Annoying videos

I’ve got two gripes. 1. Does anybody else get annoyed when watching a demonstration video and the presenter, out of pure perversity, refuses to turn the knob that would clearly make the coolest sound in the observable universe? 2. Over modulation. There are settings on that knob BETWEEN 1 and 10. I ...

Re: Color Coordinating Cables?

I grab whatever is handy from the snake’s nest on the couch and patch away. I don’t think I have enough of any color to code them. I’m clearly in the minority around here.

Re: Creating a minimal viable product

Each filter has its own character and there are a billion of them.
If I had to choose one at a reasonable price-point, I’d say Joranalogue Filter 8.

Re: Top 5 modules?

I’ve been feeding the inputs on Compare 2 with two out-of-phase sine waves from a quad lfo to generate various trigger and gates for indiscriminate use all over the place. I’ve been using the generated triggers to clock my Chronoblob and Marbles, while also using a sequential switch to change output...

Re: Cwejman in 2020.

Big City has more Cwejman in stock than I’ve seen in a long time. They have AP-1mk2, SC-VC, SM-1, MMF-1S, VCO-2RM. I got a VCO-2RM even though a new oscillator is not at the top of my list because it will be a while till I see one again, and resale wouldn’t be a problem. Don’t think I’ll be selling ...

Re: Patching Between Cases

Got to say that I patch several cases together regularly and never have much of a problem. Being a guitar player, the noise from my Eurorack is never anywhere near the noise that comes from a tube guitar amp. I think it’s important to decide if you want audiophile silence, or if you’ll be satisfied ...

Re: Ugliest module, best looking one !

NE modules aren’t the most attractive, but the messy aesthetic fits with their aesthetic, and it’s immediately recognizable in a rack. It would depress me if it changed to something slick. Odd design is part of the look for eurorack mfg’s of olde.

Re: Experiences ordering from Folktek website?

I’m not sure. I fired it up one day and it’s like the module was getting no power. No lights no nothing. It almost seems like the power connector fritzed out, but I wasn’t watching it when it came on so I don’t know if it flashed or anything. There was no magic smoke though. Later I tried it in my D...

Re: "paradigm shift" modules from your experience

I just got a Joranalogue Compare 2 and comparators are amazing. All lfo’s can be synced! Plus you can do 10 billion things with a simple triangle. I’m still learning it but it promises to be a very powerful module.

Re: Modules that FEEL good

I like the sturdy, black, metal knobs on NE and Casper modules, but if there is any light at all the glare makes the indicator impossible to see.

Re: Filter Output Mixing Tricks

You might look at the manual for Schippmann’s VCF-02. It has many examples of filters combined to make other filters.

Re: Heisenberg Generator Plan B Model 24

I’m pretty sure the Plan B Heisenberg is long out of production. G iven the number of difficulties w/ Plan B designs you might be better off looking for something else. Many good modules are suggested above.

Re: VERBOS ELECTRONICS

Sometimes with Verbos, modules with their many envelope followers and outputs, it feels like I’m tending a fire that’s about to go out. Especially with the Multi-Delay. Often the envelopes would stop or stay at max if I were to walk away, but if I just keep the knobs in motion, and monitor the situa...

Re: Best random generator for musical phrases

I like to play my guitar against random Marbles scales. I think I do things on the guitar that I wouldn’t otherwise do. It’s fun to pretend like the synth is alive and expand on the fucked up things it does.
