Re: External eurorack mixer

I've been liking the idea of a euro format mixer stuck into just like a 4ms pod enclosure as it's own thing. I'd think you'd want to cv fun things like panning and stuff, which wouldn't be possible with a regular makie type of mixer. Depends. I'd say a regular Desktop mixer can do way more than a m...

Re: Can you drill holes into a blind panel made of PCB material?

Yes, it will drill fine. FR4 material is made of resin and you consider a respirator & good ventilation when working with resin dust because it is a sensitizer (i.e. you can become allergic to it after exposure), though drilling small holes won't kick up much dust. Also 2 HP is very small and fragi...

Can you drill holes into a blind panel made of PCB material?

Well, the thread title says it. Today I received some blind panels I ordered. I wanted to make some multiples of them. But as I unboxed the panels I found out that they're not made of black painted aluminium but of that PCB material (what's it called BTW?) So quick question: Can I drill holes into t...

Re: External eurorack mixer

Yes. Simply use a standard mixing desk and adapter cables. Bonus: You can plug anything from microphones up to modular level signals into them. They cost much less than a modular final stage mixer and are easily available everywhere.

Re: 2 sequencers to the same VCO

A problem with a switch is that sequencers may not output the same voltages for the same notes (the 1V/oct standard is relative, not absolute; and Rene, for example, is notorious for outputting a small positive voltage at its lowest note). Thus, if using a switch, your VCO may go out of tune when y...

Re: Small panning modules.

The new Erica Pico VCA is a dual VCA in 3HP. One channel has a manual offset. So you'd only need an Inverter and two multiples you might already have to patch a panning VCA.

Re: Quantized gate delay modules?

It might not be as accurate as you want but you can patch a quantized gate delay with a gate delay and a sample and hold: Gate delay output into S&H signal in and Master clock into S&H clock Input. The S&H will output quantized gates. This will only work if you adjust the gate lenghts the delay puts...

You could buy an Arturia Keystep. It has CV and gate outputs. So you can plug it directly into your modular without a MIDI/CV convertor module.

I own a MPC one and think it's CV sequencing capabilities are rather limited. This is mostly due to how the CV programs are implemented.

Re: Sequencers - reset response and other gritty details

Reset has always been an issue for me. Most of my sequencers react unconsistently to a reset pulse. I think it's due to the timing of the reset pulse. Maybe it should have a slight timing offset so the reset trigger won't come in at the same time as the clock pulse. I think I read somewhere that th...

Re: Doepfer A-133-2 Mod Input uses?

It is to polarize the signal No, the main CV input does that (like on the original A133), the mod input controls the amount of CV. Confusingly the mod input CV range is -5v to +5v with -5v being zero modulation (though apparently this can be changed). You could use that input for conventional VCA d...

Odddball answer maybe, but: A multiple.

Clock a CV sequencer with the output of an euclidean sequencer. Bonus: You can get creative by resetting the two sequencers with different outputs of a clock divider.
