I don’t usually go for gear-centric threads, but I’ve been thinking about this a lot and this feels like the more appropriate place.
Right now I’m using a Teletype and two Ansibles with an Arc and a Grid. I love it.
I’ve never had any of the original Trilogy modules. From what I’ve seen it looks like they still offer lots of functionality that doesn’t exist in Ansible, and based on following the dev threads for Ansible firmware it seems like some of it might be there sometime in the future, and some won’t. I’ve also seen some continued community dev for White Whale (@scanner_darkly).
The biggest functional differences seem to be in White Whale and Earthsea, both of which offer really interesting things. (like WW’s pattern sequencing and play direction; Earthsea’s shape memory and note grid).
I’m considering a third Ansible so that I can run Kria, Meadowphysics, and something for Arc all at once. Or, alternately, I’m considering an Earthsea and/or White Whale. Does it still make sense to add a “discontinued” Trilogy module to the setup?
