on those black knobs. There are different LFO shapes on that toggle switch near the blue knobs.

Your DN34 has a DIN connector for CV? Mine has this kooky mini-tuchel thing.
Ranxerox
No, you're right, just checked - mine's a tuchel as well.

I guess while the DN-34 may be mono, and not really capable of echo, it does have two separate delay circuits that you can switch in parallel or series, and switches to invert the phase of either one - I have gotten great wooshy phasing effects this way love

He means the Klark Teknik DN34 / DN36 from the previous posts. They're studio analogue delays from the late 70s, mainly good for chorus/flange-type effects but also pretty cool just to look at 8_)

The Void is 1 of 2 modulars that were made in the UK in the early 90s. I got it from a Vemia auction in 1998. It's got 2 VCOs, 2 multimode VCFs, 2 LFOs, 2 EGs, noise gen, ring mod, VCA with distortion, 4x1 and 4x2 mixers, and a cool 8 step sequencer. The blue Electrocomp is an EML 200.

Here is my work/studio setup. The desk is worth mentioning. It is motorized sit/stand and each leave moves independently, so I can expose or hide the 10u of rack space underneath. It even has articulating cable routing built in. Best investment I even made since I'm at my desk for work and play way too much.

thanks! Its a small studio I'm setting up in a room most folks would consider too small to be a bathroom. In the picture is my frac-format modular, a small yamaha mixer, and that black & gold box is a Ciat-Lonbarde 'Aluminum Phosphate Crystal Simulation'. The white table to the left has (not pictured) an 8-track recorder and monitors. I'll post more pics asap.

Hey Kent,
I'm not sure how much you care about or use your guitars but it's much better for them if you put them back in their cases after you use them. It helps keep the action / intonation right and prevents any bowing / twisting of the neck that can happen from hanging on the wall for long periods of time.

How do you like the 61B Quad LFO? I'm going to start a Modcan system soon. First two modules will be the Dual VDO and either one of the quad LFO's. Not sure which LFO I want to get. One is cheaper, instant access to all controls, has a higher frequency range, and less features. The other costs more, lower frequency range, but seems pretty insane with the features.

these were my first impressions of the "crazy features" quad lfo that i posted in the 5U forum a while ago:

the quad lfo, along with the vcdo, is at the moment my favourite module out of the 6 that i got - having said this they're all great.
i was a bit worried that the paging interface on the quad lfo would be confusing but in general i've found it very straightforward. a couple of times i have accidentally edited the wrong lfo but i found i very quickly got used to making the "which lfo am i editing" selection the first thing i check/do before tweaking anything else.
i've hardly touched some of the features yet - wave transform is one that i have yet to really play with. i've found the none transformed waves so good and extensive that i haven't felt the need to. i've only done a little with the 3 modes (normal,quad and rotate) the module offers. quad and rotate definitely have some interesting possibilities. i have a couple of patch ideas - just need the time to try them out!
other then the extensive waves the main thing i really like about the module is the modulation selection. the gate and cv inputs both have an associated button that can change which parameter they modulate. for example - the cv input can control either frequency,amplitude,transform or wave. this parameter modulation selection is not global - it can be defined for each of the four lfos by the press of a button.
the other thing i've found *really* useful is the ability to change (again, with a button press and individually for each lfo) the polarity of the lfos. so, you can have it putting out positive voltages only, negative voltages only or both.

It is by far the most feature-packed set of modulators I have. The paging interface took a minute to get used to, but the more you use it, the more it makes sense. I love the polarity switching, I love the modulation routing, I love the LFO shapes (the two different staircase and random ones come in particularly handy), I love having tempo-synced LFOs. Even if you just use 1 LFO of the 4, it's worth its price in value.
Suburban Bather
Thanks fellas, I figured that I would end up with the 61B hihi
BananaPlug
My first Modcan order slightly pre-dated the 61 and I got the 03. I absolutely love the 03. It does the most common LFO tasks, you get 4 in a compact package, and there's the bonus feature of topping out well into the audio range. Later I did get a 61 and the comments above are good ones. Not much I can add. It is a wildly versatile module. I'm working on assembling a pared down portable unit and I have to choose which module gets in. Tough call. Last week it was the 61 but right now the 03 is winning because it's just one space wide.
a100user
Over the last weekend and a few evenings this week I have completely stripped my little studio to improve the ergonomics (give it a good vacuum) and generally tidy up the cabling.

The pics below show it's new format. The only outstanding piece of work is the installation of the patch bays for audio, cv/gate and midi. Which is not going to be a trivial task.



The main modular which is mostly Doepfer plus Analogue Systems, Analogue Solutions, Voxglitch, Bananalogue, Plan B, Livewire, Tiptop, Flight of Harmony, Oakley, Elby, Blacet (spot the Klangwerk) and some DIY.

BTW if anyone can help me with contact details for Sean Price of Synthbox, I need to purchase some bits to get the new rack running, drop me a PM.



Mood shot



Next we have thre SKB racks. The bottom one has the MOTU, Midisport, old Fostex mixer, Kenton and will house the patch bay. The middle one has the SMS modular and a Doepfer MAQ 16/3 and should also house a Bass Station rack which needs a new replacement cutoff pot which is happening at the weekend. The top rack has the Pulse and 1st series MAQ 16/3 (no CV/gate).



I built the desk originally to house the keyboards and the main modular but as the modular grew I found I couldn't reach the top, hence the move around. To keep the kit list going we have a 24" iMac, M-Audio BX8's, Mackie baby Hui, Novation keyboard controller, Yamaha AN1-X and the only vintage piece of kit I still own, the trusty Korg 700S (I'd love to get hold of an 800DV). The basses are 4 & 5 string Status Grooves.

