Re: Morphagene EOSG gate

Tip: when you ask a eurorack specific module question, you often get more responses if you post it in the eurorack forum. Some of the best wigglers never come over to this forum, and only read and post there.

Re: Power one modular supply problems

I wouldn't worry about that, it's really close to the voltages you want (assuming you want -+15v).

Re: Deckard's Dream

That's an obvious build problem - it's unclear if you have a version made by a DIY-er or a factory made unit bought second hand. Whichever, it needs to go back to whoever built it to be fixed.

Re: Deckard's Dream

if i understand correctly a ring mod has two inputs (signal and carrier).. so how would this work with the mono output signal of the dd? thanks :) It uses the DDRM for one of the tones, and generates it's own carrier, which is controlled via the speed fader and also the the ADSR if you have it hook...

Re: KORG miniKORG 700FS

I played with a guy who had one of these in several bands back while I was in college at Oberlin (late 70's). In his hands it was capable of some really great sounds. I've often contemplated getting one of these used - they used to be readily available for next to nothing. This price is kind of high...

Re: Deckard's Dream

The expander should work with the mk2 DDRM - the expander port isn't used for connecting it. Screen Shot 2021-01-17 at 10.49.10 PM.jpg BTW I said "should" because I don't have a mk2, haven't tried it.

Re: Favorite stereo output module?

I'm using a befaco out, not the latest version, but an older one that works great. It's got most of your wants except the effects loop - not sure why you'd want that in an out module, that's what mixers are for.

Re: performer (or is it per|former?) sequencer build

Once in a while it's generally a good idea to pay for the thing. In my case, many years ago I paid for a boxed version of the cheapest windows 7 - and the validation code (or whatever it's called) still works on the latest thing, which I've got running in boot camp on several macs.

My eventide Space "pedal" also has a center positive power inlet. What madness is this? And where the fuck is the adaptor for it? I just moved, and can't find it.

Re: center negative vs center positive

The center negative thing is a weird choice that was caused by Boss for some reason deciding to do it that way, despite virtually all other consumer electronics having center positive adapters. They were the first pedal manufacturer to produce pedals with power adapter ports in huge volumes, so thei...

Re: Behringer VCS3

I have mixed feelings about this. The VCS3 was the first synth I got to spend some serious time with - they were the staple beginner synth at the TIMARA program at Oberlin. And they're really easy synths to get useable sounds out of, not to mention weird stuff. If these are priced right and are reas...

Re: Deckards Dream General Build Thread

Are all your chips seated properly, all the way in? Do any of them seem loose? Where did you get your parts - was it a synthcube kit, or did you piecemeal it together? Good high resolution photos of both sides of that voice board might provide some clues, if you can do that.

Re: Isolation box for guitar amplifier

Yes, the speaker has 8 ohms printed on it, solves that mystery. And yes, a power soak, whichever one you get, just goes between the amp speaker jack and the speaker itself. The THD Hot Plate I mentioned doesn't need power - although some of them do. BTW those red and white RCA jacks from your amp co...
