I think ACL could make modules that live up to the Cwejman reputation.
Perhaps, but can they scale? And would they want to?
Cwejman wasn't exactly mass production outfit either...

Re: Is this noisy enough to be considered noise, or is it something else?

I'm quite new to the world of electronic music, so I'm still trying to grasp different genres. I really like distortion and noisy stuff, so I am very pleased with this little jam. But is it noise, or is it something else genre wise? Thanks for enlightening me. :) https://youtu.be/D_3CRw-QG7I Unlike...

Re: Shepard's tone (with cv out)

ok thanks a lot for this precise answer! sounds kinda way out of my league ^^ The A-191 is a very much an academic experiment than practical module.

Hey i'm looking for a module that could generate multiple cv out to create shepard's tones with different vcos.

Re: Help Identify This Vactrol?

PerkinsElmir = Excelitas = Vactec. Same company.

Vactec era normally says "Vactec"
Perkins datasheets still picture vactrols with Vactec stamping. They bought Vactec.
Excelitas was spun off of PerkinElmer in 2010 (https://www.excelitas.com/photonics-heritage)

Re: Doepfer PSU3 v5 vs v6 difference

Just the change to the bus board:

Re: Vactrol question (what's the 3rd pin?)

the /2s are doubled up versions.... so VTL5C3/2 is TWO VTL5C3s in one form factor. The middle leg is common to both resistors. As they are typically more expensive than the single version, you may consider the cheaper alternative if you don't need them doubled up. Also the Perkins/Vactec/Excilitas s...

Re: Sorry, but I'd like to ask for thoughts about my system

Quick question: Do you really need two clock dividers on top of the PNW? That depends if you have 3 voices and you use them for sub-octave generators then yes maybe. The PNW can be 4 LFO's. That brings you back down to two clock dividers or daisy chain for one really big one. More of a personal sty...

Re: Sorry, but I'd like to ask for thoughts about my system

I see a few shortages: 1) Logic - both AND/OR/XOR/ETC type and Comparitor types. Extremely useful for making more organic music. 2) I only see a bi-directional single switch capable of routing CV/Audio. (Twigs is only routes gates and on in 1:2 direction). Think in terms of switching 4:1 not just 1:...

it's essentially a limited fixed filter bank with individual inputs / stereo out. It doesn't really add any capabilities to most larger studio setups. A small skiff / live setup likely won't have the robust controls to make full use of this module. ...unless ALL you want is a reasonably priced, uni...

Re: How would you implement this? Patch suggestions

Similar to the comparator approach use an inverted Master clock and PWM a copy of the signal for what you want delayed.

(^ = High, v = Low)
Original : ^^^^vvvv^^^^vvvv
PWDOrig: ^^^^^vvv^^^^^vvv
