Re: [IC] Surges Tabula Rasa Wavetable Osc for Frac

perhaps my Euro panel design can be of inspiration to others.

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.

Re: Frac envelope generators

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...

Re: "Antivocoder": does it exist ? ( a spectral "ducking" device ;) )

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...

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...

Having been a long term user of bantam connectors, I will remind you to make spare cables as they don't go on forever!

Re: The 2020 Show Us Your DIY Builds Thread!

This is a dual comparator triggered sample & hold circuit. I initially hadn't realized there were two channels on one PCB, so I used a recycled panel to expand the unit forcing a different interface layout and different jacks for the second channel. 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.

It seems, though, that the Env.F jack is an input jack, not an output jack, correct? If it going through a normalled jack, it is to allow replacing the signal for purposes of adjusting the frequency, correct? No, the Envelope Follower jack is an Output which is scaled and offset by the attenuverter...

with the envelope follower... are people tapping that (at IC8 pin 9) as an output, or just setting it up to use an external envelope (via a switched jack)?
