Isn't the name envelope follower a little self explanatory Not really helpful - this line of reasoning could be applied to many technical concepts after you understand them. Aren't terms like DC offset and attenuator self explanatory? Those terms are very explanatory once you know the lingo but can...

I'm sort of understanding it a little better now. Are you clear on what an envelope is and what an envelope generator does? Those would be good topics to understand first before moving on to envelope follower. Once you get envelope generators, here's the distinction between an envelope generator an...

Are you familiar with audio compression? It's worth mentioning that an envelope follower is one of the key components used under the hood in compression. By extracting an envelope from the audio and then sending it to a VCA's gain it is possible automate volume changes based on the strength of the a...

There's multiple ways to sync all your stuff up. A dinsync splitter (which I coincidentally sell) would be useful. The splitter takes a dinsync signal and splits it to multiple outputs (same concept as a multiple in modular synthesis): https://www.seaweedsound.com/images/products/Clockblock_1_Med.jp...

For $300 a contender could be the Strymon Deco. You'd get stereo signal path and could do similar things (although I'm sure the LoFi Junky has it's own different unique flavor): - light compression/saturation from the tape algo with optional high freq roll off - chorusing via random wobble - should ...

There's a new Planar 2 firmware v1.02 on the Intellijel site. When I try to download the PC version Chrome browser says it "may be dangerous" and blocks the download. Anyone else getting that?

I'd like to offer some feedback and hopefully you don't take offense: the "ModularParts.net" logo text is a deal breaker for me.

Can the panel be reversed or is there text on the back side? :hmm:

Sad news to hear. I used to enjoy spending hours pouring over his website catalog. I built only one Blacet module - the Time Machine analog delay behind a "Stooge" Larry panel and John's module was the crown jewel of my little MOTM DIY kit synth.

I see what you did there.. I think it sounds really good. Oscs sounds kinda DCOish in a good way and filters seem really good. Price seems unbelievable. Maybe they can put an OLED on there as the display looks kinda dated.

A good non technical analogy is think of a BPM display like a car's speedometer. If two cars go on a long road trip at the same speed according to the speedometer, would you expect them to arrive at the exact same time (assume no traffic)?

What kind of music are you doing? Do you want a mono or poly?

Nord Modular, Oberheim Matrix 6 or 1000, Ensoniq ESQ-1 or SQ-80 would fit the bill.

Could get a cheapie pre-made 1/4" snake and cut the connectors off one side then replace with 1/8". It'd halve the workload.

It's better to roll your own though with good quality parts.