I like it a lot, but you do need a Planet7 for it to really shine.
It has some really nice features CV waveshape on the VCO, which is very stable, VCLFO, lin and log VCA and the Planet adds slew, inverter, attenuator, mixer, multi and a DC shift which when used with two MARS units makes a wonderfully controled sync.

Can't comment on the other units SMS sell but Andy is a real nice guy and very enthusiastic. If you call him expect a long phone call smile

HA! I love the cockpit pics. That's kinda my dream setup too. Every time I fly I can't help but peek in the cockpit on the way off the plane, they just look so dang cool! I'd linger and gaze more if everybody wasn't in such a dang hurry and I wouldn't get areested or something. I also like going on old boats and stuff, the radio rooms are always so badass!

Like on the Queen Mary, here is the switchboard:


Note the sweet foot rest! And somebody needs to figure out an awesome retractable patch cable system like that.

Most everyone here has posted relatively clean and neat studio - here is the opposite. Although I have cleaned it up a bunch since last year when these photos were taken (some gear subtracted and more modules added) the place is still too crowded. Most of the computers are heading to the recyclers (or if there are any Mac collectors in Seattle - give me a call) but this is what happens when you let your work life take over and you let the studio slack a bit too far...

Yes I'm afraid so. I think I have every computer I ever owned except my very first Apple IIe. The cube is the favorite of the "old guard" because it is so silent. Great for a juke box but I have a Mac Mini for the media center. In the second photo you can see the four Apple IIci stacked by the window. All will be gone soon - I will keep the latest tower and the laptops and ditch the rest. If I don't get a collector who wants them I found a recycle place that doesn't charge to take them - even monitors (there is even a couple of 24" radius monitors under the table!). This is the legacy of being a graphic designer for 30 years. Hard to get rid of old computers...

That is why hardware synths will always outlast VA synths. Most computers will loose value the second you buy them. I must admit though for a computer junky like me it has helped a little - having a older OS on a older computer allowed me to run the Nord G2 editor longer and I even have Max 3.5 on one of the Apple IIcx that still works. And the Atari that isn't in the pix is fired up ever so often. Those NeXT were rare and coveted like the Cubes were - you may get a decent price for it. As for older computers in general - you can ALWAYS sell and old synth for more than a old computer.

Those Mirages are one of the best hidden deals around - I think I got the racks for around $75 each. The keyboard was the first piece of music equipment that I bought NEW. The hidden value is that there are 8 CEM filters in them and when they finally have their floppy or something else die those chips will find homes elsewhere. The main problem with the keyboard version is that after decades playing it, I have gotten totally used to the action on it - which has been roundly ridiculed by real keyboard players everywhere. I have some non-factory samples on it that are quite good - a piano one that I use constantly. The 8-bit sound is good for some sounds - hell the old Fairlight samplers on so many records from "the day" was an 8-bit sampler.
BTW I am selling the Wavestation A/D - I have a SR and don't play the A/D as much.

I've got a K5kS. It is a great synth. It has one of the best keybeds ever put into a synth. It plays really well. It is fantastic for evolving textures and metallic sounds. It is actually quite versatile but really excels at 'cold' and 'crystalline' stuff. All of the extra knobs make it easier to edit and they can be used to control outboard stuff too.

The HP oscillator is absolutely necessary. If you want to to do _pure_ ring mod or freq shifting, you need a vacuum tube oscillator. Smoothed triangles are OK, but not the same as the real thing...

Actually, I've built a solid state clone of the HP Wein Bridge oscillator, and it also has the same ultra-low distortion sine out. Do you think there would be enough demand to make a run of them? (Analog sines are indeed super-awesome.)

Actually, I've built a solid state clone of the HP Wein Bridge oscillator, and it also has the same ultra-low distortion sine out. Do you think there would be enough demand to make a run of them? (Analog sines are indeed super-awesome.)

So many beautiful pages of knob collections! I am new to this forum, so I thought I should introduce you guys to my studio:



















As far as modular things, I have a Korg MS-20, MoogerFooger Rack, MFB Kraftzwerg and a Blue Lantern Clones Toad Synth (that I modified, separated each section for use individually), jacked out and built a new case for). I modified my Tr-606 and TR-808 to accept trigger/gate inputs for each of the sounds. I am working on modifying a PigTronix Attack Sustain to be modular as well. I also have a big project at the moment, which is building my own CV sequencer which will have many ways to cross pollinate as a modular device.

I am a noob in the area of real-deal rail case modulars, but as my budget allows I plan on buying/building my own room-sized modular piece by piece.

I used all IKEA stuff pretty much. The slant shelf is a thin metal shoe rack from the Stolmen wardrobe ($15). When I saw the Stolmen Line, I measured my gear and bought a bunch of it. It was expensive ($450-$500), but it is modular, so I can rearrange it to fit my needs. Right now I have space, so I have one keyboard at sitting height, another shelf at standing height and slant shelves for standing height as well. It works great for me. When I had less space, I had 6 shelves stacked and 2 sections for all my gear (which was a bit cramped).

I hear you! Volta/Silent Way would be the only real downside of the Echo AudioFire route that I took. And at 30 inputs and 32 outputs I seem to be stretching some FireWire/iMac limits (in practice if not theory), but most days it hangs together.

What are the two boxes on the bottom right?
Bryan B
Those are custom boxes I made myself to test 2 very different concepts I had come up with. Thanks for asking!

The one on the far right is a cable converter and multiple box with six groups of four jack multiples. There are 2 sets of 1/4", 2 sets of 1/8" and 2 sets of banana mults. The lines between each section go to jacks that are between them. Those jacks connect the different multiples when you insert a cable. This allows you to use more jacks and convert between the 3 main cable types of modulars. The Tonewrecker bought the only other one I have made of these and uses it daily! I wouldn't mind making a run if people want some of these.

