Maybe a new coat of paint and a membership-pimping announcement is called for?

TSRL logo
As I went shopping for B-Day gifts for a couple of near three year old nieces (they're cousins actually,) I made a stop at the Southpark Ray-Dee-Oh Shanty to see if they had some parts to further along the glacier that is the studio build. 
Found: a couple of female RCA -> 1/8" mono adapters, and a right angle 1/8" stereo adapter.

The RCAs are for connecting the SK-1 up to the Core™. All I need is to find a suitable wall-wart P/S for it. While connecting it up, I grabbed some of the split-side conduit and threaded the Cheez-O sampler leads that were just hooked up, as well as the MIDI and audio lines coming from the DS-8. Now it looks really tight down there, but I'll probably replace it sometime later with a longer length of conduit of a different color. Not really critical at this point. Next piece of hardware is the percussion controller that is still closeted at this point. I'll be using a snare stand for it; fits like a dream!

The 1/8" right angle? That is for Portabrayne so I can use external speakers without accidentally moshing the cable or the laptop's audio-out jack.

No, I don't have this axe anymore. One of my brothers has it now. Too bad it needs a new neck, truss bar won't hold adjustment.

Sorry about that, this message was originally intended for the Community Pimp LJ comm.

Made a trip to Guitar Center to buy a couple of things for the rack and check out a keyboard or three. Low and behold, hanging off the wall in the bass section, a red Jaguar bass (Joy)! I had to resist the urge to try it out, or I'd end up taking it back to Balconyland with me; that's how I ended up with "Bela" (as in Legosi), my Epi EB-3 about three years ago.

The_Bassist, Jammin'
What I've been doing lately. I'm doing a rack project so I can compose my own noise again, so I'm reposting what I've done so far.

Instead of posting the picture directly here in my LJ and your F-List, I'll just link over.

And @ 8:04 pm that same day:

I found Velcro and pack of Avery file folder labels to used as cable tags. Anything else that I might need at the last minute (audio or MIDI cables to replace bad ones,) will just have to wait until next week.

Like last post, digipix here.

Here's what will be going into the rack, via direct bolt-in the rails (Unless noted):
Clock-wise top right:
Kustom power conditioner with lights.

Korg DDD-1 drum machine/sound module (will be on bottom of rack for time being)

Slide-out shelf where some stompboxes will reside in place of the current Boss BX-8 stereo mixer, that will be removed to be a tabletop unit again.

Oberheim Matrix-1000 (a.k.a.: Obie Matrix-1k) analog synth.

ProCo PM-148 unbalanced audio patchbay.

(Side by side on one shelf) Korg 05R/W wavetable tone generator, Boss SE-50 multi-fx.

Alesis Data-Disk (oops, upside down!) librarian/sequence recorder-playback. Will be included for now, may be replaced with some other tone mod or fx unit down the line.

Cooper Electronics MSB+ Rev.2 MIDI patchbay.
What does this have to do with anything?

1. Get some content on this board, which it is in dire need of.
2. Synths does bass easily!
