I need a clean dual gain Module in 4hp / or single in 2hp ?? ( Gozinta replacement)

Post by Funky40 » Sun Aug 16, 2020 6:53 pm

The "Gozinta" from circuit abbey is a dual mono Gain Module in 4hp, which delivers a clean Sound.
i really like it !

BUT: its no longer available !
The Gozinta was just perfect !!


Any tipps for a replacement ?
Has to have GOOD electronics and a simple UI ?
dual gain in 4hp, or single gain in 2 hp !!........no 3hp or 5hp
All jackks on the bottom MUCH prefered !



( i just tryied modulargrid btw., thst a hard one on this )
i´m alos totally dependent on where its available, sicne shipping costs are an issue for me, beeing in switzerland, which is NOT EU.

The Ladik could work out, "if" i can´t find any better, JAcks not on the buttom, and cluttered, though

Mutant modular has a 2hp unit, could be something ( ok, shipps from spain, need to check)
https://mutantmodular.es/modules/25-preamp.html

anything else ?
has anybody a tip for a smaller, more private place to surf euro modular or "experimental electronic music making " as such ?
Or is there a place where the "old" wigglers meet again? please PM me
its too big here, can´t handle the timeload any longer

The Antumbra DVCA (4HP version of Veils) can give you two channels of up to 20 dB gain, and it's a VCA to boot. And the jacks are on the bottom.

Also I don't know how much they would charge to ship to you, but there is someone in the U.S. selling a Gozinta on Reverb:

Also, I just looked, there is someone selling one for $75 + shipping on Muffs, check the FS/T forum.

This is DC coupled. It is made for contact mics but you can use it on anything. I just got it in the mail but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

The Happy Nerding 2xSAM module should do what you need. Can be configured via jumpers to bring line level up to modular levels in stereo in 4hp:

SAM says up to 5x gain which is 14dB boost.
I'm not buying a maths though, not my idea of fun...

Out of curiosity, how did you calculated that?

I'm guessing from the Mod grid page;
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/happy-nerding-2xsam

Dual Stereo Attenuator-Mixer

2xSAM is 4 HP Dual Stereo Attenuator-Mixer
- Separate stereo outputs for attenuator duties
- Stereo mixer output
- Optional 5x gain for each input to raise line levels to modular amplitude (jumpers on the backside)
- Clean (low noise and distortion) performance
- Right inputs are normalled to Left inputs for easy mono operation
- AC coupled inputs
- Several 2xSAMs can be chained together or with other HN stereo modules via sockets on the back side

27 mA +12V
27 mA -12V
? mA 5V
35 mm deep
Ø 5.00 (1 Votes) Average Rating

Or are you asking how that equals 14db boost?

Yeah I think johannes was asking for the formula: L = 20 × log (V1/V2), where V1 / V2 is the voltage gain. So 5x gain = 20 x log(5) = 20 x .69897 = 13.98 dB

A decibel is a logarithmic expression of a ratio.

For audio dB and ratio conversions:

dB's = 20 * log10(ratio)

ratio = 10^(dB's/20)

i wanted to buy this, but it was never in stock whne i looked.
anyway not as a kit
https://mutantmodular.es/kits/32-preamp.html
2hp would have come in really handy.

the happy nerding stereo attenuverter was never in my mind, as something that could act as a (stereo) gainstage.
I might rethink this......... But Igors modules are now hard to get for me, since he is no longer shipping direct.
has anybody a tip for a smaller, more private place to surf euro modular or "experimental electronic music making " as such ?

i use this:
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/animodule-line-amp

pretty basic, but does what it's called for.
also the second output is really handy for parallel processing.

I have for this the tanh from Intruo, but it's not clean at all, but in most cases it does the job amd sometimes the harmonics of the saturation are just right.
