Re: Patch and Tweak book?

Thanks for the reply, Luso. Sounds along the lines of what I was thinking. I think I could learn from it. But it is $109 worth of learn and coffee table item? I's need to buy a decent coffee table to put it on!! :D Also $109 for a book is $109 less to spend on modules. I need to buy a buffered Mult....

Patch and Tweak book?

I was thinking of buying this book. It looks good and I'm still fairly new to modular synths so I imagine I can get lots of useful information from it. It's $109 AUS so that's making me think twice. Is it worth it? I was hoping for a digital version but I gather this is not forthcoming and I guess m...

Re: Qu-Bit Data Bender

I'm excited to try this out. Seems like it will be right up my alley. I was thinking the same. Some comparisons to Morphagene, which is exciting as I Love the look of that module and don't have anything like it in my small case. Also Morphagene is bloody expensive in Australia.

Re: Why is the Mother 32 so expensive?

They are AUD1,500 here. That's about USD1,000. I would buy one at USD600. I live in Australia too. It looks like many of the Moog products have gone up in price here. A Grandmother is now retailing for AUD $2299 with a $1799 to $1949 sale price at some establishments. Late 2019 it was still retaili...

Re: DFAM help - 'advance/clock' input

...... ah, hang! Think I've figured it out. Manual says to make sure you hit 'Run/Stop' button on the DFAM to ensure it's ready to receive clock. I wasn't doing that! DOH! :doh:

DFAM help - 'advance/clock' input

I've been trying to control the DFAM's 'advance/clock' input from Reason using a gate signal from a sequencer (out via ES-3). Signal is coming out okay & works connected to 'run/stop' input but doesn't work on 'advance/clock'. I'm probably missing something fundamentally straightforward here! But I'...

Re: A few blanks to fill

Nothing wrong with adding modules just because they seem fun. 🙂 That was my thinking when buying. Sort of went with my instincts more then a grand plan. One idea was to add to what the Phenol was capable of. Also wanted to keep the whole set-up quite modest & not go too deep into the modular rabbit...

Not sure where to go now. I've got all the modulation, sequencing etc from Reason via the ES-3. Been very pleased with how that has actually worked. Expert Sleepers are a god send! Started with the Phenol & added a few modules to compliment / expand. But I'm not sure I've made the best choices. I've...

Look up "rubbert trim" on eBay and you'll come up with stuff like this, which you can fit over the bottom edge of the HEK ears.
Did the trick perfectly. It’s not going anywhere now 👍

Perfect! Thanks for the link. I had something like this in mind but my searches came up blank.

Anyone using one of these on a desktop and not in a rack? Odd question but how do you stop it skating around on your desktop every time you go near it?!

I've been hanging for the Z5000. Store just emailed to say the ZVERB & ECHOZ have just arrived. Tempted to get the ECHOZ. Not too many demos around currently though. Would be nice to hear & see a bit more.

Module for percussive, glitchy, techno stabs & noises

Looking for recommendations for this type of module. I'm thinking Moog DFAM. Always liked that. But maybe more Eurorack based rather than a big all in one device. I'm sure there's a Noise Engineering module for me. But there are a lot out there & I don't know which one I should be looking at. Plonk ...

You can also use a 3.5mm cable together with a 3.5mm jack to 1/4" plug adapter, even if the adapter (as for headphones) is TRS as long as the cable is TS. Advantage: the cable is the same as your regular patch cables in your modular, so you can swap it out with any one of those if you need a differ...

3.5mm to 1/4" patch cables?

Can you buy these? Not found many online & the first couple of places I found were sold out.

I found some stereo 3.5mm to single mono 1/4". I'm guessing these would not be much good.

Very nice. And TipTop Audio modules are very well priced usually. The Z5000 looks like something I'd buy. I have a Erica Black Hole V1. I've been thinking of selling it. But it looks like it fills a similar role to the Z5000. So am I just wanting a new module?! :hihi:

I like the idea of self contained, affordable semi-modular devices. A good way to get into it but maybe not such a great way to learn modular synthesis. I mean you don't have to patch to get cool shit going on. The patching is more of a bonus to take more standard synthesis methods towards new terri...

I received my ES-3 last week. This is game changing. No set-up beyond a few tweaks to the audio interface settings & enabling the outputs in my DAW. Beyond that it's pretty straight forward. Fantastic.
