It's my first IME module but I foresee a lot more in a rather immediate future :)
Don't sleep on the normalled cross-modulation to elicit new modulation variations.

I found a DAmk2 on Crtl Mod used. I wasn't going to get it, but the price for two ADs and two VCAs was about the same as getting this module, and separately ate up way too much HP. I'm glad I found one used - it is such a useful module.

Shhhh. Keep your voice down.
Plus don't mention the various additional utility modules also included.
The proper mantra we are to parrot and sheep through our mouths should include "expensive" and "too many horizontal pitch" and "epicurean" and "sybaritic" and "elitist". Other permutations consistent with the "opposite of reality" zone of twilight theme are also acceptable.
Reason and careful rational thought are considered a plague that must be lobotomized and excavated immediately. Witches should never experience pleasure because il castrato become enraged with jealousness.

Well, my update on Kermit and Malgorithm mk2 is that I bought both used on Reverb yesterday and should have them soon.

Sorta OCD about having an entire case being mk2 Harvestman but no Bionic Lester :(

i'm in the process of giving all my modules some tlc.

has anybody ever attempted to calibrate the kermit?
obviously, there are trim pots for 'a-scale' and 'b-scale' on the back of the module. but what would the procedure exactly look like, i wonder?

also, i have terrible bleed from section a on section b. particularly when the b is in audiorate with wavetable knob past 4 o'clock. anybody else with that problem?

thank you guys!

Kermit One Shot LFO ( Unless Its not what people mean by one shot LFO )

VERSION 1- ( Simple One Shot LFO )
Tempo Divided by 8 ( Or more )

Sent that gate to EG Envelope
( Also Multed version to 1V / Oct Input of Kermit VCOA)

EG Out to Kermit VCOA
( CV Destination Red for Amplitude Modulation in LFO Mode )
( Attenuverter Full CW VCA Closed Completely )

Monitor VCOB Output
( CV Destination Green for Frequency Modulation in OSC Mode)
( Attenuverter Anywhere other then Center position VCA Opened To liking )

VERSION 2- ( Complex One Shot LFO )
Same as above but send VCOA to desired destination for modulation and monitor that destination instead

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

For the LFO to re-trigger at the same spot every time hold the Gate High.
Higher Frequencies are more precise but not exact
It Sounds like a Phase Loop Lock When Trigger is high though
Kermit Rules Imagine the MK3 Version :deadbanana:

Scott told me that the MKIII Kermit will have a bonus oscillator ( operator ) for each channel.
And the '' one shot '' will mostly act like a bipolar envelope.
So the next Kermit will be able to have it's own VCA if the CV is sent to the amplitude and by using the other channels as a one shot will have it's own envelope. Pretty handy.

donc cool en criss !! :tu:

Unbelievable :yay:
Im Really Flabbergasted by his Electronic Musical Creations
They really explore the endless bounds of sound and rhythmical exploration
Design Choice / Muliti-Features / Aesthetic / User Interface choices are sublime Plus the HP Size 17 hp dual wavetable or 3op Fm Osc

It was the extra touch of madness to add Make Noise and Harvestman Together
Though i only own Kermit and Malgorhitm as Sound sources
Im Contemplating Beetween PHmk3 n HDmk3

The first time i heard the Kermit in Person Sweeping that wavetable
I got ear raped LOL ( Kind of like It was a new Musical Scale that my soul was yearning for )
Same with the Malgorhytm Mk2

Definitely got the IME Bug Lol

I only have the PHmk3, but you can't miss with this module. Some of my examples that feature PHmk3:
