Lives for gear

(1) Mixer. Digital or analog? The Roland MX-1 looks really cool but basically locks you into using Roland boxes to get the most out of it. Dunno bout others but the latest Mackie vlz mixers have big mute buttons on every channel. Instant muting is good.

(2) One sequencer brain to rule 'em all, or a series of linked autonomous ones? I've gone the second route, which gives you more flexibility, but can bring technical issues.

(3) Additional fx. More fun, more possible routing trauma.

(4) Ease of use. Elektron Model Samples and Cycles are functionally stripped down compared to their other boxes, but are better set up for live twiddling.

(5) Song mode or no song mode? Another performative decision.
