mod 208E independent gate1,2(audio and cv mix patching?)

Post by Chenhuaiwang » Mon Feb 17, 2020 3:42 am

Hi Folks,Hope you all doing well :) I have a question wondering about: I mod my 208e few days ago, now I have two independent output from gate 1 and gate 2 on top of the panel(so I can do the cross modulation thing), but I heard that mix patching the audio and CV can be damage since Buchla separate the audio and CV to avoid the negative voltage. Do you know have much negative voltage that 208 CV pot can handle (like < -5)? and how much the audio produce negative voltage( like +5 ~ - 5) ?
all the best

Negative and bipolar/audio signals up to +/-15V are safe with any 208, unlike the 200e modules.

I'm not a synths dealer and I'm not aware of an inexpensive Synthi secret market, please don't ask me if I know one for sale.

I don't know for the Marf but yes the 208 can work with Serge voltages.

Can you share the procedure?
Thanks!

hi Synthi, you mean the mod? I found two spot under the chann A and B knobs and I disconnect the two outputs on top the panel. link the chan A,B direct to the outputs, that's it ! I actually learn it from Papz, he was post some info before..
