I liked my minimal setup a lot better personally. I’d go back to it (MS20 Mini, A4 Moog M32). Also really digging on just the TR8S as a sketch pad. It’d be rad if it were drag on drop for samples, but it is still fast with the SD card. Make sounds or get sounds of the computer and onto the TR8S and start sketching out a track, record to DAW, go from there, maybe record a live jam to get an idea of structure/pacing.
I could probably even do w/o the A4, I felt like I never used any of its coolest features most of the time.
