Re: Microgranny alternatives

maybe have a look at a older generation Roland SP-404. As far as I know it can record straight to a memory card, is quite intuitive, and has a few good effects. Otherwise it depend whether you want to record short loops or longer tracks. There are indeed a few looper pedals that also allow to save l...

Re: 'Logic/Utility Box' for semi modulars

I mean something like the Make Noise Maths and some more utilites/logic/LFO's and potentially some currently modular-only stuff crammed into a standalone product. Does something like that exist. It should right? why should it exist? And who want stuff "crammed" into something? MakeNoise Maths, util...

Re: MC-101 Questions

My question is, does it make you want a 707 or are you happy with the 101 ? both! I think the mc 707 is quite tempting. The possibility to actually edit voices is a big plus. So is the screen and the ability to record phrases and sample. So the 707 offers quite a bit more than just a 'double 101'. ...

I don’t have mine with me, but I think you have to go into each track and tell it to turn midi out on. :tu: thanks, that was it! I was looking in the setting menu, [shift] + [mod], where the channel is set, but then I did not turn on the midi out in the [shift] + [track #] menu. There are a lot of ...

Re: MC-101 Questions

a quick question ... I could not resist to pick up a MC-101 (although, of course, I do not 'need' it). And really like it so far, a lot of fun. Roland did a lot right this case. One thing I cannot figure out, maybe someone can provide a hint: I do not seem to be able to make it send midi data at the...

Re: dead simple sh-101 style poly midi sequencing?

i want to accomplish this as simply and cleanly as possible, basically exactly what the sh-01a already does but do it with 6-8 note poly, and without the synth side of things. just a sequencer, just midi in/out and trig/gate clock in. seems simple, seems like someone else may have already made this...

i strongly doubt there are any old gems to be found. The older 'grooveboxes' were all quite large and not none did a 303 very well. The MC-101 looks indeed interesting (albeit a bit expensive). Another thing to look at is (still) the Novation Circuit. It is easily dismissed as a toy but it is really...

Your mistaking gain function for part type. Whether or not the signal has a positive gain amount doesn't really matter. A VCA is an amplifier, and some have a maximum gain of 0. Even when they are used at very very low gain, the signal passes through the amplifier. no I am not. If you had read my p...

I thought VCA stood for 'Voltage Controlled Amplifier'. It certainly does. The article is incorrect. well, as said above ... some people do indeed refer to VCAs as voltage controlled attenuators. And, techniqually, it is correct: most VCA attenuate and do not amplify anything. Also in your case, i ...

I don't think it's a wave table VCO.

Since we are using eurorack power supplies, it means +12v and ground, which then means only "+6v/-6v" for these circuits. You'd need to boost the signal and in the same time boost the noise etc. ok, but would it not be possible to use a 'proper' bipolar voltage from the eurorack supply. MFOS recomm...

an alternative might be to make headers on the back of each module for normalization and then add a 3-4 hp input module that does the gate-trigger conversion, and directly feeds into the jacks (either via normalization or, maybe better with an OR gate). Then those who want straight triggers can use ...

did you check what the problem is: Is the amplitude not high enough? Or the attack of the envelope not fast enough. You can vary these parameters individually and check what works.

probably more useful than the volca mix depending on what your usage needs are. a tiny mixer isn't really good for sliders and actual dynamic mixing anyway! sure. it is mostly to add some signals.
