Beautiful setup, Cane Creek! So many questions, but I'll limit it to these three if you have a moment:

1. What keyboard stand is that (holding the Matrix Brute, etc.) and do you find it supportive enough to use with something with pads like a Novation Circuit?

2. What about that stand holding the Elektron device by your Eurorack?

I can tell you've put a lot of thought into the ergonomics of your space. That keyboard table stand in particular is a thing of beauty!

1. Rack = Jaspers 170‑4‑150b.
According to Jaspers the bottom shelf supporting Matrixbrute is fine for 40KG, the horizontal single bars above are each ok for 15kg, would hold a circuit whilst you bang away at it no problem.

The Jaspers rack is new i only got it during this lockdown, before that i had a sofa there, i always wanted a sofa in my space for when friends visit etc, but in reality i only used it on a wedneday evening to watch sonictalk and its rare i have friends over (everybody is working themselves to death me included )
So i kept looking at the sofa thinking thats gear space , i had most of my synths unconnected on shelves with this idea that i grab whatever synth i want to use and hook it up on my desk, but in reality that just doesn't work everything feels like an effort so stuff just gets left on the shelves (ornaments)

So now flick one switch and everything on the rack is instantly available in my DAW, much better set-up as everything will now get used without feeling like a chore.

You can get those jasper racks with 6 tiers (6d-150B) which i almost bought, but doing a bit of research i found people saying 6 tier are fine for storing your synths but if you want them angled so you can see and use them you end up losing some tiers because of the space you have to create, thats when the 170‑4‑150b looked a far better option for my setup.

2. the little stand for the A4 i just knocked up out of some wood i had in the garage

The cardboard tube you can just about see in the background is my Aphex twin umbrella (windowlicker) its not been open yet as opening them in the house is supposed to be unlucky

Thanks! I've been looking at various Jaspers and K&M stands (and patchbays and a desk) during this lock down too with the same ergonomic aim, to have everything immediately playable. I don't currently have surface area or audio interface inputs for everything that I want permanently setup. Of course, it's a pretty trivial problem I'm trying to solve in the grand scheme of things, but I can't help myself.

And I love that you have that umbrella! I had 2 Aphex twin t-shirts and a Warp records t-shirt in college. But I rotated through them pretty much non-stop until there wasn't really any shirt left to wear. You've reminded me I need to also step up my AFX memorabilia. XD

Finally, I listened to a few of your tracks yesterday after gawking at your synth cave — great stuff!

Damn shame I don't live close enough to stop by chill on the sofa you used to have, seriously, but that stand is tits and a lovely improvement.

input i have a clarett 8 pre with 2 mixers going into it, a Rane SM82s line mixer on my desk and a Yamaha MG12/4 on my rack.

The Yamaha mixer i bought a few years back from a girl at a car boot sale for £20, she told me it was her Mam & Dads they sang in pubs for years, you could tell as it stunk of stale beer and cigarettes

I'm currently making a track with just a 1988 Yamaha PSS-680 what i got from a boot sale for £3 ...... less is more..........

Oh yeah, definitely across the pond. Was just saying, if it weren't so far away, I'd have loved to drop by and kick it on the now gone sofa...

Managed to reconfigure by mounting the MS101 on the desk, freeing up a slot above to the Juno for the JX-3P. Need to tidy up some wiring though.

A question for @ mothership . The "logic" of your setup is admirably clear, with a handful of very carefully chosen hardware pieces to complement your ITB stuff. I assume the Mini and the One are different enough to not feel like overlap?

If I were dropped into that (phenomenal) space and could make a single change, I might consider swapping the One for the River. Has that (or something like it) ever crossed your mind, or are you happy with the two Moogs?

The River sounds fantastic and I have great respect for Baloran. Having said that the ONE is for me closer to the polyphonic analogue synthesizer I am interested in. Its flexibility brings the ONE for me close to a "perfect" polyphonic analogue synthesizer. Although there are still points worth to be criticized. However, I really like the ONE and use it quite often. For example here in this video:

I dont know if it matches your esthetics but this really helps me with my 4k.
I'm able to roll it around and angel it in a comfortable position.

I've actually ordered exactly the same stand several weeks ago. But Thomann postponed the delivery date significantly, not only once and the reasons remain unclear. So I cancelled and ordered the one from Quiklok. This one seems to be not as good as yours, but at least they can deliver. It should arrive next week.

Regarding the MPC4000. I've had the LM1 (unbelievable sound), the MPC3000 (still the MPC I love the most in regards to sound and groove), in the studio we used a MPC60 (probably Roger's best MPC, unfortunately with too small RAM) so at the MPC4000 is my favorite. And it is an amazing tool. It stands not by accident in the middle of the room.

BTW, the Minimoog and the ONE don't share many similarities. With the exception of the company's logo of course. ;-)

That‘s Nonlinear Labs‘ C15 synthesizer.

Thank you, I will check it out. The Moog One sounds are perfect with those natural landscapes. Switzerland is so beautiful, seeing the Eiger (and Mönch, and Jungfrau...) for the first time was quite an experience for me.
