I am pleased to inform you that in one week from today I will have my dream Eurorack system almost completely assembled

It's a "Mostly Mutable" system, which I've been trying to put together since forever ago. Now that Emilie is getting out of the game, I've decided it's now or never, so I've sourced 208hp (in two rows) of Mutable and XAOC gear.

It'll be sequenced by Marbles and Frames, modulated by Peaks, Tides, and Batumi (with Poti), voiced by Plaits, Braids, and Rings, and effected by Beads, Clouds*, and Kamieniec, with Maths, O/A/x2, and Out v3 assisting with various functions.

This is a big milestone for me, because I sold off _all_ my Mutable modules and most of my modular gear when my father died last year. I lost my ability to create and blamed it on my gear when, well, there's a much more obvious reason.

But I'm back, baby!

It's a pretty "modey" system; Batumi, Clouds, Rings, Plaits, and Braids are all very much N-in-1 modules, which means that it's sort of meta-modular. Each patch will involve selecting which instruments I want to use, both by patching and by setting modules' modes.

Lots of fun secrets hidden in these modules, too, like Kamieniec's built-in LFO stage which can just be used as a normal LFO.

Oh, also worth mentioning Ripples! It's my favorite filter of all time, and I'm going to have _both_ v1 and v2. Ripples is a gorgeous synth all by itself - you can self-patch FM, play it like an oscillator, and more - but with two of them and a phase rotator in Kamieniec, I'm going to have tons of fun just building self-playing all-analog patches.

@tindall oh yes, i also have both a v1 and a v2 ripples and they’re super super fantastic!

@tindall i also have an attenuverter between them (a befaco one) to play them ‘linked’, which is super fun, and i am absolutely gonna rebuild it - or build a new one - someday with a big smooth fancy rheostat knob ^__^

those filters, esp the old one, do just fantastic FM too, i think i use them way more often as creative audio sources than for ‘filtering’

also your rack sounds faboo!! super excited for you!! 💙💙💙

@prin holy shit that's such a good idea! I'm gonna rearrange stuff to do that I think

And, thank you!
