I used to have an E2 emulator. one of the sweetest sounding and most fun to play instruments i've ever owned. I remember the keyboard as having a really nice action - light but not flakey!

That's an admirable collection of instruments you've got there.

Agreed. Perhaps some sort of dust covers might be a good idea.

Here's the old setup:








And we have since moved house, the new setup will be something like this:







This console is now full of gear:




It's a lot of fun....

Sweet set-up rachel!
I live in sydney and want to get a toft atb16.
Where did you buy it from and for how much?
Also, what do you think of it's sound? Especially the EQ's..

I got my ATB imported as part of the Pilot program. After shipping and everything,
it came to about AUD4900. Front End Audio will be stocking them over here,
but I do not know the retail.

I have not used it much yet - still
patching. They do sound good, though. I will eventually get deep into it, but first
I need to finish my room.... I'm in the outer west of Sydney....

Cool, let me know how you go.. I produce mostly electronica and would love to hear somebodies opinions on the desk who is on the same page as me - not some rock dude..
I know front-end is bringing them out, but I'm just not sure of costs yet.
Might email them..

How's that ATB going? Let me know what your thoughts are on it..
I'm tossing up between getting a 16 channel ATB or a Neve 8816 summing mixer.

Still need to build a separate unit for all the keyboards, which is going to take a bit more time as there is substantially more weight to them.
Nice and concise Jim.

It's a cheap metal trolley that we put the TV on. And then on top, a desktop rack.
The shelf underneath was supposed to hold my space echo, but it was the wrong
size.

That's all been changed now (the trolley is actually a bit flimsy) and everything is in
the raxxess console under the mixer and the analogue synth rack is now in that rolling
slanty rack.

I am still getting used to it. Mucking about with patchbays and getting all the inserts
working the way I like. I also installed a fan unit to blow into the power supply, to keep
some air moving around inside the console. The sound is good. Not as mushy
as the cheapo (un-nameable brand) job I was using before.

I thought about the Neve, but they are very expensive. The tradeoff for me was
getting some sort of pro EQ into my system or a better buss. The ATB gives me both.

The other option is that TL Audio valve mixer. That would keep us warm here on
cold Penrith nights!

I think the Neve (with faders) is a great option, though - if you're doing lots of guitar & vocal
stuff, but I am a synth nut and just want something to track through with a nice EQ, inserts
and summing down to 8 inputs. When the ATB's FW interface comes out, I will install
that and track right into the computer! I am only using half the features of the ATB
at the moment, but I bought something I will grow into, instead of out of!

You just summed up exactly why I want one. Something I will grow in to... I'll def go for the firewire out if I do end up buying the ATB. Only pob is if i get 16 channels a few months dow the track I'll be spewing I didn't get a 24 channel..

I am spewing I didn't get a 24 channel. But I do not have the space, the money
and probably don't deserve it tutt

But I love the 16 - it's a great unit.

With or without any synths it looks very nice!

Just of curiousity... where did you get that "space odyssey kind of looking" desk?

I looked at your studio pix - very nice - I am most envious. You have lots of space for modulars, and assuming that you're using them on your recordings, you apparently have the luxury of time to learn how to use them.

Modular systems can be expensive, take up lots of space, and be time-consuming to use. They often seem to be preferred by collectors, tweakers, and people who just enjoy making ****** noises of an ungodly sort.

I like your music, and if indeed you're using all of your modulars on your recordings, congrats. The rest of us are likely to find it easier just to dial up a patch on our TIs.

Oh yes, I use them for my recordings (thanks for your positive comment) and I agree, lots of stuff out there where people think they are just FX boxes and try and make as absurd a noise as possible, but for me the pleasure is in the power. Sonically the good ones are about as good as analogue synthesis gets. The interaction is great and I think they are easy to use. Logic helps as does experience, but they are certainly flexible and more importantly fun.
When inspiration lacks, a good wankfest on a modular usually get's an idea going but on the other hand if you need a specific sound or effect, you can usually get it.

Expensive? yes, although my polyfusion cost me about as much as a good U-47 (which is after all just a mic ) would cost and that's the one I paid the most for. Or maybe what a late 60's Strat would cost (of which there are thousands...)
I didn't pay anything over $2000 for any of my other systems, but this was 15 years ago.
Space, yes, but Serge for example take up very little space. a 2 or 3 panel system is an amazing synth...

As for the luxury of time, not anymore, but when I got my first one I think I worked on it for 6 months non stop....but like I said, a bit of logic and some ideas and anyone can use them.
