I was thinking about an es rack to add to my mo.

It would basically be the same thing right?

Except it should have more outputs, how about more arps?

I mean it would have the same amount of phrases but I could use more than one at a time?

Anything else?

In answer to my own question…

It looks to me like besides twice the polyphony there is 8 insert FX, I was thinking the mo has 3? Or was that the SW…
More presets.

Looks like one arpeggiator.

I’m not sure I understand your plan. If you are going to add a rack synth to your rig, wouldn’t you want something different to augment and complement the features and sounds of your MO, rather than just more of the same?

But I like the sounds of the mo and I can usually find what I’m looking for.

To get the ‘good’ sound I mainly use voice mode then I only have one voice at a time so having 8 extra voices would speed up the workflow, may be. I could leave things in midi and not have to convert voices to wav to access other voices.

I don’t know, I probably need more equipment like a hole in the head.

Hi Tacman7,

I must have a hole in my head also, well at least my wife cant understand why I need another keyboard.

I have an rack ES and am looking at buying a MO6.

I need a another decent keyboard to run the rack and also want to load a lot of the voice libraries I have bought from keyfax and install on the MO6.
Those libraries from keyfax open up the ES even more, I couldnt believe the voices you can get out of this box.
An extra arp is of course very handy also and the ability to create user arps and or load arps.
The rack doesnt have user arps nor can they be loaded.
And I also like the MO6 sequencer features
Hooking the 2 together should get some awesome voice combinations.
Like you I think the voices and performance features of both the MO6 and the ES rack are awesome.

Do you have any recordings from your MO6 that you have created that I could listen to ?
no drama if you havent..

let us know how you go.
