Best Way to Obtain Red Matter
There are many ways of effectively obtaining Red Matter. But, the best way is by using an Energy Condenser to make the items necessary! If you have nothing else to do go mining and place all the items you got mining in the condenser to make it go by faster.
A secondary way of producing Red Matter that is less effort for the player is to have a Gem of Eternal Density, Black Hole Band, Destruction Catalyst or Catalytic Lens and possibly an Alchemy Bag then you go underground and right click until you are satisfied.
Another good way of getting Red Matter is to have one or more Energy Condensers creating Diamonds (or Gold, Iron, etc.) and sending them via pipes (whichever pipe you choose) to an Alchemical Chest with a Gem of Eternal Density in it.
Arguably the most efficient way to get red matter is to set up an Alchemical Chest with a Gem of Eternal Density. Place a DM Pedestal on top and one in front of the alchemical chest. Put a Black Hole Band into the DM Pedestal on top and a Harvest Goddess Band in the DM Pedestal in front of the Alchemical Chest. Then plant sugar cane around the Harvest Goddess Band and then turn both on. The sugar cane will instantly grow and then be instantly harvested by the Harvest Goddess Band. The Black Hole Band will suck the sugarcane into the Alchemical Chest, and the Gem of Eternal Density will convert it all into red matter. Optionally you may surround the sugar cane in glass so the black hole band doesn't accidentally pick anything else up.
