And yes, surely it's oustanding piece of hardware, just not for everyone to use.
He does have some quality kit that's for sure.

I thought the MPC could be the main control of all my hardware, plenty of connections Mushy, it will be fine with a couple of modulars too in future but for now I have enough to jam. Just need to register this thing now and download the software.

Keep us updated on the X. I have a Cirklon coming mid-year but for the same money (less even?) I can get the MPC to use as my centrepiece.

Well I have waited 19 months for a Cirklon so I said f**k it and bought the MPC X.. I think this will last me a decade like my MPC 2000XL did :tu:

It will. Akai are really stepping up their game on the Live and X lately, the new beta shows Ableton integration as well, in standalone mode.

Be forewarned it's not currently allowing more than one MIDI input to one program at a time. Apparently the older models did and some people are losing their mind about it. Beyond that it's pretty dammed cool, and it includes a decent synth and electric piano as well. It makes me think about doing a hardware only project for sure, even if the MPC X and Live are really dedicated surface/ipad computers running a proprietary version of Linux at this point.

Just wanted to share this beast of a PRINTER STAND from old IKEA. It's insane... Makes for a perfect 19" studio Rack module stand, there's extension brackets too, to make it over 5ft. I'm down sizing so it's going. Overkill for the coming new build. People should keep an eye out for the IKEA JERKER popping up, shame they discontinued it, made for good studio desk and extras, what with all the shelving possibilities, add ons.
MSI z390, i7 9700k, Noctua Cooling, NVMe 970 Pro, 16GB 3000C15, BeQuiet PSU, W10, Cubase 10, Avenger, Spire, Nexus, iZotope, Virus TI (INTERGRATED), Yamaha CS2x (Custom Mapped).

Some Eurorack rig pics. I have pretty much come to prefer a component like setup
for Eurorack, with multiple smaller cases instead of huge ones. The smaller twin
cases were custom made for me, and I made other (with the snazzy acrylic back)
to go with them. It's hand made, mostly with 'old school' hand tools, planers, files etc.
Anyway, kind of cool, though I will probably remake it with some fancy hand cut
joinery as I seem to have taken up an interest in that. The case has 2 independent
Eric Synths power supplies in it, which is why there are 2 switches and power inlets.
:D

Very nice!
In terms of space and ergonomics, I also prefer multiple smaller systems. I used to have a 4 row, 432 HP folding rack which was semi-portable. It was fine at the time but now my largest cases are 2 9ux84HP systems which are themselves made of individual 3u racks that can be swapped around.

That said, I've definitely run into power issues which can occur when patching between multiple cases (or patching between modules which are connected to different PSUs). The best solution I have found is to have a common low-impedance connection between the 0v lines on each bus board, which all connect at the 0v terminals on my linear PSUs. I also try to get the output voltage from my PSUs as close to each other (under load of coarse) as possible.
