Re: Shapeshifter: I’ve tried so hard

One thing that boggles my mind is that damn MOD A input. Yes I get that it's normalized to the osc 1 input... but what I DON'T get is why? Like I've never been able to use that and get anything other that crazy static just totally trashing the Phase of osc 2. What's the catch? And why is it audio r...

Re: Shapeshifter: I’ve tried so hard

If you don’t like it, you don’t like it, but I don’t find it that hard to tame. Re: the combo modes, one thing that makes it a lot more musical is using the quantizer for osc 2 and trying different ratios. Some ratios sound better with certain modes. Small amounts of internal FM help. Subtle modulat...

Re: Pam's vs Tempi in 2020

So the answer, as always, is both. And here I was expecting a raging debate ;) My gut, in this case, feels pretty evenly divided. I almost bought a Pam's a few months ago and then chickened out, then thought about Tempi, but after watching lots of videos of it, it looks like it may not quite live to...

Pam's vs Tempi in 2020

I've been debating between these two modules, looking for something I can use to trigger rhythmically related events in a small system. There are some past threads comparing the two, but I couldn't find anything recent. I feel kind of drawn to Tempi because it looks like it might be more fun to use ...

Re: Need advice for building an ambient system!

Shapeshifter isn’t menu-divey, and it’s great for a small system because it includes a lot of built-in functionality that would require many utilities.

Re: Need advice for building an ambient system!

I have a lot of these modules, and looking at your rack I'd say the one thing I'd want for sure is more mixing, both for combining audio (Shapeshifter sounds great with waves combined) and CV. The Quad VCA is a good mixer, but with all your sound sources you'll use it up quickly.

Re: Stock or Hemisphere Suite for my New Ornament and Crime Module?

Stock has the lowrentz app, which is so good for ambient. I also really like Quantermain and Sequins. Oh, also the bytebeats app is really cool and isn’t in Hemisphere. O&C stock firmware has a bit of an academic feel to it, but it’s kinda part of the charm.

Re: I'm sorry, really, but I'd like your opinions re QPAS or Stereo Dipole or Parallax

I really want to like the QPAS because I love the Make Noise workflow and have some of the matching modules, but every demo I hear of it makes it sound like a chain of Small Stone phasers. It seems like it has a distinctive sound that's hard to escape, and I've found with modules in the past that wh...

Re: New MakeNoise module: Mimeophon

For me, at the higher gain settings noise is sometimes audible, but not always. Using modular-level signals I get pretty much no noise.

Re: Sooooo frustrated with threaded strips

I made my own case, and I had to line up the rails manually and cut my own threaded strips. Without using side brackets, it was really difficult to get it right, but now the modules line up fine. I find the trick is to keep the screws loose until all modules are in place; then you can slightly adjus...

Re: Make Noise 0-Ctrl

Does anybody have the 0-ctrl but not the o-coast? I feel like most people have both. I am wondering if without the 0coast is still possible to use it at its full potential. Anyway, would it make sense to use something like intellijel scales to quantize it? Is it better to quantize it in some way or...

Re: Make Noise 0-Ctrl

I just want to be able to manually retrigger a gate output from a single stage (rather than from GATE ALL) while it is active. e.g. I select stage (key) 7, it outputs its gate. While it is active, I select it again and the same gate signal is sent. etc. For now, I am unable to achieve this relative...

It bothers me when people try to downplay the costs of Eurorack.

Re: Acceptable internal case temperature? (eurorack)

Doubling the size of the escape area to the input will create a much better convective flow. That's not the way a chimney works. Think about it: large fireplace intake, small chimney pot exit. @ sleepmute There are three ways of removing heat: convection, conduction and radiation, but your case can...

Re: Acceptable internal case temperature? (eurorack)

Round 2. I enlarged the holes, making the exhaust double the size of the intake, and and covered them with a wire mesh. Aesthetically it’s much better, and after playing with it for an hour or so I recorded temps of 31 above the PSU and 34 at the exhaust, so 5-7 degrees cooler. Not bad for now. I’ll...

Thanks for the advice. The box is all glued together, but I can probably still cut some bigger holes in it. At the very least I can smooth out and enlarge the exhaust; cutting full-width vents in the back probably isn't practical. I'm certain I read somewhere on this forum that opposite corner vents...
