Re: OTO BIM vs Tape delay

I think a lot of the fun with tape delays is the live noodling and knob turning. Aside from the obvious sound differences I look at BIM as more of a set and forget type delay. If I get another tape style delay it will probably be a Volante or something similar. I’ve had the RE-201, 301, Fulltone SS ...

Re: OTO BIM vs Tape delay

I do like the sound of the T-Rex delay, it seems to capture the heart of a good tape delay. Id buy one. The Fulltone Tube Tape delay sounds incredible too I decided to grab a T-Rex--pretty good price from JRR shop. Even though most demos i found were guitar-based (blah) I could definitely hear "tha...

Re: Polyend Tracker

To all you Polyend Tracker users out there: do you think this is a sound investment to make, bugs and all? I would mostly be using it with my eurorack system, but would also enjoy loading a bunch of samples on it, grabbing a USB power brick (hopefully that would work OK with this?) and sitting down...

i tend to be pretty dumb with shit like this.
My easily distracted mind found the simple online manual on the Polyend site with the short video tutorials the most helpful. Some of the YouTube videos are a bit long winded/too much info in one place for me.

Re: Buying and selling on reverb - weird flipping?

If it’s buyers’ remorse, consider yourself lucky they’re flipping it at a loss. I’ve gotten buyers who play something for a couple of days, claim it’s broken and then make me pay for return shipping (after I’ve already spent on outbound shipping) and then the module / pedal arrives back home not-br...

Re: Synth Tech e520 Hyperion Stereo Audio Processor

Mine arrived yesterday as well! Spent some time playing my Erebus through the chowder, prime and multi tap algorithms. They sound great and I’m excited to learn how everything works. I’m also impressed with how useful and tasteful the presets are..great starting points!

Re: Dreadbox - Typhon

Yeah the patch bay is handy and a nice alternative to a mod matrix/menu. I’ve used it a fair amount on its own and plan to incorporate some outside modulation as well. Nyx seems more suited to complex experimental sounds and Erebus seems a little more straight forward. I can let you know more after ...

That confused me a bit at first too. I believe there can be 7 destinations per modulator.

Off to get a new cable - looks relatively standard, though I don't remember what the one end is called that is more squarish... It’s A to B. I highly recommend the Chroma Cables. They’re specifically designed to filter noise. They’re expensive as far as usb cables go, but I think they’re worth it. ...

i was referring to the ability to set tracks to different meters like track one 16 steps, track two 7 steps and have them phase in and out of the starting relationship. This is easily done between tracks 1-4 and even a polymetric mode for drum tracks on track 1. You should check out the Loopop tuto...

Re: What's Your pick for a standalone, sub $300.00 usd, used or new, synth

I got a barely used Dreadbox Typhon for less than $300. I think it’s a great little standalone box. I love the sound of the oscillators, filter and FX. Knobs where they’re needed and a very easy to navigate menu for the rest. The sequencer is pretty easy and fun to use and can be powered from a powe...

Been having so much fun playing this synth that I’ve decided to grab a 2nd one!

Only bummer so far is when I decided to update from 1.0 and realized that I can’t with my old Mac running 10.13. Will have to wait until my son is done with school for the day so I can borrow his Windows computer.
