Re: What's the 'best' way to get bipolar power from a wall-wart?

I have 5x little boards available which will turn any dual voltage (AC and DC) into ± 12VDC
Input range: AC 12-16V or DC15-24V

If any of you want to buy such a board, drop be a PN. It's 5$ per piece

Re: What's the 'best' way to get bipolar power from a wall-wart?

I'm using some cheap boards from china and they do the job: https://www.ebay.de/itm/AC-DC-to-5V-15V-Dual-Voltage-Converter-Board-Mini-Rectifier-Power-Supply-Module/272811435227?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=571953810466&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 however those TO220 regulators resp. the heatsi...

Re: BEST VCF at the moment ??

not wanting to be argumentative but i disagree with this vehemently .. there are no kings of the eurorack world. Yes there is, it's called Schippmann and Cwejman i do believe there is a little snobbery involved with some module lines. a bit like ferrari snobbery or something replace the word "snobb...

You spelled Schippmann wrong
Cwejman and Schippmann are the unchallenged kings in the Eurorack world ..
It doesn't get any better in terms of quality and accuracy if not the most experimental/outta-the-box vendors

Re: VERBOS ELECTRONICS

Can someone explain me why the Verbos FO is ludicrously overpriced at 470€ at Thomann for a single freaking oscillator?
One can buy several other oscis or even different brands complex oscis for that price.

Been very happy with my Genelec 8040's for a few years now. Previously had the 8030's and the 1029a's prior to that.

Would love some 8351's though .... hmmmmmmmm :omg:
Is there a big difference between 8030 and 8040 other than a tad more SPL and bass extension?

Re: Fake TL074 chips in circulation

All ICs will be going scarce for at least the next year. Current semiconductor demand far exceeds supply, as the automotive industry is discovering and having to cut back vehicle production significantly. Most fabs are already at or near capacity, and more importantly blank wafer production is maxe...

Re: EMS like behavior in Euro

What you're missing is a Synthi is much more than the sum of its parts and attempting to "emulate the exotic textures/ sounds and controls" or even only get anything close to its sound, behaviour and interface with any assembly of eurorack modules is a pointless waste of time, money and energy.

I really wonder why they chose the VCS3 over the AKS form factor, it is nice but the briefcase version would be much more useful for travel and gigs
They probably couldn’t get any original spartanite briefcases.
as if Behringer wasn't able to come up with their own custom made suitcase
