Re: Stuff you recorded in the past but now have no idea what's going on in them

This is probably the best example that I have. I can't for the life of me figure out this patch:



Not the bass, melody or the drums but that synth line in the moddle of it all.

Re: Re:

Synth folk tend to be wary of canonizing makers that offer cheap goods. Eurorack is such an expensive field but within that field Doepfer is one of the least expensive offerings. Dieter will always be hailed as the originator but I think that his prices aren’t premium enough to gain him Moog status...

Re: ADDAC215 Dual S&H+

Ordered! So much functionality in such a small space. I've never had anything from Addac and then I got the 701 rev2 which is great and now I'm starting to look at the whole range.

Re: Arturia Beatstep Pro Unquantized Pitch

Yes. However, the velocity channel only has the values spread over 128 steps, so you can't do any super exact fine tuning.

As soon as I'm done with and have torn the latest patch. I would never try to add a module or rearrange while even a tiny patch like this is going on:

Re: Recovery Bad Comrade V3 Available Now!

Definitely one of those modules one might think is broken, at the first run. :hihi: Like something from Metasonix or the Synthrotek DIRT Filter, it takes a bit of searching for sweetspots by carefully attenuating the input sound and CV.

Update: Synth designer Rob Keeble (AM Synths, Behringer) says that the changes in the two new Behringer 2600s “are to improve the sound quality in the filters, which align further to the original ARP design and vision, and to include a reverb tank.” Taken from: https://www.synthtopia.com/content/20...

Re: Ideas for manipulation of VCOs without 1v/oct

The Boss SL-20 pedal might be of interest. It's a slicer, creating rhythmic gate patterns out of any audio source. It also does this melodically, slicing up any audio source rhythmically while also pitching the slices. You're just trying to indulge my GAS further. :D Looks cool though, I'll check i...

Re: BIA analog alternatives?

SSF Entity Percussion is an analog module that gives you a huge amount of flexibility. It's not a BIA, but nothing else really is. The manual for the Basimilus does diagram out the voice structure. Maybe you can get some patch ideas from that using what ever oscillators and wavefolders you have. Ye...

Re: BIA analog alternatives?

BIA has several modes, as you know, which is always tough/expensive to replicate in the analog realm. I don't know of anything with the same kind of topology but there are many really cool, analog drum voices in eurorack. The SSF Entity series, for instance.

Development! I really like the A-155, way more than I expected. I hope the switches can take some abuse because I'll use them a million times in 2021.

Presonus StudioLive AR16 USB records all channels separately. It lacks some of the functions from the UFX1604 but works rathe...

Re: Any sequencers that allow you to send cv and control individual notes in the sequence?

Doepfer A-155 has inputs for each step of the bottom row. However, when patching anything into those inputs you replace the signal and the knob for that step starts acting as an attenuator, so you are not really controlling the A-155 step as much as the A-155 is used as a sequental switch.
