Re: Polivoks Repair in the US?

jealous you have a Polivoks! I used to and stupidly sold it, to someone on here no less! also: I want to say there was something weird when I had one where you had to turn up the headphone input or something to get any sound out of it. I don't remember specifics as it was ten years ago when I got i...

Re: Phish

I would say that I *used* to hate them with a passion. Was introduced to them by an ex girlfriend (not the reason I hated them). At the time, I was very much convinced that all music needed to be made for some kind of "greater purpose", preferred most of it to be generally shouted at me, and liked t...

Re: Euro boxes

If you were in the US you would get them from U-Line. https://www.uline.com/
I don't know where european companies would get similar boxes.

Too bad we're an ocean apart, I have 500? or so in a closet. If we were closer I'd be happy to give you a few.

Re: How many modules outside your rack?

It's actually quite embarrassing. I have my main case which is 3 rows of 104hp, but I also currently have a 3 row doepfer case, a 4 row homemade case and 2 row makenoise case all sitting in a closet and serving as "overflow" right now. To be fair, a lot of it is diy stuff, and it just tends to add u...

Re: [BACK AGAIN] Eurorack: Haible Living VCOs by R*S

The transistor situation is very confusing on these boards. If you're using the BCMs on the bottom side, you're not using Q8 then, correct? I believe that QSSM and QM are also to be skipped if you're using through hole Q4 & Q5, and skip Q9 if you're using through hole for Q7. I would imagine having...

I have not built the 227, but I have flashed a bunch of attiny’s. I have done it successfully from both another arduino and from a stlink programmer.

What do I do with 500 jacks with a pcb footprint I never use?

They are 3.5mm mono. So ok for euro. But horizontal mount, so not really a format I'd usually use. Design something new that just uses those jacks? A really big matrix mixer? Give them away? Ebay? 500 isn't enough to design a new commercial thing around, and it's too many to design something for per...

Re: Plugged it in backwards :/

No, if they appear to be working properly they likely are. A manufacturer as large as Makenoise almost undoubtedly has some type of reverse power protection on their modules, so it would be very unlikely that they would have been damaged just from being plugged in backwards. Solder joints don't get ...

So the shortish answer is to get something like an arduino and start experimenting.

The longer answer will involve a lot of personal opinion because t...

in nearly every regard except the filter, the Prophet 6 and OB-6 are essentially the same synth. They've the same 'gubbins' and 'brains' as it were but the voice cards differ, including the oscillators not just the filters, and the OB6 has some additional fx algorithms but sure, they're certainly n...

I always get confused by the DSI line. It seems you have the Prophet stuff, the OB-6, but then every thing feels kind of like variations on the same things, I don't understand the market for that. Clearly they are doing something that works, but.. I think thats a pretty fair assessment about the ol...

The Cirklon, however, IMO has a great song mode. It also has fills, which I don't think the Vector has. And one big plus for the Cirklon to me is the ability to very speficially punch in retrigs with increasing or decreasing velocity or note value, etc to create nice rolls. This is a critical featu...
