hey! been a while.

not had any time to play with modular at all for over a year now :( but back on it now.

My plan for this weekend was to try a cool variable shape filter patch tony told me about in the oakley forum using the oakley SVF and dual vca.

this turned into fuck i tried to plug in a power cable with the modular powered up, and accidently connected 15v to ground, causing a quite impressive spark, and taking out an SVCO and who knows what else yet :waah:

i really need to learn to not do this. ]

hope all your weekends have been better ! :hihi:

Totally spacey! :sb:

We've had nothing but snow falling all day long. Beautiful powder snow! The local ski clubs are loving it.

I've spent some time today rearranging some of my studio. I picked up a used Roland JX-8P the other day and I have to find it a home, MIDI channel, patch bay location, etc...

And since I'm already wiring.... :roll: It never ends

Plus on the 5U side of things I got this bitchin' sounding percussion patch that I'm now working with to see if it goes anywhere.

Apparently, it was my turn to support the 5U manufacturers and Noisebug this month.

By the way, if yall would reserve for me s/n 10 for new modules, I might break down and buy without too many awkward questions...

I added noise and slew limiter dirctly to my Box Elevens.

Maybe not the best result :hihi: but I am happy with it :party:

I used shorter pcb legs (1cm) and I screw the pcbs directly to the bottom of box11. There is still space left to insert some shallow modules on top of it.
Do you have pictures to show the mounting of the PCBs?
This is from "Slew box" but "noise box" is similar.
You may ask why the pcb is not straight? Well - there are in the bottom of the box11 couple of holes - so I decided to use two of those. If you put the pcb diagonally you can use those and then you need to drill only two extra holes LOL

Yeah I am lazy ;)

K, you know how sometime you have a job that you keep putting off and putting off and putting off etc...

Mine was to convert my own, personal Fixed Filter Bank into a Fixed Filter Bank Pro. After all.... why should everyone else have all the fun :hihi:

So this weekend I finally sat down and upgraded my filter and I can't be happier! Fixed Filter Banks by themselves are fantastic for sculpting sounds. Folks who have never used one may think "big deal, it's an EQ" but it really is far more.

Ok.... enough fun toys for me. Back to work 8-)

ha, me too. except in motm.

was perfect serendipity, my mate has bought a microfreak and i was really impressed with it. then i saw the post about the motm version and i was like :party: :75:

this weekend i had a really cool jam in my studio, for the first time in ages. Had to move and rebuild everything but its finally almost perfect, and sounds awesome. Im so happy. My old dynacords and Dominion are back from the repair shop, ive fixed a few other bits myself, and wired it up. Sounding incredible.

we did manage a recording of a decent 100% oakley modular (except a little step sequencer - make yours 5u tony please!) and tm3030 jam. ill have a listen back and post it if its as good as the late night music goggles (?) suggested :hihi:

cheers
