EDIT: I totally posted before reading the rules. ...if a mod wants to move this to the proper thread, I'd be grateful!
Hello! No real reason to post this besides excitement. I've been wanting to commit to an AE system ever since it came out, but have been so tied up in eurorack expansion that it has been hard to set aside any money for it. I'm an ex recording engineer turned visual arts instructor and have migrating from musical interest to sound design. One of the things I impress upon my students is that art culture has moved on from discipline isolation to a place where youi've got to have some kind of multidisciplinary understanding in order to participate in contemporary practice. So I'm trying to teach modular composition to visual arts students because there's a lot to be borrowed and given in that relationship. The problem is that you can get someone wound up and excited, and then they can't afford the hardware. Everyone reading this knows what a ridiculous game changer this platform is, and even before receiving my first system I've committed to teaching on AE exclusively.
Below is what I chose to start with. I left out filtering and sequencing because this already stretched my budget to an extreme, and I usually don't get into either of those things until triggers / gates / clocks, FM, logic and switching, and AM are covered. Eventually I'd like to get dueling Drone38's so it seemed like the Dronx was a good mixing solution. Does anyone happen to know if the Dry / Wet turns off just the delays, or if it also cuts the distortion and EQ? I'm hoping its the former, but if not I was going to get it anyway.
I was going to order from Noisebug, but there were too many things I wanted that they didn't have. That and I feel married to the idea of a two standard row case with neon green sides and walnut front and back.
And while I'm here, module idea: a crossfader that can do 1in > 2out, and can be switched to do 2in > 1out. Basically a switch that crossfades.
