Damn! I want a T-Resonator

Post by Muff Wiggler » Sat Apr 05, 2008 7:25 pm

seriously, that thing looks like a TON of fun...

probably will wait to see one used some day, doubt it'll be soon - but yeah, looking pretty slick indeed. well done jomox

not too tough to hook up 2 boogies and 2 time machines and a couple of mixers and splitters for a better-sounding, modular version of the same thing, but the different 'programs' and simplicity of changing them up on the fly rather than recabling makes this thing look like fun-in-a-box, and a cool sketchpad - maybe find something really cool using the T-res and then try to recreate it using modules.....

fun

it looks kinda cool for sure, I saw resonator and expected a blues guitar but a little googling brought it up.

they have a video here

I love the neuronium style layout

I want one, I think it be a perfect little addition to a modular setup... come in mono exit in stereo with some delays filters and lfos... should be nice for a chorus and a flanger even... just to audition the patch before dropping it to the DAW

I was thinking to get one as well.

Does it still feature any of the analog neural network capabilities?

Four hundred monies buys lots of filter.

It's not really a neural net in the same way as the Neuronium is, the Neuronium has a lot of computation going on, there are 'gene sequences' that are carried by a processor attached to each neuron, and they get shunted around. The T-Res is 'just' two interlinked filters with a delay unit, and unless Jurgen has changed the design, the filters are unremarkable in and of themselves. That said, the modulation options the T-Res has does make it look interesting indeed (I had an M-Res that I sold because it simply wasn't that interesting at the end of the day, compared to what I could patch up on my EuF)

Thanks for the detailed reply.

Think I'll wait to see what Jorgen comes up with next.

Let's hope he considers making an ANN CV/Gate generator.

So you're the one who has an EuF-don't know anyone else who can afford that beast.

It was way better for me to spend the money on the EuF than on another synth - esp. since I've started a modular, it means I've got 2 ASRs (really snappy ones with total VC), a VCLFO that has a crazy range, an S+H circuit, an envelope follower, a compressor, distortion, and two multi-mode filters that sound better than anything else I've heard (not counting the crazy diode and switching-capacitor filters, which have a different sound altogether - this is to say the EuF didn't make me sell my Sherman)
Anyway - I got a good deal on it before the prices went up :)

Let's hope Jurgen makes a successor to the Sunsyn, which has 4 voices and is AFFORDABLE!

Oops, mistakenly transposed the o from the company name into his name. :doh:

Sounds like the EuF is a synth with the world as your oscillator.

:hyper: can't wait to hear the report on this baby - I can't stop thinking about this, it's getting very hard to not buy one....

can't wait to get it happening with the modular. after i build it that is :lol:

will post some samples using my other synths though :sb:

well from the moment I plugged it in and turned it on I could tell there was something wrong with my T-Resonator !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

with the effect on, and no filter, filter mod, or delay applied its OK.
with filter and filter mod.. it's ok.
when anything goes through the delay...NOT OK.
a loud, steady 'TICK' is clearly audible.

I have tried all sorts of audio sources. and 2 completely different set-ups (ie @ a friends place).

I am in australia,and have a step down transformer for the US power pack.
The only other thing I can try is to get an actual power pack and not use the step-down transformer. I CANNOT(!) buy the correct power pack (9V AC 500mA). I CAN get a 9V AC 1A pack though, and I have been told to try this (because it only draws 500mA, so 1A is fine???).

HOWEVER. There is a large warning sticker on the 1A plug pack saying 'do not use with devices which draw LESS THAN 1A' !!!!

Anyone have any suggestions / advice???????

I spoke to jurgen from jomox and he basically said 'you must have extreme settings dialed in. it is not broken'. HAAAAAAAAA thanks mate.

Shawn from Analogue Haven is helping me out though.... (what a great guy!!).



but apart from that it's a freaking amazing little box.
:doh:

That ticking definitely isn't right. That almost sounds like the delay is being clocked, and that clock source is leaking (badly) through to the audio output. Does that tick change tempo if you tweak the delay rate?

Don't take my word for this, I'm not 100% sure if AC and DC behave the same way current wise, but with DC powerpacks, if you run a smaller current device on it than the supply current, it's runs fine. The device only takes the current it needs. Whether this is the same with AC, I'm not sure.

no the ticking does not change speed if i change the delay time. or if I change the lfo speed. or if I change the input audio tempo (which will then affect the envelope follower). it does not seem to be related to any setting on the box. it's only audible when something goes through the delay....

thanks for the AC/DC info. It sounds about right and might explain the large warning sticker on the adapter!

man I hate this kind of shit. :bang:

That really is quite odd. Haven't a clue what's wrong there I'm afraid. :(

update - no change in the ticking sound with a dedicated power supply (rather than a step down transformer). looks like it's on it's way back to analog haven :pan:
shawn has been super helpful though...
