Re: Is Megaohm still in business?

This thread is more like the "Megaohm Celebrity Roast"! I have nothing but good things to say about Phil, I have had the MA 20 filter ( I may need to get another, as he can still make them), the LFO 2, and a custom Stompbox Adapter. He also did a bunch of custom work for, like wiring up some smaller...

Re: Advice on a 5U skiff for a bass player

I traveled in the Wayback Machine back to 2013 to locate the datasheet for the Q-104. There are only two jumpers on the board, one which sets whether the board is being used as a Q-104 module or when it is used in a keyboard, apparently. The other jumper sets the source of the on-board +5V power su...

the dotcom midi2cv module has a little clip/jumper u have to change on the motherboard to use it for bass. Its totally not obvious, but there is some documentation on dotcom how to do it (the picture is kind of confusing).
Was this jumper on the older Q104, or is it on the Q174?

Anyway if there was a way to turn an Electro-Harmonix POG or MXR Bass Octave pedal into a module with some kinda CV out tap to the rest of the synth I'd go for that first ... CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Re: The Bull has arrived!

You are correct, I had it backwards! The Taurus 1 had Linear Controlled Oscillators, Like the original 901Bs, not exponentia...

Yes, this really screams for a decent demo and/or comparison to other MU Moog Style filters. I always read that the Expo controlled oscillators were the "mojo" for the Taurus 1, I didn't know that the filter was that unique.

Doug,

I see that the Buchla guys are getting this sequencer with the upgrades to store sequences. Are you planning on giving these upgrades to the MU units as well? Can the software get upgraded on current modules?

Let me Start by saying that I am not a "DIY" guy, and my skills with a slobbering iron are not very good.

I agree with the older part, but not about the tethered to the internet part.

I think that there is less product, lower number of manufacturers, and less direct manufacturer posts, which all lead to a lower number of posts and topics.

Best headphone amp / iOS interface for bass guitar?

With everyone staying home, I have less time to turn up the amp and practice. Is anyone using one of those headphone amps that plug into your bass? Which one? How do you interface with you iPhone or iPad to play along with YouTube or record to Garage Band?

Concerning visual feedback I found this to be a really cool solution. The drawback is, you have to have the ipad at hand in order to see the patch, otherwise you can recall 24 pre-made patched from the card itself. I guess this could be very useful for live situations.

Re: Bass pedals

I received this set of bass pedals during an equipment trade many years ago. They are custom built by someone from some organ pedals, and they have a MIDI output. The MIDI implementation looks to be pretty good, but I keep it set at one channel. The Octave up and down buttons are helpful, but I LOVE...

Re: Eurorack, next to 5U?

I recommend a bunch of 1/8"-1/4" mono cables, as well as a converter module on the 5U. At least in my system, the modules are often far enough that the cable runs get very long. So I have those conversion cables running all over. What cables are people buying that are good quality 1/8" to 1/4" mono?

Korg MS20 has two filters in series, as do other performance synths. There is also a selection of dual-filter modules many of which permit switching the order of the filters as well as switching between series and parallel, mostly in eurorack however. The point being combining filters is a common p...
