Re: 5U anxiety

Regarding resale value, don't even think about that. Modules, and modulars, just don't have great resale value. So buy what you want to keep. great advice from Dave Peck but I'd disagree with the above, try and sell any other bit of music technology from 5 yeas ago and see what your devaluation is ...

Re: 5U anxiety

A very small system of 5U would quickly show you if it was up your street. as its all about the sound/ergonomics... if those dont click, its not for you... you already have a Eurorack compatible synths so can see if you prefer the larger jacks/panel size. if you buy something worrying about the resa...

Re: FSFX Topographic Drum Sequencer

For me the whole point was to take advantage of letting go of the wheel a bit to allow for happy accident looping. Same reason I bought the AC implementation of turing machine when I started in 5U. I watched a video where Woody (piano Shack) went through the Reason beatmap sequencer, its a great im...

Re: Vocal choir (no daw) instrument - where to find?

VC330 clone? or original.

whether it actually sounds like a choir is debatable but its a recognizable sound and can be improved with post processing.

Do you like digital modules in your 5U? What makes a good digital module and is there a balance of features/interface?

You could even do this with a Q123 Standards module, set to Octave=5, Semitone=0.

I like to put the modules that there's no room for in the main case into a small side case or skiff.

Re: PSA: Junkie XL massive 5U sale

Generally charities prefer a sold out and empty stockroom than loads of overpriced stuff sitting there in wherever Reverb have hired to store all this stuff.

Prices will drop once they realise much of the stock isnt moving, but by then the press and PR will have moved on.

Nothing in the manual about USB being a MIDI-in connection, so I guess you need to plug in and see if this works.

you are fine with 2x brutes, they are playable and you can get a varied sound from them. I would get a nice delay pedal, reverb and some way to mix the two brutes. maybe some rhythm backing, like a good deal on a simple drum machine.... you would spend 1000+ on Eurorack to get anything as flexible a...

Re: PSA: Junkie XL massive 5U sale

Make no mistake, this is all Reverb managing the stock, the comms, the sale and the shipping.

There may be bargains once the remaining stock starts to hang around, as Reverb will not want to store anything in perpetuity, so we will see stuff priced to sell.

eventually.
