I had to reduced a little bit my set-up due to weight and space problems.

Here is my current set-up :

I always say I'm going to play live "soon", but I still havent (without my ex-band). but as of today, I'd pretty much bring out all my gear.. I try to keep my gear collection slim so that there would be little difference between gear used for recording and gear used for live. Ultimately, I'd love to afford the MD UW (although the US dollar has sky-rocketed in value compared to the norwegian krone lately: 1790$ was worth about 9000 NOK in July, now, a MD UW would cost me 11500 NOK.. that's around 400$ more than just 3 months ago..), and I'd get a custom case like that of NovaTron (check his mySpace for the coolest live-rig ever), with my ESX, MnM, MD UW, Acidlab and some FX. sequence mostly everything at home, tweak and jam live.

Not a fan of using racks live, so i'd probably have the virus, nord 3, and juno for all of the synth duties live...

in a previous band i've used a dx7 controlling a matrix 1000 and akai s1000,

and in another I used to gig with a nord lead 2x and juno 106
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

My live synth setup is as follows:
Novation KS4
Alesis Ion
Laptop
Sonar 7
M-Audio Fast Track Pro
Deltex stand.

Use/routing:
Sonar is used for very minor rhythmic backing elements, program changes and click for the drummer.
Ion goes into the external in on the Novation and use one of the Novations parts for FX on the Ion.
4 outs out of the Novation for external mixing control for both synths.
Mic.. to mic splitter... one out to the external IN of the Ion for Vocoding. The other to a racked vocal processor.

Mine's changed a little since I last posted to this thread. Live I use a new Korg CX3 (instead of the old vintage one) through a behringer self amplified speaker cab. But I'm seriously thinking of doing a chop to my second hammond CV and taking that out with my leslie 50C for the little live playing I do these days. These clones are light, but I miss the real deal!
I can't remember the last time I took a synth with me and actually used it, I had the Casio CZ101 on top of the CX, but never ended up using it. I seem to be going 100% organ anymore.

Last showtime was...hm..Wavestation EX and JP-8000...we played some ballads on a wedding :lol:
The groom didn't ask me to pull off a solo with the Super Saw, so I didn't

In my electronic band (a duo) I do all the synth work alone. Last show I had the JP-8000 and the Juno 106 in a stack and the other stand was the DX-7 and PolySix...this was before buying the Pro-One :twisted:
