The audio interface is basically a hi-z input that will accept your guitar or pedal signal, however you can also use a di (which I would run the guitar into before the serge anyway) to convert from hi z to low z and boost the signal to line level with a preamp. - This might provide a more cost effec...

I just placed an order for a Mackie 1642 VLZ 4. It has both inserts and direct outputs on the first 8 channels. Featurewise this seemed like both the most flexible and best in class product. I also have a Studer 962 where the insert points can be converted into direct outs while maintaining an inser...

When using patchbays you can run into some critical (and expensive) problems. Keep balanced and unbalanced paths separate - Turn your unbalanced signals into balanced with preamps or DIs before they enter the patchbay system. Same goes the other way. [Think like this: Unbalanced signal = not in patc...

I sent my 225e to BEMI recently and it was back the week after. Easy, quick and painless. I bought a Silabs debugger and borrowed a PC just this weekend, and in two hours my whole system (17 modules) was running v30. The USB firmware card is also necessary. For me it was of course a bit annoying to ...

Great thread! I had a lot of eurorack before I decided to go entirely Buchla, eventually a small serge system joined it and the two compliment each other extremely well. Now I am actually considering a small eurosystem again, simply because a lot of the stuff I wanted back then, but wasn't invented ...

Here is another idea: Gate out from 222e / 223e (In sustain mode) TO 281e (Also in sustain mode) = The gate from the 222e will hold the envelope after the attack, and the next time you press it, it will "fall" with the decay. I inputted this to my 256e and used the Location of another 222e touch pla...

Have you tried using a DI box to break the ground transferred via the audio outputs of each system before it reaches your mixer? You will definitely need DI's no matter what.
