Re: Leaving the rack: Drone synths!

Definitely dig into the other JMT offerings as well. He makes some of my favorite drone devices. Many of the synths listed here in the original post are basic square wave drone synths, which can be pretty limited in scope.

Also check out Electro Lobotomy on Etsy.

I like the list of features, appearance, and form factor. I really hope future sound demos are more impressive.

Not crappy by any stretch - but definitely creatively mixed.
Love this track - absolutely detonates heads on a big system:)
That's a banging track. Those blown out sections are such a cool idea.

Hell yeah. Tuning Circuits. That was one of the first things that came to mind. One of my favorite albums ever.

Some more crappy music, according to the terminology of this thread, that I like:

Re: Modern Cassette Recorders

A modern cassette recorder is a computer.

Grab an IC puller. Too much force on on a tight knob might pull the shaft out which is a major PITA.

Re: KNOBS!

Not really, just pull harder lol I’ve found the intellijel knobs harder to pull off since the knobs are very new, they get looser as you take them off regularly Use a thin piece of plastic like a bike tire lever to get under and lift.

Re: KNOBS!

I would like to swap out all the knobs in my little 6U system for Davies 1900H style knobs. With my Intellijel modules (Atlantis, uVCA II, and uMod II) none of the knobs are coming loose from a moderate pull upwards. Is there a trick to getting these knobs off safely?

Re: Best (cheap) fx for crunchy drums? (Stop me buying a Boum)

The Waldorf 2-Pole desktop filter/distortion box is a good affordable option. I got one for $170 a while back, but I think they may be discontinued and more expensive now.

The MS-20 external signal processor and the Sherman Filterbank 2 are my favorites for this task though.

Those two (maybe a couple BIAs actually) plus some Tip Top 909 modules and a flexible effects module like the FX Aid XL (CV control of FX could be handy for this style) would ...

Thanks for the input everybody. I'll avoid sending signal to devices that are powered down. This question came to mind when I had my Sherman Filterbank plugged into some other stuff that was turned off. Nothing was patched to the input of the Filterbank, and the most recent version of the FB produce...

I’ve got a WMD micro hadron collider that really screams when you give it the resonance, but I wish I could find the expanders. I’d read on a forum a million years ago that its filter topology is somewhat similar. But nothing really has that Sherman sound. I have the Sherman and used to have the Ha...

Re: doepfer a-111-5 vs individual doepfer modules

I used to have a Dark Energy mk I, and it had a distinct vibe that I quite miss sometimes. It’s not very modular, but if you want a basic synth voice with its own sound and some good audio-rate mod options, it’s absolutely worth it.

Yes it can cause damage it according to this recent thread and is not recommended. https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=237412 Thanks for pointing that thread out.

Is it possible to damage a device by sending signal to input while device is off?

This is a question I have wondered for a while, and I haven't been able to find an answer. I have some drone devices with no power switch that are blasting the input of whatever they're connected to as soon as they're turned on. Could that potentially cause damage to the device(s) downstream? I figu...
