malnatim wrote:looks like the main out and the aux are both mixes of wet and dry signal. i think the aux is the inverse of the main. i guess these are like the L + R outputs on the orig. the phase out is 100% wet. so you can use a mixer to blend with dry signal and create your own feedback loop. re. cv there's 2 exponential inputs (labeled 1v/oct), 1 with attenuation. there's also an unattenuated linear input and unattenuated cv input. i'm not sure how this cv input differs from the unattenuated 1v/oct input? i don't understand enough to know. can anyone please explain? the orig also has a cv input labeled flange. not sure what they mean by that. maybe it corresponds with the cv input on nlc 329. not found orig schematic. this is interesting though…
Does anyone have more info on the controls/inputs? Specifically:
- is there a difference between the two inputs or are they just mixed?
- which channel's IN and 1V/OCT are attenuated by the knobs? both?
- what's the difference between CV and LINCV?
- what does the FREQ knob do?
This thing sounds amazing, but I don't want to buy one without knowing what the controls do!
The two inputs are mixed and are both attenuated by the IN pot, as per the original Aries design.
The 1V/oct input in the upper row of jacks goes to the corresponding pot, the one in the lower row is straight thru.
CV is labelled 'Flange' on the Aries panel, but on the schematic someone has crossed off 'Flange' and written 'CV'.......really it can be used to jam a CV in to the module or as a Flange input (not a true Flange as some have pointed out). Either way a great use of this module is to have two different VCOs plugged into it,one to an input, the other into the CV/Flange input. Have the VCOs running closely together and wait for the beat frequencies.
Lin CV comes after the log circuit and injects voltage straight into the base of the phase shift network.
All the CVs connect at the base, the audio signals start at the top.
The Freq knob sets the fundamental frequency around which the circuit will operate. Basically patch in your signal and tweak the Freq knob (and Res/Q) until it sounds good.
Not sure how you are with schematics, for me it is the easiest way to grok a circuit, it is in the build manual -
