Roland MC-505.. I've never played with anything like this before. There are a few missing pixels on the screen (so I got it cheap), however it seems you can iron the connector to fix that..


Upgraded my Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister-5 to a Tubermeister-36.. the lack of effects loop on the 5 kinda killed it for me. The 36 also has MIDI control and built in valve testing etc.. plus looks even prettier!



Behringer FCB1010 MIDI foot controller. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to use this for yet. I originally wanted one as a controller for my Kemper.. and got a custom chip to turn it into a dedicated Kemper controller. But then the Kemper foot controller came out. It may be possible to use both (if there's a reason to) since the Kemper one uses cat-5 for power and control..


Roland Boutique A-01.. difficult to pass upon with these clearance prices at the moment. It was about £83 from Thomann..

Two months ago I bought an Eventide H9 Core, thinking that it would have been enough for me with just a few additional algorithm (I was interested mainly in the H919/949 harmonizer effect)... I was so wrong! As soon as I put my H9 Core on one of the mixer send, it become my reverb box, so I started thinking about getting another one, in order to have a spare to use as an insert... So i took the plunge on a H9 Max.
It's expensive and probably overkill for me to have all those algorithms, but at least now I don't have to think about which additional algorithms I should get without breaking the bank...

And you know now that with buying a Max that your other pedal becomes a Max now, too? By having one Max, you can register up to 3 more Cores and they will all have Max algos as well.

Yes, I know! Immediatley after registering the H9 Max and updating its firmware, I used the restore purchase function on my H9 Core to enable all the algorithms.

Awesome! An SK50, those are quite rare and that looks way bigger than my SK30 which is the exact same size as a CS70M.

I'm shocked it looks so much bigger than a SK30

I've used these things for the last 20+ years now. ATM I have two, one in 19" branded "Redson" and labelled in French.
Yes, within the limits of old bucket-brigade delays it is good and has its uses.
There is also a stereo-ish version.

Cheers,
Bert

I said no more after the MPC Live and laptop earlier this month, but I found the sweet temptation of the Matrixbrute too much to ignore. A beautifully built synth and sounds stunning too! This thing is HEAVY!

Now I am content for awhile. Must resist REV2. Maybe will pull on the consumerism hat once again whenever the Quantum finally lands.

Meanwhile, plenty of funky sound designing to be had. May was too slutty for me (if a thing exists). I did pass some intense licensing tests for my job, so that was my rationale.

Oh well, stuff happens.

Nice.

Now, I offer you two ways to spend more money: buy a second unit and pan them hard left and hard right (big sound, I gather), or wait for one of these to come onto the market:

Drool. That programmer is to die for. And, yes, I should buy a second unit.

There is also a small Matrix controller by Stereoping. Readily available.
It comes in different colours/firmwares - I have the "8000" version for DW/EX-8000.
But I'm waiting for the big one as well (got a Matrix-6)...

Found a used K&M Spider Pro on the local Craigslist for a good price and needed another stand. I don't know why the pics were rotated counter clockwise though.

Congrats! I'm curious, how stable is the Voyager XL on the Spider? Do you get much side-to-side wobble?

This is a very temporary setup as I'm moving this month, but it seems very stable. Not quite as rock solid as my On-Stage Heavy Duty Z Stand Pro, but I'm putting the Oasys 76 back on the Z stand. Plus my background as a player is Hammond/synth so I'm not heavy handed like many piano players.

So I wrote this one off as unobtainium, but guess what showed up on eBay and I bid on immediately:



Between this and the Feedback 106, I've finally got the eurorack AX60 voice I always wanted. All hail the CEM3394!

Lucky you. I sold both my original Dark Energys when I moved up to a full A-100 System figuring I could just replace them with A-111-5s.

Ensoniq DP4. Only 2U, but it's HUGE!

Hoping that the 170 euro price means it's not b*gg*r*d...
