They're fantastic when you have the right tools and use the correct wire. Absent those, they can suck.

Re: Adverts..

I didn't think it was hardware. Anyone who's ever sat with a real Obie knew that in the first few minutes at least. I was poking an 'inside' joke sduck's way.

Separately, I also didn't think it was a very good advertisement. Ageeing with what sduck said about it from that standpoint.

Re: Sending precise voltage to cv to midi converter

Send note voltage slightly LESS -or slightly MORE- than what you desire for ultimate output. <--Which one depends on the CV2M module and how it's internally configured. Any CV to midi has to quantize the input. Doing some sort of ADC. This means it has steps. Ideally these steps exist halfway -or at...

The real complaint should be that manufacturers often don't publish documentation for their modules.

This. 100%. This.

FWIW, it often *does* cost more to accept negative input for certain types of modules.

Note that there are several errors in the wiring shown in the minimoog service manual. Some are obvious. A few are not.

Re: Eurorack standard desperately needed!!!

The 'standard' even picked the wrong scaling standard. 1.2V/Oct is so much more friendly. Depends how you look at it. 1V=10 octaves if 10V is available*. Covers the full typical human frequency range. Same 10V at 1V2 is only 8-1/3 octaves. So you're going to lose either the highs or the lows. And w...

Re: Op amp comparators getting hot / CMOS inputs

I think it's the MFOS Potpourri module which has the 'ascending' LEDs. Might be worth having a look. Could hi frequency oscillation be a source of overheating? OPAs can be used as comparators, but they're not ideal. And you've got no hysteresis in your circuit. -------------- The PAIA EK-7 digitizer...

My argument for Horowitz and Hill is that anyone interested in audio should open Chapter 8 and build some/all of the circuits as they work through the chapter, swapping resistors and transistors types as they suggest, and by the end of the chapter you will understand noise. Other books do deal with...

Download the 2600 user manual from the Korg website -or any of many other places you can find it online- and have a read. It's one of the better classic synth manuals anyways, and it will mostly inform you on the B2600 too.
