Re: 0-coast highest MIDI note

Hi everyone. First of all, I'm completely new. I got my first semi-modulars this past December and I'm really just learning how to use them for now. Far from composing a piece or anything like that. Yesterday, for the first time, I connected my 0-coast to my computer in order to receive MIDI notes....

Re: 0-coast highest MIDI note

I'll try to check this out later-- I rarely use MIDI but I would probably have noticed if it stopped responding to higher MIDI notes.

Re: weirdest possible functional modular

Mixer, slew, comparator. Repeat until space is used up. I don’t get it. None of these are sound sources (unless you feedback the mixer I suppose) or even create voltage on their own. What am I missing here? Many slews can cycle. I put this together in five minutes. I'd play it too. https://www.modu...

Re: Need help connecting reaktor to mother 32

Apologies if obvious but are you perhaps not getting the gate to work? I would do this to test: flip the VCA switch so that it's on and turn Mother 32 to a comfortable listening volume (you should hear the oscillator through the filter at this point). Try sending the notes from Reaktor to M32. Are t...

Re: weirdest possible functional modular

Probably this: no oscillators or filters that can be used as oscillators, but EV and VCM and Random Sampling can be patched for various drone/percussion noises and you could get some regular oscillators out of the VMS or Function in a pinch. :tu:

Re: Eurorack modules in line with Christian values?

I doubt this is a genuine thread, but I'm closing it because you've solicited responses only from Christians which discriminates against atheists and practitioners of other religions.

Re: R*S Rhythm/Dual VCA/÷N

Just last night I was thinking about how frustrating the ÷com is, in that it's hard-wired to the comparator's output with no input of its own. My annoyance at that was enough to make this a compelling module. I don't mind it-- you'd always need to send it through a comparator first, wouldn't you? A...

Re: Panning with LFO while skipping/not sounding the mid

Patch the signal to two VCAs, one panned left, one right. Use a bipolar LFO for the CV. Control the left VCA with this. Invert the CV to control the right VCA. A-Ha! Well done. And it occurs to me that you can then use the VCA 'Initial Gain' control on the two VCAs to control how much the volume wi...

Re: even odd pure math applications to synthesis

Struggling to understand this but this is something like the periodic waveforms that I've seen used to describe e.g. sawtooth or square waves with math in DSP. Would this work in software? I think I would understand how to use that equation to get even/odd but it would probably be at least 1 sample ...

Re: Mimeophon Question

I have the top of row of pressure points patched to MIX CV in. The panel control is fully CW. Stage 4 sends 8V to the input and is only giving me the wet signal. All the other stages are set to 0V so touching any of those turns it off (100% dry).

Re: MS-20 Mini Sounds Different Triggered via Midi vs SQ-1

It could be the duty cycle of the SQ1 vs the difference in note lengths of the MPC 16th notes. It sounds like the SQ1 has a longer duty cycle.

Re: Ideas for manipulation of VCOs without 1v/oct

Pulse division, too. You've probably seen videos of DUSG/Maths/NCOM arpeggios progressively dividing a very high frequency square wave. Similarly if you patch a high frequency oscillator into a S&H and you're sampling it more slowly it does a sample rate reduction thing that introduces artifacts and...

Re: KORG miniKORG 700FS

haha What a weird choice-- I've always felt this was a cool synth 'cause the Cure used it (if I am not mistaken...) but years ago I passed on a chance to buy one on Craig's List for ~ $400. Would be a pretty cool synth for a beginner if not for the price tag.

Re: Toggle to Gate on Mimeophon (help)

I tried this now and I think the easiest way is using something like Maths (but if you don't have Maths, the same idea will apply-- to use OR to combine two gates: One that is "the gate" and then another one through a trigger delay or as an envelope generator and using EOC like on channel 4 of Maths.

Here's something I discovered yesterday-- mixing envelopes can create ratcheting and if the two envelopes are patched to say, a lowpass filter and a VCA, the effect can be a little bit more dynamic than any of the classic, easier ways to patch ratcheting. Start with a traditional patch: OSC => LP Fi...
