Re: Where to get thermal glue

Yes that is what non-bleeding means. This is thermal grease. Not thermal adhesive. Not thermal potting material. Thermal grease has the best thermal conductivity. The only way to get anything better than that would be with something that is slightly conductive and different dielectric constant. So t...

Re: What to buy first!?

Might actually check out the Dixie too now, didn't know it had that many outputs. You know anything about or tried the Make Noise STO? most people that have an STO already have a lot of other make noise modules. I like that it has sine output and the sub-oscillator but I would probably never sell m...

Re: Where to get thermal glue

are you looking for thermal compound or thermal adhesive? thermal potting material has really poor thermal conductivity. the best conductivity is a very thin application of thermal compound between two flat surfaces. do you mind telling more about what exactly you are trying to thermally couple to w...

Re: What to buy first!?

you could get a lot of really different answers. probably all good but very different perspectives. one of the things I focus on now is strictly creating sounds in eurorack that I sample into ableton. I use simpler/sampler in ableton a lot. I do love having a real spring reverb built into my custom ...

Re: Halp! Behringer Model D works as an envelope follower, but...

Yeah I hear it now. This is entirely related to the envelope follower in the model D. You can fix it with eurorack modules. All you need is a little more hysteresis or some timer that does not trigger until finished. The plankton envelope follower into the doepfer A-167 comparator with the gap contr...

Re: Halp! Behringer Model D works as an envelope follower, but...

You can get a foot pedal to trigger the ADSR. But if you don't want to do that, you can put a shit ton of super fast compression on the lyra8 audio output. I have done this before on synths that have the fastest attack not fast enough. You can also use a pedal with a lot of clean gain or just turn t...

Re: DIY'ed Ritual Crime?

There are more tricks you can do if you know the Vf of each diode. You can wire the switches in parallel with Vf ranked low to high. The lowest Vf that is engaged will be the diode clamp you hear regardless of the switch position of the blue LED. Germanium diode is the smallest Vf so it will be what...

Re: What to buy first!?

If you are going to do effects in the DAW then you probably want analog VCO's and analog filters. If you are doing instruments in the DAW then you want filters and phasers in the modular. I think marbles is great for generating random sequences but so is the DAW. Plaits is good for duplicating every...

Re: Halp! Behringer Model D works as an envelope follower, but...

You can connect a 9v battery to a button and a patch cable into the model D. All you need is a button to trigger the ADSR. This is very cheap to make.

Re: Cold minimal techno with eurorack

The right kick makes the whole track. The rest of the percussion is going through some kind of filter or phaser or reverb then into a gated compressor. The synths are also going through some reverb. Sounds like a concrete basement very small.

Use the model D keyboard as a trigger. Don't use it as an envelope follower. Problem solved.

Re: Can you hear the difference between audio interface A/D converters?

The difference from an mbox to protools HD was huge. This is probably because of the crappy clocks, crappy DI, crappy mic pres. When you go from a motu to a burl, you are not going to have a lot of difference. It depends on your speakers actually. One thing that changes is the noise and clarity at l...

How are you triggering the ADSR? You press a key on the model D? Does the lyra8 have gate output or trigger output?

Re: Sound-design tips: Spaceship engines, wind, machine-noise?

I did it in VAZ modular in the computer because the 16 LFOs and the 16 input XOR. Sometimes you have to use the computer to do this kind of sound design. It would be 4 rows of doepfer just to make this patch in eurorack.
