Re: Jove vs Frequensteiner

By "out of hand" I did not mean self-oscillation, and to that end the FS will do that at the highest position. That said, when it does self-oscillate, it does so in a fairly clean, sine-like manner whereas the Jove becomes nonlinear quicker at high res and more sensitive to gain IMHO. The Jove will ...

Re: Jove vs Frequensteiner

I haven't used the AMSynths modules, not any of them, although they promise to be accurate emulations. The only circuit-accurate emulation I have used is the VCF303 which is indeed super-accurate, having the built-in EG that is critical to the 303 sound, but I digress. The Jove is exactly what it so...

Re: Jove vs Frequensteiner

Yeah the one I would try at the shop is something complex FM like Braids WTFM or something similar into the jove, set at 24dB, the res at medium and start playing with the gain and cutoff. The gain is actually pretty important on the jove as it changes the character, like most filters. You can overd...

Re: mix outputs to DAW for recording

It's fine, it's not immensely higher, plenty of people on here do precisely that. Modular is 10v p-p, line level is around 3.5v p-p, most synths put out that kind of level, some even higher. If your interface/mixer can't handle +12db w/o trouble it's probably not worth having. "Line level" or instr...

Re: mix outputs to DAW for recording

A very good option would be the Tascam Model 16 or Model 24. These mixers are analog style but have full 16 or 24ch in/out capability to the computer. You can reroute the DAW back to the mixer with a simple knob switch on each channel strip. This creates a highly useful analog console that can recor...

Re: How does Optomix compare to the LxD for Buchla Bongo type percussive sounds?

The TW is the closest you'll get to Buchla sounds in Euro IMHO. I've had the OptoMix, QMMG, A-102-1, TW, LxD, Borg 2. The TW is a nice midway sound between the aggressiveness of the QMMG and the pure boringness of the OptoMix (I hate it because it kills high end as a VCA and never sounded that good ...

Re: How does Optomix compare to the LxD for Buchla Bongo type percussive sounds?

Owned both, kept the LxD. The LxD top side is more aggressive and plucky while the optomix is super bland and I hated it, but for some people they really like its sound. The Thomas White is another LPG you might look at, it's a a copy of a Buchla and while the vactrols aren't the exact same, they so...

Re: WMD DPLR vs TipTop Audio Echoz

Echoz isn't FV-1 nor does it sound like it. The fidelity is higher but directly controllable, generally the algorithms are pretty good. I have the DPLR and prefer the Echoz to it. I also have like 12 other delays.

Re: Need advice. Powering my new rack (Doepfer)

Nah not really re: boxed headers. If the power supply is good it should be fine. Make sure you double-check all your mains wiring and verify your bus board is +12/-12 with a multimeter just in case. The Doepfer supplies and bus boards are just fine.

Re: how different is the Mod Base 09 from ...

I have an Mbase 11 and a Modbase. They seem a little different to me, not tremendously, but slightly. I feel like the Modbase is slightly bigger-sounding, again not by a huge amount. They both really do a good electronic kick.

Re: End-of-chain Compressor/Limiter Options

MSCL. Stereo. Works great as a limiter, really helps in a performance setting, is small and easy to use. BTW, I can tell you from having two RNC's, they are not 'really nice' once I got some better gear. You can get a Symmetrix 425 for under 100 a lot of times and it's a world better than the RNC, w...

CV over algo change is massive. The Irukandji doesn't have that but it does have 1,000 rabid Nintendos inside.
For real. This was the first 'ERROR' module for me and it's amazing, if a bit noisy.

Many thanks all of you for your interesting comments. Yes, the FS is pretty damn fat! So seems to me the Jove is more clean then, more precise maybe? @ tuj, what do you mean really by crushing sound on raw waves? personally I do not have an AFG, only “basic waveform oscillators” if you will, but us...

The only thing Mike made that wasn't that cool was the Dual Cyclotron. Neat concept but huge and not ins and outs. That's the only Livewire I've sold.

Re: Jove vs Frequensteiner

Yes, they are that fat. You sweet a saw wave with the FS and you wouldn't believe how good it sounds. It's not a Moog sound, it's got a sound all it's own, and it shines in HP mode too. BP isn't really interesting to me, but the other two are very powerful. The Jove can get some crushing sounds on r...

I'm not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are other plastics that would react the same way, perhaps used on other synths. I am a huge mofx fan myself.
