Re: DIY - 4ms - Spherical Wavetable Navigator ( SWN )

i've never solder so small components. I dont have the tools. Do you think it's a good idea for a newbe ? Where could i find the list of the components ? No - if you think 0603 is small, then I’d suggest dont try this board! It’s very much not a board to learn on! Very expensive, easily damaged par...

Re: anyone using MainStage with their modular?

Yes !!! I only use autosampler but I use it to create Kontakt instruments for polyphonic synths and to “archive” fun patches. I really like the round robin functionality. It’s a really quick way to grab a load of samples - I find I do need to edit them afterwards but it’s still a quick way to build ...

They have never contacted him about using the design, and undermined the license agreement with Epoch Modular by outpricing the Epoch version. That’s not good at all.... very ...

Re: Where are the Benjolins?

Juggler is the best one available in eurorack. The epoch one and the old diy one both were very sensitive to power supplies, simply didn’t work on some power supplies. The filter outputs were quit. The juggler addresses both of these issues. Has the FM normalizations of the epoch one. It’s availabl...
