I think I may have said this already, but in my current state of “i have more hardware than good ideas and would rather be traveling”, I do think of ditching a lot of gear. But Monomachine is 100% on the ‘keep’ pile. The idea knocking around my head is I could strip down to just that and a couple of other things, and do the rest in software as I kindof want to get back into DSP programming… maybe.
But then things go “If I keep Monomachine, I should keep Machinedrum. And Octatrack really helps tie the room together. And I should give the A4 and Digitone more chances. And this other thing… And this other thing… And this other thing…” and then I keep it all.
But if I really do end up stripping it down to only one, it’ll be Monomachine. So many synthesis options, and it keeps them fun.
