Re: Doepfer Monster Base Case Wrist Damage

I have heard that some planning has to be done to avoid some modules with jacks at the top being places in the bottom section below some modules with jacks at the bottoms. In some situations with some patch cord types, there is a possibility go them running into each other or at least getting into e...

Re: So I spent an hour with a Synthi A today

the patching is so weird and slow that it's less of an instrument of music and more of an instrument of science, hah. Same could be said about flute, sax or bassoon keying. Weird. Slow. I bet someone like papz or ersatzplanet could patch quite quickly and effectively. Exactly the same. Patching on ...

Re: List of Voltage Ranges of Modules

Voltage output ranges are easy to measure with a scope. Input ranges are measured by applying a measurable voltage and noting where the module stops responding. All the units I own with CV ranges form 0 to +5V just stop responding to voltages above and below those ranges. It will not be super accura...

Wait can you attach rack ears? If so you can just use an SKB-style case. No I can't, the rails I have has to be attached from the side panels of the case, is not like the tip top happy ending.

This would be nice as a spreadsheet. Columns for Manufacturer, module name, and checkbox columns for voltage ranges. The rows in sections for general module types. Definitely could be something as useful as Modulargrid.

It's not often I find myself in disagreement with ersatzplanet. Strongly disagree here. OP asked for minimal panel area solution.

Re: modern cv/gate recorder?

I was hoping for a full cv+gate recorder to preserve the gate lengths, timing changes, etc. From the webpage - "Any pulse of 'high' voltage received at the CLOCK IN when the RS-450 is armed or rec...

Re: modern cv/gate recorder?

There is the Analogue Systems RS-450 that is a CV and Gate recorder. It is not as extensive as the Roland CSQ-600 but if you go to their website, they have recomended patches that if set up would be ok for a single monophonic patch i.e. one voice. It is pricey at about $1,300... The RS-450 records ...

Standard jack with the power running through the normalization. Plug in any patch cord breaks the connection. Mark the jack appropriately to keep accident low.

For those I have used Dual filt...

Buy another supply and wire it to the bus board that is using the most power (dis-connect it from the other supply of course).

Re: End-of-chain Compressor/Limiter Options

Is there any particular reason to have it in your modular and not as a separate unit? There are many used studio grade compressor/limiters on eBay and Reverb that are under $200, many under $100 and not all 19"rack but some half rack modules too. Main brand names in the field too.

This would be useful for some digital modules that want to be rebooted to load new cards into (or when you forgot the Vulcan death grip button combo).

Doepfer almost exclusively uses normalized jacks everywhere so he only has to buy one part. It would be trivial to mod the unit if it doesn't come that way already.
