Now that I've collected my thoughts, I will respond in complete sentences.
This setup looks fantastic! And the fact that you've been collecting for seven years is awesome. I've done a bit of electronic music production, mostly limited to chiptune or 8bit style production. A project I've kept on teh back burner for years is building a homemade synth with the hopes of growing it into a spaghetti patch cabled modular frankenstein if I got hooked. I'd love to sit down with you and just riff about (what little I know about) signals and their modification.
I also work in IT and brew wine of questionable quality.
