Make Noise Rosie

Post by booger » Sat Dec 15, 2018 11:36 am

I really like this module. I initially bought it just to fill out empty space on my B&G Shared System. The output from Rosie sounds way more 'rich' and 'full' to me than when I plug into the utility strip. Plus, the send and returns are a nice option. I realize that it's not the sexiest module but I didn't see any posts on it specifically, so I thought I'd give it a shout out.

stereo outs with a limiter on both sides comes in handy, especially when taking the synth out of the studio

its actually the module ive played the longest, almost 3 years now

I’ve got a WMD Pro Output which I chose over the Rosie when I built my first rack because I needed the 2hp difference in size elsewhere, but especially as I consider trying to build up a “performance” that has voices coming in and out, rather than just moving voices around, that cue listen circuit feels like something I should’ve found the 2hp for somehow.

Another happy Rosie user here. As I’ve spent more time wiggling, I’ve learned that some utility modules are actually more important for the “fun and easy” part than the sexy modules that get all the attention here and elsewhere online.

I considered between MN Rosie and Bastl Ciao!, and selected the Rosie.
I'm using the Cue Output as Send, for 100% wet.
FYI, It is more HP but, skiff friendly than Ciao.

Another happy Rosie user here. It’s a clever design that adds control at home and at gigs. It can be fun to overdive the inputs and get some distortion from the limiters. Maybe not for a live set, but that can be cool for recording a part or two. It’s also nice to have a headphone out while traveling and being away from my speakers.

Been wanting to get Rosie, I just wish it had modular level outputs as well, so it’s work as a little mixer / ext audio processor /fx chain as well as an output module.

I freakin' love the Rosie and use it daily.
Does anyone else ever experience scratchiness from the pots? I occassionally hear some scratchiness but could be a cable issue.

I have a ton of make noise and scratchy pots are business as usual for a couple year old module of theirs. Contact them and they can fix it.

i think its one of those where the A/B pot makes noise ( :miley: ) if any signals running thru it when you turn it

the details on why are foggy but i seem to recall it being a design aspect (some kinda tradeoff maybe?)

speaking of design aspects, has anyone found any use for the expansion header on the back? that kinda things above my pay grade but im always interested in cool stories

So it's a feature? :doh:
I have an MMG with scratchy pots too so I may just send all my funky modules to them at the same time.

I just picked up a Rosie from Control to centralize my Eurorack/non-Eurorack sound sources and add headphone capabilities as well. Eurorack gets summed by Sound Stage/LRMSMSLR into the main inputs; drum machine and poly synths go into a 10 channel Behringer mixer, CRTL RM out into Return on the Rosie. It sounds way better to monitor through the Rosie than the Behringer.

I keep my LRMSMSLR right next to Rosie to go through the stereo return, but running the drums and external gear makes a lot of sense if you're using the headphone cue a lot. Since those inputs are always routed through the cue it's probably easier to audition the A/B channels with drums behind them.

My one issue with Rosie is that the crossfade seems to have a dip in loudness when it's 50/50. When fully to one side, the individual A or B channel always seems significantly louder than the 50/50 mix of the two. I usually find my self adjusting the main level while crossfading to keep the volume constant.

I always seemed to struggle with gain staging with Rosie. But it's a great output module with a lot of functionality for the size & price.

My guess is that the middle between a and b has headroom/gain stage in mind

Same here! I have a Rosie and MMG with scratchy pots and will need to send them off :doh:

I LOVE the Rosie though and use it every day. The FX loop is amazing especially with delays and reverbs. The only thing I don't like (besides the scratchy pots) is that noise still bleeds through even when turned all the way down. I've heard this is a 'feature' too but I'd prefer if it went fully silent.

Can anyone confirm that Rosie works with ~250ohm headphones? I use a pair of Beyerdynamic DT150 which didn't work well with the Intellijel uJack

I just got a Rosie recently and I'm generally happy with it.

One small issue: I purchased a TRS Y cable for the main output. If I push the cable all the way in, the output signal drops to almost nothing. This is fixed by simply pulling the cable out a little bit so that it is about 3/4 of the way in, but feel like this is wrong and I should be able to have the cable plugged in 100%.

Has anyone else experienced this? Did I buy the wrong cable? This is the cable: https://hosatech.com/products/analog-au ... s/cys-100/

Yeah you're probably right. I figured it was like that by design but just something I've had to keep in mind while using it.

What is the destination that you're sending the Rosie output to? The cable you got splits a stereo signal into two identical stereo signals. Did you perhaps mean to buy a cable that splits a stereo signal into left and right mono signals?

Yeah I use a send-return cable on the output. TRS to T/S-T/S.

Ahh yes, now that I look at the product description I definitely bought the wrong cable. I actually bought this at a local shop and it was the only 1/4" to 1/4" Y-cable they had.

Do you all use Line Level effects in Rosies Send Return? The Manual says the Effekt Send Return is full modular Level. Been thinking about Rosie too, but don´t want to break my Pedal Stuff.

I only used mine with a modular level effect. You’ll probably want a pedal interface for that.

I can recommend the Strymon AA.1 (Amplifier Attenuator) module for translating between Rosie and Big Sky.
