Re: FRAP TOOLS CGM modular mixer

I thought there was a way, albeit a very expensive one, to have an extra channel & group available to get 4 sends. Something with sending a direct out to another channel and having that channel send to two sends connected to a second group. Yes - As a scenario... you could use the Direct Out on Cha...

Re: FRAP TOOLS CGM modular mixer

Hello Muffs, please can you confirm this? If i understand the concept of the CGM Creative Mixer correct, i need 6 channel + 2 group and 1 master module to have a 6 channel mixer with 4 send and 4 returns for all 6 channels? Thank you You would not have 4 sends for all 6 channels. A channel can only...

The only thing I'd like in addition on the QSC is a post VCA direct out breakout module.
That would be sweet! a 2HP breakout with 8 Post-VCA direct outputs (one for each of the stereo/crossfaded inputs).
I am sure that would have required another 10-pin header on the back of QSC.

Re: Frap Tools QSC - Quad Stereo Channel Mixer

And then, if I ever were to travel, play outside, or leave the comfort of my pandemic-era hermetically-sealed and climate controlled self-isolation tank, I could reconfigure CGM as either a two channel + FX with headphone outs (C2+G+M), or a 4 stereo channel with FX and monitor mix/PFL(QSC+G+M), or...

Re: Frap Tools QSC - Quad Stereo Channel Mixer

... I can fit a QSC, 2 C's, and a G & M in my current travel setup (2x Arturia RB 6U's). That should suffice, but I could really see bringing my MIDI synths into the mix through the CGM system. Hoping to score a QSC next month as my starter, then add the G & M this summer. Your plan is exactly what...

Re: Frap Tools USTA

what is "RUN 4" in PNW? Run 2 and Run 4 on USTA are similar in function to "RS" mode on Pam's Run input. On USTA, the difference between these two modes is the behaviour that happens when the run gate goes low. Back in April 2020, Simone and I spent a lot of late nights experimenting with the run/r...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

To combine envelopes you don't want to mix them - their voltages would be added - if two overlapped you would go well above 10V and clip everything downstream. What you want is a logic OR - which you can get from Intellijel Plog or the OR module, or in Mutable Kinks, and various other logic modules....

By the way, I have a Synthesis Technology E352. Is this a "complex oscillator?" It seems pretty complex to me! It's only a "single-VCO," but you can choose up to eight oscillators in the menu and can play dual wavetables from its 'A' and 'B' outputs (plus the two-OP FM), so I don't quite understand...

How sensitive are everyone's mini-pot attenuverters für the wavefolders? If i put the wavefolder into the middle position to get an unfolded sine and feed a LFO i can't find a zero point where it isn't moving at all and the slightest adjustment of the attenuverter results in wild modulation of the ...

Frap Tools Brenso has CV control over everything (16+ inputs, not including the two V/Oct, sync, and the wavefolder gate), and 14 attenuverters... Basically everything on it has CV control.
