Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

Totally off topic, I know, but after logging some hours with a ZPO after owning a Rubicon, my impression is simply these are two totally different sounding oscillators. The cool thing about both is the enormous range of timbres they both offer, and the multitude of simultaneous waveform outputs. I'm...

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

This is really great, thanks you guys. I now own both modules and also now understand both way better than before this thread. I'm sure everyone is getting something different out of it, but I have a lot of new information I want to listen for while using these, very appreciative of the discussion.

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

@analogPedagog - discussion of the ZPO's implementation seems to have taken a backseat. I'm awaiting on one arriving Monday and keen to understand the technical background in the context of this discussion. I think I understand Bernie's last post about the EN129, halting at 0 and restarting in the d...

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

So does that mean symmetry is basically just an offset added to the linear FM signal before it goes into the balanced modulator? Yes. On the Rubicon 2 panel: The raw TZFM input signal goes through a linearized 2164 whose gain is determined by the Index setting and input. The amplified (or attenuate...

Re: Waldorf nw1

Yeah, they are big modules for sure. I had enough space so I wasn't concerned and I got a good price on them. The one thing though is they both go above and beyond, the vcf has a ton of inputs and outputs and offers 2 stages of distortion. And the VCA has really cool features like linking, so you ca...

Re: Waldorf nw1

I've got the Waldorf VCF1 and DVCA working together with the NW1 now, they really are tailor made for the oscillator. The DVCA actually can sound very much like a LPG, but it also does give an adjustable warmth to the NW1 that's really nice. The distortion on the VCF1 works really well with the osci...

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

I've owned a Rubicon2 for about 6 months and I just bought a ZPO and am waiting on it to arrive. I really like Basari's videos on the ZPO but I think the designer of the Rubicon is right to take exception to the comparison because it's a bit prejudicial. I know it's not meant to be at all, but I thi...

Re: BEST VCF at the moment ??

I have 3 and I'm very happy with all of them. Boomstar 4075 is a reissue of the Arp 4072 filter. It's a 4 pole lpf, not something that covers all the bases at all, all it does is sound fantastic. I like having it because it's a great foundation filter with just top notch sonics. The resonance doesn'...

Re: Waldorf nw1

I've been enjoying mine, love the sound of it and the spectrum knob is brilliant. Odd thing, it doesn't play well with my Erica Synths Fusion VCA, the signal is really weak and even the attack and release doesn't seem right, the attack is delayed somehow. I've patched other oscillators in just to ma...

Re: Voltage Research Laboratory!! Pitt Mod......

I wonder if any owners could offer some feedback on particularly the primary osc warp mode for one thing. Has anyone scoped it to see what it's doing? I love the video demos but can't tell what that warp actually does? And the wavefolding, is it different/better than other wavefolders out there? I h...

Re: Disting Mk4 wavetables question

Love the Wavetable Waveshaper algorithm! Got some really interesting results out of that. That's basically what the Buchla 259e does, right? I love this module.

Re: Disting Mk4 wavetables question

So mine is working now! I did have where it said -wavelength=256 after each file name. But then I made it to where it was right after the version line at the top. I wonder if maybe it was the encoding that was the problem. I just made a copy in Textedit on Mac and made sure it was UTF-8, I think tha...

Not yet, Os has generously agreed to look at the files, hopefully he can shed light. I'm gonna upload later, working ATM.

Re: Disting Mk4 wavetables question

I just recently got a Disting mk4, having trouble loading the wavetables that came with WaveEdit. I put all 4 .Wav files in a wavetables folder on a micro SD card. Then I made a wavetable-playlist.txt file and listed all 4 wavs and put a line under each that says -wavelength=256. I believe waveedit ...

Technique for using feedback to create exponential envelopes

I'm pretty new to the modular world though I'm fairly experienced with audio engineering/mixing. I compose electronic music, among other things and have been using software until this year and now my Eurorack system is rapidly expanding. I've been reading this forum a lot and watching a lot of onlin...
