I looked up DNGR and I am super impressed. Their cases look amazing. The light on the top is genius.

jia. i asked Ruiner about his, talking to him, checking Ilya's site and chatting with him was PLENTY to make me jump on one.

i love the light, love that it closes patched, don't mind giving up the 4 hp for the light control. just EXCITED.

This comes out tomorrow and I am excite.

For me, it will go directly into the rack. Then the rack is completely full and I'll have to decide if all the pieces should stay in the rack. One piece which is not staying in the rack is the BASTL ABC which has a broken channel A (volume knob no work). I don't know how to fix a module.

Oh my goodness the Chimera is cool.

I haven't been using my modular enough recently. :( Want to formulate big plans but need to understand what I'm missing and where I want to go first!

DAMNIT. Malgorhythm just got here, Wogglebug and Quadra and Keystep are supposed to hit tomorrow, annnnnnnnnnnnd i have no audio interface. i sold my K-Mix to fund grabbing a Focusrite 18i20, but i just sent out K-Butts, and the other won't get here until Monday.

I DID NOT PLAN THAT VERY WELL.

.... i mean, i have a Komplete Audio 6 as backup, but it's..... finicky. and only 2 ins. so. hurmph.

off to try getting that working now.

Deepmind sounds pretty good in all the demos I've heard over the internet. I might grab the 6 voice at some point. I'm waiting to see how well the hardware holds up though. Only had limited experience using one of their bass practice amps 12 years ago. Sounded like ass. Glad it wasn't mine.

But I have no use for a giant ass multi effects unit at this point.
If someone has a 14hp max, reverb and delay with some cool patch options. Maybe. Someday I might check out a Clouds. Even that I'm only partially interested in.

have you looked at Warps? with the Parasite loaded it does INTERESTING. THINGS.

sigh. yeah. my "backup" audio interface is fried. or something. can't get it to work. meh. weekend to fuck with bass noodlins.

also, i am torn. Focusrite that's on the way should be tasty with modulars. pads on inputs, supposed to not peak even without them. gooooood.

but i kind of want to grab a Zoom L12, and if it can handle modular levels without attenuation, send back the Focusrite. it sucks that the L12 records pre faders like the K-Mix, but it DOES record multi track post fader to the sd card recorder. sooooo.... the times i want to record jams/ideas that incorporate fading and muting i would have to take an extra step, but still have the option.

plus, 12 inputs mo bettah than 8.

and this would let me NOT grab a pair of Pragas, leaving me 40 extra hp to grab a TipTop Zed 8000, a dedicated quantizer for it, and have a little extra for SUMPHIN.

i.... think that's how i want to roll?

It's 10HP and has no reverb but the Chronoblob is an excellent delay. Syncs to a clock flawlessly, feedback path accessible and a very cool option to interpolate the delayed signal when changing delay time, which means no pitch shifting (though you can get that usual behaviour with the switch in the other position). I really don't regret getting mine. That + a Pico DSP makes a great 13
HP effects section...

Yeah, I've been looking at the Chronoblob. I have 22hp left. I really want a small stereo mixer an more utilities.
The Xerest Pola is a 6hp, 3 channel mixer with mutes, stereo out, and headphone jack. Simple and small.
Extra Mullet is 6 hp and looks like a cool mult that can mix signals of the 4 inputs.
SSF Tool Box, 6hp because utilities.

But, Erica has a new panning mixer 14 hp. 4 channel, 1 of those channels is stereo. CV panning for only channel 3, headphone amp with master and headphone volume. 1/4" outs.
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/erica-synths-black-output-module-v2-

So if I went that rout I could still get the Extra Mullet and Tool Box, but I would have to get rid of the Optomix in favor of an LXD. Or a Scan and Pan instead. But I would really enjoy having a headphone amp. Which I could still fit one in my 1U.

Or I could do Xerest, Tool Box and Chronoblob. But as I do have two effects loop to work with in my rig.

Or Extra Mullet, Tool Box and maybe one of those 10hp Rebel Technology Mixers.

Still a lot of things to think about.

So i'm hoping some more demos does it justice, because the demo that was up just seemed thin as duck, and I see no reason whatsoever to get that over the akemis taiko or noise engineering BIA.

But it looks cool and seems to have all the options, so hopefully the demo was just poo.

Yeah I looked at the features and was like "want", then their demo left me a bit cold. I only jumped around and assumed they got into some better sounds at some point because how can it not but maybe I'm wrong and it's just all bad somehow.
