Re: behringer 3-day countdown to ...

I'm too lazy to look for it:
Do the original 100 modules have the same groups of functions?
'Cause there's some good function combinations put side by side on some single modules (from what I can see on the video).

Hello, Hijacking the thread, question about noise levels. I'm a macbook user, and I plug it into a external screen (4k capable, but I'm not running at 4k).

I would first start to string it to see if I like to play it, or if it could be useful (alternate tunings, electronic curiosity), even in it's ugly state. That could save you some time.

Note: the dremel "press" is useless for pretty much everything that has to be precise.

Someone is going to say that's it's their favorite ...

My generally -unpopular- opinion: consider a proper bantham patchbay.

I know it's a pain to set up (possibly a lot of soldering, or unusual connectors), but it will last you a life time and can arranged however you want it.

Funny thing is I do own an AFG, and I got both 137-1 & 2. I don't think the "variations" provided by the AFG (matter/antimatter, wave animation) overlap with the 137 when it comes to create complex waveforms. Plus, it's not like you can input stuff in the animation circuit of the AFG. The combinatio...

One thing to note: this is 5052 alloy aluminum, which can be bent like this. The more common 6061 aluminum doesn't take a bend as well and may crack along the outer radius of the bend.

Unfortunately, you need a computer to plug in the seaboard, and therefore some MIDI to CV interface on top if you want to control modules.
The seaboard is not an independent MIDI device.

Grain size automation:
=> Not directly from the automation lanes.
=> Not mappable from a drum rack.

Maybe there's a work around, but I can't see it.
Something tells me it would be CPU intensive/latency inducing if you where to recalculate grain size continuously when samples are playing.

Still it was the bees knees when it came out. The cards (additional outs, extra filters and effects) were outrageously expensive.
