Re: Best dual-VCO, or better to get two independent VCOs?

imho, VCO "thickness" is cork-sniffing bullshit, at least when it comes to basic waveforms. the differences between basic waves are small, and boil down to volume level, soft saturation, and glitches, all of which can easily be added later in the chain. for standalone VCOs, you should care way more ...

Re: How many modules outside your rack?

i have a few unracked extras. they're either too cheap to bother selling, or stuff i haven't decided about yet. i bought a happy ending kit at some point to be able to quickly test out new purchases and do comparison tests against the gear in the main rack. i like it because it lets me do those thin...

Re: Favorite module that no one knows?

I'd like to add one, that I've been using in almost every patch since I got it, the River Marble . seconded! the tilt function is really nice for shaping feedback patches, and when you crank the internal feedback, it's one of the best sounding saturation modules i've heard. the DIY version is also ...

Re: New intellijel wavefolder/crossfader: bifold

A square through a filter and then into a wavefolder can sound pretty rad though. yeah! anything that messes with phase (like a filter) interacts in fun ways with time-domain effects like wavefolding. i especially like allpass filters, because they produce a signal that sounds identical to the inpu...

I feel like Reverb used to be a much more vibrant marketplace a couple of years ago.
the landscape changed significantly on reverb when they started collecting sales tax on everything. (one year ago? two?)

Re: SPICE vcf vs A-106-5 vs ?

the spice's "XMOD" trick seems to just be a dedicated attenuator for feeding the BP output back into the input. it's a fun trick, but you can do similar with any filter with a separate BP out.

Re: Tube distortion without the tubes

trogotronic makes a wonderful dual tube VCA that seems to not be too crazy powerwise! it sounds great also
the m277 does sound great, but it draws 720mA on the +12V rail unless you use its external power supply.

i really like the L-1 Tube VCA 1Ж24Б and it only draws 12mA/25mA.

Re: Open back headphones

another vote for the drop HD6xx here, and another caution that yes, a decent amplifier makes a difference. personally, the headphones that made me finally sell my old HD580s were the focal elex (also sold by drop). better low-end response, similar character overall to the HD600/HD6xx, and even more ...

Re: Eurorack Saturation

Re: Am I not creative enough or do I miss some important modules?

yeah, having two VCOs opens up a much bigger world of possibilities for sound design on a single voice. you can use one to FM and/or sync the other, or use them both to FM each other, or just use one to FM itself, FM inputs other than pitch, you can detune them, stack 'em harmonically, whatever.

Re: tiny wet fart filter

self-patching a lowpass output back into the FM input gets real wet 'n nasty. looks like the MMF has an attenuverted FM input, so that and a stackable and a clean pair of panties should do the trick.

You don't need a lot of rack space for this.
