Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

Okay, it's the moment you've all been waiting for. Now, let me state from the outset that these photos have appeared on the internet before. They were put in the MOTM Yahoo group for a brief period, but they were removed; in the time they were there, word got around quickly. (Which is why they were removed, of course.)


However, I fly in the face of convention, and put them here for your enjoyment. An anonymous donor provided them to me, and I will remove them if asked, because the owner of this system isn't exactly known for revealing the tools of his trade. So, without further ado, I give you Hans Zimmer's Wall Of Modular, which is, without a doubt, the World's Most Ludicrous Synth. Each picture is a link, which will take you directly to the full size model.


Moog #1

This is the far left of the Wall, and is, by and large, original Moog modular, as far as I can tell, of various vintages. There seems to be some non-Moog stuff on the second row of the left panel. Any thoughts?









Moog #2

This is the other side of the Moog Alcove, showing the third panel.












Misc #1


This is the next panel, and is made up of miscellaneous synths. There are two Studio Electronics SE-1s, a Cwejman S1, several racks of Doepfer (which have a couple Analog Solutions modules stuck in 'em, for balance, I suppose), and a pair of Midified and racked MiniMoog. The black panels are all CMS, as far as I can tell.






Misc #2

This is another angle on the same panel.














Roland

Between Hans Zimmer and Vince Clarke, I'm surprised that any Roland System 100m modules are left for the rest of us. This is one of the largest there is, with 58 VCOs, 37 VCFs, 32 ENVs, 12 VC Phase shifters, and 9 Sequencers. I think somebody needs to organize an intervention. This man must be stopped.





The Whole Shebang

Two different angles of the entire system.

The second row of the left panel looks like it has several Moog 921s. I just used one for the first time today, and it was awesome.

the wood looks like cheap pine with a dark stain, perhaps a shade of zimmerbottom? is it better in person? hell, i had to find something wrong with it. of course he only makes silly hollywood shite with all this. sad. he will at least go away when he dies, and maybe the gear will land in the hands of artists!

it seems like half his Moog is missing. am i imagining things?

where are all the Projekt Elektronik modules? the PE sequencer assists, for example, are nowhere to be found.
