Re: R-56 reverb module

Best success on getting a 56! They do show up. Btw, the phrasing on this listing is hilariously suspicious! cosmetic condition the frontpanel has some minor scratches. knobs are covered with an undefined sticky substance "Undefined sticky substance" is my favorite Metasonix module, incidentally.

Re: Moog Matriarch Announced

I love the new skins on these, but dislike the square red buttons. Sort of makes them look like a DSI synth. I'd prefer white on 'em. Red is part of the 5U palette, but usually only for small round buttons. Still, very lovely! I remembering pining pretty solidly for the Voyager in a similar legacy 5...

Re: MIDI TYPE B TO 1/8" TRS cable, Doesn't exist??

I got a few (two, i think each) from version one of the IRig midi. Those are pretty cheap now, they're the large non-lightning adapter version. Sample listing but I'm sure you can find these for $20, cables included: https://reverb.com/item/34382262-ik-multimedia-irig-midi https://images.reverb.com/...

Re: Behringer System 55

So I like a lot of these, but the FFB is just a trinket compared to a real one. We can agree? How does it sound compared to other FFB clones? I imagine somewhere close to the Dotcom one? Does the signal attenuate? I saw KSS post the PCB on a previous page and it's about as similar to an actual 907 o...

Re: 4 or 8 Channel Mixer with Switches

Silly question - what is clipping? Man, the world we're in today! I appreciate you asking though, as asking a question gets an answer. Clipping is distortion caused by exceeding the threshhold of a signal. If you're watching a meter of audio level and it exceeds the yellow or green and begins to be...

I’m talking about something more like the latter: if you have the PPQN of the incoming clock set to 1, manually triggered gates sent to the clock input act as a tap tempo function for Pam’s internal clock. I personally use the gate button on my Planar2 for this.
Cool tip! Thanks, friend.

Re: Announcing ALM017 - Pamela's NEW Workout

The knob isn’t the only way to control Pam’s tempo. One can use voltage control or tap-tempo with an externally supplied gate. I believe we're describing the same thing. Just as you're saying, I'm describing the benefit of a using an externally supplied gate. Or maybe not - Are you meaning a footsw...

Re: Announcing ALM017 - Pamela's NEW Workout

I thought PNW was supposed to excel as a master clock? It does indeed, but an external clock is much easier to use dynamically, as Pam's only has one dial — for all its functions — so changing the BPM isn't possible when you're in a menu on something. I use an LFO for my master clock on everything ...

After a few seconds it's starting to drift, slowly catch up again, and then drift again.

Mend: Are you using an external clock for PNW? I recommend it, regardless.

Can you try a shared clock for both Ableton and PNW to follow together?
