It's funny you mention that... I've been surfing the dotcom site, thinking "gee... I could do $120/month..."

I know! I could do $240 a month, and eat Easy Mac and ramen , and thus have TWO 22 space racks. www.mojomusicalsupply.com has this really nice green Taurus tolex that would look simply amazing! $135 for 10 yards! I could even use whatever was left to recover my Farfisa, amp, and whatever else needs covering. :lol:

Volt,
I want to get another mixer rack cabinet like Ive got.

I want to have a Voyager in the middle with a rack cabinet on either side. THe cabinet on the left will have the 101, 103, 105 (filter Bank) and underneath that 2 cp251 style units (lets see what Moog ends up making). Beneath that will be the Moog modules.

The left cabinet will be the one that you have already seen with additional Moog Modules.

So the way that it works out on the stand, the Foogers are almost exactly the same height as the Voyager's panel. This way I can tweak with both hands. Whatever synths end up going between those two cabinets just all depends.

Nice idea. I want to have my Little Phatty at a 60 degree angle with my Moogified Farfisa with the Taurus pedals underneath. The two 22 space cabinets will be bolted together in front of the double X stand holding the Voyager OS on an Ikea table. Under the table would be the 8 channel powered mixer, with the two Kustom dual 15" cabinets on either side of the table. Imagine seeing THAT when you first walk in the room. :shock:

Yeah, keyboard amps. They accomodate the highs and the lows, whereas a bass amp covers the lows and a guitar covers the highs.

Voltor,
Why don't you just get a 44 space cabinet then?

Because I can't afford a 44 space system. But I CAN afford to make $240 payments, and besides...a walnut cabinet? How unoriginal. Who has a green tolex-covered modular? :wink:

Just FYI... the synthesizers.com entry system doesn't get you a 22-module system. It gives you room for 22 modules, but only 10 modules -- 13 spaces, I think -- so think of the $240/month building a 22-module system... Think the entry system needs some LFOs, though...

Yeah, I know, Matt. But still. It gets you started. Once I get a starter, I'll add a Q962 and a Q960. The second cabinet I'll fill with filters and oscillators. :wink:
