Such an underrated module. I'm using it with a Res-4 and a couple of other modules and there is endless fun to be had.

I cut him several weeks slack before I gave up and returned it. Nice module, poor communication = not risking 300 quid for it to break down and be SOOL.

Has anyone ever figure out power requirements?

The way I guess it is that it's like a Piston Honda sans blinkenlights.
Assuming each LED and LED slider are 15mA, that's 6x15= 90mA.
So Kermit should roughly be 150mA - 90mA = 60 mA?
Back of the envelope generator calculation.

Interesting deduction. Would still like to know for sure. What if there is a time machine under the panel?

Actually assume it's 2 Pistons/Time Machines, so 120mA would be safer.

Thanks for the chart! Appreciate all the videos as well.

Does anyone know if the clock multiplier/divider in tap tempo mode is continuous or discrete?
Are the divisions integer values? Fractional? Euclidean series? Ramanujan numbers?
Quite an amazing feature.

Also, are the divisions symmetrical with the multiplications? Example, if the frequency knob is centred and apply -1V then it's /3, and if I apply +1V then it' x3?

This display may be useful but I think I should do a cleaner job like the one I did for the Double andore v1

I also noticed that my 2nd oscillator on the Kermit doesnot come back to Sine wave. Am I the only one with this nice feature :eek:

I have the same behavior with osc B; it ends (waveform knob fully clockwise) at a noisy waveform that is somewhat effected by where osc A pitch and waveform are.

I've never made it that far in the wavetables. I have it leathered and bound to the Bionic Lester, so I'm usually finished and the rope releases before I've modulated to the end of the wavetable.

I have an EC coming soon, very interested in how much time I can dedicate to learning its inner workings.

Damn you. Have to check out the EC now. Was hoping you'd say Brainseed or something I already have!

Ha Ha ! No need for a learning curve with the EC, just wiggle those knobs, and listen to what happens in the myriad of sweet spots !

I checked out my Kermit on the scope (an O'Tool) and the "10vp-p" outputs only go 5vp-p. In other words, it's only going to -5 and to +5.

Is this the case for your Kermit modules?

That is correct. It is still outputting 10v edge to edge or peak to peak. That is how most LFOs work, they go through 0 from -5v to +5v add that up and it equals 10. Kermit also has the 0-5V output which is positive only.

Ok, thanks. For some reason I thought my analog osc went from -10 to +10 but I checked and it doesn't :doh: It's the same range as the Kermit.

audio, vco use wise, u guys have problems tuning it to other voices?
i really like its smaller size and the second osc/lfo over the honda..think i'd be finde with the amount of waves....

Using its one tuning knob? Not really, which surprised me, but it is easier to tune other ocs to it. It does stay put though. Of course, if you have things set up, and you bump it, it takes a bit more effort to dial back in. However, I haven't used it with more than one osc.

Cool sounds deltaAquarii. Congrats on getting a Kermit and putting it to good use. It's cool seeing it used more as an Oscillator than a modulator (my primary use). Sounds dirty as hell is the best way towards the end.
