Re: Why do people subscribe to using a format that likely makes it more difficult for them to be creative?

But isn’t it very well possible that people are expending their creativity and energy designing a perfect system while actually sacrificing the ideas that they are designing it for? How's that?

Is the motivation more about buildings ones “dream instrument” than wishing to express something unique? compared to other modular formats? :despair: Banana systems are nicer IMHO, eurorack is cramped compared to other formats. But it's fine for man...

Re: Why do people subscribe to using a format that likely makes it more difficult for them to be creative?

Wonder how difficult it was to use a fairlight when it first came out. It's probably more difficult to program now. HEH! that's why the early RevCo stuff is what it is. Al Jourgensen got the Fairlight, but no one could figure out how to sequence it more than 16 steps. So that became part of their "...

Re: Power Supply for Synton Fenix 1

as long as the pins are right(+and-) that should be fine. 17v may sound better... -more headroom(?), but it shouldn't be noticeable.

this looks great! Just wish it was 805! Haven't had much luck with 603(resistors and caps are fine) Looking at the build files, the passive components have plenty of space around them and from my experience, you can still solder 0805 on 0603 pads. It may overshoot every so slightly. thanks! may try...
