Re: Furman power conditioner

follow up... if it's ground loops from other connected equipment on your power strip, the isobar6 should do the trick, but it does not isolate from the wall socket. If you electrical is noisy and you need to remove common node noise, the LC1800 has an isolation transformer between the socket AC and ...

Re: Furman power conditioner

You know, I am not positive the LC1800 has transformer isolated power outlets (I recall it does, but looking at the spec sheet I don't see it now)... However it was the first tripp lite I used before upgrading to the ISO1000 and the LC1800 did vastly improve my S/N (old NYC apartment building electr...

Re: Furman power conditioner

If you have ground loop issues that you can't fix with proper wiring, you need something with isolated power outlets. The furman you linked to does not have that. I can't comment on the entire furman product line, but most of them are glorified power strips (useful, but won't really ameliorate a bad...

Re: What do I need to use a Vermona Perfourmer?

The moog matriarch wouldn't be a bad alternative to the performer and it has the built in sequencer. You could add a perfourmer later as an "expander" that'd be pretty sweet.

Re: Simple recording solution?

It depends on how much you like your mixer. I always recommend the soundcraft ui24r. I've demoted my analog mixers to sidecar / specialized duties and have everything setup with 2 of these. Each has 24 inputs. 24 track multracking. stereomix down. you can record multi and mixdown simultaneously. It ...

If being "a man" means having a large account, but Make Noise is among the boys, then that seems to imply that all eurorack manufacturers are blips in the electronics supply chain.
They are all bleep bloops in the supply chain.

Re: Which Mixer to get?

The best mixer I have for realtime live mixing and playing like an instrument is far from the best in sound quality. It's the 6 input mixer on an old Tascam Porta Two Ministudio. It's the compact layout with big, around 1", round rubber caps on the pots and the finger indentations on the sliders an...

Re: Gear you own multiples of.

Lot of great responses here, curious if those who have multiple 303 style boxes actually use them simultaneously. Seems like a narrow range of sounds and it could be difficult to get them sitting in the mix together. Do you do a polyphonic thing or is this about the workflow? Perhaps separate effec...

Re: Vermona DRM-1 MKIII in the year 2020

IMO maintaining gates as just gates is the sensible choice. It's how most other gear works. I'd rather see an additional CV input for velocity instead of having a variable gate. Single level triggers maybe be how modular typically works, but it's not how drum brains have typically worked, at least ...

Re: Gear you own multiples of.

I've managed to cull nearly all my multiples. Only strict double is 2 x akai s612.
I also have both a grendel ra-9 and ra-99 but they are actually very different synths, theymake more of a set.

If the matrix has been buffered it may be possible to inject into the matrix but signals may be inverted.
The matrix better not be buffered. What's the point otherwise?

For your purpose (assuming you are recording into a computer or some kind of digital device where you can mix) you would be better investing not in a mixer, but a few high end preamps.

For bass the V-Moda M100 Crossfade are great (+10 dB). Also super comfortable and really well built. They do have another hi Q boost around 11kHz which is perfect for DJing (for mixing on hi-hat transients) but I don't find it harsh. I got the V-modas to replace a pair of sony 650bt.
