Re: Pinkish Black

The members previous bands (The Great Tyrant and Yeti) are worth checking out as well. More kraut/zuehl than PB, but great stuff. Pinkish Black is the continuation of the Great Tyrant after losing their bass player.

Re: Problems with Serge Klangzeit panel

I've finally gotten my CGS WAD up and running after months of procrastination. I can't seem to tame the feedback. The knob is useful between about 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. Outside of this there is uncontrollable feedback. I've tried various trimmer setting to no avail. Any words of wisdom?

Re: Fess up, who is behind this XENOMORPH?

It will be a part for part clone and DIY only. Fenix 2s are being dissected and every part hand measured for accuracy. And will be very affordable compared to fenix 2 rising prices. Thats all I can disclose. Bert has zero plans to ever return to the fenix 2 project, so i dont see any political harm...

What is the spacing for the holes on the side? I use Intellijel 4u rack ears and am curious as to whether these are compatible. The rack ears have 2 sets of holes, one spaced 167.5mm apart and the other 88mm apart.

Re: Random*Source 4x4 on ModularGrid

I can't say for certain, I do not own a RS full panel. I do have a couple 4x4 panels. I don't think they will line up. The columns on a full panel are 1" apart, measured from the center of each hole. The 4x4 panels have 1" spacing within the panel, but the gap is 1.25" from one 4x4 panel to the adja...

Re: Random*Source 4x4 on ModularGrid

A full size Serge panel is 17 inches wide with 16 columns of knobs/jacks. RS 4x4 are desingned to fit 4 panels in the same 17 inch space. My guess is that MG has them calculated at 4" wide rather than the 4.25" that they actually are. Loudest Warning format makes use of the extra inch, giving you 17...

@rampy did you find anything? Links to the VCO build docs are indeed dead. I ended up emailing Matthias from Fonitronik, who in turn got the documents from Ralf at Random Source and sent them to me. He mentioned that he was going to put them back up on his website, but I have not checked to see if ...

Your 12.76khz clock rate should be fine according to Ken's test instructions. He says 15khz +/- 40% is the range (9k to 21k... someone correct me if I'm wrong here). Cygmu seems right about the attenuated sine being caused by the pot and 182k resistor. They clock rate is really dependent on the DEL...

Unfortunately only about 3.5v pp. My numbers are also slightly off on the clock, my signal is at ...

Plenty of power for 4 DIY Serge Panels (NCS1, NCS2, Swamp, Sturm und Drang), and I plan on squeezing a TKB in there as well. I made cables that are 4 pin XLR on one end ...
