Re: Generative modules for 7u 104hp

I'd say it's essential to keep it interesting. Therefore: VCAs, VC mixers, modulators, switches... Take a look at the Doepfer A-135-2, 145-4, 151. In my opinion, you can't go wrong wih those.

Re: Book recommendations on synthesis techniques / sound design

I've ordered a copy of "Patch & Tweak" and read various chapters of the "Sound On Sound" series (again). Thanks again, everybody.

Re: 4hp Filter and VCA module

Does it have to be one module? If not, maybe two modules of your choice by 2hp?

Re: Book recommendations on synthesis techniques / sound design

This is a bit more of a self guided suggestion but you could make a list of particular things you're interested in learning to synthesize and individually research. For example, take some time learning how to spin your own hi hats. Hi hats are pretty easy, you can get away with just white noise, a ...

Re: Book recommendations on synthesis techniques / sound design

Both Patch & Tweak books are great resources. The patches are the most useful part of Patch and Tweak for me, but I wouldn't recommend it for general sound design. It doesn't teach you how to make a solo cello, how to make a string ensemble, how to artfully tune FM operators to make a bell, etc. 1....

Book recommendations on synthesis techniques / sound design

Hi everyone, I'm looking for book recommendations on synthesis techniques / sound design. Ideally with a focus on analogue (modular or non-modular) gear. Doesn't need to (but can) go into detail about the theoretical side of things. Should give practical tips on how to synthesize all kinds of things...

Would the FMR Audio RNC or RNLA work for you? Not modules, but not 19" either.

Re: How do you use LFOs?

mix the output of the ADSR and the LFO before going into whatever it's modulating This is what I had in mind. One thing you could try would be to mix them so that the envelope does the heavy lifting and the LFO just adds a bit of wobble in order to make it a bit more interesting. Pretty standard, b...

Re: How do you use LFOs?

I like to use multiple, free running (un-synced), mostly slow LFOs to do all kinds of things: Square waves into logic modules give you unpredictable gates (in the sense that you can't predict when they start and how long they are) at the "And" output. Triangle waves can open and close VCAs to add mo...

Looks like a lot of fun can be had with that system, but maybe don't buy a Monsoon right now... Just in case a new version of the real deal comes along...?

Re: What new booty did you buy?

On my unit, the PFL switches make a noise when I press them, do your ones do that, too? I haven't systematically checked every single pot, switch, fader and socket, but so far, other than that, I haven't noticed anything unsual, no crackling pots, etc. Which is why I'm hoping that the PFL thing is ...

Nice, 8 busses. Looks massive 😎 Cheers. Sounds massive, too. Really happy with it, because it is not only a bunch of great pres and eqs, but also very versatile in terms of routing.

Re: Doepfer A-100 LCB versus LC6sw price

I was wondering if anyone knew why the A-100 low-cost base case (one horizontal plus one at 45 degrees) is so much more expensive than the regular vertical A-100 low cost case with the same 6U 84hp capacity. I'd guess it's manufacturing cost related, but I wasn't sure if there's another reason. Hav...

I know two people who successfully use the Ladik MIDI to Trigger module and like it, the M-210.

No experience with the Erica version, myself, but it's a fine brand in general.
Thanks! Wasn't aware of the Ladik one, will look into it.

Ripples makes a great kickdrum (and an even better tom).
It sure does β€” I'll send two separate envelopes to Ripples, one to the Gain input for decay, and a 2nd to its Freq input to dial in some thump.
Very nice, thanks for sharing. Especially like the ones at 1:11, 1:30 and 1:40.
