Paid my taxes like a good lad and put the return money towards building a small (48 HP) system. I won't bother saying anything else until things start trickling in next week, but I am excited.

You should be!

If I may, it's a veeeery wise decision to start small and go slow. The learning curve can be pretty intense so in my humble opinion, it's important to start with a small setup and a few simple modules to learn the bases.
Have fun!

First-time eurorack owner, but I am an Electroacoustics major and actually study modular synthesis at Uni lol. Our department has a rather large Doepfer system. I was actually going to mention in my prior post how satisfying it feels to be able to create a system which meets your own specific needs--48 HP is really all I need!

That's awesome. I have friends who did the same at the local school (electroacoustic classes) and there's a Synthi there! 48HP is too small for me, I like wide modules on which I can wiggle a lot...

Hah, funny enough I believe that the Doepfer system we currently have installed was financed by the sale of an EMS Synthi from the program's early days.

Best way to get started in a Eurorack setup? After a few years of putting it off I'd really like to get into it. I would love to get into soldering them myself too if it comes out cheaper.

DIY soldering is cheaper if you don't value your time :D

where about in the world are you? most of my recommendations for affordable starter stuff are EU/UK-centric.

here's the cheapest power option i've found - https://amzn.to/2Dl1VKf
built some DIY/kit ones with mixed success, this is easier and doesn't work out any more expensive really. Works well for me. One of those, some rails/a frame from https://synthracks.com/rails-frames and flying bus cables from thonk https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/bus-cables/ + some bits of wood/a suitable box/cardboard to put them in = cheap case.

...but even before getting any modules that adds up to more than i'd spent on some entire noise setups pre-eurorack tho :D

Thanks for those. I'm in the US, so I'll try to find similar items from domestic shops

My piece of advice, don't try to spend less on cheap power supplies. Meanwell PSUs suck. Go uZeus or 4ms Row Power, some modules are picky/demanding when it comes to power, others pick up the buzz from the PSUs. Same with bus boards. Shrouded ones are the best, flying ones, less so.
Also, if you plan to go cheap, maybe you should think about semi-modular synths first. I mean, with the amount of money you'd spend to get a decent modular synth you could buy a Polivoks fitted for midi in perfect condition...

Still in need of more modulation sources, EG and the like, but have managed to put this small system to good use with my MS-20 mini. Many pleasurable drones thanks to the Piston Honda/Clouds.

-Harvestman Piston Honda Wavetable osc.
-Make Noise Function
-Doepfer WASP filter clone
-DIY passive mult
-Ladik Random/Noise (has interesting 'geiger' output)
-DIY Mutable Instruments Clouds granular processor
-Pittsburgh MIDI2 to send clock/gates and free up the Function for more interesting applications

If I may, Maths is awesome, a bit intense but awesome. Batumi as an lfo as well.
A great source for modulation but a risky one to get into because the learning curve is definitely steep, is Ornament & Crime. It does tons of things, and incredible ones at that, but it's for an advanced level I think. I love mine but yeah, only skimming the surface on there.

Have been hunting for a Batumi second hand but no luck so far (though I see them around with some regularity). But a Maths is almost certainly going to be the next acquisition--such versatility.

Have you thought about creating an account and putting alerts on Modular Grid? You should try your luck out there.
