Re: Voice of God / MS-20 highpass bass-resonance trick

I can vouch for the bastl cinnamon being quite good at this albeit not perfect and the qpas being more than excellent at any eq-ish duties. The qpas requires steady hands as the resonance range is very wide but it adds wonderfully resonant peaks that have a clean and organic character to them. It ca...

Re: What's your most wanted "luxury" module?

Either a cwejman mmf-1s (which might be actually a justifiable purchase given it is a very useful and verstile filter) or a frap tools fumana which i have absolutely zero need for but my god does it sound good. Before listening to some demos I would have never guessed you could get this depth of scu...

Re: Pitch to CV options (I know I know, but can it be DONE??)

Excellent post above me! I tried the rs-35 and what annoyed me the most was the constant and unavoidable slew and drift when it tracked signals. And yes i used compression, low pass/band pass filtering etc. Maybe cool for a novelty effect but not for any serious tracking especially on bass. Now tide...

Re: Mutable Instruments Plaits

Re: CZ-101 style bass with Plaits granular formant osc

While i think the granular formant oscillator is quite special sounding (weirdly acoustic, especially with the lpg), it doesnt really go into heavy phase distortion territory how i remember it from my pdo.
Then again i never owned a casio, so i cant really speak to the similarities there.

Re: Why are people selling Mutable Instruments?

Interesting opinions in this thread. I tend to feel differently about most of it. I don‘t think MI modules sound like old plugins, as a matter of fact comparing the fm model in my Plaits to a verbos complex oscillator, i know which one sounds a whole lot better to me. Also comparing physical modelli...

Re: MI Elements as an audio processor.

Elements is only capable of mono processing. As you observed, the two inputs are different in that the red in goes through the diffusor and the envelope generator (hence requiring a trigger or gate) of the blow section while the green input directly enters the resonator. Which mode you prefer depend...

Re: doing stickslip sounds with euro

I personally would go with a stream of random triggers like for example plaits dust model or ifm dunst can produce and run it into rings. Clouds or any granulator with small window sizes will work too i assume. paranormal patroler it is very much possible to change both size and texture at the same ...

Re: MI Rings in non-ambient music?

Tbh i do mostly percussion with it, love it to bits! One thing i like to do for variety is feed a continuous signal to the input like some noise or really anything i can find then treat the resulting drone like a normal oscillator. You can get very aggressive and bright stuff but also smooth and mel...

While this may sound like a minor detail, trust me its not. The CSL has no attenuators for most of its cv inputs while the DPO has attenuators on every input! This makes a huge difference in both studio and performance use. You will patch more freely and spontaneously with integrated attenuators. Pe...

Sounds like a fun patch, percussion wise i could imagine adding a bit of gentle square wave audio rate mod to the fm or radiate inputs to get some more inharmonic content. The squares could also go to the optomix strike input and then the resulting output envelope could ping the qpas. This way, with...

Hey joey
I used to have this problem, the trick is using a quarter note clock with a 50% cycle ideally. This prevents any phase shifting and you can multiply/dicide the clock inside the module :tu:

You dont need any knowledge of synthesis to make sounds with any modules. We tend to flatter ourselves but the whole synthesis thing is really not that complicated and with most modules, a ten minute introduction will have anybody make some initial sounds and sequences. Id even argue that you need l...
