Re: Cwejman SM-1

Spend $2000 on a module and half of these users have no idea how to use it. Lots of things in this world have an appeal but are confusing and take time to get your head around. Take the Octatrack - that thing has a manual and half the people who buy it can't figure out how the fucking thing works a...

Re: Erica Sample Drum Vs ALM Squid Salmple

Don't have the Erica and won't - I have the Squid, ALM build quality is great, reliable, top notch, firmware updates coming regularly with new features that are imaginative and useful. Such a fun module. I know Erica have their fans (I had an issue with a module bought direct from them) and again, I...

You need to do a deep dive on Ryuichi Sakamoto. One of the founding fathers of modern electronic music with 40+ years of superb releases under his belt.

Re: Filter for samples, field recordings etc.

Joranalogue Filter 8 is amazing with 8 different outputs and you can also switch it into an 8 output LFO Plus a ton of modulation and other cool features

Re: Why Suzanne Ciani hates Eurorack? (Or how I learned to stop worrying and love my performance modules)

Re: VERBOS ELECTRONICS

Are you using a quantizer in this patch by any chance? I’m not - from what I recall, I had the a saw coming out of the HO into the dual pole filter. Gate output from the mini-horse was pinging a few of the harmonics as I hit the keys. The two outputs from the VMS were sent into the CVP which was mi...

Using the pressure output from the mini horse to control the low pass filter is a lot of fun.

Re: Make Noise Pressure Points vs Verbos Mini Horse

The mini horse looks very cool, but there have been some reports that it can be quirky, uneven in its response. Some of this could be down to the power supply used. That said I had a brains pressure point combo that I had to return the perfect circuit because it wasn’t working properly… Just make su...

Re: Should I get a Verbos Sequence Selector? (+ patching puzzle)

I think the Sequence Selector is only a quantizer in the sense that a positive voltage (the actual range isn’t specified in what documentation is provided) at the “Analog” input will be apportioned across the five available steps in order to select a step to be active. This feature is very useful, ...

Re: Verbos Mini horse

I bought a Mini Horse this week. Fixed voltages, variable voltages, and gates worked as expected. Pressure voltages did not have a smooth response... audibly or on the scope. Not steppy exactly, but jagged. Easily tamed by patching through a slew. Position voltage not smooth, as above, but once aga...

Re: Synth Tech e520 Hyperion Stereo Audio Processor

I’m curious about the decision not to include any play controls, gate/trigger or 1 v/oct given that the unit can record up to six minutes of high-quality audio. I totally get that it is sold as an effects processor but it would be wonderful to be able to control playback of something that is mangled...

Re: 2013 Mac Pro VS 2019 iMac 5k for recording?

You want to watch out for the Apple computers with the T2 chip. It causes massive audio glitching problems that have not, to my knowledge, been resolved. How this passed muster with their QC is anybody's guess. My guess is, based on the totality of evidence, that they stopped giving a tinker's damn...

That works perfectly and takes either XLR or quarter inch mic cables, plus it has phantom power. I’ve got one for sale in the emporium right now.
