i'm kinda happy i managed to control my synth buying habits this past year (i only got rme UFX and a new DAW machine) so i'm not sure - i'll probably get something in 2012, but wanna be careful not to increase time/money/willpower needed for maintaining vintage stuff, beyond what i already have. mostly bcs of constant hit'n'miss with synth techs arround these parts. in that context, it's much easier with monos than with polyphonics, one only has to work on one voice, no dac/memory/multiplexers/eeproms etc... just CV and GATE. beautiful. so this is the direction im probably continuing with. and sml modulars. even tho i had dreams of adding an xpander and/or jp4 to my polyphonic roster, i'm pretty much past it now. so, few things im thinking of more than others, but no decisions yet:
System101 (had a friend's unit for cpl of yrs, now i want mine..)
System102, if i find one
Vortex desktop or Dominion X. need to hear more from both.
modularizing one of my SEMs, adding noise, s/h and a 2040 filter
adding a transistor ladder to my Elektor Formant
hairball audio 1176, classicapi vr312di
Mytek ADC192 (to hookup to my UFX)
Shrutti with dbl SVF or 2044
i'm definitely getting:
iPad or iPad2 to control MBP live
Expert Sleeper's ES3 (yeah i said that last yr too
, but seriously..)
building more absorbers in my mixroom, and a pair of diffusers
more HD space, and more.. and more.. need a total bkup system so..
