think about it this way. Cv inputs are built to handle 10-12v in either direction and oscillators tend to be about 5v in either direction. if you combine gates that are in the 10-12v range you can damage things and is why you shouldn't use mults and stackables to mix gate signals and should use a lo...

That was a separate visit to STG soundlabs.

Everyone loves the Megaohm stuff. It's so damn good. I only have the MA20 filter and it gets used all the time. It LOVEs being pushed and ends up making the most amazing tones when pushed with lots of audio rate modulation. I love how you have your performance case set up with the dual joysticks. Th...

also, are there depth limitations with your box? All of the synthcube diy is parallel mount, and I think nothing but the blacet time machine is deeper than 3.5/4" and most, less. As for power, you can get busboards from STG Soundlabs and Lowgain and I'm sure Oakley as well (i've never ordered them t...

For a small system, I'd highly recommend the manhattan analog MVP as it'll knock out lots of utility in a 2MU module (2.125" = 1MU), and the dual mirror core would be REALLY fun to base a small system around because you can use them as really beefy standard oscillators but get some deeper exploratio...

It's great to see people be honest about this one. Id love to see the historical stuff get covered because of Bobs importance and the people who were inspired by his tools.

One way to expand the octatrack to make it more mpc like is make a sample chain, hook up a pad controller and play those slices. It allows you to put like 64 samples in one "track" and use a korg pad kontrol ($100 upgrade)or whatever and still get that funk. Run it into a neighbor track and loop tha...

run a regular trigger sequence into the signal part of a sample and hold and the clock into the clock input of the s&h. It'd do some interesting things very simply. The varigate also looks really cool with it's probability modes. It'd be super rad on snare and highhats, imo.

another sequencer option is the STG soundlabs stuff. YOu build a mega sequencer a module at a time so you don't have to buy it all at once and can assemble the configuration that suits your style the best. I love the 960 but having mutliple smaller sequencers that run at different rates with differe...

I'd make sure to include either an SSL Seguencer or the J3rk/stroh dual splicer. if you want analog oscillators, the dual 258j has a morphable waveform as well.

the dual mirror core actually is available from synthcube if you want a MU version. I'm almost finally done with mine and cant wait. This module looks kind of like the middle section of the dual mirror core, with a little twist.

Re: CGS144 DUSG for dotcom/MU, panel by caleb

Since MU doesn't have the option of stackable cables, it's a switch that allows you to go between EG and LFO operation by wiring the end out to the trig input. It should be a two position switch to send or interrupt the end-trig signal path. we have full kits now, and will be listing the panels and ...

I've used stg in MU and euro and think it sounds basically the same in both formats.

I really loved the tiptop analog oscillator and I found the SSF/WMD colaboration stuff ...

if you want to pitch shift samples, turn off time stretch if you're after ultimate quality. It's the time stretching, IMO that destroys sample manipulation and that's not always what you want.
