Re: FX AID - multi audio effect module

As requested now there are two possible ways to navigate the effects: 1) standard browsing with sequential selection in both left and right directions 2) new browsing option with left button selecting 1 of 4 banks and right button selecting 1 of 8 effects within this bank. Thank you so much Igor--a...

Re: 4ms SMRF: Spectral Multiband Resonant Filter

Getting an SMR wouldn't have been a mistake, but it's quite a bit different than the 296e. In that video, Todd is turning the 296e filters into self-resonating bandpass filters with a feedback loop and the noise floor of the 296e. The SMR works on a similar principle, since it has adjustable resonan...

Re: FX AID - Bank selection suggestion

I find the bank/effect selection method cumbersome. Seems to me navigating to the effect of choice would be a lot faster if the left button stepped through the 4 banks, and the right button stepped through the 8 effects within that bank. Is this something that a firmware update could address? Thank...

Re: How do you make a PWM from a Square? Waveform animation?

@brycecake has the right idea. Start with a triangle or saw and feed into a comparator. If you want PWM, you'll need cv control over the threshold of the comparator.

Re: Battery powered 0CTRL + 0Coast

The ripcords converts 5V to +15V(or other voltages), so something like one of the larger Anker phone charger batteries (20,000 mAH) should work fine. With a battery that outputs +15V, you’d want to use barrel adapter cables, not power converter cables like the ripcords.

Re: FX AID - multi audio effect module

I sold a spare new FX AID for the princely sum of...$200, but I don't know why anyone gets worked up over this stuff. It's not a heart valve or insulin. What if the seller is out of work and the buyer is Jeff Bezos? Anyone can pay list price by waiting a few months at most.

wouldn't it be the same as to connect tip and ring international from a stereo jack?
Yes, you could easily make a bunch by bridging the tip and ring of trs plugs. The insert cables would also be easy to diy.

100% chance Jason includes a set of loopback plugs and insert cables with the module. He already has his own patch cables manufactured, so this isn't a stretch.

Like any chord generating module, it takes some work to make sure everything is melodically consistent. It's all dependent on the input signal, the resonance and frequency of each filter--and how the filters are sequenced. In practice, you're going to start from the SMR or from other oscillators, an...
