I've had the PDF of that book downloaded for forever and I still haven't really even looked at it. I would love a hard copy, but it's way too expensive

True bypass analog reading is the only way to go.

I need that gritty paper tone!

But seriously, I just printed out the Ornament and Crime manual so I don't have to look at my computer. (Definitely not abusing work printer privileges here...)

I print all the pdf manuals. Phone is too small for deep reading.

Probably have a Batumi+Poti and a Stillson Hammer mkii for sale/trade very soon if anyone is interested get in touch.

What should I get to fill in the rack on the left?

I'm trying to downsize this to 2 racks total (ideally two 208's, like the Intellijel performance racks) and I realized I need at least a solid 104 dedicated to those drum modules, and then another 104 for all my sequencers (the bottom rack).

Idk which voices I want to bring for potential gigs (lol) either. I love the Atlantis but it is so HP intensive that it really limits options. I'd love a rackmount reverb but I don't think it's "necessary" because I could just use one of my guitar pedals. I was thinking about a Just Friends but it kind of dumbfounds me (as opposed to my Maths which I am very comfortable with).

I thought about getting a second Ansible to go with Arc BUT I don't think I'll need another Ansible given how powerful Eloquencer is.

By the way, just got Eloquencer. Can't recommend this enough. It's like a standalone Elektron sequencer for Eurorack.

If you're trying to downsize, why are you asking about what more you could get?

If you really want to downsize, I would move your essential modules into that 208 case and the skiff and I'd try to focus on using only that for awhile. Try to figure out if you're missing any of your other modules or if there's anything that you don't really need.

Alessandro Cortini talks about this book and it seems like everyone agrees its one of the defacto books on learning synthesis as a whole.

Oooh, that reminds me I need to read that Daphne Oram book, as stripes recommended it on IG at the beginning of summer:

Well what I use at home in the studio != what I would use in a live setting. I want to finish the case off because I have OCD.

Before this setup, I was just using the 3 tier rack on the right with the skiff; then I thought I needed the Atlantis which I wasn't using (instead of getting a SH101) so I moved the skiff setup into the 208 on the left plus the Atlantis and some other non-drum modules. Now I have the Eloquencer so I am revamping the setup to include drums, which takes up A LOT of real estate.

The issue with that is the 208 rack is too thick/high to lay down flat (or even angle safely) and still use it comfortably, so I'm using all 3 of the racks I have. Obviously I'm not going to take all this with me on the road.

I'm still gonna use everything I got when I'm at home. If I'm outside, the Analog Rytm makes too much sense.

Sorry fam. That's one of the few untouchable modules on my setup.

Unless I get a Rainmaker... :picard:

I think a lot of people do this, with maths or just friends or others, and if you don't get it you shouldn't put 400$ on it :lol:
