Re: Has anyone hacked Bishops Miscellay?

Is something like the Flame Quad CV Recorder what you are looking for? 11E78D3E-C3BF-462A-A1CD-78798CBDA3C1.jpeg No not that either... I'm a little confused how exactly you want it, since I'm not familiar with the keyboard you mentioned. As I understand it, there are two basic ways you can record C...

Re: Looking for a reverse Intelijel Shifty - four switchable cv/gate ins, one out

It's called a voltage-controlled switch. Doepfer make a nice small 4-to-1 switch and a small dual 2-to-1 switch. The nice thing is they can go the other way too... 1-to-4 possible outputs. edit to add: the doepfer 4-to-1 is only one channel so you would need two if you want to do both cv and gates, ...

It's pretty easy to damage a pot by over-soldering it. I've done that. Really hoped this wasn't the case, going to be a *** to desolder... Got any tips to ease the process? Or for making sure it actually is damaged? Easiest way to desolder a pot (or anything with a lot of pins that's a pain to deso...

Re: AI Synthesis PSU questions

Also, I'm not sure if pumping more amps into the PSU will damage it, can anyone speculate whether pairing this wall wart with it will be problematic? You don't really pump amps in. It's better to think of it as a circuit draws amps out. So if you hook up a 15A supply to the AI PSU, and then only ho...

Re: Compact multi channel slew limiter?

How are your DIY skills? Slew limiters are very easy to make. Just an opamp or two, a capacitor and some resistors (for most designs). If you're OK with DIY, I highly recommend you look up some schematics and try making some yourself. If you're not into DIY, Ladik and Division 6 both have duals that...

Re: what is the most INSANE 4hp module ?

The most insane thing I could think to do with a spare 4hp is put two 2hp modules with knobs right next to each other, and use them both at the same time.

Re: What are your favourite Doepfer modules ?

I really like the A-143-3 Quad LFO. It's simpler than the A-143-4, no voltage control, but it's also a lot smaller. The LFOs are basic, but there are 4 of them and they're wonderfully immediate, no need to switch modes or select a waveform, they're just all right there. Plus run them into a mixer an...

Re: A module that keeps an incoming clock after it stopped ?

It sounds like what you're looking for is called "tap tempo" and if so that Ladik module should do it. And so should the Peaks you already have. With the Peaks, go to the TAP and be in either Twin or Expert mode. Now it'll measure the time between input gates/triggers (or taps on the channel's butto...

Re: Recommend a simple sequencer I can "disturb" ala René

If you have a sequencer that has CV over which step you're on, you can accomplish this by mixing the ramp that you're using to driving it with external voltages to disturb it, and then when you remove those external voltages it'll be back in sync.

If you don't need to it be exactly like how Expert Sleepers' modules work, you could get lights with your jacks the way that Antumbra does it: reverse mounting a SMD LED across a hole below the jack.
