I think i got it...I think? However, it seems like something is off. I set the pitch controls to noon, then I took 5v from Ornaments and Crime, plugged it into the 1vo and tuned the oscillator to middle c from the trim. Then I followed the calibration procedure. Everything kinda locked into tune and...

If I set both tuning pots to 12 oclock, tune the module to middle c via the trim, I am unable to follow the 1vo tuning procedure. My module can't go down to C2? Am I setting pitch with a dummy cable in 1v/o? Also there is some erratic behavior with module, Only when I am handling it, sometimes it kn...

Is there a more in depth calibration procedure. I am unable to get this thing to calibrate 1v/o only using one trim pot. Where does the master tune trim pot come into play? Whats a rule of thumb for panel settings and master tune settings before adjusting the 1v/o trim?

Mutable Instruments Expanded Manuals? Idiot's guides?

I have been using a lot of MI gear lately and have noticed a theme. Some of the manuals have missing information as to secret modes, Easter eggs and alternative modes. I know Clouds has a bunch of extra stuff that is well documented, but Tides v1 can be a head scratcher at times. WIth only 3 LEDs to...

I’ve built a bunch of these mutable modules with success. However, I never built on with an Atmega. I have 2 questions for the Grids module I just completed; What is the orientation for the 6 pin header? I’m not sure which way to plug in the ribbon cable. I found a precompiled hex file which I plan ...

I am pretty much done with this build, just waiting on the 1uF caps to come in from Mouser. I had simple question; Is the power switch for this unit a SPDT ON/ON switch?

You'll likely spend more hiring a tech to service this than having ADDAC fix the issue. If you go through ADDAC you'll also have the confidence of the repair being covered by them for quite a while.

4 pin XLR connectors are VERY common with professional recording equipment. Even Universal Audio (Digital) is using them.
