Re: Bubblesound VCA4p?

I have the black version, and I'm rather happy with it. Particularly the option to switch between linear and exponential per individual VCA. Maybe not as clean as some newer VCA types, but I like the sound.

Re: Does everyone eventually have to get a Maths?

Right now, IMO the best updated version of the DUSG isn't Maths, it's the Joranalogue Contour 1. It does everything that the Maths slew-limiter channels do, and it does them better. Having two of these plus a separate logic module is going to take up more space than the Maths, but it'll also provid...

Re: Does everyone eventually have to get a Maths?

Not really, no. My personal favorite is the original version, the Serge DUSG. It doesn't have the attenuvertors or mixing, but it's a much more solid, fundamental module, and generally has a better interface. For learning modular technique, it's better to go with simpler modules and avoid the more c...

Re: Xaoc Devices Sarajewo: Syncable Analog Delay Line SHIPPING NOW!

Can someone convince me to keep the Verbos Multi Delay vs. having 2 of these? The HP savings is tempting and the sound... The Verbos is a digital delay emulating an analog delay; so not really any point to it since you can do the same thing more efficiently and cheaply in software, and it's rather ...

Re: How much spare capacity does your Eurorack PSU have

Yes, I think I will go for the VCFS and probably in the future I'll get a second VCFQ (although a second DUSG will come sooner than a second VCFQ). ;)
Also a good choice. There are few purely analog modules more flexible and powerful than a DUSG.

Re: VCA question, linear vs exponential, and gain

Something that hasn't been mentioned, but as a general rule, exponential is usually best for controlling audio volume, because that exponential curve matches how our ears respond to changes in sound volume. Linear is generally best for managing control voltage (using control voltage to control contr...

Re: Erica Pico BBD noise

It definitely needs to be paired with a Low Pass Filter, same for the Doepfer BBD delays. A very simple 2-pole version would suffice, with CV control over cutoff frequency. Split the Delay's time CV to the filter's cutoff frequency to get clock noise filtering that tracks the delay time (possibly ne...

Re: Music you sort of get but can't get get into

Gotta say, you're taking a very narrow slice here. What you described as "classic" is not actually classic, it's bebop and its derivatives (hard-bop/post-bop, avante-garde jazz, and cool jazz). Classic jazz is several decades older, originating in what we now call Dixieland jazz. Musicians like Jel...
