Do you have your Elektrons away from your PC or next to it?

This. I have them on a separate desk but close enough to my computer that I can manage samples and other Elektron content, do OS updates or record back into a DAW. But when I’m actually working on creating new music with the Elektrons, the computer usually stays off. Not because it’s a distraction but because the way I like to work with the Elektrons is mostly self-contained and there’s no need for my computer to be on drawing power and making additional fan noise.


After buying a new laptop, I set up my old, slow laptop exclusively for use with synth gear. It’s plenty fast enough to record a jam, but slow enough that the internet isn’t a distraction!

Unfortunately, yes, my computer is right here on my desk and my gear is too.
Makes for easy uploading music/file management, but i wouldnt mind if it was gone.
Just not really a better place for it at the moment.
See? here i am typing this bullshit while one of my patterns runs on into Annoyingland…

my Syntakt is next to my Macs (i have two stacked Minis) because however cool Elektron sequencer is, sequencing gear with Numerology is a kind of fun of its own.
