Re: Favourite Delay Units

Nemesis for the complex and unusual delays (with a MIDI controller)
Fabrikat Pladask for the completely weird granular crazy stuff
Zen Delay for cut and crunch

Re: Patching Panda Moon Phase filter

Just got mine today and having just read this first :eek: I quickly racked it up and had a play for about 30 minutes. The resonance certainly does cut the bass in many modes when past 12 o'clock, but is not a killer imo. Can't hear any clipping at all. With a little CV into the filter, resonance, im...

Re: Weird LFO options?

Re the Erica Modulator: I always have them synced so rate is entirely dependent on the incoming clock. I don;t recall ever pushing them into audio though. OTOH for weirdness they have an inbuilt amp so you can do "rising loops" as well as a noise setting.

Re: Weird LFO options?

A dual LFO with a steady clock you say? Well, that sounds a lot like my favorite modulation module - I have three :). Gotta love that phase knob, and syncs beautifully.

Re: ADDAC 215’s unobtanium status and Perfect Circuit’s “coming soon” mystique

Not a fan of Perfect Circuit. When I tried to return a faulty module to them under warranty they wanted to charge me more than half the module's price just for one-way shipping. No thanks.

What I found difficult to grasp when I began was voltage control over pitch - where and how it can be manipulated.

Re: What is the worst synth sounding you ever bought and why ?

I see the Poly800 is getting a bit of bad press, which it probably deserved, it was a bit boring., But the Poly800 MkII was a different beast, especially with its built in delay which was excellent, and six-stage envelope. I also liked that you could power it with batteries. I played one live for a ...

Re: The Division Department - 01/IV Drum Synthesizer

To add to that: I think the 01/IV really needs some sort of external MIDI controller to make sure you don't get stuck in weird drone modes and such. Also helps for tuning the hats, changing LFO function etc. I've not used the Vermona Mk3 but have listened to the demos and was certainly struck by the...

A more refined version has a purely human "precursor civilzation" that passed on its knowledge after a cataclysmic impact that ended the last ice age.

Re: Lyra-8 'Organismic' ambient synthesizer

Long time reader/lurker over here, first post. Here is a video that I made with just the Lyra, on my Youtube channel there are more videos which feature the Lyra, some of them in a more subtle way, surrounded by other instruments/sounds.

Re: If you had to pick one OSC for a small system. Which one would that be?

Call me a heretic but I never felt any inspiration or excitement from Plaits. I much prefer the Joranalogue 3 as a wilder choice. Perhaps add a 2hp vco v2 to that, or even a Disting Mk4 for extra sample-based interest.

Re: Gift to get my girlfriend into my hobby?

If she's a decent piano player then why not get her a decent piano. Your part of the deal could be to work out the best way to mic it up for recording. Perhaps even add a really good looping pedal so she could do some advanced overdubs.