The box 2nd to the bottom left is a Midi Multiplexer/Demultiplexer. It has a Highly Liquid Midi kit inside that controls 8 different switches with Midi note on messages. The (3) 1/4" jacks on top are used to spread 1-2 signals to 4 or 8 of the inputs. The left jack routes the signal to inputs 1-4, the middle routes the input to all 8 inputs and the right jack routes the input to inputs 5-8. The jacks below are just the 8 inputs that go to the midi switches. Plugging anything into one of the 8 inputs disconnects that input from the shared signal coming from the top inputs (if there is any). The midi notes control which switches are open or closed resulting in the 8 outputs below the inputs. The bottom 3 jacks are the reverse of the top as they combine the signals and have a passive trim control for 1-4 and 5-8 because 8 signals at once is too many! This can be used as a midi patch bay or can mix and match CV/Gate/Audio signals etc. I got my MS-20 to sound like R2D2 with 7 different LFO's while I was testing this thing out. I have also run multiple audio sources as inputs and used it as a audio chopper to make some interesting things. I included a 5vDC 1/4" out jacks so one could take it and feed it into all 8 inputs to create a Gate signal if they wanted as well. I could be tempted to make some of these for people as well.

I could post better pics of these, but which forum section would I put them in?
Soundwave
nice choice you got there bryan! this is really interesting thing, what's this? is this totally diy or doepfer based?
Bryan B wrote:


Bryan B
That is a Blue Lantern Clones "Toad" Synth that I modified to be completely modular. Before I got my paws on it, it had 2 1/4" jacks on it (Audio in to the filter and Audio out). I got some good info from Flavio (who designed the PCB) on where to tap into some things and then I couldn't stop. I made the case custom with laser engraved labels and laser cut jack panels. I am calling it the "Horny Toad".

I am not completely done with it, but it is nice to have each section independent of one another now. I still have to mount the PCB, power and midi jacks, switches (in the second Envelope section) and wire up a circuit for the sequential switch I wanted to add. The range switches on the VCO's didn't work, so they sit empty right now. I would say it is 90% done at this point.

W0W Bryan, very impressive! I would love to see better pics of the mult - I don't see any reason not to just post them here.

What are we talking price wise?
Bryan B
Here are better pics of those 2 boxes. As for prices on the Mult, I need to source the jacks again (because the switching ones I used are not available anymore). I also would like to redesign it to be smaller, more useful and more affordable. The Midi Multiplexer/Demultiplexer I would sell for $175 (plus shipping). Keep in mind this includes a midi kit inside that is $50 (not assembled).









I have the 3 boxes in the below pic that are already assembled, tested and available to ship if anyone wants one. I have one translucent Green, 1 Translucent Red and one Solid Black for $100 each (plus shipping). They are Din Sync Multiples with Individual Pin In/Outs. There are 2 identical sections, each with 3 Din Jack Multiples and (4) 1/4" jacks (one for each signal pin on a Din Cable). This has a variety of uses, including splitting one signal up to 5 machines, dividing a clock signal, using audio as a Clock signal (elimenating sync timing issues!), Adding another clock input for a pseudo swing, messing with the reset by running an LFO or Gate into the start/stop, Using an LFO to create a clock signal and running secret government transmissions through the unused pins while you do a live set wink These are made of Acrylic and the Labels are laser etched so they will never scratch off. The green is easiest to read, the others are readable, but more subtle. The size is a third of a TB-303 (3.5" X 5").

I like it very much. It is my first sequencer and I have found that I would like a few other options to play with, but they are not essential for now. It has been great fun learning to use a sequencer and also to find out what kind of new things a sequencer opens up while playing.

The fact that it is small is great, I can lug it with me between home and band practice easily.

I like the CV outs more than the MIDI out, because it is just that tiny bit easier to manipulate different parameters that way. But this is almost a trivial point as I use CV with my modular and MIDI with the Voyager RME.

I used a combination of Dopefer DIY and proma rails for mounting. The powerbus was the tricky thing, its actually underneath the black stripe at the bottom. All ribboncables from the modules have to go there - so there's not much space.

That explains the stack of S3000's and my interest in that CTM module from Doepfer which I've turned into a 64 input trigger to MIDI controller (I've only got one on the go at the moment, as I wanted to redesign them slightly - its the thing with a grid of red bananas on the top at the back)...

Thank you oops

I built the case but all the DIY modules are by Todd Fletcher.

The triple oscillator module is the Jurgen Hailbe 'Living' VCOs.
http://www.jhaible.de/living_vcos/jh_living_vcos.html

Also a JH design is the Triple Chorus from the Arp Solina.

Still waiting for my Tellun Neural Agonizer.

The big knobby thing in the middle is the Wave Multplier/Tube VCA from Metalbox. Michael Ford was willing to convert this and a Bi-n-tic to euro format for me.

The pin matrix (sigh)
it's from Ghielmetti, I was going to be part of some kind of super utility module and then I discovered the difference between a DIY kit and designing something from scratch.... so for the moment the pin matrix is a decorative piece.

Although, I am pursing a VC 'Ghost Box'. Originally an EVP design, I thought it would be cool as a noise source in a modular system.
It's a Tuned Radio Frequency receiver chip with a voltage controlled varactor diode for tuning.

Waow...and this is only the beginning applause

This is one of the most personal, multi-brand/DIY modular projects I've seen!

cheers, i've inferred we have a similar opinion on maintaining elegance in our environs, you're the one to clue me in on the lush sterling 19" racks. thank you! love love

the audio cables aren't quite minijacks, they're some other size called a tini-jack (http://www.switchcraft.com/products/jack-103.html) which is what is used with the buchla instruments. near the photo is my buchla cabinets. there is a rack to the left a few feet which holds the proper minijack cables next to my cwejman instrumentation.

don sells these cables but they unfortunately do not play well with the sorts of jacks found on eurorack equipment....

