Re: What Amp / Monitors do you use in your home for Synth?

There is a wide variety of good powered nearfield monitors that work well for mixing. It just depends on your budget and how much power & low end you want. Go to Sweetwater.com or vintageking.com and check out the selection. Anything from M-Audio & Mackie for a hundred bucks a pair to Genelec, Focal...

Re: Beebo: A virtual modular guitar pedal

i like that it has 4 ins and 4 outs, freely assignable. i like the UI. can it handle audio rate modulations of the FX? i saw a video where a synth patch was eating up about 77% of the CPU. i wish someone would make something like this with 10x the processing power, so i could do entire crazy multit...

Re: What module takes in LFO’s and only outputs the positive voltage?

Thanks everyone.This is something I've wanted for a while and now at least I know what to look for. Can the 4MS SISM flip the negative to a positive? In other words could it make a sine wave look like the big M from the McDonalds sign? Or does it just cut out the signal when it hits 0V on the way d...

Re: What module takes in LFO’s and only outputs the positive voltage?

I’d like to be able to take an LFO and only modulate a parameter up and back down to where I have things set at on the module the LFO is affecting. Maybe I’m overlooking a very simple solution here? Yup, as others have pointed out, you are asking about adding a DC offset to a bipolar LFO, so it cha...

Re: What module takes in LFO’s and only outputs the positive voltage?

A 'clipper' module that allows you to set the clip threshold can also do this. Like a Dotcom Q130. Set it to clip just pos or just neg, and set the clip amount to 'max' so it clips off everything above, or everything below, the zero volt line, effectively turning it into a half wave rectifier.

Re: Nord Modular thread

Are you able to assign patch parameters (virtual knobs in a module on the screen) to the 16n hardware controller, and use the controller to change the parameter, i.e. sweep filter cutoff etc.? To make sure the graphic Editor, the synth, and the hardware controller are all working together, assign a ...

It only allows you to select 1 because you only have one nord modular. The other three boxes on that screen are for setting up your graphic editor to control multiple nord modulars from one graphic editor program (switching between the synths using a tab in the editor). They are not for setting mult...

That window is only for setting up the connection between the synth and the graphic editor program that is installed on your PC. It is not used for connecting midi keyboards or midi controller boxes to the synth. If you only have one Nord Modular, there should only be one of the four ports used. And...

Re: THE SEARCH FOR A NEW FILTER

Keep in mind that any filter that provides multiple outputs on separate jacks (HP/BP/LP) can be made to smoothly transition from one to the next even if the filter module doesn't have this feature built in. Just connect the various outputs to one or more crossfaders. Doing this also lets you do craz...

Have you calibrated your filter's 1v/oct mod inputs?
User manuals for the filters that don't track don't have calibration info, how would i go about that?
Is there a trim pot on the PCB labeled "1v/oct"?

If you are ok with opening it, check the location of the wires to & from the reverb tank and verify they are not too close to either the switching power supply or any of the MIDI circuitry. If there is a lot of slack in those cables, maybe they have moved closer to these sources of digital noise. I ...

Or use wood rails, like in a Dotcom studio cabinet, and pre-drill new mounting holes for MOTM spacing (or any other spacing you might need). That's what I did to add some MOTM modules to my MU rig.
