> I know the Zynthian from Marek, who espoused its virtues on Facebook. It's an interesting device. I don't like the form factor, so I'd have to see how to wrestle it into a 1U rack, and what effect that would have on the UI.
Apropros wrestling 1U racks, I have pretty much replaced all my old favourite synths with desktop boxes, and my new paradigm is a shoe-shelf collection of oddities and greats:
MODAL Craft 2
IK Uno Pro
.. this is essentially a complete replacement for my 90’s 19” rig, and has the bonus that I can easily take bits of it to other spots and places for jams.
Yesterday for example, I bagged up the 1010Music thingies+MicroFreak+Uno and inserted it into my friends' MPC+Doepfer-Modular rig for an evening jam, and it was so easy and fun and delightful to walk away with a Bluebox full of new material.
Anyway, I’m finding Its actually a bit more comfy than the 19” rack, which I have relegated to inactivity in my realm, because my new rig is after all, just a shoe shelf that ‘fits in’ with the dimensions of the other furniture …
I’ll no doubt need to add another Bluebox soon, because .. there’s always new shoes to wear ..

Again the form-factor here works really well, but note that it could also function quite solidly as a monitor stand/media control station …
