Nice, man! Real nice!

Here's my elite rack so far -- only 3U, but growing -- a UA 4-710d paired with an Eventide Eclipse. Sounds really good! I plan to replace the Digi 002R at the bottom with a UA Apollo sometime during 2014 leaving me with 2U for other goodies.

I am a rack guy (although I think the bottom end is important as well if your really want to go funky),

so here's the current version of my setup (fresh off a refurbishing session in the past few weeks)



It amounts to 85% of my firepower (add three kurzweil pc3 masterkeyboards and the VL-1).

There's all the analogue and sampling/vocoding stuff.

The bottom modules [form the patchbays down] and the prophet feed my bottom keyboard,

the modules above the patchbays and the cs6r [vocoder] are the lead/solo synths

That's awesome, ozy!

Seeing all those Matrix-1000s makes me wish now I hadn't sold two of the three I used to have. But in an effort to consolidate, last year I whittled my rack synths down to just one MKS-30, one MKS-50 and one Matrix-1000.

I didn't really ADD matrixes. I just replaced various other machines, step by step, with one single machine I know and master. Keeping 5 identical modules just gives me on-the-fly allocation to various keybeds, layering and splitting.

That was the mental process.

I created some 25/30 patches on the matrix which "sound just like me", they work fine, layer fine on each other, sit fine in a split next to each other, solve everyday's problems (a fretless bass, a clavinet bass, the usual suspects [brass, horms, strings, couple of percussive comp sounds,]),

while every time I had to reprogram a different synth I came to the point where...

"what the heck, why am I wasting all this time? Just call up that matrix horns sound and play it one octave down, dammit!".

So I finally reverted to matrix as my standard bread-and-butter poly synth for comping, pads and "analogue orchestrals".

In case I need something "new and different", I work on the prophet which has extensive routings and controls. I am in fact thinking of switching to the prophet12: it would give me even more "oddity" when needing to "move" a pad.

My go-to comping sound is: the prophet08 doing a quasi-rhodes with plenty of life and modulation, on top of two layered matrixes which give me the "oompf" I need to keep the groove running.

Different considerations for the LEAD synths, melodies, solos, counterpoints.

There, some variety of tools [the ARP filter in the ATCx, the moogish SE1, the vocoders, the vl70m] is in order.

That's more or less the story

But why three Kurzweils? Same logic?

Thanks for sharing it.

I was into linking them together and creating these like monster 18-voice patches. The problem is, I had very little use for them once they were created.

One thing that was nice though about having so many voices was never having to worry about decaying strings or pad voices getting abruptly cut-off by automatic voice allocation.

They're great synths, though. I'll hang on to my last one until the end.

Some of my FX racks from a couple years ago (the SSL G compressor is gone now, unfortunately, I loved that one)

yes.

I once used: a oberheim mc2000 as bottom keyboard, a prophet08 keyboard, the vl1 and a korg t3.

I gradually got to a standard set.

The first was a pc3k88, replacing the mc2000: "main bottom keyboard". Optimized for rhodes and some orchestrals + master keyboard for comping (often on 2 or 3 way splits)

Then I added a pc3k6 in which I sampled my korg m1/t3 and several ethnic instruments. I plan sampling my EMU there as well in the future. there goes the t3.

It also works as the main lead/solo masterkeyboard

The third and last was a pc3 non-k: sold the prohet08 and bought its module, bought the pc3 used for peanuts, it just works as a perfect masterkeyboard for analogue leads and vocoder, plus the occasional internal sound.

I am finally starting to understand Kurz-logic, so I program fairly complex setups with odd controllers, and once I get one on the bottom keyboard I can have it adapted for the other two.

E.g., I have setups which are used only to program sounds on the ATCX, or the SE1, or the vocoder or the vp9000,

plus the "live" setups for a song.

Not having to reprogram everything THREE times, just copying patches, is a tremendous time-saver.

Time saved = time spent playing.

Next step, when possible: getting rid of the VL-1 keyboard, find a VL-1 rack, and resort to the kurzes for playing the VL-1 as well.

One less keybed, less hassle with program changes etc.

But I can't just finance the purchase of the VL-1 rack. I need to find the occasion for a triangular trade (or find somebody who has the rack and wants the keyboard)

The additional 351 card is a must.

Only had it for a short while and still learning how to use it.

BTW Love all the pictures guys, some nice stuff you guys have.

Very nice, why did you sell the SSL G compressor? Have been wanting to buy this for the SSL X Rack but other things have come in the way, in particular saving the cash for the Karloff 70 gear list suggestions.
Nice rack mate.

You know you have bizarre taste when you are most impressed with the DVP-1 and VP-9000.

I wasn't actually thinking my little buggers at all, just something sweeter than those Adams for mains. So many lovely choices now. A whole nother chapter of testing and confusing yourself to enter into.....

Yeah know what you mean mate.
Those Adams are okay but so outdated.

I dont use them really though. Mainly use the Sennys HD800, I get better results with these then trying to mix anything with monitors in that horrible room.

Next step for me, new room, new monitors and room treatment as all that gear is useless otherwise.
Cant wait. Okay back to making some music now, chat later mate and have a happy new year buddy!!!!
