I began "sequencing" in the 90s with Finale scoring software and general midi sound modules. I then used a Yamaha RM1x for many years. I've tried using multiple avenues for sequencing eurorack, including the RM1x with midi to cv devices, a beatstep pro, monome teletype, elektron analog keys, and fin...

I asked this a month ago:

MI Blinds would do the trick. I thought I would go that route but have decided to just use different vcas and a motovilo zsum-4.

Ok. Thanks for responding again, JanneI. I will google some more. Have you built this module? Could you just tell me how to wire the jacks or take a pic of your jack wiring for me? If you haven't built the module and you're just trying to be helpful, thanks. I do appreciate it. I have a multimeter. ...

Thanks for your response, JanneI. I'm using these jacks: https://www.taydaelectronics.com/3-5mm-mono-enclosed-socket.html Please forgive my ignorance, but I do not know which pin is which on these jacks. Neither a magnifying glass nor a google search have helped me figure it out. I have assembled qu...

Can someone be so kind as to spell out for me exactly how to wire the jacks. Or just upload a close up picture. The only pic I can find of the wiring is below from Schneiders and it isn't entirely revealing as to exactly what to do. It appears the unlabeled pad to the left of the +V pad is also used...

In my searching I saw that, DSC. I was thinking, "If only it was stereo." The manual crossfader would be so great to have in addition to cv.

Rebel Tech Mix04 4x4 VCA matrix mixer. It’s like the 4ms VCA matrix mixer without all the knobs, mute switches, etc. That would be a very useful module, thanks for pointing it out. I had to stare at it a while to figure it out but it looks like it would do the crossfading I'm after. It doesn't have...

Thanks for responding, dave999z. Quite a few larger, more expensive modules would help accomplish this, but they are large and more expensive and have functions beyond what I'm looking for.

My post here is different though similar to the panning thread. Panning of four inputs does require eight vcas, whereas my quest for a cv-able dj mixer in euro format would only require four vcas. If anyone would like to respond here to my specific issue, I would appreciate it. If not, that's ok. Qu...

VC crossfading between two stereo sources

The criteria I'm trying to meet: one module, simplest, least expensive, least hp, able to crossfade between two stereo audio sources - four ins, two outs; crossfading not scanning; like a dj mixer with cv control. I want to use eurorack control voltages to crossfade external stereo polysynths. I pla...

I think the yet to be released Doepfer modules meant for polyphony look pretty great: A-141-4 quad vcadsr; A-138-2 octal VCA; A-105-4 quad VCF - each 8hp. Put those with the currently available A-111-4 quad VCO and the yet to be released (I think) A-190-5 or a vermona qmi an you've got a midi contro...

So I have the VC version of this mixer on the way to me and had a concern related to the aux send return that I'm hoping some one can address. I'm not sure how to explain it but I'll give it a go. I just want to confirm that using the aux send on a channel does not sort of negate the panning. So you...

Mixology has solo buttons and a stereo return, the doepfer has neither.
