Re: Have You Had to Replace Any Panel Pots, Jacks, Switches and LEDs in Your FracRack?

The only component I have ever had to replace in decades of Frac usage is a jack on a SuperVCA (the one on the little daughtercard) that I fucked up all by myself during construction. I replaced the daughtercard with a set of flying wires and the module doesn't care or know the difference. All of my...

Re: Clock Dividers. Essential Range and Divisors?

Oh! For my purposes: 2-12 inclusive, 16, 24, 32, 48, 60, 64.

I always thought prime divisors would be awesome, but in reality, 2/3/5/7/11 are the only ones I ever needed.

Re: Clock Dividers. Essential Range and Divisors?

Oh, yeah. Is this the part where I mention that pretty much every VCS/281/Envelator type AD/R envelope can be used as a divider? By design the A stage *always* finishes, but the D will re-trigger. So you can feed in a clock, set decay to 0 (or use the End/Square output if your version of the circuit...

Re: Clock Dividers. Essential Range and Divisors?

I use my Blacet Binary Zones exclusively as dividers, not for pitch or other stepped CV reasons. Turning a 16th note clock input into a four bar 50% duty cycle pulse wave to flip a crossfader or switch is a vital compositional tool! Or slew the output for a rock solid synced and clocked LFO. Plus yo...

Quadrone, the Subsequent (Wiard 300)

Here is part 2 of the modular jam I performed for some pals as part of a 30 hour streaming psychonaut freakout. This bit, 38 minutes, went on at 4am. It starts kind of slow but is rolling by the 10 minute mark. Pretty much exclusively Wiard 300 modular except for the dual Zeroscillator and the Orgon...

Re: Pick 6?

I would double the size of my case and get 12! Seriously, I would. Um, did. Have.

Keep all 8. You can use the Borg as two LFOs and two VCAs. The Bug is your clock source in addition to everything else it can do to liven up your patches.

If I *insist* that every voice have at least one envelope, a VCA, and a sequencing source, and all voices have a filter of some kind, no West-ish complex osc no-filter voices, then...15. I would need to take over every input on the patch bay to sum all those voices to the main studio mixer, but it's...
