Parting shots..... a fond farewell

Post by Muff Wiggler » Tue Jul 29, 2008 3:59 pm

well, about to ship these out, so I figured I would take a parting shot, you know, for the memories...

*snif* :cry:

:guinness: i'll miss you guys :love:


not all sad news though. I'm still left with a complete Blacet rig including 3 VCOs, 3 EGs, 2 MiniWaves, 2 MicroLFOs, 2 Mixer/Pros, 2 QuadMix VCAs, 5 Multi/Attens, and one of everything else...

And I've freed up a LOT of space, AND I have Wiard 300 modules on the way AND AND AND, I know dubchild is going to love these modules.

For the small amount that the 'east wing' of my synth actually got used, this is a total no-brainer for me.

bring on the Wiard :sb:

i travel past the big guinness brewery in dublin several times a week - i'm scared to go in for the tour because i may just jump in a vat of it and not return :party:

that photo depresses me. it's like sending your children off to the grown up world never to return again.

maybe you can setup a visiting schedule for holidays?

naaaah, i'll be ok

i've kept all of their twins....
and unlike real children, i've traded 'em in on something I'll enjoy a lot more!

it was more depressing seeing this massive frac monster in front of me and never really using more than 2/3rds of it.... my system has become more focused now...


there's a lesson there my friends

(perhaps the lesson is that if you want something really expensive that you cannot afford, buy small things instead....then when you have enough of them, sell them off and buy that big expensive thing you wanted in the first place!)

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's exactly how I ended up with my modular.

sold off a bunch of small cheap stuff I didn't use anymore.

works well for we who can't save money well! :hihi:

yup. that's basically what i'm doing now. it's how i've gotten most of my modular. sold my EHX deluxe memory man, MFB Synth II, Doepfer MCV4, M-audio 61key es, playstation 2 and tons of records. i mean a bit of this of course comes from my day job but not in comparison.

i'm starting to approach what Muff has left frac wise, but i'm pretty determined not to sell any of my frac stuff. i really, really don't want to. but a focused system is important.

one thing i want to address is knowing the capabilities of synthesis to the point where you really decide what you need and what you don't. with the right patching knowledge you could have mostly bread and butter modules and get some great complexity. but with a lot of zany modules you could get all that bread and butter packed into a smaller package. i'm kinda straddling both lines and not sure where to settle on. i like density in a module but also simplicity. i don't weigh in heavy enough on either side and i think that'll hurt me in the long run.

what do you guys think? what are your goals?

All be re-assured that Muff's Blacet modules are going to a very good home on the Central Coast of California, no fires too close to me, only ash and some smoke. When i get it all set up with my other two rack 'o frac, I'll post a picture.
Thanks again muff!! :hyper:

they are packed REALLY well

you could probably..... well, i don't want to jinx it. Let's just say, "they are packed really well". Once he receives them safe and sound I'll tell you what you could have probably done.
