Great! If you want a wavefolder then get Warps and even an additional oscillator to compliment Warps. I’ve actually got a lot to learn myself, I only started modular just of last year!! Just remember to have a clear goal in mind when going modular or else it’s an endless game!!
My portable setup, medium (I think?) Gorilla case. Power, midi, audio and usb cables are all routed underneath the instruments. I’ve got a pdu arriving tomorrow so I’ll need just a single power cord and somewhere to plug some audio jacks in. It is getting pretty hot, maybe I’m paranoid, but I’m wondering if the heat is going to damage the instruments or cause a fire
Octatrack and Digitone arrived this week so I’m just getting my head around how this can work together. It’s fun so far. Just bouncing stems out from Ableton and trying to reconstruct tracks on the octa, with some parts played live from the Digitone/takt.
Thanks @DaveMech for the inspiration
Seriously @DaveMech, you need to be on commission for all these gorilla case sales.
Maybe he is.
Whoa always awesome to see another S-10 in use. I feel really privileged to have one, I don’t think people appreciated them much back in the day but it’s an extremely well built keyboard with an excellent arpeggiator, and it sounds wonderful. Not much more you can ask for. They seem to be fairly uncommon from what I can see, I don’t see them for sale very often. I had a number of dead keys on mine when I bought it but I was able to repair it, just a few corroded traces on the matrix pcb.
I thought I’d update with these pictures of my latest setup . . .
Just getting my head into the PCM81 which arrived yesterday - sounds great so far.
I’m thinking about getting the Ventris Reverb out again - it was going to be sold but I think I may stretch my money and try and keep it.
Yeah I’ve got my octatrack, heat and an AS1 in the medium case too… Thanks Dave!
My Heat was also worryingly hot last weekend! Searching old post on here, various people have mentioned the heat living up to it’s name, but I don’t remember it getting that hot before.
I’ve packed mine into the box pretty much identically to your photo (obviously cant see how you’ve packed yours underneath but the foam in mine is definitely covering up the vents on the back of my heat… so I might try and remove some foam and leave a bit of space to let it breath.
Anyone else experienced their heat being hot enough to fry and egg on?
@DaveMech As you seem to be the gorilla case spokesman
How hot did your heat get in the big box before you changed to the recent double double digi combo? Any tips on packing these boxes to help with over heating? Or should I just continue to pack as many elektrons as I can fit in to the case and hope for the best?
I wish haha.
Obviously it had no foam at the back to make room for the cables. It did get very hot but have had studio sessions where I left it on for hours without an issue. I’m going to put a disclaimer here though that I’m not responsible for any overheating haha. Seriously though, I don’t think you have to be worried. Contact Elektron to ask them how hot the heat is able to get without issues.
I mean, on stage it can get insanely hot with all the gear and lights. Gear needs to be able to handle that.
Can you show us a picture of your case with the cable management underneath as you’ve mentioned?Also could the gorilla cases be custom made?I’d like to fit the MPC Live, a Dave Smith Tempest and a Access VirusTI desktop inside…
Sure, I’ll post something this weekend
Bought mine a few years back. I was lucky to get my hands on one a few years back really cheap locally. It was the sampler I always wanted as a kid, when I was playing on my Casio sk1
It was and still is in great shape. The diskdrive still works and got a load of disks with it, but I use the ipad with a sysex app to send and store patches. Build quality is superb! I use it as masterkeyboard sometimes. Plays really fine. I really shouldnt with such an old device
Cool! Tell us more about it!
Woah! That looks frickin‘ cool! WTF!
Definitely need more info!
