OMG WOW AND THANKS

Post by Muff Wiggler » Mon Aug 27, 2012 8:29 pm

Ok I am exhausted but I gotta share these crap cellphone pics.

Today is a serious landmark day in my life. Something I've been dreaming of, planning and working towards for the better part of ten years has been completed.

Lots more text coming later, along with a HUGE list of people I need to thank for making this possible (not least Grant Richter, Cary Grace and Matthew Goike), and of course better pics and sounds.

But for now some quick and dirty photos to get the blood pumping.

I have no words to express the awe and gratitude I'm feeling at the moment.

Be back later.

OMG.

edit - Folks have been asking about the empty middle case. I'm not quite yet ready to install it yet, but this is what it will hold....

So what goes in the empty cabinet? Row of Euro-Wiard? More Frac? Milton?

Hopefully I'll be getting that install done in the next day or two (I'm behind on SO many things right now, in specific getting OpenTapes setup for a ton of folks is weighing on my mind....)

but that row is for the frac I couldn't bear to sell, which complements the Wiard system:

2x Blacet MiniWave (one with Hylander Expander)
2x Zeroscillator
1x Saw Animator

excellent Mike!

Why not move the front panels forward so there is no gap, leave the gap at the back so you have space for your leads to plug in.

Amazing synth.

I also have a 300 and an Evenfall. I always wished the Evenfall had a blue faceplate to match the 300.

That looks (and i'm sure sounds) beautiful! Love the vibe of a complete system like this.

Muff - take a much needed break, have a seat and begin your exploration of the endless possibilities contained within this machine! :goo:

thanks everyone - and while I still gotta write my huge thank-you post, a massive shout out to mattysal as well who drove to Vermont (from Montreal) to pick this up for me, then held it at his place for about two weeks before I could come and get it! This whole synth represents such a community effort as you'll see when I get the time to sit down and write the whole story for you all.

Also I added this pic to the initial post in this thread since people were asking, but I'll post it here as well for those who have already read the first page in the thread:

Mike,

That wood is gorgeous! Looks great with the blue faceplates. :-)

Really happy you finally got it all put together at last!

All the best,
