I second this. I'm not against buying used but I'm not experienced enough yet to know when I'm being had.

Re: Cheapest Early Moog system

I have a mini brute; it's not amazing but if you get it for a good price (I paid $300 CAD), it's fun and won't break the bank. A Sub 25 is a good option as well for Moog synths around that price range. A Grandmother might not be a bad option; it has a little patching action on it. There's also the S...

Re: Cables help

TY for thoughts. I know cables and probably everything with modular is personal but the problem is I'm starting in the middle of a pandemic. It's good for the fact that I have some spare time to experiment, but it's bad because I can't get to my local store to test said cables you mentioned and see ...

Re: So, some time off and ...

I've tried selling a bunch of "classics" like the Toppo Triple Wave Folder and have simply given up because there's no demand - and the module is still really nice. Save tons of money: buy "old" modules. As someone new to this whole 'modular' thing, the problem; I have no idea what the old stuff ev...

Cables help

Hello all, First off, I will freely acknowledge that this has probably been asked before but I couldn't find a good post, and the stuff online doesn't help much. I'm looking for two things: 1) A cabling system, and 2) Which cables to get. I have a semi-mod and I'd like to use it, but the problem I h...

Re: Today my small discovery was...

My small discovery today is that the US mail system is A) very disorganized, and B) slow, probably due to Covid.

Not so much a discovery as a rant I guess :)

I make a bunch of different stands for small synths (see URL in my sig).
I checked your website and I'm not sure if it would work. The size seems perfect but I don't see any way to connect nor brace the synth based on my stand.

Need help re: stand for synth

Hello all, I picked up a minibrute. It's a cute little devil but I got a small little problem; the stand. I have full keyboard with large stands, but they're much too big for the minibrute. Currently it's sitting on a table, and that's no good long-term either. Suggestions? Also while I'm thinking o...

Watchen das Blinkenlight

I had a quick question re: a little goal for one module. Is there a module out there that has lots and lots of das Blinkenlight? I ask as I wanted at least one module with way too many Blinkenlight if possible.

IMHO, Knurlies (with their captive washers) are the way to go. Not cheap, but then again modules aren't cheap.

Re: BEGINNERS - What have you always found to be poorly explained?

West coast v East coast is most broadly defined as creating timbre from 'direct' manipulation of oscillator outputs, vs creating timbre by subtracting portions of a waveforn using a filter. This is what I mean :) I've read this and seen a few video's, but for example, if you were to take me to the ...

Re: BEGINNERS - What have you always found to be poorly explained?

1) East coast vs. West Coast (I'm used to subtractive synthesis, but trying to think outside the box) 2) As a beginner, one thing that I would like to see, which isn't mentioned here (I think it was sort of actually), is stuff on manufacturers. For example, take two bigger ones for now: Doepher and ...

Do the Eurorack-sized Serge modules still need the banana plugs and are they 3U? Is there any functional difference between the 3U and 4U modules or are the electronics the same?

Question re: Serge

Hello all. Generic question and I'm sorry for that, but what is Serge? I've researched it online, looks neat, but why would I use it instead of Eurorack? Can I use it with Eurorack/are they compatible?

If this has all been asked before (quite likely), is there a post thereof?

Trying to learn.

The question is, how did it happen? Is this module or cable likely to be responsible and could it potentially cause damage to another power board?
