||Ripples vs doepfer a-120
| br>Rui Miguel
| br>Need your help please:
Ripples or doepfer a-120?
Any good advice?
Thank you br> br>
| br>They are both different filter designs.
Ripples = OTA circuit (Think Roland sound)
A-120 = Transistor Ladder (Think Moog sound)
Advice will really come down to the type of filter that a person likes best, and your probably the best person to decide that
I will say that Ripples is handy in that it has a VCA built into it's 4 pole output. br> br>
| br>I have both, and like em both in their own way.
Thoughts: ripples edges it in a smaller system imo, because you can choose ( or mix) lp4, lp2 or bp2 modes. It has cv over res, and the Vca on the 4 pole out.
But the 120 has lovely overdrive and 3 cv ins for complex modulation.
If you have space and budget, get both *meme*
If you only have space for one, ripples.
But ideally, hear both and choose the one you prefer sonically. br> br>
| br>Ripples and A-120 haven't the same design nor the same purpose.
The first one, the Ripples, is multimode and wants to be pretty handy. A good choice.
But i prefer the A-120. It looks more basic at first glance but it has a sound solid as a rock and 3 inputs for modulations. Those 3 inputs make it a winner. Think it as a sonic acrobat. br> br>
