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

I say we close down this thread Sandy. Nothing good to see here and tbh it is brining out the worst in people.

Re: Upgrading a KArp Odyssey; what are known mods?

I'm interested if anyone knows of being able to add an LFO out and ADSR out mod for the Karp Odyssey?

I have also been interested in this. Particularly keen to hear if anyone has modded the Karp Odyssey to have both the envelopes available as jacks so for example one could patch the ADSR out from the Karp into the ARP2600 .

Now that my new power supply is built. I am currently building a new housing for the MME. Having seen the sleak 60hp Moog case I got side tracked a bit and was hovering between getting one or making something similar. Then I started thinking about what extras I could add to a case. Lfo or Attenuator...

I had issues with the tuning and Keystep possibly related to the keystep settings as by default the keystep was playing several octaves higher than desired. So I switched cv interface to a Dark Link and that did the job nicely. I dont have the keystep anymore but perhaps Arturias Midi Manager progra...

Thanks this might just do. I'll have to check if that 500mA is not too much for my needs first though.

Quest for power

I'm looking for a power supply that will be housed in a 60hp case. It cannot have a faceplate as there is no room for such luxury. Needs to put out at least 300mA. Any good suggestions anyone?

I built two MMEs. On one, the noise is very quiet, even with the trimmer maxed out. Sometimes it gets louder but it mostly stays quiet. On the other MME the noise is great. I think it comes down to the specific noise transistor. . This could be a good idea as I remember from the TTSH project a simi...

I tried the Mod cv suggestion and then using the glide switch caused the same behaviour as in the pitch became random.

Thanks for getting back to me Julien, The mme was running initially from a doepfer psu when I first noticed the issue running inside its own case so I moved the mme into my main Eurorack case with a different psu again made by Doepfer. So I think we can rule out the psu as the behaviour was duplicat...

Edit: problem not solved. Moved the MME into my large Eurorack so plenty of air space around it now. All good for the first hour. But after 2 hours the problem is back. Tuning is all over the place and changes if I move a switch or turn a knob. Any ideas anyone?

Jumping octaves and generally misbehaving on all 3 oscillators. Before I open her up can anyone kindly point me in the right direction as to probable cause...

You could use the front of the case for a DIY ribbon controller and/or some extra sockets for the individual oscillator outputs. But maybe doesn't look at nice at it is now. Nice idea, maybe something for the future. Well once again impatience got the better of me and I calibrated the oscillators s...

That's a nice case. Great work! Do you have the power supply in the front of the case? Or how do you power it? Thanks, the case was a fun to make. I really wanted to have the MME stand alone hence the case. The power supply is in the front or rather it will be once I have properly secured it in pla...

I'm not finished yet as the switch from Tayda is yet to arrive. But in the meantime I manged to finish off the case. So I needed to test out how the MME fitted. Really can't wait to fit the switch and calibrate.Image

Well curiosity got the better of me and despite the lack of an oscillator selector switch for osc 2. I powered up the synth tonight. :hihi: it works and with a relatively short warm up period I tested all on board functions except the in/out plugs on the jack board. Really happy with that.

The original switch I managed to total when removing this from the pcb. Desouldering selector switches is absolutely not recomended. I'm concerned I may have dam...

I managed to solder a rotary switch in the the wrong position. So dutifully I de-soldered it which was a right royal pain in the posterior, pulling a pad on the pcb in the process. The next day I took a look at my half arsed solder surgery only to discover I had in fact originally soldered in the sw...
