Re: Opinion about keeping or returning DFAM

Rollerbones wrote:I am a noob and bought a Mother 32 and DFAM. Then I got a great deal on a Ep-420 case and now reading more, I am looking at more independent modules.
But should I really keep the DFAM or return while I still can and get individual eyes modules with? Or should I just keep and build on?
LOL.

trying to confirm from the manual - it looks like each track can have polyphony, but when you do that you'd have to use predefined chords. but what I"m more interested in is that it sounds like you can record polyphony by choosing several tracks, and then you can change the track parameters (directi...

Ha. It's fair to say that Peter is a much better designer than he is a businessman. I've corresponded with him a few times and he seems like a decent guy. It's unfortunate that it's hard to make an honest living as a module designer if you don't have all the skills to be a one-man operation. All tr...

... Yes, the hybrid monosynth has a lot of complexity. But it's the closest you can get to a fully patchable modular in a hardware box. It also does reward your programming efforts. You can do stuff in the Spec that you can't do anywhere else. ... certainly there are good points to the instrument. ...

Nelson you could just convert the 32bit file to a 16bit file and then use the LD3 for it. Shouldn't make a difference for the data transfer over audio. Something like switch sound file converter would do the job. this is not my area, but can't you potentially lose information that way? Which could ...

Drat. can't do the Koma Komplex from the ld3. The komplex .wave files are 32 bit, which the ld3 (or, I guess, my other gotharman devices) will not accept.

will a cheap mp3 player play back a 32 bit .wav file?
