Re: Silentway Quantizer scale selection

Yes, I was using the VST3 version. I just changed it to the VST one, and all is well.

Thanks for the superfast reply, brilliant service!

Silentway Quantizer scale selection

I'm quite new to Silentway, and scratching my head over the quantizer scale selection. I have a CV going into the quantizer via the ES-7/ES-40 SPDIF inputs, and out through the ESX-8CV. It outputs a chromatic scale when 'Scale' is switched off, and the C major scale with it on, which is what I would...

Re: Cherry Audio free software for Covid-19 hunkerers

cheers for the heads-up - this is ok for a little freebie. One question to anyone else using it : I can't use it in my DAW ( Live ) on either my Mac or Windows machine - it'll only run standalone which severly limits it's usefulness. The Voltage Modular Bundles / .dll plug-in files are in the corre...

Re: 73-75 interference

Yes, 5A is well above what the panel would consume.

Is this a shop built panel, or DIY?

Re: 73-75 interference

I just checked my 73-75 voice panel, and there is no bleed between the oscillators, regardless of the pitch of either. Also, the envelope doesn't cause any interference in any of the modules. The only thing I noticed is the right frequency CV control on both VCOs varies the pitch slightly when moved...

Re: Any 73-75 word?

A BOCGS SWAMP looks like a good way to get the 73-75 stuff booping and beeping. Got any advice on best (most economical) way to buy it? Elby Designs in Australia sell the BOCGS panels & PCBS, in addition to component/hardware kits & boats/mounting kits. https://www.elby-designs.com/contents/en-us/d...

Re: Any 73-75 word?

A comment, based on my experience with the 73-75 Voice 'eDIY kit': just buy the built one. Especially if you want it in the (very nice) 73-75 boat with power supply. Why? The cost savings is less than $100, when you add up the cost of the eDIY kit, the boat kit, the parts needed to complete the pan...

Yes, one of mine also had an alarming scraping noise, until I found a little splinter left over.

The orientation is easy to understand if you note that the 2 sets of Rollz, Gongues, AVdogs and Ultrasound, are laid out as mirror images of each other, and the pots reflect this layout. Also, when I first got my PB2, some of the pots were stiffer than others. I found that some of the knobs were pus...

Yup, though I suspect my earlier point was the deciding factor. A proper h series preset manager would be a decent compromise (assuming that range is expanded) so that folk could pair it with a wider range of choices.
