Howdy guys,

I think I've successfully convinced my friend (guitarist) to get some modular gear in to his set up to integrate with his pedal board...
(It didn't take much convincing after running his guitar through my Megaohm Audio Delta VCF hihi )

He want's me to give him a proposed mini set up (10 units wide) and I've come up with the following:

Megaohm Audio Delta VCF
Groove Audio DUAL VC LFO/VCA
YuSynth Complete Sample and Hold (from Bridechamber)
Krisp1 built Oakley Deep Equinox Phaser (Krisp1 built)
Krisp1 built Oakley Mini Mix (Krisp1 built)
DotCom Instrument Interface

I'll build a pine case and the small dotcom portable supply should do the trick. I can also put together an 8 x true bypass switch, if he wants.

DIG/No good?

Anyone have some amazing ideas?

Thanks,

Josh

Given that guitarists usually have both hands busy you may want to recommend a Dotcom pedal interface and a couple of rocker pedals to modulate things like filter cutoff.

The problem with Moogerfoogers is that you're paying for a lot of duplication, particularly power supplies and enclosures. They're a good used buy though.

Agreed on both points, and wanted to add that the Moog EP-2 would be a good candidate for a rocker pedal. Should be able to find them for about $20 used.

The DotCom Instrument Interface has a gate output that you might want to get an envelope generator for. Oakley's VCADSR has a useful looping function that can be set to loop whenever there's a gate signal. I'd think that would be pretty nice w/a guitar set up.

But remember, you can lead a guitarist to modular, but you can't make him wiggle!

I was prodominantly a guitar player until I started playing with synthesizers. Then discovered modular madness.

Although I haven't checked out the instrument interface yet...may do so in the future.

My prophet08 sounds raw as f**k through the instrument interface. Sometimes it sounds like a real guitar..
Awesome module.

Agree on all of those points. We've got a bunch of the foogers between us already. They're great, but I don't think its a real match for a full 5U set up.

Great idea. Might put that on the list (I wanted one anyway, so maybe I can steal it off him applause )

Analog Craftsman will have the Gristleizer available at some point and that would be a lot of fun for Guitars I bet. LFO controlling either a VCA or VCF with different waveforms and CV control.

If Doug at SSL ever makes the 1U Sync LFO (slimmed down tap tempo), that would be a great fit as well for modulating all kinds of stuff.

The MoogerFoogers do make great Guitar friendly instruments. They are a bit on the expensive side but they treat the whole idea of a synth in a way that includes guitars. The combinations of things really make for unique treatment of sound giving some unexpected but exciting sounds.