Yeah hihi And still do. The gear is older than the monitor.

That was one of the first 19" monitors to come out. Everything else available at the time was around 14 or 15". I built that studio in 1997. It hasn't changed much. Every time I get a new monitor, it ends up in my office, or lab, or wife's office, garage, dog house, kids room......

I'm thinking of just getting a huge LCD TV and mounting it there. Entertainment AND a nice monitor. nanners

I got rid of stands and everything in my studio can be done with me sitting on my floor. My legs thank me and I get more done. However my modular does sit on a flight case 6U high with a few extra inches added to the height. This in contrast to past set ups is pretty amateur but it is my favorite set up to date.

Thx guys.

@luka Well you do have to bend over but it's pretty ergonomical.

@Audio Resistance
UA remote pre is the KEY to this remote setup. I've gushed about it already on the forum but really I absolutely love it. For one, I can use it without the computer being on at all, so instant modular satisfaction.

When the computer and audio interface are up, I have complete control over all the elements in my headphones without affecting the direct preamp channels to the audio interface. The levels accurately match whats happening at your audio interface, you can cue mix what's happening on the computer back into it. One cable from the remote preamp box is ethernet that can run up to 300', powered by that one ethernet cable. Kinda thinking it's the ultimate final stage for a modular.

Thanks oops
I'm very happy with it.
To be honest, I'm not yet totally comfortable with seeing my setup as one system - I'm still at 'two systems with optional cross patching possibilities'... Soapbox
Initially, my aim was to add some euro to my frac, but it soon grew to a system of its own.
Now both halves do have most of the necessary ingredients, but they are very different from each other.

I do cross patch quite frequently, especially for spreading clock signals all over thumbs up

Poor quality picture from my phone of my setup taken yesterday evening. I still have some gaps to fill (big one in the bottom of the bottom rack is waiting for the return of an A-154/A-155). Then I need more space or a bigger case. I am quite pleased with my setup.

A nice side-on rockshot of me and my Modular World case at its first gig outing in Windsor, UK, on 29 May, with Urthona [http://urthona.co.uk], supporting Julian Cope.

That's a sweet white Mellotron behind me - sorry don't know what model. The eagle-eyed will spot a handy BC8 on the table too.

The modular produced our bass lines, keyboard lines, wind, klang and wibble. All out of the one case and straight into a giant 1970s custom guitar amp. Raw, loud and wonderful.

thanks for the comments folks. and to dennis for the hand-me-downs hihi
well spotted on the modcanA stuff wetterberg. it's on a small table i can pull out and use. i grafted a blacet power supply into one of the sixpacs and some banana to 1/4" jacks onto the side so it can act as a totally standalone system.



here's a picture of the other side of the room. it's not that big and rather full now - you can see the edge of the big 5U case beside the mixer to give an idea of where things are. the imac is my main music computer. the old ibook is for some granular programs that only run under os9/classic.

I dig the photon, but I doubt I'd dig it as much if I paid full price for it. hmmm..... It's a useful light, the light sensor is fun sometimes. And it has a handy attenuator on it. If I was forced to make room in this rack, it'd be the first thing to go. Fortunately, I'd rather just buy another rack! SlayerBadger!

I was in a metal band for a while and they always seem to wanna book 8 bands for these crap-a-thons. So I had to learn to set up in 5 mins and tear down in 5 minutes. Then I got in other bands and you sound check at X time, set up for an hour if you want, and tear down quick as possible if you are not the headlining band. As a result of the shitty promoters of the metal world I still feel compelled to set up in 5 minutes while the rest of the band watches me in a state of WTF.

drewtoothpaste
We finally got everything set up yesterday. The rack next to the modular has a trunk cable going across the floor to the keyboard rack so I can record without stringing cables across the room (or send PT stuff thru the Eclipse/Distressor without doing the same.)

I set up 4 of the 8 I/O on the digi002 on the patchbay below it so I could set up FX as I need 'em instead of getting a second convertor to use the ADAT I/O.

The slanted roof-walls probably set up some weird standing waves but I'm used to it as the past two places I've lived have had similar cavelike shapes.

I'm probably going for a 256e though the idea of MIDI and patch storage is appealing so I haven't ruled out the 225e. I'm still saving money so I have time to work it out. If the P/R was still in production though I'd probably get one. I should have when I had the chance.

Yup, I have the 266e already.
dkcg
If I had to only pick the 225e or the 256e, I think it would be the 256e. While I love the 225e and it makes using midi a breeze, the 256e is in almost every patch, the 225e usually ends up converting a midi to be used as clocks. But the presets are useful and a fun additional tool for exploration.

nice setup jon screaming goo yo
i think it's a 50/50 between the p/r and 256e. if you can get hold of one, the p/r is a great match with the 266e. but some form of voltage processing would certainly be handy - it's next on my list.

I reckon that the stands are relatively low to the floor. I did some quick mental math and it looks the net module height is about 15" taller than my 5U rig, which would indeed make it 8 feet plus, but I think my stuff is on slightly taller tables.

It's a mix of Cwejman, Doepfer, ASys, Serge, Modcan and Cyndustries, plus some digital stuff, including Kyma/Paca/Continuum/Lemur. Probably my most used gear after the modulars, which tend to get interconnected as needed.
My problem isn't height, it's width, there's a fair distance from the Modcan sequencer cabinets to the Serge panels. I'll probably be rearranging sometime this fall.

exactly. the difficulty is to put same format modulars next to each other.

that's why i have arranged the technosaurus selector as i tall column, in order to be next to the korg MS series as both have big jacks.

