Re: Quad Transevent Generator Model 282e

I don’t suppose any more of these will ever be made?

Re: Easel reverb: merely reduces volume?

The reverb on my new Music Easel seems to only make the audio output more quiet; at full CW, it silences it altogether. Moreover, I can't hear any reverb effect at any point while turning the pot. Is this normal for the Easel reverb? The reverb knob is a wet/dry config. The behavior you describe is...

Likewise, it sure would be nice to have a globally-applied cv/gate i/o routing. It's occasionally nice to have these per-patch, but mostly I just want ALL my patches to at least spit out note pitch cv and gate.

Hey guys, I have a question for you. There was a little bit of chatter on the DSI forum regarding "ridiculously high CV output" from the Pro 2. In other words, one user was experiencing CV that was coming out at a very high level and required a significant negative DC offset to tame down to typical...

Both the global cv out scale and the amount in the mod matrix assignment page are adjusting the v/Oct response, not offsetting. I double checked both last night. I'd imagine some modular oscs with wide freq controls that extend substantially into LFO territory can be tuned along with the Pro2 no pro...

it doesn't mean it's true, but the manual says you can scale all the cv outs and ins. do you know if the sequencer tracks be triggered independently? like can you have one triggered by the keys, another by the gate in, another by the audio in and another free running or is it one option for all of ...

It's entirely possible I haven't yet discovered the magic trick to make it happen! If so, I rescind that remark. It wasn't doing it by default, but I will look into how to do that assignment.

Obviously that's not the demo you guys would like to see. I do have some nits to pick: Using the local keys to transpose the sequence is really fun, except it fires the voice too, which is odd. The 2600 was way, way, way higher in pitch from the note cv out than the internal oscillators of the Pro-2...

I had some more time with it over the weekend. Yes, it sounds good, and is capable of a wide range of tones. The sequencer is super easy to use. I wired it up with my 2600 and had a grand old time from the CV/Gate outs, and sending two DSI oscs out the other two CV outs (anything in the mod matrix, ...

I went over to Robotspeak in SF yesterday and picked mine up (they'll have another 5 next week). It's a travesty that I haven't had more than 20 minutes to play with it yet, but what I've seen and heard so far sounds fantastic. I'm hoping to get time to dig a lot deeper this weekend.

I've had a few weeks with mine now, and a week or so with the 101 plug-out. The default synth is more flexible than you would think, without being overwhelming. Yes, it sounds like a modern VA, and that's fine, those have their uses. I'd take the immediacy available here over menu diving in a virus ...

Just finished acquiring an all Verbos system. I've left 84hp for this bad boy.

Would be nice, also, to have a mixer and noise/random, but I assume those are coming.

I've been running 2x Osc303 +1x .com (for the sub) through AMS JP8 & FCUK SystemX filter, with 2x SystemX Envs and a NJM VCA. I'll get the rest of the FCUK lot when it's available pre-built, especially the oscs (to have the extra flexibility and higher output levels over the OSC303mkIs). But for now...

Re: How close

How close is TTSH to it's original? For instance, will the following also apply for the clone? For some of us this might almost be more than we can handle. :hihi: http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z222/minebildererdine/SDIY/ARP%202600/PowerON_zps250b2feb.png But seriously, ARP’s 2600 series...
