In that last photo my friend sat on a stool and used his phone to take a panoramic shot of the studio, that's what its all stretched out.

I can imagine the new OB synth will take its place soon ?

You mean in place of the P12? No way, I like it too much, it's different enough from all the other stuff I own that I find it useful. I might get a desktop OB6 and put it off to the side if they decide to make one.

your synth rack with your prophet and all the sound modules it looks inspiring to me.
You everything kind of compact and kind of reachable while playing.

The only downside is that you speakers when infront your synth comes from the right.
That HP printer on top looks very hot lol

That printer is hardly ever on, I might put it somewhere else. Yes if I had an extra set of speakers I might put them on top of the synth rack.

I spot that Alesis Theremin

That is an Alesis airfx, I mostly use it live to give people something to watch instead of just me doing my email on a laptop.  ;D I send it audio and then manipulate the sound with filters or other effects built into that device using the sensor on top. It has some theremin type settings but I never use them, the airsynth had more of that.

That's exactly what it is, I needed something tall for my longer cables, so I took a 2x4 and cut it to the same length as the patch-cable holders, then routed out a hole big enough for the mic stand to fit in and screwed the cable holders to either side. It works pretty well.   :)

Adjustable height too. Very creative.

I've got a third cable holder now, so I think I need to get a 4x4 so I can have all three on there.  ;D Actually I will probably just end up attaching it to the front of the table for shorter cables.

Great space Loren.....love the setup of the midi synth wall controlled by the P12.  I see the KK Audio desk is gone or is the midi synth cabinets part of it?

The midi synth cabinet is another KK Audio desk I bought awhile ago. I still have that other big desk but its sitting in my garage, it's just too big for that room. I'll probably end up selling it.

Looking good....Love distressed finish on the AS cabinet.  8)

Well I bought that cabinet used and it came stained black for some reason. I read about how to remove the stain and get it back to the walnut finish so I started to sand it. Then I realized I needed to completely take it apart to go any further, so it was put in storage till I had more time. But then I pulled it out to move all the AS modules to it figuring I would get it back to walnut at some point when I'm feeling less lazy.  ;D

This relates to Chris23's question. Your modular looks absolutely amazing... but I'm super impressed with what looks like two patch-cable combs screwed to a 2x4 and stuck on a mic stand. 8) ;D

These are some really neat setups.

Slightly off topic: When someone--a friend or acquaintance--steps into your space for the first time, are they awestruck? Or do they think you're completely nuts?

They already know I'm completely nuts.  :o ;D

It depends upon who they are, if they know nothing about this then I get a lot of wows, but my friends who have known me for a long time are use to it.

Not sure if this pic is any better but here's another view of my modular:


I just posted pics of my current studio in the studio thread so you can see the entire room there.

Here is a rather not so great photo of my current modular. I'll try to post something better later.

The photo looks like it's producing a slightly blurry, slightly askew sound.   ;)

That's what happens when you record at the speed of light.  ;) ;D

Same here, I think for the money it's nice, if I didn't already have a bunch of analog gear then I might get one. But I have too much as it is so other people can enjoy it instead.

This is my present system with the blank panels representing a MOTM-440 in MU format, a MOTM Quad LFO and a Blacet Dark Star Chaos. The order of modules is fairly random as I haven't decided on the final layout yet. This modular has been disassembled for a while now because I'm going to paint the mdf cabinets. Unfortuntely , I am a great procrastinator, because this project just keeps getting pushed back.  :-[

Nice system Harry.....perhaps this thread will help inspire you to move forward  :)

Yes now you have incentive to get on it and get your modular done this weekend.  ;)  I was just looking at modular grid and its kind of strange that you can't add MOTM modules to a .com rack. I know lots of people who have both systems. Anyway, great looking system you have there, I can hardly wait to hear what you do with it.

For now I'll just say that I have a MU system with 22 synthesizer.com modules, a couple of MOTM modules and a Blacet Dark Star Chaos. I will keep trying to figure out how to load a pic of mine. I enjoy looking at other's systems.

I use to have a Dark Star Chaos, fun module. At the top of the left side of the page where you made your modular it says "show." Click on that and select "screenshot." Another page will pop up of your moduar, just copy the url and past it here.

Thanks for the pictures, Loren.  It would be great if the spacings between the rubber wheels were adjustable.  Then I could try it out on some of my less conventional stringed instruments.   ;)

Forrest
From looking at the installation video on the Gizmotron site, it looks like the rubber wheels spacing is somewhat adjustable. I'm not sure how much, though.

Yes I can concur that is exactly what they told us, you will be able to adjust them. They will also offer replacement parts like new wheels as they wear out.

Im happily broke, addicted and in therapy ;D :o
Me, too!   ???

Actually I can't afford therapy now that I have a modular.  ;D

Julio, I've been looking at addac's 111 wav player and also their fixed filter bank, they look cool. I've even considered selling my Plan B VCOs and replacing the with their 701 VCOs, they are based on the 921 Moog VCO. One advantage they have over other VCOs is that they have octave switches on the module.

It's been awhile since I've posted any updates. so here are two. My first two releases are now available as downloads on Bandcamp. You can listen to them and perhaps even purchase them here:

Health mix of modules Loren......AS case looks like a complete and solid system.

I'm missing some VCOs for it to be complete. I had some RS90s but they didn't have any fine tuning so were a pain to us so I sold them. I might replace them with the newer RS95s which do have fine tuning now.

I see you have 2 Verbos Multi Envelopes .....interesting

I bought those to replace a quad ADSR that I had that I never used. I figured two dual ADSRs might be a bit more useful.

The Grendel filter caught my eye as Im interested in the Drone Commander 2.

The Grendel filter is a bit of a one trick pony, so just be aware of that when having a smaller system.

And now with all that space where will you go next.....

So much stuff out there now, next purchase will probably be something sexy like a 4 into 1 mixer.  ;D I've been looking at some of the ADDAC System modules, I see you have a few, what do you think of them?

Forrest, I never got a chance to play with a 2500, I bet that was fun. I learn synthesis on a Moog 35 and a giant Buchla 100. It was interesting as they both had different approaches. I really liked the tune-able touch keypad on the Buchla. I'd love to get something like that or the Serge system one.

Here are my two systems:




So the smaller system is just Analogue Systems modules, that was the system I started with. The other system is a mixture of everything else that I have. I use to have most of my AS modules in the larger case, but I decided recently to move them out and put them back in the smaller case since I don't think I will be expanding that system anymore. I also want to get more modules from other companies too, so now my larger system has some room the grow.

(using fake digital oscillators was a big mistake by him on Prophet 12

Nothing fake there, they are real digital oscillators in the Prophet 12.  ;D  Digital oscillators or not the P12 is a great synth, I'm really glad I have one.

My only question mark with the OB 6 is, dave mention "digital effects" then my question is can the digital section be bypassed totally to get a true analogue output ?

Yes you can bypass the digital effects.

New Oberheim Eurorack and sequencer is also a welcome addition. The sequencer looks cool and advanced.

Here's a picture I took:



I really want a gizmotron. looks fun..

I took a couple of photos of the gizmotron, here's Robert Rich giving it a try, attempting to play a normal guitar like a lap guitar:



Here's a close up of the thing:



Another things of interest. Dave Rossum from Emu has started making some eurorack modules. He's redoing an updated LP filter, but the one that is catching everyone's eye is the module which contains the filters from the Morpheus. They all look cool, I want  :)

Yes the gizmotron has little rubber wheels that bow the strings so it should work on an acoustic string instrument as well. I'll post some pictures tonight when I get home.
