Re: random*source love

Hi Random Source pros, Are there any differences in quality or sound between the Random Source DYI modules and the SMD modules one can buy directly of them / modular shops? I'm considering getting an assembled DYI R*S VCFQ and a Resonant EQ from a builder - it's cheaper than buying the "proper" SMD...

Re: Behringer VCS3

Behringer is not the B from early 00s that was mark of musician's poverty. After the era of noname designers they asked to help pro guys like AMSynths, Mos-Lab engineers that understood how the synths should sound. Of course, it should be multiplied like *0.x because of cheap components to be in the...

Re: Xaoc Devices Sarajewo: Syncable Analog Delay Line SHIPPING NOW!

Hi proud Sarajewo delay owners! Can you please share your opinion/samples how close can be this modules with classic Ibanez AD series delays. In my tone palette their delays sound big and solid, kind dark (instead of their king AD230), murky trails with early diffusion - all the things that I like. ...

Re: VERBOS ELECTRONICS

For a bit more context: I'm finding the sound too flat and mushy/muddy and I'm attempting to make techno with it. unFlat -> animate parameters with EG, LFOs, EG/LFO textures (like Zadar). It can be dramatic or almost subtle. unFlat -> Verbos ATC has great drive section. If it's not enough some guys...

Re: Verbos - customer support

Re: Furtherrr Generator vs CSL

Some pluses for Furthrrr is also noise source and ring mod. I’ve had FG and found it’s good as modern analog osc’s. I don’t have CSL but on demos it sounds less raw (it’s very subjective opinion without playing on it, personal taste, etc,etc).

Re: Less gear - better focus?

It helps me not to have more than two cases of euro and MU. 2) Less gear that I don't know how to use - better focus + need less modules. great example Stages. I have it from the start of selling and don't use it mo...

Re: What VST-FX, end of chain, for the modular ?

I try to spend minimum time with DAW but some plugins are great for pre-mixing: 1) Graphic EQ like FabFilter EQ or other. It's really good for LPF/HPF for some parts. Like to remove extra low that we don't hear/feel, remove lows from tracks that don't need these frequencies. Sometimes to remove some...

It sounds good in the Ricky Tinez video, but I don't know about $900 good. Tinez looks genuinely excited, but I would be too if I got the pedal free and got paid to do a short video. On one hand it looks over the top bling-ey with the size and motorized faders, but I dig the sound, interface parame...

Still no demos with CXM 1978 and analog synths?

Hello.

I'm just curios about your feedback about CXM 1978 reverb. 9 hundred is nine hundred and can't be an impulse buy. I'm not a fan of motorized faders but maybe it's close to Lexicon 224 and true stereo? :tu:

Linear and switching power supplier comparison can be different if we compare psu’s in studio pro gear and laptop-style bricks for dozen usd each and some quality linear things that are rarely provided in eurorack. Anyway, for portability switching psu is a winner