I suspect at some point you might have to go with long cables and/or buffered transfer panels. It would depend on how much inter-format patching you wanted or needed to do, but as I already do so much of that... For now I get away with 6' banana cables and roughly 6' banana<>1/4" and banana <> 1/8" cables.
I could see eventually adding transfer boxes that would be trunked behind the module stacks. Probably need to have a convention for buffering to try to eliminate voltage droop -- maybe with driver circuitry at the nominal other end.
I think I'm a ways away from that, but if I had your stacks Mr. Green

hello,

i do inter-format connections between the modulars all the time, but, so far, the 5 banana to minijack to bigjack converter panels (one makenoise, two metalbox, two custom-made, all build on the modulars) i have, are ok for me.

best regards, smile

ps: forgot, i also have and use many bigjack to minijack converters, build into the Doepfer, Integrator and System-100m, of course.

Thanks, I like them a lot. I find them to be a *little* lean on the very lows but the Dynaudios are sort of hyped there so they make for a good quick check for flabby sub-bass. I've used them with three amps, the sure thing is that they want a lot of power before they really open up.

thanks! It's really exciting getting to work where a lot of my favorite records were made, and get to know the people who made them. My favorite thing to do with new clients is take them back to the tape room to see the archive. It's amazing. The board is a Harrison which I'm still installing; until two weeks ago I had a Yamaha PM1000 which was awesome but a little too limited for some of the stuff we were doing.

i'm a 100% studio guy and i'm not doing live gigs,
so there is no need to keep things portable.

i started with an a100 basic system around 15 years ago
and since then it never really stopped growing.
usually i'm running five or six patches on it simultaneously,
thats why i'm not downsizing it.

Good eye! It "sort of " is! Long ago I was in a prog band that rehersed in the back of a music store and there was this non-working Synare kicking around the store for a long time and i finally got a deal on it from the owner. I tried to fix it for a while but gave up and totally pulled the guts out and built in one of those "synth on a chip" things Radio Shack was selling at the time. I added an envelope follower (I think) so I could still hit it to trigger it and I also attached that calcultor pad to the top of it so I could "play notes" from it (I never got anything like a recognizable scale out of it though. It also has a built in power supply and attached AC cord.

I haven't plugged it in in over 20 years or more! eek! Almost afraid to! MY ASS IS BLEEDING 8_)

My Scully 280 i picked up for 30 dollars at a Goodwill a few years ago.
drewtoothpaste
Nice gear Architecture, do you use the old Akai racks a lot? (sequenced by the MPC?)
Architecture
I need to use them more ill say that. Theyre all wired in and hooked up, Just need to find the time to build up a sample library for them. The S950 does get a bit more use than the S1000 simply for its grainy 12 bit sound. For a while the MPC was the main sequencer until Ableton Live 8's ext midi sync became absolutely worthless. Now I sequnce with live these days, seems to be working fairly well with a PCI midi card.
RSB
And now i need to write down this patch.
giorgio
from a jam last night

groovebox for arpeggiators and basslines
er1 as the main rhythm box aka drum machine
mpc for sampling whatever or other tricks, fx, etc
modular for sequences/basslines/wampy

I also had an ms-2000 that was barely used for this session. had the arp latched and going through the er-1 gate for a bit, real nice. also we had a sustain pedal on hand, that was such that plugging it in kept the groovebox arp latched. shoulda/coulda/woulda gated that through the ER-1s other channel. next time.

Yeah, I wouldn't feel too humbled by the gear you already have. Some very nice kit there and room to work with it. But then I could have TONTO here and someone else would have MORE!

Your eyes or totally unfucked giorgio, that's two MiniMoogs right there! Though, like "goose" becomes "geese" shouldn't plural Moog be Meeg? grin

I bought one extra on chance to see if I could sell it on but right now it feels kinda good to have two. I'm thinking of quite a few things one can do with two. There will be video!

The retail rack thing I've done works really nice but I need to move the rails down on the wall. Right now the lowest part is like 1.5 feet off the ground and the top 2 feet are all but useless. So the studio is in for an overhaul to get the new Mini in and get some things into working height. And make room for more to come smile

The ugly home made patch bay is to be hidden too.

According to him it's actually from a MIG-17 - a Soviet interceptor from the 50s, the real deal.

Back in the 90s a guy in New Zealand bought a supersonic MIG-21 and started a business taking people on joyrides. That thing was faster than anything else in the country, NZ Air Force included.

My current setup, very messy and slowly becoming more and more frustrating. Selling the majority of the gear once I finish my uni as i'm using this all for my final year project (composition of electronic music without the use of computers). Will keep the 101, 606 and modular but the rest will go, give me a shout if you want any of it!

a pic from a few months ago. MD is gone cause I really didn't use it once I got the 808 and 909. minimoog is moved away as well cause I only play it by itself, no need to be so close to the modular. working on a shelf to the left of the 909 that will hold my jupiter 6, kiwi-pimped jx-3p and esq-1. also managed to prop up the sh-101 and put an ER-1 underneath it for those squishy sounds that the 808 and 909 just can't quite do.

PhineasFreak
Decided that seeing as i was spending over a grand on expanding my modular, it deserved a studio of it's own - so i started converting my spare bedroom into a dedicated modular playground It's peanut butter jelly time!

so far i've managed to use spare/old/free parts to build a working dual-screen, 10in/10out cubase sequencing/recording computer hooked up to a chunky soundsystem and necessary furniture:



(sorry, low-quality phone pic)

all i gotta do now is get the other 9U of modular in, clear out the junk and make the room a little more homely...

i even tested the noise by turning it up louder than i could withstand and going next door to listen on the other side of the wall: 1m thick stone didn't let the slightest thud through!

Hi Adam!

Those are stock EML 300 controllers. They were manufactured to be a creative alternative for the 200.

