I love this module. In combination with he ADSR-VC2 and VCO-2RM it's the single best synth voice I've used, in 60hp.

(Basic mono synth patch with the ADSRs patched to cutoff and VCA CV on the MMF-1S and two of the outputs of the VCO-2RM into the audio inputs of the filter).

I use the E-RM Multiclock USB. It's a solution that works just like the Innerclock stuff. It's the only thing I've used for MIDI sync that seems to actually really just work reliably. It wasn't exactly a steal, but way cheaper than the Acme SND-4. (I use audio sync and the USB aspect of it only for ...
