Re: Best MS20 style filter for Eurorack?

AFAIK the Manhattan Analog MA35 is supposed to be a faithful recreation of the MS20's filter and VCA. My understanding is it's recreating the MS-10's filter and VCA, and the MS-20's early filter was the same as the MS-10. I don't know if the MS-20 has a similar VCA to the MS-10. Right, the MS10.

Re: Higher end/vintage small mixers

http://www.speck.com/viafader/viafader.html I have the Speck X.Sum and while it's very good, it has a sound that may or may not work for you.

Re: Clock dividers good at frequency division

The STG .COM is bipolar and is designed to work as a sub oscillator (and PWM generator). The NLC Divide & Conquer you mention is unipolar but the odd divisions (by 3, 1.5, 5, 2.5, 7 and 3.5) are awesome for generating harmonics that can be mixed to taste. Basically any CMOS divider should work. Avoi...

Re: Eurorack output damage on monitors and headphone ?

I'd think the mixer is AC coupled? @OP - what frequencies are giving you trouble? I'm teaching myself to turn the sound off when I don't need it, which is most of the time actually. I'm debugging my patches with a scope, which is the way to go anyway, and turning the sound on when I have a patch run...

Re: how was i using a eurorack without a matrix switch??

Switches are a must imo, i can be without VCA's pretty much, but i've used switches since i started with eurorack. The small doepfer ones are great if you don't need a full blown matrix. I use them all the time, more than my SSM i have to say because they're way more immediate and doesn't need any ...

Re: Tube distortion without the tubes

I know you're asking about a eurorack module but personally I don't find much use in having CV control over distortion. On top of that, there are so many more options with pedals and outboard equipment. Speaking of pedals, and modules , the Fuzz Factory is amazing and covers huge range. Another grea...

Re: Best MS20 style filter for Eurorack?

Isn´t the Filter in the Verbos Amp and Tone an MS20 Sytle one? The Verbos is 6db/oct and MS20 is 12 db/oct. Both are Sallen Key filters, meaning they share the same topology / design concepts, but so do many other filters. Steiner-Parker filters such as the Forbidden Planet, Livewire Frequensteiner...

Re: Using the synth to mask background noise

The fan-based boxes actually work well, until the motor starts squeaking. In a dusty environment, this will only take a couple of weeks.

They don't cover much range, but that's not the point of these devices anyway.

Wowow! All 22 Environments albums are available for download on the Apple and Android app stores. The entire soundtrack is encoded in the app, no need for a network connection once it's installed and it costs next to nothing.

The bit about noise cancelling headphones causing or aggravating tinnitus is a myth. It simply doesn't happen. Tinnitus sounds louder in quiet surroundings. Maybe they hear their already existing tinnitus better when there is no environmental sound drowning it out. But there is no causal effect. An...

Re: Replacing a MS-20 power supply with an international 100v/120v/240v PSU?

Personally I’d leave the vintage synth alone and get one of the excellent clones to travel with. Less bulk, less worries, no issues with the iffy CV keyboard that’s a pain to keep in good operating condition (at least mine was), easier to replace if it gets broken or stolen and you’ll have a much ea...

Re: Using the synth to mask background noise

Adding noise on top of noise can only do so much. Might be time to order up some noise canceling headphones. They Sony's I have are pretty amazing in creating a "cone of silence." You can also use them in the studio and hear more of your music without having to turn up louder than might be healthy....

Or a CMOS counter through a DAC, if you can find one with a reasonable signal to noise ratio. The Drezno isn't it, I have a VERT on order, I hope it performs better.
