Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

is there a video demonstrating the Rubicon 2's symmetry in "lock" while being modulated at the same time as the through zero fm in a musical context? This and the warp circuit for the sub seems to be the most prominent differentiator separating it from the competition. What happens when you modulat...

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

I am hesitant to add anything to this thread, but I'll just say this: If you want a TZFM oscillator, you can rest assured that the Rubicon 2 is a TZFM oscillator. When I design circuits, it is never to "achieve a certain sound" -- I'm not nearly good enough at electronics to know whether a certain c...

Re: Something New from Doc Sketchy

I am guessing that you treat natural minor as the same scale as the major. But how would one change the root of the scale, so that it is not always in C? Also, did you consider the pentatonic scale? Natural minor = Aeolian mode = scale from the VI degree of major, so yes. To change the key, you'd h...

I should be done with this new quantizer project very soon (but I need to mak...

Re: High-precision resistors in MFOS VCO/VCF inputs?

Answer: It's completely nonsensical, because the tracking is actually adjusted with trimmers, so you could use 1% resistors there. You probably wouldn't want to use 5% resistors, not because they aren't accurate enough, but because they drift more with temperature than metal film resistors. Then aga...

Re: Iy there a magazine only for modular synths ?

The issue of Sound-On-Sound from April 2013 was largely devoted to modular synths. I know, because it features some of my designs.

Much of the content (I believe) is reproduced here:

Also, don't forget about the Intellijel Morgasmatron -- dual multimode MS-20-inspired filters with internal crossfader, series/parallel routing options, and lots of other bells and whistles. (I designed most of it, so I'm partial to it.)

Re: Duplicating old PCBs... strategies? tips?

@ Dr S-n-E Have you actually tried that? Scan or copy is a good first step, but IME hardly as simple as you imply. If you have actual experience doing that I'd love to hear your methods. For example here's a scan of a 4012 CS drawing, and also a good flat shot of a 4019 VCA's SS. Both PCBs are 1.88...

Great and thoughtful response to my rant, Whelm . There's a lot there for me to mull over. Forget morality for the moment. Let's think about meaning. Does anything have "meaning?"

For solid core, I only use 22 gauge.

I only ever use it for "hookup" if I have to connect a pot to a jack, or...

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

Morality is completely and absolutely subjective. It is, in fact, based entirely on our own responses. Human beings (well, most of us, anyway) have an innate sense of moral empathy -- you might think of it as the conscience, but that is an oversimplification. Consider this: you get up to pee in the ...
