I am going to update my case soon, this is my current setup. I am currently making ambient type music though I also drift into more experimental areas. My main interest is timbral variation/flexibility, not so interested in pattern/melody based options. The system is for hands-on live performance/improvisation.
This is the update I thinking to make, swapping the A-143 OSC for a Mangrove, adding more modulation (not 100% on Stages), and add some erbeverb (currently use Bluesky reverb pedal). I’m dropping the Ladik quantiser, Dual VCS and 4MS RCD as they don’t get much use. I can put the CVPal in some sort of external box.
Then, after listening to lots of examples of the Mangrove (never tried one) I feel the DPO covers some of the timbral area that it covers, so thought to change to the Telharmonic (though only used one briefly), to give more variation to sound possibilities and drop the extra modulation, though there’s space for something extra, was thinking an o_C or P. New workout put also want to keep it hands-on, though a powerhouse/mini computer module could be interesting.
Things I am still deliberating over;
In the final option, do I have enough modulation, maybe some utilities or …?
I could still drop the erbeverb and continue using the external reverb from the Bluesky, that would leave a lot of space
Any thoughts? Thanks, Alan
