Anyone experiencing noise like this from their unit? I get a good bit of noise when I move the Mix knob CW from dry. It sounds like the output is distorting all the time? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MmX-RZKaDNSHXVYCI2Hfoetui4eieD1t/view?usp=sharing I just came here to ask about this! It is not...

Thanks for the follow-up!

I'm still really loving this filter - and such a fun, simple build.

Here's a bit I just made playing around with the Final output, and using sync mode with a Turing Machine on osc A. The "percussion" is the Strike input and the Angle being triggered by a clock divider. This is just DPO, one wave going through the Xaoc Phase Rotator, and some Reverb: https://soundclo...

leftbracket Thank you! I'll do some studying accordingly. DPO just arrived yesterday and initial results are off-the-charts... It seems like it will take more work to learn to tame it than to learn to pull weird stuff out of it, and I like that!

First off, can't answer this - so apologies. However, I have the eurorack Drone Commander + Expander and would be happy to run any tests or answer questions about that setup to the best of my ability if you are curious.

Hey mantid. 1) The traditional application of this is just like a DJ mixer's cue function... you can bring in / tune / adjust signals before bringing them into the main mix with the fader. 2) No - those are aux sends for *channels* 1 and 2 (and 3 and 4), not *auxes* 1 and 2 overall. 1) I understand...

My Pulsar arrived yesterday, and it seems the Mode encoder push doesn't work. For example, in Sequence mode, I can rotate it and see the cursor moving, but clicking it won't toggle a step.

I just like more info than less. I've figured out all the apparent function via trial and error at this point and do love this filter. The two CV inputs for Cutoff is a fun approach, although I wouldn't have minded one for resonance.

An Unapologetic Ode to Rings

It may or may not feel like cheating, but I bought Rings because I love to listen to it do its ring-thing... Here it is playing rather nicely (imho) with Kamieniec and a little bass-drum propulsion from 0-coast:

In my tests, these do work pretty reliably as triggers - I thought you were talking about reliably sending something like volt-per-octave signals (or in your case, using a specific frequency to select a sample). If you just need to hit "go" on the unit, this is absolutely what these are great at!

Thanks for the follow up and nice idea with the shorting cables. Continuing my experiments using Blinds to force 0v, I've noticed a hint of bleedthrough on channels which should be empty. Let me know if you have this, too. I don't think it is a problem, practically speaking, but is something to be a...

I don't think these will be your best bet as voltage through them is unreliable and seems like it could change per-day based on skin and atmospheric conditions. These can work fine as triggers, if you have a solid constant source of voltage (like a VCA turned up), but for a _specific_ voltage, you'r...

So... The "fix" that ADDAC supplied STILL doesn't work - but - they emailed me one which does. I'm not sure if they are ready to release it (allegedly their webserver was hacked and this is a priority). If you bought resistors to stack onto the existing ones, you may want to hold off. The "new" fix ...

I haven't heard back from ADDAC yet but given I would like to use this to control frequency voltage, those values are not going to work so well. Maybe I can make peace with it as a "rotating pitch shifter"? :despair: :despair: I'm also surprised that Thonk hasn't followed up on my request to make su...
