during system warmup, I tried to record something unsual without any inputs on cv/gate.
OTO effects and RML adds some colours, psychedelic notes and space.
Beautiful ambiance johny_gtr - very space

one of the most revered oscs in 5U is the Synth Tech/MOTM 300. That's now available in Euro with expanded features,

They will be having a limited live theatre audience so it seems they will also be offering all performances through live stream.

Re:

The ASR captures a single note at each clock pulse, and simultaneously passes the previously captured note to the next stage. It can only capture/pass a single note per clock beat which is why a round like “Row row row your boat” won’t work. There was this visual explanation from earlier in the thre...

Re: Oscilloscope for 5U and MOTM

Thank you for all the replies. I am very interested in seeing what J3RK and dslocum (and Faustgeist?) are working on! I am definitely interested in purchasing such a module if it comes out (in MOTM format ideally but I can figure around it if not).

Oscilloscope for 5U and MOTM

Hi everyone, My bench-top oscilloscope broke down and before I find or build a new one I was curious to see what others are doing in 5U to visualize their waves. I am tempted to free up some space on my table by getting a handheld, although part of me is also tempted to find an oscilloscope module l...

Shameless plug: My book on modular synthesis (follow links in my sig) has 10 pages on modulation, mostly FM.
I’m reading Pelsea’s book right now - it is very well written, concise manual. Well done! And the section on FM is very clear.

Welcome to the forum! Classic MOTM kits have very clear and easy-to-follow build directions - although the format is less popular. https://synthtech.com/motm/ Basically anything through-hole. I suggest a cheap meter to test resistors and such, it will make your life much easier. This sounds like goo...

Re: Alternate word for "Threshold" on panel?

I like “edge” suggested above - it kind of close to the
meaning of threshold.

A typical way of shortening words while retaining comprehension is to remove the vowels:
threshold could be shortened to thrshld.

Re: How could design help you with your modular syntesizers ?

I’d like to see some “design thinking” give to patch cables: when looking at a spaghetti of cables it can be hard to identify what goes where. There are only a limited number of colours. Also Banana cables are so brilliant as a way to extend patching easily. Could the same banana concept be applied ...

I replaced Vactrol D1. I am not sure how to evaluate if the old vactrol was good or bad,
Put it back in. Or in another circuit.
Yes of course :doh: I set up the old vactrol on a breadboard in a simple circuit with a resistor and it is working fine. I could measure resistance on both LDRs.

So here is the outcome. I replaced Vactrol D1. I am not sure how to evaluate if the old vactrol was good or bad, but the LDR side was showing infinite resistance on both sides . Still no audio on Freq 1. :hmm: I checked R54 again, all looked good. I checked R53 & Q7, all looked good. I checked R52 &...

Re: Tuning aid for a VCO

What about quantizers? O_c has a quantizer in one of the modes. I never understood how it could tune the VCO since it is in ahead of it in the signal chain though. I've used the ES-8 with ableton and the cv tools which works great, but I don't always want to be connected to the computer. Its a more...

Re: Priority Modules

The Maths can be used as a CV mixer if needed. Summing and mixing are two ways of saying the same thing.

A dedicated filter module could have more applications than a standalone mixer.

Your kit looks like a nice economical use of space.
