i usually find feeding audio/audiorate signals into CV inputs tends to be interesting. While I knew about FMing filters for quite a while, it took me forever to think of FMing a VCA. Gives an interesting breathy effect when I've tried it in the past. Note to self: try FMing a VCA that is attenuatin...

Also just a note, and you probably already know this but there's a decent amount of logic you can pull from the mixmod on the envelators with different patching scenarios. Also some bizarre stuff in the low mode on the Waveform City. But yeah a dedicated logic module would be amazing. Care to expan...

(...) If I buy a lot of gear in a short period of time all of my my music making moments will go to unboxing, connecting, testing and so on. :confused: That's a great point!

That's cool that you like GAS! Was a fave of mine from the first EP to "Königsforst". But I think the first EP & first album were mostly reverted and slowed down disco/ glam rock guitar samples plus a few synth pads, and Schubert and Wagner only came in on "Zauberberg". At least that's what it sound...

Re: 5u and creative selling..?

@OP (didn't read the rest of the thread): I'm becoming an oldtimer, was new to modular in the late 90s. Back then there were no internet demos beyond a few lo-fi mp3s. We mainly relied on discussion with friends or lists like AH/ SDIY and on the occassional hands-on demo by an acquaintance of a frie...

It's envelopes like these that sometimes make me think about starting a 5U system after I used to have zero interest in the format when it was mostly plain, non-VC ADSRs. I'm a Wiard user and often patch up complex, arbitrary envelopes from the AD/AR/LFO plus the Sequantizer (which as a combo can pr...

@OP, you should put your question back where it was AND let us know HOW you solved it. Deleting/ omitting either defeates the purpose of a forum and it wastes the time of people searching the forum for the terms you and the responders used.

P.S. Another idea I tried myself and have gotten good feedback on from others: if you want to go the exploration route/ stick to the system, limit yourself to, say, 10 short patchcords for, say, four months. The pink MN ones have an ideal length for that. This enforces a different kind of creativity...

That's why I recommended the Wiard, and would have recommended the XL second place - you can go in either direction with them, standard patches for "work" (which is also what I took your interest in the XL for) as well as what you describe (fun, meditation, novelty/ unexpected stuff).

Whether separate or together, I'd put them on (a) rear rail(s), then leave empty spaces or ventilation grilles above and below. Makes for better emission of heat than mounting to a wooden side panel, and also better distribution of weight.

The Evenfall Minimodular is 3U, 19" including ears, and runs on +/-15V and was designed by musician & long time Serge user Chris MacDonald with help from Grant Richter.

I can only reply to what you wrote, not what you think. And you asked for info on Frac vs Euro, which (plus other things) suggested you have at least some gap somewhere between 1974 and now. "Historical" means a course of things, not something static. So, nevermind if you felt unfairly criticized. B...

To call a few specific points a baselass debate is uncalled for. I applaud your bravado but you need to polish up your knowledge on some things.

Cool idea. What about adding past manufacturers (like Plan B) for a historical perspective? And of course, why only Eurorack? Three points against exclusivity: 1) some companies go across formats (e.g. Synthtech: 5U, Frac, Euro), 2) many designers' works have crossed formats over the years (e.g. Ser...

Thanks for posting this. I prefered the first recordings for at least the first half of the file.
