Re: Synth with best* internal sequencing?

Why not a digitakt (sampler)or digitone( FM)? Can be found for around 500€ second hand...their sequencing is powerful enough to be the brain on any live set

Re: Secondhand Synth or not.

Newer synths can be bought second hand with little use and still under warranty. Most of my eurorack modukes are second hand.
I would think twice about buying a 40 years old synth unless you can allow some budget for repairs....which some may need

Re: 0-10V output vs. -5/+5 output

Feeding 10V to an input expecting 5V or less shouldn't fry anything, generally you'll just get the same result with anything over 5V that you would with 5V. I say "shouldn't", that's assuming the module is properly designed and is functioning properly. Same with feeding negative voltage to an input...

Re: MOTU Ultralite [mk4/AVB] vs. Presonus 1824c with eurorack

Look for a non C 1810, should be cheaper and hatware wise are the same. 1810C has type C input but works at usb2.0 speeds The only problem on the 1810 regarding modular is it only has ADAT in, no out. I wanted to add a expert sleepers ES-6 for 6 dc coupled ins plus the 4 outs on the 1810 was more th...

Re: Is leaving a 1HP gap between modules a bad idea?

One can always cut a hole and add one or two ventilation plates in the case, I do not see the problem.

Re: Moog Mother 32+ Moog dfam, but what modules should i pair these with?

For DFAM I recommend MI Peaks (2× reset lfos perfect for drums) and Mutant Brain if you want it to talk to a daw or play it via midi. For utilities I recommend MI kinks and links, you will get a lot of features in little space. Good thing about MI is there are lots of second hand oportunities. I als...

Re: Moog Mother 32/Subharmonican/DFAM, as the center pieces of a Eurorack?

A 9U104HP or even a 9U84HP system with the 3 moogs plus some modules could be a beautiful beast. For a beguiner just a disting is more than enough, I recommend some utilities like kinks and links and a vca like veils.
