I really would like to find a way to transpose a single stage of the metropolis, (i.e. stage 3) without transposing the whole sequence. This would really let the metropolis break out of 8 step sequences, which seems a bit short. Hoping more modulation options for Aux A & B (such as this one) will be...

I would say vintage synths sound different. Some people will think it sound better (like me) some people will prefer newer manufactured synths. I really question the discriminatory abilities of those who think vintage analog, new analog and plugins (???) sound the same. But people look for different...

Something I would like to see added as a feature to the metropolis is the ability to transpose a single stage via Aux A or B. For example, be able to select "Transpose Stage 3", and have a CV signal transpose the pitch of that fader for you. It would allow for MUCH much more complex compositions. Da...

I have a uVCF as well, that doesn't track more than 1 octave when self-oscillating (I've got all the settings correct). I haven't tried calibrating it yet, thought it would be still holding the calibration from the factory.

Hi STG, thanks for letting me know. I thought that just putting a multimeter in between the power supply and and the module would do for current draw, but I guess you'd need two multimeters for a bipolar power supply and that would be pretty fiddly so thats why you'd need a bench supply with a curre...

stg .vca current draw?

Quick question, does anyone know what the current draw is for the STG .vca module? I'm sure it isn't much, but would like to know.

STG .vca is nice.

It has no built in attenuators so I suppose it might cause issues with some envelopes not totally closing if you don't run the control signal through an external attenuator first.

Intellijel dubmix?

If you want one input going to 3-4 outputs that are CV controllable, how about a (buffered) mult and any VCA module that has a bunch of VCAs or a couple dual VCA modules.

The only issue I have had is sometimes when patching wildly I wonder why nothing is happening, then I notice the plug is only halfway in. This has happened with jacks other than malekko too.

Well, other than being more fiddly to repair/mod, that seems like a reasonable hybrid approach. Key capacitors in the signal path, especially larger electrolytics and polypropylene/polystyrene film would seem like good places where not to go SMT. (While coupling ones for a chip, usually ceramic, are...

Besides, the new Audio Precision test sets, that are the only valid way to measure small differences, are about 95% SMT.

bizarre. I never said anything about mythical magical properties. However, regarding the perception of sound, there are very nuanced and extremely complex factors involved.

Choices that make a circuit "perform" better (which can be quantified, based on measures of performance) may at the same time make the circuit "sound" better to one person but worse to another (harder to quantify). The quantifiable measurements that might show surface-mount components as "performing...

if a circuit designer is designing something with the goal of being able to be "skiff" friendly format with 1 parallel PCB 100% SMT, they will make different design decisions than if they had more working space to go with and the ability to use a hybrid SMT and through-hole design. This is just 100...

AudioFetish I have a STG .vca that is all through-hole. I like it a lot. And it did sort of work out that my humble euro beginning is almost all SMT. I think because it is popular for the eurorack format stuff, which is know for being small and cheap. But I don't mind having some modules that are l...

Module makers who use through-hole components?

Hi, I'm wondering if there are eurorack module making companies that regularly use through-hole instead of surface mount components. I am not into the super-thin "skiffable" module trend which I think constrains design choices on the part of module designers and encourages 100% surface mount technol...

I have gotten some bizzare "shorting"(?) behaviour with stackables. i.e. cv from outs going to other outs or ins to other ins.

I suppose a mult module can have diodes in it directing the electrons and preventing this two-way traffic.

Hasn't caused any problems though, other than unintented sounds.
