Re: Module dead - WMD Chimera. Help?

Well, that is the cost of selling modules but, I have sold 5 or 6 modules that "did not work" until the buyer plugged it in correctly or used it correctly. One module, pressure points needed a few jumpers. Another had a bad power cable. Another just needed to be used correctly, and none of these had...

Re: Great Examples of Modulating Your Modulation

VCAs can be used on feedback, like for instance with Rings, feed back one of the output signals to the input through a VCA and control the VCA with an envelope. Or, feed an LFO through a VCA into one of the frequency CVs on a VCO or Filter and control that VCA with an envelope. Hmm, can we use a VCA...

Re: DivKid Mutes

If you are just choosing voices there is also the Malekko Mute 4 which sums its output into one signal.
My favorite thing about the mute 4 is it is only 3 HP.

Agreed. I've sold 40 modules in two years and shuffled things a lot more frequently than every few months and just consider it to be part of the process of learning and fulfilling my vision. I've gotten plenty of enjoyment out of my system in those two years. I've now slowed down dramatically becau...

Re: Did anyone start big and no regrets?

I started about 45 years ago with an ever expanding PAIA. (1973)
No regrets then.
Got back into it somewhere in 2014 with Eurorack.
Within a year I had spent over 30K.
It is only the amount of money that I regret.

Re: My 7U case; help me find the right 1U modules!

VCAs in 1U are a great way to go.
Intellijel format has an 8 hp Dual VCA that is a great use of space.
Of course VCAs are probably easy to DIY.

Every time I try to use the gate buss, all kinds of modules start doing things I didn't expect.
I can't believe how many different modules are in some way connected to the gate or CV busses.

Re: How important is having a Pamela's New Workout in your system and are there alternatives?

Seems like there are a lot of clock source alternatives. Just look at the “clock generator” category on modulargrid. It just feels like Pam’s is the best overall. Personally, having a clock source is pretty critical, but it depends on what kind of rack one is building. Don't forget to also look at ...

Re: Individual module....dedicated power switch ?

If anyone makes a power switch module, just make sure that both the plus and minus 12 are on or off at the same time. Both rails need to be switched by a single multi pole switch. Some modules have components, specifically the cool audio V2164 chip among others that will burn out if you have minus 1...

Seeming long ago is possibly the reason people want the new, the bright and shiny. I must be a luddite for having things like Quantimator, Trigger Riot...

In watching the demo, it seems to me the control scheme is great.

Re: How much load can a buffered mult handle?

Ideally you should only use one multiple output per destination. Not because of current rating, but to keep the destinations isolated from one another. Current wise, I would say typically several destinations could be served by a typical buffered mult without pulling too much current. But, the addin...

For me the most important thing to be analog, is the controls.
