N00b Advice for Ultimate Behringer Eurorack

I am new to Eurorack and am hoping to get some expert advice about the system I designed. i would like to keep my system modest, so I am going with 4 rows of 84hp. I have noticed many, many Behringer threads on Muffwiggler and have concluded they must be the best brand. I have selected a Behringer N...

Re: What is happening with Oberheim SEM?

I don’t really remember, but were the Euro line even functional at NAMM? Either way, they never got past the prototype/trade show interest gauging before he retired.

This could be the thing that pushes me over. Maybe with one of those USB-lunchboxes.
That's awesome. So far, that might be what gets me too.

Re: Korg Arp 2600 1:1 grey version confirmed by JMJ

As far as I know the FS is thru hole tho? That’s extremely appealing to me... I presume the mini will be surface mount? Somewhere, maybe the Marc Doty review, says the FS is part through hole and part (I’d bet mostly) smt. Only throwing out a guess, but it would seem practical to me that the mini a...

I feel like you should send that Box11 pic to Roger. That case style is awesome. Could you measure the dimensions of the storage space? I love the planets panels, too. Cool system.

Re: Does Serge make sense for Noob?

Serge has a more fundamental approach, in which you will mostly build up your blips and bloops and patterns from fairly basic components. Arguably, this is a better learning approach than buying the latest multi-function Euro gizmo that makes pretty digital noises. A few of the Serge modules (SSG, D...

Re: When did you realize you were a modular aficionado?

When I realized not everyone follows when people reference modules by their model numbers in discussions. It turns out you are a cut above in nerdiness if you automatically know what a Doepfer A-138 is, and so on.

That Gorilla is a bit deeper than I might like, but all that foam is a nice plus for shock absorption.

That Roadready case looks good, too. Not sure of its depth:

Re: Case Recommendations for Serge Systems

I picked up an Animoo and am hoping to add a TKB soon. Does anyone have a fresh take on cases for Serge? I'd love something fitted like the STS M-Case, though perhaps something a little more durable. The 8U Flightcase Warehouse case looks cool, too, but I wonder if anyone knows a supplier of somethi...

At Superbooth last year one 5U manufacturer (COTK? Moon? I honestly can't recall) was in their own room surrounded by busts of Yuri Gagarin and other space paraphernalia. Truly the sort of space (heh) I'd want to demo my instruments in, particularly since it wasn't shared with any other manufacture...

Re: Any 5U showing at NAMM 2019?

Competing for space and volume against Gibson, Zildjian, Fender, or DW sounds like hell on Earth. It's not so bad. The synth manufacturers are largely together, and synths lend themselves well to headphone demos. I've gotten a lot of quality time in demoing synths at NAMM. And demoing guitars, peda...

Behringer must love the repetitive arguments that keep mentions of their products at the top of the page of every synth forum. They should hire shills to keep stirring the pot, if they don’t already. #guerrillamarketing

Re: Eurorack, next to 5U?

I have both a Euro and 5u system, and of course they work well (enough) together. If your 5U is completely in a 22u case, however, I might give it a hard look and decide if what you have in it is truly unique and irreplaceable in Euro. If you got into the Euro flow, it’s functionality could possibly...

No, that Maine studio tour is great, but they are referring to some short 'demo' videos he did for specific vintage synths that I think mostly contained wisecracks along with a technical tidbit or two.
