If you don’t like the sound now, you won’t with different caps.
If you *do* like the sound now, then stop fretting about microscopic differences and make some noise.
If you haven’t built it yet, then maybe go do that.
Note that the reason Thonk uses mixed caps is the caps for the 2 lower bands in poly are about the size of an entire human thumb, and somewhat of an adventure to even place on the board.
Just IMO (of a person who *has* built one, with mixed caps, and is just fine with it as-is).
Well, unfortunately, I don't own both versions, so I can't compare them to answer my question myself.
As I'm not an engineer, I'm not sure, if the differences are microscopic or not, that was also a part of my initial question. I think it's the right thread to ask such questions, correct me, if not.
I totally understand Thonk approach, BUT many builders here are still quite adventurous) I also heard that CGS builders used styro exclusively for their bands on Res EQs.
As far as I get the whole idea and genius behind this module, it's about subtleties and micro-control of every tiny harmonic aspect of the sound with the ability to add it's own life and even kind of "pseudo-acoustic" information to a sound. A truly advanced sculptural instrument, rather than being an utilitarian one. Thus, the question is still there.
I'm totally not a FLAC fan, but we all are here for a reason.
Making noise is the final goal of all this, I agree, but you don't need any modulars for that, really
