What type of mic would be best to use directly with this unit (condenser, dynamic, etc)? Also any tips for recording of vocals through the vocoder besides normal vocal recording techniques (which I need to learn because I’ve never recorded vocals in my home studio before as I can’t sing, which is wh...

Thanks these kits seem promising. If you don’t think you need a locking connector, and the spacing is standard .1” pitch, you could just use DuPont connectors. You can buy kits of them on amazon quite cheaply, although the crimp tool to use with them is about $15-20. I use these connectors on tons o...

I totally agree with you and am honestly on the fence. I need a SIL 20-pin header and receptacle. The choices on Mouser are overwhelming and I’m nervous about getting the wrong parts. Any help there would be great. Honestly, I would replace the cable and preferably install a header—that the cable al...

This is great but I need to strip to expose the bare wire conductors to solder directly to the board in this case - no header or receptacle.

Stripping ribbon cable?

I’m repairing a piece of my rack gear and in the process, from moving the panel daughter board around a little too much, a ribbon cable snapped off at the board. I thought of adding a header here instead but room is tight and I’d rather keep this piece “original”. It’s a 20-pin flat ribbon. Links to...

Patch for this sound?

I’m wondering exactly how to patch that classic Hawkwind VCS3 sound like in the beginning of Space Is Deep on my modular. Is it just the VCF self-oscillating, no other VCO, with the frequency being changed by hand and an LFO lightly modulating the frequency cutoff of the VCF? Triangle wave on LFO? [...

No problem, thanks for the reply! And it's an MOTM system. It might sound obvious, but have you tried double checking all your power connectors ? It might help also if you let us know what system you're using - if it's MOTM double check you've not let one of the power cables slip one notch on its he...

Ok, I think I fixed it. I'd moved a few modules around when I added the new one and I think one of my brackets must have been touching something near the power supply or bus. Seems sorted now! :party:

Problem with my modular

So I added a module to my cabinet and something strange has started happening with my modular. Everything powers up fine, LEDs on my LFOs blink as they should, etc.. but now any time I connect a cable from any of my modules to an external system (e.g. mixer, amp) the LEDs all go solidly lit and I ge...

Trigger sequence on a synth with a foot controller?

I'd like to be able to stop and start a sequence via MIDI on a synth - maybe a Volca or even being able to stop and start the transport on an Arturia Keystep controlling the synth. I have a Behringer FCB1010 but it doesn't send stop/start messages, which it seems is what I need. Maybe there is anoth...

Just wanted to say thank you for this post. Your post inspired and helped me to build 2 portable 12U cabinets. I'm no carpenter and used a circular saw, so there were enough slight imperfections that I decided to cover them with tolex. Having never made or tolexed a cabinet before I have to say they...

Thanks for the replies. The PSU checking is a good idea and I'll check that out. I'm wondering if it's because the temperature here has been a little erratic, pretty warm in the day and cooling at night. My studio, while climate controlled, isn't very well insulated (it's a re-purposed detached gara...

Drift on Haible Living VCOs

I built a 5U version of the Living VCOs circuit many years ago when JH first started selling the boards. I had never noticed this before but I am getting what I guess I'd call drift in the 3 oscillators. I remember this circuit being pretty stable, but now when I tune all 3 together with no detune o...

Mine distorts even with humbuckers from my guitar. Need to try the 18V and adjust the trim pot. ^Yes, just figured this out earlier. That definitely helped being able to pull that back.

Has anyone else done this? Not sure if there's a voltage converter inside that would make this ok or if there are any chips that might fry at > 9VDC.

Thanks.

I did mine this weekend. I really wanted to try to preserve everything so I could revert it back to its original state if I ever wanted or needed to. So I desoldered the CPU chip. It wasn't for the faint of heart. It took quite a while and what finally worked was using a desoldering pump and an IC r...
