I Call Him Maynard

The latest incarnation of my synth rig, Maynard.

Roberta became unhappy with Maynard camping out in the living room, so I moved him into the office. It's pretty sweet: I mounted the big Apple Cinema display on a swingarm so I can move it up / down / around as needed. You can see the misc hardware; software includes NI Komplete 8, Camel Audio Alchemy, Spectrasonics Omnisphere and Trilian, Logic 9, and a bunch of other stuff - I never met a piece of music software that I didn't like.

Do a Google Image search on "synth porn" and you'll find rigs 10x or more as big as mine. But I'm pretty happy with Maynard -- he's not too big, and he's not too small -- he's just right. I confess that someday I'd like to add a few rows of Doepfer modular (or other Eurorack) components, but for now I'm really happy.
