Re: Interest for $20 Eurorack Modules

At 20$ a piece it could be worth dropping the euro compatibility claim and just aim to create a closed system (which happens to play along with euro under certain conditions, use the same power specs and dimensions, etc).

Re: ADDAC112 VC Looper & Granular Sampling

I am wondering what's with the 16 bit / 44,1 kHz resolution. For example, Lubadh and arbhar uses 32 bit / 64 kHz and morphagene 32-bit float / 48 kHz. My old Ensoniq ASR-10 from 1992 was using 16bit / 44,1 kHz :hihi: As well how well they manage to deal with the crossfades / klicks /pops and digita...

28 pots, 9 switches, 6 buttons, 1 screen, 41 jack sockets. The size is a positive, a "micro" version would not be an improvement for me.
They mention in the manual something to the tune of "it's wider than it has to be, we put lots of space between the knobs on purpose", which is nice to see.

Re: ADDAC112 VC Looper & Granular Sampling

The manual's up on ADDACs website! Pretty lame comparison to make i know but it seems like a more granular ;) morphagene... as in more parameters but otherwise a similar paradigm. Stereo spread control, 1V/O inputs, independent loop/grain pitch.... thats very interesting. And the "deviation" knobs...!

Re: Polyend Tracker

Re: Polyend Tracker

So the only way of "exporting" a song seems to be to record it live from the headphone out (or line out or what have you - i don't own a unit (yet)) - and then with some noise issues? I read a lot of stem export being borked and i have understood this as affecting whole song export as well?

Nice to see it was "easy" (and thanks for the mouth watering sound demo).

according to the docs here https://github.com/bastl-instruments/kastle it looks like the kastle firmware runs at 8MHz so either chip will do
Ah, thank you! So 10/20 in this case is more of a maximum possible clock rate?

+48 V is for phantom power of condenser microphones. The jack above the XLRs is probably for a separate +48 V power supply.
I figure this as well - i think i have such a cable from the power brick. I don't have a reason to test this theory right now though (no phantom powered microphones)
