Re: FIVE12 Eurorack Vector Sequencer

Ok, for anyone on the fence about a vector, the native launchpad integration is game changing.

Launching clips and scenes.. making real time changes to drum patterns and basslines. This used to be the sequencer you programmed. Now it's something you can sketch stuff on and play live.

Re: Best light travel cases

After lugging around a heavy make noise cv case on airplanes I built a travel case out of an old attaché. It seems impossibly shallow but it’s amazing what you can get in there. 7B43444D-5864-4BE3-82BA-D06F871D6F06.jpeg 5391CB29-0216-4191-B6BA-358BC521876E.jpeg 5761E048-1C5E-4B39-AB24-CD5C670C3FA2.j...

Re: Lyra-8 DIY expansion and panels

Great comments here on revisions. Even with board B switches turned around, I find the experimental nature of Lyra means that the impact of these inconsistencies are totally fine. It's not like it's a filter cutoff where there's muscle memory.. The sounds are out there, and the interface is too.. I ...

Re: 2021 : which soldering station, desoldering gun, etc,?

Hakko fx888 is a high quality bargain. I’d not worry about a matching desoldering kit.

Do strongly consider fume extraction and a panavice or similar pcb holder.

My surprise fave was a hakko double solder roll holder - it doubles as a tool holder and magnetic base for helping hands etc.

Re: The 2021 Show Us Your DIY Builds Thread!

I finished off the Lyra-8 with the flounderguts panel and expansions.

It was a fun challenge to wire it up in such a way that key components were accessible for service, and the main board could still be removed.

Re: DIY Mutable Unsuccessful Builds

Have you inadvertently used a 2.5V voltage reference instead of a 10V component? Yes. This is exactly what I did. :party: Thanks cnicht and Adam, who suggested the same thing. (Thx for the support, Adam btw.). I had ruled this out initially because "why on earth would I have a selection of LM4040s?...

Re: Soma - LYRA-8 DIY Kit

Success! Just wanted to document the two troubleshooting steps I had to take to get it running, since not having the schematic is really a pain. 1) Channel 4 wouldn't trigger unless the envelope switch was set to "slow". I fixed this by swapping out a faulty dupont jumper cable. 2) Channel 7 did tri...

Very nice! I like the case a little less fancy, like yours! What stand is that you have it on?

It's on an amp stand, designed to get small guitar amps off the floor.

Re: *** Vintage dealers taking the piss on used market ***

this is an interesting phenomenon. i think it's partly driven by old timers reminiscing about synths they wanted and the great music they shaped when growing up, but could never afford, which lead lead to a fetishization of vintage analog gear. Sadly enough though, no amount of vintage gear will br...

If you don’t mind the doepfer aesthetic it is really hard to beat for value, durability, authenticity. Arturia cases are a good deal, as are the mantis - I see them used all the time.

I bought one at the very beginning as a learning tool, and now that I’ve diversified, it gets used mostly as a too-big mini mixer, attenuator. If I had space pressure I’d probably sell it.

This is the correct answer! I have a Moog GM, plus a 2104 Moog Werkstatt. I use the Werkstatt to provide an additional envelope, and LFO, and VCO for the GM. It is quite a cheap way to source the additional functionality, and Werkstatt's are a lot cheaper than Mother 32's. Note that you will need to...
