Re: Turning that modular loop into a proper track

Great topic. When I'm on my modular, I don't think about how I work in a DAW. Nothing linear, no A/B bridge concept. I've learned to really "play" my mixers to provide overall "structure" in terms of bringing voices in and out - whether I'm using mixer modules or sending vca outputs directly into my...

modeleus & Xomrys - amazing patch ideas. I don't fully understand it on paper, but I'll try them out. This is by far my favourite thread on MW.

Re: Audio programming for hardware

Monome stuff is also a direction you can go in. You can build a Norns Sheild for not a lot of money, and the programming language for it is dead easy from what i know. And it integrates really easily with Eurorack with a Crow module. The other part of the knowledge is electronic circuits, which soun...

Re: Loopers: Boomerang vs Infinity vs dual EHX 720

I made a couple of albums with 2 Eventide Timefactors, which I still think is one of the best looper pedals. Doesn't quite go up to 1min recording time (its buffer is much shorter - i think around 48sec at 1/4 of the recording speed). It has full MIDI implementation which I've never used, so I imagi...

Re: Westlicht PER|FORMER Sequencer (DIY)

Question - How do I send a reset out to other sequencers and determine the timing of such? Doesn't seem to exist in the manual but this has to exist right? i believe that's under the shift + clock page, or as a general project setting. haven't had mine on in a while, but there's definitely a way.

Re: Beads vs ADDAC112 vs Arbhar vs Miso

ADDAC112 is at the top of the list for me personally, although I have a Beads on the way. I love the "hands-on-ness" and the playability of the 112, and some of its more unique parameters. I'm not even that much of a granular person and don't generally love smeary ambient granular sounds, so with bo...

Re: Your 3 least popular eurorack modules?

Re: Westlicht PER|FORMER Sequencer (DIY)

Here's a demo using an EG or function generator to modulate the Westlicht's tempo, and then using one of the Note CV outputs to modulate the envelope. CV feedback patch, if you will. Not restricted to this sequencer, of course; just something I wanted to try last night.

Re: the DIY cases thread!

I got some triple-wall cardboard at work, and decided to try and make a "flat" 6U for my home setup. I have my modular on a 2-tier keyboard stand, and the lower tier is a bit short, so I need something flat. I also wanted it a bit deeper for some of my Doepfer/old/DIY modules. My boss showed me this...

Re: Alternate firmware for Tides V2?

Well, I've customized my Tides 2's behavior in audio-rate to my idiosyncratic preferences (new frequency ratios, making one output a pulse wave regardless of the others' shape, and making one output an LFO whose frequency tracks with the other outputs). This was to make it the ideal complement to a...

Can I ask Delta V owners whether the envelopes work as a clock divider a la Serge envelope/Maths/Falistri (does NOT retrigger before end of decay)?

Another advocate for the Westlicht. I've been avoiding battleship sequencers for years because I've always preferred multiple smaller sequencing tools for ultimate flexibility, but the Westlicht has a few incredible tricks that i haven't seen in any other Euro sequencer. The internal routing matrix ...
