If you have some kind of pedal interface and a DC mixer/offset generator you can make a great VCO sync effect with these two (a Moog CP-251 will do). Run the TM-5 into a CV input on the TM-3. Add a small negative offset to the pedal CV so the VCO shuts off when your heel is down. Pressing your toe down will sweep through locked harmonics. This effect is perfect for bass guitar.

Awesome! Thank you!

Any suggestions for a CV pedal? I've been looking at the Moog MP 201, but wasn't sure if that was really necessary or if I could simply use my EP-2.

These are my first Metasonix units and I haven't ever used CV before, so sorry if the question sounds dumb.

Ep-2 works fine. That's what I have. The mp-201 has many additional great things but its not required and is really expensive.

Just finished my first modular. It isn't ALL yellow, but hey, you have to leave room for improvement...

This beast does it all. Could not be more inspired lately.
Plays well with the shared system, Maths and Wogglebug, also follows the wave outputs of the STO and DPO quite magically.

Image


Was so inspired I grabbed one of these before they are gone!
So far it is also instant luv. Still getting to know it.
It also plays well with others but is back to its naked state as of late.

Image


Last but not least, my R collection grows.
The top case is primed to be filled.
The winter storm has delayed a few more I am waiting on.
Seems a good run of used R modules on the BST
Grab em!

I've finally got a nice tight gigging setup happening (after not quite three years but who's counting). Huge thanks to Eric for advice on getting the TM-rack together and powered.

Finally, after so long my Metasonix rig is complete :sb: :party: :hihi: I will post sounds eventually when I get time. On top is a D-1000 I modded myself and out of the picture on the floor is another TM-7 I use with my pedals :metasonix:Image

Here's a work in progress, a banana yellow system - to be used with my Bugbrand and other banana modulars - and my other yellow, of course. It's now up and running, although not complete.

Image

The missing spaces are reserved for two R55 and one RK2, with space for a couple more RK modules, if and when they arrive. Also, the top frame will be painted orange, like the base.

PSU-wise, it contains one PSU per row - Doepfer PSU2, PSU3 and the PSU that comes with the 1frame case (don't know what it's called).

For bananafication of the modules, see my recent thread about that.

My tube baby is finished. After one year of collecting modules, getting PSUs and frames, painting, connecting internal DC cables, and not the least, bananfication of the whole lot. :banana:
Quite happy about this monster. She has room for a couple of more 8hp modules, in case Eric will come up with further innovative crazyness - which is highly likely.
Image
The system contains all R and RK modules, with two each of the oscillators (R54 and R55) and the waveshaper (R53). Except the R56 - I already have two Bugbrand Spring Tankers. Also it simply didn't fit. It also has 4 passive LPGs for utility and gestural signal control
Altogether, it has 20 tubes. And it dwarfs my Wretch in complexity and patchability.
It is made to be used with my bananafrac systems (Bugbrand, Wiard, Blacet, Metalbox/CGS, etc) and some 4U (NonLinearSystems), with plenty of clock/gate/seq/gestural controllers, so I have no need for much CV generation here. This is for pure sonic bliss.
Image
I couldn't resist turning off the light. Oh, the glow... :nana:
Image
Power is taken care of by three Doepfer PSUs - PSU2 (original in the lower 6U case), PSU3 (mounted by me in the lower part, to supply plenty of 5V for the R55s) and the standard 3U PSU (with external transformer) for the upper Doepfer frame. The 5V from PSU3 is distributed to two of the frames, and all are co-grounded.

Not actually yellow, but...

Post by synchromesh » Tue Jun 13, 2017 5:39 am

This is my latest addition - julian made me a custom panel for my "naked" R-54 and last night I finally got around to drilling & filing it out. It all came out fairly nicely, other than the infill using the Edding 780 paint pen wasn't hugely successful - cleanup with acetone failed to remove all the paint, so there's a bit of a red "cloud" remaining. :doh:

Never mind, overall I'm pretty pleased with it. :guinness:

EDIT: Turns out a little Brasso polish cleans up the excess paint nicely, so now it looks much nicer.

Image

Photos of the rest of my yellow once I sort out my "wall of cheap Chinese doom" PSU to power it all... :cloud:

My R-54 looks just like anybody else's, but here's what it sounds like.

Image

The signal is on the x-axis and its derivative on y. No input, the harsh switch pointing down, overdrive almost max, resonance about 5-6 o'clock and tune at 4. I suppose it's chaotic. Pure tones would produce an ellipse instead of this mess.

I guess the Curtis Filter is going to have to fuck off into a different case now that the RK5 is shipping.

I finally have my rack built. Only a few modules so far.

Image

The rack is actually 7U, but the Zorx ribbon controller is sitting on the 1U rails. I posted more pictures of the build project in the DIY cases thread: viewtopic.php?p=2773226#2773226

Started with an R-54 4 weeks ago. Went bananas for the yellow after that.
