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...

1. Yes, I had a VCO2RM and still have a RES4 and S1 MK2 2. The VCO2RM was sold to fund the S1 when my turn came on the waiting list.

Re: Check out 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...

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.

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

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.

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: 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...
