If you look on the back you can probably spot the 6 connected ground pins. Then get your bearing from that diagram in the post above.

Re: BEGINNERS - What have you always found to be poorly explained?

I was very confused with VCAs at the beginning. The "A" stands for "amplifier", which in everyday language, means "to make louder". I was wondering why making something louder was so important. But most VCA's don't make the signal louder at all. I read or heard somewhere someone say that it helps t...

Re: Power Switch module?

I wouldn't want the AC supply up so close to the panel. A quick search turns up some remote control AC power switches. My search for "remote control AC power switch" found one on ebay for $13. These things use a little key fob to activate them. You could probably DIY that onto a blank panel.

Re: It's 1970. You need the smallest simplest circuit to get 4 random bits. Go!

How about a quad of Serge's 3900 based comparator circuit. Cheap and simple but you need to give it an LFO or something and then patch some of the outs to ins to complicate things.

Re: Amp clamp meter to meassure total current draw ?

Those are for A.C. circuits and you have to clamp around one of the conductors, not the whole cable. To measure your plus and minus DC loads you could use most multimeters but you need to insert the meter in the circuit, cutting the wire or otherwise disconnecting it somewhere.

Re: Making a patch malleable

Hard to say but do you have modules you're not using? Can the patch have some alternate parts? Mixers or switches to change the routing.

Very much want to get some online jamming solution. Is there any kind of getting started guide to this? The website leaves me with lots of questions.

Do I need these? "Pro Tools 12,2019,2020 Cubase 9.5-10.5, Ableton Live 9.5/10"

Beginning the search... YouTubes etc.

An audio mixer will be AC coupled. Any DC bias on your euro signal will be ignored - the signal will float to the middle.

Re: How long do you stay patched?

Other than experiments with a few modules I've gradually gotten away from starting with a blank slate. I treat my three row system more like an ordinary, unchanging, instrument. The patch will remain essentially unchanged for months at a time. Sure, I reach for a patch cord now and then but sound so...

Re: So....when does stereo REALLY matter?

I trained in old school studios back in the day (80s) and was taught that a mix needs to have clarity and separation in mono first. You can use stereo to accentuate it, for effects, etc etc, but if you were relying on that for clarity, you had some fundamentals wrong. Things have moved on of course...
