Slowly but surely rebuilding it to its former glory. Severely lacking polysynth action at the moment, just the MKS-50 and nothing to sequence it with - Machinedrum in a pinch but painful at best for sequencing polyphonically.

Potentially have a P3 sequencer coming soon. Prolly gonna give me [more] Cirklon GAS. Toying with the idea of another MPC (sold the 1000) but will see how the P3 goes. If I like that as a sequencer then I might just get a rack sampler.

Also need more FX and compression.

Ever thought of maybe getting a drum machine or sampler to add to your arsenal? heh

Nice. Put some jazzy organ under those acid basslines and Push the Squares!

Hmmm.. Now theres a thought! What's sad is I do have a MS2000, Alesis Fusion and Ion not to mention a MS-20 and a mono/poly I bought back in college. I ran out of rooom due to poor planning. Tha celing under the stairs is just over 5 feet. I'll eventually rack a lot of that stuff make more room.. but I'm lazy..

is it hard using the machinedrum at that angle? it looks incredibly painful to me like that

some of you know i'm a crazy man who takes a crapload of gear out to gigs in the middle of nowhere that don't pay worth a crap at all just because he thinks it's fun.

here's a photo from the last gig:

Incredible rig... I wish more of those so called "live acts" should do what you do, instead of just scrolling with the mouse


PS: nice sound you do live...

I love that live setup STG... I think it came up in a Muff's thread recently, but let me reiterate how awesome it is that you deploy three echoplexes in the making of your musics.

thank you.

if more of those live acts realised how much more attention you could get leaving the laptop in the briefcase then it might be harder for me to get attention at these parties haha.

thank you. i actually have a fourth i want to load in there, i need to do some more work to the rig first. i need to build a remote audio switching system (it's a good thing i build synthesiser modules for living!) to select the routing of the keyboard audio in the main rack between mixer and loopers, and also need to build a pair of loopers MIDI control surfaces. yeah it's excessive. whatever. this is what i want to do and i finally get to do it and i love it.

the upper EDPs are a stereo pair, linked through Brother Sync. they are fed from Aux 5 on my M480, which goes from Aux 5 to both inputs of the H3500DFX, and then out of the H3500DFX to the EDPs.

the lower EDP is fed from Aux 6 and returns to a normal channel, which is sent to the M480's subgroup, which feeds the H3000SE.

before a few weeks ago i had a Repeater with a Vortex in the FX loop in the top position, and the beige EDPs were both fed from Aux 6 and returned in dual mono to the aforementioned channel. for my ambient looping i really like having 2 EDPs before the H3000SE because i can make less repetitious textures by using parallel loops with prime relationships, which is one of the Robert Fripp techniques i've been trying to nail for the past 15 years.

in contrast, i use the stereo EDPs for "accompaniment parts" or other things that are more rhythmically defined, like a chord sequence or something.

i pulled the Repeater out not because i didn't like it, but because i couldn't handle the difference in button press behaviour between the EDPs and the Repeater. i also totally prefer just having half/normal speed to the variable tempo/pitch manipulations of the Repeater. the only thing in my whole rig that does timestretching was the Repeater, and the two things i want to keep out of my sound are timestretching and compression. it "dates" my music to the 90s but i'm totally OK with that.

thank you Dave. the Minimoog case has a Blofeld in the bottom. i'll try to post a picture of it from the front. even though it's a beautiful case and is kind of elaborate, it's going to be rebuilt. it barely fits through a door.

S&TG, what's going on with that Q25 under the modular? Are all but one of the keys in a fixed note on position or does one just stick out too much?

Of all the questions that could be asked about that rig... Great tunes, by the way!

thank you!

yeah the Q25 key is sticking up because i dropped it and that key broke. it still functions, so i'm leaving it for now.

the 2 Q25s get merged in the MIDI Time Piece AV and sent to the Doepfer MCV4. i use them to generate a base CV for transposing the sequencers in the modular. Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream did this all the time, Klaus made it more of a performance aspect though.

That's a lot of blue cases. Wonder where that color scheme came from?

S&TG, your live rendition of West End Girls on organ from a few years ago really cracks me up in a good way. I have heard the PSB loved it too. Rev.

Yep, I'm on Win 7 x64. It was a bit of a pain finding a Firewire PCIe card that works but I ended up getting this one and it works perfect:

You can pick up the LMs for dirt cheap now that they've been discontinued. A mate bought one about 3 years ago for AUS$1000, I got mine about 1 year ago for $250.
