Re: Behringer VCS3

While here I have to respond to the idea this BCS3 couldn't be put into a larger case because it's all one PCB. It most surely could be done. To James I'd simply say so is the MME and the Crowminius clone. Some MME board sets were sold cheap because guinguin boinked the rotary switch traces. Some o...

Re: How to get 128 MIDI values to map nicely to filter cutoff

Doesn't one just use the 14-bit MIDI CC commands for this sort of thing? One command for MSB and one for LSB? Stuff like MIDI CC 98 Non Registered Parameter (LSB) and 99 Non Registered Parameter (MSB). There is a few different combo CC that have both a MSB and LSB component.

Re: Behringer VCS3

How many angels.. But still no one's commenting on the very real difference in use between the matrix with long pins as originally designed, and the too-short version Behringer went with. Edit: Those types of things will actually affect how you *actually* use it. Compared to the originals. Regardle...

Re: Best sonic quality Sampling module

I have a few Wav players in my rig - 4ms STS, Nebulae (both 1&2), ADDAC101, and Nutella and though those are not a wide spread of modules, I would have to say the 4ms STS is by far the highest quality of all of those. It can play and record a wide variety of bit depth and sample rates up to 32-bit/9...

Re: ADDAC112 VC Looper & Granular Sampling

I am wondering what's with the 16 bit / 44,1 kHz resolution. For example, Lubadh and arbhar uses 32 bit / 64 kHz and morphagene 32-bit float / 48 kHz. My old Ensoniq ASR-10 from 1992 was using 16bit / 44,1 kHz :hihi: As well how well they manage to deal with the crossfades / klicks /pops and digita...

Re: Leaving the rack: Drone synths!

The other slippery slope is jumping into the Axolotl or the ZRNA Akso and programming your own. Those cards are under $100 and have over 3000 modules in their libraries. You could make a killer drone box of your own with those. Customize your controls and more.

Just when I think I'm out... Does that mean pin matrices are back? Or potentially cheaper, because I think that would be cool. These matrix are custom made by Behringer and they may not OEM them to anybody. They are still passive and have all the problems associated with them. I would be much more ...

Re: Planning the modulars in a small case,look for advice...

Great solution! Seems that the top part allows to move the Case patched. Tight with some patch cords but most fit fine. I made a "Trunk" module that allows connecting 16 lines to the main cabinet with just ribbon cables. I made this into my main controller skiff. You can see that module in the lowe...

Re: Planning the modulars in a small case,look for advice...

Did you modify that Case or was it exactly 84HP? What a coincidence! I made a skiff in an Anvil Roadcase Briefcase and it was exactly the with of Vector 84HP rails, and they are 0.05" longer than 84HP. All I had to do is replace the hinge for the lid to make it removable. 6U with 2" left over. Anvi...

Re: Old rackmount delays

I have a fondness for the Symetrix 606 delay, maybe partly because I designed the metalwork and graphics, but it is a great stereo delay with TONS of hidden features that you can reach only through MIDI. They sound great and have a lot of controls accessible from the front panel. C64371E5-EC54-4A32...

it is smaller. If you lay the two images over each other and size the matrix to the same size (which also sizes the knobs to be very close, you get this as a the approximate size difference.

Re: fsr circuit design feedback

Here is a neat circuit form an old EDN magazine for making a digital SP4T switch. It uses four pushbuttons to make a "radio switch" like switching circuit but the switches could be replaced by gates easily enough.
