Hi John,

I'll be going with the B series modules. (very nice design)
Thanks for the info on the mults and switches. I will have to rethink about
which ones I can use.

Of course, slipped my mind :) 
I won't be getting a sequencer at first since I plan to have software like
Logic, Numerology and Nortron as the brain interfacing with the synth via a
doepfer MCV24.

Whoa! These are some things I don't have a clue about and that's why I
wanted a modular system for the sheer control possibilities :) Are these
used only with a sequencer?

I think my first system will be quite basic until I can get the hang of it
so I'm aiming toward something for bass, leads and sequences. I make more
techno/electro/downbeat and I like to have everything under control and not
so much random aleatoric, but we'll have to see if that changes when the
modular is built :)
