With my laptop, headphones, Babyface Pro and Linnstrument, I have a portable studio for traveling. It all fits comfortably in a backpack and all runs off of the laptop power. It is also far more capable than the MPC in almost every regard. Well, the MPC at least served to highlight how excellent my portable laptop setup is!
And yeah, we have a wide variety of different tools available today to suit all our different interests and workflows.
I have no doubt a good laptop can do almost everything all my hardware instruments can do (they are mainly computers in disguise anyway!) but I sit in front of a computer eight hours a day for work, I don't want to look at one when I am playing
Oh, I love hardware instruments! The BC Xerxes sounds amazing and it feels like an instrument. Same with the Matriarch, etc. I just bought my first eurorack case and some modules to put in it. Sounds amazing!
I'm actually still looking for a hardware sequencer that really fits my interests/aesthetics/workflow. I like to play, not program.
Ahhh, Eurocrack- I remember my first case/modules, thinking I will just dip my toe....I have 4 full cases now (500hp+)
I have tried many sequencers with Euro- I have a FH-2 which pretty much lets me sequence with any thing that does Midi and also lets me use my Sensel Morph for MPE input. I also use my A4 (4 CV outs) and AKAI MPC Live II which has 8 CVs (and is the reason I went that way not Maschine+
I highly recommend this for the money- fun and immediate sequencing and a ton of other uses- https://www.thomann.de/gb/behringer_960 ... roller.htm
- I have it and use it in everything.
I am personally waiting for this- I used to have a deluge but sold it, this seems to be the best of all worlds for me personally- https://oxiinstruments.com/
may be one of the best hardware sequencers I have ever seen, lunch price (if you sign up and pay 1E) is expected to be around 450E.
