Well I did it again. I bought a G1 again. This will be the third one I have owned. I sold or traded the others and sold the G2 I had. I now have a G1 and a G2 again and I think I will keep the G1 longer this time. I saw a great deal locally and pushed it off for a couple of months and the price went down to a point where I couldn't help myself. It wan't expanded (my G2 is though) but since I have the G2 also, I won't be pushing this one too hard. I am keeping my eyes open in case a DSP expansion card shows up somewhere, but I have little hope to ever see one.

Still - fun to have a both of these back. Time to sell some more Eurorack I no longer need.

Oh, and there is a sound difference between the G1 and G2. Different D/A converters maybe. Don't know for sure.

What are reasons to have both g1 and g2? Also, how's micro g1?

Yes. I have talked to Rob Hordijk about this (he was instrumental in the G2 design). IIRC there is also discussion about this on the e-m forum. He says Clavia went with the technically superior converters for the G2, but felt that they were too clean, less 'musical'.

I don't know - at the end of the day, they're both digital, and I think the adage that you can dirty a clean signal but not clean a dirty one applies to an extent. Also, the G2 is a massively more capable machine. But, least I sound like a G2 apologist - I have both too :hihi: :sb:

There are some differences in the types of modules in each unit and their implementation of MIDI. Also the sound is a little different. I would rather have two G2's than a mix, but I can't afford another G2 and couldn't pass up the G1 at the price I got it. There are time when four slots are just not enough or when you want to load a new sound without killing what is playing in the other slots, but that is minor. The micro versions would be good too but at that level I have an Axolotl which will do more and cost quite a bit less (the case-less PCB is ~$80).
