Re: Grayscale Permutation: expanded Turing Machine + Voltages

Sounds like it might have some kind of hardware issue, though nobody's reported this before.

Email me via this page http://grayscale.info/orders and I will try to get some more info and troubleshoot. Glad that you have a scope.

Re: New Module Design

Partially this comes down to a lower barrier of entry into making electronics. There are more people making more stuff with lower startup costs and lower expectations for financial returns. So they just make whatever they want because it's fun and they don't have to worry about appealing to a large ...

Re: 4U Panel Colors

Nice module design and concept. I think you'll find that there's no need to reinvent the wheel. The aesthetic has a historical precedent that is part of the appeal for modular users. The Serge grid gives you a good functional density and an easy way to set up your panel layouts in 1" width increment...

Re: Is there no virtual Serge modular?

The issue as I understand it is that Serge doesn't want to see virtualizations of his original designs. That could change. Anyone is free to do their own emulations of course but for a "Serge approved" version that approaches the sound of the hardware, it could be a while. There are plenty of Serge-...

Thanks @xcc and @depaffect – this info about the attenuation is correct. @Bitter Synth: The trig switch only triggers a single grain – a tiny blip of sound whose duration is partially determined by the Size parameter (and the range of Size is determined by the Time/Quality setting).

Yes, there is something you don't understand. Please read the MIT License carefully.

That said, the SMP firmware was published two weeks ago:

Re: switch cap part number for malekko voltage block?

If you're referring to the switches at the bottom, they are probably C&K D6R – available from Mouser, Digikey, or the usual DIY shops. Available in various colors and with two different force ratings: F1 (lighter touch) and F2 (more resistance). I spec the F2 on my modules. Color options, photo from...

Re: The PERFECT Knob resistance

Resistance is an electrical term, the word the OP is looking for is "torque"

I prefer (and spec) vertical-mount pots from Taiwan Alpha, which are widely used by many manufacturers (Make Noise, Cwejman, and others) and available from DIY shops.

Re: Buchla-compatible adaptations of Mutable modules

Thanks for asking. No ETA yet. It's been prototyped but needs another hardware revision. This will be a good addition to the Buchla ecosystem though since it's a bit like having a 6-channel MARF and you can chain up to six units together for 36 "stages" in total.

DAO and MSV will work with the stock firmware. No ETA for the DR and SMP firmware, haven't looked at this code in about two years and need to make sure that what gets published is actually the final working version, that'll take some time.

It's probably not much of a secret but carefully reviewing the full Doepfer lineup can be quite illuminating. Newer brands get all the hype but there are plenty of weird and interesting modules in the Doepfer product line and they don't cost much either.
