Filter envelope can modulate osc2 pitch, if that's what you mean? That's demonstrated on the video around 4:40
I’ll watch it and learn. Thanks for replying

Re: SERGE licensing questions.

Wasn’t there a recent “moment” just before the RS deal was announced (I’m not no Facebook so I didn’t see it)? As above, probably best left alone. How about developing the idea instead?

Re: PROGUE - Analog mono synth

Any chance of sync via contour as that’s a killer feature?

. The four outputs on each division of the master divider are 90 degrees out of phase which makes for some very cool uses. Its also really hypnotic :woah:

That WILL make for some interesting offsets and timings. I must investigate.

mixer/filter panel for full 4U panel (7x17"). stereo mixer will have 1/4" jacks on the back of the boat for connection to patchbay/interface, etc. .....err.......not much.

Not 100% happy with the SOST Flanger layout, will probably user bigger knobs at least, so if you have any ideas I'...

Re: Coloured panels on DIY modules...

A 4U pseudo paper face in white? Some available modules. Otherwise I’ve been happy with Schaeffer. I did traditional Leeds United blue panel with yellow bits. The Serge stuff has been white and grey metal panels, with white knobs for white and grey for grey. Blue caps for inputs and yellow for outs....

Re: Can someone please show me the wiring for a passive LPF?

This might sound harsh, but ... learn how to read a simple schematic. It's much more precise than trying to use words to describe a circuit, and the schematic for a passive LPF with input and output jacks is ridiculously simple. Considering the solution, not so harsh! This is the DIY section. I thi...

Re: broken headphones

@ashleym these are b&w p5. Over 10 years old. Does sennheiser carry replacement parts for 10 year old headphones? If so, I'll gladly consider them for my next pair. :) B&W shouldn’t be too bad for spares but I’ve known of too many failing although I might need to understand the difference between d...

Re: 4u Bantam format considerations

A question of genuine interest. I'm wondering how accessible TT is to the common amateur DIY synth builder. You are right about tarnished contacts on all connectors requiring occasional cleaning with Deoxit or similar. I am wondering about how TT compares in terms of strain relief, cable quality, a...

Maybe an idea of what you want would help. Do you want a 19” rack or a desktop enclosure? With a keyboard? Flight case standard? Basic project box?

I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him. My life would have been very different. He’s given me a life of listening to his music. Making music. Building synths. A career in audio. We even called our Mercedes florian

I made this case yesterday.
Not perfect, but I'm quite happy with the result.

I had so many built modules around, now they have a place.
That’s got a :nana: :nana: from me. Nice mix of LW/CGS and Slightly Nasty. Do they all work well together? When will the mysterious module get finished?

by "the mains" do you mean placing the switch just after the secondary from the transformer?
In the UK we almost always have switches on our wall mains sockets. You can leave things plugged in to a wall socket but “switch them off at the mains”
