Re: In praise of the A-111-6V

So lovely. I built a pod case around mine as a mini system with another 2hp osc, a function, a 2hp mixer an older disting,a CVPAL & a noise/random. The CV control over envelope time is something I don't have elsewhere, using it all the time. Just such a round pleasing character to the voice

How to recreate filter XFM from a Dark Energy MK1

My first semi modular was a Doepfer Dark Energy Mk1 that was stolen a couple of years ago. I tried to recreate and extend it in a little pod case, here: https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/414746 One thing I can't work out how to get to is the great gnarly XFM on the filter that as possible on ...

Re: Anyone with less than 7u 104hp?

It's been 3 years and I've stayed with 3U 126hp. Definitely a choice about constraining creative choice and containing cost. So, nothing goes in until something goes out of the case. It was about playing live with it too, the 126hp is about as much as I can handle in a live situation. Very happy wit...

Re: Plaits Percussion?

I'm using Plaits as my main percussion voice, Peaks doing the model cycling control and an elektron model:samples doing the sequencing through an FH-2, pitch/gate with velocity going to morph cv normally. Very wonderful to play thing.

Re: TRS to Floating Ring- just cut the ring?

Yeah, it's not that simple. If you cut the right wire in there it would work. But, you might be cutting cutting through braid/shielding and possibly have 4 conductors twisted around. I wouldn't trust the cable after that either. Better to make your own, or just get the Expert Sleepers which don't s...

Has anyone fit a Doepfer SEM filter into a PodX? It seems like the depth is exactly the same (55mm) which is cutting it pretty close. I've got a Doepfer a-111-6 mini synth in a podx & it is supposed to be 50mm, the extra 5mm is there underneath it but you are pretty much on the floor of the box & w...

Re: Today my small discovery was...

That the attenuverters on Plaits do more than that. If you have a trig coming into trig CV turning them applies the LPG envelope to Timbre or Morph opening new tone controls. Also the FM attenuverter is a glide control. Had not known either thing & it is a delight to now know.

Re: What are your patching and unpatching strategies for your modular synth?

No system, pile of cables on the table next to synth. Things tend to remain patched for recording & sequencing unless I need to use that module or have run out of cables or feel the need to go scorched earth completely unpatched. In which case all the cables just go at random into the pile again.

Small patching discovery of how you can get a lot of melodic variation with just two knobs: Mix two CV sequences (for example in channels 2 and 3 of Maths), and send the result via a quantizer to pitch in of an oscillator. One sequence is mildly varying, while the other has more voltage outliers. T...

Re: Chord oscillator for pad purposes

Perhaps like the OP I've felt the need for a supporting pad moving through changes rather than straight chord progressions in the regular sense & like others the straight root note locked chords aren't flexible enough (though plaits & braids are fantastic otherwise of course).
