I just read the gear manuals. Try reading the two for a Korg Triton if you have trouble sleeping and soon zzzzzzs.

Sold my bed to make room for more modular. Sleep is not longer relevant.

ive been bringing my microfreak and a battery pack around the haus with me since i got it a few weeks ago its so much fun to play and make patches. someone compared it to the op1 in the microfreak thread and although lacking the 4 track i get the same feeling i missed after selling my op1. this a digitakt and h9 im starting to feel is such a great non modular travel or out of the studio kit
I've had a Digitakt by my bed from time to time, but I've been missing something to sample. Actually been thinking about getting a MicroFreak for this exact purpose. Seems like they'd be a perfect fit.
yeh its a stellar combo especially being able to have a couple channels of the digitakt for seq midi cc. the microfreak has nice midi implementation and for the price its really a no brainer. i think it can sometiems fell a tiny bit thin but with a touch of an effect it really shines. i have been thinking of getting some of these Ripcords to power the digitakt so it can run off a power bank as well.

I dont have a bedside setup, because i‘m the type of guy who goes into bed and instantly sleeps but i‘m thinking about a doepfer lc1 case for couch-jamming.

I have quite a lot modules i rarely use because i dont have enough time to really explore them, so i think i‘m gonna buy me a lc1 and put some modules into that.

Recording with iphone should somehow work i think?

I HAD a couch in the living room, roughly where the Legend and Hurricane are now. A comfy chair was recently added, but its future is uncertain...
My mouth laughs, but my heart weeps...

It's now my Gotharman Spazedrum. It's so small and complete for a mobile funtime.

For beats I've been using an sp16. Great for more ambient sample weirdness as well.

lately though, I've been using this dual Fourses into a LYRA 8. Great for drones mixed with gestural stuff. Lots to explore and always surprising.

what kind of exciting synths are these besides the lyra? looks exciting, never seen before

Decided to make a study/bedbuddy case out of this Pittsburgh EP-96. This is the 2nd iteration, where I removed the Verbos Multistage & added in the Quaid, RND step & RCD. Makes a pretty awesome little drum machine. I never guessed that Prism would be so sick for drums

I've used the Digitakt as a couch/travel box for a while now and like it in that format.

Hoping to step into a M8 tracker this year though.

It's a DIY design based off of the Ciat Lonbarde Paper circuit for Fourses. The Original Fourses PC was laid out and improved by user Flux monkey, then offered as PCBs here:
https://www.fluxmonkey.com/fluxmerch_gear.htm

I grabbed two and then set to work making a banana layout.

I laid it out in a 17" hammond boat with large listening nodes( discs) and 6 position rotary switches that change the speed on each oscillator for each side.

It's stereo with a summing jack on the back if needed to sum to mono.

I made a pedal version of MI Rings to process it through for some wild, textural, performance stuff. Still finding completely unexpected sounds a year or so in.

Depending on what I am working on, one of the following items is usually nearby at home to develop song ideas outside of the studio:

* Elektron Analog Four MKII Black
* Elektron Analog Rytm MKII Black
* Native Instruments Maschine+
* Pioneer DJ Toraiz SP-16
* Roland MC-707
* Roland TR-8S

If needed, I also connect an Arturia Keystep 37.

DX-200 recently, but thinking about trading for a Digitone. There are quite a few excellent sounds in the DX, plenty of algorithms, and the simple sequencer is a good jumping off point for ideas, but the DN offers a lot of functionality.

I relate to this; I read the Korg microSAMPLER manual. It's about 70 pages, must have read it twelve times by now. And when that gets old I read the Secrets of Dance Music Production, the Dance Music Manual or Music Theory for Electronic Producers. There's a lot of ideas in that tiny library.

My Couch setup Is a steinberger spirit, a bliss factory and a microcube. All powered from a palmer batpack. Fun for days. Now I just want to find a fitting delay

a 50W marshall combo (doubes as a seat), a Sonicware Liven 8-bit Warps, a Roland PMA-5, and a Yamaha E333 at the moment.

Now that Drambo has been made a AUv3 host it’s game over. One of the best “grooveboxes” in any format (hard or soft). The on going development has been impressive also. Quite exited to see how far he takes it. He recently even add an “External CV Instrument” for controlling CV gear.

Super excited to try the cv tracks with multiple outs.

What do you feed it from the couch? Or are you using samples that you have already loaded? (My OT is almost always connected to something else, but I know that’s not how it has to be done.)

OP1 travels all around the house. Bought it on a whim few years back when I was prepping an “intro to synthesis” for elementary kids and figured I’d just list it back a few weeks later. Kids love it and I still do!

Akai MPC Live is my mobile go to, the batteries last quite a while and no shortage of idea generating firepower.
