Re: Simple DI box question

Thank you :tu: Yes connecting directly to the line inputs works. No need for the DI box. And yes, it is probably not the highest quality mixer, but I haven't found a similar small 12 channel rack mixer with inserts on most channels. So far I'm living with its limitations. Internal effects are actual...

Re: Simple DI box question

I should perhaps add the the DI box is just beneath the mixer in a rack and the XLR cables connecting the DI box output to the mixer is very short (50 cm). Perhaps another indication, that the DI box is overkill?

Simple DI box question

OK this is a simple question (and might all ready have been answered :hmm: ). Actually three questions. I dicided to try a DI box for converting unbalanced outputs from my modular to balanced to the mixer. Question 1: Is is overkill? The modular is next to the mixer. The mixer (rack mixer, Behringer...

Re: Need a boring module - cv shifter

I got a 110 U system (plus a 8U table top and a 8U rack) if that is considered large ;) However, I don't have the big need for attenuating and offsetting as most of my modules are well behaved: VCO and LFO from dotcom and Corsynth is -5 to 5 V, so is my noise and sample & hold (dotcom) and envelopes...

Re: Need a boring module - cv shifter

Quad CV shifter - you mean 4 units that all can attenuate and shift (add offset), so your bipolar +/- 10V signal to unipolar 0-5 V (or 0-10 V). Not sure it exists. stg soundlabs active attenuator, http://www.stgsoundlabs.com/products/attenuators_mu.htm , will be able to add 5V and then attenuate. A ...

Re: Dave Smith hints at Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4/Prophet 10

The vintage knob has several axis of param interactions that it affects. It was empirically set up after we found a general algorithm so basically ‘hand tuned’ to make sure it sounded good across the entire range. Part of what appeals to the ear is not quite knowing what is going on, a subtle level...

Re: Dave Smith hint of a new synth coming up in August

Just :wow: I would like to hear demoes of how the vintage knob gives character. It could be really cool and be adding the imperfections many of the new poly synth miss.
Oh ... and the look :loves:

I just bought an OB-6, so that should guarantee they announce the OB-12 next week. Unlikely.

Re: Dave Smith hint of a new synth coming up in August

My guess: A multitimbral synth reminiscent (probably in a very vague sense) of the Sixtrack. Why? Dave Smith often finds inspirations in his old creations (but never clone, so I don't believe we will ever see a Prophet-5 og Pro One re-issue from DSI/Sequential). The Sixtrack was the first multi timb...

Good topic Putte ! Agree :tu: My top 3: 1. Sequential switch (I have 3 Q962 from dotcom and a Moon 564). I never though I would use them as much as I do and for so many different thing.

drilling hole for rack mount

I recently bought a rack case for MU from Moon. Including two 530 delays :banana: But it seems like the holes are located a little further from top and bottom on the Moon panel than other panels (tried with Corsynth an dotcom panels, and are also going to mount some SSL panels when received). So I c...

Without having dwelled into the details, it seems like the 3dPd is in family with the Nord Modular and the Korg MS20ic Legacy controller. Like the MS20ic it is patchable. And like the Nord Modular it is a stand alone instrument that doesn't need software to play. Well it does, but it is hidden in th...
