Re: What connectors

Depends on how you choose to connect to it. You could just solder to the pcb, omit the part but then you would have to desolder to remove it. So your illustration looks sort of like a screw terminal but I've never done it that way. https://www.taydaelectronics.com/dg128-screw-terminal-block-3-positi...

Re: Behringer Wasp Clone incoming

Where exactly is the definitive double trigger fix documented on the net. I was over at Gearslutz and I'm seeing two different mods that were photographed and a third that was just written down... which wouldn't be a problem if they all worked 100%, but then I read someone talking about hearing popp...

Re: EML 101 users:post your tips, patches, mods, famous hands/records.

My understanding is the variable waveshape is done by crossfade mixing waves with a center tapped pot - you could mod to get the different waves out individually at the same time. Same with the filter, afaik it's mixing the filter modes not doing some sort of morph. So that sort of combining isn't d...

(Solved) +5 converter on a Tiptop uZeus

Someone threw in a uZeus as part of a deal but someone at some point snapped off the +5v converter (marked U2 on the PCB)

Can someone read me the part number?

Picture shows the part I have missing

many thanks

Re: Newbie Question

the nature of audio waves, from an osc for instance, is if you near instantly start hearing them in the middle of a cycle, meaning not rising or falling from zero, you get a click in your audio. The click can change in volume and disruption, because in most cases the VCO is free-running, the more am...

Re: What is linear FM good for?

People use linear FM to create whole ranges of waveforms other than the outputs on a typical VCO or what one would get by filtering one. That said they aren't necessarily exciting sitting there or even being sequenced. The thing that makes them interesting is the frequency and amplitude of modulatio...

Re: Frequency Shifter

A frequency shifter works by further processing a ring modulator (actually uses two in parallel). A ring modulator produces the combined sum and difference of two frequencies going in. This includes all the harmonic frequencies in the signal. The further processing of the frequency shifter separates...

Re: How many OSC/Voices is too many.

ummm the obvious answer is if you don't use X number of them then you have that number too many. Tomita used 36 similar ones at the same time on his later analog recordings. I couldn't imagine using 36 voices in a single patch, that would give me a headache trying to keep up. I wired up almost all ...

Re: How to use Behringer 173 Quad Gate/Multiples

Don't have one but it's meant to be a voltage controlled switch. The invert gate seems to be poorly labeled, pretty sure it's an in. When the switch is on it passes whatever is in the "in" to the out. Looks like more that +3v to non inverting gate passes the in voltage, less disables it. Looks like ...

Re: Envelope Generators

I find there are a different set of criteria if you are triggering manually (playing yourself) vs Sequencing vs self running patches. It's not like you can't choose a module that will function for all 3, but choices will be an advantage to one and not so much another. When someone says they like a m...

Re: Resonant Equalizers

Every parametric EQ I've encountered are variable frequency and bandwidth. They can cut or amplify. Serge has fixed frequencies, I understand it's the nature of resonance that the bandwidth narrows and amplitude raised as it's fed back.

you have to remember CV is control rather than audio per se, but audio can be used as CV so one has to think in those instances are you going to get a change that you can use if using audio.

Re: how do i do sequenced noise

agree with what is said, sequence a bandpass filter, that may be enough, but adjusting resonance will push things closer to a pitch until the filter self oscillates, at that point you have a sine in your noise for better or worse. Some bandpasses have adjustable width aside from resonance. resonance...
