The beginning

After some research, I decided to go with Roger Arrick's (dotcom) brand for my first modular. They are a Texas-based company with excellent customer service and the best price/quality ratio. I started with the Entry-System monthly payment plan, and asked Roger Arrick to hold the first shipments for a few months in order to save some shipping expenses, so when I received my first shipment, it already contained a minimal but workable selection of modules.

This is me opening my first package on July 2005.

As you can see, Roger packs his stuff extremely well.

What was inside? A nice portable cabinet with power source, Q137 Power Interface, Q104 MIDI Interface, Q106 Oscillator, Q107 State Variable Filter, Q108 Amplifier, Q109 Envelope, and a few patch cables.

My first patch: a typical oscillator->filter->amplifier with gain controlled by the envelope.

And this is the first thing I recorded with this system: Modular1 track. As you can hear, even such a minimal setup can achieve a wide range of sounds.
