Re: General Serge power supply/distribution

As some modules get combined behind a single panel, it is often convenient to run a single power cable to 2 or more PCBs. With the same thinking in mind, wouldn't it be ok to use PCB distribution for subgroups of modules (like a single row)? When a problem module is identified, it can be wired direc...

Re: Re:

Is combining PCB distribution and Busbars like this a good halfmeasure? Half measure is a bit optimistic, it's more like a tenth measure. All this example achieves is a good low resistance between the 0V of each busboard. The weak points are still the busboards and the wires to the PSU. The latter ...

Re:

FANS (if needed): Use a much larger fan turning at less RPM than 92mm. If possible, use a 200mm fan (preferably a "Noctua" .. which is the brand name). A larger fan turning at less RPM is a lot less noisy and still provides plenty of CFM (cubic feet per minute). Yep, the 92mm fan was just what fit ...

Re: General Serge power supply/distribution

So you keep saying "remove PCB power distribution." Is it a worthwhile halfmeasure to have busbars as a common terminal for several PCB Distribution cards? That would allow us to use the cables as they are without cutting off the molex connectors on one end and replacing them with eylets. We would s...

The Osmose is fully compatible with Haken Audio’s CVC (16 CV outputs) and Evaton’s µCVC (4 or 8 outputs). The connection is through dedicated high speed i2c, no Midi or USB required.

looking over your comparison chart it appears that
SpazeBoard6 firmware disables the sample recording function
and only allows playback.

Is this accurate?

Surprised not to see Blofeld in here? I can attest that the Streichfett, for example, can get aliasing in the upper register. It's less evident when you have the chorus/ensemble on. But play it dry and it is there for sure. But the Streichfett was built to be a cheap synth with only a handful of co...

There are a few filters that might help in this area.

NLC has an analogue simulation of a digital filter.

Switched-cap designs like: Bi-N-Tic, Bionic Lester, or Synchrodyne
might also get you in that realm

The A-101-1 is great because of the multi-input, frequency dependent cross-fades, and lots of CV inputs with attenuation including VCQ. Opto-couplers and an extra levelled output set it apart from its Synthacon inspiration. You can use the attenuated inputs to dial in odd mixes of filter types on a ...
