about 27mm behind the panel with a cable plugged in. Single PCB horizontal to the panel, very skiffable! 8-)

Well I thought I was done with my rack, but I guess not :lol: This VCO sounds amazing.

Not a lot of new modules to get excited about lately. This one is an exception!

Just when I thought that I didn't need/want another oscillator. You know what this means? Serious rack re-arrangement, and something has to go into temporary retirement.

Hi.
Can anyone explain a bit more about the "damping"?

I get so far...

1. For output of clean signal(like sine) from 4 spin outputs, it needs to be CCW.

2. It's used as resonance when AG is used as filter.

However, it changes sound somehow when I get output from "grind" out.

Big Thanks!!!!

The grind section will compare whatever is coming out of the four spin outputs with the grind input and subtract those compared signals from the input signal.

If the DAMPING and GRIND->SPIN knobs are CCW then the spin section is an oscillator and the grind section will be comparing a sine wave against an unrelated input signal. This effect is in the ball park of ring mod or sync effects.

If DAMPING and GRIND->SPIN knobs are CW then the spin section is filtering the input signal and the outputs are filtered versions of the input, this means when you compare them against the input you are comparing and subtracting the signal against itself and creating a feedback path. This effect is tends to be somewhere between that of distortion and self resonating filters.

If you the controls are somewhere between those two modes you get a mixture of both types of effects.

Does that help?

I have been receiving requests to show some of what the Angle Grinder can do with a drum machine as the input, here is a video with the Tom Cat :hihi:

Yes. It helps. However still confused.

With the setting in the pic, sound disappears if "damping" knob goes after 9 o'clock toward CW.
Nothing comes out of grind out or spin out. And all the LEDs around spin knob is gone.

Is it normal?

Yep! With no external input turning up the damping (CW) will stop it from oscillating, when using it as a standalone oscillator i would always keep damping fully CCW. It is there for when you are processing external signals and and want it to behave more like a filter.

OK, got mine now. Not had much time to play with it yet, but it's a beast. The manual leaves a little to be desired, in my opinion, but luckily I'm more of a stick some cables in and see what happens sort of guy

Sadly family circumstances have meant that I've barely had time to do anyhing with my Angle Grinder other than screw it into the rack and check that it works. Look forward to Monday afternoon, when I have the day off work and can give it a proper going over.

Just received two of there

Ive only scrathed the surface, and I can confirm that:


- perfect built
- amazing as a modulator... just look at all the cv inputs... very organic and evolving shapes to be discovered with other modulators
- amazing as a vco (very subtle but beautiful linear fm, exponential fm is more interesting to me, metallic and pronounced but able to track reasonably too on subtle settings) with many beautiful and harsh waveforms and tracks perfectly
- literally insane as a vcf/distortion
- super fun. very open ended design, still no obvious quirks even though its analog and at least 3 super powerful functions that leave some standalone modules that do only one thing out in the rain
- very reasonable price

go support that guy :nana:

+1 to all these comments. This is an absolute beast of a module and a total delight to mess around with! Very very very satisfied!
