Re: Gotharman's Little deFormer 3

Great news! I’m still struggling with mixing on the LD3 sometimes, because sounds can get very crunchy and dominant quickly. EQs will be a great help there :) In the meantime, does anybody have mixing tips? I try to keep my parts’ signals very low usually, but the sounds still tend to distort quickl...

Re: Gotharman's Little deFormer 3

Starting to get more into sampling with the LD3. Here's a quick jam session, in which I play and deform a snippet from SPIKE the Percussionist's recent Drum Loop of the Day Instagram series:

Re: Marienberg VC Envelope Generator B (an ADSR Laboratory)

Thanks! I’m just discovering this module myself and it’s very inspiring. I never thought envelopes could be so important.

I will film a proper demo video explaining all the controls too, but I might wait for the production model of the module first.

Thank you! I already did the voltmeter measurements, but there’s something funny happening on my LD3, so I e-mailed Flemming.

Re: Marienberg VC Envelope Generator B (an ADSR Laboratory)

Can this EG do an ADADSR? The closest yet seen is what you called 'modern art' in the video, but even that one seems to start ADDA--- Most examples seem to be dual attack with no decay between. Great question and a nice brain teaser for me (and also for you later on :razz:). There are several answe...

Module seems nice, but 16.2 megs for a front panel picture? Can you give us a more reasonable sized panel pic?
Went ahead and made one. Here's yours converted to JPG 522K

Re: Gotharman's Little deFormer 3

Thanks for the replies. I’ll try it again, although I think I already tried both 1V and 1VS modes with the note grid an they didn’t work. Though I didn’t measure with a multimeter for the correct QaScl value. Can you please also tell me the correct CV OUT settings (in the MOR menu)? Let’s say I want...

Hey, so I‘m still having tremendous issues using the CV outputs for 1V/Oct pitch sequencing. I tried it with a quantized Controller Track now, but even when set to 1V or 1VS it just doesn‘t work well at all. Could somebody maybe tell me the exact CVout settings? I feel really stupid, but I‘m banging...

Marienberg VC Envelope Generator B (an ADSR Laboratory)

Hey, I thought I’d make a new thread for this cool upcoming 5U module to talk about it, but also about envelope generators in general maybe. I have been in regular contact with Marienberg Devices over the past year and I’ve received a prototype of their upcoming VC Envelope Generator B (just called ...

Re: Gotharman's Little deFormer 3

I have an idea regarding the audio track sample names. Could we add the BPM to the name? Right now it’s A58_05_AUDIOTRAK, so bank, preset, part and AUDIOTRAK. Using the same amount of characters but with 120 bpm added:

A58_120_05_AUDIO ... or _ATRCK ... or _AUREC :D

Re: Gotharman's Little deFormer 3

Thanks! I already thought that it might have to do with the 5V output. Personally, I wouldn’t mind if the pitch CV just cut off after 5V, but I also read here that there have been attempts to fund this feature development without success already, so it looks as if not many people need this functiona...

Re: Gotharman's Little deFormer 3

I have a question regarding the CV outs. I’ve programmed a note track to sequence an internal LD3 synth and now I would like to add an oscillator from my modular synth to the mix. So the modular VCO should simply play the same melody as the internal synth. I set the CV OUT source to keyboard, but no...

Re: budget Grooveboxes w/ sample editing

Yeah, the MPC 500 is incredibly cheap at the moment, but still super powerful. I took mine on a three week camping trip last year and created an entire album on it. It also runs from a USB powerbank with the help of a cheap 9V/12V step-up converter. Or you can just put normal AA batteries in there o...
