Dahmer, cannibalism 

I don’t think this could be a worse advertising partnership, unless they specifically advertised Meat Feast pizzas. Might need to work on the Brand Safety there, All4.

Went to the shop for bread and milk. Had to pass the pub on the way. Got distracted.

All ready to go with the Korg SQ1 sequencer. And with some space for more later. I have a Music Thing Modular Turing Machine to be built and I think it’d be perfect in this.

For some flexibility in a small space I’ve include the Disting EX. It has multiple algorithms so can be put to many uses. I included the TMB (Tiny MIDI Breakout). I probably won’t be using MIDI, but it’s not going to be useful anywhere else on its own.

Before the output, I want a filter so I’ve stuck in my Dreadbox Eudemonia. It’s got low and high pass, a VCA, and a mixer section, with CV control over lots of stuff. Also the sliders are a nice deviation from knobs everywhere.

Sticking with the audio source end of the rack I’ve decided to throw my Behringer Brains in. It’s basically a Mutable Instruments Plaits, but more affordable, and has a lot of interesting sounds available from a single module. Having it all in a single module allows for plenty of variety, especially as we can use CV control from Maths to switch between sounds as well.

Moving to the other side, I’ve included the Make Noise Maths module for some modulations.

Starting with the output, I put in my Erica Synths Pico Output. This will allow me to plug in headphones and actually hear some audio that isn’t at level.

New module arrived today, which meant that I was able to start setting up the mini . Will continue in the thread rather than flooding the timeline, but here’s the empty rack waiting to be filled.

Ordered myself a new external out for my setup. Trying to find the opportunity to experiment in the darker, colder, wetter months is hard. I’m going to build a mini rack that’s easier to tinker with of an evening, and to store when not in use. Can’t wait for the Intellijel Outs module to arrive now!

The nitech.online instance hasn’t exactly seen thousands of new users but that’s been a relief for me! It’s still great to see new tooters joining up and old tooters returning to use the instance again.
