I'm pretty pedestrian with mine. Slow LFOs to the wavetable position or plucky envelopes. Been messing with the FM mode lately to get some pretty gnarly sounds, especially patched through a wavefolder.
NLC Sloth is such a win for these kind of applications. :tu:
Yes! :sb:

Re: Vectrex Monitor Modification

Yes, sir! The other day I was playing the sequence from Pink Floyd's On the Run (E3, G3, A3, G3, D4, C4, D4, E4 @166bpm) through the Vectrex and could clearly hear it, although it sounds filtered to only include sound above 7000Hz or such, profoundly irritating and painful!

Re: Vectrex Monitor Modification

Here is an example. The sound can be a lot higher pitched though and that’s where it bugs me.

Could it be leaking through the speaker somehow?

Re: Vectrex Monitor Modification

I had a Vectrex modded for me yesterday. I respect everyone who can DIY it, but that’s not me. The directions for how we did this are here. http://www.lumpybanger.com/blog/hacking-vectrex I’ve had beautiful results, BUT I also hear a very high pitched squeal. I do not believe that it is the speaker,...

Re: Minimum modules needed to produce sound

It all depends on what your musical interest is. I found both the Mother-32 and the 0 Coast limited and not what I wanted. In contrast, you could keep me entertained for eons with a Synthesis Technology e352 or two Makenoise Telharmonics that I could send beating against each other. I'd strongly urg...

Re: new Synthi inspired machine coming from Erica Synths

Not so noble. Just being up front about their circuitry I guess. We all pick and choose who we think do things the right way. It looks like a solid machine. I also like the overall package of the Macbeth Elements which has some EMS inspiration. It is such a wonderful time to be a synthesis. So many...

Re: Shipping modular overseas to yourself

Yeah, the last time I brought a modular with me, the TSA agent wanted to have a conversation about it...Wanted to know if there were percussion modules available since he was a drummer. A few years back a TSA agent chased me down at the airport to talk to me about my Leica. He wanted one and wanted ...

Re: Modular Wild- A new Eurorack Video Show

I sure miss Raul's World of Synths. I came late into it, but there's never been a more thorough presentation of modules, particularly of the vaunted Doepfer gear. Raul Pena III, wherever you are, I hope you are well.

Re: SSF Stereo Dipole filter

I just installed my new filter and was surprised by the huge amount of clipping and noise. Is there something wrong with my module or am I missing something?

I just got the pack. As expected, some of the albums are unbelievable, and some are awful (basically the ones with chanting). A wonderful re-introduction to a band I first encountered on WRPI in the 1980s on an old Zenith tube radio.

I missed the box set, but I purchased the pack of LPs from Soundohm. They are way behind on shipping apparently, I hope they do ship eventually (I don’t have any experience with them and that’s a bad first sign in my book). There’s no box or T Shirt, which is probably for the best.

Since this is drifting a little merrily off topic, in response to the query about Eurorack and video synthesis, one thing I have mentioned at LZX’s community site is that the rjmodules package on VCVrack has a range module and a range LFO. Both allow you to limit cv ranges to 0-1, allowing for trans...

Speaking of nothing out of place, this is one of the tightest “live” video performances ever. And watch Greg Hawkes at the start. What an inspiration. Many more years for him.
