I had woodworker friend build me a 20-space rack out of nice-looking 3/4"
plywood, then mounted 8-spaces of rack rails in the back. I mounted the
MOTM supply in back, the rest of the modules across the front. Currently
the rack holds a MAQ, 6 spaces of Doepfer modules and 2 spans of MOTM. The
420's I have on order will fill the rest of the blank spaces in the rack,
after that I have to figure out something else.
>Love my '420s!
Paul told me mine'll come next week, can't hardly wait.

BTW, I have my first gig with the MOTM stuff on monday, a free-improvised
ambient/acid jazz/illbient type of trio thing with a bassist, a drummer who
doubles on turntables, and myself on rhodes, nord lead, modular and
effects. Anybody else playing out with their MOTM?

together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
