Re: stillson mk3

I missed this thread, but wandered over to this side of the forum to see if anything was new. I had heard about this in passing before. The shot of the screen that shows you a level for each step is what I really found missing from the mk II. Dang. He's killing it with the mk III line.

Re: Verbos - customer support

The dedicated Verbos thread has a lot of love for the modules abs not as many complaints. It would seem ordering from them is a crap shoot. You might get a good module or you might get a dud. And if you get a dud it might be hard to get it serviced.

Re: Case Dilemmas

I would try to consolidate a bit. There's a fine line. But the issue I would have with this (other than potential grounding issues between cases which for the most part I have not experienced) is that there's too many rows that are facing up, which places the vertically oriented case way too deep (o...

Re: Verbos - customer support

Another alternative to the HO is the Dreadbox Antiphon. Far from a direct replacement. But I may just have to be happy with having it instead of the HO. It would be great if it had a VCA per oscillator built in but I suspect that might change the price point.

Re: Verbos - customer support

Damn every time I see this thread it's such a bummer. The only module of theirs I've had is the Harmonic Oscillator and I really miss it. Now I've gotten into Buchla, and it looks like he's still making his 4U one as well. But it's like 3 times the cost of the euro version and combined with the pote...

Re: 500 Series: Compressors and EQ’s for Electronic Music Production

I guess while we're discussing this it might be worth commenting on the most bang for the buck cases. Or chassis? Is that what they're called? I went with the Lindell 510 Power MK II. Seemed to be a reasonable investment but maybe folks here know better.

Re: 500 Series: Compressors and EQ’s for Electronic Music Production

I started a 500 series system before the world ended, but then I got sidetracked with building a bunch of modules to get me through the armageddon. Ha, so basically, I only have a pair of JLM LA500s. But to me, they sound very good. Ha I try them on everything.... because they're all I have. Ha but ...

Re: Rossum Electro-Music Assimil8or

Ableton is not great for prepping these samples. Check out Audacity. It’s free. Works for Mac and PC I believe. For basic sample prep work it’s pretty good. Reaper is also excellent; $60ish, free demo, extremely good for rendering large groups of samples and such (also features batch processing. ca...

Re: Power and cases

That’s not a good way to distribute power. Also you don’t want to max out your power supply. Obviously you’re nowhere near that, and theoretically you could power a skiff off the main case’s power. But to do it in a more reasonable fashio would involve making some sort of inlet on either case and m...

Re: FIVE12 Eurorack Vector Sequencer

The Vector and Metron are an amazing combo. Right now I have them in separate cases but they do very well in the same case. The Metron took a little while to grow on me but I think once you get the hang of it, you love it. It’s a different work flow compared to the vector, more linear. They complime...
