Like digital noise on audio over USB?

Yea faders are nice but adds so much to the size... Korg, why no mixer with mini faders? ;)

Yea I had an old 1402(?) from around that time, I wish I hadn't sold it.

Yea I want to get a few external effects, I have none, except in gear like the octatrack. I thought organizing my space with patch bays, having everything hooked up would make things easier, and it has, but sometimes it feels like a monster and becomes a lot to think about when making music. Hence trying to take some small gear and sub mix it out.

Only and Buchla does not belong in the same sentence.
