Re: Dreadbox Medusa monosynth

Being an FM junkie, I've been having some fun playing with FM on this. Of course exponential FM on the oscillators can't be dynamic unless you want the tuning to go all over the place (though I suppose with REALLY meticulously set pitch envelopes one could compensate...) but filter FM can be. Except...

Re: NE Desmodus Versio versus Make Noise Mimeophon

For me Mimeophon hits all the highlights. Does all the normal delay stuff and all the tricks. Isn't prone to blowing up when you crank up the feedback, has some character, takes modulation really well (even at audio rates), does pitch-shifting modulation (for chorus/flanging) but handles unusual clo...

Natural Gate is pretty lush, but SWN has a lot of sass too. I think I probably have to give it to Lubadh though.

Re: Dreadbox Medusa monosynth

Mine (special edition, used) arrived today and I've been getting to know it. I don't know if the presets that were on it were the factory ones or some of the previous owner's saved stuff, but I was really wishing for an Init preset to start with. Kind of like the Intellijel Shapeshifter, it helps en...

I seem to recall Scott saying Kermit was a Mk II module in spirit if not in name, thus the new one is "Mk III."

Re: Question for Harvestman Kermit Mk II owners

It's normal. The "bleed" I think is deliberate with some waves -- it seems like part of the cycle is replaced either by noise or by something generated by the opposite oscillator.

Re: How to Create "Clean" WaveEdit Wavetables for E352?

Those sorts of clicks tend to be caused by the waves not lining up like they need to. E352 expects 256 samples per wave, 64 waves per bank. Serum format is 2048 samples per wave, but doesn't specify how many waves per bank -- which makes it awkward to convert. Serum relies very heavily on interpolat...

Thanks, Starthief. I've had an 008 for months and it still confuses me as well.

I guess the AI008 layout is just universally confusing :) I'm hoping the color associations make ...

Can you pls describe how this ultra low thru-zero LFO would be patched as a sine shaper? Would that be as a modulator for an audio rate sine wave (carrier)?

Could you elaborate, why it doesnt make any difference with sines? Or is this derailing the thread too much and I should open a new topic? My calculus is weak at best, but frequency is "phase change over time." It's the same principle as how modulating a delay can create pitch shifts, but specifica...

Re: Best FM module?

I was using the internal 2-op FM mode with very simply wave shapes(triangle, sin, etc) and switching back and forth between a similar patch on the SS. Honestly, I found the SS dirty in comparison. Almost as if it was running at a lower bit resolution - which i don't think is the case. Huh, I don't ...

I prefer to start my process with a drone or a *slow* sequence, and use that to build from.

Has anyone played around with fm on the e-352? I did a head to head comparison against my shapeshifter one afternoon and was very surprised by just how lo-fi it made the SS sound. Yes, E352/E370 have a few different FM possibilities: both exponential and linear TZFM, an internal 2-op FM mode, and p...

Re: "0 Hertz mode" / E352, E370 / patching with it, etc.

For phase distortion, you'd want to take a rising sawtooth wave (the phase accumulator) and "bend" it at some point along its length to create different slopes. Then you'd do your wavetable lookup with that. Curtis Roads' The Computer Music Tutorial has a great section about it, but for a short vers...
