:hmm: Maybe that's what is holding back my fame and glory? I HAVE NO METASONIX MODULES! :cry: :cry: :cry:

I might have to "rectumfry" the situation someday! :tu:

I've always been partial to this Studio pic of Trent with the Fucking Fucker looming overhead.

Just got a report from acid DJ T. B. Arthur. He will be playing a set at the Berlin "Superbooth" show:

Some of his past work:

He also reports:
I recently set a Monorocket case on fire which was stuffed with all your modules (I did have it overloaded perhaps).
Monorocket cases are pretty when they burn by the way :bite:

I'm not 100% sure but i suspect the D-2000 was used on the "soon to be released" Depeche Mode album Spirit.. i will investigate
It seems to me that you're the expert, Mark.

Not sure who this belongs to. Three TS modules and a Phattytron.

I had no idea Emika was using a D-1000. It helps to explain why people keep asking about it.

http://equipboard.com/pros/emika/metaso ... 0[quote]In this July 8th 2015 Future Music article, Emika explains what she uses in her studio and says: “I love the Metasonix D-1000 - it’s a vacuum tube drum machine."[/quote]

http://www.musictech.net/2016/08/emika- ... /[quote]EM: I got a bunch of synths from SchneidersBuero in Berlin, which is a really wicked analogue-synth shop, and I’ve just got a load of gear from Metasonix, which distorts electricity through its valves, so you can just ramp everything up.[/quote]

][–]Emika_Official 0 points 1 year ago My favorite alanog synth is Metasonix D-1000. Check out this shop http://www.schneidersbuero.de/ The shop is in English too. This is a great place to start looking![/quote]

The home studio of Martin Gore of Depeche Mode. That "stuff" on the walls is his Euro modular. Spot the Metasonix lol.

Perfect example of academic synthesis. Zero patch cables, not even patchable either.

Those racks are getting some power so he must be using them. Either that or it's all just for "show". Did you know there's an old joke that recording studios deliberately buy the most complex mixing desks on the market, not because they actually use all the functions, but more to impress and dazzle the clients? "I am the genius recording you, and you are the idiot musician who can't even figure out my console, now kneel you ignorant barbarian" or words to that effect....I've seen studio people actually talk like that and would not be surprised if "certain professionals" assemble a giant modular just to intimidate their customers. :razz:

Going by what I've seen of Gore in interviews, including I Dream of Wires, he strikes me as a collector as much as he is a musician. Having seen pictures of his entire room there, it certainly looks like he's got a wide selection of just about every euro manufacturer, if not every individual module. It looks more like a library of modules than anything geared toward actual music creation, though.

I wouldn't say that his stuff would be unpatchable, all it would take is some extra-long cables, a decent step-ladder, and a bloody good memory. If I had a collection like that, I'd have a much smaller "performance" rack to use for actually creating noise, and just pull stuff out of the module library on an as-needed basis.

This, basically.
viewtopic.php?t=173977
According to somewhere on this thread, it is more of a library. Apparently when the spirit stirs him so, he will give a lackey a list of modules that he wants taken from the shelves and put into his performance case, or something like that.
Must be nice.

The D-1000 gets a mention by Lyonel Bauchet in the track notes for "Un coq à Esculape" on the new Ian Boddy modular synth compilation Tone Science Module No​.​1 Structure and Forces (DiN​:​TS01) (which I found via Hannes Pasqualini's blogzine).

Worth checking out. :sb: :goo:

For years I wondered who this belonged to:
