as the year isn't over, im also looking to add the morphagene and possibly a delay or reverb module?
Nice :)

I'm waiting to see how 16n Faderbank, CVilization and the successor to Clouds turn out in terms of price/features/demos etc. to figure out what to do next.
ill still have a full row for cvlization and the new clouds. was looking at clouds when it got dropped and ebay went daft on prices. figured id wait on the new one :)
wouldn't mind a few more lfos, preferably some vclfos for a bit more "action"

now im in the position of having a synth i can do many things with, it's a case of just adding glitter now, so it will slow down.
cant see it growing more at the min. maybe changing a few modules in and out, but, never say never! :lol:

I don't know how many times I thought I was "done" with major changes in my modular, but I'm pretty sure I'm close to there again. There's a couple of modules I either need to get used to and make myself more satisfied with, or replace. I want to get into granular one way or the other (so Clouds 2 or Nebulae v2 probably), and I want a super-short 1V/OCT delay for physical modeling and Aalto-like stuff (CG Products Delay1022 seems likely).

yeah, like i said, never say never :hihi:

as for granular, as a granular sampler, im really enjoying the bastl grandpa (even before i add the expander) its simple but really useful. doesn't take up too much rack space and isn't expensive either 8)

I really miss taking lessons from an actual teacher.
On the otherhand. I love melodics. It tightens up my pad and keys playing like no bodies business and takes me into ideas that I would have never thought of on my own.
