Re: Decay slopes

If I increase decay to 60ms. I should be able to make it sound near enough identical to the original sound by decr...

Re: Your go to final VCA?

Re: Your favourite traditional LFO and VCO shape?

Sine and sine. Caressive and beautiful. No filters needed. Do you additive synth? Yeah, but sometimes I tweak and tweak and suddenly I find the most beautiful sound; silky and clean. And, as you already figured out, it turns out to be a pure sine. I think that a sine through a VCA controlled by som...

Re: Your favourite traditional LFO and VCO shape?

1. Saw is my fav for LFO. I love the sound of something (VCO pitch, LPF or crossfader) snapping up and then falling down.

2. For a VCO: Although I love the versatility of the saw/ramp wave sound, triangles can be pretty beautiful so I'm gonna say triangle.

Your favourite traditional LFO and VCO shape?

Complex VCOs, wavetables, wave manglers, step aside. Let's get back to basics. Triangle Saw (down). Ramp (up) Square Pulse Sine 1. For LFO consider their functionality without being FM'd or mixed with other waveforms etc. Just what can you do with it by itself. Basic VCA usage to turn it on/off or f...

Re: Best looking single origin Eurorack (aesthetics only)

If I was going to do this I would choose a company that uses well spaced modules that have nice big knobs. The Pittsburgh knobs (especially the big ones are so nice to turn with one finger). But I'm sure that some companies are even better. This giant knob on my Pittsburgh is slightly non-round and ...

the high(er) voltage in the power sockets in your house are insulated w just regular electrical tape, surely that will suffice to insulate the board inside the case.
It should yes as long as it stays in place.

Re: insulating a power strip

Hi everyone. Kinda obvious question but I have a power strip extension in my case (I forget the name, think it was erica synths? anyway you glue it onto the case and you can use it to supply more modules) it has the plastic outer bits with a notch so you cannot load power strips the wrong way. Anyw...

Re: insulating a power strip

If it is as you described it should be fine. You could also stick a dummy cable or header in there too but that will raise the height up on that socket just a bit. Yeah I was thinking this too but didn't know if such a thing existed. I'll have a look. It should probably still fit even with one in.

Re: the Eurorack manufacturer COMMANDMENTS

I disagree with almost all of these, but I wouldn't buy a module that I know not to be protected against accidental patching of power and outputs to outputs etc. Even though I am careful, it is pretty easy to make mistakes (not so much connecting modules, but when patching or doing things with stac...

Re: MUM M8 weird noise bleeding

Okay I've read a bit of that now.. Looks like other folk have had the same issue with Noise Tools 1u. But it looks like the 4ms power row might be an issue. When I get home later today I'll try plugging in the Noise Tools 1u and the possibly the Line Output into the main bus board see if this helps....

Re: MUM M8 weird noise bleeding

Okay. Looks like I'm hearing interference even without the M8. If I crank the volume I can still hear the noise tools clock. It's just a hiss though rather than a squeel. Going to try repositioning the unit otherwise I'll get in touch with intellijel as it seems to be a problem with the case. Might ...

Re: MUM M8 weird noise bleeding

there is inherent noise, Its a property of the design of the filter Because of the filters architecture, too low a cut off frequency will introduce high pitched noise into the audio signal (from the filters controlling clock signal). Thanks but the noise is when the filter is very open. As I said. ...

I've heard other folk having this issue before. Is there any way to stop this happening? I think it's down to the PSU (intellijel performance 7u case).

They make a slight scraping sound and are more stiff in one direction. Still I'm being anal. Thanks for reporting M8. They're kinda slap bang in the middle sturyd...

Re: Finally finished my 7u drum rack.

Nice, how are you liking that sinulator?

Quite easy to get nice tones and they don't sound too glassy as some fm does imo. Tis nic...
