Re: Missing Modules in the Format

These two photos just appeared on the 'Friends of Synthesizers.com' group on Facebook. Looks like Roger and company are working on something new. Possibly a twin oscillator version of the Q106?

Re: Stuffing the Dotcom 163 EuroRack Adapter?

Ran into the same 35HP limitation myself recently. My work-around (this time) was to cut two PCB standoffs from the back of the module to provide the extra 'behind the panel' clearance needed for it to fit. It appears we're going to have to be clever and possibly make some mods to shoehorn 36HP of m...

Re: Oooh, ahhh, that's how it always starts - Digital Modules in 5U

The 4ms Ensemble Oscillator is a brilliant bit of engineering IMHO. The shear amount of tones that can be coaxed from that digital module is simply amazing. Really wish there was a 5U version available. Ensemble Oscillator 2 minute demo (oscillator only - no additional processing): https://www.youtu...

Re: Stuffing the Dotcom 163 EuroRack Adapter?

Make sure your powering is heavy enough to support a couple of digital modules, which are more power hungry in general. 5U powering is designed for analog modules. Noted and covered. I ordered a QPS6+ to go with the QFC22 folding cab and Q163 Euro Adapter. Should be plenty of power for the adapter ...

Love it, that looks like a fun box. Post some pics once you have it filled out - I'm curious how you set that all up.

Stuffing the Dotcom 163 EuroRack Adapter?

Wondering how the folks who have the new Q163 adapter plan to fill it. I picked up a pair of digital oscillators for mine: the Mutable Instruments ‘Plaits’ (AKA SSL’s ’Woven Spirits’ in 5u) and the 4ms ‘Ensemble Oscillator’ (no 5U equivalent). As these are the first digi-oscillators in my rig, I’m e...

Re: Let the 5u fun begin

The Yammy FS1R and Argon8M are great front ends for some modular love! That is a really interesting concept. No CV on those modules so how might you use them in the 5U context? I honestly never thought of that. The idea is to use the FS1r or Argon provide the source audio, replacing the modular osc...

This dual VCA re-paneling project came together very quickly. The red switch caps were added to provide a touch of color.

I thought the main reason why ARP used sliders back in the day was to avoid looking like Moog (seriously).
