Re: 500 Series: Compressors and EQ’s for Electronic Music Production

I have a 4 space Heritage Audio OST-4 case. It works fine with the single Hairball Audio Bronze Preamp that I have in it, but it seems like Heritage Audio forgot to tap the screw holes for the bottom side. Annoying flaw for QA to miss. I love the Hairball Bronze preamp for color & character. When I ...

Is it normal for the right half to be stuck in ScaleDuet when not using apps that use up both halves?

Down button doesn't make a box around the right half...
Fixed it. It was just a bad solder joint. ^_^

Re: Output based on the rate of change in the input voltage?

Interesting thread.

There is a (video rate) differentiator available from LZX (Sandin IP series).

I ought to try it processing voltages from the Sensory Translator / Audio Frequency Decoder (spectral envelope followers).

is very portable,
and well paired with a Kilpatrick Phenol.

Re: Hybrid Case?

Yeah, I mix Frac & Euro.
Most of them are in separate cases,
but I do have one sequencing cabinet that includes a row of each.
The Frac row is using an old Blacet PSU,
and the Euro row is using an old TipTop powered busboard.

Btw... something like DUSG or Maths in frac format would b amazing. There used to be Bananalogue VCS in Frac. Some folks have DIY slopes from CGS. While the Blacet EG1 doesn't have the amplitude following aspect, it is has plenty of features to make up for it. I reckon the same is true with TEM (pe...

what do you mean opposite direction? switch carrier and modulator inputs?? describe the function blocks. I assume your desired algorithm would include: - bandpass filters to divide the input spectrally - amplitude followers on the outputs of each bandpass filter ... - modulating VCAs (inverse CV for...

Does anyone have a Frac format .fpd of the Living VCOs? I managed to get hold of a PCB, it would be good to get some layout ideas before starting to build up the PCB. No, but these old pics might help with inspiration. I'm in the same boat. JH_LivingVCOs_Frac.jpg JH_LivingVCOs_Frac.jpg JH_LivingVCO...

Re: 4u Bantam format considerations

I do think users benefit from uniform connectors when patching. I guess Buchla users might differ on that. Yes, I meant primarily gates and triggers. It's interesting that you bring up higher frequency. I use a mostly LZX video synth as well as audio stuff. I've seen some people build the cadet seri...

Both channels are fully functional the first time ...

Re: Multi-channel / frequency Envelope Follower?

The older LZX Audio Frequency Decoder might do the trick.
The feature set is a little different from the newer Sensory Translator.

The Analysis section of the Doepfer Vocoder module set would be another option.

Re: Transducer to piezo FX/distortion question.

I made a speaker out of a transducer and an aluminum resonator guitar cone.

At some point I will try rerecording some sounds played through it.

Amp Level and EQ are important.
