Live synth rig

Looking forward to seeing folks tomorrow for my first synth show! My live synth rig isn’t terribly complex but it does have way to many points of failure. Missing a single cable can spell disaster so I’ve come up with a preflight checklist. I’m posting it here not only so the interested might peruse it but also so there’s no way I can lose the damn thing. (Curse it all, I’ve lost the interwebs! Where are those bloody why-fies???).

    • prophet hold pedal
