Re: Patching the modular in semi permanent way?

I record mostly everything I do on the 9U modular, and use the sounds in DAW based compositions and tracks I release. I tear down once I’ve recorded and feel I’ve exhausted the current patch. It rarely takes more than 15 mins to develop an interesting starting point for a new patch with 9U. What is ...

Re: Cwejman owners, current or past

Differences between Cwejman construction and some cheaper modules: The back is a PCB with little or no metal exposed, protecting the components from accidental damage or short circuits from stray things in cases. Minijack sockets (same as Orthogonal devices) are very solid and do not have any flex o...

Re: Sequencing doubt: programmed, improvised or both?

I don’t know enough about your chosen sequencers but the general concept of a programmable sequencer + small and simple sequencer’s CV output combined with a precision adder will give you repeatability with controlled and/or randomised variation. If you haven’t seen it, there’s a video by Mylar melo...

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’

Yeah, right.

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: 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.
