I now have my second AE Modular Starter Rack 2 after the first one had some questionable quality issues!
In addition, I have the HPAMP, Kick and TRIQ164. I am waiting for DRUMKIT 010, Solina and MULTIFX to come back into stock.
After initial noodling, standalone, I am already in need of additional patch cables and so have ordered some more but it is easy to lose hours twiddling knobs!
I will hook it up to my Deluge and see what I can do that is more musical because, so far, I have been using NOISE via the attenuator and S&H to generate random CV pitch and also the logic module to inject even more randomness. I am starting to understand why all these modules exist.
There’s a learning curve for everyone. Even the most experienced musicians! Yes I advise everyone get extra patch cables with their starter 2, especially if you are looking to make a full featured song.
I actually didn’t have a midi controller at all when I got my SR2, but quickly realized it was absolutely necessary if I wanted to make anything musical at all.
