Re: STG Soundlabs Oscillator

No new news at this time, but also I haven’t requested an update for a while... I know Knobcon is in some sort of weird non-cancelled holding pattern, so I’d imagine that whatever is happening there is occupying most of Suit’s bandwidth at the moment.

Re: STG Soundlabs Oscillator

I'll second kindredlost - Suit will deliver the product for sure. I have a bank of 4 on order in 3u. I try to not set any firm expectations as to when an STG preorder product will be shipped. The wait time for preorder to production for the envelope generator was also long - longer than this, so I a...

Re: Bread and Butter Analog Oscillators in 2020

As a belated follow up, I have the DPO and STO combination, but I don't consider this a 'matched set' of analog bread-n-butter (does anyone else think of pickles when they type this?) oscillators; this are 3 very different oscillators, analog and quirky but certainly not matched. This is most eviden...

Re: Bread and Butter Analog Oscillators in 2020

When I think bread-and-butter analog I typically think of either a Dopefer A110 or MN STO, both mentioned above. WMD/SSF Spectrum is a great contender for the king of this category due to the tracking range alone, but I've never owned one. I've kept the STO because I enjoy the sound; both A110 and a...

Re: Modulation to Voice Ratio....

Yeah thanks! That looks great. I don’t DIY but even built is a good deal. Like the footprint as well. Would probably play really nice next to my MISO. I really like this idea rather than spending a bunch on more modulation specific modules. I have to agree with the concept of processing modulation ...

Re: WMD Sequential Switch Matrix - anything better?

Question I hope someone can clear up. I want some sort of matrix like this to set up “presets” so I can route different signals through the system to act as a controller for live performances where each “preset” is a different song or musical idea. When routing an input to multiple outputs, does th...

Re: Fixed Filter Banks - Long-term use, same-y results?

I'm also considering 'the right' fixed filter bank for me, so this modern thread is interesting. I've got a rxmx + fxdf combo, and can't recommend it enough. Not a lot of bands, and as mentioned above, it likes to do 'its thing'. Fantastic sound though! The fxdf sounds really great. The Verbos Bark ...

I always like more switching/crossfading/hub type modules in 1u.

Final output audio mixer solution with stereo and mono ins, stereo output and headphone output. there's a few ways to patch this up, but something 'premade' like 4-5 tiles wide would be great.

I don't know about the whole snobs part, but I just don't see why any modular sequencer should be limited to just just CV/gate in 2018. These are the types of signals in the modular world - CV (continuous voltage 0-10v), Gate (event trigger that stays high for the duration of the step/press), trigg...

Re: It's 2018... is it too much to ask for CV/Gate AND veloc

All of those sequencers you mentioned are capable of velocity CV. The simple way to do it is have two VCAs in series, one controlled by an envelope an one controlled by velocity CV. This is the complete answer to this problem. I'm not sure how a standalone step sequencer would even implement "veloc...