I described it on FB. I'll just cut and paste it since I only type with two fingers. very frustrating

The keypads are a 4X4 matrix keypad. Each button corresponds to the pot in the same matrix position to the left of the keypad.
Every time you press a key, the jacks above the matrix produce a gate indicating that something is pushed, a voltage that corresponds to the pot setting of the button you pushed that drops back to 0V when the button is release and, a sampled version of the same button voltage that stays at the jack until replaced with whatever level the next button you push is set at.
Essentially, it's just a keyboard in a 4x4 matrix that you can set the value of each key.

Each has an interesting envelope generator on them with a gated or timed duration, (gated by the keypad or a manual PB) a double saw VCO and a VCA tied directly to the envelope.

The two toggle switches on the left side of the panel are clickless, bi-directional routing switches.

Between the routing switch blocks is a pushbutton that just sends a gate voltage out of the corresponding jack.

The four switches on the lower-left of the left panel are switches I added many moons ago. 3-position. Each controls the corresponding sequencer 16-stage panel. They get their voltage from the gate pushbutton. Up position routes the gate to set the specific panel to stage 16, down sets it to stage 1 and center is technically off. So, I can preset the switches for where I want each bank to set to and press the gate button. It's saved me a lot of hassle during live performances. nanners

Believe it or not, its carpet! Originally we were looking for tiles that we could lay down in the zigzag pattern, but didn't want to mess up the awesome hardwood floor. The wood work in this place is quite nice. After looking around for a while, stumbled upon a place that made carpets like that and ordered one to fit the room. Really happy with it.

It's sitting on a lab bench.
The "case" is actually a structural sub frame that will be covered once I figure out what kind of wood I want to use to make it pretty.

So, it's sorta nekkid at the moment. The two 3-octave keyboards will have cases built around them and two more panels full of modules will be added to those. Sort of like two more synths but, the modules will be support modules.

So, I guess the only real answer is...I made them.

Not sure what you mean by lab bench. No benches here. I bought the rack about 10 years ago or so. It might have been K&M or something. I assume they're still in production. It's just a regular adjustable 19" gear rack with wheels + Doepfer A100 rack.

Where did you get your middle desk that holds your Behringer mixer and your monitors? I've been looking for something exactly like that for my Mackie 8-buss, but have found nothing. Nothing that is reasonably priced, anyway. I've just been thinking I would have to build my own, but yours looks perfect!

Amazing 5U system, too! I'm super jealous!

Thanks for the comments about my studio.

Ignatius is right...the furniture holding the mixers is the Raxess Config-U-Rack. A word to the wise on this furniture: go to Lowes/Walmart/etc. and buy the sliding feet to put under each foot of the Raxess furniture. When I re-arranged my studio, I moved all that furniture about 15 feet with all the equipment on it. I could never move that furniture an inch without the sliders.

Savage_vomit: The Tascam mixer is the model 308B. I purchased this mixer as the same time as buying the Tascam 38 8-track. It was definitely designed to use with the Tascam 38.

Here's my modest but powerful project studio:


I have alot of MFOS in here, a drone commander, a Z8000 and a FlipFlop in a mini-case behind the sherman. I'm selling off the mini-case and just send the funds for a !9u! monorocket M9 so I have a great deal more euro-crack to add into this setup.

Any thoughts on what might be added to this for a more well rounded studio?

I do a lot of work with the sequencer in the MEK converted to CV controlling the Z8000. Anyone ever regret having too many time-based modules in their set-up? I want to pick up more modules that can really add some surprise into my sequences but feel like three sequencers will be too much. I've considered picking up a euro clockwork or a timetable. I'm definitely getting a VILFO, uStep, uScale, and would love to explore The Harvestman line (Donut), perhaps the MakeNoise line (rene & maths), and potentially more tiptop. It's tough deciding on how exactly to mix 1/4" semi-modulars with 1/8" eurorack modules

I've considered selling off the wretch and getting the whole line of R-series modules plus other modules for the M9, but it's the Wretch! I've got some decent mics and a cool little guitar set-up as well, but I'm mostly doing very creative sound experiments with vocals, modulars/semi-modulars and soft-synths through Sonar X1. I use firewire on a Focusrite Saffire-Pro 14 to get mixes into my computer. I really shouldn't be building a new modular and getting a new computer instead but that will come eventually.

I'm also eventually going to add a few more pre-amps, an eventide reverb rack unit, and some other signal processors to the slanted rack next to Fyodor. Once I make my monies. hihi

No regrets from me on having lots of time-based modules.

I have found that the various sequencers all have their unique pros and cons. So, having lots of sequencers allows you to exploit their individual strengthes. This is fun!

I have found that the various sequencers all have their unique pros and cons. So, having lots of sequencers allows you to exploit their individual strengthes. This is fun!


I hear that...

I'm probably going to pull the trigger on this tomorrow...
anyone have any experience with the decade counter..seems useful?

I already have the z8000 and the flipflop, but it is scary devoting an entire row of my m9 to modules that don't really generate sound!! Oh well, I have plenty of sound sources outside of my case to manipulate with this row.

It's gonna be great!!

It's funny now that two complete strangers have now reinforced my decision to get more into nuanced sequencing I feel justified in diving in on these modules...

there needs to be a bot created trolling for the words "should I buy" or "I'm thinking about these modules" that will automatically respond:

It's not really that big, it just looks it.

It is almost too big to fit onto one shot though. That was taken with a 24mm lens and the tripod set up with one leg on the floor and the other 2 on my workstation bench just to be able to squeeze it in. I had to use an angle viewfinder adaptor to compose the shot and even then I had to lean sideways over the bench to see into it.

I think, once that lot is full, I'll have to either call it quits or move to bigger premises.

