Here’s my current 104hp system. Basically combining my MI modules with a newly acquired White Whale for sequencing duties. Also plan on shifting the White Whale out sometimes for a Ripples, when I want to explore non-sequenced, feedback oriented patches.
One very key part of this setup is Veils. It provides enough gain for interfacing with Norns’ line outs, as well as electric guitar. Also I’ll use the 1u headphone tile to provide more gain than what Norns headphone out provides if I want to use my HD600s. This 4u + norns + grids + headphones is the goto travel system now (all packaged up in the 4u intellijel bag).
The 7u-system-on-a-pedalboard has a few new additions–the Verbos Complex Oscillator and Bark Filter. In terms of voices, my goal is to focus on diving deeper into westcoast and analog sound sources than I have in the past. I also have a more sophisticated setup with the pedals now. They run through the two pedal interface modules and then I’ll patch the Rip up as the final out. It may be placebo, but I feel like there’s detail I get out of that module that I don’t get if I run the final outs of the Heat.
I will probably be exploring adding a couple txbs so that I can communicate between this case and my 7u 84hp system, as well as moving stuff around before that so that I can try out polyearthsea, which seems like it will be awesome!
EDIT: also forgot to mention, the Befaco Knurlies are great, highly recommend them. Being able to unscrew two screws at a time (and also being able to move stuff around without a screwdriver near) is awesome.
