Re: what do you use for attenuation, inversion, offseting

I have two each of two favorite modules. Happy Nerding 3xMIA is my go-to for attenuation plus offsetting. I tend to use the three channels independently, but sometimes also for mixing. My other favorite is SSF Mixmode, another flexible mixer that can provide four independent channels of attenuation/...

Re: Has anybody got an unchanging Euro modular?

Interesting to see so many stable systems. My Eurorack module collection is constantly in flux. I notice which modules I'm not using as frequently, and get the 'I should use this more' feeling. But eventually that feeling turns into, 'I would really like something different in that space.' At the ot...

Re: Best random generator for musical phrases

I found the CGS Infinite Melody to be capable of making musical note progressions in the 1/f mode. Only for DIY, though. PC board and BOM is available at Modular Addict. https://modularaddict.com/manufacturer/cgs-synthdiy/cgs-cgs32-pcb Mine is built in a 5U MOTM panel. https://pugix.com/synth/catgir...

Re: Self generating patches....tips and ideas ?

I wondered about audio rate stuff when you first started talking about Quantussy cells since the Cocoquantus is capable of making its own sound, but the idea kinda fell by the wayside. So it's interesting to hear it done. Sounds rather magical. Thanks. And I also use my Quantisise (six Quantussy ce...

Re: Self generating patches....tips and ideas ?

Thanks for the comments. Yeah, still doing the Quantussy Cells thing.

This time I got the idea to use Quantussy cells (four in a ring) as an oscillator directly.

M.I. Peaks

Sold it; bought another; sold that one too.

Several times I have put up a module for sale on Reverb and then changed my mind and kept it. Not quite the same thing, but similar.

I'm still doing quantussy cells. Here, I enhanced each cell with an added envelope generator that is triggered by the LFO and CV'd by the same S&H that controls the LFO frequency (the CV has to be inverted into the EG, since higher voltage means slower fall rate).
