Ok, it's happened. I told myself I wouldn't succumb to the temptation of so many knobs switches and patchable wires, but what can I do? I'm drawn to this sort of thing. I finally took the leap last week to start building a modular analog synthesizer. I pretty much knew I was doomed to this fate at some point but what better point than in the middle of an economic meltdown. I figure the best music and poetry is created in times like this, so I better get my game on and be prepared.

A few pages of posts on the muff wiggler forum asking the experts there how to pack a whole bunch of functionality into 6Us of rack and I'm on my way. It was actually less painful decision-wide than I had thought once I was resigned to the task at hand.

Here's a diagram of the rack I'm shooting for.

Rack arrives on Monday so I'm prepping the studio this weekend to make room. I'm sure there will be more on this topic later.
