Demo Of TraniModule

Post by Flux302 » Fri Aug 30, 2013 2:14 pm

First thing let me say it sounds great and is very useful. I have been using it with my Ipad and also my samplers to trigger odd envelopes in my set up and also using it as a nice way to mess about at night when I don't want to have my monitors on. So I went head and Put this thing through its paces here

Thanks :tu:
Flux's video is awesome. I love how he uses the iPad to the Line In/Line Out on the TrAniModule to modulate the filter. That's music to my ears.

The name is a little uncool... Kind of like making a module name out of a racial slur...

I understood what you were trying to post, I was wondering why you decided to post it though.

Also, there's a bunch of boxes underneath the message form. One of them says "Disable smilies" and I think it's checked by default. If you uncheck it it should work :guinness:

apologies if you were joking - it can be hard to tell just reading text.

8-)
It's a TRANsistor based amplifier built by ANIModule
Transistor + AniModule = TrAniModule
:yay:

Why am I uncool? And I have to say that the name isn't particularly funny. If someone were to come out with a "Voltage Controlled OsciNigger," would it just be hilarious joke?

I understand what the "joke" is supposed to be, it's just highly insensitive (as well as just not funny or clever). "Tranny" is a derisive slur used against trans* individuals, who already have a hard enough time in our society (1 in 12 trans* people will be straight up murdered, and "tranny" is probably one of the last words they hear before they're killed).

I'm sure no harm was meant by it, just letting you know that it's pretty uncool.

it's TrAniModule not TrAnnyModule
As in Transistor-amplifier-Animal-Module
I assure you, the last thing I want to do is offend anyone or be insensitive :hug:

Love to hear it if you have a cooler suggestion :tu:

the real joke is this: "Estimated price: $129.99" ;-) i have a few high end amps that cost 20$ but of course they dont include a chinese toy speaker. im probably the only one who thinks this is another overpriced eurohype module but there you go ;-)

Well, it sure sounded like the joke was that it sounded similar to "tranny," especially since you put that "that's right, say it out loud :hihi:" bit at the beginning of the thread.

Haha, I don't... Actually, I've always had a miserable time trying to come up with cool names! Half of the tracks that I've made are just random space-themed words :lol:

Me too! AnVilope? What is that? It's a great little module, but the name, c'mon! :hihi:
Came up with a decent name for the TrAniModule and got back to work on the important stuff ;)

Ouchy! :(

Those $20 amplifiers are probably being mass produced in a factory somewhere.
This module has ~ $20 worth of Components in it alone.
That's not including the Front Panel, which is milled in shop and screen printed by hand OR the assembly time (assembled and handwired in shop).

The idea is that it liberates you from dragging around an auxiliary amp/speaker. Don't feel like going in to the studio and turning on your whole rig? pull your cabinet out to the couch and have a little noodle while you're watching the gong show.
Want to have a little jam on the deck while you're drinking your frappuccinotini and watching the sunset but don't feel like hauling out your amp and powerstrip? TrAniModule makes it easy.

Even if you're at your studio and hooked up to your monitors it won't just sit like a lump taking up unused space in your cabinet. There is a Mixer, a Line Input/Output (to boost your line signals to Modular levels) and can be used as a transistor distortion.

the TrAniModule a handy toolkit in an 8HP space for a VERY reasonable price.
if anything it's underrated. Most people that get it end up wanting more than 1 ;)

Is "tranny" really as bad as "nigger"? I didn´t know that, but I don´t live in the US.. And would it be possible to name it otherwise when it is sort of begging for the transvestite-transistor association AND it is made by AniModulte? I mean, is "transvestite" also a bad word and is it bad to give something like a Eurorack module the persona of a Trans gender person? (What is the correct non-offending term?) I don´t think Transvestimodule, Trans-AniModule, Transimodule or TransistorAnimodule works as well as TrAniModule...

I have never been teased or harrassed because of my sexual preferences, being born in the wrong body, or the colour of my skin or my religion so I would not know how people that have felt these things feel, but... c´mon! Do we have to be political correct all the time? I kinda hope someone makes a module called "The pale fat Viking with 1st world problems" with a picture of me on it so I can use that as my argument next time there is a debate like this.

Also I wish I knew a Transvestite (hope it is ok to use that word?) that I could ask what he or she felt about a eurorack module being called TrAniModule, because I think the name of the module together with the artwork and the speaker is cool as hell and I really want one!
