Re: Good stereo reverb

Was kind of in the same boat as I used to have a Space, it sounded nice but rather complicated for me. My guitar board has an Ocean's 11 which like set-it-and-forget-it so I just wanted to go with another 'simple' pedal for my synths. I recently picked up a Neunaber Immerse MkII and I am very please...

Re: Kits

Ordering and figuring out which parts I need is the least fun part of DIY, in my view. However, Tony's boards use a lot of the same components, so if you end up getting more than one board from him you'll see you can save money and time by ordering parts in volume. Also, some components like capacit...

I'm not personally having issues with my TM3030 man that is amazing support. Thank you for your time and effort in updating this!

Re: CS80 style mod-matrix controller for Novation Peak

Very cool idea. Would also be interested in the arduino code since I could never find a real working example of 5-pin midi (plenty for USB). I assume that's how you have it connected, the first video looks like the USB cable is not connected to the peak. Also I never had much luck printing small tex...

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

Latest update - I did replace the pot, at first it was fixed (and I posted my excitement here) but then quickly turned to crap. It would cut in and out depending on how hard I cranked the resonance pot, and to me that signaled there was something making momentary on/off contact somewhere. I had some...

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

Quick update on this - I did just replace the resonance pot and it seemed to make a difference. Sounds even better now! Thanks for the suggestion Tony and Paradigm :sb:

Tomorrow I'm getting a TD-3 so I'm looking forward to comparing them regardless.

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

Interesting, I didn't think the pots wear out so much. From using it so much? Or the dual gang nature you think just more prone to defects?

I don't have a spare pot for this one, but I'll be sure to grab an extra (or two) next time I send Mouser some money.

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

I did measure it in place. I figured it wouldn't have been that simple, that would have been too easy. I'm planning on picking up one of the new TD-3's anyway since I want to try having a double 303 sound so I'll just relegate this to the more bass-heavy parts since the squeal is mostly gone when yo...

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

Actually question on the Freq pot - I notice when I measure the two outer pins I only get 25K, whereas on the resonance I measure 50K. I replaced the Freq pot thinking maybe something was off with it but the new one is measuring 25K also. Is that by design? I know there's CC control over the freq po...

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

Maybe it was just the added volume with the accent bringing out the resonance more. I'll see if I can make a recording at some point.

Thank you for the assistance on this. Sadly, no luck. Getting 5.3V. I replaced Q26 and Q29 with new 550s and same as before. I did mess with the modwheel with my keystep hooked up and that is behaving as expected. A cool feature that I never really used much, will have to explore it further on the s...

Re: TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

No luck. I tried pressing everywhere and wiggling all the components. I don't hear any difference or see any loose connections. It's like it's missing the classic squeal and I only hear it a little on accent notes. It used to be very pronounced. Could it be component failure somewhere? I usually dri...

TM3030 issue - sound cuts out after a bit

This one is a weird one since if I didn't know this TM3030 better I might think it's fine - I recently finished a midiphy seqv4+ and the first synth I hooked up was the TM3030. It was banging at first. Then, tonight the sound cuts out - not really cut out but sounds like the resonance is cut in half...

Re: Incoming Project: Output and Multiple for 5U

Thanks Tony for the info. I guess I was a bit late to the MOTM party but I do like the format/spacing. I started a few eurorack modules awhile back and I still can't believe how tiny these are in person. We're a bit spoiled I guess.

Re: Incoming Project: Output and Multiple for 5U

Happy holiday season, everyone. Tony - question on the multiples/output module - I've been using the classic VCA as my output->mixer (a soundcraft FX16ii), but that is an unbalanced connection if I'm not mistaken. Would a use case be classic vca-->new output module-->mixer? Does the module just atte...

My standalone TM3030 is pretty quiet, so I agree it's probably par for the course. I run it through a Metal End distortion pedal which increases the output substantially and really makes it scream. I'm not sure I'd build another though because I was hitting analysis paralysis with deciding what part...

Perhaps they are just going for quality over quantity (8 voice limit) for hydrasynth because it sounds incredible.

I had an SH-01 at one point, that had 64-note polyphony and I thought it sounded terrible. I can't believe they are still selling them for over $600 new. :hihi:
