Re: Starting a song - what's your first track?

I spend a lot of time making & releasing "structured" music, with parts that resemble verses, choruses and the rest. Melodies, harmonies, basslines and drums, all that stuff. So when I get on the modular I throw all of that out the window and go in cold. I'll patch one thing into another, maybe try ...

Re: Serge Resonant EQ versions

Oh wow, you bought the ES202? I want to see pics of two side by side- that is a whole lotta sliders I did! I love it! Here's a pic of it in its temporary case, while I build another: https://i.postimg.cc/9fTSMPFb/image.jpg And here's some gratuitous self-patched feedback action with probably too mu...

Re: Serge Resonant EQ versions

So I ended up taking a punt and getting an Elby one; for various reasons, but primarily because I prefer the slider layout, and also supporting a local(ish) manufacturer.

How's it sound? Well, a bit over 24 hours after receiving it, I ordered a second, so :sb:

Re: Serge Resonant EQ versions

Yep have noticed the input / control differences. That's not a huge issue for me as I plan on using them in with a matrix mixer for feedback & cross patching.

Re: Serge Resonant EQ versions

Thanks for the reply, Pugix.
I won't be DIYing - these days I don't have time for that anymore, unfortunately.
So to clarify, I'm interested in audio differences between pre-build versions of these.

Serge Resonant EQ versions

(Apologies in advance if this topic has been flogged, and please direct me to the relevant thread - I have searched with no definitive results) I find myself very interested in the reissues of the Serge Resonant EQ, specifically the Elby Designs and Random*Source licensed versions. Elby is relativel...

Re: How many filters do you own/use per xU

9U x 104hp, 2x Polivoks and 1x QMMG. 4x dedicated VCOs (and 4x more modules that can act as one).
Generally speaking, I'm not that into filters unless they have lots of character, by which I mean serious nonlinearities and interesting quirks.

This is a development of the previously posted patch; more texture, more modulation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0djVMNLCMZo The clicky chattering of Insatiable Insects is a looping Double Andore processing a subsonic sine wave through its glitchy VCA and then through a Polivoks VCF, while the H...

Very inspiring to see your extremely distinct rack on MG, and then hear the results. There's a solid vision behind it all. Extremely cool.
Thanks for the kind words :) There was a very clear vision to this rack, and I do feel that it helps me go where I thought it would.

Re: Sound source wisdom - or how you can predict your sound journey

I started out in modular a bit over ten years ago (well, earlier than that, but that's when I started buying my own). In the beginning I wanted something different. Specifically, I knew I wanted wavetable, because I was obsessed with my Microwave XT, So I dove in, with the v1 Piston Honda as my firs...

Modular Organisms

After a 5 year break from modular to work on other music, I rebuilt half my rack and decided to start a record of my patches, which for the most part are self-running affairs, inspired by the natural world. in particular the volcanic forest that I walk in every day. If you're interested you can find...

Re: Harvestman setups

I really like the look of the Harvestman mk1 modules with all black knobs especially when they all match on a single case. Unfortunately some of my mk1s came with either the newer orange knobs or a mix of black and orange. I like to see the visual difference between the mk1s and mk2s. Regardless, t...
