Re: Mutable Instruments Beads (Clouds 2)

Yes I had grain disappearing today too. Shaking the size or density knob seems to restore the output. Sometime it’s just difficult to work out what’s going on, since behaviour changes depending on the direction or position of the knobs. I noticed this happening when playing this evening. When switc...

Re: Mutable Instruments Beads (Clouds 2)

Received my Beads Monday but work has been slammed so haven't been able to fully engage with it. Snuck some patching this morning and am finding it's really playable and the different high quality modes are very cool. You can great pads in the Red mode with the Density / Size at audio rate and sligh...

Re: Morphagene+Beads or Arbhar+Beads?

I have morphagene and arbhar, and will have beads next week, so will report back with more details in this thread. At least one of them I plan to sell, but can’t imagine keeping both arbhar and beads which seem redundant in a smallish eurorack setup.

Re: Best Eurorack module for slowly varying smooth random voltage

Quadrax is really great for this because you can CV three different parameters of the random voltage: the overall oscillation rate, the amount of slew / jerkiness and also the volatility in terms of how often it will jump from positive to negative, versus making smaller wobbles. Sublime random. Wha...

Re: Mutable Instruments Blades

Could anyone who has both Blades and Ripples say something about how they compare in basic character? I'm aware of the obvious difference in features, but I'm wondering if Blades has a similarly nice rolandish/liquid resonance behavior as Ripples. I find that this is harder to tell from demos than ...

Re: Instruo arbhar granular processor

Yeah in a recording fully wet I didn’t notice the noise with a lot of spray going on, but I note quite a few videos with a mixed dry / wet balance without any noise. I haven’t come across the use case for that yet because I haven’t been blending with external audio at the same time

Re: Something new from Make Noise: Strega

I think there is an interesting gap in the market for mid-range semi-modular synths. There are complete systems like Tape and Microsound, ALM Coupe in the $2000 range but not many semimodulars with normalizations but several component modules under the hood. The Easel references were making me hope ...

Re: please critique my dream rack

I would get a bigger case to start to leave room for expansion

Also, move the two mimetic digitalis side by side so you can patch one and move to the next seamlessly for 8 channels

Re: Please Critique My First Rack

FWIW, I never use the internal envelope in plaits and find the button combo and shapes never really dial into what I’m looking for. I use Quadrax as the envelope for it (AD mode)

That’s not to say you couldnt get away with no envelope or vca but the extra control is nice

Yes, mine is the same I think it’s just the design. I find it similar sensitivity to tuning an osc without a fine tune knob.

Thank you both. I was quite surprised when I still had the noise in a palette case by itself. Corbetta, when you say ground lifts/transformers, do you mean a product like this?

Just curious if it was “dead silent” for anyone in t...

There is something I am not clear if it can be done within the module itself and could use some help.

If not, what would be th...
