The more gear one gets, the more gear one requires.
I ordered a MIDI interface (Miditech MIDIface 8x8 - I could get a discontinued MOTU at a discount, but being a PC user I didn't dare to. The Miditech doesn't require drivers, so I'm hoping things will work fine).

Also ordered cheap MIDI cables in different colours. I think it's smart of Thomann to cover the basics so well. Some articles keep me coming back.

Looking forward to turn my synths all loopy using my HY soft sequencers :party:

Yes... I got a doepfer a-182-1 switched multiple,a-185-2 precision adder and a-156 dual quantizer....
now I realise I need more switches... another adder and quantizer...
then, darn it, more things to send to these units... :pfffff


BTW... Do you already own the HY sequencers?

I think i should get a Behringer MS 101 and pick up an old Boss DR550....take me back to the glory days when I used to churn out 4 or 5 songs in a day on the Tascam Portastudio.

After waiting for 2 months, my Roland SE-02 monosynth arrived. Amazingly compact little synth.
I don't yet have a cable to connect it though. I ordered a USB cable from Thomann (again, I love how competitively priced such items are at Thomann, smart move if you ask me), I'm hoping that will suffice, and I won't have to use the stereo mini jack out.

I use the USB to control it with MIDI from my laptop, a MIDI cable to control it from my Arturia KeyStep, and a 1/8” stereo to 1/4” splitter to take audio into a mixer.

According to Roland, USB "will allow you to transfer both MIDI and Audio data between the SE-02 and your computer".

MOTU are usually really good with older drivers, but alas compliant is better IMO, especially if you're not getting some overtly complex beast like the MTP/AV.

It should. I’m pretty sure I have recorded the audio out via USB.

Pretty. Imagine playing The Black Keys on that.

Spent a day at thomann recently and figured, since I'm there, I might as well check out if the hype around the Chapman guitars is nothing more than hype.

Nope. They are fantastic guitars, and I ended up (after talking to wifey for budgetary reasons :P ) ordering a Chapman ML3 Standard V2 Modern, which should hopefully arrive soon.

Squire Stratocaster / Chapman ML3 Modern V2 / Fender Precision Bass

Formerly known as arke, VladimirDimitrievich, bslf, and ctmg. Yep, those bans were deserved.

Just bought a Waldorf Pulse 2 on eBay. This was not even remotely under consideration, but the price seemed good and I am "slightly" drunk.

And to help understand "slightly", I am 1/2 Scottish, 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Geordie...and grew up 1/2 an hour out of Glasgow before heading to Australia to get lessons in self control... :drunk:
