Re: Frequency Central Stasis Leak build thread

What about 1~4ms triggers instead of pulses?

(I don’t have a Stasis Leak but it’s on my to-build list!)

Power Supply caps

Ok, beyond the aesthetic shame, is there anything wrong with using capacitors that are a bit too large (diameter) and touch each other on my Frequency Central power supply?

Re: How to mish-mash your mono synths into a playable poly?

Yarns has another trick up its sleeve. If you set the note allocation to 4>, then the first 4 voices are 'despatched' by Yarns across its four cv and gate outs, and any more notes are sent via midi to whatever you want. So it delivers a combination of midi to cv/gate conversion for 4 voices, and th...

Re: How to mish-mash your mono synths into a playable poly?

The "Yarns" module does this really well. I used it to make my "Oberheim Four Voice" out of four monosynths (Oakley ASV modules) and it works wonderfully. Using four *different* monosynths will be difficult if you want to make them sound all the same. It is really cool to make poly patches where eac...

Re: PSIM-1 Club

Hopefully Dave has assisted you with the Clock questions. Everything I've done with "clocks" in my PSIM have been analogue gates. And I took a very simple approach to those: scan the dacs if the clock input jack has a high voltage, jump out of this loop if it's low, jump back to scan the dacs I'll d...

Re: New Oakley rack module: ADR30

If one was to build an ADR30 as a "desktop" unit with the pots on the top and hand-wired back to the Main PCB, would those wires need special shielding?

If so, can anyone give me details that would help me find & purchase the correct type? (I'm a noob as far as special wires go)

thanks!

Re: analog delay in MU?

Tony - Speaking of the ADR30... at one point you talked about part of the circuit that added a little “wobble” to the clock ( or something similar) in order to give it some more vintage character. Is it possible to add a switch that would take out this part of the circuit and make the delay be as “p...

Re: Tom Oberheim is back again

Can someone post more info about which capacitor we are talking about here? I've recently built an "Oakleyheim" Four Voice out of Oakley ASV modules. The VCF is a wonderful sounding SEM filter, and after reading some of the comments here I'd like to swap out the cap in one of the voices to see how i...

They are Davies 1900 clones. Modular Addict, SynthCube and Small Bear have them. I used Dark Grey for the LFO Freq and the 3 LFO mod amounts I used Light Grey for the ADSR #1 pots and the 3 ADSR #1 mod amounts The rest are Black, except for the VCO2 fine tune and the VCF Freq. Those were for a 1/8" ...

Made a few demos. Recorded live (no overdubs but I chopped out all the time I took changing all the knobs!) with a bit of echo, but no other effects at all. (the filter can certainly create the impression that there's a phaser or flanger involved). Voices are panned. Headphones recommended! This one...

Re: Poly CV control

Thanks Kindredlost! I left out the patch points for two reasons: 1) This was designed for polyphonic playing, not as part of my modular. I just didn't see myself using them; it's enough to have to make every knob adjustment *four* times! Adding 4x patch cables would just be too much. 2) Cost. Eighty...

ASV Four Voice

I've been wanting an Oberheim Four Voice ever since I was in high school (1980) and when I first saw the ASV, I knew what was going to happen :-) My music budget is very limited, so I had to sell my TR-808 to fund this project. Now that I've spent some time playing my "dinosaur", I have no doubt tha...

Re: If you could only have one...

I have just finished my DIY Four Voice with four Oakley ASV voices (very much like a SEM, the filter being exact!) and I friggin' love this monster.
So with $3k I would get all the parts to build an Eight Voice (with ASVs) and an integrated MIDIBox Sequencer.

Four ASVs and a Yarns. It is sounding awesome. My dream (since high school in 1980) of having a 4VS is coming to fruition :-)

Re: NEW DIY 909 DRUM MACHINE PROJECT

If you need a good "drum machine without sounds", build yourself a MIDIBox. I put 4 MIDI outs on mine, plus 8 triggers (you can have up to 64), as well as 8 voices of CV/Gate. You'll have yourself a fabulous drum programmer using just one of the 16 tracks. It's very much like the TR-606 programmer i...
