The idea is for a live rig / production toolbox.
I have about a third of the modules in this rack and hope to complete it by the end of next year. Also have an Akemie's Castle, and what I suspect is a dodgily put together Turing Machine which doesn't seem to behave the way it should. I will keep these in my supplementary 84hp case
Really enjoying using maths and stages for modulation. I think for its size, Zadar seems like a good choice for levelling up my CV modulation as the system continues to grow. Also looking forward to having some simple pitch sequencing with Tirana. IQ can do all sorts of cool tunings - microtonal tuning sounds interesting - and all round seems like a beast. On ADDAC, the transition controller seems to me like it could be a really useful performance tool to shift filters/modulation amounts/times/reverb parameters/timbral shifts/generative shifts etc.
I'm a little concerned about my rhythmic options - Tempi and Klasmata (which is CV-controlled euclidean sequencer) as the main sources of gates. The Basimilus would form the main percussive element, and I could potentially swap Tempi for Pam's. I quite like Tempi's immediacy, although I am yet to really gain mastery over it (practice, and read the damn manual Sam!!).
Not sure about chainsaw as supersaws aren't typically associated with my preferred styles, but it's stereo and polyphonic so it could be interesting use with the LPGs and filters for trance flavours - TBC. Radio music seems like a must for me, but I'm guessing TipTop One could also do the job bringing samples into the mix. Instruo rules. Only had it a month but it's all you could want and then some from a 6hp analog oscillator.
As someone with a background in engineering and production, I wanted to have a fairly comprehensive set of mixing tools. X-Pan and LSMSMSLR allow for stereo play and the quintet again just looks like typical ADDAC beastiness. I send audio to pedals using Sewastopol and although I don't yet have a use for it, it's envelope following functions seem well thought out. Next year I am looking to experiment with cellos, and Sewastopol offers a way for acoustic and electronic to interact.
Personal influences include techno, drumless, hardcore/acid, dark ambient, electroacoustic, psychedelia, post-punk and jazz. Pretty much everything my father would describe as 'drug music'
Would love some thoughts. Am I missing something obvious? As previously, my only major concern is gate sequences. I may find that piano-roll style beat programming is necessary. Maybe that could be answered with a beatstep pro. Pitch sequencing is also limited, and while I am not overly concerned with melody or complex pitch sequences, it may just be handy to have the playability of a keyboard e.g Keystep. I want to be quite hands-on, but with generative elements as well.
Long way ahead for this, but I have been planning and researching my eurorack system for around 3 years, only in the last year have I actually started building it.
Looking forward to your response :)
