Considering nearly all those synths have absolutely no internal memories it's going to be interesting what's going to happen between the songs.

Maybe the x2 is a clue? One set being programmed whilst the other is being programmed?

Glad I bought my ticket early,should be amazing.

Oops!

Of course I meant one set being played whilst the other was being programmed.

with a bit of cabling he could have 'em running off the modular's sequencers... But yeah, there's probably some truth in that. There'll definitely be some frantic repatching between songs. Of course he could just be taking his two ARPs on tour to make the synth nerds even more jealous.
