Rearranging my two MOTM cases today - until now each space was filled “First come first served”. This is my first attempt to plan out the layout and I struggled to figure out what to do. I am trying to create two voices (one in each case) - Left voice is more midi/keyboard based (I have an Encore e...

Tangential question - isn't this 510 discussion kind of moot, as it's beyond unobtanium? I seem to recall that only a handful ever got made. I've got one, but I've never heard of anyone else with one. And I don't think you can get PCBs for it, and even if you could, probably not the weird chip it u...

Re: MOTM510 WaveWarper? MU wavefolders in general?

The MOTM 510 WaveWarper seems interesting on paper. Where does it fit musically? If you have one, do you consider it essential? What would you suggest instead or in addition to a 510? In the MU wavefolder mangler realm, which are the must haves? Do I consider it essential... hmmmmm... no? Don't get...

IMHO, the demise of MOTM is a function of a series of bad business decisions by Synthtech. It was an act of hubris to create an idiosyncratic 5U panel format and refuse early cooperation with synthesizers.com. A focus on the small DIY market didn't help long term prospects. Imagine a world where MO...

I had the pleasure of playing with both the rotary and linear klee and have a couple of rotary klees (in MOTM format) myself. I actually preferred the linear ones. It's just easier (for me) to mentally add the voltages when reading from left to right than it is going around the oval. Sure, when the ...

Just verified 13.6k in my early 40s, but agree that the ++LFO as an osc is a totally viable option.

Finally I have an Oakley VRG which I love but I am not seeing how that can be considered as westcoasty. Maybe I am not using it right.

I would very much like to hear suggestions for MOTM West Coast type of modules, particularly in diy. The JH Trapezoid (or, in reduced form, the Oakley VRGs). Phil at Megaohm built up some Dual Function Generators for me that are similar. The Ian Fritz modules can be quite westy and CGS modules (mos...

For a two voice system... I'd say that six EGs and six VCAs are a good start (Filter/Amplitude/Modulation per voice) if your other modules have built-in attenuators. If you're doing slowly evolving voices or voices that have triggered "events", that number will go up. If your sounds tend toward the ...

I imagine that most people who work with the Cirklon and similar sequencers also set it to run and write by ear. If you're going to start with a progression and write it out in some fashion, a software sequencer is an easier way to go about it. Twisting each sixteenth note on an encoder to the right...
