The power of a synthesizer is not to imitate but to create !!
This is a brief discription of the "studio"
Its a time path with first some pictures overall of an older setup. The last picture is of the situation at this moment.
The table (an old door) with the heavy Kurzweil Midiboard, placed on it the Yamaha DX27 and the Korg Lambda. On top of the Lambda, the Ibanez UE400 analog multieffect and the Waldorf Micro Q . The Alesis microverb III (digital processor) came between them. The Roland JUNO 106 is mounted to the wall.
This was the "Tower"
Labtop 1.2 mHz with Ableton Live Delta
Alesis nanoverb + Kurzweil micropiano
SD systems 4 channel (strip) mixer (analog), sold
Kawai K1r synthesizer
Lexicon mpx100 digital processor
Ibanez DM1000 digital delay, sold
Yamaha E1005 analog delay (BDD devices)
Yamaha E1010 analog delay (BDD devices)
Fotex (spring) reverb 3180, sold
Ibanez RM 60 mixer (analog), sold
The Moogerfooger CP 251 control processor
and the Doepfer Dark Time analog sequencer (it means analog control)
A picture overall of my next setup.
I canged the SD-systems in the "Tower" for a Soundcraft Spirit Rac Pac, I needed more channels.
I moved the DX27 and put the Korg DS8 in place.
And the other side with the the CV controlled equipment, DX27, Roland D2 and the MG1
But later I had to change again the setup because I had some perfomances and wanted to make it some more moveable. I bought some transport flightcases and moved some equipment in there.
In the flight cases I put a MX-8 Midi patchbay and A SAMSON sub mixer and a extra ALESIS Microverb 4, now its more suitable for a gig
And the analog side is extended with the VERMONA Performer MKii, a Deepmind 6 and between them a Roland D2 (sold)
Last most recent picture, after selling the D2, Midiboard and the MX8 Midi patchbay I rearranged the studio again and make it more accesable. Still I own the DX27, but its hidden under the table...
The analog side changed also, Moog LP is replaced by the Moog Matriarch, close to the Dreadbox Hades, NYX, Doepfer Dark Time Sequencer and a Moogerfooger CP251.
Now all my Moogs are lined up. A lot off instruments are MIDI connected and ofcourse there are now CV voltage connected intruments. The Deepmind is placed at the left side of the Performer.
But is a continuous process and here is a wide angle view of my humble studio as it is now. I had to move some equipment to make place for the Nord Electro 3. The DS-8 moved down under the table with the Korg Lambda and the old DX27 is moved below the Table with the Modular. I sold the Sudiocraft Rac Pac (the switsches started becoming bad) and bought a second hand Alesis mixer. I also bought a Mooer Ocean as a additional Reverb (instead of the HOF from TC-electronic)
