that could be very interesting if it was put together right. i would be a bit nervous about having my gear around in a party type environment, but I think that could be managed, especially at freerotation.

i think the performance side should be emphasised... something like a side room that did some performances, or maybe some modular guys who appeared on some different stages over the weekend. and then one afternoon when people are in day time mode, have a space where people can try out some systems with headphones and the system owners are around to answer questions 1 on 1.


sorry for the delayed response to this mate.

i wouldnt worry about your gear, we can do it in the daytime in the chillout or something, there wont be any munters about then.
maybe not be letting people try out your gear though, keep it nice and relaxed, and of course a performance is vital.
i wonder if the post modular guys would bring their open day set-up, i did ask David last year but i think he was just getting set-up.
what was their thing like ?
performance any good ?

if anyone needs Freerotation membership invites PM me with your real name and email address.

It was a really nice day. Low key and friendly. Their 'demo' machines were the personal cases of Dan from Space Case... i went drinking with him and another guy afterwards... proper nice fella with a real life story. I think he would definitely be up for doing stuff... either just coming along or doing something representing Post Modular.

Performance was not my favourite TBH. But could have been a bad day for them.

Yeah I would feel a bit difficult letting people play on my gear. On one level it's really nice to make it accessible, but I shat myself when even a close friend was using my stuff... pulling on cables by the wires and bumping tubes.

Worth asking the BugBrand guy from Bristol if he wants to be involved... he always comes across as a really nice guy.

Jim Petherwick from Under_score was putting together a modular system the last time I spoke to him.

James Holden is a 'big' name but he's underground at heart and is worth asking to see where he's at.

I really like Umcorps... dense and mysterious ambient drone style.

^^^

the thing is mate, i'm too busy to be dealing with it right now, so i cant be getting in touch with artists yet, maybe you could sound a few people out.

i dont have any money left, so people like james holden would be out of the question i think.
i'd like to keep it low key tbh.

speak by email on this bro.

those layouts make me feel ill and the functions don't look very inspiring.

You would find it hard to mix with other modular formats as well (athough it is possible).

I don't see the advantage of semi modular stuff really. You can make your modular layout like that by leaving cables in place if you like.

different systems have different standards. most eurorack oscillators output at a maximum -5 and +5 volts. The envelopes go from 0v to +10v. What standard do these conform to? What voltage will they de damaged by? Will they damage any modules that they are connected to?

Eurorack has more options and these questions are already answered becuase they are being deisnged to fit together.

That's just my feelings about it though.

i kind of agree with oblio, they look a bit bland fucntion wise, and dont inspire me, but hell its good theres so much stuff out there

19" rack is cool, would slip straight into my rig.
