What is the ultimate (Cubase)musical set-up?

Hi folks,

I am collecting for years now, trying to achieve the ultimate music studio set up for atari s.

So far, primarly my collection is ;

- Clab MK-X
-Atari Falcon
-Mega ste
-Soundpool analogue 8
-FDI (soundpool and Steinberg)
-Soundpool Adat
-Cubase Audio Falcon
-Cubase
-Ensoniq ASR 10 rack sampler
-Datadat
Zero-x

Coming up soon i hope, CosmosEx

I need a bit advice from you folks how and what is best to put together,what to gather, and I am VERY interested what you use in your set-ups.

I am mainly hoping to make sampled music some day

Realistically there isn't one. Of course the list is endless in terms of music instruments. For all out MIDI, then arguably in Atari circles the Falcon with the specific Falcon peripherals that have been mentioned before, but then in terms of pure MIDI, some would say the TT for crunching, but then for software compatibility the ST with SMP24 / II, M04 or MM1 etc... You can record audio on ST, TT and Falcon in different ways with CAF..., or with CBX's, but then you can go Digital Multitrack route. So really, there is just your choice that is right for you.

Personally, I use an ST as my main, with SMPII, Midex and a MIDI Xtra with Cubase, all in all 10 outs and 12 ins. The Falcon I have connected to the ST, and that runs with 5 ins and 8 outs, all running:

-Yamaha SY85
-Yamaha CBX-D3
-Roland JV1080
-Roland VS1680
-Roland DS30A monitors
-Akai S2000
-Akai MPC2500 SE
-Novation Bass Station
-Novation Drum Station v2
-Novation Mininova
-Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 UW MKII
-Arturia Minibrute
-X0xb0X
-TC Electronic M350 effects
-YM2149 synth
-Gameboy with MIDI
-NES with MIDI
-C64 with MIDI
-Teenage Engineering POs
-Focusrite compressor
-Mackie 1604VLZ4 mixer
-Marantz CDR

Like yourself and Atarieterno, still like rocking the Atari's.

In 1987 my supreme-stellar-magical configuration was an Atari 1040 ST with Cubase v2 cracked, a box of floppy disks, a Casio GZ-50M sound module with its master mini-keyboard, and eager to make music. And I did everything, I studied at the Conservatorio Superior de Música, I sequenced the songs and used it live in a dance orchestra that gave me money on weekends in my student days.

Now, in 2018, I have a lot of Atari equipment, for MIDI and Audio, with all kinds of storage systems, mixers, microphones, instruments ...
But I do not have the same enthusiasm and energy that I had when I was 17 years old. That's right: I still love Atari and that's what I use for music (that's what everybody knows).
Atari forever.
ST/fm/e, STacy, Mega ST/e, TT, Falcon, C-Lab MKX... and more music tools.

Talking about the Falcon, I would recommend JAM IN and OUT from Line Audio. It's the ultimate
analog in and out boxes for the Falcon. I used them in my studio until 1998.

the ultimate setup depends on the user and the way their brain happens to be wired. Some people do better with more stuff and some with less and others with different kinds of stuff.

my setup is an stf with some Exxos upgrades, an Ultrasatan, a trackball, and a Unitor sending 3x MIDI out to midi->CV converters in a massive 5u modular synthesizer and accepting 2x midi in from a DX7 and an Axis 64

Whoaw, still impressed by reading all diversity in usage. Funny thing is indeed, Atari was the VERY first system,that allowed you to choose and pick programs the way your brain is wired!

Still reading /searching internet for more input

Looks very interesting, Exxos put a bit of info on this forum... Is it likely to show up on e-bay or something someday?
