How come I always see these guy with these huge modulars but they never release any actual music dispite often superior sound..
it feels like it is only a plaything for them like toys..
If I had more analouge stuff I would make good music.. but right now I have been forced to sell off my converter so I do not even have sound in my speakers anymore.. that sucks
You definitely get the modular=lego set vibe from watching I Dream of Wires and I think that collecting modules and making weird sounds is a pretty great hobby compared to most. I suppose the guitar collectors with great instruments who never release albums would be a good comparison (although they're kind of taking the vintage instruments away from the non-wealthy players).
There's still lots of folks wielding their modulars to make good music though. Living in Toronto, I get to see lots of shows with artists carting in modulars small and large. I love how much weird firepower people can pack into a choice Eurorack.
I'm very sorry to hear you've been parted from your converter. I know how much pure sound means to you. Perhaps you can find a reasonable smaller used unit to keep you working on music until you can connect with your dream unit(s) again. Good luck...
