Re: Small standalone effects box?

Korg NTS-1. Cheap, tiny, sounds great. Plus you get a free synth with the effects. Only downside is a single 1/8" stereo out.

Re: Looking for a synth

If you’re looking at the MinilogXD, why not the Prologue? 8 or 16 voices, half(ish) the price of the Prophet, and flexible with the SDK.

Re: Effects and Semi-Modular

Are you planning on modulating your effects? Something simple and cheap for end of chain effects would free up more space for things that augment the Minibrute. Like a Korg NTS-1: https://www.korg.com/us/products/dj/nts_1/ Or go whole hog and get a Zoia: https://empresseffects.com/products/zoia As m...

Re: Expanding M32

You’ll want a buffered mult to keep the STO in tune with the M32.

Re: Wavefolding and Harmonic Based Rig

I can’t answer your complex oscillator question, you’re going to have to make that decision on your own.

Re: Module recommendations

Here’s what I have paired with a 0-Coast: https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/66457 I originally intended to use the pair standalone (and wanted to keep the Make Noise theme), which is why there’s an Erbe-Verb—it mostly acts as an end of chain reverb. Which is a waste. I should pull it and repl...

Re: Doepfer PSU3 5V problems (and more?)

I got a response from Doepfer, which was solder on a new IMS-20-5 (I looked at the 5V fuse and as far as I could tell it was intact). Would the 5V LED blink with a blown fuse, or just be dark?

Re: Doepfer PSU3 5V problems (and more?)

Whelp, after having an LC9 with a Doepfer PSU2 and constantly running out of power, I decided to bite the bullet and swap it with the PSU3 in my base case.

Re: New gear from Moog, what would you like to see happen.?

I’d like to see (along with a few others) an analog multi-effect in the M32/DFAM form factor. Use the guts of the ’foogers to add filtering, delay, phasing, chorus/flanging, distortion, even something weird like the MIDI Murf and Freqbox (which could also act as a 2nd oscillator the the mother).

One of the new Noise Engineering distortions? Many flavors, and the two newest have EQ or a filter bolted on to tame the crazy.

Don’t forget that VCAs are also extremely useful for attenuating CV, and a filter is going to be less useful for that. Good point! About half of my filters are DC coupled (can't remember which ones). An AC coupled filter is quite useless for CV but a DC one it actually quite handy. It will slew the...

In terms of VCA's, not really sure how I could utilise them in this set up? Probably just the way I approach patchin though. Any specific examples of how I could use them? (Disting has a VCA so could try this out before committing). Thanks. VCAs allow you to modulate the modulator. i.e. use an enve...

Thank you. Makes sense but just didn’t match my mental model of what’s going on. What’s the best way to contribute—just start commenting on GitHub? I can’t program DSP but I can do interface & graphic design—including extracting SVGs from the Mutable Instruments Illustrator files for panel designs.

Use the gate out? I'm not sure what you mean by trigger, reverse trigger, or continuous - are we talking about the same thing?

Given that the Mother-32 only has one oscillator, you’re not going to be able to detune or get any beating/chorusing. So I’d go for the Vermona.
