Sorry, which one are you referring to?

.
sadly, probably my next hardware purchase will be more like this :cry:
I see plenty of room for speakers!
ive found a company that does them with mp3 player and speakers built in :o
I think this the only way to do it right

My Mutant Brain module still isn’t right, stops receiving MIDI as soon as the DAW transport starts playing. As I mainly want to use it to receive sequenced MIDI and clock from the DAW it’s become an 8 hp chocolate fire guard.
I think it’s out of warranty and Hexinverter support forum is full of tales of woe - seems to be one support guy who rarely visits - so I cut my losses and ordered a Flame module that also offers 4 channels of MIDI to CV and gate plus clock out.

Edit: The plot thickens... it works fine in Studio One, just not in Reaper. Hmmm.
My guess is that the DAW cached a setting from ages ago.

Nice rob congratz! be sure and post some modular tracks. Dunno about you, but i found modular to be very interesting, in particular the performance aspect of music on the fly.
Was a whole new ballgame for me. Always interested in others takes on it. :tu:

Yeah once I get everything I need in the case I'll post some live stuff. I wish I'd gotten in to modular years ago instead of pissing about with software synths etc.. still love my hardware but anything is possible with modular IMO
It's all coming together here, just need a few more things. I should have a nice 12u 104hp setup by summer.

Iv'e mastered the Quad Drum now I just need a random sequencer for that now and I'm thinking about the TTA Trigger Riot. Thought about the Pam's I'm sure it's cool but is kind of static IMO and I want hands on control. I may even buy another QD I like it that much.

PS
About on the fly stuff... exactly that.. once you hit play you've got to improvise and jam. Who needs a song mode? Not me lol I am the song mode. :lol:

Like I say, wasted so many years on useless soft synths using a mouse, making Mickey Mouse sound banks for various synths drenched in FX and selling that shit that wouldn't even work in tracks TBH.
Glad I don't have to do that shit anymore and just focus on my modular journey.

Oh and I just ordered the Acid Rain Chainsaw and Maestro... that''s gonna give me some pure Techno :tu:

Awesome, can't wait to hear what you do with all of it. :tu:

*I like the Acid Rain stuff, I have their switchblade module (discontinued unfortunately).
Super handy though imo...

*Regarding additional sequencing, you might have a look at the DNIPro DOT, I have to rate it
very high for drum triggering, I have 2 of them actually, which I see as the minimum, but
you don't have to get them at the same time at least. Anyway, Super cool :tu:

*Also check out the Flux Sequencer from IO labs, that thing can trigger drums to the level
of pseudo granular if whatever you are triggering is fast enough (I use the Rossum Assimil8or).
There is really nothing else like it in eurorack.

Maestro is a game changer, imo. (but, 'attenuators' are your friend) :tu:

The plan is to have x2 104hp cases ready to jam by August. Done alright so far getting all my drums n sample + sequencer modules sorted within about 5 weeks. Now I'm waiting on those 2 Black TTA Mantis cases from Thomman but no rush for them.

I got mine direct, they are in stock there, of course they are in the Ukraine (I believe), not sure if that would cause problems getting them or not. Seems like they are still operating.
