The 84HP rig which will be built in this series was inspired from the many excellent ambient eurorack videos on YouTube. Listening to and making high BPM tracks is all good but sometimes you just need to chill and zone out :) For a quick sampling of ambient music check out these eurorack musicians on YouTube:
Here's a recent one from Mike:
You'll notice from the above videos that one or usually more Mutable Instruments modules will be used in their sets to sonically create meditative landscapes. This made it easy to focus my modules research and move onto the next steps quickly.
To achieve my secondary goal of doing more with less I decided to go with the Tiptop Audio Happy Ending Kit. As it comes with a spare flying bus board cable the HEK makes it easy to expand the rig in the future by adding just a pair of eurorack rails and HEK ears. The goal is to start small but not stay small :)
