Re: Disting MK4 quantizers: Modes like locrian, dorian, phrygian etc?

Ah ok, that's very interesting, thanks a lot for the responses. I think I was assuming e.g. Dorian and Major were different because I was mis-interpretating this René scales cheat sheet. Makes much more sense now. Thank you!

Disting MK4 quantizers: Modes like locrian, dorian, phrygian etc?

My music theory limited (read near-absent) knowledge might have me make wrong assumptions here, but does anyone know if there is some sort of cheat sheet that would indicate which scales match modes? E.g. all your vco's are tuned to the same root note, you're building a patch that you know is in Dor...

Re: MakeNoise Mimeophon

I have got my mimeophone for a week now, allready using it in DAW productions. Its incredible musical, very inspiring and from subtile to drastic, it stays musical. It reminds of the moog spirit, but now its translated into a delay. Also great how it drops jaws when producer buddy joins the session...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

Is it possible to get a stepped random cv out of Quadrax using the alt random lfo mode? Or will I need to patch it into a sample and hold? Just tried for you, I don't think it is possible without a s&h, there seems to be at least some slew in every combination of settings I just used with the alter...

Re: Mannequins' Cold Mac??

Can anybody recommend a good weighty knob to replace the one Cold Mac comes with? I've never replaced any knobs before but I was expecting something nice and heavy and was quite let down by the feel. If it's really the feel that's your issue, just changing the knob will not affect the feedback or r...

Re: Mutable Instruments Beads (Clouds 2)

I'm looking forward to play with mine when it arrives. In the meantime, the manual states that the rerverb is "modeled on the acoustics of Thoreau’s cabin, or of a strip-mall spa". I looked up Thorerau's cabin, but that did not strike me as a very reverby enclosure... Can anyone elaborate on this? ...

Re: Cure for GAS?

Sometimes we tend to believe the illusion that just because it's "modular", we can modulate our way to the perfect system… and very conveniently, it happens to be a perfect excuse to pursue that dopamine kick.

It's also interesting to think about what exactly makes one buy modules.

Re: First time rack feedback

You may have a decent idea of what you want to achieve, but I would be careful of two things: - Some of the modules you got have specific workflows that may or may not be your cup of tea if you haven't experienced playing with a modular system for a little bit. For example, in my early days I though...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

At it's shortest length the Quadrax attack is literally 0 samples long, so pretty much instant rise. That kind of transient is just going to have a bit of an audible click. The envelopes used to be slightly longer at minimum and didn't click, but people specifically requested them to be faster / ab...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

Re: Disting Feature Requests

Interesting, thanks for the response. Do you think there's a case for a CV version of this at some point? Out of curiosity, is the main challenge the fact that CV would require the algorithm to analyse and average out the incoming signal, while everything is already "parsed" with midi?

Re: Disting Feature Requests

I was wondering if a sort of "scale learn" feature would be possible on the MK4's quantizers (or even better: it's already there somewhere and I just never noticed). Here's the ideal scenario: - You select the chromatic scale on e.g. H-3 (or even no scale at all if you want to go microtonal) - You p...

Holy shit I only just realized that the gate length output of René depends on the gate length of the clock input. How could I miss that?

That's only when Trig is not on though (just in case one day you realize it behaves differently :P)

Good points about getting the values written in the memory by just changing sections or using Scan, I never thought of doing this. That would explain why it sometimes seems to just go away for no apparent reason.

Re: What would you recommend here?

On the modulation front, there's also the Quadrax, which is a bit of a successor to the Quadra. Whenever you're patching, what is the most frequent thing that comes to mind when you hit a wall and go "I wish I could do XYZ right now"? You may get more specific suggestions if you let us know :)
