Ipad 3 used to work fine with iOS-7, but once iOS-8 appeared (and all later iterations)
then iPad 3 always freezes when you open the ap.
There was some initial interest in this problem from BEMI, but it never came to anything... :confused:

:eek: :yay:
The power of this module is gob-smacking!
Imagine trying to do this with any other synth with just 3 or 4 patchchords...

Super stuff Todd - this is really putting the 296e into perspective as a brilliant creative device.
A true legacy to Don Buchla.

Another inspiring video Todd. Who needs a drum machine :party: I'll have to see if my 267e can create the same effect :hmm: Thank you for sharing Todd. A very powerful patch, even more if you add a 291e or 296e. :hail: Yes - definitely - we need more 296e videos. Very few have been produced. It's a ...

It depends on which iPad you are using.

After iOS7 I was never able to get it working on my iPad 3 and others had the same problem. :bang:

My Skylab last year certainly came with the 1/4" outs factory fitted.

You can just make up a 10 pin IDC connector using a long cable. I think the 223e comes with about a 15", so you are just making a much longer version of that. But if there is not a correct hole for the 223e module mounting socket in the boat you want to use, then just unplug it from the pcb and put ...

I would. If I were in charge of Marketing or Sales @ Moog, I would insist that we sell it, for $50 a pop (even if it cost $49 to product). Spread the wealth, the history and the legacy.
