Re: DIY Mutable Unsuccessful Builds

I have a Plancks that I think I've borked, looking for a little troubleshooting advice. Since I'm a dummy I installed the MB1S rectifier backwards and plugged in my otherwise meticulously constructed module...obviously it didn't work, and once I unplugged it and gave it a once over I realized what I...

Current draw for Dubldeca?

Just curious if anyone knows the current draw for the Dubldeca module? I'm putting together a little performance case and I want to slot this guy in there but I have a suspicion I'm going to run into some power issues...I know Teensy-based modules often suck quite a bit of current at startup, so ths...

Re: QPAS or Moon Phase?

While I'm looking at same two modules (QPAS and SSF SD) I found that you can make your own quad peak filter using Octatrack using 4 tracks and bandpass filters with modulation. Amazing what you can do with this technique and single osc (STO in my case)! That's a very cool idea- I'll have to try tha...

I've looked at both, and their character is sufficiently different to make it hard to say either or. Maybe both, depending on what you're looking for.
This is a great comparison video- thanks for that...making me consider the Moon Phase even more now :hmm:

Re: QPAS or Moon Phase?

Guessing Stereo Dipole doesn't fall under "character" (I honestly don't know I'm a newb) but against the QPAS the Dipole looks much more feature rich and to me sounds great. Great point- The SSF Stereo Dipole looks amazing as well, def more versatile than the QPAS. I think the stereo movement of th...

QPAS or Moon Phase?

Curious if anyone has played with both and can weigh in on this? Looking for a stereo "character" filter and I've narrowed my search down to these. Leaning towards the QPAS but a DIY Moon Phase would save me some $$. I've already got a few mono filters- 3 Sisters (which I would love in a stereo form...

Gods Box Loose Fruit DIY issues

So I built 2 Loose Fruit modules and neither are working properly, oddly, both in the same manner... :despair: I do not get 10 different states from either side, I only get 9. Additionally there seems to be a larger range between the states at either end of the range, meaning it takes a larger turn ...

OK, for anyone curious about this, I found that if you change the "Pulses" value in the Master MIDI_CLOCK_HANDLERS.ino file to 23 you'll get quarter notes, other values can give you some interesting divisions as well. For ex.,: void HandleClock(void){ if (playing){ pulses ++; if (pulses > 23 ){ puls...

As an update- I fixed the freezing issue by downgrading my Arduino software to version 1.8.5 (I was using 1.8.9 previously) and reprogrammed both Teensys, so that is all set. However I can't seem to get the MIDI Clock set up like I'd like. I tried changing all the "sixteenthnotes" in the both the ma...

To do this do I just need to change all the "sixteenthnotes" in the Arduino files to "quarternotes" instead? Do I ...

Well, I'm pretty sure that schematic is what you are looking for, and will work if wired as drawn. Each switch that is depicted is one pole of your 4PDT switch. The terminal 2's represented above are the commons for each pole. Terminal 1's are the normally closed, and 3 the normally open. Ah, gotch...

Help me brainstorm, I feel a simple DIY solution is possible but it's eluding me... I have a fun pedal board, and due to the fact that I like to use many of the same effects on both my modular and guitar I'd like to come up with a way to share the pedalboard for live performance.

However this also means I obviously can't check if the module is functioning in order to test whether the chip...
