I really thought I would ditch some modules after getting the ER-301 - but what actually happened was that my relationship with them changed, I think for the better. I still have pretty much everything, and probably a little more besides.
Now instead of inevitably feeling ‘short’ of something i.e. “I wish I had one more channel of…” I found it a really liberating release from the constraints of hardware, but still with almost all the benefits.
Simple example, need an envelope with EOR - use Maths, need an envelope but don’t need the EOR - use the ER-301.
I need to make more use of this, but I have found recording voices and freeing up the sources after recording to be really liberating too. Again, it’s another way to overcome the natural limitations of hardware.
Finally, I learned patching techniques in the ER-301 that I have then since used in hardware modules which results in a new lease of life and a revealing of aspects of them I never knew existed.
Overall it’s been a hugely positive experience.
Oops, forgot to add which oscillators I have:
Digital Complex: Hertz Donut mk][
Digital Wavetable: 2 * Piston Honda mk][
Analogue Complex: Endorphin.es Furthurrrrr Generator
Analogue Mono: Birdkids Bateleur
Digital Modal Voice: 2 * Elements
Digital Waveguide: Mysteron
Analogue Drum Voices: Mutant Bassdrum, Snare & Hihats
Between these I can create pretty much anything I like, I rate them all very highly.
