I'd double check on the Expanding Universe thing, unless the EML was the analog part of the GROOVE system and the computers were doing all the sequencing/controlling! This is exactly what they did; the Bell Labs Groove System was designed to digitally sequence voltage controlled instruments; I’ve r...

I always wanted to build some of the Blacet modules but just never got around to it. I'd love to see them return in some form or another, but keeping the original frac format/spacing to me seems pretty crucial. To me that is also what makes Serge what it is, Buchla, so on. Spacing, cables, fonts, co...

Reviving this two year old thread. I have some open ended questions: how are you all enjoying your Axoloti nowadays? Still regularly using it? How has the community developed over the years? Is it still active? How do you rate this in 2019 over the Organelle/other competition? I use mine quite a bi...

Check out the AAS plugins that are a part of Ableton Live. I believe Corpus is the resonator that the other modeling engines in the suite use. There is also the Resonator plugin in Ableton as well. it looks like it is now discontinued, but AAS' Tassman was basically THE software for doing physical ...

since there is a Euro plate, I assume the dimensions are different from the Brunswick? If there is more in this line can we expect it to be squeezed into 3u? don't give into the tyranny of 3u - give those fingers some room! The dimensions are indeed different - it's far wider and a bit less in the ...

very nice, really digging the combination of the simplicity of the circuits with versatility with all the patch points. this combined with the brunswick and some creative cross patching, the two offer quite a lot of possibilities for some more abstract sound design too. the bax EQ is an especially n...

hmm... from my own point of view I think I wouldn't want to have the circuits exposed if there was no need to. Just because having something sticking out when eurorack is already tight isn't so appealing, but also higher risk of damage, interference, portability, so on... if I wouldn't hot swap a mo...

I also get what sduck describes, but a bit less extreme. I have a feeling that the circuit is FAR from optimized/stable seeing as Synthrotek's business model to me seems to have been taking very common circuits almost direct from a datasheet or from guitar pedals and porting them to Eurorack when th...

I don't know that the differences would be big enough to cause such extreme feedback, but my understanding with PT2399 is that the production consistency/quality is not very good. Where did you source the chip, and do you have more than one so you could try swapping them to see if it helps?

The reasons people are using curved traces here is simply aesthetics and a belief that it will have an impact on the sound. But, given that it's all but irrelevant at audio frequencies it's worth questioning the motives, because there are so many other things that could be looked at which have a me...

Can anyone who uses Diptrace comment on the quality of the Mac version? I see it is basically a ported Windows app, so I have my suspicion it probably sucks haha. But I may be wrong. Yes, it uses Wine. It's a bit tricky sometimes, like some key combinations or two-finger clicks don't always work et...

might be worth looking at the SSSR Labs SM010, a computer controlled passive 8x16 matrix. its not switches, but I'm sure a design could be implemented using some sort of physical switch or button matrix around the same core IC.

ah yes, chromatic sample mapping would change things quite a bit. If you didn't want to go for a rack unit I believe MPC 500 could do what you are looking for. There are also other rack options than the Akai like the EMU ESI 2000 which you could probably find for $100, but if you don't want to mess ...

if you are reluctant to buy used gear (which it is sounding like you might be) I think you might have a hard time finding what you want. by your description and desired price point it sounds like late 90s early 2000s prosumer level sampler is what you are after, and that even an MPC 500 sounds like ...
