I finally found a Roland MSQ-600 (CV memory sequencer) and a Waldorf Pulse (I used to have one and stupidly traded it off for an Oberheim SEM). I need to be done buying things for a while, until Moog offers me the chance to buy a reproduction of their original Moog Filter.
That's too bad - but you missed your chance anyway. I got a offer within 5mins of posting to trade up for a Bontempi Minstrel with 4 broken keys! I will do the repairs myself and absolutely cannot wait to let rip on her, chords and all - something i doubt even your behemoth is capable of doing! :wink:

Good luck with the Moog filter - I noticed alot of folks around are hoping Moog break into the modular world, some have even tried modding units like the Minitaur to fit into their racks with good results.

This is the thread I've been looking for!
This is the first time in years I've been happy, having a non-working studio has been endless frustrations! It just gets me down that I can't just play! Well now I can!

Eric,

Nice set up. You do need a Mellotron for your 70's reg.

I write music for a living and i dont have a ton of space so everything i use, ive had to be quite strategic about how it will assist, fill in gaps in sound pallet etc.
I use cubase Pro 8 as my main composing software coupled to a Win 7 8 core Haswell E X99, 64gb ram, about 5 hard drives/SSD
So all in i have a huge amount of sample libraries and a few favourite soft synths like Bazille which gets a decent amount of action

All this runs through a UAD Apollo as my interface. Monitors are Focal CMS65's and ref headphones AKG K702's

For hardware i use a Virus TI2 as my overall main controller and obviously for its synth duties.
Roland D50 (more for my own nostalgia kick)
Roland JP8000 In white.
Roland JV1080 with Vintage card (again more nostalgia but its still a great pad and FX maker)
Moog Sub 37 Tribute (YAY we got a Moog in there lol)
Nord A1r
Roland Aira TR8 and TB3.
Novation Bass Station II (although this has been largely phased out by the Moog so will probably go)

Warwick Corvette Bass
Musicman Stingray 3EQ model Bass
Hapi Tongue Drum
Violin

I love my job, and i love using hardware intergrated into the setup. All of which is synced to cubase for rock solid timing for arps and LFO's.

If you have an image hosting server like flickr or images on facebook you can copy the image address from there and insert the [ img ] and [ /img ] bookends on there.

Or in some instances you can click on upload attachment and do it that way.

Let's see what you got.


Cool Pic, JS!

I used to have 5-tiered stands but they proved to be too tall. They were replaced with 3-tiered stands on each side of the master MIDI controller (Kurzweil MIDIBoard). Besides being easier to tweak sounds, I like the sightlines not being blocked. I moved them inward on the flanks so I could play them while playing the MIDI controller and even the top boards on both sides are a comfortable reach.

The synth system. I placed the taller stands at the rear of the layout since sightline is not a concern there. The companion subwoofers for the monitors are under the Polymoog. Since bass frequencies are largely radiant it was not important to have them directional. Subwoofers are an absolute necessity for punchy drums and bass synths.

I knew I could not fit all the synths within reach of the MIDI controller so I had to compromise. I put the synths requiring minimal tweaking that can be MIDI controlled behind me. MIDI retrofits are planned for the T1 and FVS, unfortunately there is no possible MIDI retrofit for the Polymoog. The Polymoog was my first Moog and my first polysynth and although being outclassed by the other polysynths it is the only board I kept for sentimental reasons.

It was not possible to have the Taurus pedals on the floor in any playing position by the MIDI controller. Since they are MIDI controlled, that is why they are behind me. Not shown is a Taurus 2 controller that I am retrofitting as a MIDI controller for the pedals. The Taurus pedals are actually very solid on the Standtastic stands and still a comfortable reach. The Source and Taurus pedals are the simplest synths to tweak and will need less tweaking as I build my library of patches, so they didn't need to be perfectly accessible. I would had liked to put the FVS up front but it is too big and I couldn't find a tier arrangement on the shorter stand near the MIDI controller to my liking - in order to have a synth on a tier above it and still access the controls on the SEMs, the FVS would had protruded too far forward into the limited leg room.
