Re: What is the critical mass of a synthesizer?

I think the idea of "instrument" is barking up an old tree. What these various collections of modules are is a different state of mind and space of creation. All the back and forth about the # of modules, big and small, etc, etc, etc and one more, etc are moot. One has to forget about "instruments,"...

I bought one new in 1980–they were $2000. I sold it for 1800 about 10 years later FWIW. Club of Knobs came out with one recently derived from this model but with additional possibilities...

272e_antenna question

My studio is in a basement where its very difficult to pickup signals. If i extend the wires (about 100 ft), what would be the best gauge wire to use and/or method to do that? Any other suggestions welcome...

TIA,

One thing to be aware of is that there can be significant differences of latency depending on which modules you are going through with the mic. If they are all analog you’ll probably be fine...

Modcan/cynthia/barton A manuals

The Modcan manuals are easily available, unfortunately the cynthia (Modcan) A module manuals use to be available at the cyndustries website but that no longer exists (that I know of). Does anyone here know where to find them or perhaps have some? Thanks :nana:

New electroacoustic modular track! Plaits, Mangrove, DPO, Una Corda and my old cello. Gritty and sweet.
Beautiful work, lots of subtle things happening but still maintains its structure.

If I have an FH-1, an FH-2 and an FX, is it possible to hook them all up together? Which one does the FX-1 go to or does it matter? and since I use the USB 3 input on the FH-2 for the FH-1, if its connected then how do you configure FH-2 at the same time?

Thanks!

Another possibility is to just forget that this is about making "music." Instead focus on the idea that you are constructing/sculpting electricity over time. No notes, no quantizers, no stupid drums, no drones, no ambient, no sequencers etc. There are literally infinite possibilities but most users ...

Channel expander problem

Hi, I've had the mixer, mutes and channel expander all working. I just reconfigured my layout and now the expander panning doesn't work. The level works but if I bring it up real slow there is a slight distortion at the beginning. I've tried disconnecting the mutes to isolate but to no avail. Do you...
