Ultimately, it's all moot if no music is being made! I'm glad it's done so I can push forward, I have a few ideas now and am excited to get to writing again.
If you look closely, I'm not that fussed with things like cable lengths and screw colours, rack aesthetics, etc. I want 100% ease of use and function. I need good tracking and a simple way of tuning. Everything else, for me, takes away from the music.
I try and organise things into some sort of a logical order, one that makes sense to me, all modulation sources, sequencers at the top of my rack, feeding oscillators below, which in turn feed VCA's and filters below those, that’s basically it, I like feeding control voltages into VCA's and modulating the VCA's with more random sources, to this day, I never know how I got to a piece, it just happens, I like what Legowelt said about his Euro set-up, it’s like a Brian Eno thing, you know, nature, forest sounds, that kind of thing, that’s what it does for me.
I’m with him there!
I think he’s expanded it now though, based on a Synthacon system.
Sequencers? I've got Lifeforms, and I’m getting that Behringer 2500 sequencer, that looks really cool, three rows of eight steps, that can all interact with each other.
