    One of these days I'll get my hands on one of those newfangled digital cameras . . .



    I've undergone a rethink and reorganization of my gear lately. I've taken out some stuff that I never use and eliminated 12 rack spaces of unnecessary stuff (lots of those spaces were already empty, mind you). I'm really enjoying making noise with this new setup. I also pulled a huge pile of cable out of the system, and that combined with my new patchbays has really cleaned up my noise issues.



    My cases from top to bottom:

    Furman RR-15

    Roland SRV-3030D

    Lexicon MPX-500

    T.C. M300

    Line 6 Echo Pro

    2xRNC's

    Nord Micromodular & ART TubePac (why? why!?)



    Furman RR-15

    MAM Warp9

    Electrix FilterFactory

    Behringer 5-band Parametric Squeakulizer

    Behringer Composer Pro

    Sherman FB2



    2xNeutrik patchbays

    4 space rack drawer



    And on the desk:

    FR-777

    Evolution UC-33

    Machinedrum

    Behringer MX 2004A mixer

    Zoom MRS-1044 hard disk recorder



    Alesis M1mkII monitors

    Miditech Midicontrol keyboard



    Others:

    Fender P-Bass Lyte

    SWR Workingman's 12

    Fulltone Bassdrive

    EH Bass Microsynth

    EH Qtron

    Accoustic guitar from China



    What I'm liquidating (anything you want?):

    Nord Micromodular

    Waldorf Pulse

    Zoom RT-323

    Ultimately, the MRS-1044

    A bunch of Boss pedals

    Fender American Std. Fat Strat

    Fender Stage 100 (aka LOUD AL)



    I'm going to put this dough toward a laptop, since I need one this coming year anyway. That will eliminate the MRS-1044 from the desk, and I can finally say goodbye to my P3 500. YES!!!
    When next the GAS strikes, ask yourself, WWDLPD?

      AfroRouge,

      I would love to hear a track of yours (machine drum, 777, and sherman!)...if you ever want me to host one for you....lemme know!

          Thanks, it took some searching to find this customized Ikea special, but it was cheap and functional. Guess I need to update my picture as I have also just recently added an FMR Audio - Really Nice Compressor, which sounds pretty good so far.

            Dude, you'd be lying if you didn't admit to seeing red blobs whenever you move away from your workstation!

              Ha ha ha, yea I was wondering when someone was going to say something, Actually they came with the place, and I've never bothered to change them, It's usually a lot darker in there so much so that I don't really notice them, but the camera flash made them look pretty bright in this picture. Of course I can always pull them up and then they are not seen at all.

                Thanks, S6. Some things are coming together for me now, so maybe sometime soon. The last couple of years I've not been creating much in the way of tracks, mostly just enjoying patching. My recording facilities are horrible (the MRS-1044 is meant for singer/songwriters, not electronica, and my computer is useless) so I've spent my time learning synthesis. I'm setting out to create some tracks in the next few months, though.



                The UC33 hasn't been very useful to me until now, because Sounddiver and the separate utility for my AMT8 won't work anymore, so I can't reconfigure my midi flow to fully integrate it the way I'd like. I've also been moving away from using the Micromodulars, which was a major reason I got it. I plan to set up a template for controlling parameters on the Machinedrum, and another for controlling my effects units, especially the Line 6. In general I like the feel of the unit. The sliders are reasonably nice, and it looks cool enough in the dark. I'm glad I got it, and I plan to start using it more as time goes on.

                          can you compare the pads to mpc pads?

                            Missing from the pic is Apex stand, Peavey XXX head and Marshall 2x12 and 4 x12 cabinets at the band rehersal space.



                            Check out that pitch on the Triton LE. That's the only way I've been able to compensate for that horrible keyboard action. Oh and I HATE wires (notice the spagetti?)

                                not that I have anything to speak of, but am gonna use my webcam and grab a shot when the BX8 monitors are installed. Then at least i start to look like I am doing something more than just playing games.



                                (pst btw.. I asked in hardare but no luck, how is the new e-mu emulator x card? going to replace my audiophile 2496)
