Re: 2 oscillators into 1 filter?

You could run each oscillator output into a separate VCA with envelope gated by the gate for the respective oscillator's note. A simple resistive mixer could be used to tie the two VCA outputs into the filter input. Basically just two 100K resistors between the VCA outputs and the filter input.

Re: The Sky is Falling!

Behringer just put out a youtube video on using their Eurorack modules to expand their semi-modular synths. ... After seeing that video it seems to me the marked they're are going for are the really young beginners to synthesis. It felt he was talking to me like I'm a child, — not just ignorant. Of...

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

I had the thought last night that Behringer is ultimately trying to compete against software plug-in's with the price point their synths, not other hardware manufacturers. I think in a way that is true. Thinking back to when I was a kid and my family didn't have a lot of money, in today's dollars $...

Behringer just put out a youtube video on using their Eurorack modules to expand their semi-modular synths.

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

Thanks to KSS and KL1982 for a fair discussion of this. Good points well said. Many among us get very emotional about the threat of Behringer. However, love them or hate them, they are not going away.

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

It is also important to remember that part of the patent agreement that gives exclusive rights for a period of years also makes the idea free for anyone to use after the patent period expires. If Behringer copies something with an expired patent (like the Model D) then that is totally legit. However...

Re: Harmonic Filtering software?

There are ways to convert a signal into its spectra (harmonics) in real-time, process it to remove harmonics, and convert it back into a signal. However, they are not perfect and will introduce some distortion.

Although most of what Big B is selling is clones of older gear, the Neutron is a legitimately new product.

It requires release of source code . That is not complete. Yes, I didn't post the complete text of the license. But to say that it "precludes" or even just "pretty much" precludes commercial use, is actively misleading. Not wanting to mislead anyone, but it is best to be cautious with GNU open sour...

Re: Open source being used commercially

What Behringer is doing is legal. They know, and they have no plans to change. They shamelessly copy Yamaha, Roland, etc. They would not be doing that if there was a legal liability. I wouldn't expect them to give two hoots about doing the same to smaller parties. The GNU license is another story. ...

Re: Open source being used commercially

If you create software and release it under an open license then you should expect that people will use it for both commercial and non-commercial uses. Giving credit to the original developer is a courtesy that should always be done, but it is not always required by the license and may be impractica...

A sellers's market in used modules is great for manufacturers of new modules. If someone know that they can sell a module for 85 to 90% of the new price then they are likely to buy and try many new modules. If the used market was more like normal goods, then there would be no buy and try and new mod...