Depends on whether you angle them 90 degrees in or out. If you angle them 90 degrees out, then they face AWAY from each other and you get this really HUGE stereo field (but you have to crank the volume WAY up to hear them) screaming goo yo hihi

(+focal twin 6be on top of the rack and on top of that pile)

hm. excuse the blur :) i better write what i have there:

racks: buzz audio EQ, crane song flamingo, audiofire 12, spectral audio protone, spl vitalizer mk2-tube, spl transient designer 4, spl dynamaxx, uptown flash, a vintage tube TESLA preamplifier (was used in slovakian radio during our pseudo-communism era)

soundcraft m8, vermona retroverb, TC Fireworx, REDDI dibox, radial JDI, kurzweil rumour, kurzweil mangler, gyraf ssl comp clone.

+ few cables and one big bed and no space left :) it got quite claustrophobic there :) lived there for 1 year, then I inherited a piano, so I had to rent a bigger room recently... now wondering how how to get a bigger income too, to pay the rent.... but in the worst case i can sell some gear to pay the rent, and then with less things, i can even move back to the small room :))

Just for the sake of accuracy, I'll mention that the only spring reverb that is currently connected in the studio is the Quad•Eight rack unit under the green JoeMeek device & behind the yellow Metasonix KV-100.

The Realistic BBD "Electronic Reverb" is the little black box in the 2nd, non-white, Buchla case. A crappy little box which distorts rather nicely on the microphone input.

It's not as bad as it looks. The previous tenant put styrofoam insulation in the ceiling which deadens things a bit, and I have several area rugs that kill the concrete floors, and some "drapes" for the skylights that help deaden reflections. You can definitely hear the room if I record, but it's not as echoey as it was when I first moved in.

The ceilings are, my guess, about 25 ft. Old school loft where a former tenent had built in a balcony. Sad thing is I got no windows...but I feel safer with my gear in a windowless loft with a 25-30 drop from the skylights. lol

The building was once a factory in the 20's until I think around WWII. Then in the 70's a photographer bought it for pennies, I think the low 5 figures, like a car or a building cheap. They call it the "Artists District", but all the artists I know moved away because it got too expensive to have big spaces. I lucked out, I'm paying like half the rest everyone else in the neighborhood is. In the last 5 years the neighborhood gotten quite gentrified, "loft style" apartments went up, yuppies and hipsters moved in, and most the real artists moved away. Rents went from about 25cents/sq. ft about ten years ago to now around $2/sq ft, all within about 2 years during the fake over inflated real estate boom. People were flipping properties enough to raise real loft prices from about $300k to as high as $650k for the same property. It's ridiculous, million dollar lofts across the street from skid row....I love LA! meh

I just hope all the west side of LA moves to downtown so I can move to the beach for cheap, ahhh Venice in the early 90's... lol

Peik - that is a great set-up. You have everything covered. Great balance of instrument choices. Is that a Technics organ?
Peik
Thanks! It's getting to the point where I don't have to use the computer much for sounds, only for recording/arrangement.

And yes, that is a Technics indeed. I got it for free from an old warehouse and I don't think it's been used since the 70's - good as new.
It's got some nice features. It can hold chords and you can play the (HUGE) bass sounds on the lower keyboard as well, not just on the pedals.
These old home organs are awesome! And seems like everybody wants to get rid of them.

Synthie:
Made from a recycled bookshelf, the sides are birch, and the bottom and back are high quality plywood, I think birch too.

Finish is a mix of linseedoil, tar and turpentine, and I cut the freehand-drawn figures with a self-made knife... Sorry not gonna pay 30€/piece for those Pfeil chisels, altough it would make the working more comfortable...

Otherwise happy, altough it does not have a power switch (it's the Doepfer DIY kit with one powersource), and it's a bit deep, 260mm IIRC, so I have ended up buying a lot of cables from Tony...

Anyways, I went for a continental jugendstil look, because it's the Doepfer kit smile Took some inspiration from old Deutsche Kunst periodicals from the beginning of the 20th century, but they're original.
Hmm, it's almost full?



And just for reference, the room... I wanted the synth to fit in with the rest of my creations...


Current complete setup modular+Bombass+Gakken SX150+Moogerfooger103, EHX Polyphase + chorus, self-made Bigmuff pi copy... I'm starting to be done except a second oscillator for the modular.

I was just thinking how much I would have drooled over the gear I have now in the 90s. Somehow I had the same job but a lot less money. This was a bad photo so I thought I'd "artify" it. Most things are still recognizable...



From left to right (and up to down): some keys from my old SY85, a Mopho keyboard, a CP-251 on top of an Akai S950 on a Rast modified for a few Synthesizers.com modules, under which is a Moog Slim Phatty. There's a little Behringer mixer next to a DSI Tetra sitting on top of a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB audio interface. Next is a Doepfer Dark Time and a Korg Monotribe on top of a Yamaha E1005 analog delay. They're sitting on a rack containing a Vermona DRM1 MKIII, an Alesis Midiverb 4, and a (unfortunately non-functional) Novation BassStation Rack. Under the rack unit is another Rast that I got to bring the Vermona up to an ergonomic height. On it's shelf are three Moogerfoogers: a MF-108M Cluster Flux, the MF-102 Ring Modulator and the MF-105M Midi MuRF. Below the shelf is a Behringer CC300 analog chorus and a Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy. Then there's a Sampson MPL1502 mixer sitting on top of a Yamaha Hi-Fi amp.

So that's my "studio".

it is. nagra e. i haven't done a whole lot with it since i got it. i have thoughts of using it with my standalone boxes somehow but not sure what form that will take yet. inspiration will strike one day!

@rezzn8r
the two big boxes are a ciat lonbarde fyrall (the green one) and cocostuber.
there are some closer pictures and noises from that combination in this thread:

A-HA! I had the opportunity to spend lots of time with one of these a few years ago at one of the Electro-Music events. There is something especially fascinating about this thing. I'm normally not too interested in bug noise gear, but this thing really inspires creativity.

and for my 8000th magic trick, i mean post, i shall post a terrible picture of my setup as it sits currently.

