Re: Mimetic Sequent

After reading your comments, I'm considering buying it instead of the 2HP TM. The idea here is to get a Beat(and Measure if needed) from the Qubit Pulsar, a CV in from a bassline (Mother 32, with an offset). If I understood well, it should be able to add variations to the bass line, which, passed t...

Re: Sample and Hold sag / pitch droop.

So I've had an intellijel 1u noise tools in my case for a while now, and up until now I only really used the white noise output occasionally into a filter and vca. Tonight I had a play around with the sample and hold circuit. I found that the pitch doesn't seem to be "held" properly. I did a bit of...

Re: New poly synth/synth company - ASM Hydrasynth

As already mentioned, unfortunately the Mod1 and Mod2 CV inputs do not support 1v/o tracking... I was dreaming of the ability to send a CV sequence to the HydraSynth while in Chord mode (I know it's on the keyboard version only)... so the root of the chord would be the incoming CV (i.e. the incomin...

Re: ADDAC701.REV2 VCO

No qualms, I really like mine. Octave switching, good mix of waveforms, tracks really well. It's my 'basic' module in the case, sitting next to a Verbos HO and a SSF ZPO so it usually plays the role of the modulator. But I could imagine having a few of these in a small case as a main voice.

Re: WMD Metron sequencer

Popped in to say how much I’m loving it. My beats are better than ever! I’d been using a combo of algorithmic (Euclidean, Branches) and preset (Grids, Zularic) but with Metron plus Volteras and Axxent... I’m still using PNW, Grids and Zularic as well, and I’ve had a lot of fun resetting them with M...

Re: Chord oscillator for pad purposes

I have a like/dislike relationship with my Chord v2. Its convenient, offers a fourth voice, and has the mode where they share the same pitch/fine knobs but allows for separate V/Oct modulation (4 separate V/Oct inputs). So you can drive it with Harmonaig if you don't want to use the built in diatoni...

Has anybody an idea what could be my problem?
I don’t have either of these modules but whenever I have this type of issue I check gate amplitude and gate length. Maybe the sequencer is expecting a longer gate length? Manual should specify.

Re: Intellijel Springray 2?

I have a v2 and I agree the EQ and limiter make this version more controllable and better sounding. But we're talking about a mechanical thing here, not a DSP that can take a few code changes to dial in, so your environment makes as much of a difference here. I have it in the lower row of my EP-420,...

Re: Reverb module for techno kick

For kicks, I like the Saturated Reverb in the Black Hole DSP and it appears in the Pico DSP as well if you're HP-challenged. One of the parameters is a high pass filter, so I usually dial that in to leave enough but not too much low end. Keep in mind that saturation is tied to the high pass, but I d...

I'll toss one in that seems to be underrated, or at least under-discovered. ADDAC 603 Triple Bandpass. I've been using it a lot for drones. Feed it three waveforms, overdrive, distort, mix, with enough CV to keep things moving. Or feed it one audio signal and process it three ways. https://www.addac...

I can roll a Knurlie underneath the power header, if...

I'm pretty sure they chose not to do that as T-1 is intended to be your master sequencer :) Perhaps, and I wasn't inferring that they overlooked it.
