You're probably going to get almost as many different answers as there are monitors! I've had some Genelec 8030s for probably 12 years or so. I honestly bought them because they got good reviews and they suited my needs in terms of size and frequency response. I didn't need something that went down ...

It sounds nice. Certainly will be interesting to see the details of what they've come up with. FSOL story - I remember the day I picked up a pristine copy of ISDN in a charity shop in London for all of £3 I think. The staff must have thought I was on something given the huge grin on my face when I w...

Those are really good!
My favourite is the second one.
You should do a physical release. I would definitely buy a copy.

Yes, an analogue to digital convertor is what you need.

Lots of options from cheap to expensive!

I use adat rather than spdif so can't recommend a particular device but there's a whole list here which may help narrow down your options a bit.

Basically any handheld digital recorder will do the job fine.

It's not like you are going to be in need of ultra low noise Mic pre amps to capture really quiet sounds or anything with the signal strength that modulars put out.

The threads Jamnuska links should give you all you need to know.

Cool. Thanks for posting that.
I really like Carl Stone's music.

This CD of his sometimes gets overlooked a bit in favour of his earlier work but is a great listen.

Yes, sorry, budget maybe €300-400 (new or used). Thanks for the suggestions. I have a G&L bass and agree they're very nice but a bit more cash than I can spend at the moment! Hadn't looked at those Sire Marcus Miller basses though - they get some pretty good reviews and are a similar price to the Sq...

Fretless bass recommendations

(I promise I did search first! Didn't find any specific threads) I'd like to try my hand at fretless bass (I've played fretted for a few years) but am a little lost where to start. Don't want to spend a fortune obviously as I may discover it's not for me. I'd probably prefer to stick with 4 strings....

It's amazing the sounds that can come out of a 259e, Shatner related or not!

Funny looking back at the complaints it received when first released.

I made a second case using a Doepfer DIY kit.

I started with a 4x84hp case that I'd also made myself.

I don't think it was until my 4th case that I had a prebuilt one - a Doepfer LC6.

A lot of the Wiard 300 series modules can function pretty well as standalone synths in their own right. Modcan's Quad LFO can too. Can the Modcan go well into audio rates? It says 500hz upper limit on Modcan's website. http://modcan.com/amodules/quadLFO.html I wouldn't want it as my only oscillator...

Having used a couple of different systems that utilise it, I've honestly never found the colour coding of inputs and outputs on modules that necessary.
Once you have spent a little bit of time with a module you know where and what everything is anyway and the colours become irrelevant.

With zero carpentry skills, I think selling the LC3 and buying a skiff might be a good option.

Or, as you say, use the hardware and buy suitable end cheeks or maybe get a local carpenter to make a skiff size box for them.
