New Cases

Two new cases from the camera fair, £5 and £8 - that would be the cost of postage on ebay. They are around the same size and larger than the first, which might allow some storage space,
The current plan is to build wood surrounds in both then use the simple screw into wood mounts on one and try the more sophisticated aluminium rails on the other: if the latter works, I might try upgrading the first two cases.
Either way, I'll need two more zeus power supplies plus warts and two more Pittsburgh Outs. I'll start with one of each.

[Later] I have ordered two more Outs from Rhythm Active. Regarding power, given that I am moving away from The Cupboard in favour of smaller units in cases, it would make sense to liberate the power supplies from the Cupboard and use them in the cases, as did Tony of Synovatron.

Instrument 1 Version 2

Doepfer A143-4
I had to unplug the first multi-source Dream Machine patch in an enforced house tidy and will take the opportunity to reconfigure the modules.
While the Doepfer SoU and the Heisenberg have some discipline, I found the Wogglebug and NoiseRing too chaotic for my purpose, so I will concentrate on the first two.
Makenoise Phonogene
Doepfer's A143.4 Quad VCLFO is now available and so I have ordered one of those plus a 138c mixer and another 175 inverter from EMIS.
And with a windfall due to arrive, some more esoteric modules are on the cards, notably the Makenoise Phonogene.
And there's a camera fair on Sunday bringing the possibility of a second case.
