Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!
One of the AI readers, Phil Hendricks of Seattle, sent me pictures of his current rig, and as soon as I saw them, I knew my HCGP issues were solved, at least for this week. Pictured above, you can see Phil's Wall O' Korg, including an MS10, two MS20s, an SQ10, and an MS50. Ouch. A Minimoog D, a Roland Expander 102 (I think), an ARP Odyssey, what I believe is one of the Realistic Moogs, and a few various vintage effects. To the right, you can see some Moog modular bits. I'm embarassed to say I don't recongize the blue modular. I thought it was Emu at first, but that stuff is silver. It's not dark blue enough to be a PPG modular. I assume Phil will fill us in shortly.
Here's his vintage/current/boutique pedal collection. Lots of fun stuff here. Note the Realistic Electronic Reverb. No quality studio lacks one. I have two, of course, for double the quality.
Here's where Phil is trying to score brownie points off of me. But I can't be bought! A tasteful little collection, there. Can't go wrong with a K2K. Can't go wrong with an Emax II HD. Can't go wrong with an Evolver. In short, you can't go wrong.
And last but not least, Phil's modern modular setup, because whatever that blue thing is, whatever that silver thing is, the Moog modules, and that ARP 2600 in the corner simply aren't enough. Lots of Blacet, some Wiard, some MetalBox, lots of EuroRack. However, we see these sorts of rigs all the time. What Phil gets extra credit for is his taste in effects units. A PAiA vocoder, a Metasonix Hellfire Modulator, and a couple other pieces make for nice weirdness, but the cream of the crop is that blue box on the right, the Deltalab pitch-shifter. I believe that's an MXR Pitch Transposer there, as well, but I might be wrong on that.
In any case, hopefully Phil will pop on and let us know what the other pieces of note are.
