Starting a 16space frac synth (possibly)
MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Fractional Rack Modules  
Author Starting a 16space frac synth (possibly)
Phineous
I own a 33space dot.com 5u system (love it).

I have 2x16space racks just screaming for new modular love.

Do to space contraints (and cost) I am seriously considering filling one of the said racks with Blacet and motm fracs (STG and Encore freq shifter as well).

My question is: Compatability.

Is there any voltage concerns? (I assume all I need is a 1/8 to 1/4 panel)

The plan is to order the Classic Rack along with two empty Blacet racks. (I hope to start buying some kits)

My dot.com 5u is uber sexy and quite the monster for thick minimoogish solid lines, but frac seems to best fit my budget and space requirments.

Also I really want to get into DIY kits.
I have also developed a passion for self generating Glitch patches nanners

It's really all about compatability, I hope they play well together!

I have 3 racks of frac and 3 racks of ModcanB. I treat them as one synth, cross-patching between formats with no issues.
Dotcom should be the same.
Good luck. Make sure you get a Binary Zone SlayerBadger!

Excellent news!

What are lead times like over at Blacet?

I foresee a 2-4 module a month binge coming on.

/e starts shaking as the addiction hits full swing d'oh!

Is there a frac patch thred?

I haven't ordered a module from Blacet in a little while, but in the past I always received whatever I ordered in a about week to 10 days. SlayerBadger!

+1 on getting a binary zone - they're brilliant!

I've ordered a number of modules from Blacet over the last few months and I usually receive my orders from Blacet here in Australia in a couple of weeks.

Cheers,

Man that deul Macbeth euro osc sure looks nice!

I took the plunge and ordered a blacet rack with power, 2 cable packs and a Binary Zone! w00t

Mini Wave (with expanded EPROM ) and Filthy Filter next week!

I am also really interested in Metalbox customising my rack ears with muti's and 1/4-1/8 patch panels.

Anyone have modded rack ears from Metalbox?

I really cant wait to patch them into my 33space 3 OSC DotcoM system.

TY for the info

Rack ears rule! I plan on adding an 8008 and ASR to my ears later this year.

I've added a MFB Dual LFO into my left ear and tonight I'm adding a Blacet LFO into the right ear. ABUSE THE SPACE! Top ears i'm doing a 1/8" > banana panel on the left and the right will be all momentary switches so you can patch into it and stop/ or continue the signal. Go for it!!! smile

Get the EG-1. Dotcom doesn't have a VC envelope, the EG-1 is great.
It can function as a slew limiter(voltage controlled slew!), oscillator, LFO, AD, and ADSR.
Check out this thread
Get two of them.

Warp speed.

Nope. they both run on +15.
I have 2 blacet racks sitting right above a rack of dotcom modules running on the same power supply. They play nice together.
If you use/get the EG-1 and want to use it with the Q108 VCA, attenuate the EG-1's output using the onboard attenuator(that is so so cool that there is an attenuator on the EG-1), because I think that the Q108 is looking for +5 volts(like what the Q109 spits out).

I haven't yet, but I want to.
Blacet doesn't recommend or encourage modules or modifications to the rack ears, but plenty of people do it successfully.

I use the dotcom for utilities and basic modules, and the blacet for obscurities and fun stuff that dotcom doesn't offer.
I think you will be really satisfied with how well they compliment eachother.

There are a few "patches n tips" type threads for some individual modules, but I can't say I remember a dedicated thread for all blacet modules(I am going to search right now just to make sure),
One fun patch is:
Binary Zone to Q106 1v/O input
EG-1 to Q106 linear FM input
EG-1 inverted out to Q106 pulsewidth CV input Trampoline

Since you have a Binary Zone, pick up a Window Comparator too.
Feed the output of the window comparator to the Binary Zone clock input,
then use an LFO to modulate the ramp of the Window Comparator (patch into ramp cv in)
Glitchy,spurty broken sounds... 8_)

Excellent post!

I was thinking as you, the frac would give me more modern esoteric modules and use the dotcom/motm for staples.

I will pick up a Window Comparator aswell as the EG-1

TY for the tip. thumbs up

That makes me happy to know you found the post useful! SlayerBadger!
Looking forward to seeing and hearing your dotcom/frac mutant! BOOM!
