That's interesting. Why would I need another 2ENV?
At the moment I'm a bit concerned that it looks/plays a lot like an standard monophonic analog synth. VCO, LFO, Filter, Envelope, VCA.
Another 2ENV because you have 2 VCAs and two filters, so four “traditional” envelope destinations. But since you already feel that you’re too close to a traditional synth voice, then I would go all experimental with my first suggestion
Logic compares two gate signals and outputs high or low depending on certain conditions. For example it will only output high when input 1 AND 2 are both high. Like this you can set up conditions when gates will fire.
I would like to make the most of the 5U I have left in my 19U Rack
I don't know enough about some of the more specialised modules, but this is why I have an AE Moduler
The springverb would be nice, less space than the MultiFX.
Sample and Hold perhaps, maybe noise?
I don't think I want topograph or drums just yet.
I'd like to learn about utilities like Logic, 3VCSwitch, [Beat] Divider
aha! bespoke 19u rack ,, and the same avatar as on ebay!! It was me who sold you that master & rack . welcome to the forum Nicholas.. or should i say Purplemancer!! ;-] I have no advice to give.. it really depends where you want to go sound-wise.. maybe just get a couple of 1u things and wait to see what robert is cooking up next.. meantime squeeze everything you can out of what you have, thats already quite a lot of permutations you have at yr disposal and you can only really know what you need, further than what you have, by working that stuff into the ground.. good luck and good noizes..
If your thinking of S&H and NOISE I reckon you'd have to get 2ATT/CV as well to get the most out of them. I'd def get BEATDIVIDER so you can do some external note sequencing or sync with a drum machine / PC DAW. Also MultiFx is a bit redundant unless you've got a stereo output like HPAMP or 4I/O.
I would definitely add a 2/att or 4/mix attenuator module, will instantly give you more flexibility as can set a range, moderate the level of modulation etc. Be more musical or more bonkers! I have assumed the 4/Mix you have is usually tied up mixing the oscillators.
I would echo others on getting another 2 ENV module, again increases your modulation possibilities dramatically. Ditto the noise module, to increase sound possibilities - pan pipe type sounds or Snare drums are hard to do without one, or you can do the Jarre noise filter sweep....
I personally would get another LFO, one is likely doing vibrato on the oscillators (2 if you want different rates), and one may be doing a trigger or gentle filter modulation; a 3rd means you can another modulation of a different rate on,say, the delay module.
The divider module would give you more possibilities too, in giving you another, adjustable modulation source (if feeding in a clock, could be midi). The beat divider would only be really helpful if you were doing sequencing in your AE.
That's 5, but the multi-fx is brilliant if you are trying to keep the sound inside the AE modular. You could drop the last 2 and get the Multi-FX instead...
The logic module I use mostly to mess with triggers so don't feel would be as useful in your set up, but some people are using to get ring-modulator type FX so, as always, it depends on what you want to do.
If you intend sequencing at some point, a bigger case would be good - you could stick a seq16 module in there now and have a good time, if you do I would recommend the noise module with it as well for reasons mentioned above.
