Looking to start small, and choose modules that will work well together while I learn them, and hopefully maintain their usefulness as my system grows. I intend to use a Beat Step Pro as a sequencer (avoiding the need for a midi converter or sequencer module initially, right?). Ultimately I'm working toward something that can be 1) rhythmically interesting/organic, and also be 2) melodic and musical to mesh with other instruments.
I'm very open to thoughts or suggestions. Not sure if I would need a quantizer or anything else? Is maybe MMG or Ripples a better choice than Optomix, IDK? Although I want to start affordably, I'm willing to spend, just don't want an overwhelming amount of gear to learn all at once.
