Setup your VST sequences as desired.
Record the analogue synths into an audio track in Cubase, while playing back the VST stuff.
Then export the results.

The UI on Synthtech's E352 is really well done. One push button encoder and a screen.
It took about 2 minutes to figure out and has all the settings readily available without any menu-diving.

"Stripe" on a Eurorack PCB should really be called -12V.
So make sure you have the stripe on the cable going to -12V on your case power distribution board as well.

Are you planning on sequencing external stuff with the rene? Just curious as there isnt much v/oct aside from clouds. Slightly OT, but keep in mind that there's no need for Rene (or any other sequencer for that matter) to just sequence pitch - v/oct. They can (repeatably) modulate any CV input whic...

A lot of them are safe with +/-15V it would seem. From this page: http://www.doepfer.de/faq/a100_faq.htm#Current specifications Power supply and case for A-100 modules Most of the A-100 modules require a dual +/-12V supply. This means that the terminalsGND, +12V and -12V are necessary. Some older mo...

I think you already have a tool that can do it.
Automator, which is built into Mac OSX, has a batch replace text in a filename function.
It's free so worth trying anyway :)

can you track CV values through the Motu inputs?
No, you can't.
It's only the outputs that are DC coupled and will work with CV.

That's pretty cool.

The A149-1/2 are great modules.

Are you having to regulate the power down to +/-12v or do they run straight off +/-15v?

There aren't any other modules like the Owl that you can run Max on. The closest thing might be the Qu-Bit Nebulae which can run PD patches.

You could try Audiomulch.
It certainly hosts plugins and is great for live performance. There's a free demo so you can try it out to see if it does what you want.

If you have a space on the power distribution board in your current rack then you could make a longer power connector cable and route that to the external module.

Re: Level of Musical/Production Knowledge needed for Modular

tl;dr - How much previous musical training/experience did you have prior to getting into modular, and how much do you think is necessary before doing so? Very little. None at all. I'd say a basic background understanding of (some of) the electronic principles involved might be useful in terms of re...

Matrix mixers are pretty useful for this sort of thing as you can bring in and out various elements of the patch that you want to effect and also easily patch up feedback loops.

I'm not overly interested in filters. Tend to like to shape sounds in other ways.
This is my only one in 24 MOTM spaces. Based pretty strongly on the Serge Resonant EQ.

I'm maybe in a bit of a minority in 5U land in that most of my patches are self-playing type ones and I went happily without any sequencer in my system for quite some time until very recently.

After a few years of using a Mackie Onyx mixer/interface I went to a mixerless setup with a Fireface 800 and Behringer ADA8200.
I've not missed the mixer element of the Mackie at all as I really was using it as an audio interface first and foremost.
