Is this a grounding problem?

Several eurorack cases. Touch one. Rest sensitive inner arm against another (case outer or Doepfer antenna). Feel a sizzle. 🤨 That’s wrong, right? (Though I have had similar with my laptop?!) Doesn’t feel hardcore, but a noticeable “ooo”. If so, could it be a module? I’ve had this with two cases tha...

Re: Claravox theremin

I looked on UK websites this morning, out of interest.

April seemed to be the earliest UK punts, with others putting it at 3 months or more. Interesting if they're beginning to land elsewhere! Suspect the UK dates are more 'we have no chuffing idea m8' holding dates.

Hey, welcome to the forum. I appreciate the attempt to try something new. But I don't really get the point.

Re: Pros/cons to starting eurorack with mother-32

I was pretty hardcore into modular before getting a moog semi triple. I like them. I like them all. I could not do much better in modules (let alone with powered case) for £600 odd. It has some very clear limitations - I was shocked, in my ignorance, to realise that once up and assembled the full mo...

Something that is the “next thing” after eurorack will surely come along some day, that’s the nature of things.

I rate it. I purposefully bought an SQ-1 before the SQ-64 came out, and when a couple of places appeared to be winding down stocking the 1.
