Re: Has anybody got an unchanging Euro modular?

Been a year since I dropped the Quad Octoginta II in and I love this dedicated portable setup! https://www.millionmachinemarch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/mseurocasecloseup3.jpg https://www.millionmachinemarch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/mseurocase4.jpg That looks great - do you have any soun...

Re: Check out my rack!

I'm not opposed to an oscillator though- any pairings you recommend, anything think would sound good with the hoopla in my rack? A Loquelic Iteritas is another interesting digital oscillator, but the Synthesis Technology oscillator would be great here I think. I guess you have to decide if you real...

Has anybody got an unchanging Euro modular?

Seems unlikely but is there anyone with a stable Eurorack setup from multiple manufacturers that they like to make music with who hasn’t changed/swapped/added to/sold bits for a long while? Mine is always changing a little, seems the nature of the beast. We see lots of modular grid ‘fantasy racks’ b...

Re: What sparked your entry into eurorack?

Buying an MC202 modded with loads of minijacks at the same time as starting a reasonable well paid job.

‘I’ll just get some euro to play with my 202, thats all’
‘Those EMS synthi modules look nice....’

Yeah, right.

Why do you want to send single cycle waveforms from Ableton instead of buying an oscillator for your rack? Would be much more flexible

Re: Recording Modular Music: How do you do it?

Soundcraft MTK12

Though all the multitracks are pre fader, so you lose your balance and EQ (unless you are 100% happy with the stereo mix you did) which sometimes is hard to restore

Re: "Downsizing"

I’ve deliberately removed Maths from my rack, just to see what its like. I’m not missing it enough to put it back yet. I sold a Cwejman oscillator and a Verbos Random. I’m not missing them either, I just make different sounds without them. I did have some overlapping features in my modules. I’m tryi...

Re: How Do I Choose A New Interface?

no personal experience but the criticism levelled at Antelope by someone I respect working professionally is that their drivers are picky, slow to arrive and not so stable. if you need all those ins and outs it might be a good choice but do your homework is all I would say.

Re: Behringer 2600

If they had to use a digital reverb, how about a DSP running a convolution reverb using impulses with the original 2600 spring reverb, and a push button to cycle through some other spring reverbs, and a few classic plate reverbs while they were at it? Sounds costly to develop, at least in Behringer...

Re: Starter Setup ?

Sorry I didn’t fully explain my thought. A used 19 inch multi fx unit costs less than 100 of whatever currency. Not sure you can get a useful euro module for that, and case space costs too.

Re: Starter Setup ?

Unless you really really have to have FX in your case there are much better sounding, cheaper and easier to use options on the used rackmount market. Most people prefer plug ins in these days the wider music market

Re: How are you guys going into your AD converter?

Straight from vca or manhattan analogue mixer module into a Soundcraft MTK12 which gives me up to 12 multitrack ins and a stereo mix to the computer via USB

Mixer is fine with that level

Re: V/Oct to V/Hertz interface box or in-synth mods... interest?

Harevestman English Tear already exists in euro, and a good number of modern sequencers will let you choose which coltage standard to output so the market for this will be smaller than in the recent past.

Nice work! I have a few HZ/V synths and a 2 channel standalone might appeal around £150

Re: So I finally pulled the trigger - what next?

I’ve never done rhythm sequencing in modular, I can see the appeal but for the music I make I prefer the MPC or DAW environment for sampled drums. Synthesized drums don’t appeal so much in euro, I’d rather have a separate drum machine for that. For me it was one way to contain euro from getting to b...

Re: some questions from a modular synth noob

I would stay away from any DIY built stuff initially if you are starting out and don't know how it all works. Getting confused because you don't understand fully functioning modules is fine, doing it because it you don't have the experience to know it isn't quite working right will drive you mad.
