Finally, years ago I was buying yet another hardware synth and J was like “really, how many can you play at once?”, my reply “well with the right patching, all of them at once”. I got hold of this sweet Motu Micro Express today, basically you can send midi signals from a DAW (your favorite software sequencer or Max/Ableton) out to the Motu box and then out to any of the individual (or all) separate midi DIN outputs (6 in total). Basically means everything is completely in sync (including my CV synths via a midi to cv conversion) to the DAW tempo including the drum machine, you can then take each audio back in individually and record in perfect time.
