Just curious what kind of hardware gear Aalto users own.
I own an Alesis Ion, a Waldorf Blofeld, a DSI Mopho keyboard and a Teenage Engineering OP-1. Next buy: either the DSI Tempest or an Elektron Octatrack.
So what about you guys?
- one laptop and some software and a Duet interface.
- akg k240 headphones.
- Clevinger six-string electric upright bass.
- cardboard cello.
- ancient, blown, Event TR6 monitors
- Chemex coffeemaker, large.
- Zig-Zag rolling papers, "ultra-thin".
- a beat-up bicycle.
If anyone feels like loaning me up to a couple thousand bucks I would like to get:
- a Fenix synth and sequencer.
- a Soundplane controller.
- new pair of monitors.
- a decent bike.
This is fun.
I have some gear that's been sadly neglected since I started Madrona Labs. I'll definitely use some of it alongside my new instruments when I can get back to making music. SH-101 and MS-20 will be in this category. The Maestro electric piano too.
Sold an Arp 2600 and Obie 4-voice to pay rent when I was starting the company! I don't regret it. Priorities ya know.

Be curious to know how people use Aalto also.
I pretty much tweakit live while jamming with the spd-sx-wavedrum on top. I'll also play chords or bassline with the left hand and playing a beat with my left hand/right foot on the spd-sx and doing backvocals. We are only 2 in the band but we both share musical duties. It sounds like a full band pretty much.
So far Aaalto is my favorite synth for tweaking live since everything is pretty much in yo face and patchable.
Er. I own a collection that might look like a museum collection to most of you/ I'dd advice you to have a look at my website at www.brassee.com (if you dare!).
Kaivo is actaully my first foray into plugins after some bad early experiences with Native Instruments B4 Hammond simulator.
I won't cause myself pain by listing all the instruments that have passed into and back out of my fingers over the years. I wish someone had told me everyone would still want an tr-808! My studio is pretty cut and dry, and I make mainly dnb.
-Pair of Rockit 5's / Pair of Sennheiser HD380 pro's
-Focusrise Scarlett 2i4
-Korg Wavestation (love)
-Korg Radias rack
-Novation Nova rack
-Elektron Machinedrum SPS1-UW
-83RX Biamp Mixer (I love the spring verb)
-DBX 120A (for weaponizing bass)
-Zoom H6 Recorder, for all mobile sampling
-A Rugged Old Dell Inspiron I got new for 199$ 3 years ago
-Misc guitars/basses/couple drum kits downstairs. Many random amps.
PS: Brassee, your collection looks awesome! And for the record while I never feel good having a computer on stage I have had more show stopping problems with good old analog gear. Amps more than anything, but my old juno 106 let me down a few times live. I think it had dco's, but you get what I'm saying.
Ah, other hardware buffs do still exist.
I've got a whole list of issues with these old things but the "fun" side is that one learns a lot about repairing and even modyfing this old analog stuff in the process. Did youa have a look at my special projects? Ever seen a fully programmbale E70 oozing with CS80 technology. Have a look at my Son OF GX project. Want some Kaivo avant la lettre. Look at my Starship One setup.
Recently I resored the sixt voice on my Yamaha CS70. Now I am trying to revive a very rare one: The Crucialnelly Compacsynth. That one however ahs so many issues it'll probably end in something close to a full electronic restoration.
And those Rhodes Chroma's stil need a new power suplly and, and adn, Jadajadajada.
