I just picked up a used Matrixbrute. I don’t have room for it. It’s huge, weighs a ton, and is totally impractical. My buyer’s remorse is so heavy that I just spent all morning drinking shower beers and singing Band on the Run.
But I did it and there’s no turning back. Now I need a stand for it. It’s too deep for my current two-tier. Anyone out there with an MB and some stand advice?
I love my MatrixBrute. Seriously. It is the exact opposite of my Elektron Boxes (which, so far, I also love). It is about as close to one knob per function as you can get, with tons of functions and therefore tons of knobs and buttons, ergo the size and the weight.
Hey, what happened to your heavy buyer’s remorse? Just kidding. I think you will find it gives such immediate access to all kinds of sound manipulation. I love setting up the macro knobs to do a whole bunch of things simultaneously with the Matrix. Kind of like the A4 performance mode.
As for a stand, I had an old double x frame synth stand and threw thick piece of plywood on it 60 inches x 30 inches. Now I can fit the MB, my Mother 32, Cobalt8 and Strymon BlueSky on it. I have only moved it once (I actually bought a gig bag for it to bring to my cabin. I have used it exactly once, due to the weight and bulk). Maybe that’s why its not so popular (for gigging anyway).
