Re: Serge ÷NCOM Comparator vs...?

/ncomp is a great module. It is quite different from the SSG in that it doesn't produce ramps of any sort. The divide section is just a variable pulse divider up to 31 steps. Depending on how it is set up you get an interesting rising staircase from the divider when the comparator threshold is met. ...

Re: Does Serge make sense for Noob?

My very first modular was a serge and I've always loved them. I have had moments of madness where I've sold a system and flirted with euro or buchla or wiard 300 but I've always come back to serge. The sound is the most obvious reason, they sound incredible on a small or large sound system. The inte...

I am totally indifferent to notch filters and haven't really gotten much of an interesting sound out of them. Maybe I should spend time patching with mine today and see if I can change my mind.
Mixing the VCFQ notch with the dry signal makes a very nice phaser + modulation of filter.

Re: Serge boats - compatibility with Loudest Warning screws

As long as we are getting compatibility with R*S 4x4 as well as STS Shop and M-class panels - could we also be compatible with the Loudest Warning mounting design? I mentioned about LW format on the Facebook post. It seems lots of 4U builders follow the LW format which I believe is Eurorack rails b...

If you are starting out try to pick up a couple of STS M-class like the creature and gator. RS is great, something like a mantra will take you far. If you have more of an idea of exactly what you want go to LoudestWarning for a completely custom system.

Four "expensive" panels from STS today will average about $7500-9500. Interesting. Where do you got these prices from? These look more like prices for used panels via Reverb. Earlier this year I saw STS offering panels for about 3000-5000 each, I believe. Yeah, an expensive 4 panel sts system will ...

I am not too familiar with the Elektron line. For the most part, do those attributes being listed for the MD apply to the current offering in the Analog Rytm MKII? Thanks No, the MD is in my opinion the best thing elektron ever made, closely followed by the monomachine and octatrack. The Analog Ryt...

Re: Machinedrum vs TR8S

Is the Roland TR8S basically a modern incarnation of the MD? Is the MD still a better product than the Roland? The MD is very different to the TR8s. The synthesis on the MD goes far beyond what the TR8s does but I would say the MD never quite nails the old TR-x0x machines perfectly. The TR8s will g...

Replies: 4

Yeah, the first and last are easy to do, then I guess you could do some smart logic stuff with those two to get the middle (1-3V). Set one comp to 1v then invert this output with a NOT gate. It will only be on when the voltage is below 1v. Another comparator just needs to be set to 3v and once a vol...

Set your low value and high value on two different comparators, then send the low value and the logic inversion of the high value to an AND gate. On a single comparator, I don't think it's possible as a window needs two threshold values. One comparator would be like a single runged ladder, i.e. not ...

The STS divider is different in functionality (I think), IIRC it holds high for a greater period of time. The CGS one goes back to 0v after one clock cycle, which is a very specific thing I wanted in my divider. Also, if you ask certain people very nicely you can have diodes on your pulse outputs, t...

I don't have the RS one in my system, I do need to perform that upgrade. From what I heard the RS version is even more accurate as Serge himself redesigned it for modern components.
