Author FX insert options
loudone
i was wondering what options there are to insert FX pedals into the synth...
I have seen the stilton, and the dopefer 138d
Or do most people just send a signal straight to the pedals....would be loud as hell though...
seriously, i just don't get it

I use the stilton adapter from theharvestman.

I remember, before I purchased it I started a thread for this.
the best module you could get (perhaps) will be that one from
cwejman. still, the stilton can give you 4 seperate inserts, and thats cool-

man, I was just thinking about starting a thread like this!! hmmm.....

sorry to hijack, but also dont you always have less then 100% wet singal? There will always be a bit of a dry signal in there. right?

again, sorry to hijack but starting another thread doesnt seem like a good/smart idea.

Someone (sorry can't remember who) pointed me at this link if you fancy a bit of DIY

http://www.cgs.synth.net/modules/cgs60_sba.html

Although I haven't built them yet I picked up 10 PCB's so I could build five mono in stereo out adapters.

i use reamps and d.i.s.
skaio
the 130d may be useful... But is always line level (low impedance) and the guitar pedals work at high impedance. A reamp (reverse D.I.) would be better...

'Cos i need to plug my guitar into my system, i'll take a simple a-119 external input (could be used as return) and the a-sol HP01 as send (it's an attenuator). I don't mind of impedances and i get more functions... This is fun!

I am in love with my 138d... It was a seriously missing piece of kit in my setup!
SquidInSquidInk
Like skaio, I use an attenuator on the 1U section of my MW case for send and an A-119 for return.
loudone
i Have the MW case as well. so The a119 works well?
I also bought a 181 mult but i would have to re-amplify the signal....which is what the a119 does....
Which cwejman do people use..the ai-2?

thing is, you need two processes:

take your synth signal and attenuate it. (otherwise everything will just be a distorted hot mess)
Take your pedal signal coming back and amplify it.(otherwise it'll be way too low)

There really are just two units for this, imo:
Stilton Adaptor and a-138d

The stilton is great if you want a big rig of pedals wired up, especially for doing feedback shit. Downsides: Rather big for something many only use once in a while, and you need Y-type cables.
The doepfer is great if you just have one pedal you need hooked up, or indeed one chain of pedals. Downsides: just has one "channel", but you can just pick up more, of course.

I use my a-138d more than I use any other module... and I really should pick up one more.

Sure, all you really need is something to lower the signal going from your modular to the effect(s) and something to raise the signal going back into the modular. The A-119 works fine for this, but it's primarily designed for guitar/mic/etc. input. It looks like the A-138d may be more specific to your needs since it includes a wet/dry mix.

EDIT: wetterburg explained it more fully than I did. If you have room, both the A-119 and A-138d are small and cheap and you'll probably find uses for both.

also, it sounds better, to my ears at least.

I don't see any reason you can't throw a small behringer mixer (with an fx send of its own!) into the loop of the 138d. That would make for some truly mind-bending complexity as far as feedback patching goes.
loudone
I was thinking of using an external mixer to just insert fx on whatever channel i want...I am going to have probably three channels from my modular...
But i do really want to be able to effect the fx in the modular realm as well...that is the point.
AH is out of the 138d of course angry
I have eyed the a119 quite a bit....the stilton looks awesom, but it is a lot f stuff going on...but it opens up many possibilities as well hmmm.....
and this is in stock applause
blungo2
Does not Cwejman ins-2mx do something similar?
