Re: Eurorack Power Link

I am thinking of using a 3 pin CB microphone connector to link the cases together
If you mean “Philmore” connectors, yes that’s an option. I’d get the 4 pin version and double up the ground. I’ve used them without any problems, typically just long enough to go from floor to table top.

Re: Unreleased Richter Designs - Pulse Farm

Interested but would like to clarify some basics. I’d prefer to build it as frac with bananas. You mentioned depth. Looks like one pcb so what’s the concern? Thanks for reviving this thing.

Haven't seen any news on this in awhile Ditto.

Re: Hard Case for 2-Frame - suggestions?

I'm using an SKB case. Outside: 22" x 18.5" x 8.5" Inside: 20.5" x 15.5" x 7.44" I just turn the frac 90 degrees, leaving things patched, lower that and the euro into the box and pack odds and ends around them. A thin piece of plywood on top for more accessories and cables. That and a powered speake...

Re: Signal flow for live modular performance

Answers 1. Either way, though reverb at the end is pretty common. Overuse of reverb is very common. 2. Strictly speaking, there has to be some impact but it’s not enough to matter. Try stuff. See what you like. I generally apply each effect to a specific source but I’ll also varying amounts of sever...

Re: Does Serge make sense for Noob?

Does Serge make any sense for a newbie? My uninformed impression is that compared to eurorack, the Serge modules tend to be more "pure", more expensive and more versatile. What are some of the other differences, especially in terms of sound? Those qualities are well addressed by earlier posts in th...

Re: FX AID - multi audio effect module

If somebody wants to use FX AID 100% wet all the time, I can make the custom boost for the wet level.
Good to know. That would be pretty common ask for applications where module is between mixer aux bus and effect return.

Re: FX AID - multi audio effect module

Is there a demo of Reverb Spring?
Would it pass for a real spring reverb used in a moderate way (not crashing things around).

...they might as well be different formats due to module depth and connector issues. I'd say that's not really a concern. The Bugbrand gear is way less deep than Blacet modules so that wouldn't be a problem and Tom gladly provides power cables with frac's MTA-156 plug on one end and his MTA-100 on ...

Yes, I really should do this. I tend to use some non-Bugbrand gear for utilities and some of the effects. I guess that will be alright.
