Re: Supercell: expanded version of Clouds + Superparasites firmware

....It's likely more like $400 considering the generous estimations and giving 60% off street. That is more than any consumer pays for any current Mutable Instrument product. ...Keep funding this dude and he will be the next Uli. Word. The boutique pricing of the 1979 Mutable stuff is absurd (and p...

Re: Grayscale Mutable clones aren’t open source anymore?

If you do right by someone only after your ass gets dragged all over social media, does it count? Asking for a friend The notion that Emilie went back on some kind of deal with Grayscale, or that Grayscale wasn't given the courtesy of time to respond, is a bit ridiculous.

Re: Supercell: expanded version of Clouds + Superparasites firmware

You're probably right. The upside of doing these adaptations might not be worth the downsides. Maybe I should put my energy elsewhere. I've simply inherited all the problems around cloning and trademark infringement that Mutable has had to deal with. Might not be worth it. That's exactly right.Your...

Re: Supercell: expanded version of Clouds + Superparasites firmware

Oh that's right, this: I'm not putting in the hours just to give the cloners free hardware to sell at "built in the spare bedroom" prices. Dude, if you can't deal with the fallout of releasing your products through an open source license, maybe try not borrowing open source material for your designs?

Re: Supercell: expanded version of Clouds + Superparasites firmware

Hmm, maybe you should check the date on those words and stop pretending that changing one's mind is impossible. How ironic that Greyscale honored the spirit of Mutable license until it became inconvenient to do so. And also stop pretending that I never published any source files – I did, until rece...

Re: Filter Recommendations

just my opinion but I buy DIY kits all the time. they range from $20 for a pcb + panel to $150 for a complete kits with everything you described. maybe $180 would be normal for MOTM with a rare $50 IC. so if we factor all that out. that is $130 for the complete MOTM kit of any module pick one. my p...

Re: Reducing Depth of Strom Power Module

Unless there’s something I’m not seeing, it looks like you could replace the electrolytic caps with low profile electrolytics and get some shorter standoffs. I don’t know what’s up with those big gaps between the connectors.

Re: Filters that do not cut the bass when you turn up the res

All state variable filters This is one of the reason the classic Moog filter always sounded so "phat". The transistor ladder topology, when done correctly, attenuates the bass less than the others. Many LP filter topologies almost turn into asymmetrical bandpass filters when the resonance is turned ...

Re: Serge SSG: How to wire cycle switches? for both halves

And if I understand you correctly, in Eurorack format I could use the third leg of the in and cycle jacks (disconnected when a cable is plugged) to replace the switch ?? Yes, you could have the CYCLE output normalled to the IN jack, so that it will cycle by default. Plugging something into the IN j...

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

How much of an issue is that in practice vs. theory? It seemed like a straw man argument. I guess if the ZPO isn't really doing TZFM or sounding like TZFM then it's not a point of comparison.

Re: Intellijel Rubicon 2 vs SSF Zero Point Oscillator

This thread is funny. I remember a thread comparing the ZPO to Generate 3 a few months back where the morph feature was given the same treatment. I haven't watched them all but I don't really hear the kinds of TZ sounds I'm familiar with in the demos. TZFM is very of the moment, and it does seems po...

Re: Picking a Function Generator

My take is a function generator is a function generator is a function generator. What distinguishes each is the additional functionality. With Maths it's a mixer. PEG has clock dividers. Rampage has logic outputs. The choice will come down to how well those additional features gel with the module's...

Re: CS80 type filter that's smaller than the Studio Electronics one

The Old Crow CS-80 MK2 filter is pretty much the same circuit as the one in Deckard's Dream / Voice, and I *think* the mk1 was the MOTM-480. Not small, but you could make your own from the schematics.

Re: VCOs with Odd/Even/Fundamental outputs?

It can be done a number of ways. I personally don't like the fact that G3's outputs are (almost) all at different frequencies. If I were trying to reproduce that functionality I would probably use a triangle core because it gives the square wave output for free, and getting both the harmonic and sta...

Re: VCOs with Odd/Even/Fundamental outputs?

The odd output is simple. The fundamental is subtracted from a square wave, all you need is a differential amplifier. You can also use a voltage processor to get this waveform from your current VCOs. The double frequency saw wave is a little more involved. I'll see if I can find the circuit I have f...
