Re: What new booty did you buy?

Thanks to the Sale/Trade area, I've added one of these to my relatively recent exploration of NonlinearCircuits. It's in transit and
I'm ready to pair it with Blacet gear. Time Machine, Klangwerk, Improbability Drive. Maybe an oscillator or the phaser.

Re: Studio Chair/Stool recommendation

I'm glad that this thread about selecting a chair is no less well thought out or creative than any of the other technical topics we discuss. However, I offer a "less is more" solution. Get a light weight wooden cafe chair. The older ones tend to exhibit better carpentry & materials. You can repositi...

Re: Your fav Bug pairings

Here's a simple one. CTL2 (joy stick) and Dual Filter. Run X&Y from the stick to the filter CVs. The filters are in series, usually Low to Hi. Resonance pretty high so it will ping a bit. Feed it some subaudio pulse or saw.

Re: Case Dilemmas

New three row frame to show you. Here's the backstory: 1. My primary setup is a euro/frac "instrument" that's great fun for improvising with other players (prepandemic) or for instant analog/organic soundscapes. 2. During the pandemic I picked up some chaos modules and gathered up a couple rows of e...

Re: Eurorack Scopes

I dedicated an O'Tool+ to one setup and it's been perfect for the task. Now I'm finishing up a jam packed second rack which would benefit from more scope channels so I'm looking at those flat digital jobs. Rigol DS1054Z has 4 channels , 50MHz, for about $350. Impressive though one review complains "...

Re: Piezoelectric Transducer-Comparator Gate/Trigger Thing

I like the NLC Envelope Follower for that.
The preamp has up tp 20x gain, outs for preamp, gate, envelope follower. I use it with a piezo pickup on a metal percussion gadget.

Thanks, that explains a lot. I'd like to see the slew/VCA part of it as a separate 1u module.

Re: A somewhat selfish list of things I'd like to see Tom make

I understand the slewing with the VCAs. Wasn't sure what the switch was doing but I think I get it now, the four to one switch turns on one of the four slew-VCA channels. That could be fun. The Binary Block addresses 8 knobs. Two to the third is eight so three gates needed to address eight channels....

Re: A somewhat selfish list of things I'd like to see Tom make

I'm a little puzzled by this and may simply be missing your point. Why are there "three CV inputs and switches familiar from the BugBrand Binary Block and DDSR" when this is a 4 way switch? Two would be enough. I also don't understand how the switch relates to the sluggish (slewed control) VCAs.

Re: Self generating patches....tips and ideas ?

I made another one while troubleshooting some things. ChaosKit #57
I'm a little stuck wanting to add some sort of "song structure", still generative, without adding lots of gear. I think this will come from a small basic sequencer, maybe a switch, a couple utility bits.

Re: Chirper to eurorack

The Chirper has one 1/4" output jack. If you plug that into a jack on a module in your eurorack that will provide the ground connection between the Chirper and your eurorack. The one exception I can think of is that a passive panel (e.g. a panel of 1/4 to mini adapters) isn't connected to your power...
