After spending a lot time listening to modular synth artist I like and watching endless videos, I think I'm close on my set up to go with my Moog DFAM & M32. This is supposed to be 2 separate Make Noise 104 hp skiffs. I already have one skiff with Maths, Int QVCA, Nano Plaits, Pico Logic, Pico Multi and 4ms QCD with Expander (top row). Having a lot of fun already. I love playing with multiple syncopated rhythms but want the flexibility to breath and get a little ambient as well.

I would love some input if I am going in the right direction, should I make some changes or how should I fill that last 10hp hole.

Thanks a ton!

I would swap the Intuitive Quantizer for an 8hp o_C. It will give you 4 Channels of quantizers but a lot of other things too. I also think it’s a better quantizer than the ADDAC (I sold mine and kept the o_C)

I'd eliminate the TipTop, ADDAC and Maths for a pair of Distings. I'd also consider WMD Crucible instead of the HiHat module.

Some sort of effects? Disting would fill that gap somewhat..

I think you will need the right kind of buffered multiple IF you want to interface pitch CV between Mother-32 and other modules. The Doepfer A-182-1 is passive, so it won’t give you this. There are good options for suitable buffered mults from Frap Tools, Intellijel, Malekko, or AJH Synth.

Here is a great article by Chris Meyer explaining this:

A clock divider can give you a lot of mileage in rhythmic and ambient applications. If you're a 4MS fan, their RCD (with expander) kills it.

Why not replace it with A-185-2 Precision Adder, also function as a 1 to 3 buffered mult.

True, or could get a Disting MK4 which has the Adder (plus loads more) and an Intellijel buffered mult. This combo is 6HP, same as the A-185-2. Lots of options.

Yeah, all roads lead to Disting!

I may look into that. I chose the ADDAC mainly because someone I know has one and likes it, but I'm for space saving and if I can get added features, all the better.

Thanks!

I would have a hard time off loading my Maths, I have it now and it's pretty useful. The WMD Crucible looks pretty interesting, might look into that.

The Disting has been on and off my modular grid a dozen times. I get excited about it, then it gets bumped for something else. Back and forth. Sounds like I need to put it back in. The amount of stuff it can do for only 4 hp is hard to resist I admit, but I've heard there is a bit of menu diving. I guess it would be worth it.

Thanks!

Warming up to the Disting for sure.

Thanks!

You may not have seen the Pico Multi. Buffered and active. This is the very reason I chose to add this module, did some reading on this issue. Love Chris Meyer, hadn't seen this video - perfect demonstration.

Thanks!

I agree with you, but I had the RCD for a minute and traded it in for the QCD, multiplies and divides. Run it into the Pico Logic and you get some really crazy rhythms!

May do a little digging and consider swapping the A-182-1 for the A-185-2. Good thought.
