In your experience, would Braille replacement panels help or are even the more ergonomic Eurorack panels too small for this?
I imagine it'd be tough to fit braille labeling on most modules unless they have a lot of space between jacks and knobs. Still, might be doable in some case.

Re: Modular for the visually impaired

Thinking about the way my wife, who is blind, has set up our appliances and electronics... here's a few suggestions: There's a company, Grayscale ( https://grayscale.info/ ), that makes replacement panels for many Euro modules. If there are modules you want that have panels that are hard to read (Ma...

Re: What do you do with a complex envelope generator?

In Euro Land the Rossum Control Forge comes to mind.

Pulplogic format here.

There's only a few things i've wanted that I can't find in 1u: a linear response VCA is one. Be nice to have some more LFO options as well.

And there's a few 'dual' modules in 3U that i'd have a hard time justifying; Mutable's Branches, for example.

Just want to give kudos to the Joranalogue guys... had a minor issue with my Filter8 (apparently some of the early models had an issue with the linear FM input). Contacted them and they immediately paid for shipping back to them, fixed it, and sent it back within days.

Great filter; great company.

Haven't tried the Tš-L, but I have the Dixie II (6 hp version) and a VCOb. Personally I like the sound of the VCOb more than the Dixie. The VCOb has a nice fat tone... a little less harsh than the Dixie. And the VCOb sounds great under linear FM. The VCOb isn't a very 'clean' oscillator though - doe...

Had the Pittsburg LPG and can confirm it's pretty snappy. Too snappy for me, in fact, so I got rid of it. Good module if you're into that sort of thing but I found I prefer patching up my own so that I have more control over the envelope. Still, nice to have a vactrol around for general use. SSF URA...

velocity CV for a single stage?

Have read the manual and this thread, and I *think* I know the answer, but want to confirm: is it correct that there's no way to take a CV from the CV1 or CV2 input and apply it to a single stage's time or level? My first thought - creating a simple AR envelope - was that i'd take a velocity CV and ...

Been emailing him quite a bit - buying a power supply. He's been super responsive. I first reached out via the support form on his website: http://hinton-instruments.co.uk/contact/index.htm . He replied very quickly.

Hmmm... I believe you have to consider all three values combined: +12V, -12V, and +5V, and not just the +12V. So unfortunately I think that means you'll need to get the 3000mA wall wart to get the power you need.

But then again, i'm no electrical engineer. Be sure to get a second opinion.

The major thing you're missing is a VCA. Vital. Intellijel uVCA II is a nice choice in 6hp. Not sure what you could change to fit that in, but you'll definitely be hurting without it. You might be able to find a different (smaller) clock source to clock the Renee?

Hope that helps.
