Re: Which modules to start for a guitar modular system?

The sound of guitar DIs is unpleasant, so I'd start with something that includes cab sims/IRs. Either the computer or a modeling box like Axe FX/Helix/Kempler. Those usually have send/returns, which boosts the flexibility. Of course, if you get one of those, you might not want a modular to process y...

Re: Can you hear the difference?

It could be Soundcloud. I think they switched to a crappy codec a few years ago, 64kbps OGG or something. Before I think it was 128kbps MP3. Even I can hear the difference A/Bing those specific bit rates with decent ones.

Re: Vidiot vs. Chromamagnon

I'm pretty certain from reading LZX's comments that Chromamagnon has a fully analog signal path, and that it can do internal feedback routings. Yeah I've got the sense that LZX gear can be hard to come by. I'm keeping an eye out for a used Vidiot, and if one doesn't show up by the Chromamagnon's rel...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

You can set the modulation to be 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% by pressing the destination button. It gets less bright until it gets to zero modulation.

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

I can't believe I haven't made more use of level modulation. I've been using external VCAs this whole time. This makes working with velocity fast, and it saves me a ton of attenuverters! And since Quadrax clips at +-5v, I should have the attenuversion button at 50% or below when using 10v outputs. D...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

I just updated to the latest but I don't recall this being in the changelist. I just realized I have a rudimentary scope now (Hemispheres O_c), so I think I can figure this out pretty quick. I'll report back.

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

I've had a little trouble wrapping my head around level modulation since there's no manual section and I have no scope. So the envelope/lfo outputs at 10v or +/-5v, and by putting in an -5v offset, I attenuate it to 0v? For some reason I initially thought that assigning level turned the envelope out...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

I have a CV offset generator (Blinds) and Intellijel has CV ins to the level of channels. I should be able to use CV offset to attenuvert all the channels globally, right? Say I wanted to have all the channels outputting 0-1v.

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

The Quadrax should be capable of outputting 10v envelopes, not 8v. Contour 1 also only outputs 10v. Are you sure you don't have Quadrax set to output +5v instead of +10v?

Re: Granular sampler Module / combo? (granulator II-ish)

Your main options are going to be Make Noise Morphagene, Instruo Arbhar, and Qu-Bit Nebulae v2. They are all different takes on granular, and as with software granular synths, they all have their own pros and cons. Good luck figuring out which is for you!

Re: How did you pick your sequencer?

For triggers, I went with the Qubit Pulsar. It's got 4 outs, division and multiplication, and Euclidian stuff. In retrospect, I would have gone with Intellijel Steppy. I don't use the Euclidian aspect or CV inputs of Pulsar often. For CV, I opted for the Mimetic Digitalis because I wanted something ...

Re: Let's talk about quad-modules (edit: quadules?)

I'm not into small one/two channel modules. I'd rather have fewer, larger, integrated modules than many tiny fiddly ones. Not a big fan of my Intellijel Dual VCA in this regard. Quad seems to be the category with the most modules, so I've embraced it. But if people step up to 6 or 8, I'd be even hap...

Re: Introducing Maestro - 6 channel clocked modulation controller from Acid Rain Technology

Someone pointed out that it recalls NI Massive's performer system. Cool to see a concept ported from DAWs/vsts to eurorack. Attenuversion would be a big plus. Intellijel Quadrax lets you attenuvert incoming CV to 0, 25, 50, 75, and 100% with button presses. Adding it might have complicated the UI to...

Re: Schlappi Engineering Interstellar Radio

You might be disappointed in the IR's foley/sfx potential if you're not using some in-the-box processing with it. It is more of a noise source than the radio/spacey sound the name implies. I believe it's based on either automotive or medical equipment, I can't remember which. As an effect, it's a bi...

Re: Schlappi modules

The Schlappi modules convinced me to get into Eurorack. Angle Grinder is equally capable as an oscillator, waveshaper, and filter. It's effectively a 4D analog wavetable oscillator, as all 4 grind sliders interact in a complex way. Or you can think of it as 4 kinds of entangled PWM. Thick PWM-y soun...
