I can't offer you a solution that fits in shallow cases and nor can anyone else, but if you are prepared to start again use the contact form on my website and we can discuss your options. Have a look at my Gallery page too. Okay, thank you! I am not against doing so, but it will require a pretty si...

Re: More grounding hassles

Thank you for your help Graham. I've read a lot of your posts but was unsure how exactly it applied to my situation. I am happy to investigate properly grounded power distribution. Finding systems which would be suitable when you are consumer level in your knowledge (as opposed to a pro studio setup...

Re: More grounding hassles

As an update: If I connect my racks together with a patch cable, it appears that this solves the issue - presumably as it grounds them together. This doesn't really address the question of why one of the racks behaves this way while the others don't though. The OTO BAM and BIM still behave the same,...

More grounding hassles

Hello there, I've had my system for a few years now... it's split across three racks: two 9u, and one 6u. It is powered by 3x TipTop uZeus, 1x powered case with a kettle lead supply (not sure what it is), and 1x Endorphin Shuttle Control. There are flying bus ribbon cables used for almost all of it....

Re: Endorphin.es AUTOPILOT

Late to the party as usual, but I put together a demo video after picking up one of the Autopilots to explain how it works in practice (at least as far as I understand it), since I couldn't really find any decent info kicking about.

When you say Stutter and Momentary Switch the first thing that comes to mind is the IdiotBox Flash Stutter, but that's a vactrol tremolo, not a delay effect. Unless that is what you're looking for. Yeah, after a delay that will let me do a kind of 'hold' stutter effect as opposed to a tremolo - and...

Vocal Stutter Pedal?

I'm looking to get a pedal to use live which will I can use to create a stutter/fast delay-repeat effect on vocals. Ideally it would have a momentary switch so that it is engaged when held down, and stops when released - akin to the MWFX Judder. I can't seem to find anything though. Does anybody hav...

Ditto. Following to find out. I often get the 'tingle' when using multiple racks and touching various points on the cases, but haven't been able to find any good answers as to how to address that. That is a slightly different issue to the above, your brick/supply might be faulty and should be teste...

Would use something like this make a dc-powered device like uzeus safer to use? Or is it a moot point unless there can be a properly earthed power connection?

Have you messed around with the NerdSeq? You can control it with a SEGA controller which is pretty cool. Not sure why I didn't get a notification for this! I've seen NerdSeq, but haven't played with one. My eyesight is pretty crap, so I'd struggle to see the screen if it was rack mounted. :deadbana...

patch a saw LFO +/- 5v to scan through all the steps in one direction. they should be equally spaced if everything is working correctly. Will try that out tomorrow, thanks. Is there any way to consistently output the various intermediate steps though? e.g. bang on +5v, or 0v, or +2.5v, to switch be...

I am struggling with this as well. Definitely a n00b question, but I'm not sure how to generate exactly the voltages required to get the appropriate number of steps activated - without using an external keyboard. Can anybody help?

They only went back in stock last night/this morning, so many folk won't have noticed/realised. I can't see any for 800USD though. Got a link?

Pulse can not have “off” state because the input signal is rectified before being log scaled and shown. The main use for the module is to show audio rate signals, thus it has log scale and some delay for release state. Though it has a jumper on the backside to select AC/DC input coupling. So with D...

Curious how folks who got an 856 like it. I have a CT5 which is awesome, but no matter what I did with the 856 I couldn't gel with it at all. I eventually sold it on.

Nah - quoting USD to keep things in a single currency for ease of comparison, since folks further up the thread had already used that. Unfortunately!

Just got a V1 off Reverb for $125. If you don't care about the differences and don't really need/use the stereo effect, you could likely find a V1 around the same price. In the UK the cheapest price I've found for a second hand v1 is about 300USD. A new v2 costs 418USD. V2 is $390 direct from Alrig...

I am in the market for a Chronoblob - but I'm not entirely sure what the differences are between v1 and v2, and if they are worth the extra cash (I can pick up a v1 a lot cheaper).
