I wonder how well this would pair up with something like the HackMe Vectr, which is a 3D controller.

as long as your arms/fingers have some place to "retract" quickly, you're most likely not going to die from a really quick little *tickle* from a 120vac hit. Electricity travels at large fractions of the speed of light. If the shock is severe enough, no human reaction is going to be quick enough to...

Their existing black panel art looks fantastic to me, and I much prefer it to the boring concrete gray that is way too prevalent in Eurorack. Maybe they would sell more if they offered a gray panel version, for those for whom their existing colors would be a deal breaker. But personally, I'd much ra...

Some things to think about: 0 - Even very small currents and voltages can stop your heart if the natural resistance of your skin is somehow compromised. 1 - Your skin's resistance varies depending on how dry or wet your skin is. If you're sweating or wiggling with wet hands, your skin's resistance w...

Remixes - behind the scenes

Apologies for this being a totally newbie question, but what happens behind the scenes when a song is remixed? As a music consumer, I've often seen a situation where an album comes out, and some song on the album winds up being a club hit, and then shortly afterwards a bunch of remixes of that song ...

For some deviation from the norm, have you considered learning a classical system outside of the stock western-style?

Will learning music theory rob me of the ability to feel it?

In another thread , I also studied western music theory, acoustics and a bit of electronics when I was in college. One of my finals was to compose a counterpoint using the medieval rules regarding permissible intervals and harmony. Now this is where I may lose some folks. Somewhere along the line of...

There's an old story about a young man who cornered a world-famous violinist and begged to be allowed to play for him. If the master offered him encouragement, he would devote his life to music. But if his talent was not equal to his calling, he wanted to know ahead of time so he could avoid wasting...

While mentioned in passing by mxmxmx above, here is some more information on the Musikalisches Würfelspiel.

The article mentions an early example of 18th century games that used randomness for composition, but such use likely existed long before the 18th century.

Zaquencer has been good to me, with it's 32 steps. Makes me wonder how a lot of people get by with just an 8-step sequencer that is so common in Euroland. Main downside of Zaquencer is that it's MIDI only.

I also sequence from Linux with renoise, seq24, harmonyseq, or qmidiarp.

The 7-bit Saw looks interesting, and if anyone could post a video of how it works and sounds that would be greatly appreciated.

Also, it doesn't seem like it's available for sale separately from the Olegtron 4060 itself at this point, if I'm not mistaken.

I look at learning keyboard shortcuts like learning to touch type.

What are the smallest, most useful musical gadgets you own?

Bonus points if you use them a lot, if they do something even bigger tools can't, or if they somehow pack a ton of features in to a small package.

CV-controllable module hall of fame

We all love CV control. For many of us, it's what drew us in to modular in the first place.

Let's get a list together of the modules with the most parameters controlled by CV.

Any nominations?
