Behringer should make Eurorack modules based on their stompboxes

I would love to see Behringer release their stompboxes as Eurorack modules. This would bring a livery of colorful effects units to the Eurorack format, and encourage greater creativity in the burgeoning  modular synthesizer environment. Here are some mock-ups I made to show Behringer my suggestion.

Hello World

Hi guys! I haven't done squat with this website for years, and it was attracting a bunch of spammy posts, so I wiped out everything today and will start making new posts soon.

Those are photos of my home studio from 2010-2011. I've since sold off most of my hardware synthesizers. My PC DAW died, an HP dual-Xeon. It's been replaced with a 2008 model dual Xeon Mac Pro, and I'm working mostly in Logic because of the awful experiences I had with Pro Tools back in the old home studio. I'll post some new pics eventually.

Last year I updated most of my Logic recordings to the new Logic Pro X format. This year I'll be updating my Cubase 4/5/6 recordings to Cubase 8.5. I'm excited by having the opportunity to learn new software tools, such as the AIR Instrument Expansion Pack and the Izotope Creative Bundle. I also updated to Arturia V Collection 4 and to Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate 9 last year, so I expect the new sounds to influence the direction of my music. That's like 100 new instruments, trying to fill the void in my soul after selling off two racks of some of the greatest hardware synthesizers ever made.

In October 2015 I began performing live with an amazing classical violinist, Judy Lei. She needs a website, so I cannot post any links until she gets that going.

Check out my website to learn more about me,

Check out my SoundCloud account, to hear a few of my songs.

If you need to recover the sounds from a dead synth from the 1980's or 1990's, I may be able to help you with a Vintage Synth Rescue Kit.
