Re: Strings and saw waves

Over the winter I experimented with trying to get a real string sound. I didn’t have some tools I wish I did (i.e., FFB). I did pretty much what you said – different saws (and sometimes the same saw split several ways) but a little bit of square going through three different filters. One saw was als...

Today the last video online, last track from the Patch & Tweak Vol.2 series. Out may 15 on Bandcamp!

Pretty cool. The sounds reminds me of Ray Lynch, though of course it is darker overall.

Re: Post your NEW 5U Audio and Videos here

The other day I was watching Dr. Sleep and listening to the ominous heartbeat sound (used first in The Shinning). I thought "I can do that" and came up with the following heartbeat. Then I felt like adding some respiration. Then an EKG. It's not finished yet but I wanted to share what I've got so f...

Re: ADSR - Individual CV control for each function - Necessity?

I do use it a lot, though, admittedly, usually just on the attack for articulation. Also, admittedly, I don't use it enough. I want my synth to have the expression capabilities of an acoustic instrument, and that means being able to control everything. It's a modular, modular means control.... I'm n...

Re: Rich, expansive sounding synth

There are a lot of clones out there and there seems to be more every day. The clones, from the new KARP 2600 to the dreaded "B" company, all sound great. On the modular side, I love, love the way my Mos-Labs 901's sound. Nothing modern comes close. I don't know about poly-synths yet, but there will ...

Re: Post your NEW 5U Audio and Videos here

I have started a new project. Quick background: years ago, I studied composition. As I have been building my modular, rework/rearrange some of my “classical” compositions has been at the back of my mind, yet so far I’ve mostly just done silly ditties. OK, on to the project. As a star, I decided to t...

Starting around 0:18 my guess is a slide guitar through a tape echo.

Re: Noob getting into 5U

At any rate, that experience has gotten me interested in building a small, portable MU system that would complement my Eurorack, but that also could be used as a stand-alone synth. And so I have a few of questions: First, how do you all typically interface your MU system with your sound system? Do ...
