I’ve been continuing to think about how to get started with modular in the smallest possible way. My thinking has evolved a little. I realized that if I want to use Orca to sequence synths and drums on the computer, I can use Ardcore and the Ardcore Expander to take input from the White Whale and send it back over USB. This leaves me with a very minimal case indeed:

And if I DIY the Ardcore and Expander, that keeps the cost down a bit.

For the case and power, I’m thinking about the Synthrotek Power Lunch. Seems to provide enough power for everything.

I wonder how I’ll fill the remaining HP eventually?

Maybe something like this:
