I should caveat my previous reply by saying that I had to move away from Ableton (I used it since version 1) as I could never get things in sync. Now that I'm using Logic I have no issues.

I have Yarns and it's ok for CV and gate but I had massive issues using it to clock other things such as delays, LFOs etc. I find the best module to keep everything in sync is the Malekko Sync (4HP). It has 2 clock outputs, one of which is variable and connects via USB and is absolutely rock solid. ...

They are up for sale on Erica Synths site now for 25 Euros. I just snagged one. Does anyone know if these ROM chips are going to make their way to U.S. retailers? The shipping costs for ordering from Erica directly don't justify the purchase of just this chip in my opinion. Meh, I ordered one a whi...

Not the best for pitch sequencing? That’s the best use for it IMO, especially with the built in scales. Oh yeah all the scales are great, but 5 octaves on that slider is hard af. For arpeggio-ish sounds it’s great and very playable. Less so when you want to tune each note. If it had a 0-2volt mode ...

I would like to know this too. I would really like to buy an ES6 but I won't due to my Disting experience so would definitely be interested in hearing if anyone's done this DIY. To be honest, it'd be better if ES could do two versions - one with the LED jacks for those who, mystifyingly, want them a...

Although it doesn’t generate clock itself, so might not be what you’re looking for, I use Malekko Sync clocked from a DAW. It has MIdI in and out over USB or DIN (with dongles), reset, a 16th note clock output and a variable clock output, all in 4HP. I’ve found it to be solid whereas I’ve had issues...

This is by far one of my favorite modules that I own. I do have one small gripe though, and I am wondering if there is something I am overlooking. I like to run my tracks out of the Voltage Block at different clock divisions. The problem is that when I go to move a slider to change a sequence, the ...

Sweet, never thought of that. Algorithm H3 works perfectly for my needs. That module was in my shopping cart so thanks for the legendary work saving me $125 plus $30 shipping.

:hail:

I may pick it up in the future though.

Transposer module which can handle semitones?

Hey guys, any idea if such a module exists. I generally use the precision adder on the Disting which is fine for octave switching but, with octaves turned off, it's a real pain in the arse to dial in say 2 semitones to take a C to a D. All the precision adders I've seen seem to work the same way. In...

I have a Pyramid and it was initially paired with Yarns as my only sequencer for eurorack.

I like to do a lot of random stuff but mixed in w...

Magneto is an unbelievably good module but either I can't work out how to get the the sampling / looping bit to work right, or it the only part of the module that's a bit shit. It's my favourite effect module though.

I just use a trigger/gate sequencer to open an envelope most of the time but, if I have a drone going, then sample and hold is the correct answer. CV to S&H then to the v/oct (or other CVable input) the send a trigger/gate to the S&H every time you want the voltage change.

I haven’t measured mine but can confirm the latest batch is most certainly not 117mm deep. 49mm seems right.

Agreed.

I love Xaoc and have loads of their modules but the odd HP truly pisses me off.

Now I have Nin (3HP) which cancels Poti (3HP) out but leaves me with an odd number from Kamieniec (9HP). WTF would you make a module 9HP wide when almost every other module you make is 10 HP FFS?
