The Zlob MiniAtt is an insanely useful module for the money. Tiny footprint, cheap kit (easy build) and so, so useful
what do the switches do?
Sorry, I didn't see your question. Yes, they're mutes

I've been throwing a Big Ass Bandana over my modular as a dust cover for the past few months. Ever since selling off my guitar pedals, instead of pulling the cloth off completely, I've just been piling it onto the top of the case.

Also, lately my case has been running warmer. I thought it was due to one of the new modules I'd put in... but tonight I made the connection.

Pile of cloth on top of case = heat escapes more slowly = warmer synth :doh:

Discovered a black hole in my savings account due to spending to much money on modules ;)

I am tempted to print this entire thread and put it in a binder. This thread should be a sticky.

Wholeheartedly agree. I’ve actually started a gdoc

One thing I’ve noticed just lately;

Patch cable deficit once solved leads to more modules moving in.......which leads to patch cable deficit.

i just ordered 84 cables - does the fact i'll now have enough to satisfy the remaining 9u i have to fill mean i've shortcircuited and overloaded the system or have i just ramped things up to disastrous proprtions?

It means Your bank manager loves you.

I’m on my second order of cables this month for a total of 40.... (barely enough at half a glance)
And my 3rd order of modules this month for a total of 6.

I built an 18u 84hp case only in January.......

I am already contemplating how I will go about extending it?
Up some, left a bit or a baby brother :despair:

All I know is, My position is not half as bad as yours!
That and I ain’t sellin a damn thing! :guinness:

A module is for life!
Happy synthin!

here's a chance for another wonderful nugget of advice in this thread:

i was converting my live rig to all right-angle cables so i could close the lids patched - i counted and needed 78 cables - so i contacted the company i wanted to buy off, said i'm planning a bulk order, can i have a discount? sure enough they gave me a significant money off code. always worth asking - i find about 90% of the time places will treat you nice if you're cheeky enough to just come out and ask : D

[i've done this with modules, cables and cases - i think there's something fantastic and so customer focused fundamental decentness baout this industry, i'd certainly be willing to help out people wanting a particulrly big outlay and choosing to spend their money in my shop in that situation : )]

I need some more Banana's and maybe a few more tinijax but overall I'm good. I have enough for a massively complex patch on both of my eurorigs and I can get very deep with my buchla and ciat lonbarde. Depending on how deep I go however I would need to borrow some bananas from another synth to keep going.

I keep rearranging my racks, and yesterday I filled up a setup of 2x84hp and 1x104hp. Main reason was that I got a René v1 in the mail and had to find 36hp in a prime location for it.
After a torturous elimination process I had a rack that looked like it could be fairly versatile and with most basic stuff covered.
Problem is that this setup just eats my medium length cables. Every time I patched something up it was too far for the shorter ones. My discovery was that I need to think about cable lengths when I plan the rack.

:deadbanana: Today my small discovery was that I have 10 modules that you can save presets on. 7 of them can be changed on the fly with a trigger. Most of them are pretty easy to dial in so I only have a couple of presets even saved.

Realize that I’m not even close to using the full potential of these and I’m thinking I might need some kind of sequencer that I could dedicate to be a “preset trigger” module. Could be a really powerful way of changing things up mid-patch for say a breakdown or segue!

(Did I just say I need more stuff? FML) :doh:

Using two WMD Sequential Switches, one for routing 4 channels drum mix to 3 effects + clean. The other for routing 4 synthvoice channels to 4 effect.
Sequential switched are both the routers and the mute/mixers. Amazing results!

Weird tremolo/vibrato with Angle Grinder, when using it as an oscillator:

Turn Grind/Spin to about 9 o'clock. Patch the LP or HP output (notch is more extreme) into a VCA, modulate the VCA with an LFO, patch the VCA output into the Grind input. You might a bit on the Grind sliders or inputs to hear the modulation clearly.

Since the normal Grind feedback path comes through the BP output, patching from one of the other outputs causes phase cancellations/shifts that give it a bit of pitch wobble. :D

I second (or third) that. Amazing. And I even have an unopened pack of 2 door stops. Had no idea why I needed them. Now I know. Thank you Riggar!!!
