The goal is to use this from the couch, so it should be capable of running standalone.
For me that means it should be able to handle a 4 "voice" drum-kit along with bassline, lead & digital fx.
By "able" I mean it should be able to handle the vanilla arrangement but most of the time I'll be using it for something more experimental.
Modules I've already own are
- Arturia: Rackbrute, Minibrute
- Bastl: Noise², SkisII, Quattro Figaro
- TipTop: Z4000 VC-EG
- Music Thing: Startup
- Antumbra Dual VCA (2x)
- Grayscale: Microcell
- Nerdseq & IO Expander
- CalTrans (convinence)
- Twin waves (Desert island osc)
- Filter 8 (Desert island filter)
The rest I want suggestions:
BIA: For compactness sake and I like the sound, I don't like the missing env out
Entity Bassdrum: Open for alternatives, again whatever module does the bassdrum should have an env out.
Considering the Loquelic Iteritas Percido instead of both. (Or another full synth voice that can take the part of a 4 part drum kit)
Cold Mac: I want analog logic and this seems to be the HP king for that.
Bastl Timber: This or ultrafold, can live without a wavefolder if dynamic distortion can come from elsewhere.
What I still miss (willing to let go of the Bastl Modules)
Compressor, but I'd like it to do more if I get one perhaps with integrated filter. Otherwise ducking with vcas is fine.
I've decided that I don't want to invest the HP for Maths. (I don't need two slew Limiters if I have two powerful sequencers that can output arbitrary cv)
But I am thinking about getting extra attenuverters considering Livestock Electronics: Felix
But perhaps there is something like just the middle part of Maths?
The ideal module I'm missing would be like:
Something with 4 cv in and 16 cv out and knobs or switches to dial in various relationships between them like adding, subtracting, offsetting, multiplication, min, max, s&h, etc.
At best around 10hp
In the long run I'll probably get a second case for overflow so no biggie.
Module costs is fine as long as it isn't cwejman (no quarrels if you like it)
I have no problem buying modules which fall into easy to learn, hard to master category.
Any suggestions are welcome!
