excuse the black bars, but the forum software doesn't like portrait orientation images for some reason.

Excellent!

Needs a Roland MKS-900 or A-110 in that beast.

I have one, and they look really damn cool in person. Videos don't do them justice. Shame they are quite rare though, or I'd buy a full rack of 16, 1 for each channel. 😀

You and I both my friend 😁 just another thing I didn't know I needed! I'm officially on the hunt for an A-110 to go with my beautiful A-880 mixer...

One module I'm not seeing get any love in here is the Roland SC-D70. I got one just under a month ago and it's quickly become a favorite. It's the last in the Sound Canvas line and is basically a SC8820 that can run at 24bit 44/48Khz vs 24bit 32Khz on the 8820/8850. It also is the only SC to support either digital or optical audio out. The only downside is it doesn't have a physical button to switch instrument maps but you can do this via sysex messages. This supports SC55/SC88/SC88Pro/SC8820 maps.

It does sound different from an SC55 so my SC50 still gets use, and I have a MU500 for XG. I still waiting for deals on a nice Korg or Casio but it looks like these were much less popular in Japan compared to the Rolands and Yamahas so there seems to be much less supply and thus higher prices.

SC-D70 is really nice and works fine for me as an audio device.

why does LGR try and copy me... heh x3

I know I know, I'm definitely not the first either, it's just funny that often when I try do something or think about it a LGR video comes up a short time later x3

Here is my current midi 'towerish' setup.

In the white box on the top left are all my wavetable daughterboards + device to connect them as an external sound module.
