Re: Great table lamps - give me your ideas!

You could always upgrade your existing lamps, or find cool stuff to upgrade at any resale shop. There’s a whole ecosystem of LED lights that use these remote controls: CC01F97E-0A65-4A4D-807A-E90BDE047853.jpeg There are lots of bulbs that screw into standard fixtures, plus some high-intensity weathe...

Re: best audio recorder right now?

The iPad app for the Zoom F8 is pretty awesome. Makes it so the thing doesn’t have to be taking up space on your desk. Once you turn the F8 on and enable Bluetooth, you probably won’t need to touch it again until you power down. You can use the threaded mounting point to put it on a stubby tripod un...

Re: Did anyone start big and no regrets?

Jumping in cold or already having useful experience with something like a Nord Modular are totally different things. Going big seems pretty natural if you’re coming from a Nord background. Pretty sure Euro wouldn’t have happened like it did without Nord. It might have puttered around as a niche thin...

Re: Roland support nightmare- I need a knob!

Yeah, sounds like the best thing to do is just take good pictures of the cat nibbles and try to sell it as-is. Preferably along with a picture of the cute, furry culprit.. I fetched my friend’s TR8s anyway, and will see if any of the ‘standard knobs’ look good with it. I could post pics tomorrow if ...

Re: Roland support nightmare- I need a knob!

AFAIK, Roland has been using their own custom knob designs since the late 90s. I’d be amazed to find them on Mouser. Syntaur is probably going to be your best bet. They have parts for all kinds of synths- might be worth asking your friends if they need anything and would be willing to split the ship...

Re: Current status of US Customs fees?

UPS hit me with fees for something from Canada that was well under the $800 limit, so it’s probably wise to avoid using UPS in both directions.

Re: Roland support nightmare- I need a knob!

Kinda looks like it might be the same knob as the encoder on a TB-3. If it’s really the same part, Syntaur has them for $9.95:

I have no idea what shipping to Moscow would cost, but perhaps Syntaur has enough other stuff that you need to make it worthwhile..

Re: Roland support nightmare- I need a knob!

It’s convenient that there’s only one knob like that, so it doesn’t really need to match anything. Any black d-shaft knob that’s about the right size should look pretty good.

I’ll go get my friend’s TR8s and see if any of the standard things work well. I’ll have pics for you in a couple of days.

Keanu Reeves has not been deployed. Sometimes I think I’m super funny when I’m really just properly drunk.

Re: Adapting the EuroRack audio world for video synthesis

I'm curious what a setup capable of doing voltage controlled cuts between input sources would look like. If you’re ok with using MIDI instead of CV, the Edirol mixers would be worth a look. V4, V8, V440HD, and V4EX.. I haven’t used a V4EX, and haven’t done very much with MIDI yet on the other 3. Bu...

I donated to a cause- maybe more than I should have. Partly because there were prizes. That’s how raffles work.

If you want to look at it that way- Bubblesound stole from not only me, but from everyone who participated in the raffle.

If you’re going to do bass in modular - especially sub - a WMD DVCA will be very helpful. The zero crossing detector will get rid of key click for you when you’re using a smooth predictable waveform like sine or triangle. That way, you won’t lose punch by needing to hide the click behind a slow atta...
