Re: Supercritical NEUTRON FLUX 8 Pole Variable Character Filter

Thanks for all the nice comments! We were thinking of posting a little bit of a “development blog” here, just to let you guys see how things are going forward 🙂 So, we've built a module tester (officially, a "Supercritical Synthesizers Neutron Flux 8 Pole Variable Character Filter Production Test Do...

When might the following batch be expected?
We hope to ship it about 6 weeks after the initial batch.

Re: Small Filters with Character

If 12HP isn't too much, we've got the Neutron Flux coming out in October, it can do both clean and very dirty.

Re: Supercritical NEUTRON FLUX 8 Pole Variable Character Filter

exciting stuff this will definitely be on my radar. Any word on restock of demon core and expansion Cool! In the US, at least Perfect Circuit seems to have the DCO in stock, although not the expander right now. Our distributor has plenty of stock, so just keep asking your favourite retailer to stoc...

Has anyone found a good MIDI type B (from keystep) to TRS 1/8 cable to use with the expander? I’m having no luck finding one!
Quick note: the expander input is bipolar, i.e. type A and B will both work.

Re: Re:

OK, that's the theory. Now I'm imagining a small expander module -- let's say 4HP -- with the following components: One oscillator core just like the one in the main module A knob and corresponding CV input for stereo spread (from mono/centered to super wide) Optionally, a bipolar knob and CV input...

Okay, it's time for the first official firmware update, v1.1 is out, see http://supercriticalsynthesizers.com/demon-core-oscillator/ (end of page)! The update fixes two things: 1. Since the control for the amplitude in the virtual VCA's is digital, there is some inherent noise when the amplitude is ...

Hi all, it's been a bit quiet here as we've been busy finishing up the first batch of modules!

Now it's just a matter of getting the firmw...

I am a bit confused with "first four polyphonic voices". Does that mean I can have only 4 voices and lose rest of 12 voices if I feed 4 1v/oct cv into 4 inputs on the expander? Or 4 voices and each voice has 4 oscillators or voices(kind of...I can't pick right word here)? With 4 voices controlled v...

The only really important thing for the Demon Core at first is that the MIDI through passes MPE data correctly. It does, the thru is an old school hardware MIDI thru, no processing, filtering etc. So here's what I think I'd need with a Linnstrument to make MPE work with an oscillator module. If you...

I'd like to see MIDI any connection on the rear with a 3p KK header (on any module with MIDI, actually). Then everyone can wire that to whatever connector they like in whatever polarity is needed (which certainly wouldn't be a 3.5mm TRS jack in my case), on the front or the rear of the modular... :...

Thanks for patiently answering so many questions. Let me re-ask one you may have missed. Any planned suppor for MPE? Or, how would the module handle MPE? Of course, sorry, I meant to answer but that one slipped my mind! So the initial version of firmware will not have MPE support. At the moment, we...

Anyway, let's continue with the CV question: So what happens if you have, say, polyphony of 5, and you play a Cmaj9 chord over MIDI. If none of the CV's are attached, then that is exactly what you get. Now, say you attach all four expander CV's, with say +1V, -1V, +2V and +3V (I'm picking easy numbe...

If it's not the only MIDI controlled thing in your rack, how would you set it up? Will there be MIDI through or something, or can you set it up with an Expert Sleepers FH-2 somehow? The Expander has a MIDI thru on TRS, with polarity selectable via a pair of jumpers. That's exactly because we antici...

Next topic, the amplitude envelopes: ...