8_) yeah it was all planned in a very short amount of time. i knew i wanted a rack row and there was about a rows worth of stuff i felt was lacking from my synth. i ended up making the rails by hand and getting all together super quick thanks to a bunch of wigglers generosity and my insane desire to have the "quadrants" filled.
sandyb
definitely gets easier to plan/know what other things you need (or not) over time i think. i'm way better at it now than i was when i started out on modular gear.

I have seen some of THE SICKEST SHIT in this thread! Some of you have some SERIOUSLY COOLY stuff going on! Makes my hillbilly rig look like somethig out of Sanford and Son.

But hell, I ain't proud .... here's whats thuh what's so far ...

(below) .. wide shot of about one third of the room. That's the '77 Rhodes Stage 73. Building an oak-veneer plywood stand for it today even! It'll sortof look like a Hammond C3-ish thing when done. The big black industrial shelf is .. well .. a big black industrial shelf ... "Lowes" item. Three computer monitors .. one for running Sonar, the other two for running soft synths (I really like the Arturia CS-80v and the MinimoogV, they both have nice and fun arpeggiators). Two active Alesis studio monitors. A Line 6 Spider 30 watt that get's used for various stuff ... it really pushes my ampless Leslie like nothing doing! Seems to work with the Hammonds VERY well, especially for that Jon Lord sound .. it does less distorted sounds just as well though. What can't be seen is a Dean MLFR with "blackout" pickups .. it lays on top of the Hammond A102 and is used as a slide guitar .... that thing sounds NUTS! .. some delay, some flange, a buttload of overdrive .. and Keith Emerson with his Ribbon Controller's got nothin' on me! Heheh ...


(below) There's the Hammonds. '55 M3 and a '62 A102. Both run beautifully.


(below) Here's the shelf with the rather empty DIY 44sp synth cab. The racks ... that's a Carillon rack computer on the bottom of the 12u. I use an Aphex 204 Aural Exciter as a sortof main monitor EQ. Works out great for main playback. Hitachi 2ch scope, Alesis Micron ... it's got a GREAT little arpeggiator (with midi send!) that I am hoping to use with The Almighty Synth.


The various paintings on the wall are all done by different members of our family. What's not in these pics is the rest of the studio. It's this odd L-shaped room. The out-of-view area has the Leslie 251, the Marshall amps that drive the Leslie as well as a 2x12 open back cab with V-30s in it, and another 2x12 closed back cab with Greenbacks in it. My "Shredbilly Tele", my Dean ML, and my Cort 4-string active bass, as well as the KC150 amp that I'm using for the bass until I can afford a B-15 or another SVT and a 210 cab for it. Had an SVT a couple of years ago. Should NEVER have sold it. Whatchya gunna do?

I have a DotCom controller kybd showing up sometime today, as well as seven modules and a power supply coming in for the synth today. Yay!

So there's the Flux Jetson studio ... so far! twisted

I cleaned and rearranged my whole studio yesterday. My legs and back ache like hell, but it was worth it. I was finally able to place the modulars near each other to enforce inter-format promiscuity.

Two things ....

I always really dig on seeing others' little DIY cabs ... my own 44sp 5u cab is a magnificent FAIL. I'm just so NOT a wood guy!

So 1.) Did you make them little cabs there? Nice!

And 2.) How sturdy is that shelving? I've always been leary of that ~type~ because all I've ever seen is the Homer Deepo stuff that sortof ~wiggles~ from side to side ... the actual shelf brackets are easy to sortof ~sway~ left and right in all the ones I've checked out. Are those that you're using a bit more stable in that regard (side to side swaying of each shelf, not the whole unit).

I truly dig your kinda rig! smile

I would seriously say give Christopher Winkels a shout regarding his low-cost (but -very- high quality) cabinets. Each one will hold 14MU (or 17U) of modules. Doesn't take long to put them together if you have a drill, and they can be put together with a screwdriver if you have the time (although I do recommend a drill). Three of the cabinets will give you 42MU of space for slightly less than a 22MU from Dotcom.
https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=48168

I recommend his cabinets so much, I'll be picking up several more from him (I actually abandonned the idea of buying the walnut ones from dotcom, since a 110MU equivalent setup will save me easily $1k CAD by going through Chris)

Little late in response here =o]

The top cab was made with George Mattson. We slaved away in his wood shop for hours making that thing. The bottom one is just a Ghetto Rack. If you don't know what that is, do a search =o]

The shelving is an Ikea Broder shelf. It needs to be screwed to the wall for maximum sturdiness.

You've done what I've been thinking of doing lately, which is getting a second MachineDrum. Used to have the SPS-1 and now the UW, thinking of getting the SPS-1 again just for drums and then the UW can be more sampling and sequencing. I thought it might be a little too much but seeing this I think I just convinced myself that it's OK!

I have a pair of those little active Edirol desktop speakers, use them in the same place too .. right there on my soldering/workbench. Them little suckers THUMP pretty good! I've got them connected to an old Dell laptop that isn't very good for recording (.97ghz x 512mb ram). The "little black Dell" just gets used for circuit notes, some text files, a bit of picture manipulating, and music playback. Them speakers pound out my Jeff Beck CDs pretty good!

They thump! Mine are 10+ years old or so, and they really sound very nice. Put out plenty of volume for a small studio too. All wood construction, headphone out, 2 band EQ, Digital I/O, Line I/O, self-powered w/no wall wart power input ... and they are sealed/front ported 2-way designs with all metal grilles as well! Pretty good for the money spent!

I have a Buchla system and Behringer monitors, well they havent been used really since I bought them as my studio just leaks sound and I have kids sleeeping in the next room. I bought a really accurate (expensive)pair of headphones to mix on and its never stoped anyone when they listen to my releases to say the mix sounds any worse than if I had speakers.
