Hello everyone
I'm a freelance keyboard playing living in France, and I'm looking to add some modular flexibility to my session/production tools.

My first adventure is a setup that can filter, distort and twist and add delay/rvb, all as clockable as possible. Easily internal clock to precise BPM and easy sync to external midi clock is a must.

My choices in this sketch aren't fixed, more in the line of: I would like a filter here, a preamp here, etc.

Am I overlooking something or is this a reasonable place to start?

Is the 7U (3+1+3) format a good choice?


It might be the right place to start...but if you're doing more live gig work than studio, possibly not. My suggestion would be to come up with a rig that has a lot of these functions pre-wired, with the ability to drop certain specific modules into the architecture as needed. Have a look at Arturia's MiniBrute 2 or 2S, paired with a 3U RackBrute that contains a few 'extras' that're more processing-specific, and see if that sort of basic build seems workable to you.
