Re: FX AID - multi audio effect module

I will try again but I'm quite sure attenuating fixes the noise. Isn't it weird the input must be attenuate ? Is it common in eurorack ? It just depends on the levels of the signal. Since it is a modular synth, there are lots of ways that a signal could be 'too hot' for the next module in the chain...

Re: Favorite 80s rack mount digital reverb?

Have you considered an Eventide 2016?

It's an EXCELLENT reverb-only device, very flexible yet still very simple to operate, with zero menu diving.

Re: Korg PS-3200 60 pin connector cable

Where did you get the info that Korg's part number for the cable assembly is PS 3001? If this cable is a catalog item (as opposed to being custom built especially for Korg), that same source may be able to tell you the cable assembly manufacturer's name and their internal part number. But if it isn'...

Re: d50 / m1 flute sound

The 'inharmonic String Modeling' mode in the MI Plaits module can be used to do this at certain settings of the Timbre/Harmonics/Morph controls. The Harmonic control can be modulated to regulate the 'overblow' effect. I've also done lots of patches that use this technique on the Nord Modular and Nor...

Re: Kurzweil K2700

Maybe I just haven't found the info, but is there any kind of visual patch editor offered by Kurzweil (not a third party) for the 2700? I appreciate synths with deep architectures but I'm not a fan of menu diving on the synth hardware.

Re: Panning with LFO while skipping/not sounding the mid

Patch the signal to two VCAs, one panned left, one right. Use a bipolar LFO for the CV. Control the left VCA with this. Invert the CV to control the right VCA. A-Ha! Well done. And it occurs to me that you can then use the VCA 'Initial Gain' control on the two VCAs to control how much the volume wi...

Re: Panning with LFO while skipping/not sounding the mid

If you want the sound to move slowly between the left & right, but also to get quieter when it is in the 'middle' (which is actually just coming out of both speakers, there is no actual "middle") here's one way to do it: 1. You need two sine LFOs, one to control the L/R panning as usual, and another...

Re: My oscillators are bullies

I´m just guessing, but wouldn´t a non active multiplies behave something like that, if there are too many oscillators? And Always use three for lead sounds. Yes, some CV converters work better than others in this respect. Some can only drive two oscs before the CV signal starts to get unstable, som...

Re: My oscillators are bullies

No, but it's unlikely that it's the length of the analog CV cables either. It is more likely something like unreliable output from one of the midi/cv converters due to too many oscs, unbuffered mult to get the signal to the oscs, etc. Try this - First, once you have done enough swapping between the ...

Re: Does a module like this exist?

I think what you are looking for is a crossfading MUX. The SSL Seguencer is a four-channel module that does this. There are also some quad panner/crossfaders that can do this, by crossfading in a 'circle' pattern to emphasize each of the four inputs one at a time. I don't know of anything that does ...

I've found that once you start seriously patching (and that's why we're here right?) you end up with a rat's nest no matter how you arrange your modules. I tried a number of times to come up with a logical arrangement but it actually makes little difference once the control signals start flying. Yu...

I really wonder why they chose the VCS3 over the AKS form factor, it is nice but the briefcase version would be much more useful for travel and gigs
I am wondering the same thing. Seems like an odd choice. Unless they have already decided to offer both.

I suppose it depends whether you value having a 'collectable' item or just prefer to have a newer and possibly more reliable version.

An air raid siren produced two pitches, tuned a major third apart. For example tune one saw osc to "C" and tune another to "E". Patch them both through a lowpass filter and roll off the high end. Add slow up/down pitch bend, either manually or with a slow LFO applied to both oscs. Crank up the rever...
