Re: WMD Javelin - new Envelope generator/amplitude modulator

So after a bit of a delivery snafu, I finally got mine in. And this thing is *nice*. I was in the market for a ADSR w/ integrated VCA anyways, so this was already in my wheelhouse. But the Accent thing is *brilliant*. It's such a neat way to add some dynamics to a line. Combining a slow rhythmic mod...

Re: Ensemble Oscillator from Matthias Puech & 4ms Company

To reiterate - it's fairly clear that EnOsc is good for animated pads and chordal, organ-like drones, etc. ... How does it sound in a staccato/percussive, enveloped, or low pass gated way? Do the Scale banks (10) act as fixed chords which can be cycled through using the CV input on the bottom of th...

Re: Friendly Rant on Lack of Vertical Case Designs

There's also the issue where a bunch of less-wide rows means it's going to be harder to fill them perfectly and you're going to be more likely to end up with unusable HP. I.e. 2 104hp rows vs 4 52 rows: the 4 row solution has more "hard borders" that divide up the HP.

Re: Envelopes vs. matrices - what would YOU do with your last 20HP?

It's 22hp, but Zadar (w/o expander) + Maze gives you a *bonkers* amount of utility for the space they take up. Zadar is so incredibly useful, not just for volume envelopes but also for funky modulation of just about anything (so...many...shapes...). And Maze has a bit of a learning curve (and the ve...

Re: Magneto vs Lúbadh vs ?? for sound-on-sound looping?

unfortunately it's another pedal, but have you checked out the Blooper? It's a looper where you can "bake in" the onboard effects with each overdub, from filters, to pitch/time shifts, to stability, jumble & dropouts, etc. So if you leave the effects on, with each pass the loop will get more and mor...

Re: Non linear circuit low down

I think a Hypster makes a perfect compliment to the Triple Sloth, I think I use the Hypster in almost every patch I make. Let's Splosh and Numberwang are both a bit more 'specific', but when you need or want what they do they're fantastic.

Re: Rack Review

So are you basically using Maths all the time as an envelope generator (or also you also press-ganging PNW into envelope duties as well)? Given you've got the Hertz and the Chord, it seems like something that gives you a bit more envelope control (and more envelopes period) might be useful; it'd als...

Re: Akai S950 Sampler Sound - ALM MUM M8 and samplerate-reduction?

If you've got a modular-to-pedal interface, also checkout the Ottobit Jr pedal from Meris. Doesn't do timestretching or repitching, but if you're looking for bitcrushing & sample rate reduction, it's fantastic. It also has a decent filter and a fun "glitch" parameter, along with a funky up-to-6-step...

Re: I'm sorry, really, but I'd like your opinions re QPAS or Stereo Dipole or Parallax

Compared to the Stereo Dipole, you might think of the QPAS as something between a filter and a resonator. It can do basic filtration, but if you turn the Q up you really get into more resonance than original signal and you're hearing far more QPAS than VCO. Now, the ability to play with that resonan...

I've held off on it only because I'm not sure different diodes add that much of a difference. They actually make a massive difference. Even if you didn't use the "open" slot on the Crime expander and stuck with the five pre-installed ones, the range of different sounds they make is very broad and b...

Re: Most Lush Dripping Wet Chorus Pedal?

The OBNE Visitor is a double effect pedal with a primary Phaser / Chorus / Tremolo and a secondary Chorus / Tremolo. So you could Chorus your Chorus, so to speak (although I've generally run it Phaser - Chorus).
