Re: Buchla Serge mixing

wouldnt a MArF play better with a serge set⬆️? the 1V switches seem a lot more useful in a 1V/oct synth than a 1.2V/oct synth to me , never quite figured out the idea there

Re: Patch trick: turn your Maths into a complex formant oscillator like Mangrove

maybe i'm thinking of something else, but isn't this taking advantage of the maths division functionality at audio rate? like in this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L10PjCdSJqA i think the idea here is to clock maths at rates approximately in time with the envelopes its making, rather than ...

Re: Matrix mixer use and abuse

simple cv routing , shines on drones where minor changes to tuning can be made to multiple oscillators with side by side knobs, or to send kbd cv & mix modulations in different amounts crazy cv routing, feeding a channel back in directly & feeding another thru a wavefolder or filter audio routing, o...

Re: KORG miniKORG 700FS

There is a specific button that says "Panel"; to me that indicates that the panel controls only work in that mode. When writing the current settings to a preset the control values are scanned exactly once. I had a Yamaha CS-15D (still miss it :cry: ) and that had a number of presets for each of the...

Re: Thoughts on my rack

logic modules can waste space in a small to medium rack; mixers , vcas, & atten/offsets can perform OR, AND & NOT operations, and also do their regular jobs. so a couple quadratts & vcas might take out the whole flock with only a handful of stones :miley:

Re: using a inverter,scale,offset utility to transform a s trigger to a v trigger

idk if logical inversion would work but it seems like it should. the right channel of maths gives the logical inverse of a gate signal if you dial it as fast as it goes & take the EOC out theres quite a few other modules that will do this in a less fiddly way than an inverting & offsetting mixer, bu...

relaxation core just means that the oscillator core works off charging and discharging a capacitor, so triangle core & saw core both meet the criteria. sine wave oscillators & square wave oscillators dont, hth

if you e got a voltage controlled envelope you could just heavily modulate the attack time. sending 10V to rise on maths will slow it ⬇️ to a craaaaaawl , i find it sufficient when i need an AHAD envelope
