Yeah - I am very tempted to go minimal. With a loft full of old vinyl I'm already hanging on to too much!

What with those and my wifes 200 coats & 1000's of shoes I've got no hope!

I may have exaggerated the numbers on the clothing. It just seems that way. And of course she needs them all! Styles will always come back. :wink:

Funny. I'm in the process of seriously debating the minimal route myself. Zebra2 is starting to attract my ideas more than the TI, and Battery 3 is a nice break from the Machinedrum which I've been using constantly all year.

Now that I got Operator, trackteam's Beatbox Livefills, and, most importantly, my MPD 24 to control Live, I do use my hardware less. In fact, I took my Triton out of my setup (soon to be sold), and lent my ER-1 and KP-1 to a friend (who is getting quite good sounds out of the ER-1).

So, right now, I am down to Live controlled by my MPD 24, Machinedrum, Voyager, and KP-3. It is a tight setup, and I am really enjoying it. Probably gonna add Sampler, and possibly a V-Synth. But I do love the more minimal setup. :D

But, I really want to get into software, specifically Ableton with the Novation SL but don't have the cash, so.........

should I sell the hardware to fund my £800 Ableton 6 with Operator & Sampler & Novation SL purchase?

GeoffShoulders
is the mixer the soundcraft spirt ES or E12?

I have an ES and like it a whole lot. Eventually I'm gonna buy another.

Do you tried the new OS 2.0 for the ti ? This opens a whole new world in the virus universe!

Yes, OS 2 is very nice for sure.

don't sell your gear... it'll be worth a mint... some day. I'm still holding on to my Timex/Sinclair 1000. :wink:
