I used to be the "electronics" half of an experimental duo. Here are some of the configurations I was using at the time: Mixer's AUX sent > Boss DD3 delay > open channel on the mixer for a f/b loop of any combination of mixer channels Mixer's AUX sent > Alesis Ineko > open channel on the mixer for a...

I saw that exact set at guitar center for no less than 30 USD. Wow - that's expensive. Maybe the prices have gone up on these since I bought them - which was in 2005. I just checked and you can get them on ebay for $20 + shipping, so that probably works out to the same $30 in the long run. cheers, ew

Hosa makes these in boxes of 8: http://www.hosatech.com/hosa/products/CSS-800_Patchbay_Cable_Set.html Any music store should have these or be able to order them for you - if I recall, they go for around $10-$15 Cdn. for the box. Be aware, however that they are kind of flimsy - I had a few on them go...

Nice. makes me think of Blade Runner, of course.

Was the title inspired by Wild Palms, by any chance?

How about Zappa himself? I know it was composed/programmed more than actually "played", but his Synclavier work boggles the mind ;-)

In no particular order (and not all used with synths, either): Alesis Inkeko (cannot go wrong with this - the runaway echo and the bit-reduction alone are worth the price) All from DOD: Meat box - the most insane octaver ever made - it adds a sub-harmonic bass note that's rediculously low Classic Fu...

If you're not dead set on the "pedal" aspect - I'd highly recommend and Alesis Ineko - although it's more of a desk-top multi-effect than an actual "pedal" - it is loads of fun. (edit: I see on your other post that you already have one of these - oops) And if you want to go completely pedal-insane, ...

Pink Floyd, Rush and many others! Same here. And Genesis; and Marillion. These were my original inspirations back in the day - especially Rush (being a fellow hoser, of course). But after a 15 year hiatus from playing music, dusting off the old Juno-6, bringing it to a jam, and having everyone ther...

I don't have a company name, and since was our purchasing guy who took care of it, and I feel bad making the poor guy dig through 2 year old POs for personal stuff since he's kind of overloaded as it is. Plus, it was a local company in Montreal, so they wouldn't be much use to you either. However, h...

That's exactly the kind of foam that comes in the pelican cases. I know they sell the foam separately too, but like the cases, it's pretty pricey.

2 more suggestions: If your 909 is too high to fit into a guitar case - you can probably find a hardshell keyboard case that would work - but one of those will run you around $100 If money is no object, you can look into Pelican cases: http://pelican.com I use these for work equipment - but they're ...

I have had the great fortune in my life to work with Angelo and David Lynch on many occasions. I played on Twin Peaks as well. Angelo is a musical genius with an excellent sense for synths. David, as well, is a big keyboard fan. (He's got a great Rhodes and a FULL recording studio.) You are one luc...

This may or may not work for you based on the height of your gear, but for the past couple of years I've done shows with all my gear (mixer, grooveboxes, samplers, multi-FX) mounted into modified guitar cases. All of that gear is pretty flat, though - so If any of your equipment is higher than 2-3 i...
