Well, I can say that when I first patched it up, I finally heard the sound I had been trying to get elsewhere with for years. I need to do a side by side comparison with the MOTM 490, as I haven't even patched something up like that yet.


Man I'm so psyched about this. Revisiting the SYSTEM 8 A demo gave me so much G.A.S. I'm very keen on getting something small like the 8A together with a Moog CP-251 in the future as an 'expansion' to my Euro system.

Me to, my GAS for a system 16 is overwelming. cry

Also, I hadn't scrolled to the right far enough, didn't see the "tempco" attempt (1% resistor with heat-transfer on the IC).


Probably is a tempco resistor not a 1% metal film resistor.
TYCO electronics produce tempco resistors that looks like normal 1% metal film resistor but colour codes are totally different.

Oh! Very interesting...thanks for the info.."I did not know that."
SynthBaron
I was able to calibrate the offending oscillator bank by scaling the driver and the individual oscillators. Now all 5 track nicely across the range of the keyboard:

Sounds nice!

Great!

Anxiously waiting for more sounds & a short review. Rockin' Banana!

Sounds really good thumbs up

How did you do that? Did you get the docs for the trimmers?

Anyway, it sounds awesome.
SynthBaron
There's an image of the PCB on the MOS-LAB website on the oscillator driver page. And it's a clone of the 921's, so I just used the Moog Modular calibration documents to do it.

I'll try and get more samples posted this weekend. I've been busier than usual.
nerdware
[slaps forehead] Thanks.
synthetic
Hah, cool. Nice thing about clones. Nice to see someone making (and shipping) cool stuff for 5U.

Considering a MU cabinet next for some of these so I'll be looking forward to your MOTM comparison.

I posted it earlier in this thread.

MOS-LAB 904-A (panned hard left) and MOTM 490 (panned hard right). I tried to get everything matched closely as possible. Around the middle of the sound file, I start overdriving the filters:

(82MB file)
SynthBaron
Oh, and my opinion is the MOS-LAB sounds "better" because of looser tolerances, but does suffer from what looks and sounds like CV bleed-through on the audio output (which I think is part of the Moog Modular sound). I think the MOTM is still perfectly fine though, and is not leaving my system.

My opinion is by the MOS-LAB if you're going for more than their filter module, or you want a real 904abc set. Otherwise, MOTM for voltage and format convenience.
synthetic
Well, the correct answer is to buy both of course. This is fun!

I'm more interested in the oscillators, but you answered my question. I checked out your filter demo already, but the level and cutoff sounds different to me.

I tried to get the CV response and audio levels as close as possible. But they each respond differently at different cutoffs.

Unacceptable.

Just kidding, thanks for posting that.
SynthBaron
Yeah, so I got curious with that "Tornado" thread and tried to patch one up:

http://synthbaron.com/moslabtornado.wav

I'll blame the "wind" sound on Hordijk phaser and MOTM-410 Triple Resonant Filter, but everything else is MOS-LAB.
Thalassa
Good sound, can be also "underwater breathing" with minor tweaks applause
Peake
I'm not sure how I feel about so close a clone being available...I feel good that it's easier to get to That Sound, but not that Moog CE might suffer in any way. I know that the MOS stuff and others cannot drop directly into a Moog system, and that the 921bs have hard sync instead of the original two-level soft sync, but still.

"Approach/Avoidance". Dang.
eXode
MOS-LAB seems to be doing some great stuff.

"Vocal" patch I've been messing around with this evening:

Sounds pretty cool. More like a mellotron cello than a voice to my ears though. Maybe try creating a white noise "ch" and adding to the attack? hmmm..... I'm tired . . .maybe not . . . Dead Banana
