Re: Behringer Mono/Poly!

As a guy who owned two of the originals for years and used them a LOT (see my videos), I have to say this Behringer doesn't capture any of the sound character at all IMO. It sounds really generic by comparison. OTOH I broke out Korg's virtual version a couple of days ago, and while it lacks all the ...

I used Numerology for most of my videos but I also like Nodal for ambient stuff. Nodal is really strange at first, but it's fun once you get the hang of it. Numerology is super deep and will do just about anything sequence-wise if you know what you're doing.

I just bought the DOD mini-size one and it works fine and seems to be very well built. Good if you're saving space on a pedal board. It has a mode switch for different uses. I also have the Yamaha which is physically large and has a long sweep. The Moog one has a shorter sweep. that matters dependin...

I have the similar problems with my Fourmulator on a Tiptop studio bus power system. I think the problem is a mismatch between how the Tiptop power behaves and what the Fourmulator expects. Tiptop does a kind of soft start where the power lines come on sequentially. This seems to confuse the hell o...

Vermona issues

I have a QMI 2 and a Fourmulator and have had problems with both. My system works perfectly except these two modules. The Fourmulator powers on about half the time. When it powers up it works fine, when it doesn't it's 100% dead. I have 2 TipTop Zeus power supplies that are way over-spec'd- plenty o...

Do you have your euro on modular grid? I'd love to see what a 5U'r does when confronted w/ the overwhelming variety in euro. Thanks for all the nice comments!

I miss 5U

I have a pretty nice Eurorack system but I have almost zero motivation to fire it up. It's not the sound, it's just the feel or aesthetic or something- hard to define. Unfortunately with my current studio situation there's not really any room for a 5U system like I used to have. Not sure if I'm kind...

I understand the problem differently; I don't think it's about the shapes. gis_sweden if you want a 2 second rise and fall of the volume with an ADSR you need to provide at least a 1 second gate for the rise/attack portion to complete. If your gate is too short, the envelope will abort the attack p...

there are a couple minor issues like one module not being able to hit a high enough voltage to fully trigger a CV input on another module. Signal processors let you amplify and attenuate stuff to prevent this, so it's good to dedicate a couple slots to them if you plan to mix formats You can also m...

I am SO PUMPED about clocked delays. I was very disappointed when I got the Z-DSP and found out that there were no clocked delays. In my old 5U system I used those constantly with the Modcan dual delay and really missed that functionality. This approach is quite different though - I'm looking forwa...

I use the different lengths=different colors approach. I can reach into my cable drawer and know exactly what length I'm getting by color. I do have some braided black cables someone sent with an order that (dare I say) are sexy.

I do what youre talking about and have always liked the Modcan FMVDO. I don't think of it as pad material, though TBH. People have radically different ideas of what 'pad' means though. When I think of pads I think of chords on polyphonic (mostly) analog keyboards.
