Re: External oscilloscope?

But on DATA you can choose to watch just one waveform. You can select which channels are shown or not. And use the Voltage settings to "zoom" that waveform... as you would with any other oscilloscope, too. :despair:

Re: External oscilloscope?

You are right, of course. A dedicated oscilloscope will usually do a better job at what it is supposed to do, offer a bigger screen and not occupy rackspace, either. And some can be had at a very nice price, too. But I have had some experiences with the UNI-T stuff, and I can't vote for it. It reall...

Re: Possibly Ruined Case & Module w/ Wrong AC Adapter?

I had a look on cre8 audios website, but I couln't find the stats on the powerbrick that is delivered with the case. Do you have the manual for the case on hand? It should definitely have the values for the ac-adapter in there I also looked at their website, and it looks like the 15V 2400mA is exac...

Re: Quadigy ADSR alternative?

Frankly, I never found the "live" aspect to be all that real with Quadigy. This module is rather deep, and to make full use of what it has to offer, I'm still caught up in checking parameters and settings. It IS, after all, four more or less individual and very advanced envelopes with just one set o...

Re: How to split cv sequence in high and low outputs with triggers?

You mean distributing the v/oct between two vcos depending on the played notes? Tricky. I'd say you'll need a buffered mult in the first place because you will need to share the pitch cv among three different modules: the two vcos and one that will control the switching. Very likely things will not ...

Re: Why can't I record a guitar tone for shit?

Depends on the recording situation and the nature of the sound you're aiming for. The "right tool for the job" approach can make life a lot easier. There's a world beyond the classic "SM57 close mic" setup, too, particularly in a studio environment. But even on stage, where close mic'ing is mandator...

Re: Where or How to learn everything about modular synthesizer?

I would just add that learning about the acoustics of musical instruments (traditional ones) can be very useful. A non-rigorous familiarity with the physics of instruments can be helpful because analog electronics in modulars mostly are analagous to those same mechanisms . This latter part (in ital...

I'm with versipellis on this matter, at least in a general view. True random means unpredictable, this was said before. But to get a musical result from that, most of us would use all sorts of regulatory instances. This simply isn't random anymore. It may still be chaotic, but we usually try to reig...

Re: Klavis - CalTrans

Just updated, and tried the neutral calibration routine. Is it normal behaviour that after running this routine, it doesn't accept any button press anymore until it had a power cycle? Seems odd to me. Maybe I'll re-flash the update although it seemed to have worked correctly the first time.

Re: What's your most wanted "luxury" module?

I'd love to add the Assimil8or and the RT-311 or Odessa to my system. None of these I would call luxury, really, but they are big and not exactly low budget, either. They may find their way to me eventually. Unlike the SSP.

Re: EuroRackAttack?

As the RackAttack sports 24 voices, you'd need a hell of a system to put this all into the modular world. It'll be much more efficient to just sample from it what you like and feed it into a suitable sampler module (or several). And even more efficient to use one as it is and have it sitting just ne...

I have no two vca modules of the same kind, they all have different, erm, personalities. I mean beyond a light sound character.

Re: Dedicated Inverter - useful or not?

I see many uses for inverted signals, like creating negative envelopes to actively duck modulation, or using a single lfo in two opposite shapes to countermodulate two signals in a stereo patch. But these are examples of true (bipolar) inversion. There is another sort, too, that is used for logic ga...

Re: How many "voices" do you have in your modular?

Weird question indeed. I mean, I could probably squeeze 20 and a few voices out of my modular, but then, most of these wouldn't be interesting at all. Of course, for a melodic base structure, some of these "simple" voices really are used. But the modular realm gets interesting when we stray off that...

Good shot, Pelsea! 8-) I was just this second starting to type an answer that would point at PLL when yours popped up. The Doepfer 196 might be more hands on than a Disting, tho. So, PLL is a way of control over frequency, cyclewise. Then there's the amplitude. The direct approach here would be a co...

I have a feeling this concept sounds much more complicated than it really is, but I'll wait for the optional "tl:dr" version of this anyway...

Re: Tick tock

I haven't tried to create that precise flavour of sound yet, but experience tells me, to get close to a real sound you'll need both aspects together, not one or the other. And very likely, you'll need one more resonator for the lower resonance of the clock case's acoustic volume, not just the wooden...
