4 Sequencer
5 Wild card ( your own choice.)

Only 5 pieces and No modulars allowed!!

There is a genuine reason for this.... I may (sorry...will)have to get rid of all my gear because the new appartment I'm moving to barely has room for my family. No space for a studio. :cry: Thought about getting rid of the family but that would be........... nah, just couldn't!

So.... what is the altimate setup guys?
1. MicroQ
2. TB-303
3. Xbase09
4. Atari computer
5. Yamaha RM50

What about processors and such?
