Re: Mixing two stereo + mono signal

You might look at the Ladik m160, which can be configured a few ways that might be helpful.

Re: Doepfer A-124 (the Wasp): Adding overtones when fully opened (?)

I’m no wasp expert, nor do I own one at all... But it’s considered a “ dirty “ filter, I believe constructed using a slightly unorthodox design. Indeed, this is kinda the point of the module, and desired behaviour for most users. I suspect what you’re seeing is the normal, non audiophile performance...

Re: Wavefonix Modular System

A buff mult appeared in the post for me in time for Xmas. It’s not in the rack yet, but just to say, the build quality looks and feels awesome straight out of the box. Nice job. I’ll be back for more bits n bobs in the new year for sure.

Re: Decoupled gates from notes in sequencer?

I’m no expert at this level, but I’d assume that the key difference between how sequencers expect and deal with clocks comes down to digital v analogue, and whether clock division/ multiplication are parts of the design. I mentioned transient and Ladik sequencers earlier. They both advance one step ...

Re: Decoupled gates from notes in sequencer?

Transient modules 8s or a Ladik s180/182 combo ( cv sequencers, the Ladik also has a trigger out) will do this fine ( I have both) Euclidean circles will give you plenty of options for triggers and clocks Some sample and holds and a buffered mult will take you beyond decoupling into detripling on mu...

Re: Let's talk about quad-modules (edit: quadules?)

I think one of the things about quad modules is that they support polyphony quite well. If you are building chords and keeping everything separate, you want 4 paths so you can extend chords with 7/9 WHY. That said, I have a quad vco (e370) that I mostly play kinda sorta paraphonically ( 2x2 voices i...

Re: I am overwhelmed by my modules and need some help

On Rings and Clouds, I'd suggest you don't change modes too often, and explore each mode thoroughly before moving on. This maybe applies to Rings hidden modes more than the regular ones, as the regular ones all work much the same.

I found this technique very useful when I first got plaits.

Re: I think the Behringer 130 VCA is DC-coupled

If you have a fixed voltage module, run it into your audio, and send some cv, with the output controlling whatever. You could probably fake it with a square wave and a rectifier too (?)

Edited for clarity because I’m dumb

It’s great to see a new UK based manufacturer. These look really nice, and even though I’m not a fan of odd numbered hp widths, and I’m not really in a buying phase right now, I’ll be in for a couple of utilities to try to show support for a new “ local to me” company. All the best with it!

Unless you actively want to go down the DIY route, the doepfer 138i interrupting mixer does what you want, and more, in 6hp for less than 100 Euro IIRC.

Re: Small sequencers / voltage sources

Yes, you can select the steps freely. It will still run clocked, but all 8 gate steps are on, and can’t be toggled.

Access this mode with button 3 pressed at power on. Make it persist through power cycles with buttons 3 and 4 held together.
