Re: Cables on a shoestring

Everything goes through those cables - consider and value them with the same thought and respect as your modules! I have a variety of cables but the majority are Doep...

Re: Nord Stage 3 and eurorack ??

Nord Stage 3 and Eurorack you say? I added a Nord Stage 3 to my eurorack studio in the summer - fabulous! No idea about your question - too busy pretending to be Herbie Hancock circa 1973.

If it's Really Deep Learning perhaps it could automatically select the correct answer to the 'What module should I get next" or "critique my rack" type questions.

Re: Doing "events" in euro-land? vs probability?

Not sure why a clock divider wouldn’t do what your counter module would do - you select the divide output that matches the count you want to achieve to trigger the next event. Most dividers have multiple outputs so the same module would give different “count outputs” which can also feed further divi...

Re: Doepfer A-180-3 Suddenly fried

I'm pretty sure I've never plugged output into the output. The only module I have damaged is an A-180-3 - it happened because I inadvertently connected it to the output of a module. I am certain of this because I accidentally did it twice.... :doh: The "sensitivity" of this modules output is due to...

Re: Is CMOS still analog? Best way to call out 'chip' logic vs uP logic?

Can you tell if the vinyl you are listening to was cut using a digital delay on the feed to the cutting head or whether a tape machine with an offset playback head was used? Genuinely interested, because according to your thesis it makes an audible difference and you can hear it. No, I can't, and n...

Re: Playability and build quality of Matrix Mixers -- 4ms Doepfer and Low Gain

The Doepfer A-138m seems well spaced but there are no mutes. The Doepfer is a nice size and layout for wiggling about in a live situation - solid construction as per all Doepfer, decent sized knobs, good feel. True it has no mutes - though that never bothered me as I tend to push the outputs throug...

Re: Magneto DRY/WET knob issue

When you reduce the dry signal you are taking out only one instance of the sound (albeit the original), when you reduce the wet signal you are removing all multiple repeats of a multiply delayed/phased wobbly affected signal (you have crinkle/wow and flutter/spring reverb and feedback on). I would e...

Re: What module takes in LFO’s and only outputs the positive voltage?

So there are 2 ways to avoid a signal going into negative territory. 1/. Make it a bit smaller and add a voltage so the most negative part of the signal is at (or above) zero volts. This retains the shape of the original signal. 2/. Rectify it so anything below zero volts is rejected - this changes ...
