AS3397

A keyword search doesn't show any existing threads about it . . . (but maybe I've been away for too long :) ) Alfa Rpar have another goodie in the pipeline: The AS 3397. Dual Analogue waveshaping, a VCF, and VCAs. It's designed to be used with digitally-generated square waves. Datasheet says typical...

Re: Coloured panels on DIY modules...

Black Text on White or cream panels looks attractive, is easy to read (very nearly as easy as the reverse) and ages well. It is also unlikely to piss you off some time down the line, when you may regret going for a garish colour in a moment of enthusiasm :) I would avoid blue, green and red - simple...

Re: Behringer Solina

Is the string sound of Solina String Ensamble (preferable mk2) and Eminent 310 (same fabrication, sounds more lush to me but never played an Eminent) the same or does it differ? The eminent 310U allows you to put organ registrations as well as strings through the distinctive and widely copied tripl...

@ Feinstrom - Elby designs in Australia make MIDI to trigger converters with velocity-responsive outputs. Details here: Elby MIDI to trigger The MIDI-retrofit-8 is a pre-built, 1U 8 - channel MIDI to trigger unit available, or if you (or a friend) are reasonably DIY handy, there are DIY options - e...

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

It says Made in USA on the blue one. So clearly someone is lying. AFAIK, the blue one came first, B then made the silver model, and tried to sue critics on gearslutz who pointed out its extreme similarity and lost the lawsuit.

Re: Behringer Pro 800, Prophet 600 clone

If it's a Para800 instead of a Poly800? No thanks. It's quite possibly a full polysynth. Looking at the lower PCB in the photo in the first post, you can see 8 columns of ICs and components that are the same. I'd wager that they are the 8 voices. It's certainly possible with smd to get a complete s...

Re: pedantic sorting

That type of resistor was used in some old vintage combo organs, like Farfisas and possibly Voxes, from the 60's and early 70's, and quite likely in older guitar amps and so on too, so they are not * entirely * worthless. :)

Some restoration folks might be interested if you decide to get rid of them.

I thought Randy was responding to Sinamsis' comments about the Roli. . .

The inclusion of 5-pin DIN MIDI on the Osmose is what swung me to pre-order one. :)

Thanks KSS for the info. Indeed - not all Wigglers are end-users only.

Re: Erica Synths BBD Delay/Flanger Step by Step

For most uses, a higher voltage rating on a cap is absolutely fine as long as the capacitor physically fits the space. An exception could be with PSU smoothing caps - if a higher voltage rating means they are significantly physically larger, they may end up being too close to a source of heat like a...
