Re: Experinced wigglers: Does it still surprise you?

.. am I still surprised? .... I damned well better be! ... it's the entire reason I bought the evil damned thing in the first place (since 1978, I am not a boomer though .. never have been, don't suppose I ever will be).

Re: Isolation box for guitar amplifier

a power soak gives the amp less voltages... ? Nope ... it's an electrical device that makes your amplifier "think" it's still connected to a speaker, you plug it into the SPEAKER OUTPUT of your amplifier (you may need to modify your amplifier with an additional speaker output to use one of these so...

Re: Isolation box for guitar amplifier

Im not so well read into the different specs of amplifiers, so I just provide a link with my amp: https://www.suprousa.com/amplifiers/blues-king-12/#specs It has a line out, but that is not for other speakers? Anyways, I like the idea of a more open design! It doesnt have to be airtight, dead quiet...

Re: How were sound effects done on Moog modulars ?

Thanks for the replies, but tbh i still don't understand how you use a 921 VC Oscillator as an LFO, would need to see some patching examples i think! ... it's just an oscillator running at "low frequency" ... usually beneath 20hz or thereabouts is where most folks call things "Low freq".

Re: Noob Q: What do I need to make a nice power switch/enclosure for my DIY case and DIY powersupply?

... plug your synth's power supply into a switched power strip ... a good one. Belkin makes one, all steel, 10 outlets, and 3kv of voltage spike protection along with a panel mounted (easy to access) manually reset circuit breaker.

Re: Looking for standalone sound design sampler.

How does something similar to the MPC 1 compare with the 1010 Music Blackbox? Price wise we're only looking at a $100 difference between the two items ($600 Blackbox .. $700 MPC 1). I'll do some of my own research on the MPC1 (or similar) but meanwhile perhaps someone could offer a brief synopsis on...

Patching a comparator or VCA -or both- before the hardsync input may prove useful. Oh yea huh. :) That does get the mental images whirling.
