Digitakt, Behringer Model D, DSI Pro 2.
Simple but effective.
DT + Virus keys is a great setup. They go very well together - my setup link is below. Think of it however you like: Like a DT with keys, and much improved synth engine and dedicated realtime controls; or as a Virus with a sampler and Electrons sequencer.
Similar to what I’ve settled on for the time being. I’ve got mine paired with the Rev2 though instead of the P-2, and one of my 4U modular boats instead of the Model D.
Yeah I dig the Pro 2 and Boog combo because the Pro 2’s 4 cv outs is the perfect amount to modulate the Boog’s cv inputs. And the Digitakt’s midi Tracks (for CC sequencing) I find are good additions to the Pro 2’s internal sequencer.
The Elektron covers wouldn’t fit with this stand. A reason I wouldn’t buy it.
Those are the best monitor stands I’ve ever seen.
I hope the magnets don’t wipe the por… I mean tapes!
I had visions of you literally blowing the roof off with the Rytm at first!
Mine is becoming increasingly less portable:
Eurorack with 3 oscillator AJH system + Maths + Clouds
DSI Prophet Rev 2
Moog Sub 37
smooth vibes, very nice.
Behringer Model D
Yamaha Reface CP
Technics SL1200MK2 & vinyl
The A1R is a powerhouse.
Elektron Digitakt > Arturia Minibrute 2S > Korg Minilogue + Kaosspad 3
Digitakt’s 8 audio tracks & 4 midi seq tracks for each synth + 4 Kaosspad looper layers for the Minilogue
Variations on the Minibrute are made via it’s sequencer. Minilogue is mostly being played and looped.
I also have an Alesis Sample Pad Pro for playing/recording real time variations on the digitakt via midi.
I ended up getting a Mackie 1642 as I’m buying new synths and kind of future-proofing. Honestly I much prefer the sound (and overdriven sound) of the A&H. I’m fine for now esp using UAD preamps and whatnot, but if I ever change mixers I’ll probably get an A&H Zed420 or something similar. I just don’t love that A&H has their own jargon for things that are standardized otherwise everywhere else. It’s not major stuff but it’s enough to be annoying. Soundcrafts are nice mixers but just not my sound. Maybe for a more clean, pop style music vibe they’re ideal, but yeah… that ain’t me.
that erica box looks like so much fun. i heard it’s super hard to use subtly and takes a while to learn to reign it in… that true?
