That's a fair point. After the first 20 mins I had the whole module committed to memory, certainly a welcome change from menu diving.sir stony wrote:I don't think trying to squeeze many more modes and options into this wonderful module is a great idea. If it had a few more ways of visual feedback like a display or a couple more leds, ok.
But it's really a great module already, as it is, and for a reasonable price considering the hours of unavoidable tuning work saved over a couple of years of use. If people need precision adders and cv'able transposers, there are other modules to do that, thinking e.g. vpme t43 and frequency central transeuropa. They are good, but not everyone needs them, and modules that are overstuffed with features and too little visual feedback about what's going on are a sure call for chaos to get lost in, and nobody is a fan of that, right?
I'd prefer to leave the caltrans as it is, nice and slim, but maybe make a bigger brother to it which incorporates such extras, also maybe all the different scales that are in the twin waves, too? Looking at the the µO_C, it wouldn't even have to be any bigger than that.
The thing I cared least about when I got it was the presets but now it's the real power of the module. To illustrate I just recorded this:
Patch is attenuated rising saw into first input on Caltrans. Caltrans feeding all 4 vcos in A-143-4. Then into Derish for delay.
All the variation is from preset switching and adjusting delay, I didn't touch anything else. You can hear in parts the speed the cv changes causes pops

Edit: I didn't think to add the quantizer on different channels, next demo!
