Re: Behringer VCS3

it is smaller. If you lay the two images over each other and size the matrix to the same size (which also sizes the knobs to be very close, you get this as a the approximate size difference. I imagine that there is one large PCB behind that panel and all the knobs and switches and cisutry are on it...

Re: Behringer VCS3

Well you can't deny that the original just looks a lot better. How long before someone comes up with a DIY project to rehouse the Behringer in a larger enclosure with bigger faceplates? Won't happen. I bet money that there is one large PCB behind that panel with all the knobs, switches and circuitr...

Re: fsr circuit design feedback

Here is a neat circuit form an old EDN magazine for making a digital SP4T switch. It uses four pushbuttons to make a "radio switch" like switching circuit but the switches could be replaced by gates easily enough.

Re: Joystick modules?

I have a Planar 2, a Choices, and two Analogue Systems joysticks. I like the feel of both the Choices Md the Planar. The planar’s recording ability and the built in quad makes it edge ahead of the Choices. The AS sticks are plain sticks and work great, just no extra features. They are bi-polar which...

Many points of measurement that can be taken from the rear panel view. The USB Type B connector, the MIDI din connectors, the jacks.

Re: Need plain-vanilla multi-LFO for panning—most bang-for-the-buck?

Got late to this discussion but would make this one suggestion - The Doepfer A-143-9 Quadrature LFO. If you want to have four channels panning around with them "chasing" each other, this is the module to use. Great for quad. Another is the A-144 Morph controller, one input that turns on four outs in...

The originals didn't have them either. Remember the originals also had 0.32V/octave cv control.

Re: Behringer VCS3

If the matrix has been buffered it may be possible to inject into the matrix but signals may be inverted. The matrix is definitely not buffered. To do that correctly, you would need a connection for every cross-point and not horizontal and vertical busses like their matrix does. As far as injecting...

Re: Your unusual approach to modular!

Besides the big variation in the many complex timbres, I'm really impressed by the way you handle the stereo imaging. Not least considering, that this is a live situation. That is often one of my big headaches when creating soundscapes with a modular setup. The panning effects are made with the VCA...

Re: Behringer VCS3

I really wonder why they chose the VCS3 over the AKS form factor, it is nice but the briefcase version would be much more useful for travel and gigs They probably couldn’t get any original spartanite briefcases. I did a lot of gigging with a VCS3, my first synthesizer, and it is a real pain in the ...

I'm wondering whether I should put in some ventilation holes. The case is curved and has quite a bit of space in t...

Re: Simple CV to MIDI modules?

I'm kinda looking for a more programmable CV to MIDI converter than the Doepfer A-192 I have now. I want more control over my Nord Modulars from external controllers. There are lots more to choose from than there was when I got my A-192.

Re: Patchable filters!

My vote for the WMD Micro Hadron Collider. It is a dual filter and though it has a lot of CV ins and Audio ins/outs, its power is in its internal routing system. You can easily choose filter types and serial or parallel or independent souring. They can share CVs through a normalization setup, of run...

I would stay small but make the smallest size a standard 6U x 84HP cabinet. Pick a brand that stacks easily. Buy more cabinets, or make your own, when you grow out of it. That is what I did.

Here is the dimensions and varieties of the Vector version of the threaded strips. You can get these from most all online sources for vector gear. I believe they are for M2.5 screws.
