I’d found out about the E1 from a gearslutz forum post during the manufacturing hiatus. Only this afternoon did I realize they were in stock again!
I’m super excited, but also concerned about the significant investment. On paper, I am an ideal candidate and I will get my monies worth. Im just concerned that in reality my expectations may be mis-aligned with reality. Will I be too dumb to program? Will I need more midi routing investments? Will it be an intuitive workflow that truly gets used? I dont think you can answer these questions for me, but maybe with some discussion I can gain some confidence.
I have rackmount synths: Ensoniq ESQm, Korg EX800, Yamaha TX81Z, Akai S900, Waldorf Pulse and am always “shopping” for more. I love the charm and limitations of these knobless beasts. I also have these knobless keyboards: Casio CZ5000, DW8000, Kawai K3 and these Tubbatech upgrades SH101 and Juno 6.
Focusing on then rackmount stuff as priority, will it be very challenging to set those up?
