Deadmau5 Gear Identification

Could someone please help me identify the piece of gear in the picture below. It is the 3U rack piece on the left hand side that has blue/grey/white knobs. I have seen this in both his studio and live setup. Also, what is the hardware rack synth just below the Nord? Thank you in advance.

So does this guy 'Just hit play' or is he live sequencing his music with an arsenal of gear? I'm confused.

Not sure about that rack gear, but the synth is a Cwejman S1.

I think a bit of both. From what I can tell, he is hitting play but adding in improvisational aspects during the songs. I know that some of the hard synths are midi triggered during the set but I'm guessing not everything.

This seems to be what you are looking for, never used one myself but have been quite interested in it and their other unit.
Thank you so much funtez! I never would have figured that out!

Damn, that thing looks killer! And $1500 doesn't seem too bad for all it does.

there's a Mac Pro in the rack. I guess that's where the sequencing comes from
correction - TWO Mac Pro's - perhaps one spare? or maybe mix different tracks?
the module with the row of green lights is a Hinton Switchmix
there's some Cwejman in his eurorack eeh... STG sequencer (with the horizontal faders)
if I'm not mistaken some 4ms modules (the pink and light blue one)
Virus Voyager Nord on the right side
don't recognise the desk. also don't know what the two controllers are on either side. my guess is some thing to trigger his Ableton loops and sequences.

Agreed! I may have to add this to "the list"...
