Hey, so I have been building a 104hp 4U intellijel case for a bit, and, in celebration of the TXi and TXo boards being available again, am switching things up. My rack has been built around teletype and crow functionality, just because I have found these to be some of the most fluid and flexible sequencing methods. I also use an OP-1 and Z, along with 2 norns and a 16n. Basically, my rack has been a sound design and sequencing tool that has been a lot of fun.
This is what I have been working with for a bit:
Now that I will be building a TXo+ over this next week, mainly for LFO’s and modulation, but also because of some voices I am going to need to make some cuts. As well, on my top row, I am adding an E[x]ist DIY 1U RIP for sending audio out, so I believe I’m going to get rid of the Intellijel Noise for a bit.
What I have settled on is cutting the uO_c for the time being, since I haven’t gotten good enough with my rack to REALLY get the most out of all the tools there or begin to explore them. I thought I would get rid of rings, but now with more modulation and because of my getting an OP-1 as a rich sound generator to resonate through the rings, I’ve decided to keep that in.
This is now what it will look like towards the end of next week:
My main question is, what would be a good option for the 4hp that is now open on the rack? I think I’m going to go to a 7U in the near future, so I’m not really selling or getting rid of anything, I’ve got a uBraids and more to add, but for now, I’m wondering if someone would add something very specific to these areas?
Would it be worth keeping the 1U Noise instead of the mult?
Just curious some thoughts…
It’s also worth noting the rack to be used in multiple ways, one is for live, single take ambient pieces. But It is also helpful and will be used as a sound design device or a synth voice when recording more quantized work within ableton.
